This rather appealing figure version of Index, the heroine of A Certain Magical Index, is on the verge of release and looks to be the benchmark for future Index moe figures (at least until the inevitable cosplay variants), so a closer look is worthwhile.
It is also possible to strip off her clothes…
The cat, Sphinx, is also included.
It looks to be a gorgeous figure, but her wretched safety pins seem to causing problems for both illustrators and figure sculptors.
In this case, the pins look to be the weakest element of the figure; I can’t help but wonder why they didn’t opt for actual miniature safety pins, rather than the ugly filled in ones we see. The official shots you see here are the same as the actual product, of which some sample photos are available.
Still, nobody will likely hold this against her, and it is after all possible to disrobe her…
The figure itself, by Kotobukiya, is due towards the end of the month, and will be around the ¥6,000 mark.
