Hobby Japan has announced (via 4Gamer) a new figurine based on the iconic and buxom King of Fighters combatant, Mai Shiranui.

The new figurine stands at 1:6th scale (roughly 10.6 inches) and sculpted by artist Grizzly Panda, fans can expect the figure to release sometime in April of this year.

Here’s some more glamour shots:

It’s worth pointing out that the figure is based on her design and pose from The King of Fighters XIV.

Pre-orders for the figurine are now available over on Tokyo Otaku Mode (Play-Asia is sold out), for $237.

In related news, SNK confirmed they’re working on “lots of new fighting games,” but they haven’t confirmed development platforms and such. You can read more about that here.

The King of Fighters XIV is currently available for PC and PlayStation 4. In case you missed it, you can find our review for The King of Fighters XIV here (we highly recommend it!).
