PREVIEW: Amagi Brilliant Park’s Sento Isuzu & Moffle 1/8 Figure by Kotobukiya

It was only going to be a matter of time but it’s here.  The first scaled Amagi Brilliant Park figure! I really enjoyed the Kyoto Animation adaptation of the light novel and pretty much fell in love with all of the female characters!  Sento Isuzu was definitely by far my favorite of the girls.  With her nice booty, sexy thighs and delicious knee-high socks.  I’d imagine there will be more figures of the girls coming …

Move Aside Suguha! Sinon from SAO II Is Here! Kotobukiya Figure~

Move Aside Suguha!  Sinon from SAO II Is Here!  Kotobukiya Figure~
