SHION from Kotobukiya
Shion is a non-scale bust, brought to you by the folks at Kotobukiya. It is made from cold-cast porcelain, and is the first in a new series of Shunya Yamashita designed busts.
Not surprisingly, this figure received mixed reactions when it was first release. Quite why Kotobukiya decided to release this amazingly beautiful character in bust form remains a mystery to me. However, a non-official resin figure, based on this Shion (but with legs), is available to buy from various sites. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time or tools to build one, so I will have to settle with the bust. Boohoo.
Well what can I say about this bust? Chances are, your jaws had already dropped when you first laid your eyes on her – she is a beauty! Whoever sculpted her did a good job of recreating Shunya’s original design.
