[Figure Photos] Skyclad Observer – Kurisu Makise

Kurisu Makise is from the anime Steins;Gate, which was based on a VN for the 360/PC/PSP by 5pb and Nitro+.

Kurisu’s fast becoming one of my most favorite female characters thanks to her being a true genius (she’s a Neuroscientist!) and her cute dorky side.

Preorders for the next wave of Kaiyodo‘s Revoltech figure releases for March 2008 have also shown up: No. 046 Starscream and No.047 Hot Rodimus from The Transformers! They will retail for 1,995 Yen each. In other Revoltech-related news, Kaiyodo has announced that they will be releasing their Revoltech Gurren Lagann figure at the upcoming Wonder Festival 2008 Winter event, 3 months before the official release date! I wonder how much it’ll be sold for at Yahoo!Auctions.jp afterwards. x_x
