    Summer WonFest 2017: Aniplex

    Aniplex usually has very few figures out, but they certainly deliver on sculpt quality. The star of their booth this year is the glorious Ishtar from Fate/Grand Order who is just… oh my god. So beautiful, so elaborate. Probably so expensive, but who cares? They also had yukata Sakura and the new Devil Homura out on display, all of them looking lovely.

    Winter WonFest 2017: Aniplex

    They have a second figure of Kaori Miyazono from Your Lie In April, and an announcement for the beautiful Ishtar from Fate/Grand Order. Who appears to be Rin. Seriously, what is up with F/GO!?

    MegaHobby Expo Spring 2016: Amakuni

    Amakuni, aka “maker of expensive exclusives I want but never pull the trigger on,” brought a small but well curated selection of figures to MegaHobby Expo.

They’ve also sculpted their Yukime from Jigoku Sensei Nube, who appears to be on a giant snowman head. I approve.

    Then we have two brand-new figures! A rather plain figure of Kantai Collection’s Mutsu and a definitely not plain figure of Ii Naotora from Sengoku Musou 4 . Her hair is so dynamic!
