  • A lot of older series have been getting attention recently: Urusei Yatsura, Sailor Moon, Yu Yu Hakusho. But of course for every show that gets a figure, there will be ten more that don’t. One that has been conspicuously absent from any real kind of figure attention, despite its popularity, is Ranma ½. Well… okay, we aren’t getting any official figures, but at least we can drool over this lovely figma version of Female Ranma that some crafty fan has concocted! Though honestly, I’d really rather have a Shampoo. Or, you know, the whole cast. Hint hint, Max Factory. [via Figure/GK]

  • After the rather lackluster job Max Factory did on figma Link, I was not really expecting any more characters from the series. Well, maybe Zelda, but that (probably) involves a full skirt which is not really something they are fond of doing. Which means that if you want other figmas from the Zelda universe, you’re going to have to make them yourself! Of course most of us are not talented enough to do this, but it seems like at least one person is–and they’ve brought us a totally magnificent figma rendition of Midna, complete with light-up eyes (!!). Between that, the amazing base and the fantastic sculpting job this is a piece figma fans could only dream of owning. I mean, come on, even if MF took a crack at her… she’d never look this good. Sigh. [via MuhPlastic]

  • By now I’m sure most people know about Welcome To Night Vale, the deliciously surreal Prairie Home Companion-meets-Stephen-King podcast that’s created a huge fanbase that’s pretty much ravenous for mechandise (since very little exists). And when it comes to figures, well.. they’re pretty much non-existent. On that front we’ve got some good news! And… some bad news. Let’s start with the good! The talented Armelina has created some gorgeous resin Khoshekh’s kittens in truly stunning colorways. That Oil Slick, oh my! The bad news: they’re not actually for sale. Right now you can enter a Tumblr giveaway for some of these cuties, and if you happen to be an artist who has Night Vale related goodies in your repertoire you might be lucky enough to trade for one of these dementedly cute kitties! As for me, I’m just going to sit in the corner and cry a little.

  • One of my favorite booths to check out every New York Comic Con is Argonaut Resins’ booth (this year, #325) because, well, who can’t love Tuttz, I mean, our site’s name is Plastikitty and they’re literal plastic kitties! This year, Eric has a ton in store for us along with a bunch of works by some friends of his. First up are some gorgeous Mummy Tuttz customs from artist Megan Smithyman and some Egyptian God customs from Clinton Yaws. Both really live up to the Egyptian vibe of the figures and transform a modern silhouette into something from millenia ago. Next up are the Cracked Cat Mini Tuttz blind box release, which will be available at Suburban Vinyl’s booth (#208) and will be a run of 12 blind boxed figures (6 black, 4 red, 2 white) with 3 glow in the dark chase figures mixed into the bunch. Also on hand will be some O’Bot customs by Adam Pratt, Selina Briggs, Clinton Yaws, Emily Bee, and Soko Cat, which are teeny tiny and adorable. Last, but not least, some new glow in the dark alien Tuttz will be on hand, but little is known about these invaders yet. That’s not all that will be on hand, just all that is known currently, and I can’t wait to see the rest of it as well as all of these amazing pieces in person on Thursday.

  • In the Western world, Hayao Miyazaki is one of the first things that pops into our heads when Japan is brought up in a conversation. His movies are insanely popular not just on his home turf but all over the world: of course this means the potential for a merchandizing juggernaut, but Miyazaki prefers to keep the licenses close at hand. And, sadly, this means that there are pretty much zero figures from his movies. The statues that have been produced are wildly expensive and not nearly as good as what a company like Alter or Max Factory could make… can you imagine Princess Mononoke figures from Alter?!?! But of course this doesn’t stop customizers! DemiurgusDreams, a talented Etsy store owner, has whipped up a truly spectacular sculpture of Haku from Spirited Away in his dragon form. Just look at that detail! The coloring! I want this so bad I could cry. Of course it sold, but he’s got a whole lot more goodies in his shop… (dat Umbreon) and you can always request a custom piece!

  • So by now I’m sure you all know that Toda Satoshi has sculpted a Saber Bride, and that Gift has officially picked up the sculpt and will be adding it to their growing collection of Sabers. Seriously, the only one they haven’t made into a figure is the brand new Saber from Apocrypha and like Saber Lion (someone please make a PVC Saber Lion). But Toda’s Saber Bride came out as a garage kit first which can only mean one thing… customization! Someone has decided to give her a dark, gloomy recolor that I am so in love with. Just look at all the details! She looks so much cooler this way, in fact I think we should petition Gift to do an official recolor. I don’t care if she never shows up in the game like this and it was just from one fan’s imagination. I need her like burning. [via Figure/GK]

  • As you know, we here at Plastikitty are big fans of Argonaut Resins’ Tuttz figures and today we get to bring some new news regarding these plasticine felines. Artist Adam Pratt, whose customs showed up at Argonaut Resins’ table at Toy Fair, has joined Argonaut Resins’ creative team full time and he’s kicking things off with a few new customs! First up, as seen in the header is the Armored Golem MK1 8″ Tuttz custom which features metallic paint and battle-worn accents. Next up is the second 8″ Tuttz, the Sekhmet Tuttz, who first showed up back at Toy Fair and now has received an awesome resin base. Rounding out the releases are two more mini Tuttz in the Tuttz Beginnings series, which are quite different from the first releases. Considering I own the Beginnings mini Tuttz that already went up, I’m most certainly a fan of all of these! I’ve been in love with the Sekhmet Tuttz since we first saw it and the new resin base addition is just gorgeous. The Armored Golem is also stunning with its rivet work and it’s sure to make someone very happy. If you want to add one of these Tuttz to your collection, they’ll all be up on Tuesday, the 14th, at 10 PM EST on the Argonaut Resins webstore.

  •   Given the popularity of Sword Art Online, we really haven’t seen a ton of figures of the heroine Asuna. Sure, there’s the gorgeous one from Kotobukiya, the exclusive from Volks, the Dollfie Dream, and the more recent sculpt from Chara-Ani, but we’ve heard nothing from the more higher-end companies like Alter, Max Factory or Good Smile Company. What gives! Of course fans have taken the situation into their own hands and put together some customs. Today it’s a wedding version of Asuna! Or rather, a wedding night version of the lovely lady, featuring some beautiful but skimpy lingerie. While the face isn’t exactly accurate, you have to give them props for trying! I’d like to see Max Factory do a version similar to this, since they seem to be going this way with the ToLove Ru girls… [via 2chan]
