Wave presents Xecty, space Yoko, Aizawa Tomomi

As we reported on Saturday, official pages went online today for Wave’s soft-body Xecty from Shining Wind as well as two other figures we weren’t anticipating: Yoko “space look” version from Gurren Lagann and Aizawa Tomomi (maid type) from Pia Carrot he Youkoso!! 2.

Xecty is scheduled for release in September at 1/8 scale (18 cm long) and 6,825 yen retail, with a sculpt from Clumsy Craft Rei (homepage). Her body is composed of a soft, pliant material, and she comes with an extra exchangeable face part. Her shirt is castoffable. A Miyazawa limited pink version (500 units, 6,825 yen) and a DX version with telephone card (7,875 yen) will also be sold.

Yoko is due out in September as well, at 5,880 yen. She is 1/8 scale (17.5 cm tall) and was sculpted by Katsushima Kouichi (homepage). A Miyazawa limited special color version (6,930 yen) and a resin kit version (10,500 yen, June release) are also being produced.

Tomomi is scheduled for release in October, at a whopping 1/5 scale (height unspecified) and 10,290 yen retail. Her sculpt is from Misumaru Mashii (homepage), unsurprising given his portfolio.

Figure News: Shining Wind’s Elwin, Xecty see fresh PVC incarnations from Kotobukiya, Wave

Shine na Blog brings word today of two new Shining Wind figures in planning. The first is an Elwin / Elwyn (new costume ver.) PVC from Kotobukiya, 1/8 scale with a sculpt from Nakamura Hirotoshi. No news on price or release date is yet available; further information is expected in early spring. The second new figure is from Wave, and features Xecty in a sleeping pose. At 1/8 scale she’s speculated to be part of their DreamTech line, with an original pose based on an illustration from page five of the Shining Wind design works visual collection artbook. The figure’s gimmicks are a) a “soft part” torso extending down to her thighs, b) her one-piece dress is made of “very soft material”, and c) an exchangeable “sleeping face” head part. Some castoffability is implied, though the extent is not known. A color version of this figure is expected to be on display at Wonder Festival 2008 Winter on February 24th; we’ll be keeping an eye out for further information. (no more)
