Shinobu Oshino Archive

We all know that ques Q likes to take on interesting sculpts, so it was really no surprise when they released Ending versions of Bakemonogatari’s Hitagi and Mayoi, which are getting a recolor for Wonder Festival. But the sculptor, Gekka, has done pretty much the entire cast in this style–including two new ones, Araragi and a second Hitagi, which will be in gk form at the upcoming Winter Wonder Festival!
We have shots of those two in the gallery, along with his Shinobu, Nadeko, Tsubasa and Kanbaru, all of whom have both colored and black & white versions! I think it’s clear that ques Q will make more in the line, but who will they choose next? Personally I really like the Shinobu, she’s just so cute.

Figures rarely go missing but it does happen occasionally. In fact, most of the ones in our first Whatever Happened To…? still haven’t shown up! We did eventually get Luka and the Panty & Stocking gang, but the rest of them? Vanished! Some were cancelled, some just lost in the figure abyss.
But time has passed, and now we have new missing figures! Quite a few, in fact. But of course missing in action doesn’t always mean gone forever, right? Right? ;~; Hit the jump to check out the figures we’re hoping will reappear!

Nisemonogatari seems to be hugely popular, which is no surprise since it’s basically fanfiction for Bakemonogatari by the creator. I’m sure we’ll see at least a few PVC figures from the show at the upcoming Wonder Festival, but of course garage kit makers have beat them to it! We’ve got a bevy of beauties here, from a unique take on the vampire loli Shinobu to some very adorable versions of the Araragi sisters. Check them all out in the gallery, and let us know if you’re hoping to see these ladies in a more buyable form!

At Wonder Festival, Good Smile Company unveiled their grown-up Shinobu aka the “Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade” version. Cause, you know, normal names aren’t good enough for Bakemonogatari! GSC’s version is actually a mass-produced version of a garage kit by circle Astral Body’s sculptor Rooney, who also worked on Alter’s stunning Milla.
The garage kit has been painted, and this is pretty much a taste of what the finished PVC will look like. So basically, it’ll be gorgeous! I love the simple color palette and it seems like she’ll really stand out among their other Bakemono figures who have more subdued colors.

This week had a flurry of toy news. Between coverage of the Mokei Hobby Show and the flood of NYCC news, as well as our preparation for event coverage, I must admit that the new release of the week got a bit lost! I went back over it all last night and realized that there were a surprising number of wonderful figures that I’d totally let slip under my radar. There were the usual duds, like Beat’s bizarre new offering, but for the most part the offerings were pretty excellent!

Bakemonogatari has some really spectacular character designs, and Good Smile Company has taken full advantage of this fact by doing a series that contains all of the main (female) cast. Hitagi, Nadeko, Kanbaru, Hanekawa, Mayoi, and now the loli vampire Shinobu Oshino! Who is blonde of course, because all loli vampires have to be blonde.
One of the best things about this figure is how all of the other characters are hidden in the pile of donuts she is sitting on. If you know even a little bit about Bakemonogatari they’re easy to spot, and the attention to detail is just amazing! Shinobu herself isn’t a simple figure either, as it looks like a ton of work went into her outfit–this is great news, because GSC kind of half-assed Kanbaru and focused all of their attention on the base.
It will be great to have the 1/8 scale line all together finally when Shinobu goes up for order this week! So far we have no pricing info or a release date, but let’s just hope it’s not January! Because they already have five scaled releases, 11 Nendoroids, and three different Petit sets for that month. I’m hoping for a March release, though April would be nice too…
