Chara Hobby 2008 (Part I)

Chara Hobby 2008

Here is my coverage for this year Chara Hobby 2008 event. This mark the last of the August hobby event rush. Since there are too many photos, I have to seperate this coverage to 3 parts – figures (which is this one), mecha and others.

Before I go further,
This coverage is brought to you by DannyChoo and AkihabaraNews. They also have coverage of their own as well so do check them out. Tokyo Hunter also have his coverage posted.

I did not manage to get my new layout ready yet for this post but will soon. During the transition, there might be some layout quirks here and there. All photos and the rest are in my flickr account as well.

  1. who’s this lil pretty loli:
    Chara Hobby 2008

  2. Who is this girl, do you know? Otherwise, yeah, most of the figures we knew about, or been announced, like Bounty Hunter Yoko. I will probably get her.

  3. @Panther: She is Subaru [スバル], a captured Blades from Beat Blades Haruka [超昂閃忍 ハルカ]. Found her on the VOLKS booth, probably one of the unannounced Moekore [モエコレ] PLUS figures.

  4. whoa! awesome pictures and ladies!!
    can’t wait to see the mecha!!!

  6. Subaru of course! No wonder she looked familiar and lovely, then again I never played the eroge and only saw one picture of her. VOLKS better not disappoint. They are generally not trustworthy.

  7. Thank you for all the pictures ! Alter Yokos are so hot ! And Kallen in bunny … so much nice figures !

  8. nice. i went for the samba carnival instead on sat… went home all wet… something came up on sunday so i totally missed the event.. >< thanks for the coverage!

  9. @Panther: Hm, I never got anything else other then a Five Star Stories resin kit which I haven’t even opened yet (>_<) from VOLKS. They do sometimes sculpt really cool stuff like their new Gurren Lagann.

    @SbebiWan: Yeah she’s the most badass figure in the show. I totally didn’t expect that kind of detail in a PVC.

    @k: I didn’t manage to make it for the samba event, thanks for your coverage too hehe ^^.

    @TinyRedMan: Sorry (>_<) your comment got gobbled up by Askimet spam box. Well, it is from a eroge game so ^^. I read from Tokyo Hunter that she is from Beat Blades Haruka as well, I couldn’t find anything on her on the official page though.

    She’s from Dai Ban Chou isn’t she?

    And about the event… ahhh~ so many figures I’ll be pre-ordering in the future, it’s not even funny. T_T

  11. @Deathy: Oh yeah you’re right, thanks. Found her, She is Kunagi Tenrou 「天楼 久那妓 -てんろう くなぎ-」.

    More info on VOLKS figures here,

    Too bad most of the stuff here are limited event sales. Most of their figurines are resin kits, so it’s not that bad I missed them.

  12. Wow Aaron… nice work here. Nice pictures you have here… The Yoko looks cool.

  13. VOLKS is mainly about the resin, so I am not surprised. But damn.

  14. @Xenohawk: Thanks for the confirmation. And too bad (for me) that these items are all limited. T_T

  17. Who’s the maker/company for the unfinished figure after KosMos?

  18. @Ayu: It’s from Alter if I am not mistaken. 🙂

  19. Thank you! I’ve been searching for the maker xD I can’t wait till it’s released!
