WHF Ariake 18: Cobra-Kai’s Saber

Sculptor Toushirou of circle Cobra-Kai is known for his epic large-scale works, usually featuring characters with voluptuous builds and his trademark heavy-lidded eyes. When I first saw the rough draft of his resin rendition of Fate/stay night‘s Saber at last Wonder Festival I momentarily didn’t recognize it as his work; she seems so far afield from what he normally sculpts. But now that the kit is complete it’s apparent that it’s none other than his genius hand at operation, and this is a kit that made one of the biggest impressions at yesterday’s WHF Ariake 18. See below for a full castoff [ERO] gallery:

Daiki Kougyou’s Toushirou-sculpted Sugimoto Anna preorder open

Initially produced by Toushirou of garage kit circle Cobra-Kai for fellow modeling unit THUNDERROAD STYLE, Senpuu! Midare Fundoshi Sugimoto Anna (Tokkyan Retsuden) is an original character that first saw release as a garage kit at Wonder Festival 2007 Summer (Thunderroad’s coverage here). We saw her in color for the first time at WHF Ariake 17, but had no clue regarding a possible PVC release until today, with Amiami’s listing. According to their update she is set for release in July, in fully painted PVC form, at 9,975 yen and 24 cm tall (scale unspecified). Great news for the Toushirou fans here as it was not at all certain we’d be seeing her in PVC… we’ll be keeping a close eye out for further news on the figure. Image gallery below:

[ERO] Figure Review: Daiki Kougyou’s Shiranui Mai from King of Fighters (Fatal Fury)

One of the highly anticipated figures of the latter half of 2007, Daiki Kougyou’s Toushirou-sculpted Mai finally arrived on store shelves in late December. Fans of large scale figures had a lot to look forward here, but questions remained regarding production quality and precise specifications – the castoff issue was resolved awhile ago, but today we take a more intimate look at what Mai has to offer.

[ERO] Figure Review: Yamato’s Dynamite Keikaku #001 Kanu Unchou from Ikkitousen

A figure we’ve been anticipating here at HD for almost a year, Yamato’s Dynamite Keikaku Kanu Unchou has finally arrived. Pairing the peerless sculpting skill of Cobra-Kai’s Toushirou with Shiozaki Yuuji’s erotic designs from an evocative scene of the Ikkitousen manga, will the first installment in Yamato’s new and ambitious Dynamite lineup provide production quality to match the design talent assembled? Read on for the thunderous conclusion to what feels at this point like an epic quest through time and space…

Figure News: Daiki Kougyou’s Shiranui Mai (black ver.) PVC from King of Fighters unveiled

First scooped last week as fallout from the Miyazawa Model Exhibition, last night Daiki put up an official listing for their Cobra-Kai (Toushirou) sculpted Shiranui Mai (black ver.) PVC figure from King of Fighters. She’s scheduled to go up for sale via standard distribution channels at specs similar to those of her standard issue counterpart, 1/5 scale (33 cm tall) and 14,700 yen retail. Production is limited to 2,000 pieces, and release is expected in March of next year. I like the look of this version, but at that price I can’t afford two copies of the same kit… ;_; Update: she’s now up for preorder at Amiami, and Daiki has changed their listing from 2,000 units to a 1,000 unit limited run.

[ERO] Figure News: Yamato’s Dynamite Keikaku Kanu Unchou PVC sample unveiled; all banged up?

Akiba Hobby represented last night with a review of a post-production PVC sample of Yamato‘s Cobra-Kai sculpted Dynamite Keikaku Kanu Unchou figure from Ikkitousen. Overall production quality is looking great, but one possible cause for concern is what seems to be the thicket of bangs now covering her face. They were there in moderate profusion before, but now it looks like she’s staring out from the mouth of a blue-fanged Tyrannosaurus Rex with very bad orthodontics. Comparison shots below:
