Clayz’s Tama-nee, Sasara preorders open

A pair of figures from Clayz that we first saw announced at Hobby Channel several months ago finally hit the preorder circuit yesterday: their Kousaka Tamaki and Kusugawa Sasara (school uniform versions) from To Heart 2. Both are sculpted by Miyakawa Takeshi (T’s System) and both are scheduled to retail in October at 1/6 scale (height unspecified) and 6,090 yen. Neither figure is known to be castoffable. Images of both can be found below:

Catching Up: Dakimakura

The process of filling in the gaps from the past two months has to start somewhere, and there could be much worse places to start than the esoteric world of the hug pillow. In addition to standard retail releases this summer’s Comiket once again brought a bumper crop of doujin works to the field, so many that it would be impossible to cover them all here – so I’ll content myself with hitting a few of the more awesome highlights:

Griffon’s maid/school swimsuit Sasara in PVC

Hot on the heels of their nekomimi Kanu Griffon has announced the second PVC conversion of a resin kit they had for sale at the recent WHF Ariake 18, the Morikawa Hiroaki-sculpted Kusugawa Sasara (school swimsuit maid ver.) from To Heart 2. This PVC incarnation is scheduled for release in September at 6,720 yen retail and 1/7 scale (precise size undisclosed); this kit follows Griffon’s Maaryan-senpai as the second in their “To Heart 2 swimsuit series”.

Wafuudou Ganguten’s Kusugawa Sasara preorder open (updated)

Amazon does the honors this evening with the first preorder listing up for Wafuudou Ganguten’s Kusugawa Sasara PVC figure from To Heart 2. Wafuudou’s official site for the figure has been online for a little while now so we knew preorders were imminent; it seems shops were waiting until after Golden Week to make the listing, so now that things are back to business as usual we can expect listings to appear elsewhere shortly. She’s scheduled to retail in June at 6,980 yen (tax included), clocking in at 1/7 scale (19 cm tall), castoffable down to her lingerie and with a sculpt from Cerberus Project‘s Sunny Day. Update: image gallery below:

Griffon PVC announcements, event news

Figure maker Griffon updated last night with several bits of interesting news, including two new PVC figure listings and announcements of what they’ll have for sale and on display at World Hobby Festival Ariake 18. The newly announced PVCs are finished model renditions of two resin kits we’ve covered here in the past: the Harada Takehito interpretations of Demonbane‘s Al Ajif and Fate/stay night’s Saber. Both are scheduled for release in August at 5,775 yen retail (tax included), non-scale (15 cm tall), with Al Ajif’s sculpt from Yoshino Atsushi and Saber’s sculpt from Katou Taichi. Both figures are currently available for preorder on Griffon’s official site, and should be listed elsewhere soon. Event news and images below:

Figure News: Cerberus Project Sasara, Manaka coming in PVC from Wafuudou Ganguten

Fresh from the pages of April’s Tech Gian magazine (on sale today) is the news that the Sunny Day (Cerberus Project) sculpted Komaki Manaka and Kusugawa Sasara from To Heart 2 are coming in PVC from Wafuudou Ganguten! Both kits are castoffable down to their lingerie (in the original resin versions at least, and likely in the PVC as well), and both clock in at ~19 cm tall, are listed at 1/7 scale, and both will retail at 6,640 yen – Manaka in May, and Sasara in June.

Figure News: Clayz presents To Heart 2 XRATED’s Kusugawa Sasara

I could just bump the earlier post yet again but I figured this was worth its own original mention: last night Hobby Channel revealed that Clayz will be producing yet another To Heart 2 PVC figure, Kusugawa Sasara. Like Tama-nee and Manaka before her she’s listed at 1/6 scale and 5,800 yen retail, scheduled for release in the spring of 2008. Of the four TH2 figures announced in this Clayz blitz thus far this is the one I’m liking the looks of the most, though I’m still thinking that when it comes down to it Resinya’s offering may be the only PVC Sasara for me.
