Figure News: Zounds! Miyazawa Model Exhibition 2007 Fall FIGSPLOSION

This crept up on me with no warning at all: today was the fall 2007 incarnation of the Miyazawa Model Exhibition, apparently, and Akiba Hobby and Moeyo! Akibajin Blog were both out in force to cover the event. Nearly all of the major PVC makers were there, many with new or newly-painted items on display; it’ll take a little while to figure out what’s what, but from the coverage online thus far I’m personally most excited at the sight of Figma Kanu Unchou, Alter’s Kanu PVC, an alternate color Daiki Mai, WAP’s Garnet in PVC, this Rei (new from Wave?), a third C-Works Bible Black (Shiraki Rika?) figure, and a whole lot more… be sure to check out both reviews for all the action! We’ll pull together what solid information we can as it’s forthcoming. (no more)

Figure News Roundup: Saber Alter, Shuraki, Win-chan, Manaka cold cast

A few updates on figures we’ve been covering over the past few days: Solid Theater’s Saber Alter is now up at the maker’s official site, up at Goodsmile, and up for preorder. More interesting is the news that she is 1/8 scale, but she was resculpted based on a 1/10 kit (see the lowest picture in that entry). She retails in March at 6,800 yen (ouch) with a sculpt from Toda Satoshi. In Shuraki news, Vol. 2 Riu Meifeng shipped from Goodsmile yesterday and is shipping from wholesalers today. Vol. 4 Needa was also updated today with a first look at the interior of the artbook that accompanies her – very tasty stuff. Finally, the new Win-chan we mentioned earlier today is now up for preorder in both regular and limited edition colors, and New Line has a preorder listing up for a Komaki Manaka cold cast (March release, 1/6 scale, 24 cm tall, 14,490 yen retail) that justice demands see a PVC release at half the price. Justice! (no more)

In other news, Takasu Ayako and Emelenzia Beatrix Rudiger from Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo! are both seeing bikini-clad PVC renditions, Ayako in February and Emelenzia in March. Both are 1/8 scale, 5,800 yen retail and sculpted by Saitou Koushi of Megatech Body. Preorders for both the Little Busters set and the Mamoru-kun pair are expected within the next few days.

A quick note that INO Art Works: Velvet Skin went on sale on the 17th as planned, and is in stock and shipping now from wherever fine artbooks are sold (HD has an Amazon affiliate but that’s neither here nor there).

An official Core Magazine preview of the book is now online as well, thanks to H-Gurl for spotting it! (no more)
