Aoshima’s Funny Knights Shinobu-chan details

News from the Shizuoka Hobby Show is still trickling in, and Hobby Stock brings the goods tonight on the newest entry in hobby maker Aoshima‘s “Funny Knights” PVC series. Their Masterpiece of Kuuchuu Yousai Ninja no Shinobu-chan Mashiro no Bouken No. 01 Shinobu-chan (we’ll call her “Shinobu-chan”) is scheduled for release in July at 1/7 scale, 18 cm tall, with a retail price of 7,140 yen. The supposed source of the figure (“Ninja no Shinobu-chan Mashiro no Bouken”) doesn’t actually exist, and Shinobu-chan is an original character invented by Kuuchuu Yousai for figure incarnation here. The only information lacking from her description is the sculptor and castoff potential, but given the July release date we’ll be on the lookout for preorders to appear soon with the complete scoop.

47th annual Shizuoka Hobby Show (updated)

The 47th Shizuoka Hobby Show begins today! While primarily oriented toward plamo kits, radio-controlled cars, train models and the like, the show also has a minor contingent of bishoujo figure representation as well (Kotobukiya has already announced a Kizaki Emi PVC from Kurogane no Linebarrels, set to retail at 6,090 yen – can’t tell anything else from that photo, alas). From the exhibitors’ list it seems Kotobukiya, Bandai, and Yujin are the ones to look out for; slim pickings, but we’ll update this post throughout the day with any news we find from the event. Update: a collected summary of Shizuoka Hobby Show coverage can be found below:
