    Check Out The Love Live! Nendoroid Petit Angelic Angel Versions

    One of Good Smile Company’s Wonder Festival reveals was a Petit Nendoroid set of the Love Live girls.

    Wave Announces A Handful Of New Figures

    Wave was conspicuously absent from Wonder Festival. I thought the pressure of no one buying the insanely overpriced Beach Queens might finally be taking its toll, but it seems like they were just… saving a bunch of sculpts. And, shockingly, none of them are bikini girls! We have two stand-alone figures: one of Hestia, and another of Miho Nishizumi. Is EVERYONE making a Hestia? Sure feels like it.

    Then we have two girls from Infinite Stratos, Houki and Charlotte, in lingerie. I’m going to guess that they will eventually do all the girls, much like their Saber lingerie line. And considering how smitten I am with the IS cast, this is great news! They’ve shown off Houki in two colors, pink and white, with one of them presumably being an exclusive because Wave just can’t resist making crazy expensive alternate colorways. Hopefully the white is the regular release, because I like it a lot more than the pink.

    Summer WonFest 2015: Pulchra

    You know we’re pretty much done with Wonder Festival when we get down to companies like Pulchra! Not that they’re terrible, but they are quite small and their quality is only so-so… so far, at least. Their sculpts at Wonder Festival looked better than their previous offerings, so maybe they’re on the way up!

    They had quite a bit out on display: Koneko Toujou from Highschool DxD, Enju Aihara from Black Bullet, Kirishima Lei, Esdeath from Akame ga Kill!, and Mio Naruse & Yuki Nonaka from Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha. They’ve also announced a Yuuki Mikan from To LOVEru!
