Most online figure shops carry them! Thanks for the links everybody! Hurrah~ go grab them at your favourite stores!
The two new figures will be based on design below by current Nitro+Chiral illustrator Yamada Uirou 山田外朗. Previously released figures were 1/10 scale… These boys will be bigger at 1/8 so that they can put in more detail, I think. Woohoo~ more bishonen figures to look forward to!

Last update 16 July 2011: Awesome news for Togainu no Chi figure collectors! New scaled figures of Shiki and Akira announced! XD
Nitro+Chiral had a sneak peak for the fans on their live recorded program broadcasted on 22 July 2011 (before wonderfest! lol) I grabbed some shots from the video for the part on these two PVCs.
If you want to watch the video, the boys appear around 18th minute. At 15th minute, you get to see the new Chiral Gakuen one-coin chibis being worked on and painted :)
