For those of you who have been reading lainspotting since the early days, here's some actual lain news for a change.
A new 6 inch PVC Lain figure by Vice has been announced, scheduled to be released in late May. It is already available for pre-order at various online retailers.
Check out the official website for the figure. On that site, the figure is listed as costing 6510 Yen.
Here is an image of the figure (taken from the official site) followed by the original source image (from an omnipresence in wired, image courtesy of Per Hedbor's Serial Experiments Lain: Root)
I'll post better pictures of the figure in May.
