Erica Hartmann Archive

  • Figmas: those tiny poseable things that Max Factory and a few other companies make a ton of every year. So without further adieu, here’s a super long list of em. We already told you about Shizuo and Izaya from Durarara!!, but we’ve also got word that FREEing will be doing Celty as well. Also from FREEing we’ve got Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant from the original Virtua Fighter, Femto, Void, Ubik, Slan, and Conrad from Berserk, Magic Kaito from, well, Magic Kaito, the Vitruvian Man, and what appears to be some sort of cherub, but is way too tiny and also only an outline to be able to tell. Then from Wing we’ve got Masaru Nananakajima from Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san that we already saw in their previews. From Phat! Company we’ve got Sherlock Holmes, Ninja Slayer, and Yamoto Koki who is also from Ninja Slayer. Finally, rounding out weird third parties making figmas we’ve got Tactical System Uniform Girl by Tomytec. Then from Max Factory we’ve got a whole slew of things: Angela Balzac, two versions of the Archetype, Benisuzume from Knights of Sidonia, Erica Hartmann, Mio Sakamoto, and Yoshika from Strike Witches, a Fubuki anime ver. and Prinz Eugen from KanColle, and Miho Nishizuma Uniform ver. from Girls Und Panzer to round out our selection of anthropomorphic military vehicle females. We’ve also got a Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell: Arise, Shirou from Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works, Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yotaro from Arpeggio of Blue Steel, Mika and Rika Jougasaki fromĀ iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, and Rin and Umi from Love Live to round out the anime selection. For video games we’ve got a Gurlukovich Soldier from Metal Gear Solid, Majima Goro from Yakuza, and the picture of the previously announced Samus from Metroid: Other M. Then in the movie world we’ve got the Hulk, Iron Man XLIII, and King Leonidas (I have no clue why). Other announcements that we can’t show as they were do not photograph: Tomoyo’s figma from Cardcaptor Sakura and the new Sakura figFIX. Phew!

  • Strike Witches has seemed pretty consistent in popularity since its inception, but recently we’ve been getting a kind of mini figure-boom from them, starting with Alter’s adorable dual figure of Eila and Sanya. Now even more are on the way! Well, two more figures and three Nendoroids. Let’s start with the figures: Aquamarine will be doing bunny versions of Erica Hartmann (who is already sculpted) and Charlotte E Yeager (who is already a bunny girl?). I wonder if we’ll get the rest of the cast from them too! Then, after years of silence, we’re getting a revival of the Strike Witches Nendoroid line. Which, honestly, I never thought would happen! We have a sculpted Perrine H Clostermann, and announcements for Mio Sakamoto and Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke. I wonder if the older ones will get a re-release too? [via mfc]

  • Welcome to a very interesting week of PVC pre-orders! For the most part, our big-deal manufacturers are nowhere to be seen except for an (overpriced) Nendoroid Petit. What we do have is a metric ton of re-releases, a giant bunny girl, one insanely overpriced figure, and one of the strangest releases I have ever seen. So hit the jump and check out the wackiest week of 2012…. so far!

  • Welcome to an action-packed week of orders here on Plastikitty! We’ve got a little bit of everything this time, including tons of boys, a single Nendoroid, some great re-releases, and of course a lot of Wonder Festival items. For me, though, it was the week of Tamaki. After a long time with no good Tamakis we got not one, not two, but… uh, yeah, two of her this week. Finally! So hit the jump to check them all out.

  • The Strike Witches Nendoroid line started slowly, but it’s been churning along at a steady pace with five releases so far. Next up is Erica Hartmann, who we saw at Wonder Festival. I feel so conflicted about Erica: on one hand, her design is totally adorable, but on the other she doesn’t have animal ears! Her “animal parts” are a tail and instead of ears the fringe of her hair gets dark to represent that she’s a Dachshund or something. She actually comes with quite a few option parts, including 3 faces: happy, winking, and yelling. I really love the winking face, it’s so cute! Plus she has her “dog hair,” striker unit, a gun, cool effect parts, and of course her snazzy hat which doesn’t at all look like a Nazi uniform. She’ll be going up for order tonight and will have a December release. [via Mikatan]

  • The week after Wonder Festival we really don’t see that many releases from companies. In fact, they’re usually so busy moving stuff back and resting up that this week would be a “dead week” with only a few figures going up for order. Well, we’re not exactly bursting at the seams with them, but we do have enough for a roundup! And some very nice ones at that, including (finally) another one of Alter’s Witches, Meat from Good Smile Company, and a really big bunny girl. So hit the jump to check them all out!

  • There are always a ridiculous number of Nendoroids at Wonder Festival, so many that posting then in individual posts would probably take days. So instead we’re going to bring you roundups! First, the anime & manga-based Nendos. We already showed you the BRS Nendoroids, but there’s a whole lot more, though honestly I don’t find this batch as exciting as last WonFest’s. First up we’ve got the girls in Mikatan’s teaser, Hakase and Akari! Then there are a few Nendos we knew about that are now painted/sculpted: Erica Hartmann, Mirai, Leonmitchelli Galette des Rois, and Kanna Tanigawa. As for new announcements, I find them a bit underwhelming. We’ve got Frau Koujirou and Akiho Senomiya from Robotics;Notes, Yuno from Hidamari Sketch, and Sakai Wakana from Tari Tari. Personally, I’m most excited by the 3 Muv-Luv girls: Cryska Barchenowa is sculpted, Inia Sestina is in art-form, and Yui Takamura is only an announcement, but I think pluguits are a nice change of pace for the Nendo world!

  • This month’s magazine scans got off to a very bumpy start, with blurry cellphone pics and other oddities. Now, though, we have all of the scans in glorious high resolution! That’s right, no more peering at them to see company names. Many of the figures were already covered in our previous post, but of course we’ve got some new info as well. First off, there are three (3!) figures of Erica Hartmann: Alter has their version of her painted, the Nendoroid is complete, and there’s also an adorable resin kit. Kaitendoh has also brought a trio of figures, all of which look surprisingly good. There’s a new Kirino, a new Hello Kitty girl, and Mikado, a companion piece to their amazing Retia. There are two new colorways of previous figures: a red version of ques Q’s Bunny Taiga and a pink shimapan Soniko from Gift, who is just as risque as the previous release. We’ve also got scans of prize figures, Nendoroids going up for order this week (Monster Hunter and Nodoka), figmas and Gutto-Kurus, AmiAmi Zero’s Houki STILL without a price, and a few more PVC cuties. Check them all out in the gallery! [via figure/gk]
