Tomoe Archive

  • Does anyone else worry that Orchid Seed is kind of dying? I think about it often. They used to be one of my faves, and I will be forever thankful that they actually put out Samurai Tamaki, but it seems like every event they have less and less. Will I ever get my library girl? No. No I will not. This year there were only 3 real updates: swimsuit Mammon and the Dark Elf are painted, and they have the sculpt for swimsuit Tomoe was on display. That’s basically it. And they had very little art too, though the focus did seem to be on swimsuit Sonico so she’s probably next. [via Dengeki]

  • What is up with magazine scans recently? Last month they were just awfully uploaded, and this time around they are so late the exclusives revealed are already up for order. Also… they’re pretty awful. There’s barely anything here worth checking out. Are you sold on this post yet?! Well, there are some goodies–MegaHouse’s Elf and Amazon from Dragon’s Crown are painted, and they announced a Sorceress! Their Morgiana is painted as well. There’s also a brand new Range Murata figure from Alter! Of course there’s more. A giant Siggy from Queen’s Blade, a less giant (but no less tacky) Tomoe, Penguin Parade’s awkward version of Senhime from Hyakka Ryouran, and New Line’s surprisingly nice Naoe. MegaHouse is now pumping out yet another version of their Miki, this time with… a cowboy hat! Also there are Nendoroids we’ve already seen. Hooray!

  • Whoo, scans. Pardon my lack of enthusiasm, but the week leading up to Wonder Festival always has me dreading scans. It means extra features (garage kit roundup and wishlist) on top of, well, the event coverage and we have three reviews to work on this week! So when I remembered scans were tonight I nearly cried. For real, ask Stephen. So, let’s just dive right in. Wow, such figures! So PVC! Wowwwww! Maybe I’ll just do every post in Shibe…

  • Welcome to another week of figure goodness! After last week’s figure madness I expected a bit of a cooldown this week and indeed there was. While there wasn’t a lot going on this week in terms of numbers, we did get some really spectacular and long-awaited releases like Blanc and Jack Frost. There are also a ton of re-releases, several sexy boys, and a Kanu I actually want! So hit the jump to check them all out.

  • August 31st is Miku Hatsune’s birthday, so you know what went up for order this week? A whole lot of Mikus! We got scaled figures, robots, and Nendoroids in two different sizes, but of course that wasn’t all that was on the menu. We had quite a few odd releases this week, including a giant and oddly-shaped nurse, a shrine maiden who has lost her clothing, the most boring Alter figure ever, and some truly awful recolors. All in all, it was a very weird week for releases. So hit the jump to see the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly!
