Figure News: Revoltech Expo preview (updated)

GA Graphic got a look inside the Tokyo Anime Center today where tomorrow’s Revoltech Expo will be held, and brings back a few preliminary scoops from the event: a Gurren Lagann Revoltech action figure is planned for May release, there is a Fist of the North Star series in the works, and a Revoltech Fraeulein Idolm@ster series is in production as well, with Amami Haruka due out in May and Futami Ami due out in June. We’ll be keeping an eye out for further bishoujo news from the event as it progresses tomorrow. Update: GA Graphic has posted a continuation of their coverage, showcasing the upcoming Fraeulein Revoltech line including the recently scooped Yamashita Shunya-designed POCCO (fourth in the series, due out on April 1st). Update 2: even more pictures can be found at the Akiba Hobby preview here. (no more)

Figure News: Orchid Seed’s Shiori enters full preorder, amaloli Ryofu Housen announced; Q-six’s Linda kit sells out

After her unveiling yesterday on Orchid’s official site we assumed it would only be a matter of (short) time before her preorder became widely available, and it seems we were right: Hobby Stock has a preorder listing up today for Orchid Seed’s Tsuzuki Shiori (bikini ver.) PVC figure, with other shops presumed to follow shortly. I’ll be watching Amiami like a hawk… In other news from Orchid, they’ve announced a new “amaloli” color version of their recently released gothic lolita Ryofu Housen PVC figure. This pink dress version is apparently limited to sale via wholesale supplier Shinpo, and release is expected in the spring (preorders close on January 25th) at 6,800 yen retail. On the garage kit side of things, the Linda-designed Q-Six resin kit we reported on earlier this month went up for preorder and back down again with astonishing speed, with the first wave of production shipping on the 28th. Horribly color-reduced GIF images of the [ERO] kit can be found here. We’ll be on the lookout for further news on all of these items as it comes to light. (no more)

[ERO] Figure Review: Yamato’s Yamashita Shunya designed, Cerberus Project (Sunny Day) sculpted, Creators’ Labo CL#014 Guitar Girl Arisa PVC

Cerberus Project’s guitar girl Arisa is a kit I’d been lusting after since I first saw her in resin at Wonder Festival Winter 2006, so when news came last July that Yamato was going to produce a PVC rendition of her the extent of my chortling glee can scarcely be underestimated. I’ve been in high tension mode ever since, wondering just how Yamato would treat her – fears that I am very happy to say were largely needless. Read on for a look at what turns out to be one of the loveliest kits of the year.
