Hobby Complex 03 Tokyo

Hobby Complex 03 Tokyo happened yesterday, and like the best laid plans of mice and men my plan to be in attendance went awry (admittedly it wasn’t very well laid to begin with). My judgment beforehand was that not much of import would occur and I could afford to miss it, and from preliminary reports it seems that was largely the case; Akiba Hobby, Moeyo, and GA Graphic all weigh in with much the same material, most of which we’ve seen in various forms before. Only a few new resin kits were on display, and no new PVC news that I can make out; my only regret was that I missed the chance to pick up this stupendous [ERO] Cattleya resin kit, but I’m probably in the minority there. ^^;; We’ll bring any further news from yesterday’s Hobbycon as it becomes available.

Figure News: Persona 3 FES Metis, Ma ga Ochiru Yoru Sherisu coming in PVC from Orchid Seed

Further coverage of yesterday’s Hobby Complex 02 is in today from GA Graphic, which reports on two new PVC kits coming from Orchid Seed: the first is Metis, the FES-exclusive Persona 3 character, with a sculpt from Ishinaga Sakurako (Google cache). The second is Sherisu, the protagonist of eroge and eroanime Ma ga Ochiru Yoru. This is a PVC version of an [ERO] resin kit that came out at Wonder Festival 2007 Summer under the auspices of Kill Time Communication, with a sculpt from Tako Tomoyuki. Price and release information are yet forthcoming, but we’ll be keeping an eye on both as production advances. Castoff Sherisu shots below:

Figure News: Hobby Complex 02 Tokyo reports

The second iteration of garage kit and toy convention Hobby Complex occurred today, this one the first to be held in Tokyo (occupying one of the west halls of the Tokyo Big Sight). Preliminary event reports are up at GA Graphic (Lucky Star feature), Akiba Hobby, and Moeyo! Akibajin Blog. As primarily a garage kit event there wasn’t much in the way of PVC on display, though a few makers did show up (Goodsmile offering an event-limited Gargantuan Neco Arc CHAOS vinyl figure); the reports are worth checking out regardless for a look at what a bunch of the bigger kit circles are up to these days, as well as a fine vessel that both Moeyo and Akiba Hobby seem to feel sums up the event nicely.
