We predicted in yesterday’s Miyazawa Model Exhibition news roundup that Kanu and Reinforce would be up for preorder soon, and WHAM – here they are! Moe Soul is the first up to the plate with the listings for both. Alter’s Kanu Unchou PVC figure from Ikkitousen is set for release in April 2008 at 7,140 yen and 1/8 scale (21.5 cm tall), with an age rating of 15+… this means castoff, right? Right? Reinforce Zwei from Nanoha is also up for an April release, non-scale (19 cm tall) and 6,090 yen retail. She’s also listed with a 15+ age rating, though I have no idea why… pictures below (Updated!):

If Kanu isn’t castoff I’ll eat my hat, which would suck because I’d have to go out and buy a hat first.

Update: Kanu up at Amiami now, complete with gallery:

On second thought I’m not quite as sure about her castoff potential, being reminded of the fact that Alter has never produced an upper body castoff before. Still, if her shirt’s not removable I’ll find some sort of hat to eat – perhaps a hat of meat?

Reinforce is up at Amiami as well.
