Madoka Kaname Archive

  • Ah, Aniplex. Maker of prices that make my heart sing and my wallet cry. I will admit that I only own a scant few of their pieces because 1) insane pricetags and 2) exclusives. It’s a bad combo! But once again, I am impressed with their new lineup and want them all. We have 4 announcements today! First off, we are getting more Fate/Apocrypha figures: Mordred and Astolfo. Their amazing Ishtar is also painted! They will also be re-visiting Madoka… or Magical Record Mahou Shoujo Madoka ☆ Magica Gaiden, which is not at all a long and annoying name or anything. They will be doing Madoka (of course) and Iroha Tamaki. Can’t wait to see them all sculpted! [via Aniplex]

  • Yes, you read the header right! One teaser, singular. Aniplex is a rather small company in terms of how much they put out, so it’s no surprise that they don’t want to spoil all of their big reveals. They did, however, choose a good one to show us–it’s Devil Homura! To go along with the just-up-for-order Goddess Madoka. I included a picture of her in the gallery because guys, I hate her face. She looks drunk. Or high. Do not want!! Hopefully Homura is better? [UPDATE] Added 2 new teasers from Your Lie in April and Sword Art Online! [via aniplex_plus]

  • Remember when Madoka fever swept the figure world? Sure, we still get some stuff from the show, but it’s nothing like that peak-Madoka hype. Ultimate/Goddess Madoka was particularly prevalent: dolls, figmas and Nendoroids, prize figures, and of course the amazing Good Smile scaled version of her. It’s been quite some time since we saw a figure of Godoka, but Aniplex hasn’t forgotten our lord and savior! They’ll be doing a figure of Ultimate Madoka, and while I have the GSC one already I really love the softer, cutesy style and pose they went with here. I think it honestly fits her character more than any other version! Can’t wait to see her painted, and part of me is hoping they do a Devil Homura to go along with her. There is matching art, after all… [via Aniplex’s Twitter]

  • We have seen two of Kotobukiya’s most exciting Wonder Festival announcements (new Pokemon and Cowboy Bebop), but I don’t think anything could prepare me for the exciting boy-figure-flood that was about to happen. Not only did they have Spike on display and their sculpted Atem, but we’re getting a brand new Lelouch from Code Black!! Thank you figure Jesus. We are blessed this day. And that’s not all (obviously)! So much new stuff, like an adorable Madoka, High School Fleet figures, Type-Moon’s Heroine X, a bunny-tastic Airi Totoki, Sebastian Cu-Poche, and a sculpted Velvet Crowe. We also have a few announcements! They’ll be doing another Tony Taka butterfly sister (who looks suspiciously like Miku), Vira from Granblue Fantasy, and RyuuZU from Clockwork Planet.

  • 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. First and foremost, their serene Homura & Madoka figure set is finally painted–and maybe it’s just the paint, but their hands look a little less awkward here. 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! [UPDATE] Kokuten no Miko Tamayorihime from Wixoss was on display as well! [via AmiAmi’s Twitter]

  • Ahh, Amakuni. What am I gonna do with you. They’re a mystery: some figures (I’m looking at you, Kasumi Iwato, and your crazy boobs) are just terribly made. Others, like the sculpts they showed off for Nunnally Shirokiite and Umuru, are just gorgeous. Then we have the lovely 7 Deadly Sins line and of course the big header surprise: Grizzry Panda’s AMAZING Homura & Madoka, finally as PVC! How do they make things so good and so bad? It’s a mystery. We also have some announcements: Saki Miyanaga & Hatsumi Usuzumi from Saki Zenkoku-hen, Kashima from KanColle, and Kokuten no Miko Tamayorihime form Wixoss. [via amiami]

  • I have always viewed Azone’s 1/3 line of dolls as less-nice versions of Dollfie Dreams: the faces are less detailed, there are decal eyes instead of glass ones, and the joints just aren’t as nice as Volks’. But every once in a while, they announce something that I absolutely have to own. Actually, it’s only happened once (with Black Raven II Lilia), but I might have a second Azone doll to add to my wishlist. It’s not, as you might have guessed, the Madoka in the header. Uniform version, yawn. They’ve already made her in her magical girl uniform, which is her superior look in my opinion. No, my excitement is for the announcement that accompanied her: Devil Homura! IN DOLL FORM. Be still, my heart. [via madopillow’s Twitter]

  • We’ve seen a lot of Madoka Magica figures from Lawson: three sets of trading figures, and a cheerleader Homura. But of course you can never have enough Madoka, so now we’re getting… yup, another figure from them. That’s limited and exclusive, of course! What fun would it be if you could just buy these like regular figures? They need to be special! Of course, by special I mean expensive. Because this looks like a prize figure: sure, the concept is super cute, but the quality? No. Just no please. Are you thinking “oh, but she’s so cute!” Wait till you hear the price: ¥8,800. Before fees. LOL, okay Lawson. Totally a thing I want to spend my money on. [via Lawson]

  • Oh, RAHs, you have become my weakness. Stephen and I have decided that we REALLY need to cut down on figure ordering due to space (aka we have none), so suddenly the high price point of a Real Action Hero doesn’t seem that bad. We have all the Eva Units, Saber Lily will be mine, but there are some lines even I don’t cross. Those lines include huge wings that can push a price past $250. Can you even imagine how much she is going to cost? Don’t even. I can’t. However, she’s so very pretty. So very, very pretty. If they do winged Homu I am dead in the water. The water of my tears, spilling down as my wallet empties into Medicom’s pocket. [via 2chan]

  • Did you think the Madoka figure surge was over with that last art figure of the girl herself? You were so wrong. As we saw at Wonder Festival, Good Smile and Aniplex are teaming up to make us all spend every last cent of our figure budget on these girls. And by “these girls” of course I mean Homura. Did you think you had enough figures of her? You were so wrong. We have the Maiko Homura we just saw preview images for, a gorgeous standing HomuHomu with a crazy base and bonus Kyuubey, and then the crown jewel: Winged Homura, aka the best thing give it to me right now. Uuuugh, I want all of these right now. [via djdaniel_tw & air_dotter]
