Just your average amateur figure collector, gamer, and anime connoisseur. My figure collection grows slowly due to being a poor college student, but it's growing nonetheless. I also cosplay as an additional hobby. I'm a huge fan of Evangelion, Touhou Project, Godzilla films, and DC comics.
Oh yeah, I also play BlazBlue. I main Iron Tager and Platinum.
Despite keeping up with Japanese matches in Persona 4 Arena and watching Shark Week (yes, both at the same time), I've made sure to still keep track of recent happenings in the figure world. Now I'm here to report that two more Touhou figures are currently up for re-release.
Nendoroid Youmu Konpaku
Originally released in April of last year, Youmu finally gets a re-release! I for one am less than enthralled though. She looks very nice of course and the translucent plastic on Myon (her ghost half) looks good, but her optional faces are nearly the exact same as the ones that came with the Sakuya nendo. Still, if you're a fan of Youmu and missed her release, this is your chance. I for one am hoping Yuyuko gets a re-release soon to go with her.
Phat Company's Yukari Yakumo
Now a re-release that gets my attention more is of this scale figure of boundary youkai Yukari. Originally a garage kit before Phat Company got a hold of it, this popular figure gets another release. I'm a fan of the boundary sort of base (since it's not the true base but it's what Yukari herself rests on), and it's always great to see a scale Touhou figure that isn't Griffon for a change.
Youmu is available on Goodsmile online shop for 3,000 yen (fair price for a nendoroid) and flat rate 2,000 yen shipping. As always, shipping remains the same for group orders. Pre-orders end on August 22, and Youmu will be released in December, just in time for the holidays. Yukari can be ordered on Amiami and is due by late November.
