As you can see from the banner above, Kokuten Tae, as of this writing, has been re-issued and is available to pre-order once more. Don't hang around, as of today (7th July 2017) there is plenty of stock but she will probably sell out fast. Click the banner to take a look at our latest article covering the re-release and we'll show you where you can pre-order.
So Much Controversy
I loved watching the shit storm that went down with this figure, it was incredible. There are a couple of sites that are great to watch for people's reactions. This figure inspired some interesting responses from people and it was very entertaining to watch. The general consensus seemed to range from "Oh My God!! What the hell??", to "I guess it's not so bad", to "Wow, I actually kind of want this", right up to "OMG where can I find it, it's out of stock everywhere??". Tae Kokuten has definitely taken the loli crown when it comes to making people run through the whole gamut of emotions. How about my opinion? Hmm well I didn't want to get into it originally because it was far too much fun to just watch. I actually love the figure, Roxie had been watching her since the prototype was shown off and pre-ordered her the day she went up for order.
We received her the other day and she is absolutely adorable. I don't believe there is anything particularly sexual about the figure. We have a mountain of ero figures and I don't consider it as part of that collection. We have a bathing girls collection and she goes with that, none of the figures are particularly sexualised. I have always found it strange when people attempt to apply sexual connontations to bathing situations. The figure is as innocent as your own mind. If you see something sexual there, that's entirely down to your own perception. I can respect that but I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Do I think Orchid Seed are maybe attempting to target a market with less innocent persuasions? Perhaps, but, honestly, I don't think your everyday deviant spends his or her time purchasing loli figures as a means to feed their lust. I am pretty sure they engage in a much more sinister way of life.
Anyway, all of that aside. We'll be bringing you a review of the original version of the figure so keep a look out for that. In the meantime, if you missed it, as I am sure plenty of you did, we have a new version. This time, our little loli has a slightly darker skin tone and strawberry blonde hair. I love this version too, it's hard not to want a few of these adorable figures. She is pretty tiny but the bath scene really brings the figure to life and adds a whole lot of size to the display. She takes up a ton of room when you display her how she is intended to be displayed. I suggest you take a look around at some user images of this figure. Some people have placed doll clothes onto her and it looks friggin' cute as all hell so that's an option for anyone that wants the figure but would prefer to display her clothed. I can't say enough about the quality of the figure, Orchid Seed have done an amazing job. She is really high quality, by far our best Orchid Seed figure and one of our best figures all around. Tae Kokuten is out in November. You may want to grab her fast as she sold out immensely quick first time around. People love this figure so don't sit on your hands waiting.
