If you feel like you’re having deja vu it’s because these figures have been delayed before. Multiple times. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t even remember when they were supposed to be released. I do know that for both these ladies, it’s over a six month delay period since they’ve been pushed back from April to May. They better come out flawless on release or Good Smile is going to have some very angry customers…

AmiAmi has this nasty habit of combining our orders into big glumps that overlap between months. So, for example, we might not get some of our January stuff until the beginning of March (yet mysteriously it will be with not just February but March items as well). You may have noticed that we skipped a January loot post: well, that’s because we didn’t even get all our figures from it until a few days ago!
But thankfully January and February seemed to be smaller months than most, so we’re just going to combine them into a mega loot post! Check it all out after the jump.

Remember when Good Smile Company pushed all those 2012 releases into early 2013? Well… we have some news on them, but it’s not good. We all know that GSC has been having major quality control issues with their new factories, but it seems like it’s worse than we thought because they have just pushed back these figures AGAIN. And not for a month or two. Oh no, some of these are now in April.
Let’s get on to the figures getting delayed: in February we’ll be getting World Is Mine Miku Hatsune, in March look out for Golden Caliburn, Saber Zero & Kiritsugu and Medaka Kurokami. And then way off in April we’ll be seeing Sena, Tomo Asama and the Princess of Crystal. I know it’s a bummer, but look at it this way: would you rather have shitty versions of these figures tomorrow, or wait a few months for better versions?

Alter’s Princess of the Crystal was love at first sculpt, even before I knew she was done by Yagyuu Toshiyuki, my very favorite sculptor. Her painted scans were even better than I imagined, and I’ve been tensely waiting for actual preview images and a release date. Well, they’re finally here!
The best part (aside from the stunning face, billowing skirt and gorgeous coloring of course) is the inventive means of holding her heavy skirt up–instead of unsightly poles, we get her penguins! They can also be displayed on their own holding an apple. She’ll be a steep ¥11,800, but well worth it in my mind, and orders open on the 5th.

Welcome to another month of scans! We’ve got tons of awesome this time, including FIVE boys! No joke, five of ‘em. Oh, and some ladies as well of course. Lolis, busty demons, kick-ass steak eaters, and graceful penguin commanders. And, of course, the necessary NSFW girls and bikini babes. Check them all out after the jump!

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.

Kotobukiya didn’t have anything new on display at the Miyazawa Model Exhibition this year, but they did bring along a whole ton of figures that are up for order like Fire Sakuya, Kuroyukihime, Vash the Stampede, the Yotsuba & KOS-MOS kits, the controversial Dark Magician, and Cu-Poches Haruka & Madoka. Even some Bishoujos showed up, like Jaina Solo and Jaycee, so check them all out in the gallery!

You’ve probably noticed a ton of delays from Good Smile Company & co recently, but it’s not really news-worthy since a delay of only a month isn’t exactly unusual in the figure world. However, we just got word of a TON of delays, and it seems like GSC has hit some production snags and is looking to fix them. Now, I’d just like to say that my stance on delays is different from most people: I welcome them! I’d rather wait a few extra months than get a figure with sub-par quality.
Anyway, onto the delays! Goddess Madoka was pushed back to December (no surprises there). The Shiki re-release, Sena, and the Princess of Crystal are all January now. The Golden Caliburn re-release was moved all the way back to February, and Max Factory’s Saber and Kiritsugu duo are January. Their Tomo is also January, and Medaka is February. Aside from Medaka, these were all originally 2012 releases! I hope Good Smile is able to successfully fix their issues and return to the quality we all know and love!

Welcome to an action-packed week of orders here on Plastikitty! We’ve got a little bit of everything this time, including tons of boys, a single Nendoroid, some great re-releases, and of course a lot of Wonder Festival items. For me, though, it was the week of Tamaki. After a long time with no good Tamakis we got not one, not two, but… uh, yeah, two of her this week. Finally! So hit the jump to check them all out.

We already showed you Kotobukiya’s awesome Fire Sakuya, Dark Magician, and their new Fate, but of course they had a lot more: enough for two full teaser posts, in fact! Everything they teased showed up: there’s the bikini Ichika, Kirino & Kuroneko looking very cute in summer wear, Vash fully painted, Princess of Crystal, and an amazing Kuroyukihime. They also had a pretty awesome Evangelion set… of the Evas! The surprise reveal was a new Nymph, who is looking quite cute.
Perhaps most interesting is an entire new line called Co-Poche that seems to be along the lines of Nendoroids and Chibi-Arts. A ton were announced including Madoka Kaname, Mami Tomoe, Miki Hoshii, Haruka Amami, Kirino Kousaka, Dark Magician Girl, and Saber. It’ll be interesting to see how this line shapes up!
