Megahouse's Morgiana dances her way to pre-orders
by Martin Siggers

We saw her pop up in scans a few weeks back, but now Megahouse's rendition of Morgiana for their G.E.M. range is up for pre-ordering. We also get a proper preview gallery and the revelation that, as was the case with Aladdin, first production run versions will come with a bonus super-deformed figure.

I haven't really changed my stance on Morgiana since we saw the scans, namely that it's a wonderful looking figure ruined by a flat, lifeless face. It's such a shame, since Megahouse appear to have nailed pretty much everything else you'd want, particularly some great swoopy clothing. As it is, I'm having quite a debate over whether to put in an order, even though I love the character. If you're game though, she's ¥8,000, with a release date of May next year.
