Figure News: Orchid’s Nao, CM’s’ Potemayo, Petit Nendoroid Lucky Star up for preorder

Amiami’s noon update brought news of a few new preorders of items we’ve discussed recently here: first up is Orchid Seed’s Mabinogi Nao kit that we first noted was in production earlier today; the Miyazawa version is also available, and if Amiami has her I’m guessing Hobby Search will too. Next is the CM’s soft vinyl Potemayo that we scooped last month; it’s retailing at 1/1 scale (25 cm tall) and 8,925 yen, with release scheduled for February. Finally a reminder from yesterday to mention that Goodsmile’s Nendoroid Petit Lucky Star trading figures are now up for preorder as well, with a box of 12 (5 x 2 standard variations + 1 secret + 1 double, presumably) retailing at 6,000 yen and set for February release. I wish they sold the two Akiras separately… (no more)

Figure News: CM’s’ lifesize Kokonoe Rin figure now in color

Figure maker CM’s updated the official site for their Kodomo no Jikan Kokonoe Rin vinyl figure today with photos of her finished color version, and I must say they’re underwhelming. CM’s incompetence at smaller scales is well documented, but I thought they’d have an easier time with something closer to human size… apparently not. I’d imagine some who preordered before these shots appeared are having second thoughts right about now. (no more)

Figure News: 1/1 scale Potemayo figure coming from CM’s

The official Potemayo anime site updated yesterday with the news that a 1/1 scale Potemayo figure is currently in production. Not satisfied with their 1/1 Kokonoe Rin maker CM’s is on the job for this one as well, though unlike Rin Potemayo will go on sale in February at the rather more reasonable price of 8,925 yen (Potemayo voice actress Hanazawa Kana not included). We’ll be watching for color shots and preorder information as it becomes available. (no more)

Figure News: CM’s’ near-lifesize Kokonoe Rin vinyl figure goes up for preorder

The full purchasing details of the Kojika Rin figure we’ve been tracking for the past few weeks are now online, and it’s not good news for international fans. You can put her in your shopping basket, but to check out you (or a proxy) needs to be in Japan, pay either the lump sum of 70,000 yen (shipping included) up front via bank transfer, or pay 10,000 yen via bank transfer and then the rest when the item ships. We still don’t have a precise release window, but at least there are some higher resolution pics online (albeit of the unpainted prototype). We’ll keep an eye out for a finished version of the kit, and any additional news about possible international availability. (no more)

Figure News: CM’s’ 1:1 scale Kokonoe Rin gets a price, release timeframe

CM’s‘ near life-sized Kojika Kokonoe Rin figure we scooped here two weeks ago has been updated with pricing information and an approximate release window. You can purchase your very own lascivious elementary school student for a mere 65,000 yen (68,250 yen tax included), or roughly USD $580, and she’ll arrive at your door “next spring”. We’ll continue our surveillance of this most suspicious item as more information comes to light, for justice. And by justice I mean Justice. (no more)

Figure News: CM’s announces near life-size Kokonoe Rin vinyl figure from Kodomo no Jikan

Figure maker CM’s today put a page up on their official site detailing the production of a near 1/1 scale Kokonoe Rin soft vinyl figure, pictured here in the company of Rin’s anime voice actress, Kitamura Eri. While no details regarding the price or release date are yet forthcoming, this item is sure to be another gaudy piece of evidence to bandy around in the controversy surrounding the property both in Japan and abroad. We’ll be keeping tabs on this as further information regarding the figure is brought to light. (no more)
