    SDCC 2017: Street Fighter Bishoujos Chun-Li & Cammy

    We’ve known for a while now that Kotobukiya would be doing a second version of Bishoujo Chun-Li, and I think most of us expected her to pop up at San Diego Comic Con. What I didn’t expect was two Bishes at once from the oft-neglected Street Fighter line: they have a new Cammy as well!

    It makes sense since these two were released quite close together in their original versions, and it’s kind of amazing to see how far the line has come since then. There is so much more detail here! Those thighs on Chun-Li, man, they’re something else.

    Kotobukiya’s Summer WonFest 2017 Teasers

    Wonder Festival is over a week away, but already we are getting teasers! Earlier every year, I tell you. This time Kotobukiya is first up to bat with quite a few updates & new figures… and they always have 2 teasers, so there are more where this came from.

    First up is the sculpt for their Pokemon Sun & Moon Lillie, along with the announcement that they will be doing Moon as well! We also have a new sculpt for Nono Morikubo from Cinderella Girls, and a new Captain America. They also teased the sculpts for Shokudaikiri Mitsutada from Touken Ranbu and Yang Wen-li from Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu.

    Good Smile Company & Co’s Summer Wonder Festival 2017 Exclusives

    For a few years now I have bemoaning the downfall of festival exclusives. It seems like companies never have anything big and fancy. Well, GSC is making me eat my words for this Summer Wonder Festival because they pulled out ALL the stops.

    First off, finally the return of scaled figures! And what an unexpected one. Max Factory is re-releasing their famous (and rare) Kasumi in 1/20 scale in the PLAMAX line. She’ll retail for ¥3,000. Kaiyodo will also have a new Wonda-chan for ¥9,800.

    We have quite a few Nendoroids. There’s the updated Reimu from Touhou Project (¥5,000) and a set of Asuna & Kirito O.S Versions (¥5,500 for the set).

    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!

    Is it just me, or are figmas coming with less and less these days? Aside from her weaponry, Tracer has very little in the way of extras.

    Alter Announces Eizen From Tales of Berseria

    I have a confession, guys: I have never played a Tales of game. I love the designs, I own quite a few figures from the franchise, and I’m a huge fan of JRPGs so… what gives? Who knows, but I recently purchased Tales of Berseria and I’m excited to dive in. Once I finish some other games in my massive, frightening backlog. Seriously, it’s like 1,000+ hours of games in a scary tower.

    Timed perfectly with my purchase is Alter’s announcement that Eizen will be joining their Altair line. It’s always surprising to see a male character given figures before a female one, but that seems to be Alter’s MO with this series. It’s really refreshing, even though I do hope they make a Velvet (and Magilou please) down the line.

    Check Out Pokemon Nendoroid Lillie

    Just in time for the unveiling of Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon we have our first look at Nendoroid Lillie! Speaking of the new announcements… what do you think they will be? Total sequels in the style of B2W2 or just updated versions like Crystal, Platinum, etc?

    Lillie was far from my favorite character in SM (grow a spine girl), but she seems to be head and shoulders the most popular.
