Touhou Project figma Hakurei Reimu reissued!

You might remember back in April when GSC was doing their big poll on what figures fans would like to see get reissued that Reimu was #5 on the figma list. So now, making good on their promise to do everything in their power to get these figures back up for sale, Max Factory will be offering Reimu up as a limited pre-order! And the best part is this time around she's available outside Japan through the GoodSmile online shop for 2,800 yen and 2,000 yen flat rate shipping. Orders will be taken until July 4th at 9:00pm Japanese time and ship in October.

And it doesn't end there, Kirisame Marisa has also been confirmed for reissue with details coming soon. Marisa ranked #13 on the poll.

On a side note, GSC continues to update the poll to show which figures have been reissued.   read

First colored look at figma Karen Araragi apear!

First previewed back at Wonder Festival Winter and then later shown off in unpainted prototype form, we're now being treated to our first look at figma Karen Araragi in full color! Looking great with body joints hidden by her soft plastic hoodie and shirt, while other joints blend in smoothly with the folds of her clothes. She also comes with a nice array of accessories including two alternate faces, stocking feet, 11 alternate hands, three effect parts, and alternate short hair from Nisemonogatari. Only thing missing is her toothbrush. Seriously, no matter what happens to her in the future she'll forever be known for the toothbrush torcher (?) scene in Nisemonogatari. Maybe if they make a casual Koyomi Araragi in the future he'll come with the toothbrush and an alternate face for Karen. I can only hope.

Due out in October for 3,048yen.   read

Gunslinger Girl goes figma with Henrietta

A little bit of a throw back for the figma line with scans of Gunslinger Girl's Henrietta appearing today. There hasn't been an anime since the OAV in 2008, though the manga still trudges on. Expect the rest of the girls to be announced before too long, then you can pit them against your other figma hitmen like Duke, Canaan, or the upcoming Kiritsugu.   read

Nyarko-san, the figma that creeps up beside you with a smile announced!

Just announced at the NicoNico Super Kaigi event going on as I type, a figma of Nyarko-san (a moe Nyarlathotep of Lovecraftian lore) from the series Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos has just been announced.

I'm pretty excited about it. The animated shorts were OK, but the new full length anime series currently airing is a lot of fun. Hope they make a Mahiro figure that can stab her with a fork!   read

Good Smile Racing 2012 goes global!

This year GSR will be opening personal sponcership worldwide. For the moment only the Basic Course, but they promise both the Nendoroid and figma courses will be announced soon!

Here's the complete email:

[b]As of today, Goodsmile Company Group together with Goodsmile Racing have opened a special site recruiting personal sponsors for our racing team GSR & Studie with TeamUKYO.
As the 2011 Champion Team of Japan's grand touring race series the Super GT, we've got our sights set on being successive champions this season! We'll be entering 2 cars in the 2012 Super GT.

Goodsmile Racing was based on the idea of having a racing team that's run by the fans, and has been entering Hatsune Miku emblazoned cars in Japan's grand touring race series, the Super GT, since 2008.
To embody this ideal to its utmost, we've created a personal sponsorship program that enables fans to become sponsors with only a small donation. Last year, we recruited over 16,000 personal sponsors within Japan alone.

As of 2012, we'll be accepting personal sponsorships not only from Japan, but from all over the world.
From March 12, we're offering a Basic Course sponsorship, which allows you to become a personal sponsor for as little as \3,000.

All those who apply for personal sponsorship will receive the following exclusive personal sponsor benefits:
-GSR&Studie with TeamUKYO Personal Sponsor Card
-Your handle name will appear on our website, as well as on the the circuit team paddock.*
*Available only for those sponsors who register their handle name when applying.

Personal sponsorships that include Nendroid and figma figures of team character "Racing Miku" will be announced in the near future.

Stay tuned![/b]   read

Here's my entry, and yes, it's free standing.

figma Guts from Berserk is on the way.

No real info yet, just enjoy the prototype pic. I probably wont get him, I was never a huge Berserk fan and he'll likely be out of scale with most other figma.

A second figma Kuroneko (from Oreimo) is on the way.

Even before the first figma of Kuroneko can be released yet another version, this time featuring a new pink and white goth outfit has been spotted. As usual the most current info has made it's way to But be prepared, there's a good chance of this one being an exclusive.
