Preview | Beat: Super Sonico (Swimsuit Ver.)

Figure maker Beat is set to release this new 1/6th scale figure of Sonico (Swimsuit Ver.). Figure looks OK but It seems the colors are a bit desaturated in the official prototype images – which makes me think if it’s the actual color of the figure or if it’s just the photo’s post editing. I particularly love Sonico’s face in this one. Scheduled August 2014 for ¥8,800.
