Monsieur Bome Vol. 16 Repaint

Kaiyodo has started preorders for another Oni Musume figure repaint which will be released under the Monsieur Bome label. Fans of the Bome sculpts may recall that Oni Musume kicked off the series with Vol. 1 where the she-devil wore tiger print skivvies and sported a healthy head of red hair. The repaint of Bome Vol. 1 featured Oni Musume with blue hair...

The original version of Monsieur Bome Vol. 16 features Oni Musume with red hair and yellow tiger print wisps of clothing. The Vol. 16 repaint gives her a light purple do and white tiger print threads. In the sculpt, Oni is on all fours and drops an arm lazily around her weapon of choice. A pair of ivory-ish horns protrude from the top of her head and seemingly match the waves of her hair. When viewed from a head-on stance, Oni Musume reveals a generous amount of cleavage. The kind that's pushed together like a package of Drake's coffee cake.
Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late March 2007 at JPY4500 or US$39 from NCS.
Note: A USA localization is highly likely from Diamond.

General Updates

Aquapict Update
We love our drifting silicone jellyfish but we emptied the tank yesterday. When we originally filled the Aquapict up, we used regular tap water in our rush to check out the show and suffered through bubbles and stuck jellyfish. We're going to refill it with distilled water that's been boiled and then cooled which eliminates the bubble problem along with the fluorine and chlorine from the tap. End result? Possibly healthier jellyfish.
Idolm@ster Limited Edition
Another batch of Idolmaster LE is scheduled to arrive tomorrow and all new orders submitted on Friday of last week will ship upon arrival. Please note that we're unable to accept new orders at this time.
Dreamcast Last Hope Update
The game may be released tomorrow based on an email this morning from Max Scharl of Van Basilico / redspotgames. Place your wagers.
