The 47th Shizuoka Hobby Show begins today! While primarily oriented toward plamo kits, radio-controlled cars, train models and the like, the show also has a minor contingent of bishoujo figure representation as well (Kotobukiya has already announced a Kizaki Emi PVC from Kurogane no Linebarrels, set to retail at 6,090 yen – can’t tell anything else from that photo, alas). From the exhibitors’ list it seems Kotobukiya, Bandai, and Yujin are the ones to look out for; slim pickings, but we’ll update this post throughout the day with any news we find from the event. Update: a collected summary of Shizuoka Hobby Show coverage can be found below:
News gathered from Gentei Ichiba:
- Bandai’s B-Club is producing what look to be PVCs (?) of Gundam 00’s Feldt Grace and Sumeragi Lee Noriega, as well as a bunny suit Karen and a swimsuit Viletta from Code Geass.
The available information is spotty at this point, but those B-Club Geass kits are looking especially awesome. We’ll be on the lookout for better photographic evidence and firm news regarding release plans to emerge in the next couple of days.
