Pre-orders are open for a new figure in MegaHouse’s Yamato Girls Collection series. This figure features Yuki Mori, wearing her space suit from Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love.
Yuki is 1/8 scale and sits roughly 12cm tall.
The figure is available to pre-order now from various retailers, including AmiAmi and Nippon Yasan. She’s scheduled to release in February 2019, at an ¥11,880 RRP (tax included).
This looks like another solid figure from MegaHouse. As you’d expect, the body sculpt is very appealing, and Yuki is wearing an outfit that leaves very little to the imagination. I’m not quite sure I like her “vaguely uneasy” expression (it just comes off as looking bored, really), but I don’t really know much about the character or the context for this figure. Still, I do like the figure on the whole – it’s appealing without being crass.
Similar to many of MegaHouse’s other figures, the price is not too hefty and their quality is generally consistent. Usually the official photos are pretty close to what you get, so I think this one will turn out fine. If you’re a fan of the character, this might be one you’d want to pick up.
On an unrelated not, I mentioned that this is part of the “Yamato Girls Collection”, but this is literally the only girl that I recognise from Space Battleship Yamato. She’s also the only one I can remember seeing figures for, so I guess she must be popular! Mind you, I haven’t really looked into the series – space operas are not really my thing.
