Weekly Toys Update: Women as idols, with school idols Kousaka Tamaki and Kusugawa Sarara, teen idols Amami Haruka, Yakuza lady Naomi, all stars from Star Wars & more!


Welcome to this week's toys update. Check out the wonderful collectibles we just got in stock and all the new products made available for preorder.

As toys, especially collectible ones, are produced in limited numbers and are often sold out prior to the actual release date, we strongly recommend to preorder the figures of your desire as early as possible.

A figure of Kousaka Tamaki from To Hearts is chosen as the bargain of the week and the cover girl of this news update. Tamaki is one of the most popular girls both within and outside the famous dating game. She is constantly seen as being surrounded by a group of followers from her school in the game and have a large fanbase in the gamers community.

Her confidence and maturity are one of the few reasons aside from beauty that contributes to her tremendous appeal, and her figure designer HIDE decides to focus on these aspects.

By sculpting her in an alluring pose he portrays her glamour, and by putting details into her eyes that seems to stare straight into your own, he brings out her confidence. To soften the whole package, the designer added layers of frills to her bikini to capture her innocent charm.

Tamaki, in her frilly bikini, is now sold at a bargain price of US$ 19.90 only and the maximum purchase is limited to 1 piece per customer. As usually, this weekly special is valid for exactly 1 week (if not sold out earlier).

Super deformed figures of characters from one of the hottest sci-fi movies came out. The Kubrick series consist of the major characters from Star Wars - The Phantom Menace. After watching their slick actions on screen, it's an enjoyable experience to play with them in the palm of your hand. May the force be with you!

As an aspiring idol, it is important for Amami Haruka to be able to move freely, naturally and gracefully. By having all the minute joints, a special feature of Frauline Revoltech figures, installed into her tiny body, she can bend and twist into the most photogenic of postures.

She comes with a set of accessories that goes with her gothic princess style: butterfly wings, bracelets, anklets, a cat's tail and a tiara. These accessories can be assembled with other characters in the series, so feel free to design the best outfit for your idols.

Quite a lot of interesting preorders are opened this week. One of the newer characters from the To Heart2 universe are joining in the league of collectible figures. Kusugawa Sarara is an eccentric girl hidden behind her French doll facade. Her maker Shiketa Udonko has brought her to life by crafting out her blank expression and the distant look in her eyes.

Naomi, drawn by the renowned figure designer Yamashita Shunya and crafted by Ogasawara Taketo, depicts a woman torn between the two Yakuza codes of conduct, giri and ninjo. While giri demands that she acts like one of the tough men in her gang, she is entitled to enjoy her priviledges as a woman under the ninjo code. By blending both masculine and feminine elements together, Naomi is definitely a collector's item.

The lists below show what has been released this week and what is available for preordering.
