September Hobby Japan Scans

September Hobby Japan Scans
22 Jul 2010 17:32:20

Well, scans of the newest issue of Hobby Japan are making their way onto the *chans, and with them, come several interesting new figures. First off, we have the highly-anticipated Figma Asuka!



Given that she includes all the accessories the Fraulein had AND an entry plug, Kaiyodo's pretty much screwed as far as EVA girls go. Asuka will be coming out in December.



Next, we have a Figma of Adult Mikuru! This one is also coming out in October - that's what, 6 Figmas coming out that month? Luckily, I'm not a huge fan of Mikuru. However, if you want this version (which also, for some reason, includes a desk), it'll be 2800Y.



After that, we have Nendoroids. There's Disappearance Yuki Nagato, which is basically just the old Yuki Nendo with new faces and a bonus jacket. She's coming out in November. There's also Cattleya from Queen's Blade, which strikes me as one of the least-fitting, most hilariously inappropriate ideas for a Nendoroid possible. She comes with a Nendoroid Petit of her kid (what was his name? I'm drawing a blank here), too.



Revoltech Jason. That's simultaneously lolwut and OHGODMUSTGET. So many accessories! Now I can recreate Friday the 13th with my Figmas!




New S.H. Figuarts releases. From Pretty Cure, we have Cure White and Cure Black; and from Kamen Rider W, we have Kamen Rider Accel Trial Form. Accel is a TamashiiWeb exclusive.



Speaking of PreCure, there's this Eas PVC, too. Looks like a pretty nice sculpt if you ask me.




Some new Busou Shinkis, too. I like the spider one.



What is this I don't even...



Almost as bizarre are these stackable Misakas. There's also some rather derpy-looking Bakemonogatari statues.



Here we have Kotobukiya's model kit of Roll. Thanks to Kajico for letting me know about this one. It seems like she'll have a lot of extra parts, like boots and her hair from MvC2.



Due for a November release is this statue of Internet Co.'s new Vocaloid, Lily. While I'm neutral about Lily, I hope that this leads to a Gakupo figure of some sort.



And finally, we have Tony Taka's Hatsune Miku, which has been in development hell for a while now. No release date given.

At least they're only optional parts, rather than having people buy two Rolls.

I hope to Cthulhu we get a Robert Englund Freddy, too.

She's a great figure for a kit, very sturdy and articulated enough to play with. I have Combat-San with the dress and she's just as sturdy and even has a bit bigger range of motion. Really great figures for being kits.

But it just makes it so hard to decide. Like when there's a variant you like, you never know if they're gonna announce a better color scheme next month.

Oh, thanks for sharing! Figma Asuka and Mikuru are must for me.
I love Asuka's confused face a lot, and same as mu-san, I collect all haruhi figma releases. And this sleeping face of young Mikuru - it comes with her adult ver. I suppose?

As for nendo Yuki - I'm no big fan of nendos now (a year ago I was, actually), but Yuki is my favorite, so I may get her in the end.

Or not... because there will be a KyotoAni 1/8 figure of her with jacket and outstretched hend. There are no painted prototype photos yet, but she impressed me. Maybe I'll prefer her and skip he nendo.
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

Yeah, it's pretty safe to assume that the sleeping face will come with big Mikuru. It would also make sense for Big and Little Mikurus to be able to swap faces, given that all those Haruhis can swap faces.

With Nendo Yuki, you might want to wait to see the colored KyoAni Yuki. Although I heard that the KyoAni Yuki will be an exclusive, which would mean MASSIVE DAMAGE to your wallet's weak point.

Being a huge Asuka fan I'm definitely getting Figma Asuka, I am not a huge fan of Mikuru but it's tempting considering the school desk for sets and her body would make for great head swaps.

I've never been a fan of backwards looking statues, they make it so hard to align a proper viewing angle.

Still no release date on PreCure Black and White, they've been announced since February, Bandai is slow poking it but hopefully it's to make it better than their other PreCure SHFs. Still it frustrates me because I've have been wanting these two ever since Bandai decided to do SHF PreCures. Now I'm anxious for Blossom, Marine and Sunshine.

Proxima (Centaur Shinki) is going to be my 5th Shinki. I never understood the appeal of them till I got my first one (Espadia), and now I have four: Espadia, Lancamento, Altrene and Valona on the way. Looks like 2011 is gonna be just as expensive as 2010

With Asuka, I'm gonna wait to see if there's a classic plugsuit/eyepatch variant announced at WF. Asuka is awesome, but pirate Asuka is even better. And I'm waiting to see what people will do with big Mikuru's body - I remember some hilarious photos being made from Lum and Jessica Nopants.

My guess is that Tamashii Nations (which is in about 2 weeks, IIRC) will reveal the release date for Cure Black and White. I'm also hoping for the announcement of a Kamen Rider Eternal Figuarts.

I don't own any Shinkis yet; they look cool, but I've decided to avoid them because I know that I'll probably get hooked, leading me to want to get the older, rarer ones I like, resulting in a very discontent wallet.

I'm waiting to hear on Eternal too, inevitably it will be a web exclusive. Aside from Nazca it's the only exclusive I'm willing to pay for. Sorry Trial, I didn't even by Accel why would I buy you.

I am also waiting for regular plugsuit Asuka with the eyepatch BUT being an Asuka fan gotta catch them all...

Protip: Don't let a friend convince you to buy just one, it won't end with one. Altrene was gonna be my one and only but a friend convinced me to buy Espadia and now here I am.

I'm hoping Tamashii Nations also announces Heartcatch SHFs, the statues look nice I noticed you don't have the Eas statue scan I am actually considering that one myself even though I don't have an SHF Eas.

I'm not entirely sure if Eternal will be an exclusive or not. On one hand, the Kabuto movie Riders sold poorly as a standard release, but on the other hand, W stuff is selling like hotcakes in Japan. Also, doesn't Eternal have two forms? I could see them releasing his normal version as a standard release, and Maximum Drive form as an exclusive. Either way, I'd probably end up getting both.

As for Accel Trial, I'm gonna pass - I prefer normal Accel. And I'm hoping that the impressive sales of Nazca will lead to a Weather Dopant Figuarts. I guess we'll see come TN.
