Following yesterday’s public holiday in Japan, we have a handful of new items up for preorder.

From Square Enix’s Static Arts Gallery, seemingly a new sub-series of the Static Arts series, ‘Final Fantasy VII’ sees a new figure of Vincent Valentine, as designed by Nomura Tetsuya. Despite being quite a small figure at only 14cm, he looks to be quite good considering the style. And it’s a new Vincent figure, so if you’re a fan…

The life of a KanColle fan is never dull when it comes to figures. Mutsuki Kai Ni is the next character from Aoshima and Funny Knights to come up for preorder. Her brown to red ombre and exposed tummy is very nice to look at. Definitely a distraction from that whale shark mouth.

Manufacturer: Aoshima/Funny Knights
Category: 1/7th Scale
Price: ¥11,800 (Before Tax)
Release Date: December 2016

AlphaMax often pick up titles that don’t receive much love and create magnificent pieces from them. Haruna Mishima from Sega’s music arcade game ‘Chunithm’ is fitting that wonderful space of cute and classy and that partial stair base is a fantastic choice. Unfortunately that pose doesn’t lend itself to looking good from all angles. The first press also comes with a postcard.
