Today a miracle occured and I've spotted a piece of Lupin merchandise in my country. This is truly unbelievable. On a big auction site, like eBay, I've found an awesome male T-shirt with Jigen. Here it is http://allegro.pl/lupin-czarna-koszulka-emo-punk-skate-oldschool-m-i1244899184.html I bought it right away, I just couldn't resist even if I'm a girl and quite a pip-squeak and I'm sure I'm going to drown in that but at least I'll use it at home. It costs around 18 $, postage included. It's size M but there's size L too. The T-shirt is new and there're 7 more.

I will wait for the T-shirt to come to check the quality but if there's someone who would be interested in getting it, I could help a little. Allegro is a Polish site, a trusted one, but they don't ship outside the country. So, I could get the T-shirt and then send it to whoever wants it. The second option is to write to the guy who sells it and ask if they ship outside but I'm not sure if he speaks English so I could write an email to him. Just give me a poke if there's a need ;D

There's also this nice Lupin hoodie but it's XXL so it's waaaaaay too huge XD http://allegro.pl/lupin-z-kapturem-emo-skate-nowosc-roz-xxl-i1240888429.html

(WTF emo-shop XD how can Lupin be emo? These guys don't know a thing!)

...

"Mystery of the Mine Fuziko - That Lupin don't know!"

They both seem to be character file type material; a rough translation of the table of contents for the Fujiko book reveals:
  • ...thorough understanding of the figures a mysterious woman... History and three sizes, including full analysis of the career before meeting with Lupin
  • Fujiko seen through the eyes of Lupin and Jigen
  • Something about sexy lingerie and "underwear game"
  • Fujiko agony... Scenes of her being tickled, tortured, etc.
  • Something about Norika Fujiwara being a potential Fujiko if a live-action film came out
  • Lupin's philosophy of love and women
  • Interview with Monkey Punch


The Zenigata table of contents is more banal:
  • The old (first) series (seems like an overview of the episodes he is in)
  • The new (second) series (again, likely an overview of the episodes)
  • Part 3 (third series overview)
  • Article (no help there)


The history of Fujiko before meeting Lupin is intriguing.  Wonder how official the material is considered...

Hmm, so it's like to buying a pig in a sack with these books I think...

Hmmm. I'm awfully damn tempted to buy that Fujiko book and get someone (Jolly Goat if she'd be willing to) to translate it.

I've bought all Lupin III related figures released this year, but these latest ones are just too cool not to mention.
After so many of plain standing poses, we got these:

Starter pair of Banpresto's Lupin III Stylish Figure -line. Released last month.
Not bad finds for 10€ each. Lupin has awesome metallic paintjob on his jacket and Fujiko has shiny vinyl looking skirt.
I wish I could leave them hanging around on my PS3, but they are bit on the heavy side (especially Lupin) so I better move them somewhere else :I

EDIT: Now these two reside with my digital clock in front of TV, myosh. And I got shipping confirmation for Revoltech's Lupin, so exciting.

The curved PS3 surface can't be much good for stability, either...

Those are some pretty rad figures.

Those sitting figures look awesome. =)
I love Fujiko's little pose and Lupin's smirk of "hmph". ;D

Caved and ordered these babies. Full colour images, coloured opening chapters and unreleased Lupin III manga. Oh and Lupin III Jr. because it was brand new sealed and only 99 cents. xD

Here's an updated picture of my Lupin and gang shelf (see earlier in thread for previous pic). It's getting a bit crowded. This is a 3' by 1' size shelf. I've got to start a new one and move some of these figures into that. My big wish is to get another showpiece type item to center the second display around. I'm thinking of the big DX model of Lupin driving his car from the first series.



 These guys fled to a nearby bookshelf for breathing room.
