Monster Hunter Tri Archive

Cerberus Project is one of my favorite gk circles–but really, I think they are one of everyone’s since they have two of the most accomplished sculptors in the business. They’ll have 3 figures for sale at Wonder Festival, all of them totally awesome. French Doll has two sculpts here–a second Elin and a Hunter from, of course, Monster Hunter Tri. Both are lovely, but when it comes to PVC only Elin has a chance at being produced (since Elin v.1 is already up for order).
Then we have G.O’s lone sculpt, the jaw-dropping Jin Seo Yeon from Blade & Soul. Oh my god is that a fantastic figure! The detal is just… uhnf, I need her in my collection right now. Thankfully this does seem like a very Yamato figure, I could easily see them producing her!

Welcome to a week of particularly pretty ladies! And unusually enough, no boys! Even a year ago having a boy would be a big deal, but now it seems like there’s one every week so it’s unusual that we have none! My, how the figure world changes. Of course that’s not all that has changed: figure companies have made leaning a thing of the past, so we also get more adventurous poses… and boy, do we have some nice ones this week! Along with way too many Nendoroids, lots of swimsuit girls, and one chainsaw-wielding babe, so hit the jump to check them all out.

As excited as I was at the announcement of Monster Hunter Nendoroids, the final Male Hunter left me wanting. His color scheme was so… garish! But at WonFest they announced a Female version, and I still had high hopes. Well, it looks like they’ve paid off! While this Bario X version doesn’t have the gritty look I’d really love, her color palette is a lot more refined. She looks amazing, from her jointed ponytail to her awesome one-handed sword!
She’s part of the Super Moveable Nendoroid series, which means you can put her in some pretty cool poses. However, she’s kind of lacking in accessories: she only has two faces, angry and injured (which we saw in the Aoko preview). They do show her off with a cute chibi face, but it’s not actually hers. Of course she has her weapon as well, but that’s about it. At least we did get some very clear hints that this series is probably continuing, perhaps with a bowman even! I am liking the line even with its flaws, so let’s hope we see more of these little warriors in the future.
Female Hunter went up for order tonight, with a price of ¥4,000 and a January release. January seems to be getting a bit brutal already, it seems like each month is worse and worse! I wonder if it’s because figures are getting better or because prices are going up?

Given that there aren’t many actual characters in Monster Hunter, only classes, and none of the girls are in cute frilly outfits, I think it was an odd but interesting move for Good Smile Company to pick up the license. The games are noted for their rather gritty and realistic appearance, and it was going well when they showed off the sculpt for their male Monster Hunter Nendoroid. Then…. he was painted, and looked bizarrely garish.
Of course I’m still getting him, with the hope that the colors will be toned down. And, inexplicably, I am still excited for the female Hunter they announced at Wonder Festival! Probably because I just love really big weapons. They’re showing off the sculpt now and it looks really good! This is the Berio X Armor version, and it’s entirely possible we will get other versions of both the male and female hunters. Now, if only she came with a little Airou… then I’d have to buy 6.

This month’s magazine scans got off to a very bumpy start, with blurry cellphone pics and other oddities. Now, though, we have all of the scans in glorious high resolution! That’s right, no more peering at them to see company names. Many of the figures were already covered in our previous post, but of course we’ve got some new info as well. First off, there are three (3!) figures of Erica Hartmann: Alter has their version of her painted, the Nendoroid is complete, and there’s also an adorable resin kit. Kaitendoh has also brought a trio of figures, all of which look surprisingly good. There’s a new Kirino, a new Hello Kitty girl, and Mikado, a companion piece to their amazing Retia.
There are two new colorways of previous figures: a red version of ques Q’s Bunny Taiga and a pink shimapan Soniko from Gift, who is just as risque as the previous release. We’ve also got scans of prize figures, Nendoroids going up for order this week (Monster Hunter and Nodoka), figmas and Gutto-Kurus, AmiAmi Zero’s Houki STILL without a price, and a few more PVC cuties. Check them all out in the gallery!

When Good Smile Company showed off their Monster Hunter Nendoroid, I was very excited. The sculpt looked amazing, and my hopes for the finished product were very high. However, we’ve just gotten the full preview and I am… less than enthused. The paint is really the main issue here, as it’s flat and way too bright. I was expecting more muted tones and lots of shading to fit with the mood of the games, but sadly I find this Lagia Armor Nendoroid cartoony.
The other issue is that Mikatan shows him off with all kinds of cool stuff: a bit Rathalos and Lagia to fight, as well as a bit of meat to cook. However, none of it come with him–Good Smile didn’t make ANY accessories, even though there are tons and tons of options from the game. Overall, I’m having a hard time getting excited for this release… I was so hoping for a little Airou. He goes up for order on the 23rd, and let’s all pray that GSC just forgot to show off some things that will be revealed there.

Good Smile Company usually announces their figures well in advance, so it’s a bit of a surprise that out of nowhere they’ve come up with a brand-new sculpt. More surprisingly, it’s from the Monster Hunter franchise! Monster Hunter Tri to be exact. And look at that sword! Spectacular! There are no release details yet but we’ll know more by tomorrow, as the full reveal will come at Tokyo Toy Show 2012. I think this might be a bundled figure, given that it’s from a game, but he’s certainly detailed enough to warrant that status!
