Here’s a quick roundup of figure news within the past few days, mostly for May 2008 figure releases:
Kotobukiya has revealed preorder details for their 1/8 scale Tabitha from Zero no Tsukaima. She comes with a removable cloak, and will be released on May 2008 with a retail price of 5,040 Yen. Hopefully they’ll do Siesta or Henrietta next! Also from Kotobukiya is the next entry in their ToHeart 2 Another Days “Maid Version” series of figures, the high-strung Yuma Tonami! This 1/8 scale figure will be released on May 2008 as well, and will retail for 5,040 Yen.
Toy’sworks has announced that they will be releasing a 1/8 scale figure of Yuiko Kurugaya from Key’s Little Busters! in a really seductive pose! This PVC+ABS figure will have a retail price of 6,800 Yen and will be released May 2008.
Preorders for the next wave of Kaiyodo‘s Revoltech figure releases for March 2008 have also shown up: No. 046 Starscream and No.047 Hot Rodimus from The Transformers! They will retail for 1,995 Yen each. In other Revoltech-related news, Kaiyodo has announced that they will be releasing their Revoltech Gurren Lagann figure at the upcoming Wonder Festival 2008 Winter event, 3 months before the official release date! I wonder how much it’ll be sold for at Yahoo!Auctions.jp afterwards. x_x
