Update! Preorder available here! The figures are finally available for order! But

They seem to be only available from Gift online store (unless you’re lucky enough to get them during a DRAMAtical Murder event held early Feb 2015 早春ドラマダ市). You can try your luck at Yahoo! Japan auctions if you are only after some of the characters. They have already started to pop up :)

I was really surprised that Nitro+Chiral didn’t work with Kotobukiya again for their one-coin figures. Maybe Gift gave them a good deal considering that they are making DMMd 1/8 PVC (Aoba, Ren) and Nendoroid figures (Aoba, Noiz) Anyway, I wonder if these chibi figures have removable heads like their predecessors too? It’ll be a shame if they don’t :(

These are the official shots. Aoba looks pretty cute. I find Koujaku’s colours a bit off the mark.

Noiz and Clear look good. Unfortunately Clear didn’t come with his mask :(

Mink is cute too. I don’t really like his character, so… ^^;; And the secret is obviously Ren.

Dynamic duo Virus and Trip (his outfit’s colour is off too).

Overall I feel that the colours look a bit too washed-out since the official photos look over-exposed. They’re probably trying to go for a “cyberspace” look ^^;; Here are more shots of the figures from events and users under “normal” lighting.

The box packaging looks like the usual Kotobukiya ones. What do you think?

Anyway, I only ordered one box this time since I wasn’t overly excited by how they turned out. Maybe I’ll change my mind after I see the real thing.

  1. Aw that’s sad they didn’t release these through regular site and that koto wasn’t working on it. This is the first nitro+ chiral set i’ll be missing.;o;

    The colors do look washed out (and not right) and the sculpt seems not as sharp. I guess because it is prototype pics. Hopefully it turns out nice when you get them! Let us know when you get them. :D

    1. @Maria: Maybe they aren’t very confident with the new production and didn’t want to make too many o_O;; I can only keep my fingers crossed and hope the figures turn out well. I’ll try to do a review when I get them :) And by then, maybe Nitro’s international online store would carry them.

  2. was super excited when this set was announced, but the final painted ver. was disappointing. from the pics posted on MFC, paint job on these are rather lacking in detail. how did yours turn out?

    1. @iced_wine: Me too. I didn’t like how they turned out in the pics. I wasn’t motivated to pay extra just to get them earlier from the event. I’ll get mine only in April since I just ordered one set from Gift when preorder opened this week. Have you ordered yet?

    2. @ponytale: i’m skipping this set. i feel like the price point is just not right for the quality. still wishing koto could somehow pick up DMmd and do a set of one coins (unlikely, i know). their previous N+C one coins turned out really well.

    3. @iced_wine: I wish I could be as rational as you are and not order it when I thought it wasn’t worth it orz;;; I can only hope I won’t be too disappointed when I see the actual figures. Yeah, Kotobukiya had years of experience doing the chibi figures after all. I was really surprised they were left out this time :(
