Figure News: To LOVE Ru Lala PVC coming from Piccolo in December

News is in today that rookie maker Piccolo will be producing a 1/8 scale (22 cm) Lala Satalin Deviluke PVC figure, heroine of the popular Shounen Jump manga To LOVE Ru.

I’ve tried to be thorough here but a few circles will inevitably fall through the cracks; a continuation of the list will be forthcoming in the next day or so. Thus, in random order:
