Dolpa 27 Volks USA Announcement: Shining Blade and Persona 4

This post has 500 views

It’s been just over 2 weeks since the official announcement of the limited Dollfie Dream due to be available at Dolpa 27 on May 6th, today Volks USA has confirmed that Shining Blade Dollfie Dream Sakuya and Persona 4 Rise Kujikawa will be available for lottery in US.  The most notable omission of the announcement is the Touhou Mini Dollfie Dream III Cirno, which is apparently not available for Volks USA lottery.  In reality, that’s not totally out of the realm of my expectation since Touhou merchandises are never really officially made available for sale outside of Japan… Dollfie Dream Sakuya Izayoi recently broke that trend by exploiting the loop hole of International After Event lottery, and I expect the same will hold true for Cirno, only time will tell for sure.

Volks USA will begin to accept lottery applications from Sunday, May 6th 2012 at 11:00AM PST to Wednesday, May 9th, 2012 at 11:00AM PST.  If you are unsure of how the process works, please visit Volks USA’s DP27 website for further assistance.

As usual, those of you who are not familiar with the process of acquiring a Dollfie Dream, you are welcome to read up my Where to buy a Dollfie Dream – A Beginner’s Guide.

Let’s take a more in depth look of the two Dollfie Dream set to be available from Volks USA lottery.

First one up is of course my personal favorite, the mysterious swordsman Sakuya サクヤ from the recently released PSP game Shining Blade, skilled in the ancient art of alchemy, who also served as the female commander of the Valeria Liberation Front.  Sakuya will also play a few cameo appearances in the Shining Hearts Anime Adaptation ~Shiawase no Pan~ as Maxima Enfield, those of you who can’t wait to get a glimpse of her graceful image may do so without getting into the game.  However, I really enjoyed playing Shining Blade myself and has been pondering whether I should write a review on it or not.

As I mentioned in the in my Sakuya Detailed Spec page, if you would like her to wear the earrings, please pierce them on your own.  After consulting with comrades with Kan’u who also came equipped with earring, Volks has never pierce the earhole in the past so this is actually completely natural for Volks to do.  I am going to buy myself a cheap practice head before performing the operation on Sakuya :3

Priced at $715 USD, Sakuya is definitely one of the more expensive limited Dollfie Dream, but I guess that is to be expected since she come equipped with her katana “Tempered Blade Keducayon”.

As for me personally, since Sakuya is just the right type of bishoujo for me, I am definitely going to pick her up!

Next one up is the rather unique and surprise entry Dollfie Dream Rise Kujikawa from Persona 4!

I was never a fan of the Persona series and admittedly don’t intend on diving into another pit at the moment since I will have my hands full this time with Sakuya categorized as a must have Dollfie Dream!

Rise has a rather unique face sculpt in my opinion, similar to Alna, Rise actually look much closer to that of a Super Dollfie.

It should be noted again, that glasses that were shown with Rise’s promo pictures in the Volks News 48 is not part of the accessories that come with DD Rise!

Similar to Sakuya, you will have to pierce her ear if you would like her to wear the earrings.

SCOOP!!
The “Glasses” necessary for “Mayonaka TV” are now under production! They will be available around Summer 2012!

Rise has a fairly cute sailor uniform, I might just be tempted to pick that up~

Do either of these Dollfie Dream strike your fancy?  Personally I am going after Sakuya only this time~

At this point, it is not clear whether Cirno will be made available for oversea customer, however it is my expectation that she will be available for the After Event International Lottery…

Those of you who are not familiar with the After Event International lottery event, please feel free to read up on my Where to buy a Dollfie Dream – A Beginner’s Guide.  As usual, I will keep everyone up-to-date as soon as more information become available.
