Normal Version

Limited Edition Version

Ugh, tempting. This looks very good. We have hot yet cool Natsuki and the bouncy Mai in swimsuit.. and a beachy base too. The figures may be small at 13 cm, but they come in a pair for the price of a 1/8 fig. Natsuki’s goggles are a nice touch. Their tight bodies are a nicer touch.





Secret and Konuri

Yet another 3D design figure set from Happinet Robin, this time its the very moe Petopeto set. This looks much better than the Ichigo Mashimaro set, the 3d Design style just fits it a lot better.

This was the only Ichigo Mashimaro figure set that I did not purchase as it looked ugly then. But now, Happinet Robin have announced that they will be making a repainted version, and including Nobue too! The original set only had the four lolis in two costumes each and four secret figures. This repainted one will consist of the five characters, with 2 costumes each and 1 secret.

Set to be released in June 2006 by CM’s,  this is one set of 2 figurines from OKG costing a total of 3,990 yen. For those interested, the little girl is Anna Medaiyu, the Princess of the dome that the series started out in. She was voluntarily kidnapped and brought along for the Exodus. Her pose here is seen in the OP animation, where the cast including the Overmen do the Monkey.

The first mecha Riuva is featuring in the Mecha Madness column is the Dominator!!!! What’s that, you ask? It ’s only the coolest organic robot to have graced the screens of otakus everywhere. For the benefit of the unenlightened, I will briefly explain why I chose it.
