Any Air Gear merchandise?

Post by thedigitalsin » Mon Feb 20, 2006 8:17 pm

I recently started reading Air Gear and am totally into the series now (expect a fansite to pop up soon). Anyway, I was wondering if there's any merchandise available aside from the Pinky Street Ringo figure and the 2006 calendar.

Not sure about the availability of this one though. I think I remember reading that it was a limited run, but not sure.

Oh my. Was that actually released, or has that not happened yet?

EDIT: Scratch that. Mr. Prophet answered that question in the TenTen Figure thread. Guess I know what I'm using my bonus money for!

What did you find out about it? I am kind of curious about it as well.

I found one on ebay, but it was colored different (the pink hair looked radioactive), but the auction was taken down before I could bid :(
Apart from that there was one (very badly done on yahoo japan auctions).

ATM there are only garage kits for assembly and painting available, but I'm still waiting for the prepainted thing. If the quaality will match the photos then I'm getting like 5 of them :D

There is a Pinky Agito coming soon. Then there is this Simca.

And I hope that with the series getting its run in April, we'll see some PVC's as well. 8)

Agito was coming with volume 14 right? I have to get my fingers on that. :>

Also, the Simca garagekit that's out there should most probably be re-released as a prepainted figurine when the anime comes out.

I'd definitely be interested in a pre-painted figurine of Simca.

I apologize for the side-topic, but where do you all buy your manga/figures/goods?

I usually go to http://www.aclimatesolution.com/manga/index.html or www.nippon-export.com. I bought only from these.
There is a Pinky Agito coming soon
I don't like Pinky's at all. Too childish for me. But that Simca/Shimuka (whatever her official name is) figure looks just gorgeous. I've seen one pre-painted somewhere but it cost about 100$+shipping. I'm not that insane (nor that rich) to pay.

Hobby Link Japan www.hlj.com
Hobby Search www.1999.co.jp
Animaxis www.animaxis.com

These are good places to start if you are looking to buy figures and kits from Japan.

There's a lot. Being a shonen manga that appeals to females as well, there's quite a bit. Quite bit more merchandise than for TenTen.

Eg stickers, compact mirror, posters, necklace, jeans accessory, key rings, memo pad, hand towel, pouch, T shirts, jacket, etc.

Most recent releases will be LE volume 13 with Pinky Street figure in March and in June Yujin will release Air Gear gashapon (5 types: Ringo, Simca, Ikki, Sukumizu Kamen and Agito).

There tends to be quite a bit more doujinshi based on Air Gear than TenTen too, and most of it is aimed at females. There an Air Gear only doujinshi event (though I don't know whether that was an one-off event or not).

Actually I've been thinking of making a list of items myself, but have never gotten around to it.

I didn't think they made male pinky's, is this only the second one, or are they made commonly now.

Well, there are a bunch of male chibi figures released, but if you mean specifically Pinky St., then yes, this seems to be the first one.
