STORY! IMAGE! FIGURE! EX: Yamato Announces the Next Two Chapters in Its Popular Series: Eggplant-sama & Ringo Noyamano

Torrance, CA, April 15, 2008 – Yamato is pleased to announce the next two chapters in its Story! Image! Figure! EX PVC statue collection: Eggplant-sama from okama's Food Girls and Ringo Noyamano, the Masked HENTAI from Oh! Great's Air Gear.

SIF EX: Food Girls – Eggplant-sama
Somehow, we don't think this is what mom had in mind when she told us to eat our vegetables... Meet Eggplant-sama from manga-ka okama's slightly naughty illustrated book Food Girls. The latest in Yamato's Story! Image! Figure! EX PVC statue collection, this little morsel is a faithful reproduction of a wonderful piece by famed sculptor Shuji Hagii (Studio Saru Bunshitsu Kasetsujo). Standing approximately 10.25", this 1/6 scale statue captures every lush detail of Eggplant-sama right down to her firm, yet supple… er, eh… eggplants... all ready to be pealed with removable top and bottom. Vegetables never looked so tasty!

SIF EX: Air Gear – Ringo Noyamano, the Masked HENTAI
Dignified, but shameless. Air Gear's Ringo Noyamano as the Masked HENTAI remembers to cover her face, but forgets her backside! And what's up with that bag??? This quirky piece of the leader of the Sleeping Forest and current Thorn King (Queen) from Oh! Great's manga Air Gear is the latest piece in Yamato's Story! Image! Figure! collection. Based on a piece by Yasuhiro Uchijima (essence.), this 9.00" PVC statue of Ringo Noyamano the Masked HENTAI faithfully captures the sculptor's unique techniques. Each part -- boots, bag, body -- have an irresistible attractiveness making for a cool, erotic figure which is destined to be one of the stand-out collectibles of the year.
