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 :)
For those of you that are familiar with my taste in anime girls, you know I like a good tsundere ^^; So when I saw that Kotobukiya was releasing another Taiga figure, I jumped on the chance to order her. And I’m glad I did! She arrived last week and here I present to you the 1/6 scale Aisaka Taiga by Kotobukiya.
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.

Happy New year everyone! Welcome to 2010, year of the Taiga ^^;
This year’s Saimoe contest winner is none other than the tenori tiger herself: Aisaka Taiga :) Glad to see one of my favorite characters getting recognized ^^
Moetron has a good summary of the contest and votes. Congrats to Taiga for pulling off the victory over another moelicious rival, Yui from K-ON! Enjoy a few pics of Taiga to celebrrate (more at Moetron too!)
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
