Pre-order Medicom Toys 1/6 scale Gantz Reika Shimohira 12-inch Female Action Figure

Gantz (ガンツ Gantsu) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku. Gantz tells the story of Kei Kurono and his friend Masaru Kato who die in a train accident and become part of a semi-posthumous "game" in which they and several other recently deceased people are forced to hunt down and kill aliens armed with a handful of futuristic items of equipment and weaponry.

Reika Shimohira (下平 玲花 Shimohira Reika) is a beautiful, young and popular idol. Like almost everyone else, she is caught in the line of fire during Izumi's killing spree in Shinjuku. She develops a crush on Kurono after seeing him in action during her first night as a participant in the game. Surprisingly enough, she proves to be a formidable opponent against the Aliens.

This is the 1/6 scale Reika Shimohira 12-inch Female Action Figure from Gantz by Medicom Toys. Obviously the black skin-tight leather-like outfit she is wearing is going to restrict her movements a LOT. Plus Medicom and leather is never a good thing :( be warned!

Anyway, if the leather outfit does disintegrate, you could still end up with a pretty accurate Reika Shimohira female figure ;p because going by my search on google, most of the images featured of her seems to suggest she much prefers to be clad in less haha

One thing you have to give to Medicom Toys, they always seem to get the anime look spot on. Reika looks pretty hot as an anime female figure, not like some of those Trannies some other 1/6 companies try to sell us

Still, Medicom stuff don't come cheap and you really must want it bad to part with that much moolah for that few items. SIGH, I've been there before but am much wiser nowadays

Not too sure how her weapons work but this Medicom Toys 1/6 scale Gantz Reika Shimohira 12-inch Female Action Figure does come with three guns and a samurai sword

You can pre-order Reika Shimohira at TFH now :)
