Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata Archive

  • I remember the dark times when Good Smile Company didn’t come to US events. Thankfully those days are over, because their booth is usually the toy highlight of any convention! And they really brought it for NYCC this year with not one but two separate booth displays. They had a lot of brand-new goodies, like the Anniversary Miku (look at that hair!!), figma Genji, and the sculpt for the Breath of the Wild Guardian Nendoroid. It’s always nice to be able to see figures in person, it’s quite a different experience–for example, I wasn’t really sold on Marie Rose’s colors at all when the promotional shots came out, but I was totally won over when I finally got to see her. She might be coming to my pre-order list!

  • Every Wonder Festival I think to myself “there can’t possibly be even more Nendoroids at the next WonFest.” Then, like magic, the Nendo Creep happens and we get at least 5-10 more than last year at the next event. It’s a plague, a really cute plastic plague. I think they’re multiplying on their own at this point. This year we have a bounty of Nendos, so let’s get into it. We’ve got Ariel, Astolfo, Mordred, Lina Inverse, Yumeko Jabami from Kakegurui, Elf Yamada from Eromanga Sensei, Portal 2, KanColle, Meitantei Conan, Beatrice from Re;Zero, Wonder Woman, Overwatch, Mega Man, The Snack World, Sword Art Online, Fullmetal Alchemist, and so much more. They are all named in the gallery below for your viewing pleasure. And don’t forget we’ve already seen Nendos from Orange Rouge, Pokemon, Breath of the Wild, and Vocaloid! Which one are you looking forward to the most? [via the Wonderful Hobby Life For You site and King Junker’s Twitter]

  • AlphaMax never fails to disappoint me. Whether it’s with the creative new ecchi art they’ve picked up (unlike some companies *cough*native*cough* they seem to remember generally what human women are shaped like), or their cute/sexy licensed figures. This year we have a great mix with a big focus on the Fate franchise. Swimsuit Jeanne d’Arc & Saber Extra and the lingerie Saber & Saber Extra sets look so cute! We also got a lovely Sora Kasugano. Check out all their new goodies in the gallery! [UPDATE] Added a few extra girls from moyeo, post is now NSFW [via Dengeki]

  • 2018 seems like it is going to be the Year of the Sitting Figures for Good Smile. A shocking amount of their sculpts are just hanging around! I actually prefer sitting gals (easier to display a full shelf with height variety) so it’s good news for me. We saw a few of their figures already, like the ones at Fate/History and Mikus, but we got a lot more. Quite a few of their announcements are now sculpted: the “old” version of Kiss-Shot, birthday Rem, Megumi Katou, the Hot Limit girls (Sonico, Uzuki, & Eriri), Anastasia from Cinderella Girls, Izetta, Phosphophyllite, and Kouhai-chan. But the new announcements are what grabbed my attention. We have a wedding Louise (!! when was the last time she got a figure), Shuvi Dola from No Game No Life, Emilia from Re;Zero, and Akari Kawamoto. Oh, and uh… a Groot & Rocket Raccoon scaled figure. [UPDATE] Added the Your Name duo to the gallery [via whl4u]

  • As usual, Max Factory had a small but excellently sculpted bundle of figures for Wonder Festival. We’ve seen the Mikus (my favorite from them), but there’s lots more like… Rurouni Kenshin? So many surprise boys at this event! The Eriri and Megumi from Saenai Heroine are finally sculpted, as is Ai-chan from Tawawa on Monday whose breasts seem to be escaping from her shirt, poor dear. Their Marie Rose is finally painted and… I no longer want her? Just a garish color combo. In other fighting game news, they are doing a Renewal version of their infamous Kasumi. Morrigan when?! Iowa is also painted, along with the tiny Kemono Friends figures. For announcements, we have Jeanne d’Arc Alter dress version, whose art is just stunning. [via whl4u]

  • Aniplex had some truly epic figures on display this year. All of their teaser girls were on display, and they totally stole the show! The detail of Devil Homura, Asuna, and Jeanne d’Arc is truly astounding. But even their simpler girls, like the Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata maiko line, was pretty stunning. Saenai seems so popular, because they also had a casual Megumi. They have a second figure of Kaori Miyazono from Your Lie In April, and an announcement for the beautiful Ishtar from Fate/Grand Order. Who appears to be Rin. Seriously, what is up with F/GO!? [via Aniplex’s Twitter]

  • Max Factory is one of my favorite companies, but they’re certainly not a super productive one. They only had a few scaled figures on hand at WonFest, but they were lovely! Like that bike racing Miku: so cute! There’s also a Luka figure if you’re all Miku’d out. Wedding Lingerie Lala is finally here, and Murakumo from KanColle is painted. We also have 3 Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata announcements (so many from them and GSC!): Utaha, Eriri, and Megumi. Oh, and there’s a surprise Devilman outta nowhere. A large portion of their display is dedicated to the small figures, like their Love Live figFIX and the model kit Plamax (Dirty Pair!). Plus we had all those Fate/Grand Order figures from earlier. [UPDATE] We have a picture of their Iowa! [via whl4u]

  • It seems like every year Good Smile goes bigger and bigger. We’ve already seen their Fate/Grand Order scales, but they have over 25 others at the event. So let’s just dive right in! A massive amount of the announcements are from Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata: Utaha Kasumigaoka, Eriri Spencer Sawamura, Michiru Hyoudou, and Megumi Katou are all getting swimsuit figures. There will also be a figure of Eriri in the very strange ‘Hot Limit’ line that also includes Uzuki Shimamura (with floating boobs!) and Sonico. Speaking of Sonico, her wedding figure is painted. So disappointed: I wish she was less tacky, because the sculpt is gorgeous. Moving on, we have Albedo painted, along with the teased Miku Hatsune and Vira. Their Rem from Re:Zero will of course have a matching Ram, and they’ll give us (of course) a second Rem–the birthday cake version. From KanColle there’s Warspite and Shigure, and some other weapon-wielding ladies like Arisa from Shadowverse & Izetta from Shuumatsu no Izetta. Both Mitsuha Miyamizu and Taki Tachibana from Kimi no Na wa will also be getting figures. Not enough? Well, there’s more! Wilhelmina and Mei Irizaki from High School Fleet, an amazing diorama from Dead Dead Demon’s Dededededestruction, Sayaka & Kyouko,¬†Phosphophyllite from Houseki no Kuni. Damn, that’s a lot of figures! [via whl4u]

  • FREEing is such a strange mix of super large bunny girls, teeny tiny swimsuit girls, random yukata girls, and then the occasional super-detailed high quality figure. Like, I never know what to expect from them… but at the same time I know exactly what to expect. This year we’ve got big ladies from God Eater, Danmachi, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, Expelled from Paradise, and Yatterman. Then there are tiny Vocaloids and IDOLM@STER girls. Plus, you know, a regular-sized Asuna and several others, and then (randomly) a super high quality Senritsu no Tatsumaki from One Punch Man. What is this company?? And where are the hundreds of bunny girls announcements? [via Dengeki]

  • Sometimes I feel like Wonder Festival should change its name to Nendoroid Festival. We’ve already seen a TON so far tonight: all the boys from Orange Rouge, Kantai Collection, IDOLM@STER, the Li announcement, and the new Link. But there are over 35 more to come. So let’s get right to it! We’ve got a Fate/Stay Night triple threat (Shielder, Caster, & Lancer), MetaKnight, Koutetsujou no Kabaneri, Macross Delta, Mazinger Z, Miku Hatsune, Mahou Tsukai no Yome, Biohazard, Boku no Hero Academia, High School Fleet, Touhou Project, Rockman.exe, Fire Emblem, Deadpool, Suicide Squad, Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o!, The King of Fighters (Mai, what a surprise!), Thunderbolt Fantasy, Madoka Magica, Girls und Panzer, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, and so much more. We also have the results of the Nendoroid request poll, which is why we got Li and Kiso. We’ll also be getting Edward Elric, Erwin Smith, and (finally) Holo! [via Wonderful Hobby Life]
