She’s scheduled for release in September at 7,140 yen and 20 cm tall (non-scale), with a castoffable bra part. An alternate color Olive limited edition is also planned. The sculptor is currently uncredited. Figure images below:

Figure Review: Shuraki vol. 5 – Rizfis (Rize) Luttiva Mente

The first round of the explosively popular Shuraki multimedia figure series concludes with the appearance of Rize, Italian Shuraki and member of the mysterious White Raven organization. Armed with a massive halberd and clad in a diaphanous blue gown, her design is surely a match for any of her predecessors – but how does she compare in figure form? Read on for the final installment in our Shuraki review series (until the second batch is announced):

Figure Review: Shuraki vol. 4 – Nida (Needa) Schuetlich

Volume four in the wildly popular series of Shuraki multimedia figures is in some respects a return to more familiar territory, as design duty for Nida was entrusted to the ubiquitous Yamashita Shunya. His designs have been adapted in figure form by just about every major PVC manufacturer in the past few years, but as the first Yamashita offering from Goodsmile there was curiosity regarding how the maker would handle the adaptation compared to those with longer track records. As we’ve come to expect with this series the result is very favorable indeed:

Figure Review: Shuraki vol. 3 – Char (Shall) Rhousemann

Our Shuraki figure review series continues in this third installment featuring French-themed villainess Char Rhousemann. The Shuraki frenzy that consumed figure fans through much of 2007 had cooled somewhat by the time she came out in January of this year, but with Needa recently released and Rize coming at the end of the month it’s high time to get back into the thick of things. Check out our Mishiro Akatsuki and Riu Meifeng reviews first (if you haven’t already, or need a refresher on what the Shuraki series is), and then continue the saga with our look at the contents of Char’s multimedia package:

Figure Review: New Line’s Kousaka Tamaki (private ver.)

I had never purchased a New Line figure before this one was announced (in the past they were primarily known for expensive cold casts whose looks never quite fit my budget), but when the fishnet version of their “private” Kousaka Tamaki was announced my willpower crumbled and I placed the preorder. Preview shots hinted at a figure that positively exuded erotic pheromones, and it was with high hopes that I embarked upon this review following the figure’s release last month. While ultimately the finished product isn’t quite as impressive as the prototype shots I’m still quite happy with the end result, explored in detail below:

Hobby Stock’s Tsuzuri preorder open

The official blog of online figure and otaku goods retailer Hobby Stock updated this morning with the news that preorders would commence for their store-limited Lycoris Radiata Tsuzuri PVC today (April 21st) at noon, and indeed they have! We now have complete release details for the figure, as well as castoff images (reproduced below): the figure will ship in September at 1/8 scale (18 cm tall), with a sculpt from Hiroman (homepage) and production cooperation from Alter. The retail price is 8,190 yen (tax included), but for preorders placed by midnight on April 27th the price is reduced to 7,665 yen. Those interested in purchasing internationally will have to do so through a proxy service, as the figure is confirmed as available exclusively through Hobby Stock’s online shop. Image gallery below:

Organic presents Umisho Amuro, Mirei PVCs

Amiami’s evening update tonight included a pair of new PVCs from figure maker Organic which were a bit of a surprise: Ninagawa Amuro and Mirei Shizuoka from Kenkou Zenra-kei Suieibu Umishou (aka. Umisho). Both are castoffable, 1/8 scale, and scheduled to retail at 7,140 yen, with Amuro coming in June and Mirei coming in July; sculptor and precise height information are currently unknown. Images of the pair are reproduced below:

[ERO] Figure News: To Heart 2 XRATED Kousaka Tamaki (private ver.) coming in PVC from New Line

A surprise bit of sexy figure news this evening from maker New Line, as Getchu just put a listing up for an incredibly erotic PVC rendition of To Heart 2‘s Kousaka Tamaki. She’s available in both a regular grey stocking version and an Irisawa limited fishnet version, both scheduled for release on April 30th of next year at 26 cm tall (1/6 scale?) and 8,190 yen retail. The sculpt is from New Line regular Goemon, and unless I’m much mistaken this is the first general release PVC from a maker formerly known only for their cold casts; we’ll be watching development with considerable interest as this is the first Tama-nee that has caught my attention since Daiki’s offering earlier this year.
