Kotobukiya to release 1/12 Christmas dress sets
Kotobukiya is planning to release 1/12 Christmas dress sets, which seem to be aimed for Max Factory's figma action figures.
The new upcoming dress sets are spotted in Kobobukiya's showroom store on the 2nd floor of Radio Kaikan, Akihabara.
Type-A is a set of furry coat mantle and furry dress. figma Haruhi is not included.
Seeing Haruhi wearing that makes her look like a queen or something (as if she isn't acting like one already ^^;)
Type-B is a set of Christmas cape and skirt. figma Azusa not included.
Retail price for either costume set is 2425 Yen. To be released in late November 2010. Apparently those who pre-order the costumes in mid-November will get some kind of small bonus 1/12 Christmas-themed item as well (1/12サイズのクリスマス小物), but there is no mention of what it is.
Interesting to see Kotobukiya making something to that appears to be aiming for Max Factory's figma figures to wear as costumes. Well of course the costumes can be worn by other stuff in the similar scale or size, such Kaiyodo's Revoltech action figures. No info is known regarding its availability for overseas market, and there is a possibility that this is for Japan-only, but please don't count on my words for that. :\
P.S. There are also 1/12 coats in the background behind figma Haruhi. Maybe more clothes and wearable accessories will be available from Kotobukiya in the future?
