Griffon’s Uesugi Kenshin preorder open (updated)

Griffon’s epic Uesugi Kenshin kit from Sengoku Rance that got me all hot and bothered when she was first revealed at WHF Ariake 18 is as of Amiami’s evening update today available for preorder! She’s scheduled for release from Griffon’s ecchi R-Line brand in August, at 1/7 scale (31 cm tall), castoffable, in completed PVC form, with a sculpt from Ikeda Ryouichi. Along with the August release date the big news in tonight’s listing is the price: 10,290 yen retail. This is about what I was expecting, and well worth paying for the glorious bounty at hand: Update: color images now online and reproduced below:

Figure maker Orchid Seed updated their official site today with a listing for a black hair version reissue of their Chichinoe+ figure.

The design is from the cover of Inoue Takuya’s Chichinoe+ artbook; further details are available at our review of the original release. Images below:

Arm your drills, ladies and gentlemen – Eye Up’s Kamina and Yoko

Formerly credited as a producer subcontracted to figure projects by other brands (notably Megahouse), today figure maker Eye Up announced the independent formation of its own eponymous figure brand with the unveiling of two items we’ve seen before in resin: Black Sabbath’s Kamina and Mesuka’s Yoko from Gainax giant robot anime Gurren Lagann. Kamina is scheduled for release in late August at 8,190 yen retail, 1/8 scale (26 cm tall), and comes with detachable cape and shades.
