Kotobukiya’s Blanc Neige, Kurugaya Yuiko preorders open

Following up on the final prototypes recently unveiled for both figures, Kotobukiya this morning provided preorder information to retailers regarding their Shining Wind Blanc Neige and Little Busters! Kurugaya Yuiko PVCs. Both are scheduled for release in Septemeber, with Blanc Neige clocking in at 1/8 scale and 6,090 yen retail. Her sculpt is credited to “Kotobukiya”, and her wand and cloak are removable. Yuiko is also 1/8 scale, with a 5,775 yen price tag and a sculpt from Abira (no significant castoff potential here). With this paper circulated to retailers we can expect preorders to appear online today in the coming hours. Images below:

Kotobukiya’s Blanc Neige final prototype

The official Shining game series figure blog recently launched a parallel separate blog with identical content, and it’s there that the final pre-production prototype of Kotobukiya’s Shining Wind Blanc Neige PVC figure appeared this evening. This is the same version that was on display last week at the Shizuoka Hobby Show, and according to the blog post is the final amended version before she enters mass PVC production. We’ll be watching for full details when preorders open soon. Note that this is a different item from Kotobukiya’s earlier released Shining Tears Blanc Neige – she changes costumes between games.

Shining Wind Mao, Blanc Neige progress report

The official blog of all figures Shining updated over the weekend with a look at the two newest items in Kotobukiya’s Shining Wind bishoujo figure lineup, Mao and Blanc Neige. The Mao shots aren’t unique to this post (this is the same prototype we’ve seen at Akiba Hobby and in Amiami’s product listing for the past couple of weeks), but the Blanc Neige initial PVC prototype is seen here for the first time. With this up at the Shining blog it seems we can expect preorders for her to appear soon. Pictures below:

Two new “Shining” series figures announced

Recapping a bit of news from a couple of days ago, the official Shining series figure blog Shine na Blog posted with unpainted prototype shots of a new Shining Wind Blanc Neige figure coming from Kotobukiya. Little is revealed in the entry text (no news as to a release window, price or sculptor information) but it is mentioned that her cape is removable.

President Japan‘s Eye Ball blog brings news of the second recently announced Shining Wind figure, a new rendition of Kureha. The color prototype is pictured before final detailed color tuning, but provides a rough look of what to expect from the final version; again virtually no information regarding the sculptor, price, or release date is provided, though it is noted that her skirt is castoffable. We’ll be keeping an eye out for further information on both figures in the coming weeks. Images below:
