Hobby Japan January 2013 Figure Scans

Here are some figures that were showed in the January issue of Hobby Japan!


Aizu_Project_Yagyu_GisenCharacter: Gisen Yagyu
Series: Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls
Manufactuer: Aizu Project
Scale: 1/6 27 cm

Sigh, Aizu Project items are always so expensive. I believe this will be over 10,000 yen as well.


Character: Yagyu Kyubey
Series: Gintama
Manufactuer: Alpha Omega (Megahouse)
Scale: 1/8 19 cm

For a moment, I thought since when Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls have a Yagyu KYUBEY? Isn’t it Jubei? But then I realised this character is from Gintama.


Character: Yzak Jule
Series: Kidou Senshi Gundam SEED
Manufactuer: Alpha Omega (Megahouse)
Scale: 1/8 22 cm


Character:  Gumi – Mamama Style
Series: Vocaloid
Manufactuer: Aquamarine
Scale: 1/8 20 cm

Aquamarine! This new company established in 2011 is set to release Aria in march this year. Although the prototype pictures look promising  it is still uncertain how Aria will turn out until it is released. Hopefully it will not be a disappointment and dampen our excitement over the lovely Gumi here!

Scale: 1/8 12 cm


Character:  Gutto-Kuru Figure Collection Nyaruko

They look promising! Although there are already a lot of K-On! merchandises out there, we can see that Banpresto still like the girls a lot.


Character:  Shikinami Asuka Langley Evangelion 3.0 Plug Suit Ver
Series: Evangelion
Manufactuer: Kotobukiya
Scale: 1/6 22 cm

With the new movie released, I’m not surprised that a series of Evangelion girls are being announced with Kotobukiya starting the ball rolling.


Character:  Misaka Mikoto
Series: To Aru Majutsu no Index
Manufactuer: Kotobukiya

7.5 cm seems pretty small.


Character:  Aragaki Ayase Thanatos Cosplay Ver.
Series: Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii

Er… seriously? I doubt she’s a very popular character.


Character:  Misaka Mikoto ~Beach Sight~
Series: To Aru Majutsu no Index
Manufactuer: Kotobukiya

Is this the first time someone attempted to make water-like textured base? I’m curious to see how the actual product will look like.


Character:  Misty

Love the base! Can’t wait for the coloured prototype to be out!


Character:  Belldandy & Holly Bell
Series: Ah! Megami-sama
Manufactuer: Max Factory

It’s finally coloured and it looks amazing. I’m pretty sure the price is amazing too.

This sucks! Why must Asuna be an exclusive!

Series: Busou Shinki
Manufactuer: WAVE
Scale: 1/10


Character:  Elin
Series: Tera: The Exiled Realm of Arborea
Manufactuer: Yamato
Scale: 28 cm

I believe Yamato always had problems with the faces for their girls. Elin looks good but will it look the same as the actual?

Below are scans for figures that are Winter Wonderfest exclusives. Not really a fan of any of them, but I’m looking forward to VOLKS’s Charagumin characters!


Items from Orchid Seed.


Tanigawa Kanna by PLUM.



Some repaints from Griffon Enterprises for their current figures as usual.


Another few repaints from quesQ. I do like the repaints for Senjougahara Hitagi & Hachikuji Mayoi Ueda Hajime Ver.


Not really a fan of kits but characters from VOLKs Charagumin series always delights me. Mainly because it’s mostly painted and less job is needed compared to other kits. Just fix, touch up a bit, and tada!

So which figures are on your watch list? Let us know!
