President Japan’s “doll eye” Kureha details

Release details and color images went online at Sega’s official Shining World site this evening for the coming release of President Japan’s “doll eye” Kureha PVC figure from Shining Wind that we originally scooped back on April 5th. Like Houmei and Seena preceding her she’s scheduled to ship in September with the high gloss doll-style eyes that are the signature of the series, at 1/8 scale (measurements unspecified) and 8,190 yen retail. The sculptor is currently uncredited. Figure images below:

Eye Ball announces Ouse Kohime figure series

Being unfamiliar with her work this is a rather dense scoop to parse, but bear with me as I try to sort things out: goods maker President Japan announced on their Eye Ball production blog yesterday that they’ll be producing a series of figures based on the original illustrations of mangaka and artist Ouse Kohime (official site). A post on her blog provides further details and additional pictures of the first figure in the series, “BLACK BAT”, who is from the Time Keeper series (apparently a series of original illustrations; I can’t source these for the life of me). Future figures in the series will include an “angel” and a “fallen angel”. The initial batgirl figure is scheduled for release in July as a prepainted and assembled polyresin statue. Price and other details are not yet announced, but this is bound to be an expensive item… we’ll keep a lookout for more details. If anyone has copies of Ouse’s artbooks on hand and could possibly find the original image of this it would be much appreciated! (no more)

President Japan “Shining” series trio preorders open

Three of the Shining series figures from President Japan (Eye Ball/Eye Scream) we’ve had our eye on for the past few months went up for preorder simultaneously today, with listings appearing at Kotobukiya’s online shop. First up is Seena Kanon from Shining Wind [PA], who’s set for release in July at 1/8 scale (28 cm tall) and 8,190 yen retail. Next is Houmei, also from Shining Wind, set for release at 1/8 scale (14.5 cm tall) and 8,190 yen retail; her listing is not accompanied by a release date, but July seems like a logical guess. Finally we have Maple from Shining Tears [PA], presented at a stunning 1/1 scale, 38.2 cm tall and due out in July at 18,900 yen. Sculptor information for all three figures is currently unavailable. We’ll update this post with additional details and images as they come online; current images below. Update: full image galleries now online:

Shining Wind Houmei color sample

The official Shining franchise figure blog Shine na Blog posted photos yesterday of a finished color prototype of President Japan (Eye Scream)’s upcoming Houmei figure from Shining Wind. These are the first pictures we’ve seen of the figure in color, and she’s looking really quite nice indeed!
