Guys, I think Flare finally got me. I keep insisting, “No, too expensive, don’t need it!” But this year, I want everything so bad. Mostly because it’s almost entirely Tony Taka, which I can always get behind. Swimsuit versions of Won Pairon and Altina Mel Sylphis, and they’re doing a cute teacher (?!) Sakuya.
The Rei from their teasers is here (but no sign of Noah yet, weird) and they WILL INDEED be doing a matching Asuka!! Yuss. We also have the beautiful dress Gwendolyn from last WonFest sculpted, and announcements for YoRHa No. 2 Type B from Nier: Automata and an original character from Happoubi Jin.
[UPDATE] Finally found Noah, and added Saber Bride as well!

FREEing seems to only make 3 things: huge bunny girls, tiny swimsuit girls, and medium-sized yukata girls. And sometimes boys in various sizes (though, so far, never a bunny one!). This year, yeah, that’s all they had. Lots ‘o bunnies, swimsuits, and yukatas. For some characters, like Rem & Ram, you get both mega bunny size AND mini swimsuit size!
We’ve got some bunny-sized Muv-Luv girls (Yui Takamura, Ilfriede von Feulner), Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! 2 bunnies (Aqua & Megumin), Highschool DxD swimsuit girls (Rias & Akeno) and the surprising addition of Shinji & Kaworu in yukatas. As for announcements, we have 2 Dead or Alive bunnies (Marie Rose, Honoka), 2 Girls und Panzer bunnies (Yukari & Kay), and Kaito. Man, I love how popular Marie Rose suddenly is!
[UPDATE] FREEIng is doing another tan waifu, aka Thailand Racing Miku 2016! SO CUTE
[UPDATE 2] Added some stragglers to the gallery

It’s that time again! Time to look at a few of the garage kits that will be on display and for sale at Wonder Festival. Of course for most of us this is just to drool over, but as always if you are attending the event each picture is labeled with the circle & character name! Also, I am insanely jealous of you.
The trends this year are basically what you would expect. Tons of Re:Zero (and by that I mean tons of Rem & Ram, who cares about the other characters!), idol shows out in force, and quite a bit of Granblue Fantasy. Some old trends seem to be dying (there’s very little of Miku & Sonico compared to previous years). And, surprisingly, Cartoon Network is represented quite a bit. Check them all out in the gallery below, and let us know what you’d like to see as PVC!

I really want to love Flare. They make beautiful figures with insanely intricate sculpts, and they take on interesting licenses. But they are just so expensive. Every time I see a figure from them I think, “wow, pretty, but not $150 pretty!” And sadly, that’s how I feel about their teasers. Two figures I’ve been looking forward to, but will either be worth their steep pricetag?
We have Shunya Yamashita’s Rei Ayanami (will they do the matching Asuka? I never liked the Yamato one, and that I’d pay for…), and Noah from Little Noah. Ugh, her clear hair! So pretty! I want it…

We are about a week away from the two big winter events, Toy Fair & Winter Wonder Festival. But before then, a little taste of that event-reveal excitement! Yes, it’s time for ~yet another prize fair.~ I do love prize figures, but I had to cut myself off because man do those boxes add up into a wall really quickly.
This time around, we have of course all the usuals: Dragon Ball Z (I need that Piccolo), Fate/Stay Night, IDOLM@STER, Sword Art Online, Bakemonogatari, Evangelion, Disney, Kantai Collection, et cetera. Everything from cute to creepy (can we stop with the big-head Disney Princesses now?). There are some newcomers on the scene too, like Touhou Project and BLAME! The star for me is that Anzu Futaba in the header: that sculpt does NOT look like a prize figure!

We saw what Good Smile Company & co and Vertex brought to Miyazawa Model, but of course a few others showed up as well! Though it seems like everyone else was limited to one or two new figures up their sleeves. Kotobukiya had just a handful of new stuff: Wilhelmina Braunschweig Ingenohl Friedeburg (why with this naming) from High School Fleet, aka “that KanColle ripoff” and…. Spike is finally painted!
Revolve didn’t have much, but they did have announcements for Rem & Ram from Re:Zero. Aoshima had a lovely Izetta from Shuumatsu no Izetta on display, and Medicom had out their Gary/Blue/whatever you want to call him. Pulchra announced two new Vocaloids: Yukari Yuzuki and… a different figure of Yukari. And let’s not forget about the wacky EVA Unit-01 action figure on display!

It’s almost fall, and you know what that means–new season, new Prize Fair. They’re on the 45th already, if you can believe it! And like always, the big 4 (FuRyu, Taito, SEGA, & Banpresto) had all the upcoming prize figures out on display.
I always try to swear off prize figures, but like clockwork there are one or two that draw me back in. This time, funnily enough, it’s a collab I’ve basically ignored because I’m interested: the Madogatari figures. That Kiss-Shot in Homura garb, hnnng! There’s lots of other great stuff, and of course all the regulars (Evangelion, Miku, KanColle, Disney, Dragon Ball Z) were out in force. Check them all out in the gallery below!

Of course the highlight of Phat! Company’s booth was their amazing IDOLM@STER girls, but they rocked pretty much everything. I have to admit, they’re fast becoming one of my favorite companies. And they didn’t disappoint this year! I mean, just look at the header girl, Jibril from No Game No Life. MY HEART. Djeeta from Granblue is just as cute, plus we have Julius Visconti from God Eater and a super cool new Raimu Kawasaki from Bakuon. Oh, and the amazing poseable Evangelion gals (plus sassy Unit 01).
Then the announcements! Saber Extra, Pepperoni and Anchovy from Girls und Panzer (who approved those names, really now) and Ai Ninomiya from Amanchu!.

You know what they say: new season, new prize fair! Okay, so only I say that, but it’s basically true. Prize Fairs are a never-ending event that seem to strike when the weather changes. I know it’s technically been spring for months, but here in NY it’s been incredibly chilly until just this week. Finally, warm weather! And new figures!
We have quite a few awesome things here, and some less than awesome ones as well–like the incredibly creepy Disney Princess line that will haunt my dreams. But along with the nightmares are cool releases like a bunch of Dragonball Z goodies including, at long last, Mr. Satan! We’ve also got Macross, Evangelion, Miku Hatsune, Fate/Grand Order, Kantai Collection, and a whole lot more… like my persona favorite, the Okami noodle toppers. Check them all out below!

When you think of collaborations you’d like, it’s usually relatively similar things. Like Sailor Moon x Rayearth (my dream figure collab) or Zico x T.O.P. You know, stuff that logically works together. Not… uh, giant robots and giant dinosaurs. Who, I guess, are both giant, so… they have that in common…
Yeah, this is just weird. And magical. It’s Godzilla (or Gojira, if you’re fancy/Japanese) with an Eva Unit-01 paintjob. This is the stuff dreams are made of. A fully poseable S.H. Figuarts is coming our way, but of course it’s a freaking exclusive with a pre-proxy price of ¥9,200. Ouch. But like, I don’t even care. I need this so very much.
