Sculpted by Japan's renowned "garage kit" artist Hisanori Satoh (Daikokuya-Koubou), these 1/8 scale PVC statues exude every ounce of the sexual style for which Go Nagi is famous.

SIF EX: Please Twins – Karen Onodera & Miina Miyafujii PVC Statue

What's a boy to do? One could be his long-lost sister; the other could be the love of his life! But which one is which? Fortunately, you're not faced with that dilemma because both Karen and Miina can be yours with these wonderful PVC statues from Yamato's Story! Image! Figure! EX Collection. Crafted by Japan's ZERO (CLUMSY CLAFT), these statues inspired by the hit anime Please Twins!
