Though not as plentiful as the PVC offerings, Kotobukiya did have some new figures for their super deformed, poseable Cu-Poche line shown at the Kotobukiya Hobby Exhibition event in Akihabara. Again, just like the PVC figures, Kotobukiya did do some teasing but the it wasn't hard for people to guess who each figure was.
For those who didn't want to deal with the plastic model kit, you now have the option of owning Saber from Fate/stay night in her cute mini form. Also shown in an unpainted state was the popular Dark Magician Girl from Yu-Gi-Oh. For those who want little sister Kirino from OreImo even cuter, you now have the option with this line from Kotobukiya.
Kotobukiya also had on display the two products we knew were coming from this new line of figures. The first is Haruka from The iDOLM@STER who also brings a large, happy smile like some of her friends from the title. And lastly, the original announcement figure of Madoka from Puella Magi Madoka Magica who is the only one shown with the various face options available.
It's a relatively new figure series especially since most figures will be available in 2013 but Kotobukiya is doing what it can to build it with characters that they hope fans will get behind. Is there anyone in the community that has any interest in Kotobukiya's Cu-Poche line of figures? Does the poseability make this more appealing to you than other super deformed figure series? And, of course, is there anyone from the event that you see yourself buying once available?
