Think of Spring with Shining series Elmina

Kotobukiya - 1/8 Scale

For some reason, those lucky few graced with a proper white winter season tend to complain up a storm about weather behaving as it should be. While I won't pretend to understand your hate for all things cold and wintry, if you're longing for the days of sunny Springtime, perhaps you can reminisce with this upcoming Shining series figure of Elmina.

A bit different than many series designs, Elmina is a bit more modest and a bit cuter than sexier characters in the line, but I still adore her look. The light green is a nice touch that isn't a shade often seen, and it suits her warm blonde hair perfectly. Of course being the sucker for thigh-highs and formal gloves that I am, Elmina manages a whole other level of appeal as well.

Of course the traditional Tony art style is captured as usual, so you'll already know if you're a fan or not just by the look. If you're looking to pick her up, she'll be arriving at a seasonally appropriate May for about ¥6,800.
