This is the Gothic Lolita Haruhi figure by Griffon, if you didn’t know Haruhi is from the show The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Although she never actually wore the outfit in this figure in the anime series, there is a cute illustration of Haruhi, Mikuru, and Yuki all dressed in cute gothic/lolita clothing that this figure was inspired from.

Horo (Spice and Wolf) Cospa

October 17, 2008

This is Horo (or Holo) from the anime Spice and Wolf, the figure is by Cospa. I’m only about 4 episodes into the anime but I can already tell that I’ll like this series, I’m rapidly becoming attached to the main characters. I probably should be more fond of Horo but I think I prefer Lawrence as my favorite character from the series. This is my first figure by Cospa and I’ll definitely try and keep an eye out on their future figure releases, I like their quality and their attention to details. This figure is based on Horo’s look from the anime (I hear the Kotobukiya Horo is based more on her look in the light novels).

Chi (Art Storm) Chobits

September 8, 2008

This is a figure of Chi by Art Storm, Chi is from the anime series/manga Chobits. This figure has MANY bootlegs on eBay from what I can see, so be careful on where/who you purchase it from. I happened to see it at Robert’s Anime Corner Store for $40 a few weeks ago and excitedly added it to my cart. This figure is actually pretty large she is a 1/5 scale figure (most figures are only 1/8) so $40 really was a good price. Art Storm makes one other figure of Chi that I’ve read awful reviews on (she is standing with one leg up with a finger in front of her lips) so even though I don’t own it I can safely say I don’t recommend it based on all the reviews I’ve read. She is unstable and she snaps at the ankle eventually. However, I knew I’d be safe on a figure in this pose, I mean…where is she going to snap in that position?

Lucia (BOME) Vol. 25

August 19, 2008

This figure is Mitsumi Misato Lucia by BOME from ‘Positive Penguin Life’. Lucia is an original character created by illustrator and game designer Mitsumi Misato. I saw a poor picture of this figure before and thought she was based on some tacky character from the 80’s, pretty much it was the hairstyle and the fact that she is wearing what appears to be a red patent leather outfit 😛 . One day I was randomly looking over the 26 BOME PVC figures and when I looked at her prototype pictures she caught my eye in a more positive way.
