Yamato recently announced their rumored PVC version of Dice Caramel’s Velvet garage kit.  I would much rather have seen Dice’s killer Kotona sculpt receive the PVC treatment, but this nicely-detailed Odin Sphere specimen will have to do.

I’m not sure how they decide a figure is “non-scale”, but I’m pleased to see that she’s in the large-scale range.  250 mm tall seems comparable to other 1/6 offerings.

My experience with Yamato is limited to their 1/8 Motoko Aoyama (Love Hina) figure, which was cheap in every sense, so I’ll be curious to see if this premium-priced figure can match the fit and finish of the top-tier manufacturers.
