    Preview Alter’s Beautiful Shiki Ichinose

    I am absolutely helpless against the onslaught of IDOLM@STER figures, especially if it’s one from Alter or Phat! Company’s lines. I just… I love their designs so very much. The pink, the frills, the over-the-top aesthetic. I eat it up with a spoon (as long as the price is reasonable, which is my main concern with this cutie).

    This time around it’s my most anticipated IM@S girl from Alter: Shiki Ichinose! I love how unique her pose is, very creative… though you know she’s going to be a shelf hog because of it. And the level of detail is amazing! I mean, just admire the book. And her little cat-mouth, aww! Orders open tonight, and I can already feel myself hitting that pre-order button.

    Summer WonFest 2017: PLUM

    PLUM didn’t have a ton at Wonder Festival this year, and the focus definitely seemed to be on new announcements. They had 3: Assassin from Fate/Grand Order, Megumi Jinno from Eromanga, and Jun Gotou from Tenshi no 3P!.

    They also had some new cuties out on display: Chie Sasaki & KaoruRyuuzaki from Cinderella Girls, and Kokoa Hoto & Chino from Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??.

    Summer WonFest 2017: Good Smile Company

    2018 seems like it is going to be the Year of the Sitting Figures for Good Smile. A shocking amount of their sculpts are just hanging around! I actually prefer sitting gals (easier to display a full shelf with height variety) so it’s good news for me. We saw a few of their figures already, like the ones at Fate/History and Mikus, but we got a lot more.

    Quite a few of their announcements are now sculpted: the “old” version of Kiss-Shot, birthday Rem, Megumi Katou, the Hot Limit girls (Sonico, Uzuki, & Eriri), Anastasia from Cinderella Girls, Izetta, Phosphophyllite, and Kouhai-chan.

    But the new announcements are what grabbed my attention. We have a wedding Louise (!! when was the last time she got a figure), Shuvi Dola from No Game No Life, Emilia from Re;Zero, and Akari Kawamoto. Oh, and uh… a Groot & Rocket Raccoon scaled figure.

    [UPDATE] Added the Your Name duo to the gallery

    Summer WonFest 2017: Kotobukiya

    Kotobukiya always has figures from a wide variety of licenses out on display, and this Wonder Festival was no different. Kemono Friends, Fate/Grand Order, No Game No Life, Girls und Panzer, Frame Arm Girls scaled figures (!!), Eromanga Sensei, Kakegurui, Pokemon, a super cute animal girl (?) from Made in Abyss, boy idols from IDOLM@STER SideM, and so much more.

    Sadly, it seems like there are no new Yu-Gi-Oh boys… come back to me, babies.

And it’s always with girls (or boys, from the Altair line) from franchises that I otherwise wouldn’t care about. Am I super obsessed with their Love Live and IM@S girls? Yes. Would I willingly watch either of those shows? No. I just love frilly dresses so very much.</p> <p>This year they have a great lineup. Shiki Ichinose from <em>Cinderella Girls</em> is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in my life, but the Love Live girls are also looking strong with a gorgeous Riko Sakurauchi. We have many, many FREE! boys and some other Altair announcements: <em>Fate/Grand Order</em> dudes! Merlin, Arthur Pendragon, and Edmon Dantes will all be getting scales.

    Are you ready, guys? Because Wonder Festival has begun! Actually, it’s about half an hour away, but companies love to make me miserable by tweeting out their own stuff before doors even open. Yayy.

We’ve also got IDOLM@STER, Girls und Panzer, Galko-chan, Sakura Wars, an announcement from Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??, and a surprise Tony Taka gal.
