@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

Before 2013, MegaHouse had a monopoly on the original IDOLM@STER girls. The figures were… adequate, with some standouts scattered here and there. But to be totally honest they were well aware of their lack of competition, so they didn’t try very hard to produce the jaw-dropping sculpts this cast deserves. This has changed recently, with Good Smile getting their paws on the IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls license (along with Phat!), and Phat! themselves taking on the original crew.
So far we’ve seen two totally perfect girls, in colors and poses that perfectly match their personalities: Hibiki and Iori. I’ve been chomping at the bit to see who would go next, and thankfully it’s my favorite IDOLM@S girl: MIKI! Ahhh, so excited! And the pose, so friggin cute! GLASSES! I’m dying, Phat! Company. You’re giving me a toothache with this cute.

When the name Fantasista Doll started popping up all over the place at this past Summer WonFest, my brain autocorrected it to Fantasia Doll. I mean, Fantasista Doll? Fanta..sista? It sounds like a version of Gem & The Holograms that took place in the Bronx. But as soon as I found out the really name, I was enchanted. What mysteries would it hold?!
It turns out… generic blonde girls! OMG! Shocking, wow. Short shorts and suspenders with thigh-high stockings, so quirky and original. A fencing blade and academy shirt! Ooh, thrilling. But… the base… and the wings in her hair! I’m so conflicted. I want Sasara just so I can look over at her and go FantaSISTAAAAA.

Remember when anime had simple names, like Princess Tutu and Pokemon? And Revolutionary Girl Utena and… okay, so anime has had long-winded names for a while now, but it’s gotten to the point of insanity recently. Point in case: Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko, aka The Hentai Prince And The Stony Cat. Cause that just rolls off the tongue!
If you think the show’s NAME is confusing, the characters… I’ve got Tsukiko Tsusukakashi down now, but only because I’ve typed it a ton of times. Now we have to deal with her sister, Tsukushi, who had a figure announced at WonFest. Why, Japan, WHY? (and yes I’m talking about names because this figure is hella plain and I have no real commentary. She has… nice… eyes?)

Lemme tell you something. I hate Kill la Kill. HATE IT. Hate. IT. It’s so freaking tacky. Just because you CAN expose that much skin doesn’t mean that you SHOULD. I mean oh my god girls from Queen’s Blade have more clothing on. SWIMSUIT FIGURES IN BIKINIS HAVE MORE CLOTHING ON THAN RYUUKO’S “BATTLE OUTFIT.” How do you even fight in that?! You don’t. Can you tell I am really really over fanservice in anime? Because I am. So hard.
Anyway, we’ve known for a while that some company in the GSC umbrella was making a figure from the series, and they even had a poster at NYCC! For some (stupid) reason I hoped we’d get Ryuuko Matoi in her regular, slightly less painfully embarrassing outfit, and maybe even with hip & leg anatomy that resembled a real live human being! But no. We’re getting tramp alert battle suit 2013. Oh joy.

Good Smile Company & co have really been putting out some amazing figures from IDOLM@STER in the past few months, seemingly putting MegaHouse’s years of work on the franchise to shame. We have Rin and Uzuki from Good Smile, and then Phat!’s beyond perfect Hibiki–it seems like they’re finally ready to paint one of the IDOLM@S sculpts they had at Wonder Festival, Iori Minase!
I don’t even know if I can handle the cuteness of this figure. I mean, everything is just so precious! I feel like a grandma saying that, but it’s true. The pose, her adorably squishable cheeks, the ruffles and pink everywhere, the bunny! I’m too excited! She goes up for order tonight and will be released in April (thanks, Will ^^).

There are some figures I dislike on principle. When Phat! Company’s Bayonetta popped up at Summer Wonder Festival over a year ago, with her leg in the air like she was going to mark her territory, I instantly disliked her. I’ll admit, it was almost entirely because of my dislike of the game (which I find unbearably tacky). Bayonetta has had a bumpy ride since then: she went up for order in September of 2012 and still isn’t out! Apparently her release is this month, and GSC did indeed have one on hand at their booth.
Looking at her in person, I let out a sigh. I’m still not going to buy her (the space she takes up is astounding!), but she really is an impressive figure. The base alone is almost worth the buy, and her hair is spectacular. Seriously, if they could just put that base and hair on a figure that isn’t spreading her legs like that…. it’d be awesome.

IDOLM@STER used to get attention from one figure company: MegaHouse. Yeah, that was it. Sure, they gave us a lot of figures, but there was no variety! Well the recenet spinoff IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, whose immensely cuter idols have caused a bit of a ruckus in the figure community, showed up at full force at WonFest.
First off we’ve got the just-announced Uzuki Shimamura next to a sign for Mio Honda as Good Smile’s next idol, along with two of the girls Phat! Company announced last wonder festival: Sachiko Koshimizu and Rika Jougasaki. Rika is so cute I could die, THAT HEART oh my goddd. We’ve also got some non-Cinderella girl related items, so don’t worry classic IDOLM@S fans. Chihaya is getting a figma and Phat!’s figure of Hibiki is painted. Oh… and they have the world’s friggin cutest Iori on display as well as an announcement for Yayoi. OH HAPPY DAY!
