Akira (BOME) Vol.26

August 18, 2008

This figure of Akira is the FINAL PVC figure made by BOME. The sticker on the packaging has BOME’s symbol with a big tear on it, I can’t read japanese but there is a little “see you…” on there (see the last photo for the sticker). I’m pretty sad BOME will no longer be making PVC figures, he is pretty much my inspiration for collecting figures!! I fell in love with his Teresa and Chidori Full Metal Panic set and since then I kept a curious eye on the figure scene. Also he is the only person to make a PVC figure of Aya (Tenjho Tenge) that I liked. I’ll really miss his affordable and lovely figures. Although truth be told a few of the ladies he made her a bit too sexy for my collection.
