Life-sized Lupin figures, courtesy of @Ikari_Gendo and @aicnanime.
For roughly $6,300 in USD! Awesome! XD
If I had a place for it, this would totally be on my wishlist.
I'd probably never ever get it due to the prohibiting price tag, but it looks very very nice. ^^

Those are cool and all, but the detracting thing for me is that, despite the larger size, the detail is not any greater than a figure 5 inches high; which is a shame.

Something that tall should have twice as much detail, and Lupin's head should not be as flat as that.

Maybe I'm nitpicking, but since I don't have the money to blow on it, it makes it easier to think about the pros and cons. So even if I did have the money, though, probably wouldn't get them cause they don't look as nice as they ought to.

I'd much rather own that Red Jacket Lupin they had standing next to a shelf in that Lupin store they had open a couple years back. Which was also roughly life-size.

Also, just grabbed another "World's Most Wanted" manga. This time it's Vol. 1

Might not be able to get more than 2 others because they are phasing out faster than ever now. Just about all the original mangas are completely gone, at least in affordable prices.

"DAMN!"
Well that's what I said when I was bidding on a lot of 2 Lupin the 3rd LP records, and a poster of...what looked like the entire opening to the Green Jacket series laid out frame by frame all across the paper. Really odd lookin' thing. But the lot was going for $1.50 when it started. And then after 10 people bid, it ended up selling for over $39. So nobody got an uber cheap deal, like I was hoping for.

But good thing though is, I managed to bid on the same TV Show Vol. 1 LP for a decent price, just after that other auction closed. So I'm a happy camper, cause I finally got a genuine Lupin record in my collection. Should be here half way through June.



And of course, here is my Re-creation of this fine cover.

Wow, a real Lupin LP! That's awesome!

I have a box set called "Lupin the Remaster", which has CDs of the original three soundtracks plus a full record sleeve size reproduction of all their covers nd liner notes... But I still wouldn't mind owning an original LP, too!

There's a neat centerfold in that album of the whole gang in their second series designs... it's a picture I really like.

Anyway, congratulations!!

Lupin the Merch!
« Reply #188 on: June 01, 2012, 02:15:40 pm »
Hi, just visited for a quick post on magazines and goods:

MAGAZINES
Issued today, a men's trend magazine called "Pen" has a 70-page feature of Lupin III.
All Japanese enthusiastic fans (at least those around me) gave a very good review on this feature; very well-detailed, precise, and good columns much better than recent 2 books obviously compiled in hurry. Unfortunately, it's in Japanese but if you're interested, you can order from Amazon.jp:
Pen Web: http://www.pen-online.jp/feature/3276/
Amazon.jp: http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/switch-language/product/B0082D3WH0/ref=dp_change_lang?ie=UTF8&language=en_JP

Another magazine feture issued this month is "Mistery Magazine", fucusing on comparing Leblanc's Arsene Lupin novels and Lupin III. I haven't bought it yet, but will put a link just in case.
Hayakawa Publishng Web: http://www.hayakawa-online.co.jp/product/books/711207.html
Amazon.jp: http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%83%9F%E3%82%B9%E3%83%86%E3%83%AA%E3%83%9E%E3%82%AC%E3%82%B8%E3%83%B3-2012%E5%B9%B4-07%E6%9C%88%E5%8F%B7-%E9%9B%91%E8%AA%8C/dp/B0081T6HEU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1338571192&sr=8-2

Also announced by official Lupin 40th twitter account (https://twitter.com/#!/40thLupin3) , this month's "Newtype" (6/08 on sale) features a discussion with Miyuki Sawashiro, Sayo Yamamoto and Mari Okada on "A Woman Named Fujiko Mine".
Amazon.jp: http://www.amazon.co.jp/Newtype-%E3%83%8B%E3%83%A5%E3%83%BC%E3%82%BF%E3%82%A4%E3%83%97-2012%E5%B9%B4-07%E6%9C%88%E5%8F%B7-%E9%9B%91%E8%AA%8C/dp/B00865NP8K/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1338571287&sr=8-3

Tinned Coffee and Smart Phone
You may have already known a tinned coffee brand “ROOTS” is conducting a marketing campaign using Lupin figurines. You get the 1st series mini figurines with non-sugared tins and the 2nd series mini figurines with sugared tins. After collecting 5 coupons attached to the leaflets coming with the tins, you can get 2 types of Fujiko figurines for 3,000 JPY each (non-sugar type and sugared type).

Starting today, a mobile phone maker Kyosera launched a commercial film for their new models featuring Lupin, Jigen and Fujiko.
Models: http://www.kyocera.co.jp/prdct/telecom/consumer/urbanoprogresso/lupin/
Commercial film: http://www.kyocera.co.jp/prdct/telecom/consumer/urbanoprogresso/lupin/tvcm/index.html

That’s all, for now.

P.S. to moderator: If I want to post small news that are not worth creating an independent thread, which thread should be most appropriate? Or could you make a thread like "Miscellaneous"? That'll make me feel easy to post small news directly from Japan some of you may find interesting. :)

Also, I finally have my orange tie, which completes my 3 main outfits for Lupin the 3rd cosplay. Now the only thing I'm missing is a green tie and a blue tie for the alternate versions of Red and Pink, and I might want to try finding the outfit Lupin had in the live-action movie. You know, if I really want to be picky about it. lol
