[Bandai] 1/7 C.C. Figure

C.C is the next figure in the Emotion Style figure line by Bandai. A definite improvement over their Kallen, though I must admit their Villetta was sculpted quite nicely. C.C most likely will retail for around 6,500 yen. Villetta and Kallen will both be released in December 2008.

[Max Factory] New Haruhi Rocker Figures

Yes that's right folks, Max Factory has revealed at the 2008 Miyazawa Mokei Exhibition that they will be releasing Haruhi, Mikuru, and Yuki in their rocker outfits from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya in 1/8 scale PVC form. Only photos of Haruhi has surfaced online while poster pictures are available of Mikuru and Yuki.

(Edit: We found a photo of all 3 figures over at Goodsmile's blog which has been included after the jump)

Definitely loving the detail work on the guitar but again like Max Factory's previous sculpts of Mikuru, there's something odd about her. Yuki looks fantastic.

Haruhi will be released sometime in March 2009.

More pictures after the jump.

New Ah My Goddess! Holybell Figure in Afternoon Magazine

Japanese seinen manga magazine Afternoon has included a new Holybell figure from Ah My Goddess! in their November 2008 issue. As to who the four eyes is, I have no idea. Any guesses? I will have to assume your generalized otaku?

The magazine retails for 680 yen and can be purchased from amazon.co.jp (product page here) or a local Japanese book store.

Get it while you still can!

More pictures including magazine cover inside.

[MegaHouse] Nanako Sakura Colored Photos

Akibahobby has gotten a few shots of a colored prototype of Nanako Sakura by MegaHouse. Judging by the noticable seamline on the figure's shoulder and unpainted prototype photos shown previously in Hobby Japan Magazine, it appears she will be somewhat castoffable.
