  • Another week, another batch of pretty PVC ladies. It was actually a more packed 5 days than usual, with tons of figures going up for order. But surprisingly, no Nendoroids whatsoever! Good Smile, you’re slacking! Instead we had mostly scaled gals, ranging from totally adorable to dark and dangerously sexy. Of course there are some duds as well: in fact, this week we have several hilariously bad releases and one ridiculous mess-up from none other than FREEing. So hit the jump to check ’em all out!

  • The week after Wonder Festival we really don’t see that many releases from companies. In fact, they’re usually so busy moving stuff back and resting up that this week would be a “dead week” with only a few figures going up for order. Well, we’re not exactly bursting at the seams with them, but we do have enough for a roundup! And some very nice ones at that, including (finally) another one of Alter’s Witches, Meat from Good Smile Company, and a really big bunny girl. So hit the jump to check them all out!

  • This month’s magazine scans got off to a very bumpy start, with blurry cellphone pics and other oddities. Now, though, we have all of the scans in glorious high resolution! That’s right, no more peering at them to see company names. Many of the figures were already covered in our previous post, but of course we’ve got some new info as well. First off, there are three (3!) figures of Erica Hartmann: Alter has their version of her painted, the Nendoroid is complete, and there’s also an adorable resin kit. Kaitendoh has also brought a trio of figures, all of which look surprisingly good. There’s a new Kirino, a new Hello Kitty girl, and Mikado, a companion piece to their amazing Retia. There are two new colorways of previous figures: a red version of ques Q’s Bunny Taiga and a pink shimapan Soniko from Gift, who is just as risque as the previous release. We’ve also got scans of prize figures, Nendoroids going up for order this week (Monster Hunter and Nodoka), figmas and Gutto-Kurus, AmiAmi Zero’s Houki STILL without a price, and a few more PVC cuties. Check them all out in the gallery! [via figure/gk]

  • At any Japanese figure event, you’re bound to stumble across some figures that aren’t really fit to show off to company. The Miyazawa Model Exhibition is no exception, and quite a few companies brought out their cast-off ladies! Kaitendoh had their Daydream series out as well as the very bodacious Shiguri Takashima. Orchid Seed had what seems like the millionth version of Chichinoe Pinup Lady and Kuruma Kurono. Clayz brought their awesome Lilith. There’s also the Kanojo x Kanojo x Kanojo figures from Milkpot, Daiki’s terrifying Cattleya, and finally cast-off shots of Embrace Japan’s Diabolus Inclinatus! And of course there’s more, so check them all out in the gallery! [via Hobbystock & Akibahobby]

  • The week after magazine scans go up, the pre-order list is usually full of figures that were shown off in them. October’s scans were no exception, and this week we saw quite a few painted figures that were shown off go up for order! There were also a few surprises, as there always are, like some excellent re-releases and a rather odd alternate color. This week seemed to be ruled by Vocaloids and Strike Witches, with 3 figures from each a piece. There were also two girls from the Shining series, but it seems like we always get a few of them! Surprisingly absent was Touhou Project: I’m used to Griffon putting up at least one figure a week, but this time we got none! We also got figures from ToHeart2, Nyanpire, and a few American titles, so hit the jump to check them all out!
