  • Today’s upcoming figure announcements are a mix of the blazing hot and the incredibly bizarre (with a dash of chibification at the end):
    • [BIZARRE] C-Works has another pair of Nekoko and Takoko PVCs set for release in February. The Takoko invites comparisons to [ERO] this
    • [HOT] We now have prototype images of Megahouse’s Maicching! Machiko-sensei PVC, and she’s looking fine. Expect her to hit the streets in late April.
    • [BIZARRE] At the end of February Yujin will be releasing an SRDX Yukino PVC from, uh… YUKINO. I’m not sure what that is.
    • [HOT] Also new from Yujin is this SRDX Iroha PVC from Samurai Spirits. Or should I say Iroハァァ? Color images of both Iroha and Yukino can be found here.
    • [HOT] (…kamo) Rounding out Yujin’s new releases is this set of Ikkitousen trading figures, set to debut in March. Hard to say much about them while they’re still unpainted, but the potential could certainly be there.
    • [CHIBI] Megahouse will be putting out a set of chibi Lacus, Cagalli, and Asuran PVC figures from Gundam SEED at the end of March. The same timeframe will see the release of this Megahouse Excellent Model Fou Murasame PVC figure from Gundam Z, which is neither particularly hot, bizzare or chibi.

The article on moe that I’ve occasionally mentioned over the past couple of months is currently at 5,340 words and is nearing completion. Expect to see a post later today or tomorrow at the latest. With that off my chest I’ll feel more free to get on with the backlog of other non news-related posts I have queued up in HD’s WordPress “drafts” list…
