Official Figures


  1. Before 2002, it gets a little confusing and I have no official information. However, since they celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2008, they likely began in 1998; this means they are probably the same series as VIP Venus in Paradise (though these cards are branded with ColleCarA, rather than Axia). Watanabe Akio's artbooks show illustrations from VIP '98, VIP '99 and VIP FINAL, so it would also make sense considering the artist works on Venus Idol Project. The dates of release would also match up. The 'Official Book's also look very similar, with Suruga-ya listing them under the same company name. I can't find information on this either, but it's enough for me to believe it's of the same source. Any information would be appreciated.
  2. VIP Final was released in 2001, before VIP Memorial and after 2000 Winter, but I am unsure when '99 Adult was released; the official book groups the images with '99 Winter, and the illustrator list is on the same official page, so they may have been released at the same time.
  3. I couldn't find the other three original illustrations for the trading figures on E-Shuushuu.
  • There are translation errors of artist names on the V.I.P Final cards. Some have the name order swapped over for the English, some do not. Some are also missing spaces in the romanised names, etc. Some just translate using a different method to ours. The artist names on here are as they are on E-Shuushuu when applicable, having been translated from the lists on the V.I.P website.
