    NYCC 2017: Kotobukiya’s Anime Figures

    While Kotobukiya tends to focus on more US-friendly comic/game/movie toys at comic conventions stateside, they never fully forget their anime & manga fans! This year they had quite a few beautiful sculpts, including the American debut of the gorgeous sculpt for Jabami Yumeko from Kakegurui. Just look at that hair!

I know we were all hoping for <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/game-toys/nier-automata-x-dollfie-dream-actually-happening" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Nier</a> or <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/volks-announces-dollfie-dream-luka" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Luka</a>, but we’re getting… more Saber! Fate/Grand Order Saber and Jeanne d’Arc, to be exact.</p> <p>I’m going to be honest: I am not happy with this decision. We have <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/volks-dollfie-blog-gives-us-our-first-look-at-saber-alter-and-saber-extra" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">so very many</a> <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/volks-brings-holiday-cheer-with-their-new-dollfie-dream" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Saber Dollfies</a> already, and it looks like the new one has the same head sculpt. Jeanne is pretty, but do we NEED more Fate Dollfies that are, essentially, Saber clones? I’d much prefer any of the Casters. Or, like, any other character. Ishtar? A new Rin? But nope, it’s DD Saber again. They will be pre-order dolls so no rush to enter a lottery! Hopefully this isn’t like the last set, though, where Volks wanted the whole cost upfront. Since these have armor & swords they will likely be around $1,000 each, and I can’t imagine casually dropping 2k for a product you won’t get for a year!</p> <p>[via <a href="http://www.volks.co.jp/fgo/?fref=gc&dti=498203886856903" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'outbound-article', 'http://www.volks.co.jp/fgo/?fref=gc&dti=498203886856903', 'Volks']);" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Volks</a>]</p>

    Volks Announces Fate/Grand Order Dollfie Dreams

    In a surprise move, Volks has shown off two fully finished Dollfie Dreams for their next pre-order project and both are a total surprise. I know we were all hoping for Nier or Luka, but we’re getting… more Saber! Fate/Grand Order Saber and Jeanne d’Arc, to be exact.

    I’m going to be honest: I am not happy with this decision. We have so very many Saber Dollfies already, and it looks like the new one has the same head sculpt.

    Pulchra is a company with great ideas but usually not-so-great execution. Aside from the header girl Marie Antoinette, who we already saw at Fate/History, none of their sculpts really stand out to me. Except for Isuzu Sento, but that is… not in a good way. What is happening with her chest. They actually remind me a lot of Griffon, especially with their penchant to put up cards with the sculpt on them instead of, you know, just bringing the figure.

    They had a LOT of announcements this year. Rosehip from Girls und Panzer, Tooka Yatogami & Yoshino & Kurumi Tokisake & Origami Tobiichi from Date A Live, lots of To LOVEru girls, Ryoubi from Senran Kagura, and a reclining Emilia from Re;Zero.
