Kotobukiya’s Clalaclan, Nanako preorders open

Kotobukiya updated their vendor page this afternoon with listings for the pair, and Amiami soon followed with preorder pages up for Shining Wind‘s Clalaclan Noire (Noir) and a newly announced Nanako PVC figure from To Heart 2: Another Days. Both are scheduled for release in September, with Clalaclan coming at 6,090 yen retail with a sculpt from Otoyama Houjun (other details available in our earlier coverage) and Nanako to retail at 4,725 yen, 1/8 scale (16 cm tall), with a sculpt from Nisshii.

Kotobukiya announces Clalaclan Noire

The Shining series figure blog updated this evening with the surprise announcement of a new color version of one of the greatest PVC figures Kotobukiya has ever produced, Shining Wind‘s Clalaclan. This alternate color version was designed and supervised by Tony himself, and is still a work in progress – the skin and hair color will be changed from the sample seen below, as will the base (whiter skin, darker base). Starting with Kureha the plastic they’re using for character skin is changing as well to be more transparent, so that will be a change from the previous version as well. According to the post, preorders for Clalaclan Noire will begin “very soon”. Sample images below:

[ERO] Figure News: Kotobukiya’s Clalaclan is castoffable, but…

A courageous individual at 2chan’s mokeura board went ahead and did what was inevitable given the inviting seams around Clalaclan‘s chest region, forcibly separating the front of her dress from what lies beneath. As expected it is a process that results in some damage to the kit, and does not yield a finished product; thus it is an operation only recommended for those willing to void the warranty and do some experimental reconstructive surgery (or be left with a pair of vaguely defined and vaguely unsatisfying bosoms staring you in the face). Regardless of the lack of post-op articulation this is an amazing kit that I’d recommend to anyone who can still find her available – a rare home run from Kotobukiya that is rapidly becoming rarer. I wish they made them all like this… castoff pictures below:
