Yamato’s Bonnie, Nasubi-sama preorders open

Amiami posted preorder listings over the noon hour today for two new offerings from Yamato that we’ve had our eye on for the past couple of months: Doubutsu Nee-chan Inu Bonnie, a Yamazaki Kouichi (Tandem Twin) original, and Nasubi-sama, based on the “eggplant girl” illustration from the Okama-illustrated Food Girls artbook and sculpted by Shunji Hagii of Studio Saru Bunshitsu. Bonnie is set to retail in July at 8,190 yen, 18 cm tall (scale unspecified) with optional face part, chest part, glasses, eye mask, and base included, while Nasubi-sama is also coming in July at 8,180 yen, 1/6 scale (26 cm tall), with castoffable skirt and chest covering.

Bonnie scooped by Tandem Twin

We got our first look at the painted resin version of Yamato’s Tandem Twin Doubutsu Nee-chan Inu Bonnie back at Wonder Festival, and today sculptor Yamazaki Kouichi updated his site with a much more thorough preview of the figure. While still presented as the resin prototype we’re now able to see the various goodies that will come with the PVC version, including a replaceable chest part, optional glasses, blindfold, and alternate face part. Looks like another great offering in Yamato’s animal girl series, and we’ll be watching for a preorder announcement soon, along with announcement of the promised alternate color “Brenda” version.

Figure News: Griffon’s gothic lolita Haruhi, Yamato’s Doubutsu Nee-chan Inu Anne-Rose unveiled

Two pieces of news on the PVC front this evening: first is word from Griffon that their gothic lolita Haruhi kit from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu is scheduled for release in PVC. She’s 1/7 scale with a retail price of 7,500 yen, and currently without a release date specified; currently only Griffon has her available for preorder on their site but presumably other retailers will carry her as well. Sculpt from Yamamoto Masahiro. Next, word is in from Yamato that the alternate color version of Aruma we’ve seen lurking around for a month or so is dubbed Anne-Rose, and will see release in April of next year at 7.140 yen and 30 cm tall (1/6 scale?). Sculpt is from Tandem Twin, and preorders are expected shortly. (no more)

[ERO] Figure News: Amiami provides uncensored shots of Yamato’s Tandem Twin Doubutsu Nee-chan Inu Aruma PVC

We scooped her castoffability yesterday, and Amiami was kind enough to update this evening with some new gallery images that don’t shirk away from showing us what hides beneath her armored breastplate. I just hope they can deliver something approaching this quality in the production version of the kit… Amiami’s gallery images reproduced below:

[ERO] Figure News: Yamato’s Tandem Twin-sculpted Doubutsu Nee-chan Inu Aruma PVC castoff exposed

Akiba Hobby reports this evening that a figure we’ve been keeping an eye on for awhile now, Yamato’s Tandem Twin sculpted Doubutsu Nee-chan Inu Aruma, is in fact castoffable. This is a sensible move on Yamato’s part given the slow sales of some of the other items in their Doubutsu Nee-chan series, and given the recent announcement of exchangeable chest part Momo wasn’t an entirely unexpected development. She’s currently available for preorder, and I expect this revelation will bump her up on the priority list for many (myself included). In other Tandem Twin news, he’s currently working on a catgirl resin kit that should be released by year’s end (my money is on WHF Ariake 17 in December). (no more)

[ERO] Figure News: Doubutsu Nee-chan Momo coming from Yamato, exchangeable chest part included

Word is in from Yamato today that they’ll be releasing a third color version of their Tandem Twin sculpted “leopard” series, Doubutsu Nee-chan Momo. Unlike the two previous versions of the kit, Yamato is including the exchangeable chest part that was an optional mail-order purchase for the other two; this has resulted in a correspondingly higher price, though, and I’m finding it doubtful that this move will do much to change the status of what was already a shelf-warmer of a kit. She’s scheduled for release in January of ’08, at 1/6 scale and 9,240 yen retail. (no more)
