[ERO] Figure News: last chance on Hobby Japan limited Jingai Makyou Didii PVC

Hobby Japan posted a reminder over the weekend that the preorder deadline for their mail order limited Didii PVC from Nitro+’s Jingai Makyou is rapidly approaching. Along with a few new pictures of the kit both clothed and cast off comes the news that all orders must be postmarked by November 12th, setting a hard limit for those of us thinking of procuring the kit at anything close to a reasonable price; She’s still available for preorder from Play Asia for those interested, though preorders are likely to end at some point before the 12th so the PA staff can fill out the necessary forms and run them to the post office. I need to do the same here soon… (no more)

Weekend Event Roundup: Dream Party Osaka, Clayz Matsuri, Queen’s Coliseum II, Sukima Festival

In this post we hit the highlights of several events that went down over the November 3-4 weekend: Dream Party Osaka, the Kansai version of Dream Party Tokyo; Clayz Moe~ro Matsuri, the yearly expo of Clayz figures and work by associated sculptors (blog); Queen’s Coliseum II, the first [ERO] doujin event to take place at the Taitou building in Asakusa following the dropping of the censorship banhammer; and Sukima Festival, a collection of niche themed doujin events that just happened to also include Hatsune Miku and Gurren Lagann.

[ERO] Figure Review: Movic’s Tsukiumi PVC from Sekirei

When it comes to Sekirei I must confess my guilt: like the manga’s hapless protagonist I am unable to choose who among his harem is highest in my affections (though Musubi does have a slight edge on the others); today’s favorite is the token tsundere Tsukiumi, due in no small part to the release of this very nice figure from Movic. I’m not usually a huge fan of the tsundere character type, but I can’t think of anyone I’d rather see cross her arms below her voluminous bosom and gaze at me sternly with just a hint of petulance…

[ERO] Figure News: Kaiyodo’s Bome Collection #26 Akira PVC revealed as castoff

In what marks a first for Kaiyodo’s Bome Collection line of PVC figures, over the weekend their most recent installment (#26 Akira) was put on display at the company’s Hobby Lobby location in Akihabara accompanied by the revelation that her top is castoffable (Moeyo coverage, Akiba OS coverage). We scooped her production at Wonder Festival this past summer, and new information reveals that she is an original character first released by Bome as a garage kit at the same event in 1999, now presesnted as part of his signature PVC lineup and scheduled for release in December. This revelation is sure to increase demand for what was otherwise a figure I think many of us would have overlooked; she’s available for preorder from Play Asia right now if you’d like to support HD with your purchase. This is one we’ll be keeping an eye on as her sales date approaches. (no more)

[ERO] Figure News: Medicos Queen’s Blade trading figure line confirmed, release details updated

A lot of news from over the weekend to process here today, but we’ll start with this: Hobby Channel posted last night with an updated profile of the Medicos Queen’s Blade trading figures we’ve been covering here recently, including the first color shots of Risty that have made their way online. The Hobby Channel post contains both the regular and alternate color of the three main figures in the set, and updates the details of the release in several significant ways: first is the price point, which is revealed at what may be a new record for trading figures at 1,260 yen per unit. The unit count per box has been raised from six to eight, and release is scheduled for “Spring 2008”. Hopefully this means preorders are on the horizon… (no more)
