The February ’08 edition of Hobby Japan magazine has leaked four days before its scheduled publication! 2chan’s mokeura board brings the goods, and we bring them to you – a representative sample of the new goodness to come in the next couple of months, and updates of some items we’ve been watching. Warning: this post is not for the faint of heart or those offended by epic-class broad backsides. Or shota. =_=;;

Heisei Democracy Figure News: Hobby Japan February '08 preview

From left to right:

  • Kotobukiya x Niθ Plamo wo Tsukurou CUSTOM project continues
  • Gurren Lagann Yoko PVC from Wafuudou Ganguten in March
  • Enterbrain’s Manyuu Kenchou Manyuu Chibusa PVC from Cerberus Project (French Doll) in March
  • Trigger Heart Exelica PVC coming from Toy’sworks next spring

Several of these items are continued from last month’s issue. See the following posts for further information on the Niθ figure, Ru/Li/Lu/Ra figure, etc.:

Perhaps the most momentous news here beyond all the previews is the information that Gurren Lagann is no longer a Konami exclusive property. With Wafuudou Ganguten having announced a Yoko the floodgates are now open for other figure makers to pile on to the franchise, presumably, so we’ll be on the lookout for offerings from major brands in the near future.
