prize figures Archive

  • When I first saw the images for this figure pop up on my Twitter feed, I would never have guessed that it was a prize. I assumed that it was some surprise new Wing version of her, or maybe Orca. But no, this is a prize figure from FuRyu! Given that they’re branching out into scales, maybe I shouldn’t be surprised at how great she looks. I love when we get more casual Sonico, especially in her OG cat hoodie outfit. While this is newer art and as such features her new-and-improved bust (remember when it wasn’t so crazy?), I’m still smitten. And it’s cheap as heck! You can get both colorways at AmiAmi for an absolute steal. [via t_santa]

  • Prize figures have always been appealing: you get a cheap version of a popular character, often in an outfit that we’d never see in scales. Plus, the quality gets better and better on them every year. With rising scaled figure prices and a worsening exchange rate, prize figures are looking better than ever, so it’s a good thing the upcoming lineup of them seems amazing! We have all the regulars out and about: Evangelion, Kantai Collection, Sword Art Online, Fate/Grand Order, Bakemonogatari, Miku, Lupin, and many many more. The noodle topper ones really seem to be taking the prize world by storm: I have a few and can vouch for how amazingly fun they are to display all sorts of odd ways. Any of them catch your eye?

  • Very rarely does a figure line disappoint me as much as MegaHouse’s Dragon Ball Girls collection. High-quality figures of some of my favorite nostalgia anime girls? Yes please! But the results were… bad. They managed to make every character look like a pinup spread: totally changing their body proportions, personality, and faces to make them more “sexy.” I honestly found it kind of insulting: I don’t need Android 18’s boobs to be literally spilling out of her top in order to think it’s a great figure. Thankfully, Bandai is here to save they day! They are starting an HG Girls Dragon Ball line with Bunny Bulma and Android 18. These are just the poses I wanted from MegaHouse, bless you Bandai. Of course they are only prize figures, but that means a low price (¥1,800). They are exclusive, though, so you will need a proxy to pick them up from Bandai’s web store.

  • It seems like every year we get more and more Racing Miku figures. It used to be just the standard GSC scale/figma/Nendoroid, but now there’s Thai Miku and TeamUKYO (biking) Miku and sometimes even two figures of the main design. And it seems 2017 is shaping up to be the most prolific yet: we already know she has a scale from GSC and one from Amakuni based on slightly different art. Now Tony Taka is showing off two new designs! One of them, the TeamUKYO biking Miku, already has a prize figure from Banpresto you can check out in the gallery. Will we be getting a scale of her, or of the beautiful kimono-wearing art gracing GSC’s new cars? Neither has been announced, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they showed up tonight… [via Tony Taka’s Twitter]

  • We are about a week away from the two big winter events, Toy Fair & Winter Wonder Festival. But before then, a little taste of that event-reveal excitement! Yes, it’s time for ~yet another prize fair.~ I do love prize figures, but I had to cut myself off because man do those boxes add up into a wall really quickly. This time around, we have of course all the usuals: Dragon Ball Z (I need that Piccolo), Fate/Stay Night, IDOLM@STER, Sword Art Online, Bakemonogatari, Evangelion, Disney, Kantai Collection, et cetera. Everything from cute to creepy (can we stop with the big-head Disney Princesses now?). There are some newcomers on the scene too, like Touhou Project and BLAME! The star for me is that Anzu Futaba in the header: that sculpt does NOT look like a prize figure! [via Dengeki]

  • It’s almost fall, and you know what that means–new season, new Prize Fair. They’re on the 45th already, if you can believe it! And like always, the big 4 (FuRyu, Taito, SEGA, & Banpresto) had all the upcoming prize figures out on display. I always try to swear off prize figures, but like clockwork there are one or two that draw me back in. This time, funnily enough, it’s a collab I’ve basically ignored because I’m interested: the Madogatari figures. That Kiss-Shot in Homura garb, hnnng! There’s lots of other great stuff, and of course all the regulars (Evangelion, Miku, KanColle, Disney, Dragon Ball Z) were out in force. Check them all out in the gallery below! [via Dengeki]

  • 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. [via Tsuji Santa’s Twitter]

  • So we’ve already seen the goodies from the 43rd Prize Fair. Or have we?? Because we all know what’s really important, and it’s not figures. It’s cats. Cats are what is important. Especially those little digital cats on your phone. Because let’s be real here, I’m sure at least 50% of our readers are totally addicted to Neko Atsume, aka the world’s greatest game. We’ve seen lots of merchandise from it, but it seems like there is more and more coming down the pipe. Like, constant new cat plushes. This time we’ve got plushes of all size: a giant Cream-san, face cushions both large and small, and the rolly polly fat ones in the header. So cute, so precious. Gotta have ’em. [via Dengeki]

  • Prize figures are definitely not the focus of Wonder Festival: after all, they have their own prize fairs all year round! But of course Sega & FuRyu couldn’t resist showing off some goodies. Including, of course, a billion Sonicos from FuRyu and tons of Love Live! and KanColle from Sega. Check them all out below! [via Dengeki]

  • It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Pokemon fan in possession of a good fortune must be in want of some PokeFigures. You know it’s true. You know you want them. And while MegaHouse has definitely been helping us out in that front, we all know we need more. Especially of the Pokemon themselves. Yeah, Ash is cool and all, but I want a huge scaled Charizard! Okay, so that one isn’t happening today. But we do have a ton of other goodies! Banpresto will be taking on the world of Pokemon in their lottery-exclusive Ichiban Kuji line. Aka “look at all these pretty things, their aftermarket price will kill you!” But man, that freaking Gengar is everything I want in life. There are even two Gengars! One in the mini figure line then a huge coming-out-of-the-ground one. Plus Pikachu x2 and Lucario, tiny plushes, keychains, and more. Check them all out in the gallery! [via White Noize]
