Yugi Moto 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…

  • Given the new Yu-Gi-Oh movie, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, it’s no surprise that we have been getting quite a few new figures from the franchise. It seems though like most of the characters are neglected: we get a lot of Yami Yugi and Dark Magician Girl, but not much else. Well, thanks to Union Creative, that’s about to change! They are adding Yugi Moto (not Yami Yugi), Seto Kaiba, Dark Magician, and Blue-Eyes Alternative White Dragon (Blue Peeps Whitey Dragon?) to their Vulcanlog line of action figures. A set of Yugi figures with no girls? And a non-humanoid monster?? Truly, it’s a miracle. [via 2chan]

  • 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 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!

  • I love me some Yu-Gi-Oh, and I love that Kotobukiya has been working hard on their Yu-Gi-Oh line, but for me there is NEVER ENOUGH YUGI. Luckily enough, Good Smile Company is picking up the license! They’ve already announced a scaled figure of Dark Magician Girl, and now we are getting two figmas from Max Factory: Yugi and Dark Magician Girl! [via Figure/gk]

  • 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!
