After a week’s hiatus, we’re back with another roundup full of PVC goodness. Even though half of Plastikitty is currently at San Diego Comic Con, we’re not going to forsake tasty PVC news! We’ve got a small but interesting mix of figures this week. There are a handful of NSFW ladies both tame and very not tame, a few surprise re-releases, figure companies making very silly decisions, and an adorable batch of Nendoroids & figmas. Hit the jump to check them all out!
Hyper Nurse Victory Yuno-chan & Yagi Akumako | 1/6 | ¥9,800 | January | NSFW
Leah: More Vispo sculpts from Beat! They sure are popping these out at a rather furious pace, yet I haven’t ordered a single one yet. Yuno’s bunny ears are tempting, though.
Stephen: I really like Vispo’s sculpts, but as Leah said, we just haven’t ordered any yet and I really have no clue why as they’re just so awesome.
Nao Iihara | 1/8 | ¥6,800 | October | NSFW
Leah: Nao is illustrated by the same guy who did Rider and Hustler, two of Orchid Seed’s most popular figures. Sadly I don’t think Nao got the same level of attention as those two. She’s cute, but something is missing.
Stephen: I can’t help but think that her tongue is a cold sore every time I look at her face.
Dalian | 1/8 | ¥12,800 | October
Leah: Too bulky, too expensive, inept sculpt. What were you thinking, FREEing?
Stephen: FREEing won’t be freeing my wallet of any money over this one, which is a shame because her character design is just so adorable.
Good Smile Company
Spider-Man | Nendoroid | ¥3,800 | November
Ricotta Almar | Nendoroid | ¥3,800 | November
Leah: Ricotta is adorable, but Spider-Man I still can’t wrap my head around. I mean… why? So weird.
Stephen: Ricotta is about as cute as cute can be, but every time I look at Spidey and see his waist part, I can’t help but think he’s got a pair of underwear on over his suit due to its awkward design.
Askua, Rei & Kaworu (review) | 1/6 | ¥6,800 | November | Re-release
Leah: These are some of the best Eva figures out there, so it’s great to see them getting a re-release for new fans & collectors!
Stephen: I’m glad that people will get the opportunity to own these again and considering their re-release I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some Eva 3.0 figures starting to get revealed soon as a result!
Tsukihi Araragi | figma | ¥3,500 | November
Koyomi Araragi | figma | ¥2,800 | November
Scarlet Rain | figma | ¥2,800 | December
Leah: Tsukihi has one of the cutest figma outfits I’ve ever seen: she will be fun to head swap! It’s nice to see Araragi getting an open-run re-release as well. Scarlet Rain I like just because she reminds me of Bubblegum Crisis!
Stephen: Three great offerings from Max Factory figma wise this week. Tsukihi has great quality, Araragi was quite hard to find for a while, and Scarlet Rain is really badass. I wonder if Scarlet Rain fights Chocolate Rain…?
Taiga Aisaka | 1/8 | ¥7,000 | December
Leah: Taiga is SO CUTE! The only figure from this week that I really have to have.
Stephen: Figure of the week hands down. Why is ques Q the ONLY company to get Taiga right!?
Muginami | 1/10 | ¥3,800 | December
Yuuko Kanoe | 1/10 | ¥3,800 | January
Leah: Muginami’s orange hair & orange bikini are kind of overkill for me, but I love Yuuko’s face and updo.
Stephen: Muginami is about as generic as possible, while Yuuko isn’t. Yuuko hits all the right notes and is truly unique.
Another roundup has sadly come to an end, but it’s been filled with quite the extra dose of adorableness this week! What all did you pick up and what all are you hoping to see pop up soon now that WonFes is only a few weeks away? Let us know in the comments below!
