It’s huge…!

I’m sure it must be a prototype or a figure that just went on sale… but which one could it be!? With such a huge smile on his face, it’s got to be something really great!


And inside was this wonderful prototype!

From the Touhou Project:
Ran Yakumo!

From the famous Touhou Project series by the doujin circle Shanghai Alice comes this 1/8th scale figure of Ran Yakumo, the nine-tailed fox youkai! This is the third Touhou project from Phat! Company following on from Chen  and Yukari Yakumo!


This is how she look from the back!

Her tails are so big and fluffy you almost can’t see her at all! 😛
Her trademark 9-tails are absolutely gorgeous!


Here is a view from the side!

It really is a huge, fluffy tail! Because this is a prototype the tail was incredibly heavy as well… I’m not sure how it’s going to be supported on the actual product…

Ah, I see! By making it hollow inside it’ll be a lot lighter! You can find out how the tail is supported here over on Phat! Company’s blog – it’s quite an interesting article and well worth the read!

What adorable eyes!

They’re very finely painted on – the expression all in all is very cute and detailed! The tips of her hair also have a light pink tinge to them which looks wonderful! I wish I could get her to make me dinner everyday – bringing it to me with a smile like this on her face!


Ooh! Very nice!

It almost looks as if she is supporting her breasts with her arms there – it looks really nice! I’m sure I know where everyone’s eyes went first – but also look at how detailed the sleeves have been sculpted!


This is how her feet look!

Her skirt is sculpted as if blowing out a bit, and the frills on the bottom have a nice Touhou feel about them! Her boots have an enamel paint job which looks great – you can’t even see the feet that easily but there has been a tonne of work put into them!


Her hat can of course be removed.

You can pick which you prefer or dress her up differently each day! The little seals on her hat are also very detailed!


The Yakumo household!

From the left we have Ran Yakumo, Yukari Yakumo and Chen! The two on the right are already released! (Well, Yukari is out in October – not long now! )

Fans of the Yakumo household – it’s definitely worth it to grab all three of these lovely figures!

She’ll be up for pre-order soon!

As with all Touhou products, you’ll need to contact Niconico Chokuhan, animate, Gamers or Tora no Ana for pre-order and sales information.
After she is announced at the Good Smile Company site, you’ll be able to grab her at those stores.

Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
