Wonder Festival (WonFes) 2011 Summer was held on July 24th. I’ve compiled a bunch of pictures from various sources of figures based on eroge, VNs and RPGs. There were quite a few of these (both professional and doujin) in between the vast array of Madoka figures. I’ve also added a few non-game ones that I were particularly interested in at the end, where the links are also located.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica‘s Madoka nendoroid & Kyubey soft figure
Wonder Festival (WonFes) 2011 Winter was held on February 6th. I’ve put together a collection of pictures from the event from various sources (links at the end). Lots of game-based figures this time around.
Madoka Magica‘s Madoka nendoroid
Another month, another nendoroid. This time I bring you Amano Touko, the Bungaku Shoujo (Literature Girl). This will be the first time I’m covering a new release as she just came out on the end of October. I’m thankful for Hobby Search’s 50% shipping promotion, which allowed me to save money while purchasing her.
As for some background information, this character comes from a series of light novels. For those interested they can learn more about the character through the animated OVAs, movies, and manga available. Although I had no knowledge of the character when buying her, I found myself attracted to the braided twintails. Man I really can’t get enough of twintails can I?
I’m back for another round of figure reviews. This time I’ll be focusing on a nendoroid that had already been released a few months ago. However, I’ve only recently acquired it since I had to order from the second round of shipments.
Although I was planning on doing the Bakemonogatari Petit/Puchi Nendoroid set, I thought that photographing all 9 petit nendoroids while practicing my photographing technique would have been a bit too much. So Hirasawa Yui of K-ON! will be joining us today with a few other familiar faces to aid in the review. I was pretty delighted to see how cute she ended up being.
Guess who’s not stranded in Rokkenjima anymore? Well… until episode 7 gets translated. Anyway since I started collecting again, I’ve decided to post small reviews of my monthly shipments.
Figmas and nendoroids vary in quality and design sometimes so I thought it would be good to cover any noteworthy details in anything I encounter. I don’t really collect figmas, therefore the primary focus will be nendoroids mainly. But just for this special case, I’m going to also write about both the nendoroid and figma version of Black Rock Shooter.
Wonder Festival (WonFes) 2010 Winter was held on February 7th. There were significantly less eroge figures this time around, which was a bit disappointing. There was an overabundance of K-ON! and Black Rock Shooter figures, and there’s way too many nendoroids. Just like last time, I’ve only included those that interested me. Additional links are provided at the bottom of the post.
Good Smile Company – Inaba Yui (Flyable Heart)
Hi everyone it’s been awhile! In my last post, I showed some prototype Azunyan pictures, but now with Comiket 77 out, a completed version was unveiled. Now with the whole band finished up and colored, I can see my wallet flying out. Why is it so tempting to collect a nendoroid band? >_< Now I’m awaiting reservations for Azu-nyan.
Kotobukiya’s latest figure is the umbrio version of Alfin from DS RPG Shining Force Feather, which came out in February this year. The character art from the game is by Ito Noizi, of UnisonShift fame, and the resemblance shows through in the figure. The estimated release date of this 1/8 scale figure (190mm tall) is in March. Price is 8190 yen. I really like the facial features and hair. There sure are a lot of roses, although I think it’s a little excessive, and I would’ve preferred the dress to be a bit different. However, overall it’s a good figure.
Dream Party (Doripa) Tokyo 2009 Fall took place on October 25th at Tokyo Big Sight. A similar event will be held in Osaka on November 15th. Almost all major eroge companies took part, so almost 3/4 of the event was age restricted ^^;; Anyways, I’ve compiled some pictures from the event. Links are available at the end of the post if you wish to see more. Enjoy!
Liquid Stone recently started up their Mameshiki series for figures. This line of figures are high quality PVC which are chibified (1:2.5 proportion). Just like figmas, you can move them around so you can pose them anyway you like. The first two figures are Kirisame Marisa and Hakurei Reimu from Touhou. Release date will be in Spring 2010. Price isn’t known yet, but preorders start up on AmiAmi tomorrow. I really love the proportion; it makes them look so cute! The poses can be quite dynamic and the balancing is well done. It’s Liquid Stone’s first foray into making sd figma-style figures, but I think this is quite successful.
