I normally write these posts, that focus on the recently available figures on the market like every 3 months. After part 31 in early June, the figure manufacturers decide to launch an impressive number of quite desireable preorder items near the end of this month.
Shortly before my remaining preorder number was close to drop below 4 I could not resist anymore. For starters I placed my order for the new Sora and ALTER’s Nozomi.
Yosuga no Sora – Kasugano Sora – Bunny Style
I preordered this one, because she looks amazing, I already was sure that bunny style Sora would look nice with some paint on her as her notice her during the previous Wonderfestival, but ordering the figure wasn’t really planned. Her face is beautiful and the seductive direction is a nice extra, too. I also like the overall presentation, the attracive and nicely dressed figure sitting on this high stool while her extra long twintails are hanging down. I’m not really interested in these kinds o bunny costumes, but Sora looks so nice in one. Good that it is a December release, so it might become a christmas present I might not need to pay by myself.
manufacturer: ALTER – scale: 1/7 – release: December 2016
Love Live! School Idol Festival – Toujou Nozomi
It took a little longer for me to finally order this fabulous Idol. At first I was a little upset that Nozomi only had one open eye, she looked awesome for sure, but it slightly bothered me. Nevertheless I never lost interest, her release was initionally sheduled for June and my June was already a nightmare, I had to pass. “fortunately” Nozomi’s release was changed to July, my birthday month and fortunately she was still available. While ALTER’s Love Live! School Idol Festival cost a fortune, all girls have amazingly detailed outfits and look wonderful.
manufacturer: ALTER – scale: 1/7 – release: July 2016
Original Character – Magic Bullets – Pin-Up Girl
It’s no secret that I love curvy swimsuit figures, I like to buy those and having them around. The figure named Pin-Up Girl is art based on an illustration by Sasaoka Gungu, this explains the unique but beautiful style of her facial features. She also is what I would call a dynamic bikini figure, she has this elaborately articulated pose. I admit she also is of course sexy with the detailed buxom body and attractive tan lining. Unfortunately, the “bikini figure of my dreams” is sheduled for the busy month October. After some calculations I ordered her now.
manufacturer: Kalmia Project – scale: 1/6 – release: October 2016
I haven’t ordered these figures, but at least I find them overly interesting and like to list them. Tell me which one you like or which not, or which figure you would like to see in a review
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Kouwan Seiki – Wonderful Hobby Selection
Kouwan Seiki or Harbour Princess is one of the cuter Abyssal characters in Kancolle, she is not evil, she just wants a hug :D. Max Factory created a nice figure based on her design, I really think she is adorable and the body is dynamit. The figure has the WHS tag, figures tagged with WHS (Wonderful Hobby Selection) are always very expensive, not really because they are much nicer than normal figures. I bought a WHS figure recently, I was very exited since I really liked the concept, mine unfortunately arrived slightly damaged, fortunately the GSC support was very understanding and helped me very fast. But after that experience I’m not willing to spend 20,000 Yen + for a figure again, maybe if I would buy figures less regulary.
manufacturer: Max Factory – scale: 1/8 – release: April 2017
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Prinz Eugen
“einen schönen Tag” Ahh the Germans! Haha, all right a cheaper but not less attractive Kancolle figures is Prinz Eugen, the petite and sporty looking heavy cruiser girl. Prinz Eugen is a very cute character, I really like her hair and the pretty face. Her machine parts are nicely compact and create a slender appearance. But I hope there is no swastika somewhere.
manufacturer: GSC – scale: 1/8 – release: January 2017
Oshiete! Galko-chan – Galko-chan
It’s Galko! I hope you are all familiar with the short anime, big girl Galko might dress like a broad, but she is a good girl and has a heart of gold. Of course I like her buxom appearance and additional volume. Max Factory even went the extra mile and made her 1/6 scale size. In the casual school uniform Galko looks very nice, well her skirt is short and fickle, you might see something while the figure climbs the stairs of her base.
manufacturer: Max Factory – scale: 1/6 – release: January 2017
Kyonyuu Fantasy Gaiden – Isis Petrovna Elenskaya
One first glimpse you’ll that this pretty woman named Isis is based on a hentai game, long hair, big boobs and a nice big butt XD The boobs might be bit much, but I like her face and the detailed front hair and won’t deny a purchase by default.
That might be too much info for my innocent readers ^^ The breast armor can be taken off seperately and also the top part of the suit can be removed to expose her nude balcony. She will have inverted nipples underneath, which often looks very pretty in “anime related media” I will have to see additional pictures before making a fix decision about ordering or not.
manufacturer: Lechery – scale: 1/6 – release: September 2016
Upcoming figures I’m interested in
Love Live! School Idol Festival – Sonoda Umi
I will repeat myself ALTER’s Love Live! School Idol Festival are extremely alluring, just look at this amazing Yukata outfit, even Umi turns into a moeblob Lv 9000 in this announced figure prototype. The “drill instructor” Umi was turned into a beautifuly, cuddly cute Idol, she’s just perfect in my eyes. With her, Nozomi and Nico I would have three of these cuties, yay!
manufacturer: ALTER – scale: 1/7 – release: …
This sums up the “emergency” New Preorder Post. Lets wait for the next pretty figure Avalanche. Was there anything interesting for you in the last few weeks? Or is there something you are looking forward to? Let me know in the comments, see you ^^.
Yes, bunny Sora is just so darn attractive, that slim profile, those long legs!. I’m super happy I can live precariously through you! Also super glad you ordered Nozomi after all, I regret not doing so myself but when there is no money, there is no money.
It took me like all of 2 seconds to order Prinz Eugen, every time I look at hear Einen schönen Tag! Who can say to such a ridiculously moe voice. Ditto for Galko as well, complete opposite in my usual taste but I think she might start swaying me. 😀 I suspect Umi will be the same, I would never have thought I would insta-order a figure of her. Can’t wait!
Haha yes, I opened AmiAmi in the morning and was seeing this totally stunning Sora (´ ▽｀).。ｏ♡
Next to a great pose, outfit and whatever, this Sora has the most detailed face ever.
Yeah, me can’t live without a sparkling Bozomi figure in my house, ALTER should put her in a bikini as well.
Well done, it’s very, very sweet how she says this german greeting 😀
Big girl Galko is so good, it’s marvellous that she was adapted as big figure.
As you mentioned her anime I was a bit surprised, also when I gave it a try I was like “Omg, she looks totally ecchi!” at first.
Her characterdesign manages to make her look super curvy without being in the fat category, which is really pretty ♡＾▽＾♡.
After a few episodes Galko also showed her other qualities, she is such a good girl, friendly, ssmart and open minded.
The designs of Love Live idol outfits are always amazing, but what’s even more amazing is how ALTER is able to replicate them so perfectly. Those Nozomi/Umi figures look awesome.
Yeah it’s very nice how the manufacturer adapted these illustrations. ALTER always creates top notch figures, but the Love Live girls look especially great with their sparkling outfits and dynamic poses. Umi is so cute, too （‐＾▽＾‐）♡
I’m still hoping someone makes a Ta-class figure. I kinda like the Abyssals – given my interest in World War II naval history, some part of me thinks that they’re really the good guys – and a lot of them have some pretty interesting character designs (some of which seemed to be swiped from Black Rock Shooter, but then, that series got a bunch of figures). Prinz Eugen is pretty cute, and she ended her naval career in the US Navy, as I recall, so maybe I might pick her up, too, if she’s still available (I’ve kinda not kept up too well with preorders). I still say I’m not a huge fan of bunny costumes, but I’m gonna get Sora and a bunch of FREEing figures, so it’s getting harder and harder for me to say that with a straight face.
Haha, I guess you can’t make them the good guys anymore.
Kancolle twisted my opinion on WWII a bit, I can’t help myself but rooting for cute japanese ships XD
Still, I share your opinion, that the Abyssals look lovely, too. In my eyes the Harbour Princess is really beautiful lol how much I loathe the Wonderful Hobby selection tag on her ^w^
Oh haha, it’s always funny to hear about the captured and re-used ships.
Come on, you love girls in bunnysuits, at least a part of you ;p
I can’t believe WonFes is more than a month ago and I still haven’t read posts on the new figures. How time really flies!
From your post here though I find Kouwan Seiki more interesting primarily because her make up has this haunting feel to it that I really like in artworks lol.
Goodness I was reading other title but commented on this preorder post! >///<
Haha no problem ^^
Yeah, sometimes you can’t keep up with all things.
Kouwan Seiki is still a favorite of mine, for a “monster” she is really cute.
She also is sculpted in a very attractive way (⁄ ⁄^⁄ᗨ⁄^⁄ ⁄).
Unfortunately it’s such an expensive figure (▰︶︹︺▰)
