Yami Yugi Archive

Kotobukiya used to fill their event booths up mainly with anime figures, but recently their US booths have focused more and more on US licenses–which obviously seems like a natural change. But at big events like SDCC where they have a ton of space they bust out the anime ladies (and guys!).
This time around they had three of my favorite figures from them this year: Mistral, Asuna (review) and Asuka, along with a lot of the ArtFX J line. Yugi (review), Dark Magician (review), Joey, Vash, Kaiba (review) and Dark Magician Girl were all on display along with a few other assorted ladies. Check them out after the jump!

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!

Figure collecting is rarely a nostalgic experience for me. I have watched a lot of older anime, but it doesn’t often get figures and if it does… well, they’re usually not that great. So my excitement was through the roof when Kotobukiya first announced a figure of Yami Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh. I spent so many hours watching the show and playing the card game (and several of the video games!), not to mention the Abridged Series. Finally being able to own a figure of him was like a dream, but does the spiky-headed Pharaoh live up to expectations? Hit the jump to find out!

Kotobukiya’s awesome Yu-Gi-Oh! line has been going smoothly so far, with figures of one of the monsters and two of the main boys: Yami Yugi and Kaiba! Dark Magician is also planned, but before then we’re getting a second, more action-posed figure of the main character himself… or, you know, the wussy main character’s awesome alter ego. This is dubbed the “Duel of Fate” version, though let’s face it, every duel Yugi is in is dramatic and “fateful.”
I liked the first version, but the pose here fits the show much better! Sadly it’s exclusive to Kotobukiya’s online shop (Japan only at the moment), though his retail hasn’t gone up from the original ¥6,800. He’ll be released in December, and orders are now open at TokyoHunter, MioBoutique, and Big In Japan.

Welcome to a special, double-whammy edition of our PVC Pre-Order Roundup! Last week I was away in the mountains where internet is a mythical thing that people talk about in hushed voices, so we were unable to complete it in time. Instead of doing one mid-week and having a second 2 days later, we decided it would be best to combine them and get more PVC bang for your… viewing page!
Of course, since we have 2 weeks worth of figures, there are a lot of amazing offerings! We’ve got some truly spectacular figures in here, from card-wielding hotties to stripper angels. There’s tons of Nendoroids and figmas, our weekly does of Beach Queens, some awesome game-based toys, a few NSFW Ikkitousen figures, and more. So hit the jump and let’s get started!

Two days ago we got our first look at the colored 1/7 scale Yami Yugi by Kotobukiya. He looked good, but it was hard to see any of the actual details and the face didn’t look exactly like the original design. But now we get to see a nice, detailed look at this nostalgic figure! The quality seems very high, with some nice shading on his hair, a great mix of paint finishes and some awesome accessories! You can see that the cards are blank right now but are mocked up to look like a regular Yu-Gi-Oh card, which makes me think that the finished one will have actual print on them. Maybe Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl?
I really couldn’t have asked for a better rendition of one of my all-time favorite characters. I mean, it’s great that we’re even getting one, but it’s even better that he looks amazing!

Apparently today is “Koto shows off a ton of figures all at once” day and no one told me! This is the third new things we’ve seen from them today, and my favorite one so far–Yami Yugi is painted! He looks, well, exactly how I expected him to look, which is fabulous! It’s spot-on to the Yugi we all know and love. We learned at MegaHobby that we’ll be getting a whole lot more figures in this line, too–personally, I just can’t wait to have Yugi lording over my Dark Magician Girl!

Kotobukiya showed off their 1/7 scale Yami Yugi at MegaHobby, but we already knew about him. The big news is on the little sign next to him, because it announces two new additions to the line–Seto Kaiba and Dark Magician! AW HELL YES. Dark Magician Girl won’t be lonely and Yami Yugi has someone to duel! This is looking to be a really spectacular line, and Koto is giving the fans just what they want!

Before I get to the details of this post, I need to get something out of my system: OHMYGODYESSSSSSSSSSSSS. Ahem… now that that’s out of the way, let’s continue! Back when Kotobukiya showed off their Dark Magician Girl figure, I suggested to one of their representatives that they make a figure of the protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh next (among other figures). Now, I’m not saying this is the result of my advice, but please feel free to direct any thanks my way.
Yami Yugi is completely rocking in this figure, and he just oozes awesomeness. All the details are there too, from his crazy hair to the duel disk, and he is 1/7 to match DMG. He’ll be on display at Mega Hobby Expo on the 23rd, and this might just be the figure I am looking forward most to in 2012!
