You can finally hold, kiss, touch and caress…
their figure/statue selves now! Yeah… definitely great news for fans…
Hatake Kakashi (Naruto Shippuden)
First Naruto 1/8 sized figure released by MegaHouse if I’m not wrong. I don’t follow Naruto but I’ve always found Kakashi very attractive. My exposure to him is mainly from Naruto’s BL doujinshi ^^;; I didn’t even know his full name until today. Real Kakashi fans, please forgive me lol~
Frankly, I find the figure’s pose quite boring… Although like his Megahouse GEM predecessors, this figure has options such as two different heads and two pairs of arms posed differently (with a book/dagger) you can exchange with, I appreciate a more dramatic pose. What do you think?
Their previous male figures releases include characters from Gintama series, such as Sakata Gintoki, Hijikata Toshiro and Okita Sogo. I don’t own any of them. What do you think of their quality?

Next up, how about a fantasy bishonen to whet your appetite.
Yuri Lowell (Tales of Vesperia)
Second-in-line in Alter’s new Altair bishonen figures label is Yuri Lowell from Tales of Vesperia. I already took notice of him when he was first revealed at Wonderfest Summer 2010… but I didn’t know much about the series except that it is a based on an RPG game. He happens to be voiced by Toriumi Kousuke ^^
He looks great and has very beautiful details. Lovely face! You really can do more with posing when your characters have long hair. :)
His figure comes with a chibi version of him as well. The base looks good too.
After owning my first Alter-Altair figure Natsume Takashi, I believe Yuri will be a quality product as well. However, he doesn’t have the same impact on me as Natsume’s PVC :) so I’ll not be ordering him straight away like I did with Natsume.

Is Death Note making a come back with this gorgeous looking Yagami Light?
Yagami Light (Death Note)
A lot more expensive because it is a cold-cast resin figure. Limited production probably? I think this pose looks dramatic and quite awesome. His face looks pretty close to the manga. Pity about the price although it is a reasonable range for this type of statue.
More info about what cold-cast resin is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resin_casting and http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/25951
The painting looks detailed.

How about a figure of an older Light with a pose like this too? ^^
(Notice the unbuttoned and half-zipped pants? Lol~)
Anyway, I found this pic on the net and I’m not sure of where it came from. Any ideas? :O
