Volks give their own version of a taste of heaven

Stairway to Heaven!

While many eyes are on Comiket, which happened over this weekend, Volks decided to hold their own event called Hobby Tengoku and showed off some of their products, old and new to visitors.

At the top of the list is the debut of Bertille Alchiselle, another heroine from Walkure Romanze (Seriously, how many girls are there from that game?). She was first announced a few weeks ago on the event site but this is the first time the public has been able to see (and place an order) for her. I'm somewhat tempted myself, but after getting Akane, I don't think I could stretch myself for another. Not yet anyway.

Also along for the ride is Akiyama Yukari, another character from Girls und Panzer. She'll be joining her captain, Miho, as a charagumin kit in February. Probably at Wonder Festival. Also on the Charagumin line is Revy from Black Lagoon. There's no kit for her because she will be on sale at the start of the new year, January 1st in fact! Look out for her at the New kit Exhibition!

T-ELOS was also shown again along with an old favourite in the shape of KOS-MOS. Man, I wish mine looked that pristine! Still waiting for T-ELOS to be shipped as well! Soon...

Bringing up the rear are older Charagumin kits such as Gaury and a chibi Lina Inverse from Slayers, Etna with her prinnies from Disgaea and the main ladies of Valkyria chronicles! We also get another glimpse of Amil from Shining Hearts (still unpainted, unfortunately) and Nagisa from Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity.

Looks like we have some things to look forward to from Volks for the new year. I'm sure they'll have some surprises in store for us as well.
