Idol M@ster's Yukiho Hagiwara is the next Cu-Poche figure photo
Idol M@ster's Yukiho Hagiwara is the next Cu-Poche figure
by Natalie Kipper

Yesterday, Kotobukiya announced the next figure coming to their lovable Cu-Poche figure line, Idol M@ster's Yukiho Hagiwara. The aspiring pop singer will be shrunk down to chibi proportions, standing at a mere 4 and a half inches tall. Like other figures in the toy line, Yukiho will have 14 points of articulation, allowing for all manner of fun poses. That's not even mentioning her accessories. She will come packaged with a hard hat, shovel, cup of tea, drill, and microphone plus several different facial expressions.

Judging by the photos, the detail in the figure is looking lovely. Yukiho's outfit is colorful and manages to appear lacy at the bottom of the skirt. I also noticed that her hard hat has a wrap-around design on it. Nice touch! Fans of Idol M@ster will surely want to get there hands on this one when she ships in June 2014 (pricing is currently unknown).

Preview and Pre-order GSC's Cinderella Girl Uzuki photo
Preview and Pre-order GSC's Cinderella Girl Uzuki
by Jon Wills

Some of you may have heard of Idol M@ster's social game Cinderella girls, however seeing how it is a Japanese only social game I doubt many of us have had much experience with it. Still we have seen a few of their designs such as GSC's fantastic looking Rin Shibuya. Next up in the line is this beautiful Uzuki Shimamura.

Her design is pretty in pink and kind of tacky with it's mix of plaid and non plaid. Still I have to say this is the sort of cheerleader whom I would like cheering me on. I like all the ruffles and ribbons and flowers in her hair and blouse. I could go on and on about how pretty she is actually but check out those cool buttons on her blouse, all three are different colors which is a nice touch.

 Okay honestly she is sort of gorgeous and I will totally be looking at my available funds for when she is released in late April of next year. Uzuki is also expected to ship out at an affordable price of ¥8800. I could use more red and pink in my collection, how about you all?
