Kotobukiya announces gothic lolita Ayanami Rei

Figure maker Kotobukiya updated this afternoon with a vendor listing for a new Ayanami Rei (gothic lolita “noir” version) PVC figure from Neon Genesis Evangelion. She’s set for release in October at 7,140 yen and 1/7 scale (height unspecified), with a sculpt from Nishimura Naoki (Pilot). She’s designed to match Kotobukiya’s earlier released gothic lolita Asuka, and her hat is removable. Images below:

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:

Figure News: Griffon’s gothic lolita Haruhi, Yamato’s Doubutsu Nee-chan Inu Anne-Rose unveiled

Two pieces of news on the PVC front this evening: first is word from Griffon that their gothic lolita Haruhi kit from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu is scheduled for release in PVC. She’s 1/7 scale with a retail price of 7,500 yen, and currently without a release date specified; currently only Griffon has her available for preorder on their site but presumably other retailers will carry her as well. Sculpt from Yamamoto Masahiro. Next, word is in from Yamato that the alternate color version of Aruma we’ve seen lurking around for a month or so is dubbed Anne-Rose, and will see release in April of next year at 7.140 yen and 30 cm tall (1/6 scale?). Sculpt is from Tandem Twin, and preorders are expected shortly. (no more)

Figure News: Orchid Seed’s Shiori enters full preorder, amaloli Ryofu Housen announced; Q-six’s Linda kit sells out

After her unveiling yesterday on Orchid’s official site we assumed it would only be a matter of (short) time before her preorder became widely available, and it seems we were right: Hobby Stock has a preorder listing up today for Orchid Seed’s Tsuzuki Shiori (bikini ver.) PVC figure, with other shops presumed to follow shortly. I’ll be watching Amiami like a hawk… In other news from Orchid, they’ve announced a new “amaloli” color version of their recently released gothic lolita Ryofu Housen PVC figure. This pink dress version is apparently limited to sale via wholesale supplier Shinpo, and release is expected in the spring (preorders close on January 25th) at 6,800 yen retail. On the garage kit side of things, the Linda-designed Q-Six resin kit we reported on earlier this month went up for preorder and back down again with astonishing speed, with the first wave of production shipping on the 28th. Horribly color-reduced GIF images of the [ERO] kit can be found here. We’ll be on the lookout for further news on all of these items as it comes to light. (no more)

[ERO] Figure Review: Orchid Seed’s Ryofu Housen (gothic lolita ver.) PVC from Ikkitousen
