Welcome to my impressions from the Wonderfestival of winter 2013 which took place on the 10th Feburary 213, I’ll will make this a two part post, because I liked way too many figures this time. In this part 1 I will take a look at the presented figures of the bigger manufacturers that caught my interest. Not everything is a must have for me, but I like all listed figures.
Ah this turned out so long, sorry
Isshiki Akane – Vividred Operation
sculptor: Kiking - release date: no data – scale: no data
Akane is quite the archetype of an cheerful and athletic loli character, she has short pigtails and a happy face. Despite her petite appearance Akane has a very attractive butt *yay!* The pose is quite nice with a “driving” happy Akane in her light summer uniform sitting on her detailed jet bike. Im really glad that they decided against the 1st stage magical girl uniforms in Vividred Operation, I don’t like this parade uniform style very much. I actually had preffered her with the red bloomers, but the school uniform isn’t too bad. Im looking forward to see her painted.
Araragi Tsukihi – Nisemonogatari
sculptor: Hiroshi - release date: no data – scale: 1/8
WelI, I really couldn’t understand the price of Karen, but I think Tsukihi would justify a similar price, this figure of her is just wow, these traditional outfit is beautiful. And then this climbing frame with so many pipes that comes as her base. I would love to make pictures of Tsukihi.
Sorceress – Dragon Nest
sculptor: Usagi- release date: no data – scale: 1/8
Here is already my newly announced favorite figure of this Wonfes 2013, I love the design with the wide face and the pink hair. Also her stylish yet revealing outfit is very appealing to me.
Even though I never played or heard from that Game of her I totally want to get this Figure.
Kuroyukihime – Accel World
sculptor: Bakusatsu shooter- release date: no data – scale: 1/8
Kotobukiya already made a very nice figure of Kuroyukihime with piggy Haru, but here is another figure of her which presents this character in a more shy and vulnerable way. I recently completed Accel World and was quite enchanted by the female characterdesign, Kuroyukihime in her butterfly dress is exceptional pretty. Im curious about the color textures that GSC will use for this figure, maybe some transparency on the wings. I bet she’ll look delicious with color.
GOOD SMILE Racing – Hatsune Miku – Racing 2012
sculptor: Sanzigen- release date: 2013 – scale: 1/8
The racing 2012 version will be made in 2013, this backwarding manufacturing is kind of irritating. I actually thought that GSC pushed the new racing Miku to FREEing, but I was wrong and they are making their own apparently, the design is very stylish and Miku’s face has a cartoonish look. On overall comparison this looks much better and detailed than the FREEing figure, but I would say that their Miku face is still better though.
Hmmm who is that? Anyway it’s a nice looking figure of a beautiful idol. The face looks quite charming and her outfit with the frilly skirt and boots is gorgeus. In case the paintjob won’t dissapoint I would like to buy Rin with her microphone stand. Aww these frills.
Haha took you ages for that, huh? It really feels distant that I watched this anime, but that shouldn’t bother us. Surprisingly the busty alien Ichika will be a 1/7 scaled figure. Her sitting pose creates a nice atmosphere. Aside from being bouncy I like her lovey dovey face expression a lot, it’s really cute how her hand i playing with her hair. I actually wanted a figure of her close to something like in this picture, but this will never happen for obvious reasons.
Saber Type Moon 10th Anniversary Edition by Alter
sculptor: Hashimoto Ryou - release date: July 2013 – scale: 1/7
A happy Saber in an enchanting, pearl white flower like dress with a huge ribbon at her back. I’ve rarely seen a figure of Saber like that, she’s beautiful. I love the design and her super pretty face. She is a standard run and her retail price is set at 9200 Yen, so around 7xxx Yen at the big shops… maybe this is another nice Saber figure for me. Oh she can be ordered already!
Tanigawa Kanna – Ano Natsu de Matteru
sculptor: Tanaka Touji - release date: no data – scale: 1/8
ALTER isn’t any faster with figures from that show XD They made Ichika’s rival as a 1/8 scaled figure in a slightly alluring pose with both hands behind her back. In grey there isn’t much to say about this figue in her plain summer school uniform, maybe her face will bring this figure to life.
It’s Melty from the sweet yet shllow anime Shining Hearts, will we ever get a second season? Well, Melty sitting on an strawberry ice is a quite cute sight, it’s looks nice and creative. Her extravagant loli witch outfit looks quite pretty and attractive. I like the gigantic hat, the hat does come off and I think the figure looks cuter like this since her pointy ears come more into focus. Her monster friend Sorbet will also be included.
Sheryl Nome – Macross Frontier
sculptor: Chieri - release date: 2013 – scale: 1/7
This a very detailed and alluring looking figure from Max Factory, you wouldn’t think that is a PVC on first sight. Aside from all the details of her outfit and the base, Sheryl with her female curves is just stunning in this pose, The aroused and submissive expression in her face makes her even hotter. Im not a fan of her character, but her appeal can’t be denied.
Yeah a figure of Nyaruko san from Max Factory, I like the naughty alien girl. As in most cases MF makes figures in the non everyday wear outfits from the animes. I don’t like the naked apron style in particular, but she looks good in everything. Ah yes she seems to very much undressed in this figure adaption, but she has a crowbar. Knowing that she will have the Max Factory quality Im super exited about this naughty figure.
Miyuki Mana - Se Kirara
sculptor: Nakayaman- release date: no data – scale: 1/7
With the later Max Factory figures from Se Kirara, I found myself more drawn to them. I really like their Kawamura Yuu figure and now tghey presented the probably last character of this line up. I like this one very much alread, she has a cute clumsy pose and nice bookworm glasses, this might be an instant preorder.
Jack The Ripper – Fate/Apocrypha
sculptor: Patton - release date: no data – scale: 1/8
I love Phat Company for quickly adapting the Garage Kits I like into figures, first Hibari and now Jack The Ripper. I like this sculpt a lot and this cool suit of her. The wide face and the huge eyes give her an extraterrestial appearance overall, but she’s cute killer alien. Her body is petite but hips and thighs have more female curves.
Senran Kagura turned out quite different than I expected, the manga is far better, but the curvy and cute characterdesign is something I like a lot. This Katsuragi is also based on a garage kit. Aside from her pervy voice, I like Katsuragi and her look of a buxom blonde. She has big boobs and a nice outfit with striped panties. The purchase is as good as set in stone, I think Katsuragi will look great next to Hibari.
Okita Sawa – TariTari – Phat Company
sculptor: no data - release date: no data – scale: 1/8
Oh look it’s pretty Sawa from the Tari Tari opening, Phat really knows what I like. It’s nice to see that there will be a Tari Tari figure of my favorite character in the outfit I like the most on her.
Caster EXTRA is a fox magician in a visual key dress. I like how they adapted the rather static posed illustration into something dynamic and playful. The design of Caster is very cute and appealing in this verion, I like the huge sleeves and her killer cleavage corsage.
Hasegawa Kobato – Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT
sculptor: no data - release date: 2013 – scale: no data
Actually the figure is an adaption of the DVD cover from the first season from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, but who cares about this minor detail, when seeing a cute goth loli with bicolored. I love this anime, but so far I only bought Maria from Max Factory. This Kobato is dressed in her special everyday wear clothes, I really like this girlydress with the slightly inappropriate details. I also like the cute pose and that this classy chair was added to the figure.
The first figure of Maou was announced rather quickly, since the show just started a few weeks ago. I like Maou’s design and kind personality a lot, the red and black colors theme of her is also very appealing. As you can see she is really busty, I like figures with big bouncy boobs, but Maou is already a bit on the borderline side, well in comparison with her voluminous skirt it appears at least a little less huge, so that it is ok for me. Im looking forward to see the colored prototype.
If someone had asked me aboiut I had wished for a different Horizon in the middle of nowhere character as figure, but Honda is also ok, she has her cool battle suit and compared to other character relatively normal sized boobs. Close up her face expression is also quite attractive.
Another Idol@master Beach figure that caught my interest, even though I’ve never bought any of them. The wild and well trained Hibiki comes with her her hamster friend and shorts.
ALTER already announced a nice figure of Mistral, but for whatever reason I can’t deny that I somehow prefer this one alreadya little bit more. The pose here is a little more playful overall.
Original Character – Kantoku
sculptor: no data - release date: no data – scale: no data
Ah yes, I like the Kantoku arstyle a lot, it’s really nice how he draws his bishoujo characters. Here we have a little kitchen accident of a cute redhead. She comes with many kitchen equipment. This might be a very cute figure when she’s painted, Im looking forward to it.
Komatsu Eiji also has a dwaing style that I really like a lot, this girl here is presented in her falling apart school uniform. She has a large amount of hair and a cute face. I like the mixed design elements of her a lot and will probably order her when she will be available earlier or later.
Muhahaha… hahaha… KYAHHHHHHHHHH!!!… 2013! … I can order her this year Hell Yeah!
This Sonico figure looks really gorgeous, no complaints from me here at all, her outfit looks great and I like how her sculpting and painting has turned out now, especially her cute face. I might get an heartattack, when this holy Sonico grail goes up for preorders, haha hopefully not.
Snow – Blassreiter
sculptor: Clumsy Rei - release date: no data – scale: 1/7
Oh it’s been many years since this illustration was shown on Orchid Seed’s booth and then a few days ago I couldn’t believe my eyes. Someone is actually working on Snow!!! It seems like they changed a few details, as figure she now looks seductive and cool. I hadn’t mind the very aroused look from the illustration, but Im still very interested. Snow is sitting on her bike and looks great in her racing suit, the black and red colortheme might really rock in the final product.
Maybe in 1 or 2 years.
