Figure Releases #10

After a prolonged absence of giving you somewhat outdated figure news, your not-so-friendly フェイダムさん is here to take more ridicule! Ok, jokes aside, here’s the news.

Gran Kaiser by Yamato

Prior to their action figure of God Gravion, Yamato is going to release this action figure of Gran Kaiser from Choujuushin God Gravion.

Gran Kaiser hits the shelves this December for 3,000円. News and image via Yamato’s page on it.

Figure Releases #9

Ironic this is only my 9th issue despite me providing almost-daily info. Anyways, here’s what you want.

First up, this cute 1/8 scale figure of Shirai Kuroko from Toaru Majutsu no Index by Kotobukiya.

She’s cute and loli, two aspects which I like in a figure. Kuroko goes for 6,300円 next year in March. News via Hobby Channel.

Next up, Yamato is releasing this action figure of God Gravion from… well, Choujuushin God Gravion…

It seems very tempting, especially with that awesome-looking chest piece. God Gravion will be released in December this year for 3,000円. Go see more of God Gravion over at Yamato’s page. (Hint: click on PHOTOZoomer)

Oh, by the way, most of the prices I provide you guys with do NOT include the 5% Japan tax. So Japanese readers or readers in Japan might want to keep that in mind before rushing down to your local hobby store or Akiba with the exact amount in your wallets and find out you’re short of a couple of hundred yen because you thought tax was already included.

Figma Yagami Hayate

AT LONG LAST! Good Smile has finally put up a page on her!

The figma of my favorite kansai-ben speaking mage is confirmed to be released in January next year! Hayate-chan goes for 2,800円. More pictures over at Good Smile’s page on her!

Figure Releases #8

It’s been a slow week for 2ch, so my news comes in slow as well. Anyways, here’s what new…

First up is this delicious 1/8 scale figure of Kizaki Emi Swimsuit Version by Kotobukiya.

What I wouldn’t give to be that nuigurumi… Emi-chan goes for sale in March next year for 6,090円. News and picture via Hobby Channel.

Next up are the Imajin Genetic Vol. 2 & 3, which are Kintaros and Deneb respectively, by Megahouse.

These nicely sculpted figures are going for 5,040円 each, and both will be released in January next year. News via GA Graphic.

1/8 Nagato Yuki Seifuku Version by Alter

Alter is coming out with this tempting 1/8 scale figure of Nagato Yuki from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu.

The pose is so seductive, that even a anti-Haruhism person like me is considering getting it. Yuki will be released in March next year for 6,090円. Here’s the best part, it’s a Chara-ani exclusive. Good luck with that, people. More info over at Alter’s page on her.

1/7 Zange-chan by Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya is releasing this awesomely moe and hawt 1/7 scale figure of Zange-chan from Kannagi.

FAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAPFAP… That’s all I have to say. I may consider going for Zange-chan, but if I do, I’d probably end up going for all 3 of them, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I seriously need to watch Kannagi… For those who can’t read the poster, Zange-chan hits the shelves in March next year for 7,140円. Kotobukiya’s page on her here.
