Welcome to the return of the roundup! Sadly we here at Plastikitty got hit by a nasty spring flu so we’ve been out of commission in terms of the roundup for a few weeks, but now we’re back in business! Though technically it’s the roundup for the week of 3/29~4/4 we’re also featuring some of the best figures from the week before as well.
So what do we have in store? Tons of pretty ladies! In fact we’ve got releases from almost all the major manufacturers, including some that I have been really looking forward to. Check them all out after the jump!

Well after the abomination that was last week, companies had a lot to make up for this time around–and they delivered! We have a particularly packed roundup for you this week, with tons of beautiful ladies and four (yes FOUR) Nendoroids! We’ve got magical girls, animal girls, girls with guns, girls in swimsuits, and one lone boy. So hit the jump and let’s get started!

Welcome, Plastikitties, to the most boring roundup in the history of the site! I sure am great at getting you to want to read posts, huh? No but seriously this was the worst week ever. Weeks with no figures are better because man did we get some stinkers this time around. But those are fun to laugh at, at least! And, of course, there’s a single new gem tucked away in the weird slimy darkness of 1/20~1/24: a week that shall live in infamy.

Daiki’s figures are so hit or miss for me. I absolutely adore a lot of what they produce, but the other half is just… bizarre. Oddly enough, Yukihime here falls somewhere in the middle. I think her face is soft and lovely, and the hair is to die for. But the body sculpt is just weird. She has the US comic girl plasticine leg thing going on, along with a ribcage that looks like it’s trying to escape from her body. It’s very stylized and most definitely not my stripe, sadly. This sculpt was originally a garage kit and I think it shows a bit: her body just looks… unrefined.
No scale is listed for Yukihime but she is BIG–14 inches big. Like most Daiki figures her retail is on the high side at ¥13,000, but given how gigantic she is that doesn’t seem so steep. She’ll be released in July, and expect orders to open this week.

Just like last year, we here at Plastikitty are putting together a list of our favorite (PVC) figures of 2012! Also, we’re much more timely this time around because we actually started compiling the list back in November. No joke! We get so many figures in a year that it does take a while to sort through. It also requires a lot of thought, since this is not a ‘Best Of’ list. We don’t base it on sculpt or coloring or characters, but on what figures we’ve really enjoyed the most.
To be totally honest, 2012 just wasn’t quite as good as 2011–and 2013 is looking to be much brighter already. It seems like a lot of things got delayed, and some of our favorite companies fell totally flat. But of course with something like 2 thousand figures released in a year (2,269 according to mfc) there are more than enough bright stars to focus on! So who made the cut? Hit the jump to find out!

[Editor's Note: You may have noticed that the PVC Pre-Order Roundup went missing for a few weeks. Due to medical reasons and the bustle of the holiday season we were unable to put in the large amount of time this feature takes. After all, it's just two of us! But now we're back for the last roundup for 2012.]
This was an absolutely spectacular week for figures. While we were all being generally lazy, opening presents and cooking elaborate dinners Japan was saving up the best pre-orders of 2012 for last. I mean, Mistral and Insane Black Rock Shooter in the same week?! Not to mention the gorgeous Cryska, along with many other pretty ladies. Hit the jump to check them all out!

Welcome to the last batch of Hobby Japan scans for 2012! That’s right, the year really is drawing to a close. Which means thinking of a list of our favorite figures, working on golden butt and boobie awards, and oh yeah.. scans! We already saw the announcement of Irma but of course that’s not all (though honestly there’s not as much new as usual this time around). We’ve got lots and lots of swimsuit girls, and a few gems thrown in. We will be sure to update if any more go up, but for right now this is all there is!
[UPDATE] Updated with figmas, a Nendoroid, FREEing, Aquamarine, Gift, and more!

Welcome to two months of loot in one! Actually it’s kind of three: as you may or may not have noticed, we didn’t have a August loot post either. It’s a long story, but basically AmiAmi has been smushing our orders together oddly so we get things late (but some early–most of our October was here before the September items). So some August items squeaked their way in! Hit the jump to get started on our most action-packed loot post yet.

Welcome to an action-packed week of the PVC Pre-Order Roundup! There are a ton of figures this time around, a few more than usual actually. Surprisingly, most of our major players are absent. We have no new PVC figures from Alter, Good Smile Company, Max Factory, Kotobukiya, or MegaHouse. This means that a ton of smaller companies all happened to release their figures at the same time. We’ve also got quite a few re-releases, and an unusual amount of NSFW ladies. So hit the jump to check out the wacky assortment of figures that went up this week!
