It seems that Alter has managed to sneak in another Yagyu Jubei figure before their first one has even been released.  Jubei’s looking great in her new swimsuit, but acquiring her could get downright ugly.

First, this figure is a Hobby Japan mail order exclusive.  Second, it’s limited to 1,500 pieces.  Third, those 1,500 pieces will be distributed via lottery rather than first-come, first-served.

All of this means lots of uncertainty and added expense for potential buyers outside of Japan.  For what it’s worth, ToysLogic seems to be accepting a limited number of orders for Jubei and I will be trying my luck with them.
