[ERO] Figure News: C-Works’ Bible Black Shiraki Rika up for preorder, POLO System Wendy from Gun x Sword, etc.

Online shop Infinity Wonderland put up a preorder listing yesterday for [ERO] C-Works’ Shiraki Rika PVC from Shin Bible Black vol. 4 (first scooped back in November). This figure continues in the notorious tradition of Imari and Saeki, with a sculpt from Tainidou Tinykid and skirt and chest castoff configuration; it’s scheduled for release in April at 6,825 yen (size details are not disclosed in the listing, but she’s presumably 1/6 scale like her predecessors). In other news, an entry yesterday evening on the Goodsmile blog shows off the flexible shirt gimmick of Max Factory’s POLO System Wendy from Gun x Sword. This makes her a bit more interesting than originally expected… Finally, preorders were up briefly on Goodsmile’s official online shop yesterday evening for their Dark Elf Female PVC from Lineage II. She sold out within a few hours, but hopefully the release of this new batch onto the market will make her a bit easier to come by second-hand. (no more)

Figure News: Claymore, Lineage II, catgirl Tsuruya, Revoltech Rin, and prize figures oh my!

A bunch of figure news rounding out the day today: word is coming in from 2chan’s mokeiura board that Megahouse’s Claymore Clare PVC figure and Yujin’s SRDX Lineage II capsule figures are both now on sale. In addition Bandai has put a Metamo (color changing) catgirl Tsuruya-san up for preorder; she’s set for release in late March at 4,410 yen. Kaiyodo’s Revoltech Fraeulein Rin action figure is up for preorder today as well, with release set for February 1st; finally, GA Graphic brings us a look at the 10th “Prize Fair” that took place on November 2nd, which is presumably a fair where prize figures are shown (hence the name – brilliant!). The items on display come from six different makers and will be released between April and June of next year. Oh, and also:

Figure News: Lineage II capsule figures up at Yujin’s official site

Yujin put up an official page today for their Lineage II capsule figure set, confirming the news that the four piece set (plus one secret) will hit gashapon machines in late November at 300 yen per unit. The usual suspects don’t seem to have this up for preorder, but we’ll be keeping a close eye out for any possible means of distribution other than the typical plastic globes – at this price point even Yujin quality seems palatable if it means a chance at some decently sexy Lineage sculpts.

Figure News: Goodsmile’s Moetan Pastel Ink PVC release details pre-scooped, Dark Elf preorder delayed

The official Goodsmile blog presents details today regarding the release of their POP-designed Pastel Ink figure from Moetan. She’s 1/8 scale, will retail complete with diorama background at 8,800 yen, and Akiba Blog will start the full court promo blitz tomorrow with an exclusive scoop (presumably accompanied by preorder availability). In other news from Goodsmile this morning, the official web shop preorder of their Dark Elf Female Mage reissue was supposed to have begun yesterday, but has been delayed until further notice. Those thinking of picking her up may want to contact their proxy services now, as it’s looking unlikely that she’ll be up for general release… we’ll be keeping an eye on this. (no more)

Figure News: more from December’s Hobby Japan includes Lineage II, more Queen’s Blade, Manabi Straight

2chan’s mokeiura board is a gift that just keeps on giving, tonight divulging further scans from the as-yet unreleased December ’07 edition of Hobby Japan. In addition to Cattleya in color we have further Queen’s Blade news: the Medicos Entertainment trading figure set that has been listed on the official QB site for months is finally in color with a release date of mid-February ’08 (Nowa and Reina shown here); also Griffon keeps hammering away at their resin / cold cast lineup with a new Nix and designs for several other kits in the pipeline. In Lineage II news we have word that Yujin is releasing a capsule figure set of the game’s female characters at 300 yen each, and word from Goodsmile that preorders will be opening soon at their official online shop for the reissue of their Dark Elf female mage. Finally, news is in that Toy’sworks is planning the release of a Manabi Straight trading figure set, due out in late February. All this and more can be seen in the images below:
