Time once again for the wonderful gift of magazine scans! You know, a sneak peak of the figures that will be eating up all our money in 5 months or so. Living on ramen is worth it for such pretty plastic ladies! Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves. Anyway, we’ve got a good batch this month. Some long-awaited Alter sculpts are finally sculpted, we’ve got both Hyakka Ryouran and Queen’s Blade, a Nendoroid fans have been begging for, lots of exclusives, and a few surprises along the way. So come along and check them all out!
[UPDATE] Updated with FREEing and AlphaMax, along with MegaHouse’s Chie and Lancer!
Yagyu Jubei Hakugin no Kenki Version | Alter | 1/8 | ¥9,800 | April | Exclusive
Ahh she’s so gorgeous! And that price, yesss. She’s not pricey at all for that level of detail!
Yagyu Jubei | Alter | 1/8 | ¥8,190 | March | Re-release
I think it’s weird Yagyu is getting another re-release when everyone knows Sen is the most coveted girl.
Noel 2P | Amakuni | 1/8 | ¥9,480 | March | Exclusive
Eh. The first one was just okay, not feeling the red.
Azusa | MegaHouse | 1/7 | March
EEE Azusa is my second-fave Idolm@ster girl (Miki is #1) so I am thrilled to FINALLY see her in the line.
Yunoha Thrul | MegaHouse | 1/8
Ehh. I know everyone wanted Thrul, but the sculpt just looks so-so.
Crea Dolosera | MegaHouse | 1/8
She looks better than last time we saw her, that’s for sure.
Alicia | MegaHouse | 1/8
I really love the fairy-tale theme of QB Grimoire, and I love that MegaHouse is doing them because it means we’ll get (almost) all the girls! Red Hood should be next.
Mistral Neris | Alter | 1/8
FINALLY YES COME TO ME MISTRAL. *grabby hands*
Lorna | Max Factory | 1/7
ANOTHER Tony swimsuit girl?! If they actually go through with this line, we now have 7 girls in it.
Mami Tomoe | Medicom | RAH | May
I think these are pretty much big figmas with fabric and a large pricetag. Not really interested, though Mami does look nice.
Black Gold Saw | Max Factory | figma |March
I loved her at the Dengeki event, and I love her more after seeing the faces!
Labrys | Max Factory | figma | February
I wasn’t too impressed at the event shots of her, but I love all the extras she comes with.
Melona | FREEing | Nendoroid | 2013
God, they finally added Melona to the line. Maybe this means Ymir and Nanael still have a shot? *fingers crossed*
Yui Takamura | AlphaMax | 1/6 | ¥7,400 | April
I am glad they did Yui to go with that gorgeous new Cryska, hopefully we get Inia as well.
Lancer | MegaHouse | 1/8
I am really surprised they have him sculpted before the previously-announced Gilgamesh.
Chie Satonaka | MegaHouse | 1/8
Yay, Chie! Yukiko was so disappointing but I think Rise & Chie look worlds better.
Mai Shiranui Red & Black Versions | AlphaMax | 1/7 | March
AlphaMax sure likes butts.
Rana Linchen | FREEing | 1/4 | ¥17,800 | March
Well they’re finally continuing this line after almost a year! I love Bridgett & Ingrid, interested to see how Lana turns out.
