A Few Words from a Book by Harry Harrison

Featured

β€œWhen girls head for the stars, they are clad in bikinis, or skintight bathing suits made of cellophane or some other flexible and transparent substance. Even when they get out of their space gear they sport bare legs and bared midriffs. So who is it that would like to look at girls with very little clothes on? Why boys of course.”

Paraphrased from a segment of the book MECHANISMO (1978) in which the author, Harry Harrison, discusses the reason for the differences between the space gear worn by girls and boys in the old space opera pulps.

Coloured Kizuna Ai “Nendoroid” Unveiled, Kizuna Ai “Figma” Announced!

Today Wonder Festival 2018 [Winter] took place in Japan and, as Kizuna Ai had promised earlier this week, a coloured version of her reacently announced Nendoroid figure was unveiled. However, there was other big news for Kizuna Ai fans. As I suspected, a figma figure of Kizuna Ai in the works! As you can see from the image above, which I got from the Good Smile Company’s YouTube Channel, Max Factory only had a little cardboard cutout stand-in to show, but I’m already excited! And as if that wasn’t enough, a 1/7th scale figure of Kizuna Ai, by Tokyo Otaku Mode x Stronger, was also announced.

Well, now I know not to nominate Kizuna Ai for the figma figure survey that the Good Smile Company is currently holding, but who should I nominate instead? There’s not much time left to decide… Anyway, that’s all for now. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
