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 .
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.
