Part 24! It’s been a while since I preordered a figure, but I recently added 3 more lovely figures to my basket, additional I’ve listed a few figures I consider to preorder or not in this post.
I will also talk about a few cool figures that recently showed up, but aren’t up for ordering yet.
September was quite a crazy month, so many delayed items one after another, I had to edit my Preorder Roadmap around 6 times. Now October is a whole mess, but I believe in more delays.
I-168 – Chuuha ver.
Haha, I was impatiently waiting for preordering my Kancolle waifu, she’s among my top favorite characters in the game. Max Factory did a great job with her damaged state and the cute details like inflatable tube and the simple sandals. I – 168 is so sweet with her embarassed expression an her body looks great. It’s nice to see her in a shiny swimsuit and how it adds some contrast.

Taimanin Asagi – Igawa Asagi
I really considered about ordering this attractive Ninja woman back and forth, as she was delayed to October I hit the button. Except Asagi, October was ought to be free of preorders, but it never goes as planned in the figure collectors world. You would actually think that a character from really naughty Hentai game, would get a really naughty figure, but her convincing curves aside she is presented as cool looking action heroine. My additional reasons for ordering are her really lovely face, the purple suit and her very promising promo pictures.

Comic Market – Event Staff Onna no Ko
Wing constantly increased their reputation as figure manufacturer and they became rather lively in announcing new figures. Back then there was this lovely official Comic Market mascot illustration, two Wonderfestivals ago it was announced that Wing would turn it into a figure, as soon as I got the news, I was really happy about that. I have to say that this adaption turned out very well, they captured both, the sex appeal and cuteness of the mascot and she looks gorgeous. Nice hair, a sweet face with glasses, the pose and an odd, but pretty choice of outfit turn her into something really nice. She is also a big scale figure and is partially castoff able.

Asuna – Titania version
I actually thought I could pass on this figure since I wasn’t that convinced by the promotional pictures and Asuna never was a character I cared about at first. In the story Asuna grow on me when she and Kirito took in Yui, the little cyber girl. As first user pictures of the figure appeared after release, I was quite surprised about the very adaption of the character. I’m really not into bondage or other tricks with ropes, but I’m a sucker when it comes to expressive faces and this Asuna has it for sure. Her sorrowful facial expression is beautiful and she even has Elf ears. Under her pure white dress, Max Factory gave this figure quite risky underwear, which is really in need for adjustment and reveals details I never expected from a figure of this company.
To have less pressure with incoming packages, I placed my order at a local dealer, where I realized that 10o,00€ are actually worth a lot of Yen. I paid a little much, but at least I won’t regret not getting her.
A number of people said that they disliked it when Asuna was kept hostage in ALO and also disliked the figure because it reminded them of that certain part, where Asuna was turned into the damsel in distress. Well, the figure is nevertheless beautiful in my eyes, they could have given her clothes a slightly lighter appearance, but we can figure that out when she arrives.

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
Original Character – Zettai Tora – normal version
This figure is a fresh GK adaption from Mouse Unit, now they have a PVC version of her ready for preordering. The girl looks a little bit bored, but she has beautiful hair, glasses and a great looking hat. Don’t ask me for what reason she has a tiger tail. This figure features Raita’s distinctive character design with a prominent sculpted ribcage and prominent nipples. She’s a big figure of a nicely sculpted beach woman with castoff feature, the price appears a little fierce, but buying from overseas is still somewhat cost efficient in the EUR regions.
manufacturer: Mouse Unit release date: January 2015 scale: 1/6 price: 14.800 Y
Grisaia no Kajitsu – Suou Amane
Grisaia no Kajitsu is a visual novel, it’s anime adaption will start to air very soon, while Im not sure how they want to adapt this complex material, Kotobukiya shows us one of the heroines of the game in a happy manner. Her background is rather difficult to explain in few sentences, on first impression Amane is a very kind and likes to take care of others like a mother. She’s not shy about showing her buxom body and seems to be quite carefree about morals in general.
This figure looks promising. the hair and face are close to the game design, I love her eyes. The pose is cute and playful, it’s rather cool that she’s 1/6, will give her a bigger impact as figure.
manufacturer: Kotobukiya release date: February 2015 scale: 1/6 price: 11.000 Y
This figure was announced just ten months ago, I have the feeling that it has been longer.
I noticed her appeal some weeks ago, she looks really pretty in her cream white chinese dress and the fine strands of her hair. The soft bright colors of her are quite enchanting. Sora is obviously a younger character, together with blush and huge ribbons she’s also very cute.
manufacturer: ALTER release date: October 2014 scale: 1/7 price: 13.800 Y
Tamaki Kousaka Miwaku no Twister Game version
This figure is based on a GK which has been around for some time, only in parts though, Orca Toys came around the corner and added this Tamaki Kosaka (another one) to their catalog. The girl looks pretty alluring with her body and facial expressions. I like this creative pose, as well as the idea behind it, playing Twister seems to be more fun with Tamaki. The GK had a prettier bikini color, but Ora Toys actually produced some nice figure, this one turn out nice either.
manufacturer: Orca Toys release date: February 2015 scale: 1/6 price: 13.800 Y
I actually don’t know who this character is, but the short girl with the flowing red hair looks very nice all around. It’s the typical pretty Japanese Game design outfit, some armor, boots and for female characters there is a cute skirt added. The dynamic pose together with the pretty character design makes a nice package.
manufacturer: ALTER release date: December 2014 scale: 1/8 price: 10.800 Y
Upcoming figures I’m interested in
Featured and announced figures that will be made sooner or later.
Kiryuuin Satsuki – Senketsu version
Haha ok, this is honestly not the girl of my dreams (maybe nightmare), but from an artistic perspective this planned GK adaption is simply awesome. I hope GSC will produce the figure without big design changes, to make her more suitable for mainstream, the unique style makes her special and appealing. I also think that Senketsu, the uniform suits her perfectly.
manufacturer: GSC scale: 1/8
Sailor Sapphire Succubus
Hmm, this post turns out to have certain trend, but now I drop da bomb. …Well, there is nothing to sweet talk about, the figure is a daringly posed Succubus. I actually kind of like the design of Orchid Seeds currently in development prototype, while her exaggerated proportions are not what I demand, there is really something charming in her face that I can hardly resist.
manufacturer: Orchid Seed scale: 1/6
Captain Earth finished, time for figures! I already assumed that my beloved anime would get no scale figure at all, so as the news surfaced my heart literally skipped a beat. Embrace Japan will make Moco, the charming and enigmatic villain of the show. She is quite the hot lady, always wearing her eccentric, bold outfit. The alien really enjoys her human avatar and I really like her playfully sexy personality. I would be even happier when someone would make a figure of Akari.
manufacturer: Embrace Japan scale: 1/8
We reached the end of this post, I was happy to be able to place a few orders again and share my thoughts about some new figures. Was there anything that caught your interest?
Maybe you have already ordered something from that list, just tell me in the comment area.
