Diamond Unveils New Bome Masterpieces
Internationally acclaimed sculptor Bome expands his best selling "Monsieur Bome Collection" of sexy bishoujo figures, and brings two lovelies from the hit anime/manga Tenjho Tenge to toy shelves with new figures manufactured by Kaiyodo, imported from Japan and available exclusively in North America through Diamond Comic Distributors' October Previews catalog.
Bome is the world-renowned Japanese sculptor who worked for many years making "garage kits" before working for Kaiyodo. His sexy, anime-style women have been sought by collectors everywhere, and this release marks the first Bome creation to be molded in plastic, making it even more collectible.
The seventh addition to this collection - the Bome Bunny Girl - stands approximately 6.5" tall and features unique details and facial expressions characteristic of the "Monsieur Bome" line. The figure is scheduled to ship in blister card packaging in December with a Suggested Retail Price of $19.99. Please Note: This figure is not available in East Asia.
Two more noteworthy Bome releases offered in October are the Tenjho Tenge Aya Natsume and Maya Natsume Tokubetsu Version Bome Figures based on the Shonen anime and manga series by Oh! Great (Oogureito). The popular story of two delinquents caught between a conflict between their new school's martial arts group (to which the sisters belong) and the Enforcement Group that oversees it boasts millions of fans worldwide.
These "tokubetsu" (roughly translated as "special edition") versions of Aya and Maya feature all-new, original paint schemes designed by sculptor/designer Bome, and are not based on any pre-existing anime or manga versions of the characters. Each non-articulated PVC figure stands approximately 8" tall with base, and is similar in scale and quality to the other Bome figures.
The blister-carded figures are offered in the October Previews catalog, and are scheduled to ship in March 2006 with a Suggested Retail Price of $17.99 each.
