Griffon’s R-Line announces school swimsuit Hakufu

Griffon’s ero figure sub-brand R-Line put up an official page this morning for a Sonsaku Hakufu (school swimsuit ver.) PVC figure from Ikkitousen. If the pose looks familiar that’s because she’s a variant of the earlier released gym uniform version; unlike her predecessor this new version does not appear significantly castoffable, though the school swimsuit does have a certain appeal all its own. She’s scheduled to retail at 6,500 yen in August, at 1/6 scale (closer to 1/7) and 13 cm tall with a sculpt from Yamamoto Masahiro. Figure images below:

Griffon does PVC plainclothes Ryofu, in red

Amiami’s evening update yesterday included a listing from Griffon’s ero R-Line brand for a new Ryofu Housen (plainclothes battle version) PVC from Ikkitousen. The kit was originally released in October of 2005 as an unpainted, unassembled resin figure (Amiami listing), but is being revived here in a new “red version” just in time for Ryofu’s resurrection in the new Great Guardians season of the Ikkitousen anime. She’s scheduled for release in late August at 1/6 scale (23 cm tall) and 6,825 yen retail, with a sculpt from Ikeda Ryouichi, and comes with a replaceable bare chest “damage version” part.

Griffon’s Uesugi Kenshin preorder open (updated)

Griffon’s epic Uesugi Kenshin kit from Sengoku Rance that got me all hot and bothered when she was first revealed at WHF Ariake 18 is as of Amiami’s evening update today available for preorder! She’s scheduled for release from Griffon’s ecchi R-Line brand in August, at 1/7 scale (31 cm tall), castoffable, in completed PVC form, with a sculpt from Ikeda Ryouichi. Along with the August release date the big news in tonight’s listing is the price: 10,290 yen retail. This is about what I was expecting, and well worth paying for the glorious bounty at hand: Update: color images now online and reproduced below:

Griffon PVC announcements, event news

Figure maker Griffon updated last night with several bits of interesting news, including two new PVC figure listings and announcements of what they’ll have for sale and on display at World Hobby Festival Ariake 18. The newly announced PVCs are finished model renditions of two resin kits we’ve covered here in the past: the Harada Takehito interpretations of Demonbane‘s Al Ajif and Fate/stay night’s Saber. Both are scheduled for release in August at 5,775 yen retail (tax included), non-scale (15 cm tall), with Al Ajif’s sculpt from Yoshino Atsushi and Saber’s sculpt from Katou Taichi. Both figures are currently available for preorder on Griffon’s official site, and should be listed elsewhere soon. Event news and images below:
