    Got $65 burning a hole in your pocket? Willing to defer gratification for a few months? Then you can pre-order this über-kawaii figure of manga heroine Ika Musume (Squid Girl), available for shipping this June from J-List/J-Box online:

    Heehee, DW!!! Yeah, I was thinking the same thing at first.... :oops:

    However, in defense of the J-List people, this figure was quite intentionally included in their J-Box ("safe for work") division -- their overtly "ecchi" magazines, posters, and figures can only be seen if you click on the "18 and over" J-List portal. Also, click on one of the two sans-dress thumbnails and you'll see that Ika Musume is wearing very modest one-piece underwear over a normal young-teen body (i.e., no giganto-boob fanservice).

    So I think this figure really is appropriate for cephalofans and non-hentai otaku of all ages. (Of course, I don't wanna think about what a bona fide perv might do with it -- but then again a bona fide perv might do the same thing with a My Little Pony doll :razz:)

    I was more amused by the optional face option than the cast of dress :grin:

    I was wondering about that myself -- I think they meant "optional alternate face". Then again, Faceless Ghosts are stock characters in Japanese folklore, so maybe her face really is optional. :goofysca:
