    Summer WonFest 2017: AlphaMax

    AlphaMax never fails to disappoint me. Whether it’s with the creative new ecchi art they’ve picked up (unlike some companies *cough*native*cough* they seem to remember generally what human women are shaped like), or their cute/sexy licensed figures.

    This year we have a great mix with a big focus on the Fate franchise. Swimsuit Jeanne d’Arc & Saber Extra and the lingerie Saber & Saber Extra sets look so cute! We also got a lovely Sora Kasugano. Check out all their new goodies in the gallery!

    [UPDATE] Added a few extra girls from moyeo, post is now NSFW

    Summer WonFest 2017: Good Smile Company

    2018 seems like it is going to be the Year of the Sitting Figures for Good Smile. A shocking amount of their sculpts are just hanging around! I actually prefer sitting gals (easier to display a full shelf with height variety) so it’s good news for me. We saw a few of their figures already, like the ones at Fate/History and Mikus, but we got a lot more.

    Quite a few of their announcements are now sculpted: the “old” version of Kiss-Shot, birthday Rem, Megumi Katou, the Hot Limit girls (Sonico, Uzuki, & Eriri), Anastasia from Cinderella Girls, Izetta, Phosphophyllite, and Kouhai-chan.

    But the new announcements are what grabbed my attention. We have a wedding Louise (!! when was the last time she got a figure), Shuvi Dola from No Game No Life, Emilia from Re;Zero, and Akari Kawamoto. Oh, and uh… a Groot & Rocket Raccoon scaled figure.

    Last WonFest, FREEing announced that they would be doing a figma of Pixie, one of the more iconic monsters from the Shin Megami Tensei franchise. Oh, and Mara too, but that ended up being a $300+ figure. Bleh.

    But now, we have two figmas! Pixie and Angel. I have to say, neither of them looks… particularly amazing, but this is FREEing after all, and the monsters are so starved for figures that I am not going to complain.
