Is there such a thing as having too many Taiga figures? ^^; And the answer is, of course, no way! That is why I did not hesitate to order this lovely Taiga figure by ques Q. Who is Ques Q you ask? Well, I really didn’t know of them either until this figure but if they continue to make figures like this I think they’ll become more popular in the future. They have crafted this lovely tiger costume version of one of my favorite characters, Aisaka Taiga from the romance comedy series Toradora. Read on for more pretty pictures :)
Today, Hinagiku graciously cosplays for us and even sings a song ^^. Continue reading 'HiNAgiku Katsura'»
Normally, when I buy a figure it’s because I love the character of which the figure is modeled as is evident from the multitude of Kagami and Lucky Star figures in my possession. Every once in a while though a figure is simply so attractive that I just want it, regardless of whether or not I know much or anything about the character. And so, Okami-san was pre-ordered ;).
Every so often you come across one of those figures that so precisely reminds you of why you like to like to collect figures in the first place. Amazingly enough, I’ve got two such figures right here in this post, though their release dates were quite some time apart. Alter has really hit the mark with their two Odin Sphere figures: Gwendolyn and more recently Mercedes. I have decided to group these two figures together into a single, awesome-filled post ;) Read on for more details and pretty pics.
Finally a new(ish) figure review! Good Smile Company recently released Black Rock Shooter figure found its way to me last week and I’ve got some piccies to prove it ;) Although I did not purchase first BRS figure (black rock cannon version), I seriously was tempted at the time. That is why when I saw the awesome-looking Blade version, I decided to not let her pass me by again!
I have purchased several Toradora figures recently and have decided to review them all in a single post. I’d like to start with Kotobukiya’s 1/8 scale Taiga Aisaka which was released in October last year. Sadly, she was a mail order exclusive and thus was a tad more difficult to obtain. Thankfully, Tokyo Hunter was able to order it for me ^^. It was the first time I had used his service and he was able to promptly ship it out when it arrived :) Was a bit more expensive than most deputy services but if you want to order an actual mail order-only item when there isn’t even a Japan-only web order form, I would recommend his service.

Wave’s 1/8 scale Aisaka Taiga figure is now open for reservation!
This is the figure I’ve been watching for some time now, starting with the unpainted prototype shown at Wonder Festival. I have to say Taiga looks quite cute from these images but I’m weary of the swappable faces it features. All the figures with swappable faces that I’ve seen tend to have more noticeable seams on their heads.
Still, I like the figure. The laughing face, smiling face, and sad faces all look good though I personally prefer to keep my Taigas happy ^^. Quite likely I will be getting her. She is available for reservation at Hobby Search for 7,125 yen and will be released in December.
But wait, there’s more! Order now and you’ll receive a free Minami Chiaki Nendoroid!
OK, maybe not but Chiaki is also now available for reservation at Hobby Search. I’m really glad to see the Minami-ke Nendoroids starting ^^. Can’t wait for Kana xD
