MegaHouse G.E.M. Series Himura Kenshin figure preview
MegaHouse's G.E.M. Series is planning to release 1/8 Himura Kenshin figure from Rurouni Kenshin to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the TV anime series.
Full body and upper torso shots.
Closer look on Kenshin's default face and hair
A short haircut version is available as seen in the last scene of the TV series
Battousai version (swappable face and ponytail), with sharper eyes and a more serious look on the face
There is also a limited version of Kenshin available for pre-order.
The Battousai face for this limited version has only one scar, as seen throughout the prequel movie Tsuiokuhen.
The normal face and the other hair parts that come with the normal version are available in the limited version as well.
Both versions are scheduled to be released in late June this year at official retail price of 6800 Yen, or 7140 Yen with 5% tax included. Both are available for pre-order on Hobby Search (Normal, Limited) and AmiAmi (Normal, Limited).
My sister is a big fan of Kenshin, and even though she's not big into collecting figures, seeing a new Kenshin figure sure got her excited. Now the problem is for her to choose which one to get, since she's not planning to get both. You know, like clothes, choosing between colours is a big problem for girls when they go into shopping mood, and this is no exception ^^; Well, she also has the ANA Unicorn to consider this month as well ^^;
