Hobby Japan is all about exclusives but will sometimes brings us such figures we haven't seen anywhere else (which is partially disappointing). Their bread and butter has typically come from the Queen's Gate name of artwork.
The latest in magazine scans show that Noel Vermillion from BlazBlue putting on red for her outfit and dying her hair black. Two of my favorite colors but I still can't get behind the design of this figure. I know she's a tiny person but the body looks way too petite and that pose looks so unnatural. The 1/8-scale Queen's Gate Ao no Keishousha Noel Vermillion 2P Color Ver. will be available in March, 2013.
Fans of Hyakka Ryouran will see the 1/8-scale Jubei Yagyu Hakugin no Kenki ver. flying their way between April and May of 2013. It's a cute pose and I admit a bit of lift on a shirt does push some buttons. Unfortunately, not too big on what's underneath but I expected such from this title. Everything else looks great that's attached to Jubei including the sword, armor pieces, and even the eye patch. I also enjoy how shapely the legs are designed on these figures.
Finally, the upcoming movie Inazuma Eleven GO VS Danball Senki W will be seeing the Achilles D9 get a figure in what appears to be a part of a special event. So the exciting news seems to be for Hyakka Ryouran fans with the new Jubei coming down the line. Does it tickle your fancy or the new color for Noel?
