Well I got my hands on this 1/6 original cast figure of Kan’u Unchou from E2046. The people at E2046 have clearly been putting a lot of effort into their ORI product line, and I was right in saying that this has to be their best attempt so far. Not that there aren’t nits to [...]
I’ve blogged about E2046′s prepainted resin figures before, such as their cast of the BUBBA Bunny Haruhi and Yuki Nagato. As part of their ORI series of products, E2046 has created an original Kan’u Unchou (from Ikkitousen) resin figurine that looks like the most thorough work in their pre-assembled product line thus far.
Nendroid is a PVC figurine series from Good Smile Company that turns popular anime characters into awesome chibified caricatures with oversized heads. VOCALOID2′s Hatsune Miku recently received the Nendroid treatment and topped the Amazon preorders chart with over 10,000 preorders in just two days. Mika-tan, an employee of GSC, posted some new “product testing” pictures [...]
The postman brought me a present today. Yay! The kind folks at E2046 decided to send me their latest creation, 1/6 Dark Magician, for me to review. Apparently they really liked my review of their pre-painted recast of BUBBA’s Haruhi bunny. It’s not the kind of moé stuff that I usually review, but it’s still [...]
E2046 has added a few awesome entries to their Gathering series of pre-painted resin recasts. (In case I haven’t repeated it enough times, their Haruhi recast rocks!) It seems that the Gathering series must be selling really well because they just keep coming. Some of the new items up for preorder include: BUBBA’s Yuki Nagato. [...]
Wonder Festival 2007 Winter may have ended, but the coverages are in full swing. Akiba-blog has comprehensive coverages on all the Haruhi and Yuki figurines that were present at the event. One particularly awesome resin figure caught my attention… Legs… @_@ Not since BUBBA’s Haruhi Bunny have I wanted a resin figure so badly. It’s [...]
A new sculpt from BUBBA, the creator of Haruhi Bunny! It’s Yuki looking lolilicious with her guitar! And that cat! Thanks to Bababaloo for the heads up. No further info is forthcoming but you can view a video with more shots of it here. Anyway, HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! May you have lots of fishes.
CDJapan is having a figurine sale with some items (read: the crap) discounted up to 70%. The sale is until 28 Feb. Most of the items are shit not very popular, but there are a few that might be on your wish list, such as: HIMM — Mitsuki Sawatari Gundam SEED — Cagalli Yula Athha [...]
Wow, I really took a lot longer than expected to make this post. ORZ. Between Rainbow Six: Las Vegas, weekend otaku gatherings and school, my life has been really occupied recently. And I haven’t even started on my school work. I am living life to the fullest! Yay! (Although I really want to go back [...]
The next in line after Haruhi, Mikuru gets the Max Factory treatment. Preorders are open for this PVC figure of the loli-moé SOS-dan member. Sadly, judging by the preorder status, it doesn’t seem to be doing so good. I guess Haruhi is a tough act to follow. I can’t exactly place my finger on any [...]
Not too long ago, Bandai started taking preorders for an Asuka figurine under a new “Metamorphigure” (メタモフィギュア) line of products. It has a dress that changes colour between black and white depending on the room temperature. You can view an official video of the colour-changing process to see for yourself. Asuka will be released next [...]
