It has been around 4 months since my last New Preorders post, so here is a new one.
Thanks to all the delays from last year, 2014 is already rather crowded with preordered figures which will without question influence this years upcoming preorders in an inconvenient way.
In the meantime I ordered a few fancy plastic things nevertheless 6 new figures actually.
Cerberus – Rage of Bahamut
manufacturer: Max Factory release date: June 2014 scale: 1/7
price: 11.300 Y
Yes, I like demon girls a lot and for some reason this list is full of them
When thinking about figures from Rage of Bahamut Olivia from Kotobukiya comes to mind, since I don’t like her design that much and also decided that I won’t buy a Kotobukiya figure again for once (Im not really serious here as you will see later) I’m happy that Max Factory brought their painted prototype and preorders for Cerberus were opened recently.
I also played the smartphone card game “Rage of Bahamut” this girl is based on, it features a number of other pretty demon girls, but the performance is kind of bad on my device.
Cerberus is a pretty girl with a hell of a cute face, twintails and beast ears, she’s rather petite, not too tall with meaty thighs and a fancy, skin revealing outfit. The gold and gloss look spectacular on her soft skin. The doggy gloves/hands are kinda funny, but give her something cheerful, without basis I think she will be delivered with optional hands to satisfy more customers.
Sorceress – Dragon Nest
manufacturer: GSC release date: May scale: 1/8
price: 6.870 Y
Finally GSC changed this from a China only figure to something every collector could get their hands on. I was more than happy to be able to place my reservation for this cool looking figure.
Mammon – The Seven Deadly Sins
manufacturer: Orchid Seed release date: September scale: 1/8
price: 12.840 Y
This is going to be my first Sins figure from Orchid Seed, it should be better qualitywise, than Amakuni. Leviathan is a lovely figure, but the bad cast off still leaves a little bad aftertaste.
Im not planning to buy the complete set of the 7 deadly sins, but the figures I like the most are of interest to me I might get Belphegor and Beelzebub next. Mammon is an adult woman and actually a mother. She is without a doubt a very curvy girl with big boobs and a butt of similar size. I like her overall design, the voluptuous body, the outfit with all it’s details and the pose where she carries a basket full of demon food. Her face is beautiful and the drill hair as well.
Sonico – Super Sonico The Animation – Figma – Swimsuit version
manufacturer: Max Factory release date: March scale: figma
price: 10.700 Y
Do you follow the Sonico anime? I watch it and I like the slow paced slice of life concept, it is close to the setting of Sonicomi, but without cameraman san. I better stay away from any MAL discussion, since it would only annoy me, some complained that there was too much fanservice and some that there is not enough of it. The show is very cute and has a kind setting, I’m glad that they made no idiot out of Sonico, she is in college and actually a dilligent student.
The figma comes with the first volume of the Soniani Blu Ray, it was sold out within minutes, lucky me didn’t wait too long. She looks adorable and I imagine it to be a fun figma to take along in my summer vacation. I love how curvy she is and how she is holding a swim ring. It appears to be one of the newer figma frames, her hip joints are nicely covered.
Sonico – Nitro Super Sonic – Santa, Swimsuit version
manufacturer: ALTER release date: April or Later scale: 1/7
price: 8.050 Y
Why have I ordered this again? It’s a Sonico bikini figure with christmas decorations from ALTER.
The figure wears a friendly smile on her face and is sculpted in a sweet gravure idol pose and shows a really pretty cleavage. Don’t expect her to be castoffable, it’s already uncommon to see such a hottie made by ALTER
Mushanokouji Iwai – Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge – BEACH QUEEN
manufacturer: Wave release date: December 2012 scale: 1/10
price: 3.670 Y
I know it will be a really tiny, small scale figure, but she’s SOOO CUUUTE! The first time I wanted to preorder her she was sold out, but this week she was in stock again. I have no idea who she is but her face and the mass of hair hnnng!
Erunoe – Lil’Fairy – Chiisana Otetsudai-san
manufacturer: Azone release date: summer scale: 1/12
price: 8.050 Yen
This cute little devil was supposed to stay in the “Upcoming figures I’m interested in” category, but I had the tab with her open for two days and ordered her as this post was as good as finished. It’s a tiny little doll with cheerful eyes, I’m kind of glad that she was restocked, the first batch was sold out immediately. She has two maid workmates and I’m partially interested to add this one with the white hair and black uniform.
Upcoming figures I’m interested in
I haven’t ordered these figures, but at least I find them overly interesting and like to list them.
Feel free to tell my which one you would suggest me to get or like to see in a review 😉
Amazon – Excellent Model – Dragon’s Crown
manufacturer: MegaHouse release date: July scale: 1/7
Amazon is a strong girl with a set of muscles, still she looks still very feminine in my eyes.
What I like the most is her nice hair and the beautiful face, these blue eyes are so expressive.
An 1/7 scale is rather unusual for this manufacturer, but it is a nice change, to make something bigger. I find it great how Megahouse applied the shading on the very detailed sculpted body.
Two things that bother me, is that her top is too low, where are her nipples supposed to be? and her thighs still look a bit extreme.
Super Sonico – Mouse version
manufacturer: Wing release date: April scale: 1/7
Haha I hope Sonico doesn’t like cheese, that for sure took long until preorders finally opened.
With her tongue out Sonico has a light naughty expression, a little more assertiveness suits her.
The mouse eared figure comes with a huge cheese themed base, The girl looks charming and the focus on her butt is quite nice. I think I like this figure enough to justify a purchase
Mei Sagara – Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!
manufacturer: FREEing release date: March scale: 1/8
This girl has a lot of cute megane (glasses) appeal, but somehow she forgot most of her clothes.
Leafa – Fairy Dance – Sword Art Online
manufacturer: Kotobukiya release date: April scale: 1/8
That looks like a great Leafa figure, deep green friendly eyes, pointy ears and a really nice rack.
She’s really pretty and the base fits very well to her, like a small diorama.
I always preferred the other girls in Sword Art Online instead of Asuna, in particular Leafa / Suguha but I found it silly that people started to dislike Asuna as she was trapped in a golden cage. The figure looks lovely in the promo shots, unfortunately this figure was made by the same sculptor as Kobato, like you all know, I didn’t really enjoy, after all. I better play safe this time and try to get her after release in case I like the final product.
Makoto Harada – Yamato Girls Collection – Yamato 2199
manufacturer: Alpha x Omega release date: March scale: 1/8
Have you ever watched the old Uchuu Senkan Yamato? It’s a combination of the old Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica. I did and it was awesome, it sucked that I had to watch the last episode in english, to be fair, the japanese dub also was far from good at first, bu that improved quickly. Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199 is a more modern version with fantastic animations. Makoto Harada is the top nurse on the ship and assists the doctor with sake.
As big fan of the show I would like to have her. I love the cute design of her, the sweet face, the fashionable pink suit and the dynamic pose, she has exchangle faces and arms.
The Muse of Range Murata – JC.COM
manufacturer: ALTER release date: May or Later scale: 1/6
I’d never believe this lovely GK figure would be adapted as PVC figure, but no it even is from ALTER and of a large scale. The girl is based on the art of Range Murata, it’s a cute and attractive design with a scarf, boots and gloves and cute underwear. A chair is also part of this great figure.
Billy the Kid – Eiyuu*Senki GOLD
manufacturer: FREEing release date: May scale: 1/8
A wild, slender girl with a cowboy – bikini dress and a watergun, I find her design totally appealing, she’s proud and has a dominant appearance despite from being half naked.
Anything here caught your attention?
I’m a bit lost here, march, april and may will be full of cool figures, any suggestions what I should get? If I didn’t have brought so many figure preorders from 2013 in the new year, I could order more freely without stressing myself.
