Good Smile Company's new Ryuko Matoi is the height of fashion photo
Good Smile Company's new Ryuko Matoi is the height of fashion
by Martin Siggers

[ Spoilers ahead for Kill La Kill! ]

Back at Wonder Festival we saw Good Smile Company unveil a prototype for new figure of Kill La Kill heroine Ryuko Matoi. Rather than go for any of her more common looks though, the company opted to ramp up the craziness and produce a figure of her final episode 'Senketsu Fashion Week' super form, which I will never not refer to as Senketsu Hulk Hogan thanks to its red and yellow colour scheme.

Now Moeyo have put out a more comprehensive preview gallery and I have to say she's looking pretty good. As ever with these colossal 'ultimate form' figures GSC seem to have ladled on the detail and drama. The pose seems designed to take up the absolute maximum amount of shelf space possible, and that hair is approaching Yu-Gi-Oh! levels of awesome ridiculousness. My major concern here is that there's simply not that much for the sculptors to go to town on - after all, this is about as close to naked as an outfit can come. It's definitely a case where we'll have to see a more finalised coloured version before we pass judgement. If you're looking to catch the eye though, there's little doubt she'll do that.
