December 21st 2007 figure news roundup (updated)

A whole lot of action on the figure front to sum up today, including a continuation of Cerberus Project’s collaboration with Wafuudou Ganguten, a faux trap figure from Toy’sworks that’s almost Bridgetlicious, a bunny Haruhi + guitar prize figure, a review of the Haruhi itasha model first seen back at the Miyazawa Model exhibition, a step-by-step tour through a Nakoruru castoff, a couple of new angles on Alter’s Kanu, and a Keumaya update. Check it out! Update: Keumaya’s new items up at Toranoana, Revoltech Fraeulein Asuka and Play Stationery Rin up for preorder!

Figure News: Tecmo’s Yamashita Shunya-designed Dead or Alive Kasumi prize figure gallery online

A puzzle presents itself today in the form of this pair of Yamashita Shunya designed DOA Kasumi prize figures with a gallery newly up at Tecmo’s online shop. I’d swear up and down that they’re the same figures we first scooped back in May, and I have the original design illustrations to prove it; however those are listed as coming out this month at 2,520 yen for the pair, while the new ones up at Tecmo are listed at 6,090 yen for the pair and due out in February. Not only that, the ones from May are listed at 18 cm tall, while these new ones are 20 cm. I find it hard to believe that they could be different items with the exact same design, but stranger things have happened… we’ll be keeping an eye out for more information as it comes to light. Either way, if you can find the set for the original 2,520 yen at this point it seems like a steal. Gallery reproduced below:

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: Gundam 00’s Felt Grace, Christina Sierra see prize figure release from Banpresto

GA Graphic is reporting this evening that the two remaining main heroines from Gundam 00, Felt Grace and Christina Sierra, will be seeing release in prize figure form from Banpresto in the third week of May, 2008. This announcement follows the news of Wan Ryuumin and Sumeragi Ri Noriega figures that came in September, and completes the lineup from Banpresto; while these are preproduction samples they’re both looking quite nice, and if the finished product at all resembles them I’m guessing they’ll be hard to come by when next spring rolls around. We’ll be keeping an eye out for preorders of both sets of heroines in the coming weeks. (no more)
