For those people who grow tired of seeing brightly coloured happy, smiley, cute anime characters being made into figures, don’t despair. The latest Bible Black figure is about as dark, evil and creepy as anime figures get.
This 1/6 (27cm) figure of Imari Kurumi depicts her in a scene from Chapter VI of the Bible Black series, being attacked and molested by a devil that has grabbed her through a mirror. Imari’s terror filled expression seems to scream out of the figure itself.
One of the things that makes this figure unique is the way the devil is emerging from the mirror, the effect is very impressive. Also the semi-transparent wings are a nice added feature. As usual, in C-Works Bible Black tradition the bra and skirt can be removed, revealing Imari’s blue and white panties. Perhaps the panties are the only cute feature this figure has.
It’s here at last, Native Creator’s Collection volume 2. And this figure is going to raise a few eyebrows for sure.
This poor little space girl has been caught in a rather compromising position be evil intergalactic space tentacles and they are sure to have their way with her, that’s if you want them to anyway.
This figure has got some impressive credentials to its name. For a start it is 1/5 scale meaning this is a big figure (about 23cm), all the better to admire the finer details. Secondly, almost all the items of clothing and accessories on the character can be removed, revealing ALOT of flesh. Also the figure is based upon an illustration by Akiman and sculpted by Tsuyoshi Hamazaki, one of the finest figure sculptors. The figure should also be shipping with an illustration card by the original artist.
This delightful Emuko Kousoku figure is due for release January 2009 in Europe and is only available to persons over 18 years of age.
Arts Storm’s Shunya Yamashita Character Series continues this December with the release of Nasca, one of the more unique figures based upon Yamashita’s works. For collectors of Yamashita figures Nasca may look familiar to some and she does have many similarities with Revoltech Fraulein Pocco released by Kaiyodo. If they are based upon the same illustration or if they are supposed to be similar I don’t know.
I especially like the pose for this figure it is very sensual and revealing at the same time. The colours are also very soft made more so with the use of Art Storm’s excellent use of shading and highlighting.
As with all figures based upon Yamashita’s works there are the usual trademarks that make this figure a step ahead of the rest. These include the massive sword, sharp dazzling eye’s, revealing costume and erotic pose.
2009 is going to be a fantastic year for Shunya Yamashita fans, with most of the major manufacturers continuing their lines, Art storms Character Series (including Mine Yoshizaki) is looking to be the best in my opinion.
