    Bandai Surprises With A Cardcaptor Sakura S.H.Figuarts

    We just got a preview of the figma Sakura sculpt, but it seems there will be a poseable version of her on the market before Max Factory is done with theirs! In a totally out-of-the-blue announcement, Bandai is showing off a fully finished S.H.Figuarts of Sakura. In the same outfit. With basically the same accessories.

    Personally, I prefer the poseability of figmas but I guess it’s nice to have options. You know what would be nicer? If she was in a different outfit, so I could buy both without guilt. I also bet that Bandai will also be giving us some Figuarts Zero of Sakura, hopefully not all exclusives like the Sailor Moon girls…

    Volks Brings Us Another Bodacious Selvaria

    When it comes to Valkyria Chronicles’ Selvaria, there’s a noticeable trend: increased bust size. It wasn’t noticeable on her original figures from Alter or Enterbrain, but more recently (especially with swimsuit ones) Raita has really gone all out with the boobage. See Alter and Volks‘ bikini Selvarias, and the more recent Vertex sculpt.

    I thought there might be a lull in her figures for a while, but Volks is bringing back a project announced a year and a half ago: a 1/4 scale CharaGumin Selvaria! Yup, 1/4 scale.

    Kotobukiya’s New Seraphim Sakuya Is A Sight For Sore Eyes

    Kotobukiya has already given us one lovely Seraphim version of Sakuya from Shining Ark, so people were understandably skeptical when they announced a second one at Wonder Festival. I mean, Sakuya has some modes they have yet to cover–why do another Seraphim version?

    BECAUSE SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL, that is why! Unlike the first this is a giant 1/6 scale, and she’s… well, stripped down.
