Mikatan has updated their blog with new images — fully painted this time — of the upcoming 1/8 scale figure of “Ultimate Madoka,” from ã€ŒPuella Magi Madokaâ˜†Magicaã€, by Good Smile Company. A promotional video was also released in support of the product.
A bit late in posting this but there were a ton of things I had to catch up on as soon as I got back from my “five-day” 4th of July weekend. Anyway here is a rundown of just about everything I did at this year’s Anime Expo convention in Los Angeles.
A new promotional video for ã€ŒBlackâ˜…Rock Shooter: THE GAMEã€ was shown at the Wonder Festival 2011 Winter event held this weekend. It featured new original character White Rock Shooter — who carries a giant white and magenta colored scythe. A WRS figma will be distributed with the limited edition of the PSP game. It is slated to be released Summer 2011. You may check out the trailer after the jump.
Over the weekend I received the latest figure releases from MegaHouse’s “Excellent Model Series” lineup — Cure Blossom and Cure Marine from the 7th Precure series, ã€ŒHeartcatch Precureã€. Seeing as how passionate I am when it comes to anything Precure related, I was really anxious to get my hands on these two girls and share some photos right here on the blog.
Fresh from Wonder Festival 2010 Summer are photos of this beautifully detailed Hatsune Miku 1/8 scale PVC figure (“Love is War” ver.) from Good Smile Company. No release date or price available at this time.
That one US anime convention that occurs every 4th of July weekend out here in Southern California has now ended. Just like the last 2 previous years, Anime Expo was again held in Los Angeles at the LACC. This would be my 4th actual visit to the event — my 2nd where I stayed all four days.
Nendoroid figures of Kagamine Rin (equipped with a mic) and Kagamine Len (equipped with a keyboard) will be available for pre-order June 4th. Each will come with four face parts, including “mouth open,” “mouth closed,” “fan-design,” and blank face. Decals are available for the blank face to create your own customized configuration. Scheduled for release October — 3,000 yen each.
We all know how first round preorders for Volks’ Hatsune Miku sold out within a day. Now it’s time to see how Vocaloid idol Kagamine Len will do as his 1/6 figure is released this coming winter season… (Rin was earlier confirmed on Volk’s blog as well.)
Burichan! You know, something like this really should have came out during the “Bridget” explosion of a few years back. But better late than never.
