    Summer WonFest 2017: Wing

    Wing is another one of those companies I am never quite sure is going to make it another festival. They make high quality stuff, but it seems like every year they have less and less. This time around, it’s only a handful of girls! We do have a beautiful sitting Sakura Saber, along with Sansei & Nisei Muramasa.

    There are also 2 new announcements: a really cute kind of cyberpunk Atago, and Neptune! Usually we get Purple Heart so this will be a nice change of pace.

    Sansei Muramasa Gets Yet Another Figure

    Sometimes I think that no matter how much you love a character who becomes an It Girl in the figure world, you are bound to eventually become tired of them. I used to be incredibly excited when a new figure of everyone’s favorite tan elf waifu came out. We got some truly beautiful pieces of her, and very little in the way of poorly sculpted ones.

    But the tides have turned, friends. Now it seems that companies just put out half-assed figures of poor Sansei Muramasa. This time around it’s Orca Toys who is manufacturing her, and it’s a swimsuit version. Oh joy. Maybe it’s the angle, but her face looks strangely elongated. Then again, you don’t really buy this for the face, do you?

    Wing Announces Yet Another Sansei Muramasa

    Wing sure does love the world of Soukou Akki Muramasa. We’ve got two figures of Sansei Muramasa (regular and bunny, which got two colorways), one of Nisei Muramasa, and another of Ashikaga Chachamaru. It’s a lot of love for a pretty niche game. But the ride’s not over yet! Because they’ve announced another version of their favorite girl, Sansei Muramasa. Sadly this isn’t some wacky version like bunny or wedding, it’s just her.

    So many aspects of her are perfect. The flowing twintails, the soft pastel colors, the sleek racing outfit, the cute pose, the body sculpt, the face… and of course the butt.

    FuRyu’s Newest Sonico Takes A Vow Of Chastity

    Sometimes I wonder if Tsuji Santa bases his Sonico illustrations on trips to a costume shop that specializes in “sexy” versions of things. Just walking the aisles, being all “well I already did sexy baker and sexy unicorn, let’s see what else is trendy right now? Oh, I know! Sexy nurse Sonico!” That was my thought when we first saw this figure, and the paint has basically confirmed it.

    I mean, everything about this is hilarious. Her “nun dress” doesn’t even cover her ass, but the habit is close to the right length? They didn’t even put real crosses on her dress lest it offend anyone! Truly, FuRyu is a giver of wonderful gifts.

    Get Thee To A Nunnery, Super Sonico!
