Runners of Kotobukiya's 1/1 HoiHoi-san

One of the most important question about Kotobukiya's plamo kit Ichigeki Sacchu!! HoiHoi-san LEGACY 1/1 ID-3 HoiHoi-san is (kind-of) answered I believe: her runners ^^;

Currently on display at Kotobukiya's special store.

From what I see,
- the three different eye expressions sit on the "inner" faces which are molded on the white runner, to be snapped onto an "outer" face molded in flesh color.
- Being the prototype, I believe the pupils are not painted at the moment. Given that Kotobukiya's kits uses no foil stickers, I believe the final release will have them painted, all the three pairs of pupils.
- (from above) As with the designation code on HoiHoi-san's apron, also molded on the same white runner as the pupils.
- All weapons and accessories on the same black runner, unpainted. This one I'm not too sure, as there are weapons in previous Kotobukiya kits which require painting, with special regard to SRW OG 1/144 Alteisen Nacht.
- All weapons and accessories on a separate runner also means easier reuse of HoiHoi-san's runners for future variations ^^

Highly anticipating mine to arrive. ^^

September release, 3,150 Yen (inclusive of tax).
