Phat! Company Archive
Posted by Leah Bayer on May 2, 2013 | 3 Comments
Phat! Company has recently gone from a small, kind of underdog company to a much bigger force in the figure world, as demonstrated by the veritable ton of announcements they had at Winter Wonder Festival. Among these were quite a few IDOLM@STER girls, most of them from the Cinderella portion of games but one of them was the adorable and feisty Hibiki Ganaha!
She popped up sculpted pretty much out of nowhere. While Phat! didn’t used to be a great company they’ve improved a lot lately as miss Hibiki shows–how cute is this sculpt? So cute! Hibiki looks totally amazing, I love the pose and her face is just, ugh, I’m dying. Hopefully we get to see her painted soon! I actually like this Hibiki even more than MegaHouse and Kotobukiya’s versions so far.

We’ve already gotten quite a few delays from Good Smile this month, but those seemed to mostly be of GSC and Max Factory figures. Of course Good Smile has many other sister companies, so now it’s time for the figures they won’t be releasing anytime soon! Well, there are two GSC figures: Mikudayo Nendoroid (good riddance) and the Racing Saber Petit Nendoroid, which are both now coming out in April.
Then we have the non-GSC stuff: FREEing’s big Nanoha, their blah Kanade and the Arshes I totally hate are all April. Surprising, since FREEing isn’t usually big on delays! Phat! Company is pushing back both their Bayonetta (May) and Prisma Illya (April), which given their history of delays is to be expected. Last, the Penguin Parade Madoka Magica Pettankos are April. So are you breathing a sigh of relief or do these delays mess up your budget?

Wonder Festival has come and gone, but it seems like there are endless photographs from the event. We wrapped up our coverage quite some time ago, but as you know the first pictures that leak are usually from cellphones and aren’t as crisp and clean as we’d like.
Well, today we have for you a gallery with gorgeous photos of many of the figures at the event! This batch covers Good Smile Company, Max Factory, FREEing, Wing, Phat! Company and Gift. There were so many beautiful girls this WonFest, in fact I think it was the best one we’ve had in quite some time. So, Plastikitties, what here are you planning on picking up–and what was a big miss for you?

When Phat! Company first started making Nendoroids, you could practically hear the groans from the figure community. Back then Phat! was very small, and as you can clearly see in some of their earlier Nendo releases (especially the Queen’s Blade girls) the quality was just not up to Good Smile’s standards. But Phat! has been moving along at a brisk pace: they have a ton of announced figures, and their quality seems to be taking a steep climb upwards! Heck, just look at the detail on Cecilia compared to the first Infinite Stratos Nendoroid, Houki. She has those weirdly grainy eyes that certainly aren’t present on Cecilia!
In fact, Cecilia is downright adorable. She’s got three fantastic faces: a standard face that’s really lovely, a closed-eyed smiling face, and a starry-eyed expression. She also comes with a basket and a sandwich for you! Totally cute. I am now really looking forward to Fang Lin Yin (and the inevitable Laura and Charlotte).

Another week, another batch of figures! This time we have a smaller amount, and almost all of them are from Good Smile Company & their umbrella companies. That’s right, they put out a whole lot this time around! But overall it is a fantastic week, with lots of gorgeous figures and very few flops. Check them all out after the jump!

Sometimes figure announcements have a snowball effect: one company picks up a characters and then everyone wants them! That seems to be the case with Aty from Summon Night 3. A Wonder Festival Alter announced a figure of her, and now we are getting the sculpt as well as a second announcement! Alter’s version is done by my favorite sculptor, Yayguu Toshiyuki, and I love the dynamic pose. She’s obviously not finished, and I bet the final sculpt will be amazing!
Second, we have an announcement that Phat! Company will also be doing a figure of Aty. Based on the art it will be very different from Alter’s, with a more relaxed pose and a diorama-style base. That means you can get both without worrying that they will be similar! Is it just me, or has Phat! Company really ramped up production? Just look at all their WonFest lineup!

You know what we need more of? Chibi-sized action figures. Nendoroid, Cu-Poche, the Wing line and those weird Daidabi Deformate ones are NOT ENOUGH. No, more we say! Phat! Company has been listening (to the cries of crazy people) and has started up a hybrid Nendo/figma line.
The first 3 in the series will be Aegis from Persona 3, Saber from Fate/Stay Night and a lady from Trillion Starlight. Uh… weird selections. 2 overplayed characters, one I’ve never heard of before. Well I’ll be getting that Aegis anyway because I’m a Persona whore.

I have officially overdosed on Nendoroids. Do you know how many there were at Wonder Festival? 38. THIRTY FREAKING EIGHT. Over 40, counting the petits. So we’re just going to dive right in: all of the teasers are here, Chariot, Monokuma (and his pink counterpart Monomi), Hitagi, Shizue, Sheryl (and a matching Ranka), Tsukiko (petit and full sized), Rin Natsume and Darth Wooser. As far as BRS goes, we also have a full Strength and Petits of BRS herself, Strength, Black Gold Saw and Chariot. The next Touhou Nenodoroid is Aya Shameimaru, and unsurprisingly Akane Isshiki will be getting a full Nendoroid and a Petit along with Rei Kuroki. Nozomu Itoshiki is getting a second version, which seems a little weird!
Then we have Inia and Cryska from Muv-Luv, a new set of Vocaloid petits, Sasami Tsukuyomi, Misaka Mikoto, Charles Yoshino, Tooka Yagotami, Cecilia Alcott, Akane Tsunemori, Maou, Tia, Amy, Ricca Morizono, Miyuki Takano, Alice Kuji, a petit of Rachel Alucard, more Nanoha and Aegis. PHEW! Check them all out in the gallery.
