Koto has definitely improved their facial sculpting with the upcoming Slave Leia.  8)

If I've deciphered the listing on this Japanese site it will be released in August.

You can order Slave Leia now at HLJ.com -

About $67.15 USD during the early bird pre-order phase (until May 26th).

Man, I have got to have that. I haven't been too keen on the rest of Koto's work, but that is awesome.

Wow, that certainly is a nice piece!  Every collector needs to pick that piece up as it is so iconic.

Looks like the cover of a record I once had...

I'll definately be picking one up, there quite a bit more pricey than your average koto kit though. The regular Koto kits usually cost me £28 + 17.5% Vat from the wholesalers.
This one is £45 + 17.5% Vat so the uk rrp is probably going to be around 80-90

Its out in November from what I've heard.
Fans in the U.K can pre-order from:
http://www.generationxmodels.co.uk
They don't have a shopping cart facility but if you email them they usually get it all sorted out that day for and there prices are the best I've found for the U.K

Says it's a Jan release from my understanding and if any fellow Canucks are looking for one please let me know. This is by far the best koto so far just looks amazing.
