Though it may be that time of the year for us in the States to go into a food coma, Japan still can't pull a fast one on us like they have with the latest magazine scans. Oodles of delicious tidbits have come pouring out over at 2chan just before a few companies attend this weekend's MegaHobby EXPO on November 25, 2012.
It was last month that we saw MegaHouse give another look at the sculpt of the 1/8-scale High Priestess Chie Satonaka from Persona 4. It's was an immediate buy then and now that is set in stone for sure with the latest scans showing her off in full color. She'll be including two faces, her glasses, and and alternate body to have her jacket around her waist. As much as that jacket is swanky, my eyes are locked on her eyes as well as those lips. Still no release date set on this one but hopefully we'll see her up for pre-order around MegaHobby EXPO.
Also from last month is another look at the 1/8-scale Excellent Model Yunoha Thrul from Aquarion EVOL. Few new details are available but we can see there is more detail added to this prototype such as the painted eyes and the boots. This 130mm tall figure will be available sometime in 2013. Whatever became of MegaHouse's The iDOLM@STER 1/7-scale Brilliant Stage Futami twins from 2010? Well, they are still coming. Sometime. Someday. It looks like MegaHouse scrapped the original ones from them with new ones that have a more dynamic pose and can be hooked together. Still look creepy with the shape of those faces and no eyes. Surprisingly, not release date yet. What's the deal MegaHouse?
This is just a sample of what was revealed from MegaHouse. They have even more coming but that should be no surprise given that their big event is this weekend. Really, the highlight of these three has to be Persona 4's Chie. Do you agree or are you more interested in one of the other girls?
