Yoko Real Image Version (よーこ りあるいめーじばーじょん) By Max Factory

May 19, 2009

Gurren Lagaan

Gurren Lagann takes place in a future where human beings have been forced under Earth’s surface and live in isolated subterranean civilizations. These “villages” have no contact with the surface world or other villages. Because frequent earthquakes damage infrastructure, the villages must constantly extend deeper into the earth — individuals relegated to this task are known as “diggers”.

The discovery of large robots, the ‘Gurren’, terrorising the surface of the earth, and the use of a small drill key that can be used to activate a small robot named ‘Lagann’ to defeat them joins the fates of the three main characters of this series: Simon, Kamina and Yoko.

Now, Max Factory has produced a realistic take on Yoko, the sniper of Team Gurren. As a slightly different image to the original work, Yoko has been sculpted in a more realistic manner, creating a new exquisite presence.

Yoko

From the details on her tight hot-pants and knee-socks to the smallest of details on her fingertips and facial expression – Yoko has been brought to life as a zealous 1/6 scale PVC figure.

A visor is also included and can be attached to create a more stylish image. There are many Yoko figures around, but this is one with a very distinct charm that collectors are bound to fall in love with.

Retailing at ¥9800 to be released in September 2009, this is certainly one hot babe to look out for in the coming months!

If you don’t already know, this sexy number is Black Rock Shooter, brought to beautiful 1/8 scale (290mm height) life by GoodSmile.

brsg

She has been sculpted holding her huge Rock Cannon, in an striking pose that draws out her mysterious charm. Her flowing hair and jacket, as well as her weapon and beautiful stand have all been carefully sculpted – even the smallest of details have had careful attention paid to them, making this a top quality figure from anybody’s viewpoint.

brse

The original illustration by huke, “BLACK ROCK SHOOTER” has been brought to life! When ryo first saw huke’s illustration, he was inspired to compose a song based on the image, huke then created a PV for that song, which became a huge hit online. Even a CD has been released! Heres the MTV:

Pretty cool, huh?
