Hi and welcome to another new preorder post, enough figure orders piled up and so I already can present you part 9 ^_^. Running out of space or not, I like collecting figures and without this hobby I would probably be a less happy person than I am now. Nevertheless I will sell a few of my older figures and other related stuff like figmas and Nendoroids over the next few month to prevent the box storage from bursting and to clear a little bit more shelf space XD.
Hello Kitty to Issho – Vocaloid – Nekomura Iroha
This is not the little sister of Megaman, Nekomura Iroha is an advanced Vocaloid synthesizer, but I never heard of her before, even though there are a few song of her on youtube. She is made by Griffon Enterprise and will have a height of 17,5 cm. The release is in November of this year.
What first met my eye were the creative design and the very cute appearance of this figure. I really like the tight, red shinobi styled dress, the speaker gloves and the shiny helmet. Nekomura has a nice petite body and her cute face with the friendly big mouth are also quite enchanting.
Aizawa Nao – Comic Aun 2008 Cover Illustration
Here we have Aizawa Nao from Orchid Seed, she is scaled 1/7 and her release date is this November as well. This figure was announced earlier this year, but I admit that she didn’t convince me with the early promo pictures of her, the lighting is pretty bad, but some days ago I saw a picture of this figure as a final sample on Orchid Seeds blog. From what I’ve seen there, I decided to place my order for her. I love her pretty face with the bright and piercing eyes and the red brownish hair. Her pose is quite interesting and I like the fancy Halloween style outfit a lot. She will great next to my other 1/7 scaled figures Sonikoand Menace. As to be expected from an Orchid Seed figure there are 2 castoff options, I prefer the one without cape, but with bra.
Soniko Bondage version “Candy Pink”
This figure is also from Orchid Seed and scaled 1/7, her release date is in January 2012.
I already have the black color version of this figure and I’m not the person who buys the “same” figure twice, but of course for my beloved Soniko I make an exception :D. This new color version features a nice combination of baby blue, white and pink. In private I also hope the new version will have more prominent blush marks than my other one with the black outfit. Maybe I’ll sell the version I like less later, but for once I’m planning to display both of them together.
Choco*Ochi, Super Sonico Collection x Mota
Concealed behind this strange title is a set of three different chibi figures of Soniko, they are produced by Orchid Seed and will have a size of 8 cm. This set will be released in February 2012 and contains a casual dressed Soniko with guitar, a naked apron Soniko and a Soniko cosplaying as Al Azif. You can exchange some parts of them like the face for example.
So far Good Smile Company made nice figures from the popular Bakemonogatari franchise.
Aside from their Hachikuji Mayoi, I was partially interested in all of them, but there always was a small part inside of me who made me pass in the end, sorry Kanbaru and Hanekawa. But I instantly fell for their Oshino Shinobu, she is scaled 1/8 and will be release in March 2012.
This Shinobu figure is sculpted after the illustration of the BluRay cover. The base looks very creative with the donuts and the parts that belong to the other characters from this anime.
Shinobu herself looks very cute, with the beautiful red eyes and the soggy donut in her mouth, she also has this lovely light dress and the helmet is also a very cool item, it can be taken off btw.
I will probably order the Black Hanekawa figure from ALTER, but so far I couldn’t bring myself to place another order. I also would like to order Naoe Kanetsugu, Ichijou Ayane and Astraea.
I don’t trust Kaitendo enough to pay so much for Ayane and Astraea will probably go on sale.
And like always my updated Preorder Roadmap from November till March.
