Yagyu Jubei Archive

Do you like yukatas? Do you like pretty girls in yukaas? How about… sets of pretty girls in yukatas? THEN MAN OH MAN IS FREEing THE COMPANY FOR YOU. Thought the just announced set of Soniko pals was enough? Wrong. What about the Madoka set? I mean, she is here and painted, along with the Homura sculpt? WRONG. What about the Fate/Stay Night ones, I mean we haven’t seen Saber Alter yet! Oops well they forgot about her. But we DO have: Tamaki Kousaka; Inori; Nagi from Kannagi; Fate, Nanoha & Hayate (announced); Sasami Tsukuyomi and Mashiro Shiina. All. In. Yukatas.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE. Yagyu Jubei (colored!), Rin, Len & Kaito (BOYS?!) in Senbonzakura gear (announced, no sculpts), Percival from Eiyuu*Senki (announced), Kaworu Nagisa (sculpted, uhnf), Rei Ayanami (announced), bunnygirl Rias Gremony (sculpted & huge), the ribbon gals from Kono Naka ni Hitori (painted), Akiho Senomiya (sculpted) and Akiko Himenokouji (sculpted) along with all the Sword Art Online figures. Holy crap FREEing, slow it down a little! Also, that Tama-nee. Be still, my heart.
[UPDATE] Saber Alter is indeed sculpted, but wsas marked DNF so we can’t show her off.

Another month, another round of magazine scans! Like clockwork, it’s that time again. This time we’ve got a whole lot of Tony Taka for you guys, which makes me a very happy camper. Heck, every figure release in the world could be Tony Taka and I’d be pleased.
Of course we’ve got other things: Devil Survivor, Fate/Stay Night, Miku, the inevitable Cattleya, figmas, Nendoroids… and not a boy in sight! So check them all out below.

Welcome to an action-packed week of the PVC Pre-Order Roundup! There are a ton of figures this time around, a few more than usual actually. Surprisingly, most of our major players are absent. We have no new PVC figures from Alter, Good Smile Company, Max Factory, Kotobukiya, or MegaHouse. This means that a ton of smaller companies all happened to release their figures at the same time. We’ve also got quite a few re-releases, and an unusual amount of NSFW ladies. So hit the jump to check out the wacky assortment of figures that went up this week!

While I have no love for the Hyakka Ryouran anime, I am head-over-heels in love with the character design, especially when it comes to the main character Yagyu Jubei. I own 9 figures of her right now, but the number will soon rise to ten: there’s no way I am passing up this ridiculously awesome new version of her from Alter! In fact, I might even like this more than their original Yagyu figure (which is being re-released!).
We saw this version colored only a few days ago in magazine scans, and already she’s up for order. She is a Hobby Japan exclusive, but given her size and detail the price is pretty sweet: only ¥9,800! If this was GSC I’m sure she’d be in the 14k range. There’s also a limited edition for ¥1,000 more that comes with a mat featuring Yagyu & Senhime. Sen’s new design is also pretty cool, I wonder if they’ll be doing a new figure of her as well? Yagyu comes out in April, and proxy orders should open tonight!

Time once again for the wonderful gift of magazine scans! You know, a sneak peak of the figures that will be eating up all our money in 5 months or so. Living on ramen is worth it for such pretty plastic ladies! Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves. Anyway, we’ve got a good batch this month. Some long-awaited Alter sculpts are finally sculpted, we’ve got both Hyakka Ryouran and Queen’s Blade, a Nendoroid fans have been begging for, lots of exclusives, and a few surprises along the way. So come along and check them all out!
[UPDATE] Updated with FREEing and AlphaMax, along with MegaHouse’s Chie and Lancer!

There are a lot of figures of Hyakka Ryouran‘s Yagyu Jubei out there. They range from spectacular to just bad, and I think Q-six’s take on the busty redhead falls into a whole different category. It’s just… bizarre. On one hand, I find all the stuff flying around and the unique sculpting style intriguing. But the body positioning is kind of hilarious, since she has a serious case of snake-spine and her legs are crossed… while she’s running around attacking people? It’s cool, but broken back syndrome is one of my major figure pet peeves. My love of Yagyu is strong, and I do think they did a very nice job on her face and she has a great butt, but that back! It’s so weird!
There are actually two versions of this 1/6 scale figure. The one in the header image is the ‘Arousal’ version (which will be limited). This Yagyu has golden eyes, a more serious expression, and a lighter base along with some small gold detailing. The regular version has blue eyes, a happy-ish expression, and a darker stone base. This is definitely a unique and interesting take on the character, and if she winds up in the bargain bin I might be tempted. But Q-six does expensive polystone (¥16,800 expensive) so even if her spine was straight I doubt I could afford her. Also, she comes out in January! Ah, I’ll just have to “settle” for the new Alter one.

Another month, another batch of magazine scans! They’re definitely gearing up for October, since these scans are full of some lovely treats: new Hyakka figures from Alter, the revival of the Shining Hearts swimsuit line, the goofiest Nendoroid, a totally gorgeous AlphaMax girl. But of course there are many tricks to be found: mainly, ridiculous pricing. I mean, beyond Goddess Madoka ridiculous… companies, what is going on?! But good news outweighs the bad, so hit the jump and let’s get started!

Delays are a natural part of collecting, but for many people they certainly aren’t a highlight of the hobby. Sometimes you want a figure really bad and wait 6 months for the release, only to find out it’s been pushed back! For others delays are a blessing in disguise, especially if you find yourself running out of money for a particularly expensive month. But no matter what your opinions on delays are and how much (or how little) you collect, it’s something that ends up effecting all of us! So hit the jump to check out what goodies you will be getting this month and which ones you’ll have to wait a little bit more for.

While you’d expect the weeks after Wonder Festival to be packed with figures that popped up at the event, it seems like once again the companies are keeping their new goodies for a later date. Instead, though, we got some wonderful figures from the recent magazine scans!
We’ve got several beach girls set for a nice summery release, a gorgeous demon, a strange Nendoroid, plenty of NSFW figures, and a butt-kicking demon summoner! Hit the jump to check them all out.

After a few rather slow weeks for pre-orders, it seems like things are finally starting to pick up! While you’d think we’d be seeing a lot of Wonder Festival goodies this week, that actually wasn’t the case–instead, we got some brand-new unveils which is rather unusual, and a few re-releases as well. Of course we did get a few things that showed up for Wonder Festival, like an adorable version of Marisa and a really awesome figure from Yamato. There are also giant bunny girls, a rare male figure, ridiculous Nendos, and quite a few NSFW offerings, so let’s get started!
