Yoko Asagiri steps up for round two of pre-orders

Griffon - 1/7 Scale

Despite the lackluster reception here when she arrived earlier this past Spring, Griffon's Yoko Asagiri apparently made enough waves to warrant a re-release in fairly short order. Personally despite the simplicity, I found myself rather drawn to the classic design, though it may be my unfamiliarity with the source material missing something, well, missing on Griffon's part.

I admit I am a bit surprised they decided to re-release her, though I suppose if you're looking for a figure with classic styling your options are pretty limited. I'll still say she's got her own sort of appeal, and I do like the sheen on her armor rather than having used a dull matte finish. It's hard to ignore that hair too, the sort of vibrant, unrealistic red that's a hallmark of the sort of colors seen so frequently in the past.

If you missed her the first time around, get ready to snap her up come March for about ¥7,600.
