With Azur Lane gaining more and more popularity in Japan, local figure manufacturers keep portraying its shipgirls.
Chiba-based manufacturer Mimeyoi just made a brand new figure available for pre-order, portraying the Royal Navy’s yandere battleship Duke of York.
You can find it on Ami Ami and she looks really gorgeous, but she won’t come cheap. The price is 31,350 yen, which translates into approximately $282.
The price is certainly justified by her scale, which is a rather massive 1/4, resulting in 33 cm of lovely PVC and ABS despite the fact that she’s sitting.
She’s scuplted by jarel in collaboration with CREAME, while the prototype painted by Nana Moriyama.
