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 News: Shuraki roundup – high res Needa, Meifeng reissue, Rize release date

Online shop Infinity Wonderland posted their Needa preorder last night, and along with it a gallery of high resolution images of the kit (reproduced below). She’s looking great! Of greater import in the listing however is the news that Shuraki vol. 2 Meifeng is scheduled for an April 2008 reissue, and Shuraki vol. 5 Rize is due out in April as well. This should put fears to rest of those unable to get Meifeng when she was first released earlier this month. Images below:

Figure News: Goodsmile’s Shuraki Needa PVC up for preorder

As of midnight tonight, November 27th, the fourth volume of Goodsmile / Red Entertainment‘s collaborative multimedia figure series Shuraki is now up for preorder! Volume 4 features the Yamashita Shunya-designed Needa as voiced by Chiba Saeko and embodied in a sculpt from Hagii Shunshi of Studio Saru Bunshitsu, and is likely to invoke a similar rush to preorder as her earlier peers Mishiro, Meifeng, and Shall, so haste is advised for those interested in picking her up. Good luck to all combatants as we enter the fray! (no more)

Figure News: Hatsune Miku Nendoroid, Shuraki Needa preorder dates confirmed

Just a quick note before running off to Comic Creation: according to online shop Digitamin preorders for the Hatsune Miku Nendoroid (scooped yesterday) are scheduled to officially open at midnight on November 26th, with preorder opening for Shuraki series #4 Needa on the 27th. The Miku preorder is also hinted at in an official email to stores from Goodsmile, which says there will be a special announcement occurring on Nico Video at 24:00 o’clock on the 25th (midnight of the 26th)… A feeding frenzy is expected to surround both kits, so we’ll be watching for further preorder information as it is forthcoming.

Figure News: Goodsmile presents a first look at Solid Theater’s Saber Alter, Shuraki #4

Toda Satoshi’s (Yume no Kagutsuchino Koukoku) Solid Theater produced, Goodsmile disributed Saber Alter arrived at Goodsmile’s offices today, according to the official Goodsmile blog. It features the fanatical attention to detail at a remarkably small scale that made his Kazeko kit so popular (with me at least), and unless my eyes are broken this time as well I’d say she’ll be a very popular item (who can resist a kit that looks like a cross between Saber and Diablo?). With her in Goodsmile hands we can expect preorders up soon. In other news from Goodsmile, Needa, the Yamashita Shunya designed fourth entry to the Shuraki multimedia figure series, has a color prototype of her kit online as well – complete with 360° rotating video. I’m really digging the zettai ryouiki on this one… :3 (no more)
