Though he storyboarded an episode of Soul Eater and one of Diebuster, as well as the openings of Nodame Cantabile and Aoi Hana, it was a long wait between Kunihiko Ikuhara's work on Revolutionary Girl Utena and his latest anime series Mawaru-Penguindrum. The lag on plastic incarnations of Penguindrum hasn't been quite so extended, but you'll still have to wait at least a few months for Medicom and Beach Queens' upcoming figures.
Medicom's Vinyl Collectible Doll will add penguins No.1, No.2 and No.3 in December for 1,800yen each.
in 2012, Wave's Beach Queens, 1/10 scale series of ladies in swim wear series will add a figure of Himari Takakura, a terminally ill girl revived by a spirit in a penguin shaped hat.
