Give her a round of applause. Aisaka Taiga has changed into a bunny girl suit to give fan service to her collectors. The purple bodice and the ears are painted with a silken sheen to give her that glint of glamour, while the tail looks soft to the touch.
Her sculptor Avira has crafted an array of Taiga figures, and is very experienced in capturing the layers of Taiga's personality. The puffed up cheeks look exceptionally adorable on her rounded face, and her scowl is one of her iconic expressions, but collectors are free to swap it for the happy smile for a change.
Taiga is coming this December:
|Toradora! 1/8 Scale Pre-Painted PVC Figure: Aisaka Taiga Bunny Girl Ver||JPN||US$ 78.49|

The collection includes the boys and girls from the most recent and most popular instalments, however, there is a secret version, a seventh character. Try your luck to see if you manage to get him or her. Line them up for a colourful display or scatter them around the room so every corner has a glitter of fantasy.
The Nendoroid Petit Figures are coming this December:
|Nendoroid Petite : Tales Of Series Mini Action Figures||JPN||N/A|
Hunt down the tyrant of the oceans and use his hide to create the ultimate armour. Nendoroid Studios is joining the fun as well. The Nendoroid swordsman is a fully moveable action figure with 23 points of articulation. The plates of the armour hides the joints so the swordsman's every pose looks ultra realistic, if not a little comical.
Put the massive sword in his grasp. The sculptors applied a special finishing to create the texture of the scales. It makes the swords look heavier and more lethal. The contrast between the metallic parts of the armour and the matt surface brings out the protective qualities of the armour.
The Lagia X Swordsman Nendoroid Figure is coming this November:
|Nendoroid Monster Hunter : Male Swordsman - Lagia X Edition||JPN||N/A|
The Angel of Extermination flies into the Nendoroid Studios to add a tint of cute horror to their Sora no Kiseki collection. Renne is the type of girl who smiles sweetly as she plans her killings. At times innocent and at times unimaginably cruel, she is a riddle that people just couldn't help but want to solve.
Her package comes with all the props that portray the two extreme sides of her personality. Her black rabbit doll and her ice cream show her at peace and her scythe represents her killer instincts. The collection of face pieces includes the close eyed look, the confident smile and the battle-cry. If you have Estelle, put Renne beside the older girl to re-create the scenes from the game.
Renne is coming in November:
|Nendoroid The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC : Renne||JPN||N/A|
The younger girls play an even bigger role in the Bakemonogatari spin off - Nisemonogatari. Sengoku Nadeko is back. After Araragi helps her solve her problems with the snake demon, she becomes a more energetic and cheerful girl.
However, she might need to save herself again, as the snake is back. Attach the clear snake to her ankles to give the cute display a sense of eeriness. And although her smile is heart meltingly cute, her troubled expression give the creepy scene that much urgency.
Now it's up to you to remove the snake spirit once and for all. Nadeko is coming in November:
|Bakemonogatari 1/8 Scale Pre-Painted PVC Figure: Sengoku Nadeko Kotobukiya Ver.||JPN||N/A|
The Seven Sisters Academy is rumoured to be full of pretty people. Lisa Silverman is here to prove it true. She has the bright blond hair and the aqua marine eyes and the demeanour of a traditional Japanese girl. The figure maker NoRi at Freeing shows her courage and her demureness through her posture.
The way her chin angles downward portrays a sort of shyness, but the way she stands show that she won't hesitate before jumping into action. The texture of her uniform and her shoes are distinguished by the clever application of gloss. The lines on her hair gives it an image of richness and softness.
Discover the secret behind the hideous curse with Lisa this November:
