Artist Tony Taka has been getting a lot of attention within the last year by figure makers who finally realize the popular demand of his art. Figure maker Native has been cashing in with limited releases of figures based off of Tony's art, and now another company hopes to do the same. Etsu, a spinoff company by Clayz, will be releasing a 1/6 PVC figure of cat earred maid girls in March 2010 for 14,800 yen. These can only be obtained from Japanese online retailer amiami or from the manufacturer's site.

Fans of Korean MMORPG Lineage II will instantly recognize this figure donning the rank A Majestic Robe Set. The figure will come with a staff and a sword. Her jacket is removable; however, there is a rather obvious seems line visible on the arms. Not much more can be said about this figure until it's release. Orchid Seed has had a rather mixed history with overall quality of their PVC figures. So far from the available pictures, the figure looks pretty impressive.

Seen previously at Wonder Festival Summer 2009, Alter will be releasing a new 1/7 scale Takamachi Nanoha figure based on the upcoming Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha movie. It appears she will come with interchangeable arms and 2 forms of her weapons. Fans may remember Alter had previously made a mediocre figure of Nanoha back in 2006, this time around we can safely say they have made significant improvements. Lets not forget Alter has also made a grown up version of Nanoha set to be released in October. Will Alter remake Fate Testarossa? Based on current trends, most likely yes. More pictures of Nanoha inside.
Announced a while ago on Max Factory's blog, amiami has gotten some in hand shots of the 1/7 scale Hatsune Miku. A bit late to the party though, as Volks and Goodsmile released their renditions some time ago. I definitely like this one better than Goodsmile's 1/8 scale version. She will be released in November for approximately 8,000 yen.
