Arts Storm’s Shunya Yamashita Character Series continues this December with the release of Nasca, one of the more unique figures based upon Yamashita’s works. For collectors of Yamashita figures Nasca may look familiar to some and she does have many similarities with Revoltech Fraulein Pocco released by Kaiyodo. If they are based upon the same illustration or if they are supposed to be similar I don’t know.
I especially like the pose for this figure it is very sensual and revealing at the same time. The colours are also very soft made more so with the use of Art Storm’s excellent use of shading and highlighting.
As with all figures based upon Yamashita’s works there are the usual trademarks that make this figure a step ahead of the rest. These include the massive sword, sharp dazzling eye’s, revealing costume and erotic pose.
2009 is going to be a fantastic year for Shunya Yamashita fans, with most of the major manufacturers continuing their lines, Art storms Character Series (including Mine Yoshizaki) is looking to be the best in my opinion.
