Hi there, I added 4 new items to my Preorder List and so it is time to take a look at the recent preorders, further below I will also show you other recently announced figures I’m partially interested in. Under Preorder Roadmap you can see all of my preordered figures for 2014.
The prices are retail prices, without the discount most figure related shops have to offer.
Kongou – Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~
For gods sake I still wasn’t able to get in this stupid online game, even with all the “tricks”. Just how difficult can it be ｡ﾟ(TヮT)ﾟ｡ !!? Even without being able to play the game, I love the visual style of Kantei Collection. Combining a cute girl with a classic battleship from WWII makes you nearly forget about the tragedy that befall this and many other ships. Back to the admirals darling, Kongou looks simply gorgeous, considering that she is only scaled 1/8 this figure is super detailed, the few damage effects on her and the clothes give her some sexy appeal .
Max Factory also makes three of the cute submarine girls, I -19, I – 168 and I – 58
manufacturer: Max Factory release date: September 2014 scale: 1/8 price: 13.704 Y
Nitro Super Sonic – Sonico – Beach Queens
As Sonico fan, I just couldn’t ignore this new Beach Queen, Wave sculpted her nicely with all of her convincing physical attributes, just look at her thighs, she’s pure dynamite. I also like the little red crab which will be included .
manufacturer: Wave release date: September 2014 scale: 1/10 price: 6.000 Y
Ikaros – Sora no Otoshimono Final
Recently I have finished the manga from Sora no Otoshimono, it ended pretty unspectacular, you should expect nothing from a harem setting in the end. The authors just don’t have the guts to let the main character pick one girl. One of Sora no Otoshimono’ good part is the appealing character design and likeability of it’s characters. Kotobukiya decided to make a figure of Ikaros under their 4 Leaves lable. She looks lovely from head to toe, I just love her puppy eyes. From the backside she also convinces with her detailed braids.
manufacturer: Kotobukiya release date: August 2014 scale: 1/6 price: 12.000 Y
Kashiwazaki Sena – Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT
I ordered this figure as soon as she was available, sure she is huge, but I’m sure that I will like this curvy girl, the sculpting is so well done. Also her face is convincing, Gift did a very good job at recreating the face of Sena with all of it’s details, while other companies failed at it so far.
manufacturer: Gift release date: June 2014 scale: 1/4 price: 13.000 Y
Finally a release date
Kirigaya Suguha – Sword Art Online
manufacturer: ALTER release date: 1th May 2014 scale: 1/8 price: 7.800 Y
I’ve been waiting ages for Suguha to be released, at first she was scheduled for November 2013, but now the day of her release is close. The figure has a nice natural sitting pose where she is placed on a cute veranda, I guess she will be a cute companion for outdoor shootings.
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
Cecilia Alcott – IS: Infinite Stratos 2 – Bunny ver.
manufacturer: Freeing release date: October 2014 scale: 1/4 price: 18.333 Y
As it was already announced at last Wonfes, FREEing is going to turn all IS girls except Houki into large scale figures. I always checked out FREEing’s big figures at Tentacle Armada and thought that they are pretty. Nevertheless, when looking at Cecilia I’m kinda impressed how faithful she is to her anime appearance with blush and a lively expression, she looks quite gorgeus. Let’s hope that there will be no cutbacks on the details in the final product.
Original Character – Kondo Yume
manufacturer: Native release date: September 2014 scale: 1/8 price: 10.185 Y
It is mean that Native mixed this adorable cute character design with so much lewdness, ok the illustration was already like that. Yume is really cute, she is petite, pretty and yeah she even has glasses. I like her type quite a bit, there are a number different ways to display her.
These battery powered things in her bag give me the creeps and actually are superfluous for me and I will let them stay in the box. Aside from that, she comes with a mattress and pillows. I’m probably going to order her, even when it takes all of my courage to do so. You can order her from the 25th April 2014 at your proxy of choice or directly from Native.
Taimanin Asagi – Igawa Asagi
manufacturer: Milestone release date: September 2014 scale: 1/8 price: 9.000 Y
Oh I nearly forgot to add Asagi, this is the second figure that I’ve seen of this character. I like the design of her. Her origin is quite hard stuff, I’m not talking about fights, I took a look in one part, it was not really my thing. Anyway I’m happy that she is made modest in a cool pose
Sonsaku Hakufu – Ikki Tousen
manufacturer: Dragon Toy release date: August 2014 scale: 1/6 price: 14.500 Y
I have a week spot for the latest Ikki Toussen figures from Daiki/Dragon Toy. The latter one made this super pretty Hakufu figure in damaged clothes, I think she would look good next to my Kan’u , both have a similar style and very good body sculpting. This hole in her shirt will be a bit difficult to cover, I assume, that I can worry about that later ;D
Souryuu Asuka Langley – Evangelion Shin Gekijouban: Q – Jersey ver.
manufacturer: ALTER release date: September 2014 scale: 1/7 price: 10.800 Y
Thats probably the most fashionable Asuka figure to date, the hat alone is awesome, ALTER included a different posing option to recreate two different, appealing poses. Overall she looks very good and has a cool expression, I would consider to add her to my collection.
Mikasa Ackerman – Shingeki no Kyojin
manufacturer: GSC release date: October 2014 scale: 1/8 price: 12778 Y
Ackermann looks really good as figure, she has cool clothes is super detailed and a without a doubt pretty face. Well, even though I like this story Mikasa comes from a lot, strangely I don’t feel much for anyone of the characters.
Kinomoto Sakura – Card Captor Sakura – Nendoroid
manufacturer: GSC release date: September 2014 scale: Nendoroid price: 4.444 Y
Better late than never a Nendoroid of Sakura appears, I just watched the whole Cardcaptor anime like two years ago, it’s the perfect example of a very nicely concluded anime. You could order her from the 25th April 2014 , I probably will.
Mankanshoku Mako – Kill la Kill – Nendoroid
manufacturer: GSC release date: August 2014 scale: Nendoroid price: 3.889 Y
This is a real comedy Nendoroid, I like her funny expressions a lot, she will also have special bendable arms. The special edition comes with a beaten up face, which is just creepy X<.
Urusei Yatsura – Lum Invader – ARTFX J
manufacturer: Kotobukiya release date: September 2014 scale: 1/7 price: 9.000 Y
Upcoming figures I’m interested in
Kousaka Honoka – Love Live! School Idol Project
manufacturer: GSC scale: 1/8
Love Live is such an entertaining show, there are my animes related to the Idol culture, but Love Live is special. Sparkling animations and character designs, mixed with a number of different, but likeable personalities. GSC chose Honoka as figure to be made, she looks great so far. Actually I like the “big”girl, but the one that steals my heart is the little devil, Nico.
Koshimizu Sachiko – iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls
manufacturer: Phat Company scale: 1/8
This is so good, an enchanting yandere type of Idol, I love her cute demonic expression, it’s a rarely used theme, her pose is also unique, I hope the final figure looks as shiny as this.
Tachibana Makoto – Free! ALTAiR
manufacturer: ALTER scale: 1/8
Well, here we have a sexy boy, oh my I’m watching too many sport anime lately. I never watched Free! for it’s lack of female characters, well I have heard that the female swim coach was pretty. Makoto is not really the bishounen type, but I think he looks pretty cool in this pose and outfit. Preorders haven’t opened so far.
Giant Sena and Cecilia are both on my radar–but they’re both pretty spendy. I actually have Giant Sena bookmarked and I go back and forth between preordering her. I kind of want to “wait and see” with Cecilia, though. I love Bunny girls, though.
I think it is ok to wait until after release, many of this giant figures, also from Gift get a bigger discount, but there is no guarantee for it.
On the other hand you will sleep better when you reserved your figure early. Cecilia looks great in every outfit, the detailed face appears like an improvement on Freeings part. In general 1/4 statues are known for having less detailed faces. When they make Tatenashi as appealing I might get a problem.
Still a shame that there will be no Houki.
I recently read a book on the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, and it was really hard not to think about the Kantai Collection characters whenever I saw the ship names Kongo and Tenryu. I really like the Max Factory figure (and it’s hilarious Movic did the exact same figure and put it up on the exact same day), but 13k yen is nuts for a 1/8 scale figure, especially one that’s sitting down. Given how so many MF figures get price cuts after release, I think I’m going to hold off and wait. The same goes for Ikaros; I like the figure but for that kind of money I could’ve gotten the 1/4 scale bunnygirl figure that came out a while back. Yume is adorable and so is Asagi, though in a different way. It’s great to see Asagi get another figure, especially since I didn’t buy the Lilith one and I kinda regret not doing so, but I think this one looks better. Hopefully Ingrid gets a figure, too. I like the Asuka figure, it’s a little spendy and it’s, well, another Asuka figure, and I’ve got a bunch already, but it’s nice to see her standing up, at least, and the booty-centric pose is attractive, too. The best thing, though, is that they’re not using the test suit.
Ah I see, I recently(yesterday) got in the Game, you start with really unpopular ships, at least they also have cute artwork.
I think I’ll need a list to say who is who. I like Kongo also a lot, I would drop most of my preorders for her, luckily I don’t have to.
The price is high, not really justified by a 1/8 scale figure with a deformed ship behind her, it really seems as if GSC needs money.
So you say that I paid to much when preordering these figures ^^? sure it’s strange that I instantly preordered Ikaros, when I can still get her later for probably far less. There must be something why I like preordering so much XD I still think that Kongo will be a big hit, since she looks great and the whole Kancolle is an incredible big hit.
Yume is pretty nice, Native really knows what looks appealing, their petite figures are always lovely.
I also know this older figure of Asagi, the aftermarket prices are quite demanding. I also think that the new one is great, the previous works of the sculptor aren’t breathtaking but solid, it would be great when she turns out as the promo shots imply. I like that her figures present her as self conscious “space ninja”.
One bad thing though is that both, Yume and Asagi will most likely be released in the same month, which is already full in my case.
Well, this Asuka looks different enough to justify a purchase, I like this dress.
haha I like her test suit, but I have an odd relationship with NGE based figures anyway . Considering how much I like the anime and concept,
I should have more than just one figure.
Du hast immer noch einen guten Geschmack. Die Kancolle Figuren sind alle sehr teuer aber ich kann mich kaum zurückhalten. Gonna catch ’em all! Nach deinem Post nun habe ich mich auch endlich überwunden und auch Native’s neues Mädel vorbestellt. Achja, und Suguha ist auch wieder im Preorder. Hatte sie kurze Zeit raus aber irgendwie will ich sie ja doch. x) Dieser Artikel von dir ist schuld!
Wollen wir mal hoffen das es auch so bleibt ;p Es wird irgendwie immer schwieriger sich für eine Figur zu entscheiden.
Ich bin sehr an den Kancolle Charakterdesigns interessiert, bis wilen gefallen mir die Pläne von Max Factory am besten, finde die U-Boot Mädchen super ^^
Vorigen Samstag hab ich es geschafft dem Spiel beizutreten, es macht richtig Spaß und habe auch schon ein par Lieblinge unter den weniger bekannten “Schiffen”.
Ehrlich? Ich konnte mich noch nicht wirklich dazu entscheiden, den Monat kommt einfach zu viel tolles raus wahhhhhhh!
Ich wollte sie auch scon achtkantig rauswerfen, aber Suguha ist doch sehr hübsch und heute sollte es ja eigentlich so weit sein.
Haha war das so überzeugend?
Hmm, I have my eye on Kongou but hot damn, that is expensive for what you get. I might wait and see how Shimakaze sells, if it looks like she bargain bins, then I might try to get Kongou the same way.
I’ve always wanted a pirate Asuka figure and she looks cool in that outfit and the hat! But battling out with Kongou, I think Kongou would win.
Kongou is nice, even though she doesn’t smile. The prices are not nice when looking at most GSC related companies. I’m not sure about the bargain bin, the game is really good so far and I expect a high demand for these figures. Haha at least I couldn’t bring myself to be patient at all, good that I don’t like the Shimakaze figures from Amakuni and GSC ^^. I have no Kongou in my fleet and I want to say, that there are a lot of other great designs among the less popular characters. It could be expensive if my favorite fleet girls would be turned into figures.
This is a great looking Asuka figure. I would get her, but my space is always limited, I should buy storage room somewhere X<. Asuka is the less expensive deal, I actually made my decision for Kongou, but Asuka has a better pose and I love girls with hat.
As I was scrolling down the list I sure notice a trend with most of these figures… oh you perv!
That Kongo looks nice, I really like it, if I was part of the Kancolle mania I would have already ordered here without a second thought.
I wanna see pictures of that Suguha, I like that figure it looks really nice. I own one Gift 1/4th figure, their swimsuit loli Nanoha, since she is a young girl the figure itself is not all that bigger than a regular 1/6th scaled figure.
However, that Cecilia bunny? Oh god is she huge, I want it, I want it badly, 16K or so badly? Not sure yet but I have always wanted a FREEing bunny.
I’m also interested in that Asuka, I’m not an Eva fan but Asuka was the one thing I genuinely liked about it, I’ll need to think about it.
A guy figure, a half naked guy figure…never! XP
Whaaaat? That’s not true, nowadays you can get much raunchier figures with detailed genitals and all.
Haha yeah, I will have a hard time to show some resistance against Kancolle related figures, esecially Max Factory releases.
It’s good that Im not really interested in Shimakaze, at least not in the two already announced figures of her.
Suguha will be worth the wait, actually I would love a slightly sexed up figure of her, but that won’t happen.
I know, I have loli Fate, well maybe Sena will be too big for me, the girl must look gigantic.
As I saw the painted lady Alcott I was like “woahh!”, the face looks amazing , really good from FREEing.
Get her! Im curious to see Tatenashi.
Haha “never” he says, I also prefer women, but I think Makoto looks really cool like this.
I could put him next to my 1/8 scaled or create hilariously indecent pictures with them.
wait maybe he’s the reason for the dropped appeal of this post…
Kondo Yume so no panties is a Yes now :P, didn’t expect the last one ahaha but hope he can lure many new female collectors 😀
Haha , so you also prefer it this way? Im glad to see this alternative display option.
Lol, I bet he does ;p
That is some list you have here!
You didnt order the shimakaze one? It kinda your type of figure no? ^^
Anyway good Kongou is there!
Also Love Live! omg finally but! no they need to do a Maki-chan figure first!
I understand Honoka is the main character of the series but she is the least popular well thats from a poll I show during an event in Akihabara. :/
Btw where do you fit all these figures! do you have enough room? XD
I always wait until there is enough to write about haha.
No, for some reason I don’t really want one of her figures, her design looks nice, but the figures so far didn’t convince me.
since I started to play Kancolle, I noticed that there are also other nice characters aside from the popular ones.
But I want the busty submarine Max Factory announced already. Haha I could not resist her, I’m really looking forward to get her in September ;D Have you played the game a bit?
Oh Maki chan, I see ^^ I just hope they won’t stop after Honoka, there are so many cute characters, like my waifu Niko I find her so adorable, Nozomi, Hanayo and also Rin.
Haha maybe some people did a prank with the stickers XD
Well, it became difficult to display all of them, I have a second room and also the cellar to put a few back in the boxes.
I think I have to sell a batch soon, I want to collect a few more years ^^
