Yes, new preorders part 25 and something is probably the right title for this post, there has been not much new to preorder at the end of the year. I expected a few more Kancolle figures from other manufacturers to show up for preorders in December, but they are probably waiting to announce these for the next Wonder Festival which is sheduled for February 2015.
Aside from a few updated or announced figures from MegaHobby Expo Autumn and some more fanservice related figures there hasn’t been happening much in the last few months.
I did order only a few figures one of them on last minute literally, I really plan to preorder less figures in 2015, mainly focusing on the things I really want and making no impulse purchases.
In the last Preorder Post 24 this figure was one of maybe candidates, I decided to get her, unfortunately all shops closed reservations months ago. I got the fix idea to grab one on the day of release and to my surprise it worked, HLJ had a few left. Shortly before release ALTER announced a black color Variant, but I’m on team white. I’m looking forward to have her soon.
manufacturer: ALTER release date: November 2014 scale: 1/7 price: 13.800 Y
Sailor Sapphire Succubus
Another maybe candidate was this hot Succubus based on an artwork of Mogudan. I’m not lying when I say that the biggest appeal point for me is the figures beautiful and lively face. Ok, she also has an attractive, voluptuos body and with being scaled 1/6 she will be a rather big figure. With the short shirt it looks a bit silly, but without it though, she looks really, really sexy. I might try to put a bikini top on her. I can’t wait to get her in summer 2015.
manufacturer: Orchid Seed release date: July 2015 scale: 1/6 price: 12.000 Y
Super Sonico Paisura Bikini ver
You can probably tell by now that I’m into that stuff XD Here is another Super Sonico figure,
it might actually be the last one this time, until something really unique is shown.
I followed the development of her since the very early prototype stage and was quite happy to see her having turned out as promising preorder. What convinced me in the end was this set of promotional pictures, where Sonico blushes a lot, which is no wonder with a bikini that won’t fit at all and reveals her attractive, buxom body. Her pose has something to do with putting on sun lotion, I like how she squeezes her arm between her plump, fairly sized boobs.
The sculptor has a promising history of good looking figures with nicely sculpted bodies, I’m positive that this big scale Sonico figure from Kaitendoh will be really nice as well.
manufacturer: Kaitendoh release date: April 2015 scale: 1/6 price: 12.000 Y
Not really worth to mention, but I really like such petite Nendoroid sized merchandise, when it looks as nice as this. Nozomi is bundled with Dengeki G`s Comic Magazine Vol.15 Issue.
manufacturer: Toy’s Works release date: June 2015 scale: 6,5 cm price: 723 Y
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 like or which not, or would like to see in a review
This category turned out a bit longer I’ve put a number of interesting figures in it.
Toro Toro Otome – Miki Reina – Suntan version
I was really torn between this figure and the previously shown Sonico. I ordered Sonico, but Miki is still a beauty. There is already a non tanned version of this figure, but the darker skin adds a lot to her and makes her look more convincing. Miki has a playful appearance, very nice colors, different display options and her top is castoff able. It was a difficult decision, but I actually hate her shoes to be honest, but I’ll keep her in mind for a possible later purchase ^^
Musashi Kai – Light Armament Version
You can buy this figure in 4 different versions, 2 differ in color, 2 differ in terms of attached weapons. With full armament she looks quite impressive, but the normal version is also very pretty, cheaper and less likely to get damaged when being moved around, that pole is better made of aluminum or steel *lol* Musashi looks good with some muscles and rather big boobs , she also wears an interesting concept of an outfit completed with a ribbon wrapped around her body. If her face would show some more emotion I would have pre-ordered her for sure.
BLAZBLUE ALTER MEMORY – Mu-12
This figure looks really cool with led powered base and prominent buttocks, the sculptor did a good job on the skin parts and the rest obviously. On the downside her face is hard to see, from different angles it’s still hard to see, which will be a reason for me not to pre-order her.
Eiyuu*Senki GOLD – Beethoven
That is the most innocent character design from the Eiyuu*Senki game and I really like that, Beethoven is a cute, short girl with an unique hairstyle and headphones. The slanted eyes give a nice thoughtful touch and she has a podium like base.
Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Bride – Houzouin Inshun
The Samurai Bride designs are really pretty and showcase the advanced craftsmanship and possibilities of todays figure production. With Inshun we see one character of the new cast. She has beautiful eyes and looks really good.
Nendoroid – GOD EATER 2: Nana Kazuki
This is a really cute Nendoroid, I like when look they different than the average schoolgirl anime character. She has many items and looks like fun. Can I please have a scale figure?
Blade Arcus from Shining – Won Pairon
Another Toni Taka related design from Alphamax, this time without genitals on display XD
The static yet stoic figure knows to appeal with pretty colors a pretty face and flowing hair.
As the castle figure was still an unpainted prototype I liked her a lot more. I imagined her colors to turn out more striking. While she doesn’t look bad at all,I feel a little vary about her. She would actually be my type of figure and her diorama like base is lovely. I might like Hiimejijou a lot better in person, but with my mixed impressions I can’t make a pre-order.
Karada ni Kiite – Eriko
Who put the nearly nude figure here, me? I guess I liked her feminine curves a lot and the interesting design of her face. Haha like on Miki Reina from further above I hate the shoes again, what is Daiki doing with all the ugly shoes! Hmmm, it seems that the figures are just randomly divided beteen Daiki Kougyou and Dragon Toy (both companies are related).I had the impression that Dragon Toy would be in charge of the raunchy stuff, apparently not ;D
Upcoming figures I’m interested in
Sekai Seifuku ~ Bouryaku no Zvezda – Plamya-sama
I’m watching Bouryaku no Zvezda at the moment and also enjoy it a lot, Plamya caught my attention previously to that, since the character design is already really cool and I also like her tough girl personality. To me it appears that the prototype was improved a bit, the picture is around 2 weeks old
I-19- Kantai Collection
In the Game it’s really difficult to win this ship by grinding level 1-5 even after 200 times she never appeared before my eyes. Max Factory is still working on their I-19 submarine girl I hope to see her up for preorders soon
Leviathan – Maou Mokushiroku
Ater seeing this figures cute face in color, I’m really curious about what kind of character Leviathan actually is. She looks cute and sexy in her beach clothes, gladly Orchid Seed will work on her with Tanaka Masanori they got a really talented sculptor for her. In a magazine scan, she was shown with a silly pose, but it must be a different figure, don’t you think?
As I learned that Black Heart is going to be made as a 1/7 scaled figure, I was stunned, this figure will look great in a bigger scale and with such a dynamic pose. I’m very positive about ordering her next year, she looks so damn good.
manufacturer: ALTER release date: 2015 scale: 1/7
Love Live! School Idol Festival – Minami Kotori
ALTER keeps up the trend of making more figures in scale 1/7. Here the Love Live core member Kotori. I don’t know what they did to make this Kotori prototype look so precious, she’s nearly sparkling with craftsmanship, cuteness and visual appeal. They also made Maki.
Push!! Cover Girl
On their blog Orchid Seed mentioned that the prototype for this figure has been completed and that updates should follow soon. I’m really happy that this figures gets more attention now. I wished for her since I saw her at Summer Wonder Festival 2012. compared to the shown First version of her prototype the body looks more detailed now, at body and legs.
Sansei Muramasa – Bunny version
Sansei received quite some attention from Wing in particular, they already made a figure of her in the regular outfit which looks rather good with the serious face. Recently they were showing this through their social channels. I already like the concept art, keep it up Wing.
manufacturer: Wing release date: no data scale: no data
So, that turned out longer than I untented at first ^^ Was there anything figure related you’ve ordered recently? Or something you would actually like to get in next year?
