Figutto Zoids Girl Shield Liger is now up for pre-order

There are a few things that I haven't expected. Mecha musume is nothing new, especially with the long-running Busou Shinki line, the popularity of Strike Witches and the recent release of Bandai's Armored Girl Plus line. The ...

Reserve or Regret? Import round up for May 11, 2012

It's all about Griffon Enterprises plus one for today's Reserve or Regret. Of course there's more Touhou Project from this company. Why would there not be? Griffon will be releasing the 1/8-scale saint Toyosatomimi no Miko (t...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 7: Griffon Enterprises
by Natalie Kipper

Treasure Festa is going on right now in Japan and Griffon Enterprises has a ton of new items to show off. A large portion of the figures previewed were from the doujin series, Touhou Project, with characters like Remilia Scarlett and Koishi Komeiji (she actually has two figures). There was also a display of a new Genmu Senki Leda figure of the series' red-haired heroine, Yoko. Other toys were teased via drawings or photos. A Figutto Zoidsgirl personifying the Zoid Shield Lyger is in development. Hideyoshi Kinoshita of the anime, Baka to Test to Shokanjuu, will be made into a 1/7-scale figure as well. Three series were named for upcoming figures sans the names of the chosen characters; all we are given are silhouettes. Those series are Another, Ano Natsu de Matteru, and the MMO, Sword Art Online.

Playing opposite of the lovely ladies (and gentleman), were the dinosaurs of Griffon Enterprises' Master Fossil series. There seems to be both fossilized and life-like versions of the models, as shown by the "Skeleton Model series" Allosaurus and the rest of the figures belonging to the "Life Model series." While the majority of them were the typical Tyranosaurus and Velociraptor variety, it was nice to see more obscure scaly guys like the Anomalocaris and Diplocaulus. 

Check out the gallery to see all of new figures that were on display at Griffon Enterprises' booth at Treasure Festa in Ariake 7. What do you think of this line-up? Any guesses as to who the teased silhouettes are?

Preorders open for the Hitagi Figutto of Bakemonogatari

It's funny that Griffon Enterprises would make a surprise announcement of their next Figutto figure when we haven't even seen a release of a single one, yet. Also doesn't help that the entire line has been delayed. Perha...
