Orca fills our prescription for more Tamaki figures

By my (very) rough estimate, Tamaki has overtaken Kan'u Unchou on the all-time oversaturated figures list, but still falls well short of Saber and Hatsune Miku. Orca Toys understands that there clearly aren't enough Tamaki fi...

[NSFW] Play doctor with this Sasara pre-order

Lechery is on a roll lately, even if they seem to be crossing the line into a bit samey figures. Hot on the heels of tonight's Charm Maid comes another licensed addition to their offerings in the form of To Heart's Sasara Kus...

Treat yourself to something sweet and grab a new Tamaki

It's been awhile since we've seen something from Beat, but they're back this April with my favorite redhead, none other than luscious Tamaki! They've dubbed this version "sweetheart", but it appears to be little more than an ...

[NSFW] These new Tamaki pre-orders provide quite the show

Ah, dear Tamaki! With a sudden appearance reminiscent of "I'm not dead yet!" comes Milk Pot with two new polystone Tamakis ready for order. While I'm much more partial to the black version mixing with her red hair well, colle...

This Manaka pre-order is quite the curious kitty

While To Heart 2's Manaka Komaki might be a rather quiet and shy class rep, Orca's got other things in mind with their Black Cat Dungeon Travelers version! She appears to be taking a page out of Fault!!'s book, situating hers...

To Heart's Sasara is feelin' feline and up for grabs

What's the next best thing to an actual kemonomimi? Dressing up as one! With perfect timing for Halloween--sort of--and taking advantage of a surprising To Heart Tamaki drought, Orca reminds you of other cast members' existen...

To Heart's Manaka shows bunnies come in pairs

With Orca's delectable Tamaki just about to hit shelves, it's time for Orca to step up with a proper companion! Hailing from To Heart as well, the slightly less well known but apparently no less curvacious Manaka Komaki will ...

[NSFW] Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Orca Toys

Orca Toys appears to be a new name in the business, but their stuff at Treasure Festa establishes them as leaning toward the pervy side. Not all of the figures are explicit but some can cast off while others just have lewd po...

Lechery's Tamaki lightens up a little

Black and red not your thing? If for some reason Lechery's lovely Tamaki didn't resonate with you, they're back again with another version that might be a bit more to your liking. They're no secret to color swapped figures, a...

Peep a new preview of Lechery's upcoming Tamaki photo
Peep a new preview of Lechery's upcoming Tamaki
by Emily Smalara

Any regular reader should know by now that it doesn't take much to get me excited over a new Tamaki figure. Even so, I'm inordinately excited for this upcoming cutie from Lechery that we first glimpsed at WonFest last month. I've also expressed my love of Lechery's works and certainly think they're one of the hottest smaller producers out there, so to know they're putting their craft to good use with a Tamaki figure is some news I certainly never expected!

She looks absolutely gorgeous too, with some lovely rich, dark coloring that always suits her. Even the desk is a nice darker wood, complementing the overall feel of the figure. It also seems planned that an optional battery will allow the lamp to turn on, which seems to be a recurring theme with Lechery lately--odd, but a nice touch!

Of course while the whole scene ties together nicely, Tamaki is the stand-out star. Lechery's added a touch of their own trademark original style while still retaining her unmistakable look, and, of course, I love them for the fact they kept her oft-exaggerated curves realistically under control. Certainly one of my favorite Tamaki figures in a long while, you can bet we'll be keeping an eye out for ordering news as soon as it's available!
