Kurugaya Yuiko PVCs. Both are scheduled for release in Septemeber, with Blanc Neige clocking in at 1/8 scale and 6,090 yen retail. Her sculpt is credited to “Kotobukiya”, and her wand and cloak are removable. Yuiko is also 1/8 scale, with a 5,775 yen price tag and a sculpt from Abira (no significant castoff potential here).

Kotobukiya Nono, Tama-chan, Kudryavka, Leon preorders open

Kotobukiya unleashed four new finished PVC figures for preorder at their official online shop today, a few of which I’m betting will be big sellers when they see release in August (all four are August releases). First up is Nekomiya Nono (cat ears school swimsuit thigh-highs ver.) from Yotsunoha, coming at 1/6 scale (24 cm tall) with a sculpt from Abe Masato and a retail price of 6,090 yen. Next is Kawazoe Tamaki from Bamboo Blade, clocking in at 1/8 scale (18 cm tall) and 5,775 yen, with a sculpt from Kiohara Hidemasa. Third is Noumi Kudryavka of Little Busters!, 1/8 scale (17.5 cm tall) and 5,775 yen with a sculpt from Nisshii, and finally we have the odd man out with Leon Magnus from Tales of Destiny, coming at 1/10 scale (16 cm tall) and 4,410 yen with a sculpt from Tatsumaki.

Kotobukiya’s Suzume, Kamikita Komari preorders open

Kotobukiya updated its official site earlier today with listings for two new figures that we initially reported on last month: Suzume from Alice Soft eroge Sengoku Rance, and Kamikita Komari from Key’s Little Busters!. Suzume is scheduled for release in July at 1/8 scale (17 cm tall) and 5,775 yen, with a sculpt from Kajio Munetoshi. Knowing Kotobukiya’s track record it’s likely she’s not meant to be cast off, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for further sample images. Kamikita Komari is also due out in July at 5,775 yen and 1/8 scale (10 cm tall), with a sculpt from Takaku & Takeshi. She comes with an exchangeable twinkly-eyed face part, and heat sensitive color changing panties (according to the product description, no visual evidence yet). Images below:

[ERO] Game News: 18+ version of Key’s Little Busters announced

This one came out of left field, via Moon Phase diary: a promotional image for Toy’sworks’ recently preorder-open Noumi Kudoryafuka (Kudryavka) figure mentions almost in passing that Little Busters! is scheduled to receive release in a new adult version. At present there is no information beyond this image, but this sounds like weighty news indeed for the Key fans… we’ll keep half an eye on this story should anything else of interest appear.
