[Saint Cloth Myth] Saori Athena Premium - A new version

Okay folks, here's today's Big Shock in how Tamashii can surprise us by remodelling their prototype from an ok figurine to a superb collector piece.

You may remember the visuals at the Tamashii Nation Show showing Saori as a pretty yet somewhat chubby goddess of war and wisdom:

Well now the campaign is being launched with the release of Sea General Scylla Io and the new and improved Saori is magnificent, see for yourself:

Admittedly there's something about her that makes her look like a fragile little doll but it somehow adds to the true image of what Athena is to her Saints, something precious, something to be protected at all costs.

Now the bad news is she won't be available until the end of February 2009, as stated in the official campaign page. Still I think it'll be worth the wait.

Thanks to Tsume for the heads' up on this ;)
