    (NSFW) Griffon Enterprises Rises From The Dead

    Did you think that Griffon Enterprises had gone the way of the dinosaurs (and Taki Corp)? So did everyone else. It’s been ages since they actually did anything, and many of their in-production figures (like the damn goldfish action figure I had on order for 2 years!!) were simply cancelled or left in limbo. But apparently they were just hibernating, because they’re back with totally new branding!

    They showed off two new lines, which really just seems like a way of re-branding their image. The first, Bishojo Tairiku, is their art-based 18+ line (kind of like what Native and AlphaMax does), featuring art by Kizuki Aruchu, Koutaro, Watanabe Yoshihiro, and more! The second, Grand Toys, features more traditional licenses like Cutie Honey, Super Sonico, Highschool DxD, and Silent Möbius. They’ve also revived a few Date A Live and Rozen Maiden figures I thought were long gone! I know Griffon has been a spotty company but they’ve made quite a few very nice figures, so I hope this works out well for them.

    Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Griffon Enterprise

    Griffon is usually the only PVC company to show up to Treasure Festa, and they take advantage of it with a wide range of merchandise on display. This time around they’ve changed things up a bit though: their bread and butter franchise, Touhou Project, was mysteriously missing! Well, not missing: the derpy 1/10 figures were on display and Rumia is painted… though the less I say about her the better.

    It seems like they are going back to their roots–scantily clad ladies! Many of the Wonder Festival announcements are sculpted, including Ikaruga (who is also painted) and Katsura Kotohana. Surprisingly, the just-announced Sasami Tsukuyomi is there as well, and not quite as cute as I had hoped. As for new announcements, we have quite a few–they’re doing Katsumi Liqueur and Kiddy Phenil from Silent Mobius and are going back to Ikkitousen with another Ryofu Housen. But most importantly, after their first sub-par Asuna they are taking her on again in her elf costume and this time she is looking a hell of a lot better!
