    NYCC 2017: Good Smile Company’s Booth Overview

    I remember the dark times when Good Smile Company didn’t come to US events. Thankfully those days are over, because their booth is usually the toy highlight of any convention! And they really brought it for NYCC this year with not one but two separate booth displays.

    They had a lot of brand-new goodies, like the Anniversary Miku (look at that hair!!), figma Genji, and the sculpt for the Breath of the Wild Guardian Nendoroid. It’s always nice to be able to see figures in person, it’s quite a different experience–for example, I wasn’t really sold on Marie Rose’s colors at all when the promotional shots came out, but I was totally won over when I finally got to see her.

    Check Out The New Racing & Snow Miku Designs

    Usually we get a decent amount of time between the reveal of Good Smile’s two seasonal Mikus, Snow and Racing. But this year, they’re going a little crazy for her 10th anniversary and showing off both at the same time! Because what we need this week is more Miku news, don’t you think?

    I must admit that the Racing designs almost never win me over until I see a sculpted scale, and this one is no different: it’s a little blah, and I feel like the ‘royalty’ theme for her is a little overdone. The Snow design, though, is so cute! Makes me sad we never get scales of the Snow designs.

    Summer WonFest 2017: Pokemon

    It seems like every year we get more and more figures from Pokemon. It used to be one or two at each event if we were very lucky, and the quality was never that good. Truly we are living in the golden age. Like today, when both Kotobukiya and MegaHouse have their Lillies painted! Plus we have a new announcement from MegaHouse: Serena will be next up.

    Not enough for you? Well Max Factory has a figma of Moon and GSC announced a Nendoroid of Suiren. That’s a lot of Sun & Moon.

    [UPDATE] We are also getting a Moon figure from Koto!

    [UPDATE 2] Added the Mewtwo & Rayquaza figures from X-PLUS via amiami

    But now, we have two figmas! Pixie and Angel. I have to say, neither of them looks… particularly amazing, but this is FREEing after all, and the monsters are so starved for figures that I am not going to complain.

    Cheers Love, figma Tracer is Here

    Good Smile Company’s Overwatch line has been moving along at a pretty steady pace. The first figure we got from them was the too-cute Nendoroid Tracer, and hot on her heels is the figma version from Max Factory!
