FULL REVEAL: Junko Mizuno's Kidrobot Black "Kuro Megami" figure!

As we'd previously teased, the gorgeously high-end production division known as Kidrobot Black are set to release a new 11-inch tall vinyl figure designed by Junko Mizuno: the fictional goddess known as "Kuro Megami" is born. And, as you can see in these pictures, it will be worth every penny in the $400 price tag!
The sculpt on this piece is intricate and flawless; every element giving off a firm Junko Mizuno vibe, but especially the flower adorned hair (obviously). The two small guards, an owl and a fish, are cast in transparent vinyl and have clear chains that can be held in any of "Kuro Megami's" six diminutive hands.
The transparent areas over "Kuro Megami's" breasts and womb encapsulate symbolic elements of her birth and death divinity: a skull and a heart in the breasts and a serpent within the womb. This stunning piece is set to be released on November 20, 2012 in a limited edition of 200 copies. Each piece is hand-numbered with the artist’s signature engraved on the bottom. Like most Kidrobot Black releases, it will be exclusive to black.kidrobot.com and select retailers worldwide.
