Hi everyone, after some time passed since the last New Preorder post, now it’s part 33. In the meantime I placed 3 more figure orders. I remember the times where I always had like 5 new preorders in every preorder post, but with my stronger focus on Dollfie Dream, the rising costs for figures and limited room I can’t preorder so many figures at once anymore.
Kantai Collection -Kan Colle- Takao Light Armament Ver.
I’m a big Takao fan, she is so alluring and has a friendly voice. Max Factory made a 1/8 scaled figure, she is wearing her beautiful uniform and her lovely curves were nicely adapted, too. I always wished for really bold figures of the Kancolle characters, you can partially blame all the Pixiv artists for all the great ecchi fanart, but the figures are mainly modest. I ordered the light version, since the ship part is not really as important for me, as the character herself.
manufacturer: Max Factory – scale: 1/8 – release: July 2017
Love Live! School Idol Festival – Umi Sonoda
At the risk of repeating myself, I don’t count Umi as my favorite among the Love Live! girls, but fortunately she is not Maki ahahaha. I adore most of ALTER’s “School Idol Festival” figures, they are all so precious and elaborately made. Especially this Umi is a wonderful example of the lineup, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her for the first time, Umi is so cute in that outfit, also her sweet pose and expression make her extremely adorable for me.
manufacturer: ALTER – scale: 1/7 – release: April 2017
Original Character – Succubus-san
Like my previously reviewed Chitose, Succubus-san also combines a sweet and romantic style with ero figure qualities. The attractive figure has strong colors and a sexy body with a strong level of chubbyness. Her face is so cute and enchanting ♡. In stark contrast her outfit is a “dream” of latex and leather, the figure is completely castoffable.
manufacturer: Native/Rocket Boy – scale: 1/6 – release: January 2017
Now we take a look at the figures that were recently listed in the shops. I’ve sorted them by release date, among the listed items are a few things I totally would like to have, it’s really unfortunate when more than one nice figure is scheduled to be released in the same month.
Shining Wind – Touka
I have the impression that Orchid Seed is slowly getting behind the times, while other manufacturers increase their quality steadily, Orchid Seed’s figures stay on the same level, of course that does not mean that they make bad figures. This Touka for example has a very interesting atmosphere with her thoughtful pose and the diorama like base she sits on.
manufacturer: Orchid Seed – scale: 1/8 – release: December 2016
Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena – Labrys Naked Ver.
This Labrys figure looks really pretty and cool, detailed mechanical parts and a huge weapon are part of her interesting design. Somehow the robot hips actually bother me a little. ques Q also announced another similar looking cyborg girl scheduled for January 2017.
manufacturer: ques Q – scale: 1/8 – release: December 2016
Ribbon Doll Collection – Shin Ikkitousen: Unchou Kanu
Here is a surprisingly artistic and creative adaption of the Kanu character, the unique and detailed pose combined with the womanly body and her really beautiful face make her quite appealing. Unfortunately she apparently will also be released in January .·´¯`(>▂<)´¯`·.
manufacturer: Union Creative – scale: 1/6 – release: January 2017
Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena – Unit 024
Unit 024 is a cuter version than Labrys, at least I prefer it ;D The sea green hair with ponytail and a more gentle facial expression give her completely different atmosphere. I also prefer the black top. Oh, a January release too, damn that’s quite annoying for me *meh*
manufacturer: ques Q – scale: 1/8 – release: January 2017
Girls und Panzer the Movie – Alice Shimada
Despite her short her appearance in the Girls und Panzer movie, Alice gets a pretty figure, she looks nicely made, with a cute face and the sweet loli dress and she even has a teddy.
manufacturer: Kotobukiya – scale: 1/7 – release: March 2017
CHUNITHM – Haruna Mishima
I don’t know her origin, but everything about her shouts adorable. Her mainly white uniform like outfit is very pretty and fancy and there is also this extremely cute face of Haruna.
manufacturer: Alphamax – scale: 1/7 – release: March 2017
Infinite Stratos – Laura & Charles Nekomimi Pajama
Yes, this is a great two figure combination, they do both looks enchanting in their cat pajamas. The flustered Laura and the sweet Charles together on a fluffy base. I prefer Charles, but it’s sold as set. The base is bent to have a better perspective when they are displayed.
manufacturer: ALTER – scale: 1/7 – release: March 2017
Peach Girl Selfie – Miho Kunagisa
At least we need one bikini figure in this post. Miho is a dynamic figure with a bubbly expression and bold pink hair. She is scaled 1/5.5 and rather huge figure.
manufacturer: Daiki Kogyo – scale: 1/5,5 – release: March 2017
VOCALOID4 Library Stardust
This is a marvelously nice looking figure, I love her expressive face with the orange eyes, she has a slightly evil and mysterious aura, she is sitting on a nice base in a quite charming pose.
I find her extremely enchanting actually. Maybe I will be able to add her sometime.
manufacturer: Myethos – scale: 1/8 – release: April 2017
Yuki Yuuna is a Hero – Mimori Togo
The announcement of this figure was really surprising, I mean I remembered that great anime, but never thought figure manufacturers still gave attention to it. So after Yuuna ALTER will also make a figure of the beautiful Togo. The black hair and her sweet face with the green eyes and also tightly hugging bodysuit with her toes exposed are making the figure gorgeous.
manufacturer: ALTER – scale: 1/8 – release: April 2017
Shinwa Taisen Gilgamesh Knight – Deena Challenger
This cheerful, young, blonde girl is Deena Challenger, I’ve used a close up picture for startes on purpose, she is actually sitting on an elaborately designed bike, but her official pics were far away from good, HobbyJapan should really provide bigger product pictures for their expensive figures. Deena is dressed in a eccentric slutty outfit, but with such a cute face she comes away with it. The figure is sexy and her bike is stunning.
She is an exclusive figure and with 20.000 Yen she is the most expensive figure of this post.
manufacturer: Amakuni/Hobby Japan – scale: 1/8 – release: April 2017
Hyakka Ryouran – Yagyu Jubei – Final Bride Ver.
After seeing the 2 Hyakka Ryouran – Samurai After OVA, I was reminded that I will always think of Hyakka Ryouran affectionately, not that story was very compelling, but it was the chemistry between the funny and sympathic characters that made it special for me.
ALTER announced a figure of the cute Jubel in the Samurai Bride outfit, it’s a truly stunning design, I like it a lot, unfortunately it’s sold as exclusive figure. On the good side she will be released in a unbusy months considering figure orders. I could still strike.
manufacturer: ALTER/Hobby Japan – scale: 1/8 – release: Mai 2017
Soukou Akki Muramasa – Ashikaga Chachamaru – Wedding ver.
Chachamaru has always been overshadowed, by the more popular Sansei Muramasa, but she is also a heroine in that ridiculously violent game. Here Chachamaru is adapted as quite pretty bride with nice blonde hair and wow who gave her that amazingly attractive butt?! (⁄ ⁄^⁄ᗨ⁄^⁄ ⁄).
manufacturer: Amakuni/Hobby Japan – scale: 1/7 – release: June 2017
