Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2015: figma

Back in February we got our first look at a bunch of new figma from Max Factory, Phat!, and FREEing. Since then we really haven't heard a whole lot outside of an occasional appearance here and there. While there's nothing her...

Kahotan has previewed Phat Company's 1/8-scale Miki Hoshii, which is also available for pre-order.

This crazy adorable figure comes an interchangeable glasses piece, allowing you to display her without or without the prop (although there aren't many reasons to go without). It's an absolutely endearing design with a good amount of detail.  Miki will run you around ¥7,992 and is slated for a February release.

[ Pre-order at AmiAmi ]

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).
