To me, there is no such thing as “too many Asuka figures.” How is that even possible? It’s like saying there are too many ice cream flavors. The more variety the better, and my Asuka army is ever growing. There weren’t that many figures of her at WonFest, but we did get Alter’s take and then this beauty–which is a bit of a curse given that it’s Volks. And, you know… Volks stopped making PVC.
That’s right, this lovely sculpt is a CharaGumin. WHY VOLKS? Whyyyyy? Now I’m going to have to spend and arm and a leg and get someone to paint this for me because I can’t not own it. Oh, and there’s going to be a matching Mari. Sigh, eating ramen every night to afford figures, here we come.

I imagine the conversation about these figures went something like this. “Well, Dave, that Gurren Lagann sure is a weird show. How about… we make… figures… that are weirder! And EVEN TACKIER?” “OMG BEST IDEA EVER? How about… robot Yoko… with… HER BUTT HANGING OUT?” Yup. That about sums it up.
Honestly, folks, I have no clue what is going on here. The first figure, a “Deforevo Color” Yoko, is a normal chibi figure except for the VERY oddly proportioned boots, the fact that she’s a colored resin kit, and the lovely cost of ¥8,400. With a February release. The second is…. a robot Yoko, with huge boobs and her butt hanging out, which will cost you a sweet ¥12,600…. and also comes out in February! Oh, and they might be exclusives like Aegis. I have no words, I’m too busy giggling like a 12 year old boy at a naked robot butt.

Honeycomb is a garage kit circle that doesn’t have a lot of work under their belt, but they rose rather spectacularly up the ranks with their Append Miku that was released nearly a year ago. Since then they’ve only had two other kits: a really awkward-looking Rise and Append Rin. Up until now they have had some really solid ideas but horrible body sculpts: while their Append Miku is undeniably beautiful, her torso is literally twice as wide as her hips.
It seems that their sculptor, Haya, has improved a lot, judging from Honeycomb’s 2012 Winter Wonder Festival offering of Nurse Miku. Sure, her arms are a little too long and thin, but they work with the stylized look. This is also a colored resin kit that theoretically you could assemble without painting–although, of course it will look better with a little sprucing up. While I’m sure the style won’t work for everyone, I really love this quirky version of Miku and it’s great to see a sculptor improve so much!

Since Chara Hobby is so close to Summer WonFest, there usually aren’t a whole lot of new items shown off. However, companies always seem to save some special announcements for this event, and they’re usually pretty interesting! I mean, everyone expected GSC to make Madoka figures. But some of the biggest surprises, like Kotobukiya making Persona 4 One Coin figures or Max Factory’s double dose of Samus, are saved for today! So hit the jump to check out all of the new goodies on display at Chara Hobby.
