  • You know what I was definitely not expecting to see this Wonder Festival? I mean, at this point the answer is “like 90% of the new announcements.” But in particular, I was not at all expecting a figure of Persona 4’s Rise… in a random Dancing All Night outfit. I mean, Rise is my bae so I’m not going to complain, especially because her sculpt is absolutely gorgeous. It’s just odd. A harem Rise to add to my Rise harem? [via amiami]

  • Sega seems to turn up at every single event with prize figures. There’s just an endless stream of them. But hey, I love prize figures, so I’m not going to complain! This year was, well, much like other years. A lot of the usual: Evangelion, KanColle (including the Lucky Star x Kantai Collection crossover figures), lots and lots of Mikus. We also have new Persona figures, including a Yukiko to match the P3 uniform version Chie! [via Akibahobby]

  • FREEing is always up and down in terms of quality, but man do they make a lot of things I want. We’ll start with their bunny girls: did you think the long line of 1/4 scale Infinite Stratos girls was the end? Nope, they are doing… a second line, with all the girls, standing in bunny costumes. So it’s different. There’s also a pair of Tony Taka bunnies (!!), their bunny Yoko, Koneko Toujou, Chitoge, and Index. Yukata girls? We got ’em! The Steins;Gate and Girls und Panzer lines are sculpted, along with Aegis. Oh, and there’s a creepy Mikage Kuroki from Maid-san to Boin Damashii. There’s tons of new stuff, like a Miku with super awesome hair, a swimsuit Miku & Luka, and a lovely Isla from Plastic Memories. And then we have a… lot of announcements. Hestia, Luka, Angela Balzac, Meiko Shiraki, and Nodoka Haramura. Want more bunny girls? Brace yourselves. They’ll be doing Hakufu Sonsaku and Shiryuu Chouun from Ikkitousen (FINALLY continuing that line), Momo and Golden Darkness, Yuki Nagato, and Alisa from God Eater. Damn!

  • Phat! Company is one of those companies that used to be pretty mediocre, but has recently risen to success. Mostly with those amazing IM@S figures. Of which, sadly, there were no new ones at WonFest: but we just got a bunch of updates on that front, so that’s okay. Let’s get into the figures! Their P4 Dancing All Night Rise is painted, and we have another MegaTen announcement: Fumi from Devil Survivor 2! And Labrys is painted, oh my! In non-SMT news, the yukata Lily is painted as well. We’ve also got two of the Granblue Fantasy figures, Io and Yueru, and they both look amazing. Rin Suzunoki has been painted and looks amazing, and their God Eater boy was out on display along with a lot of IM@S Medicchus. They also announced a figure of Taihou from KanColle, and showed off their Angela. Check them all out below! [via Phat’s Twitter]

  • Since I started figure collecting, I’ve been dreaming about high quality Persona figures. No, not the endless Aegis we get, or the P4 figmas. But the P3 MC. I seriously have dreams about finding a great figure of him. And now… MY DREAMS WILL COME TRUE, because Max Factory is making a figma of him!! WHAT!! I’m too excited. I need to calm down. I wonder if we’ll get other cast members? Junpei? MISATO? [via GSC]

  • Did you know that so far, counting all the recolors we’ve gotten, there have been ten Persona figmas so far–but only one boy? Which is odd, because the cast is always split about 50/50 between the male and female characters. But god forbid we get tons of figures of them! Grumble grumble. Well, we are at least getting a figma of the Persona 4 protagonist (why not P3? Whyyy), and I’m sure we’ll see some more once P5 comes out. But today we’re looking at Yu Narukami, the prematurely gray highschooler who saves the world! He popped up in the NicoNico broadcast, so I was pretty sure orders would open soon. And indeed, they have! He comes with everything we originally saw–glasses, sword, and a card. Honestly, it’s not as much as I’d like, but I’ll take it. Oh, and if you order from Good Smile you get… a second jacket! Wow, thrilling. I’m always happy when their exclusive bonuses are things I’d never want. He retails for ¥6,000 with a September release date. Pre-Order At: AmiAmi | Hobby Search | Good Smile Online (bonus jacket)

  • One of my very first PVC purchases years and years ago was Wave’s hard-to-get Teddie, who even back then was a challenge to find (especially the rare variants!). But since then Persona 4‘s popularity in the figure world has skyrocketed to proportions I never would have guessed. So of course we got lots more Teddie figures! This one is really riding on the tail end of P4‘s success (or on hype for Persona 5, perhaps?) but of course I’m going to get it. IT’S TEDDIE. I was kind of bummed by the initial plain art, but he looked great at Anime Japan and of course he looks great in the promotional shots! It’s definitely on the simpler end of things, but the price (¥5,800) reflects that. He’s actually pretty large, 7 inches tall, so it’s a bargain! Of course Aniplex figures are always exclusives, but they do ship overseas so he won’t break the bank… too much. [via P4_A’s Twitter]

  • Oh look, another event in Japan! This one isn’t actually centered around figures like MegaHobby or WonFest–it’s about anime! And that’s where 80% of figures come from, so of course a few showed up. We’ll start off with Aniplex who brought quite a few new things. The first in importance (to me) is the sculpted Teddie–he looks so great! And huge. Then we’ve got painted versions of the maiko Sayaka & Kyoko, who took a while but they definitely look like they were worth it. Then there’s the surprise announcement: Shiki Ryougi! Her pose looks really great and dynamic, but of course Aniplex = expensive. They also had a few up-for-order figures out and about, so check them all out in the gallery. [via Dengeki]

  • Vertex may be a mid-level company, but they make figures of my boos Mitsuru and Yukari so I love them. So much. I mean look at that Yukari, ahh, my heart. I guess they had some other stuff like *shudder* two Pocacos and also a cowgirl Sonico to match that scary Pochaco. Can we be done with these two? I’m over it. 100% over it. They also had that figure of Itou Ittousai painted… yeah, it’s way too much for me. I like everything but her boobs which are BIGGER THAN POCHACO’s. Is such a thing even possible? Back on the “figures I’m not scared of” front their Celia made an appearance with no updates, there’s the super plain (and so bland it honestly looks like they didn’t make her) figure of Mio Naruse. Finally, a new announcement: the loli-tastid devil girl Maria Naruse who I like in spite of myself. [via Akibahobby]
