Beatless Archive

  • We have already seen Good Smile’s Fate/Stay Night and Vocaloid scaled figures, but of course they had a lot more. And I do mean a LOT. We are going to dive right in because there’s a lot to cover, starting with painted figures. Emilia from Re:Zero, Akari Kawamoto from March Comes In Like A Lion, Mythra from Xenoblade Chronices 2, HOT LIMIT Eriri Spencer, and the terrifying Antarc from Land of the Lustrous are all finished and nearly ready for orders. For new sculpts we have Shuvi from No Game No Life Zero, the winged Kanade Tachibana, Altair from re:CREATORS, Shopping Mode Haruna from KanColle, and the lovely Wedding Louise. Now for the biggest category: announcements! We have two super throwback ones in a new Lacia from BEATLESS (remember the OG?) and Black Rock Shooter Inexhaustible Version. We’ll be getting a new Cardcaptor Sakura, a Shopping Mode Kashima, a swimsuit Michiru Hyodo, Hifumi Takimoto, Siluca from Record of Grancrest War, and…. Kizuna Ai, because we need more bizarre pop culture figures. [via whl4u]

  • A long long time ago, Redjuice sneakily announced a figure of the Beatless Kouka to go along with Lacia. Good news, since Lacia was stunning! Then we got word that Toda Satoshi, who has worked with Good Smile’s umbrella companies numerous times, was sculpting Kouka. Seems like it would definitely be the GSC figure, right? Well we still don’t have official confirmation, but we DO have painted shots of Kouka! She is so gorgeous, and kind of reminds me of an evil robot Kyoko from Madoka Magica. I do miss the reds of the original illustration, but there’s no denying that this is a stunning garage kit. [via Principality’s Site]

  • Way back in January, we got word that that a second Beatless figure would be joining Lacia. It’s been quite some time since then, with absolutely no news about her, but I had faith! Mostly because I just really, really wanted to see that design as a figure. Well, out of the blue, we have some images of the sculpt! It’s obviously far from finished, but we know that the amazing Toda Satoshi will be the one sculpting this piece. The work so far on it looks amazing, and I absolutely can’t wait to see her painted and next to the gorgeous Lacia. [UPDATE] This sculpt by Satoshi will be sold at WonFest Winter 2013: while GSC hasn’t officially even announced this figure (the original announcement was by Redjuice), I think at the moment we can assume that this will probably be the sculpt picked up by GSC since they have worked with Toda Satoshi many times before.

  • Yesterday, one of our awesome readers pointed out that we haven’t done a loot post in a while. And I realized this was true, as our last was for our August haul. August! This is due to a number of different factors: we moved a few months ago and our last few batches of figures were delivered to several different locations, and then Stephen’s hard drive died and several loot pictures are still trapped in limbo. However, we do have almost all of our December loot here (January hasn’t even shown up yet!), so we gathered it up to show you guys! So hit the jump and let’s see what goodies we managed to get in the last month of 2011.

  • Redjuice is one of my favorite illustrators and Sakurano is one of my favorite sculptors, and when they come together magic happens. There’s a reason I put Good Smile Company’s Lacia on our Favorite Figures of 2011 list after having her for only a day! Lacia was part of the Beatless introduction set and came with one other item: an artbook featuring concept art for the Beatless light novel. When flipping through the artbook, I was practically drooling over the idea of more figures from the series, but it seemed like Good Smile Company had no plans of making more of the weapon girls. However, as a commenter over at MFC pointed out, Redjuice slyly announced a figure of the red-headed weapon Kouka on his Deviantart. Kouka has a fantastic design, and the pose they picked is so interesting and unique. I think if they can pull off her odd skin texture she will be even better than Lacia! There’s still no “official” announcement but I think chances are high that this will either be announced or even shown off at Winter Wonder Festival.

  • Best Of lists tend to bug me a little bit. Take, for instance, Akibahobby’s Best Of 2011 list. It’s not based on the best sculpting, the best coloration, the best quality control, the best posing… the best anything, really. I think it’s basically a popularity contest, and I’d argue that in terms of objective “best figures” for 2011 Chie is the only one that really belongs there (sorry, LAT Miku, but you look freaking bizarre from the side). No one is ever happy about a Best Of list because, in one roundabout way or another, it’s saying “these were the best, your choices aren’t good enough for us.” So here at Plastikitty, we’re not doing a Best Of list, we’re doing a list of our favorite (PVC) figures! It’s long and eclectic, with choices I am sure many other people wouldn’t make. Some of these, yes, are some of the best-sculpted, best-posed, etc, but we’re not going to make any claims that these are the very best of 2011. They’re our favorites, though, and considering how many PVC figures we got this year I think that counts for something!
