@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

This was a great week for figures: so great, in fact, I had a hard time deciding what to put in the header! Usually it’s pretty cut-and-dry, but this week I could have made one of just Nendoroids and one of just figmas. Yes, there were three of EACH of those things! Along with some fantastic scaled gals, of course, and surprisingly few duds. So hit the jump and check them out!

After a week’s hiatus, the roundup is back! We’ve got a really packed list of orders this week, with seemingly almost every company coming out of the woodwork to offer up some figures. There were some long-anticipated figures, surprise re-releases, things no one asked for, action figures, and even some boys! So hit the jump to check them all out.

Way back in August, Clayz announced that they were doing PVC renditions of Takeshi Miyagawa’s Kirino & Kuroneko sculpts. Well, with so many months gone by I’m sure many of us assumed the worst: the dreaded cancellation announcement. However, after absolutely no news about them, they’ve just popped up painted! They look great, and while it seems like many people don’t like Miyagawa’s signature design features he’s always been one of my favorite sculptors and I am dying to finally own these two!

After a totally massive batch of loot in January, February was kind of a cool-down period for us as we brace for what I can only imagine will be a wallet-breaking March order. There were also a ton of delays in February, while not a lot of January stuff got pushed back, so all in all it was definitely on the smaller side for us. But of course that doesn’t mean it wasn’t full of awesome goodies! So hit the jump to check out what we got in the shortest month of the year.

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.

Chara-Ani isn’t exactly known for their great quality PVC, but it seems like recently they have been trying to step up the bar, especially in terms of sculpting. It’s clear in their new figures that they are doing a good job of moving forward! Here we have adorable summer version of Kirino and Kuroneko, the first Highschool DxD figure of Rias Gremony, Kodama and Haruko from Maken-Ki!, a lounging Fear Cubrick, and finally a really cute version of Erio from Denpa!
These all look like they are far above what we’ve come to expect from Chara-Ani, especially Erio who looks fantastic.

Apparently one day someone sat around and thought to themselves, “You know what OreImo is missing? TENTACLES!” At least I’d like to imagine that’s how the design for this garage kit (which is called the “trading card art version” but is based on one of the Siscalypse characters) came around, as I can’t think of any logical reason to put Kuroneko in a insanely skimpy witch outfit with a swarm of tentacles coming out of her behind. Then again, the name of the circle doing this is SNUFFKING, so I guess it’s not entirely unexpected!
Jokes aside, the sculpting on this kit is pretty awesome–they nailed Kurnoeko’s expression and body type, and the outfit is certainly unique. I could see this selling quite well just for the novelty value if it was ever made into PVC, but I really doubt that will happen. Like all of the kits that are popping up now, this will be sold at Winter Wonder Festival.

Welcome to the first PVC Pre-Order Roundup of 2012! You’d think that companies would want to start out with a bang, but 2012 started off a little slowly. We had no figures last week, and this week there were not a lot of big-deal figures. In fact, it seems like companies had batches of smaller figures saved up for the slow start!
Though a lot of companies did put out figures this week, and we got a few figures that people have been looking forward to like Kamineko and Alter’s Momo, my favorite offering was from a rather surprising company–Wave! So hit the jump and let’s get started!

Let me start this post of by saying that I have no clue why the figma blog is called the figma blog–clearly Max Factory uses it to preview scaled figures as well, so the title is very misleading. For instance, last night they showed off Kuroneko’s 1/7 scale figure of her in Holy Angel Kamineko garb, which is certainly not related to figmas in any way. Well, there is that figma of her… but still!
We first saw Ruri Gokou, aka Kuroneko, colored in December’s magazine scans. Now we’re getting some official shots, which of course means that she should be going up for order next week–the tenth, to be exact. We also have a retail price of ¥8,800 (which seems a little steep to me) and a release date of May. She is looking adorable in this outfit, and I love the little details on her dress. It’s also partially cast-off, thought that personally seems like a silly and pointless feature. My one issue with this figure is how stiff-looking the outer skirt is–it’s sculpted by YOSHI, who has done a lot of work in the past and is very well-known. However, some of his figures like Ran Yakumo tend to have kind of shapeless skirts, so I guess it’s to be expected.

Kuroneko’s alternate form, Holy Angel Kamineko, is surprisingly popular. We’ve seen a figma of her and a scaled figure from Max Factory, and now Penguin Parade is doing a recolor of their Kuroneko Petanko to put her in the white cat outfit! Sadly for Kuroneko fans, this was an exclusive for Comiket 81 and there are only 100 piece. That’s pretty damn limited! Each one retails for ¥2,500 and I assume these went incredibly fast. It’s a shame, because I really would have liked to own one of these cuties!
