Alpha Omega does To Love-Ru’s Lala

The official anime website for romantic comedy franchise To Love-Ru updated its goods section today with a listing for a new Lala Satalin Deviluke figure from Megahouse / Alter collaboration brand Alpha Omega. She’s scheduled for release in September at 1/8 scale and an as-yet undisclosed price, with a sculpt from Alter regular Yagyuu Satoshi. The single currently available figure image is below:

Figure Review: Alpha Omega Queen’s Blade Shizuka

When we first saw her in prototype at Wonder Festival last summer and later learned of her castoff potential, a preorder was mandated by some sort of federal law. With two of the top figure makers in the business collaborating on the project and a price that shouts rude epithets at the rising cost of oil (not to mention her demonic good looks), who could possibly resist Shizuka’s allure? Not me, which is why I am making this post:

Queen’s Gate Alice figure update (updated)

Update: preorders are now open at Amiami for Alice, Mellona, Ibuki, and Mika.

Original Post: Two slight movements on the Alice scene over the noon hour today: first is a Moeyo! Akibajin Blog post that scoops the resin sample of the adult Alice (“Boost” version Alice) we saw yesterday in the pages of Hobby Japan. She’s apparently now on display at the Kotobukiya store in Akihabara, and he’s got a photo gallery with some great close-up shots (though this one casts a discouraging light on her castoff prospects).

Second is an update at the official Alter x Megahouse collaboration Alpha Omega brand homepage, which presents a listing for the Excellent Model CORE Queen’s Gate Mon wo Hiraku Mono Alice (Arisu) finished PVC model that we’ve been tracking for the past few months. The page confirms information we’d previously reported on the figure (August release at 5,775 yen, Akatsuki sculpt, 1/8 scale, 14.5 cm tall, castoffable), and now that she’s online we can expect preorders to commence very shortly – likely later in the day today. This post will be updated once the first preorders are spotted.

[ERO] Figure News: Excellent Model CORE Queen’s Blade Shizuka up at Alpha Omega (updated)

With color preproduction images appearing in last month’s Hobby Japan it was only a matter of time before she appeared online in an official capacity, and today is the day: Megahouse x Alter collaboration brand Alpha Omega presents official pages for both the regular edition Excellent Model Core Queen’s Blade EX Koumanin Guntouryou Shizuka and her Hobby Japan limited alternate color counterpart Nukenin version. Designed by artist Eiwa and first appearing in the illustrated sound novel Queen’s Blade Bitoshi Gaiden, this 3D rendition of Shizuka will go on sale in April of next year at 5,775 yen retail and 1/8 scale (22 cm tall). With her up at Alpha Omega’s official site preorders should begin online shortly; a listing for the limited version is already up at Play Asia (though still display only) so it looks like they will be offering it as they have with past HJ-only figures. For a full preview of Shizuka including [ERO] shots check out Hobby Channel‘s coverage. Update: as of this evening she is now available for preorder at Amiami. (no more)

Figure News: Hobby Japan January 2008 leftovers

We’ve already scooped the bulk of what was new in this month’s issue of Hobby Japan, but after getting my hands on an actual copy of the magazine last night I noticed a few other odds and ends that might be of interest. Includes updates from Witchblade, Kimikiss, Code Geass, Queen’s Blade, Bible Black, and Nitro+ character designer Niθ; details below:

Figure News: Alpha Omega’s C.C. and Karen from Code Geass up for preorder

Hobby Stock has the distinction today of being the first to list the maiden launch figures of Alpha Omega‘s PVC lineup: Karen and C.C. from Code Geass. We reported yesterday that Alpha Omega’s official site had just opened with a showcase of these two figures (first introduced at last summer’s Wonder Festival), and as anticipated the turnaround to their preorder listing was speedy indeed. With Hobby Stock leading the charge other shops can be expected to soon follow; without knowing the numbers in the production run for these I’d advise a prompt preorder if you really want them, as the popularity of Geass (combined with the Alter / Megahouse reputation for quality) can’t be underestimated. Update: we now have confirmation of the listing, as they’re both up at Amiami and have been restored at Hobby Stock as well. (no more)

Figure News: Alter / Megahouse collaboration brand Alpha Omega official site launched

First announced at Wonder Festival 2007 Summer, the “Alpha Omega” figure brand that is a collaboration between Alter and Megahouse put its official site online today. Two figures are featured in conjunction with the site launch: the Code Geass C.C. and Karen PVCs that we’ve reported on twice before. They’re confirmed as due out in February of next year at 1/8 scale and 5,775 yen each; now that the official site is up I’m guessing it’ll be a matter of (relatively little) time before we see preorders for them. The vigil begins… (no more)
