Looks like Gunnar Viking has landed on the pegs. Not sure what case this is from – CASE G? Presumably the rest of case are repeats? Looks like Ishani is back? Thanks for the heads up and photos, “Lane Change.” Tweet This Post

It's been a slow week for PVC news, but I am glad that Akiba Hobby posted this particular gallery. Alter had a few enticing items on display at MegaHobby Expo this past fall, including a new figure of Asuka sporting her Evangelion 3.33 look.
While the figure itself isn't extraordinary, I'm just glad to see a proper Evangelion 3.33 figure in the works. The majority of such offerings are either cheap (prize figures and Revoltechs) or way outside my budget (Medicom's RAH figures).
Thanks to the more in-depth gallery, we can get a closer look at Asuka's butt cleavage. Because really, that's the most important thing. You can also see that her hat is removable, and she seems to have an alternate pose for her left arm.
My favorite thing about this figure is her expression. Asuka figures tend to have a cheerful (or at least neutral) disposition. This one looks weary and a bit irritated, which is extremely appropriate given that Evangelion 3.33's storyline is entirely about Shinji's poor life choices. He has caused Asuka - and many others - a lot of trouble, and this figure reflects exactly that.
Nothing like an old school … releases still hanging around on the pegs. “Sarah S.” sends us this nice pic from Germany. I believe this was only released in the US as “Cruisin’ Ramone?” I think “Old School Ramone” was on Canadian and English EU cards? Australia? So for card completists, your Collect ‘em All […]
Rotofugi's first gallery shows of 2014 are opening next week, and two familiar names are kicking off the year. Jeremiah Ketner's Day Dreaming and Yosiell Lorenzo's Woodland Orphans will feature both artists' works on canvas. Yosiell should also be bringing along some of his sculptures, if Rotofugi's description of the exhibition is accurate. I wonder if that means any new Sicklings ...
Both Jeremiah and Yosiell's shows open from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 10 at Rotofugi (2780 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago) and run through Feb. 9.

Well, we made it. We’re in 2014. Every year past 2000 seems like the crazy future to me- that’s what happens when your childhood was in a different century. We’re working to get back into our usual routines after the holidays: school starts next week, the Christmas tree needs to come down (sigh!), and there […]

Well, this is much nicer than the magazine scans we saw last week. Bandai has posted all the details on their S.H. Figuarts Cure Heart (from DokiDoki! PreCure) along with tons of pretty, pretty pictures. The magical girl stands at 150 millimeters tall and will come packaged with her Love Heart Arrow weapon, her fairy companion Sharuru, and multiple face and hand parts.
Looking at her gallery photos (more can be found here), you can get a feel for how this figure will look in a variety of poses. You can also have a a better look at some of the details of the toy. In Cure Heart's colorful outfit, there are frills, layers, and ribbons. Her boots and hairpiece look lovely as well.
Fans can pre-order S.H. Figuarts Cure Heart at the usual online retailers when reservations open on January 7 for ¥4,860. She is scheduled to ship in May 2014.

It's always a joy to look at Ernesto's photography. Today he sent this charming shot of Agnes Dreary to me in an email. Isn't she just wonderfully creepy?
Pay particular attention to the lighting - how it models her face. Also, see how the lighting on her hands and her face get your eyes to travel back and forth between these two most important parts of the image. Masterful work!
