This 1/6th scale figure of Makinami Mari Illustrious was based from a magazine cover illustrated by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. She was expected be released this month (March 2011) by Max Factory (According to one of my comrades, her release date was pushed back). The figure looks exactly like Mari from the anime. Its like she was taken out from the anime itself and transformed into a 3d figure. I hadn’t had the chance (again) to preorder her since I already had a set of preorders for the coming months. But I’ll definitely get this figure when I have the chance.
