    PVC Pre-Order Roundup: 9/25~9/29

    Welcome to another week of “things that take all of your money!” This week was pretty decent as far as the number of figures goes, though there are some real… doozies in there, like the Daiki Cattleya and some of Q-six’s baffling offerings.

Example: Griffon’s long-awaited Reiuji figure, which was teased 6 months ago. That may not seem like a long time, but between then and now several brand-new girls were teased, sculpted, and put up for order. Heck, I think some of them are set for release this month!

The sculpt is amazing, just look at the detail on her wings! And she space effect on her cape is incredibly well executed. Of course, Griffon is not known for delivering products that look just like the promotional shots, but they have greatly improved recently so I am highly anticipating this release and will definitely be putting in an order the second she goes up!</p> <p>[via <a href="http://www.griffon.co.jp/toho/diarypro/diary.cgi?no=106" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-article','http://www.griffon.co.jp']);" target="_blank">Griffon's Touhou Blog</a>]</p>

    Griffon’s 1/8 Reiuji Utsuho Is Preparing For A Meltdown

    Sometimes, good things require patience. Example: Griffon’s long-awaited Reiuji figure, which was teased 6 months ago. That may not seem like a long time, but between then and now several brand-new girls were teased, sculpted, and put up for order. Heck, I think some of them are set for release this month! So fans have been waiting patiently for one of Touhou’s most epic characters, the winged girl whose powers come from nuclear energy!

    I think this might be the best of Griffon’s current Touhou lineup. The sculpt is amazing, just look at the detail on her wings! And she space effect on her cape is incredibly well executed. Of course, Griffon is not known for delivering products that look just like the promotional shots, but they have greatly improved recently so I am highly anticipating this release and will definitely be putting in an order the second she goes up!
