Bandai Metamo To Love-Ru Lala, Haruna preorders open

We scooped them ten days ago, and now here they are, looking not nearly as freaky as in their original introductory shots on the anime homepage: To Love-Ru‘s Lala Satalin Deviluke and Sairenji Haruna, in temperature-based color changing “Metamo” incarnations from Bandai. Both are scheduled for release in late August at 1/8 scale (22 cm tall) and 5,040 yen retail (sculptor uncredited). Lala’s bikini changes from white to black, while Haruna’s changes from white to blue. Images below:

To Love-Ru Metamo Lala and Haruna announced

The official site for currently airing Shounen Jump-serialized manga and romantic comedy anime To Love-Ru updated its figure section yesterday with the news that Bandai will be producing a pair of “Metamo Figures” based on the franchise’s two main heroines, Lala Satalin Deviluke and Sairenji Haruna. Both are depicted wearing black bikinis that change color to white when exposed to temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Celsius, and revert to black when lowered below 16 degrees (Bandai’s “Metamo” gimmick at work). Both are scheduled for release in August at 5,040 yen and 1/8 scale. Sculptor information is currently unknown; prototype images from the site can be found below:

Figure News: Claymore, Lineage II, catgirl Tsuruya, Revoltech Rin, and prize figures oh my!

A bunch of figure news rounding out the day today: word is coming in from 2chan’s mokeiura board that Megahouse’s Claymore Clare PVC figure and Yujin’s SRDX Lineage II capsule figures are both now on sale. In addition Bandai has put a Metamo (color changing) catgirl Tsuruya-san up for preorder; she’s set for release in late March at 4,410 yen. Kaiyodo’s Revoltech Fraeulein Rin action figure is up for preorder today as well, with release set for February 1st; finally, GA Graphic brings us a look at the 10th “Prize Fair” that took place on November 2nd, which is presumably a fair where prize figures are shown (hence the name – brilliant!). The items on display come from six different makers and will be released between April and June of next year. Oh, and also:

[ERO] Figure News: castoff update – Metamo YUKI N., Resinya Sasara (updated)

A couple of small castoff status updates today: first from Moeyo we have word that Bandai’s upcoming Metamo Yuki that we scooped at the end of last month is cast in a separate piece from her dress, which may point to castoff of some kind (though the odds of anything detailed underneath are negligible). Also, word is in from ASCII that Resinya’s Sasara PVC (scooped in September) is in all likelihood bra-clad beneath her blouse. Rather disappointing for those of us anticipating a full castoff… 11/18 Update: Senaka Blog has shots up of Max Factory’s POLO System Fauna from Megachu in all her cast off glory, as well as sample castoff shots of the Guernsey version of Tsukasa Jun’s Holstein Hanako-san. Incriminating evidence below:

Figure News: color changing “Metamo” Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu Haruhi 1.5 and Nagato PVCs up for preorder

Word came in last night via Amiami that Bandai will be releasing a pair of new “Metamo figures” from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, an alternate color version of their earlier released Haruhi kit as well as a new sundress catgirl Nagato Yuki. The Metamo gimmick is that the figures change color based on the ambient temperature, the new Haruhi going from red to black and Nagato from white to black. Both are 1/8 scale (~20 cm tall) and scheduled for release in February of ’08 at 3,980 yen retail. The Nagato is pretty cute, but I’m not sure if the simplified paint job required for the color change gimmick to work is worth it… (no more)
