Mirai header

As some of you might know I bought myself a Mirai SmartDoll some months ago, in September 2014. I unintentionally was holding back this post a little for different reasons, this post holds not much artistic value and is not supposed to be a review. In this post I feature the pictures I’ve taken with Mirai so far and talk a bit about my experiences with her.

A few years ago I wouldn’t have imagined to buy something like this, when I started collecting figures, I didn’t feel too excited about so called fashion dolls from Japan, as I once saw them, they seemed like a plaything for rich Otaku. I actually labeled them as creepy, I partially still do that today and emo dolls honestly scare me to death, but to each their own.

Over the years I developed a less critical opinion towards Dollfies, since you can take stunning pictures with them and make them look beautiful with new clothes and exchanging body parts. I already played with the idea of getting a Dollfie Dynamite, but I decided against it.

Onna no Ko header

The previous Wonderfestival post took most of my energy, but here is another figure review. She was recently released precisely on the 28th January 2015 and it’s actually my first figure from manufacturer Wing, a rather new manufacturer with business connections to GSC.

I already found a few figures from Wing very appealing, but I was most convinced by
Event Staff Onna no Ko, she has no real name since she’s actually an original character illlustration from Ishikei, he does very elaborate, but also rather ecchi works of pretty girls. This profile illustration was used as a mascot of the Comiket two or three years ago.

This is the first Wonderfestival event of 2015, since it’s cold outside it is the winter version.

On the 8th of February 2015, the Wonder Festival [winter] opened it’s doors. It’s the most popular figure fair were the big and small figure manufacturers and Garage Kit makers assemble to present their latest works and upcoming products. This time there is a good balance of painted prototypes, unpainted prototypes and early stage announcements.

In this Post I’ve covered everything I found appealing, I added all the available Informations I could get and wrote my evaluation. Keep in mind that all these pictures are of prototype samples and the actual product may look better. It’s a longer Post with over 50 figures,

so have fun… in case you want a little reminder of the previous Wonderfestival check part #1 and part #2

Shigure Kai Ni – Kantei Collection

Last time I was very delighted that Shigure was announced to be turned into a figure in her Kai Ni version, now she’s already painted and looks all kinds of awesome and pretty.

Haha I found an old review Draft in my post folder, since some time I planned to publish it, but today is the day where I will show you an edited and updated version of this review.

The figure in this review is Alice which was made by Alpha x Omega, I thought that the first review from years ago was no good and didn’t want to leave it like that and trashed it.

Mammon header

This review is NSFW as it contains nudity and stimulating content

The 7 Deadly Sins have been a successful campaign for Hobby Japan, Orchid Seed and Amakuni. Now all figures of the first 1/8 scaled line up except Satan have been released, yet Orchid Seed and Amakuni are also working on more figures the majority in 1/7 scale.

I like this franchise, cute demon girls always have a place in my heart. Still I managed to only buy 2 figures from the 7 Sins first lineup. Leviathan which we reviewed in 2013 and Mammon.

Mammon - The Seven Deadly Sins - Orchid Seed - 001 (1)

Mammon is probably my most mature figure,  not in years but in appearance. Her figure was released in the end of December 2014, I had to pick her up between the holidays. Mammon was sculpted by Ishiyama Satoshi, the best person when it comes to such kinds of characters.
