President Japan’s “doll eye” Kureha details

Release details and color images went online at Sega’s official Shining World site this evening for the coming release of President Japan’s “doll eye” Kureha PVC figure from Shining Wind that we originally scooped back on April 5th. Like Houmei and Seena preceding her she’s scheduled to ship in September with the high gloss doll-style eyes that are the signature of the series, at 1/8 scale (measurements unspecified) and 8,190 yen retail. The sculptor is currently uncredited. Figure images 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:

Figure News: Kotobukiya’s April ’08 lineup unveiled, includes Sengoku Rance, Clannad, To Heart 2, DOAX2, Shining Wind (updated)

Kotobukiya updated their official site this afternoon with four five new PVC figures scheduled for release in April of next year! First up is Uesugi Kenshin, one of the main heroines of Alice Soft’s 2006 eroge epic Sengoku Rance (figure originally covered here). She’s due out at 1/8 scale and 7,140 yen retail. Next up is the newest installment in the Venus on the Beach series from DOAX2, Tina. She’s due out at 1/6 scale and 9,240 yen, and like her predecessors sports two different clothing configurations. A limited edition color version is coming from Tecmo. Finally we have a maid version Komaki Manaka from To Heart 2 Another Days and Ichinose Kotomi from Clannad, both due out at 1/8 scale (Manaka at 6,090 yen and Kotomi at 5,040 yen). I’m tempted by the Kenshin, but that face sculpt doesn’t really do her justice… if only Volks would put out some of their stuff in PVC. ;__; Update: Kotobukiya’s April schedule also includes their version of Shining Wind‘s Kureha, now up for preorder at Amiami along with their other April offerings. She’s due out at 1/8 scale and 6,090 yen retail. (no more)
