Another month, another batch of magazine scans! Is it just me, or have scans kind of tapered off in intensity? I feel like several companies have kind of “dropped out” of the Hobby Japan scans, namely Good Smile Company & co. We really don’t get many big reveals from them anymore! In fact, the scans pretty much seem to be “check out what cool things MegaHouse has, with some stuff from Alter and Kotobukiya on the side. Oh, and maybe Orchid Seed will pop up too!”
Decline of the scans or not, we do have a pretty action-packed month for you! Well, if you’re a MegaTen fan at least. Because there are three new MegaTen girls! And only one of them is from Persona, believe it or not! So hit the jump and let’s get started.

Welcome to the week of scantily clad ladies! It seems that everyone this time around is at least partially undressed–we’ve got everything from swimsuits to maids to aprons to lingerie to cow outfits (no joke). Well, not everyone: there are some ladies with a full set of clothing, including a goth loli who has proven herself pretty popular and one of the less popular Nanoha ladies. Check them all out after the jump!

You know that moment when you lay eyes on a figure and you just know she’s the one for you? That’s how I felt when I saw AlphaMax’s new Tony Taka figure at Miyazawa Model Exhibition. I’m a huge Tony Taka fangirl as you may know and I snatch up (almost) any figure with his name attached to it, so of course I own quite a few at this point. But this fetching lady, who seems to be named Ringo, tops them all.
Her face! It’s the closest I have ever seen a company come to Tony’s artwork, and some of them have come pretty damn close in the past. She’s just… perfection. So much so that I couldn’t pick between the two big event galleries of her. They’re both below the jump for you to drool over!

Okay, what is up with the influx of Haganai figures at this event? First Kobato, then Sena, now a second Sena?! Well I’m not going to complain since I am a big fan of the character design. AlphaMax has already taken on miss Sena, but this time she is in 1/6 scale and in her infamous cow outfit. Not something you see a lot of! It’s just ridiculous, in a hilariously good way.
The second figure is another Tony Taka girl from them, this time an original (and NSFW) character. Recently they’ve been doing the ladies from Fault!, and pretty darn well. AlphaMax seems to have really gotten the hang of his faces, and this is one of the best renditions of his art I’ve seen. Good job, AlphaMax!

There hasn’t been much in the way of new announcements from Miyazawa Model Exhibition, more so just companies showing off newly painted or sculpted figures. But finally, we have something brand new! FREEing has taken on Mei Misaki from Another and are doing a swimsuit version of her. No scale is listed, but based on the group shots I’m going to guess at 1/7 or 1/8.
We also have some of their figures from Wonder Festival painted. The 1/4 scale Miu Takanashi and Sora Takanashi are painted, along with the very busty Marie Mamiya from Starless.

Katsura Hinagiku from Hayate no Goku! had her (brief) moment in the sun: a handful of figures, mostly prizes, along with a Nendoroid. After that it was radio silence, her time had come and gone. But, mysteriously, she’s been revived for Kotobukiya’s newest swimsuit figure! While they have no specific swimsuit line per say they knock them out nearly as much as AlphaMax or Wave.
Kotobukiya actually worked on Katsura previously in a cute stage-themed figure, but this time she’s (literally) stripped down and ready for some sun. This is a recolor of their 2009 beach version of her, switching the pink swimsuit to blue striped. While her character design isn’t my favorite she is looking rather cute here, and at ¥6,300 for a 1/6 scale figure she’s an awesome deal. But there’s a catch: she’s an exclusive. Set for an August release, even with proxy fees she will cost about the same as a 1/6 scale from any other company. Yeah… prices have risen a lot in the past 4 years.

Ah, Silent Hill. A peaceful and serene game franchise featuring monster designs that are cute and cuddly and you’d totally want versions of for your house. Right? I mean, look at that sexy Bubblehead Nurse Gecco and Mamegyoari made! And now, the adorable Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2 is making an appearance.
Okay, so it’s really rather terrifying and disturbing (especially given the fact that it’s dragging around a Mannequin body) but hey, he’s so cool looking! And given that this beast is 1/6, scale and a massive 13 inches, his price of ¥12,000 doesn’t seem like that much at all. If you’d like a little piece of terror for your collection he’ll be coming out in July.

Another week, another batch of figures! This time we have a smaller amount, and almost all of them are from Good Smile Company & their umbrella companies. That’s right, they put out a whole lot this time around! But overall it is a fantastic week, with lots of gorgeous figures and very few flops. Check them all out after the jump!

We know that Good Smile Company has been recently collaborating with Medicom on their Real Action Heroes line, giving them coveted licenses in exchange for distribution rights. So far it’s been mainly the Madoka girls, but now we are getting a new, relatively GSC-exclusive character: Miku Hatsune!
My wallet is weeping. I try so hard not to give in to figures like this, 1/6 and poseable is just not my thing. I resisted Madoka, Homura, even Mami. But Miku… yeah, it’s going to be harder. Thankfully she isn’t looking irresistible here, the face is a little stiff, but of course she’ll come with others!

While Pullips usually aren’t my thing due to how unbalanced their giant heads are, but the Tokidoki-designed Luna was a definite exception. Her two-tone wig, dramatic makeup, chic clothing and awesome tattoo all spoke to me. She went up on Japanese sites, but of course that is crazy expensive for those in the US even with the current great exchange rate.
Well, US stores have finally opened up their doors on this doll! Her retail price is $169.99, though you can find her a bit cheaper at some stores. She should be in stock very soon, and I am really considering ordering her!
