Another month, another batch of magazine scans! They’re definitely gearing up for October, since these scans are full of some lovely treats: new Hyakka figures from Alter, the revival of the Shining Hearts swimsuit line, the goofiest Nendoroid, a totally gorgeous AlphaMax girl. But of course there are many tricks to be found: mainly, ridiculous pricing. I mean, beyond Goddess Madoka ridiculous… companies, what is going on?! But good news outweighs the bad, so hit the jump and let’s get started!
Yagyu Jubei | Alter | 1/8 | 2013 | Exclusive
I don’t care that this is an exclusive, I need it NOW. It looks like they’re working on a season 2 line, with Gotou up next. Hey… where’s Charles?!
Noel Vermillion 2P | Amakuni | 1/8 | Exclusvie
The original Noel is nice, but… looks like she has a broken ankle and back, her pose is ridiculous. Not too excited about a 2P version.
Lucifer | Orchid Seed | 1/8 | Exclusive
She is looking better and better whenever I see her!
Aquila Yuna | MegaHouse | 1/8
Looks like a Precure girl, very cute.
Dolosera Crea | MegaHouse | 1/8
The sculpt doesn’t look as polished as the other Aquarion girls, hopefully she is better painted.
Bianca Sazanka | MegaHouse | 1/8 | ¥7,770 | January
AHHH so cute! I love the colors.
Rise Kujikawa | MegaHouse | 1/8
Oh Rise, you look so so much better than Yukiko. Thank god!
Sakura Ichiko | MegaHouse | 1/8
Her eyes kind of freak me out, I really don’t like her character design… and seriously, what is wrong with her spine. It’s like it doesn’t even exist, is she part snake or something?
Medaka Kurokami | MegaHouse | 1/8
She looks worse than Max Factory’s, and I hated that one too.
Nanoha Force Version | FREEing | 1/8 | ¥18,800 | March
OH GOD THE PRICE. WHAT?!
Sakuya Crimson Version | Kotobukiya | 1/6 | ¥12,600 | January
THESE PRICES what is going on I hope these are wrong wtf
Shining Hearts Swimsuit Line | Max Factory | 1/7
THEY ARE BACK! We’re getting Nellis, Amil, Aerie, Xiao-Mei, Melty, AND Mistral! Max Factory, you have redeemed these scans for me.
Hacker | Max Factory | 1/7 | February
Oh yay, an early 2013 release for my beloved Hacker!
Lysette Kalar | Good Smile Company | 1/8 | ¥7,800 | February
Ah, so cute! And small! AND not too expensive! Good job, GSC.
Kanu (Aisha) | Amakuni | 1/8 | Exclusive
Mm yes, want.
Cryska Barchenowa | AlphaMax | 1/6 | ¥7,700 | March
A large, gorgeous, reasonably priced figure? What is this madness, I love you AlphaMax.
Kuroyukihime | Kotobukiya | 1/8 | ¥9,450 | February
I can’t believe this is less than their Sakuya, what is Koto smoking.
Goddess Madoka | Max Factory | figma | February
I am still not sold on the paint, but she really does look good here!
Yui Takamura | Max Factory | figma | 2013
Aw yis Muv-Luv figmas.
Gumi | Good Smile Company | Nendoroid | ¥3,500 | January
Ahh, her chibi face is adorable and I love the sunglasses! After a long wait, fans won’t be disappointed.
Iron Man | Good Smile Company | Nendoroid | January
He is so stupid looking and I love it.
