@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

Back at NYCC during Kotobukiya’s panel, they showed off a bunch of new ArtFX+ statues in their DC Comics line including an unpainted Batgirl. Babs here is based on her New 52 design and, I guess was a favorite of both DC and Kotobukiya as she’s the first one painted, and boy does she look great! Her paint is similar to the alternate colorway Batgirl Bishoujo that came out featuring black and gold paint with Babs’ signature red hair and mixes glossy and matte paint quite well. No word on a price yet, but expect her to be in the $39.99 range and she’ll be available to swoop down from the rafters in June of 2014.

Wave, what are you doing. Please stop. Why would you show off like 20 releases at once? You need to stagger this stuff! I feel like I’ve been info overloaded. About halfway through slogging through this massive image vomit I got to the fact that another MegaTen series, Devil Survivor 2, was getting Beach Queens (or more specifically Io Nitta, but I’m sure Airi will join her!) and I just went “oh okay.” Instead of acting like a 10-year-old in an ice cream parlor, like I usually do when anything SMT related is involved.
We’ve got a ton of ladies for you today! They’re (finally) doing an Ayase from OreImo, the Suisei no Gargantia girls are sculpted, we’ve got quite a lot of Girls und Panzer & Vividred Operation, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S snuck its way in, and then there’s the more “fringe” and new licenses. Tokurei Sochi Dantai Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C3-bu (what even?), Kiniro Mosaic, Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince, Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru (I can’t), Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru, and Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai a good librarian like a good shepherd (these names oh my god).

I feel like this announcement should have been made ages ago: Wave loves nothing more than girls in skimpy bikinis, and who is more suited for that role than Super Soniko? And seeing as how they hand out her license like candy on Halloween, I thought we’d get a Beach Queen of her like… years ago. But nope, it took until 2013! Her sculpt does look crisper than most Beach Queens, so perhaps some extra time went into it?
There’s a lot to love (and hate) in this figure. Let’s get the stupid top out of the way first. I HATE underboob–it’s so ridiculously impractical and stupid. Any real girl would rather die than wear her stupid swimsuit. But I love that Wave kept her hips and thighs sufficiently curvy, and we’re getting some nice hip cleavage too. Also an ice cream cone! Though the pose really is kind of absurd and over the top…. but isn’t that kind of her thing?

Who doesn’t like Nightwing? Come on, he’s awesome. Because he’s an acrobat… who fights crime. If you don’t like him you can just get out of here! So I was excited when Kotobukiya announced an ArtFX+ of him because 1) he doesn’t have enough figures and 2) it’s a super affordable line (I don’t have enough cash for 1/6 statues!).
We got to take a look at him at NYCC and uhnf, I’m in love. I rarely fangirl out for male figures but oh my god Nightwing I LOVE YOU. Though I do wish it was his blue outfit. But come on now, the chances for a recolor are probably really high…. right?

A while back, Kotobukiya announced that they’d be doing a set of Avengers ArtFX+, a nice counterpart to the now-complete Justice League lineup. It’s moving along at a pretty rapid pace (much faster than the DC line!) and they have four of them already sculpted and on display at New York Comic Con,
The only painted one was Black Widow, who is looking much better than what I expected based on the art (which is just not my cup of tea). In fact, the sculpting on all 4 is quite sharp and so much better than what I expected! Hulk is unpainted here, but he’s actually colored–which you can see in our panel overview for these guys. Which Avenger are you looking forward to the most?

Of all the figures Good Smile & Co could potentially bring to New York Comic Con, this is definitely not one I thought would pop up! Something this delicate is not something I’d want to ship overseas in prototype form… but apparently, Belldandy is nearing her release date and based on the numbered base this might actually be a regular release. If so, I am absolutely astounded because the craftsmanship here blows anything I’ve ever seen out of the water.
We’ve all seen this figure what feels like a hundred times. We’ve featured her on the site over and over, but seeing her in person is something else. The sculpt alone is just… mind-blowing. The detail! Her HAIR! I am so happy I pre-ordered this piece, and she’ll undoubtedly be the show-stopper of any collection she joins.

A short while ago, Wave announced three new Beach Queens: Miki Hoshii, Azusa Miura, and Takane Shijou. In typical Wave fashion they’ve moved quite quickly and all three of these girls are already painted! And, unfortunately, in typical Wave fashion the uncolored sculpts looked a lot better. I’m disappointed in all of the finished versions, especially Azusa and Takane.
Miki was the only one I was planning on buying anyway, and perhaps I’m biased but she looks the most acceptable to my eyes. Yes… acceptable. Not good, just… okay. There’s very little shading on any of the trio and they just look so flat! For shame, Wave, for shame.

Of the many, many shows, games and manga Wave has worked on over the years they seem to have a crush on two in particular: Evangelion and IDOLM@STER. We see them churn out figure after figure from these two franchises! I’m surprised they haven’t started on Cinderella Girls yet, but it seems like at last we are getting second versions of two of my favorite IM@S girls: Miki Hoshii and Azusa Miura, along with Takane Shijou.
I adore figures in sitting positions, so these are kind of an instant win for me. I’m totally in love with the sculpt for Miki, though I feel like the busts are kind of overdone on Azusa and Takane. I know they are the bustiest girls in the group but they look weirdly padded and unnatural here. But I’m trying to slim down on my collection anyway, so Miki is the only must have! Now if only they’d do Anzu Futaba…

[note: this post contains Evangelion Q spoilers, read at your own risk!]
I’m sure a lot of people groaned and rolled their eyes when Wave announced they’d be doing a figure of Rei in her Evangelion Q outfit (along with Asuka & Mari). But I can never get enough Eva, and Rei’s new plugsuit is totally bitching! Actually, it’s technically a new Rei too–this isn’t the same clone we’ve seen before! Totally different character! That acts exactly the same, only this time with even less personality. I bet you didn’t even think that was possible.
This is pretty much just a repaint of their old Rei with a little bit of resculpting going on, but she does look sweet if a bit plain in the pose department. But the price is low, so I’m not going to complain (too much). And she comes with a backpack! Probably for all the books Shinji keeps trying to force her to read. Evangelion Q: Eva, only with more books and music this time & less fighting and drama. So exciting!
