  • I was really uninpressed but Alter’s Summer WonFest 2013 offerings, but it seems like that’s because they were saving all the good stuff for MegaHobby Autumn 2013! We got a veritable deluge of figures: swimsuit versions of Charlotte & Cecilia, Akane Isshiki from Vividred Operation, two Strike Witches, a gorgeous new Sora Kasugano, Asuka from Senran Kagura, and The Muse of Range Murata. Of course they had even more great figures, but we’ll be taking a look at the rest a bit later! There was a whole lot to feast your eyes upon, but at the time we (obviously) only had event photography. Quick, “oh my god look at this figure!” event photography. But some time has passed, which means it’s time to sit back, relax, and browse some higher quality galleries of these gorgeous ladies. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but my money’s on Sora all the way. I mean…. that dress. She’s perfect! [via Tmizo’s Flickr]

  • After all this time… we might actually be nearing the end of Alter’s Strike Witches line! At least for the season one cast lineup. That’s right guys, Lynette Bishop is on the scene! Painted, sculpted, the whole nine yards. Though I don’t think this is the totally finished version, since the shading on her hair looks a little flat. To be honest she’s probably my least favorite Witch so my opinion of the sculpt reflects that: I’m not wowed. I am, however, head over heels happy that the second version Yoshika they announced is actually a redo of her original sculpt, unlike second version Sanya! Ahh, finally, Yoshika can join my Witches and the whole crew will be here. [via Iory Hamon’s Twitter]

  • Whoo, scans. Pardon my lack of enthusiasm, but the week leading up to Wonder Festival always has me dreading scans. It means extra features (garage kit roundup and wishlist) on top of, well, the event coverage and we have three reviews to work on this week! So when I remembered scans were tonight I nearly cried. For real, ask Stephen. So, let’s just dive right in. Wow, such figures! So PVC! Wowwwww! Maybe I’ll just do every post in Shibe…

  • Game bundles are the bane of collectors–quite often you are tempted to buy a game you probably will never play (and sometimes can’t due to region restrictions) just for the figure. Thankfully you should at least be able to play the PSP Strike Witches game, though I doubt most of us will understand what is going on! This game is going to come bundled with a Nendoroid of Lynette Bishop in a swimsuit, much like the exclusive swimsuit Yoshika a few years back. You can snag the set on AmiAmi for ¥8,680 and it’ll be released in June. Personally I am pretty tempted, as the game looks fun and I regret skipping on Yoshika!
