Shining Ark – Sakuya – Mode: Seraphim (Kotobukiya) – Rerelease Info and Impressions
Kotobukiya is set to re-release their¬†Sakuya – Mode: Seraphim figure from¬†Shining Ark.¬†Sakuya is a 1/6 scale figure and stands roughly 35cm tall. The figure previously released in 2015.
Now here’s a pretty figure. If you’re looking for something tasteful for your collection, you generally can’t go wrong with a figure based on Tony Taka’s work. The sculpt looks high quality, and the subdued paintwork gives the figure a pleasant feel. The figure’s large size and wingspan might be restrictive, but no doubt she’d make a fine centrepiece.
Kotobukiya’s work is well known, and their quality is quite consistent, so I can’t see there being problems here. Since this is a rerelease, you have the benefit of being able to check how the previous release turned out as well.¬†
This is yet another figure releasing in the first half of 2019, but it’s one to keep an eye on. Aftermarket prices for the previous release were quite high (¬•30,000 and higher), leading to demand for a rerelease. If you’d been waiting for a chance to buy this one, this is your best opportunity to do so.
