Yami Yugi Archive

  • It’s been quite a while since we got new Yu-Gi-Oh related news from Kotobukiya. It was all quiet on the western front, which is unfortunate because it seemed like lots of other companies were taking on the license… but none of their figures looked quite as nice as that original Kotobukiya line. Well, never fear card game fans, because we have 3 new announcements today! The first are for the Cu-Poche line, joining their Dark Magician Girl Cu-Poche. We’ll be getting Yami Yugi, the first ever male Cu-Poche (!!), and Gagaga Girl (who is one of the many DMG variants). Then we’ll be getting a scaled figure of Atem, which is a real surprise! I wonder if they’ll be doing more of the ancient Egyptian cast? [via Maxut]

  • This year at NYCC we got to take an up-close look at figma Yugi, which of course was exciting for me because I’m a huge Yu-Gi-Oh nerd. But since then he’s been painted, so of course we had to go back and check him out anew at Toy Fair. He was looking as fabulous as you’d expect. Jacket flowing in the wind, crazy hair, duel disk ready for battle. But really, who came up with that hair design? And why? Was it an alien who thought, “hm, this is vaguely what human hair looks like, right?” Yu-Gi-Oh: king of strange anime hair. Though the moving hairdos in Cromartie High actually might beat this…

  • After a very long wait, it’s finally time for Max Factory’s Yu-Gi-Oh figures to make their way onto your pre-order list! It really feels like ages, but it hasn’t been that long at all. I just want them so bad that it feels like ages! It seems like both the Dark Magician Girl statue and Yami Yugi figma will be going up at the same time, unsurprisingly–tomorrow, to be exact! I have to say, I’m kind of disappointed in both of them. Dark Magician Girl looks nowhere near as good here as when we saw her in person–in fact, if I hadn’t seen her at NYCC, I wouldn’t want to order this figure at all. And Yugi has, like, no accessories. What the hell! So much potential wasted! But we just get some cards, a duel deck, and 3 very similar faces. Boo. [via the figma blog]

  • Miyazawa Model Exhibition is one of those “in-between” events. Nestled right in the middle of Summer WonFest and Fall MegaHobby, it’s a chance for companies to… not really show off much new. Let’s be honest, they save the big stuff for the big event, so we don’t get a ton of news from Miyazawa. But Good Smile Company & co brought, like, literally everything they’re working on (that we know about). Just a TON of stuff. Most of it was things we knew about, but we do have some updates: their lovely Felia is finally painted (and, well, no as pretty as I expected), Nendoroid Sheeda from Fire Emblem is finished, figma Yugi showed up, and basically we got a ton of other paint updates. The star of the show was definitely Mebae Miku: hopefully her orders open soon! [via Akibahobby]

  • It seems like it’s been ages since Max Factory showed off their Yami Yugi figma, but it’s actually only been a year. So, not that long–unless you’re a Yu-Gi-Oh fanatic, in which case it feels like a lifetime. At this point I was expecting him painted at Winter Wonder Festival, but surprise–he was in scans! That I guess everyone forgot to actually upload until now, thanks internet. The paint, of course, looks great (do we ever look at a painted figma and think “terrible job, Max Factory?”), with the vibrant, eye-burning brightness you’d expect. I mean, just look at the hair. it’s a thing of beauty. What I’m really curious about is the accessories. There are SO many things you could do for him, so I really hope MF doesn’t cop out with just some extra cards and faces. [via uccow]

  • It’s time to d-d-d-d-dddd-duel! I was over the moon when we found out that Max Factory would be doing Yu-Gi-Oh figmas. I mean, it’s Yu-Gi-Oh! I’ve wanted this for pretty much my whole life, and it’s finally happening. Sadly, we haven’t gotten a lot of updates since the original announcement. He was sculpted at Winter WonFest and I think we were all hoping for a painted version this summer–but alas, it was not to be! But in lieu of an update, we got to take an up-close look at the sculpt at New York Comic Con. Even sans his cape, which we haven’t seen much of late! I can’t wait for paint, and I hope we end up with more in the line.

  • It’s no secret that we here at Plastikitty have a pretty passionate love for all things Yu-Gi-Oh. I once hosted a family Yu-Gi-Oh tournament for my family as a birthday gift. For my own birthday. That’s how passionate I am about children’s card games. Yeah, it’s pretty serious. So the recent influx of figures from the card game/manga/show has been a gift from the heavens for me. So many Dark Magician Girl figures! And of course I was maximum hype for the Max Factory version of her. But when we last saw her, the paint looked very lackluster and I was very worried. But at NYCC, it’s like a whole new figure! Her colors are indeed more pastel than neon, but the depth of shading is great and she looks pretty vibrant. Was it really bad lighting at the last event? Did they redo her paint? Who cares, she’s lovely! Oh, and the Yugi figma is here too. No new updates, just a closer look at the unpainted sculpt!

  • Figmas: those tiny poseable things that Max Factory and a few other companies make a ton of every year. So without further adieu, here’s a super long list of em. We already told you about Shizuo and Izaya from Durarara!!, but we’ve also got word that FREEing will be doing Celty as well. Also from FREEing we’ve got Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant from the original Virtua Fighter, Femto, Void, Ubik, Slan, and Conrad from Berserk, Magic Kaito from, well, Magic Kaito, the Vitruvian Man, and what appears to be some sort of cherub, but is way too tiny and also only an outline to be able to tell. Then from Wing we’ve got Masaru Nananakajima from Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san that we already saw in their previews. From Phat! Company we’ve got Sherlock Holmes, Ninja Slayer, and Yamoto Koki who is also from Ninja Slayer. Finally, rounding out weird third parties making figmas we’ve got Tactical System Uniform Girl by Tomytec. Then from Max Factory we’ve got a whole slew of things: Angela Balzac, two versions of the Archetype, Benisuzume from Knights of Sidonia, Erica Hartmann, Mio Sakamoto, and Yoshika from Strike Witches, a Fubuki anime ver. and Prinz Eugen from KanColle, and Miho Nishizuma Uniform ver. from Girls Und Panzer to round out our selection of anthropomorphic military vehicle females. We’ve also got a Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell: Arise, Shirou from Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works, Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yotaro from Arpeggio of Blue Steel, Mika and Rika Jougasaki fromĀ iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, and Rin and Umi from Love Live to round out the anime selection. For video games we’ve got a Gurlukovich Soldier from Metal Gear Solid, Majima Goro from Yakuza, and the picture of the previously announced Samus from Metroid: Other M. Then in the movie world we’ve got the Hulk, Iron Man XLIII, and King Leonidas (I have no clue why). Other announcements that we can’t show as they were do not photograph: Tomoyo’s figma from Cardcaptor Sakura and the new Sakura figFIX. Phew!

  • We’ve already showed off two figma announcements thus far, Yami Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh! (which WILL also get a Dark Magician Girl figma, thanks for the heads up Germaniac!) and the Magic Knight Rayearth announcement. Just like Nendoroids, most of what the Good Smile Company umbrella seems to bring anymore are smaller cheaper figures they can sell a veritable buttload of, so while Good Smile Company has a handle on all things chibi with Nendoroids, Max Factory is taking care of all of our poseable needs with over 30 new figmas. Up in the header we’ve got the newest Racing Miku design for 2015 that looks like all of the other ones, but with some new gradients and more clear plastic on her, the protagonist from Persona 4, who looks badass as all hell, and Rin Tohsaka from Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works. We’ve also got an announcement of Emiya Shirou, also from Unlimited Blade Works (who in the world actually WANTS this?), Angela Balzac from Expelled From Paradise, new versions of Asuna, Kirito, and Leafa from Sword Art Online II, Haruna and Takao from Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova, Conan from Mirai Shounen Conan, Holmes from Meitantei Holmes (who is awesome), an Iron Man mark XXI (because people totally asked for this…), Kiryuu Kazama from Ryuu ga Gotoku, R. Tanaka Ichirou from Kyuukyoku Choujin R, and Iona from Gekijouban Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova DC. Yeah, lots of characters from things people don’t really know yet again. Then in generic moe girl land, I mean, iDOLM@STER and Love Live land, we’ve got enough tiny girls to keep you happy forever. On the iDOLM@STER side of things we’ve got Rin Shibuya, Uzuki Shimamura, and Mio Honda. Then for Love Live we’ve got nine new figmas: Ayase Eri, Hoshizora Rin, Koizumi Hanayo, Kousaka Honoka, Minami Kotori, Nishikino Maki, Sonada Umi, Toujou Nozomi, and Yazawa Niko. Anyone else think their names sound like sushi rolls? Because I sure do between Umi, Maki, and Nozomi. Like your moe girls with a bit of mechanical doohickeys attached to them? No problem! You’re still covered! Anthropomorphic Ship Girls –I mean– Kantai Collection has some new additions with Kitakami and Yukikaze. More a fan of Anthropomorphic Plane Girls? We’ve got Yoshika and Mio Sakamoto from Strike Witches. Just a fan of robots in general? Tsugumori and the Type 18 Guardian from Knights of Sidonia have you covered. Last, but not least, we’ve got more goofiness as The Thinker and Venus de Milo have popped up again in figma form. Will these ever see the light of day? Who knows! But we’ve got enough to tide us over until their eventual release with a little bit of everything. [via Wonderful Hobby Life For You and Dengeki Hobby]

  • Kotobukiya’s been on a roll with their Yu-Gi-Oh! ArtFX J line, but it seems that Max Factory wants to get in on the action now too. First up is a figma of Yami Yugi with his famous bling bling, aka, the Millennium Puzzle, looking as Egyptian meets goth as ever and second is a 1/7th scale figure of Dark Magician Girl. I guess Max Factory saw Kotobukiya’s 6 or so re-release sell outs of Dark Magician Girl and figured they’d cash in themselves, but in all honesty, I think I like the Kotobukiya version better. Either way, both of these are looking great and more Yu-Gi-Oh! figures are always welcome. Now, where’s Bandit Keith? [via AmiAmi’s Facebook and Wonderful Hobby Life For You]
