On the figure side of things (we still do figures here?):
- Bishoujo Figure Convention Tokyo is on for a second year! December 3rd is the date with which to emblazon your calendars. Hoping to make it there this time…
- November’s edition of Dengeki Hobby Magazine, on sale September 25th, comes with a partially finished Ringo figure from Air Gear included. You can either try to complete the paint job yourself, or leave her standing there looking rather naked. With clear hair.
- According to November’s edition of Hobby Japan, a Queen’s Blade Ekidona (Echidna) PVC figure is currently in production. I don’t have an image yet (opted to pick up Dengeki instead), but she’s in the same pose as the one pictured in her profile on the official site. :3
- The Shinki-net Journal gives some examples of what you can do to customize your Busou Shinki figures from the kits now available. This is a scoop I’d like to cover more thoroughly in the future, when time and money allow…
I’m currently in PANIC MODE approaching Sunshine Creation on Sunday, so without further ado it’s back to furiously scribbling in the vain hope that something decent comes out…
