Please note that while this spotlight will not be covering the cast-off aspects of this figure, it still features a pretty scanty outfit. Hit the jump at your own discretion.

It is my hope that this post will serve to dispel any alarm that might come from the fact that I haven’t posted a new Tamaki Kousaka figure in… 3 days. This time we have Kaitendoh’s veritable ten-car-pileup of visual themes; the Bunny ver. of Tamaki. She’s wearing a swimsuit, sorta, but it’s kind of winter themed and the fluffy white trim is reminiscent of Santa, but it’s pink instead of red, and she’s got bunny ears and… Oh I’m so confused. This version of Tamaki was released by Kaitendoh in 2011 for ¥8500, as well as an all-white limited edition variant.

Not to be confused with the Kotobukiya version, Kaitendoh has also released a figure of Kousaka Tamaki’s Samurai version. This design seems to be having a spike in interest, as Orca Toys is releasing their own version in a couple of months. I’ve preordered the Orca version, so I’ll be able to fill a shelf with Tamaki Samurais. This also gives me an opportunity to explore the different interpretations of the character design.

Kaitendoh’s version came out on May 22nd for ¥15800 ($154 as of today), so it’s a lot more expensive than the older Kotobukiya version. It’s also a larger scale; 1/6th instead of 1/8th. Hopefully that means Kaitendoh is giving us more for our money.
