So, every time I hear the name Odin's Sphere (mmm...Odin's Sphere..mm...er, um--) I get all distracted and drooly. I've actually to this date only played like, a half-hour of the game because my PS3 is decidedly less portable than my PSP and DS, and I'm never !@#$ing home long enough to devote myself to an RPG these days. But the design work in that game is amazing. I especially love seeing cosplayers from Odin's Sphere (rawrrrrrrrr, Odin's Sphere~~~).
Ahem. So when I spotted this figure of Mercedes, the Fairy Queen from Odin's Sphere (yummmm!), I pounced on it. She's part of Yamato's SIF EX line of figures, standing 18cm high. Mercedes is also due out this August, ¥8190 (about $86 USD). Not cheap, but she's gorgeous-- I love figures that are cool-looking enough in and of themselves that they don't even necessarily feel like they up your nerd quotient. Decor-wise I keep most of my anime stuff in my upstairs office, but this is a figure I'd be happy to put in the living room, y'know?
Anyway, here are a LOT more pictures from AmiAmi.
