    Winter WonFest 2017: (NSFW) Good Smile x Persona 5

    It’s almost Persona 5 time in the US! I mean, it was supposed to be Persona 5 time several days ago… probably good that it got delayed, because lemme tell you, I would NOT be here posting if it was out. I’d be playing. No regrets.

    Anyway, we have quite a few figures from GSC & Co! The Protagonist figma, a figma announcement for Anne, a surprise Morgana Nendoroid (kawaii af), and the Phat! Company Futaba Sakura.

    Now you may be asking, why is this NSFW Leah? Well lemme tell you. There is a GODDAMN MARA FIGMA. This is not a drill. This is real life. DREAMS COME TRUE.

    [UPDATE] Added Pixie figma. Are they going to do a whole monster line?

    Kotobukiya’s Winter WonFest 2017 Teasers

    Wonder Festival is less than a week away, and you know what that means–teaser time! I feel like every year these pop up sooner and sooner. It used to start on Wednesday and Thursday, now we get them at the beginning of the week! Well,the better to spread ’em out, I guess.

    First up is Kotobukiya with 4 teasers. Two are of figures we already knew about: the protagonist from Persona 5 and RyuuuZU from Clockwork Planet. Then we have two new ones! There’s an ArtFX+ of Arrow (from the show, not the comics) and a new Lancer from Fate/Grand Order. Which is basically Caster Extra in a swimsuit? I’ll be honest, I have not the faintest clue what is going on with Fate anymore.

    [UPDATE] We have some teaser artwork for the Ms Marvel Bishoujo! This will be on display at Toy Fair (which we will be covering in person!), but might also make a WF appearance.

    [UPDATE 2] We also have Bishoujo Katana’s teaser! Thanks Marissa~

    Feast Your Eyes Upon The Newest Persona 5 Figures

    While Persona 5 isn’t even out in the US yet (grumble grumble), it’s certainly reaching peak hype in Japan. And thus, it’s time for figures! We recently found out about Amakuni’s Anne, who was at the most recent Persona-themed event, along with Aquamarine’s Caroline and Justine who are newly sculpted.

    Then we have some new figures! Phat! Company surprised us all by showing off two sculpts: the main character and Futaba Sakura! Which means we have figures of most of the girls, something that’s (still) not even true for 3 or 4.
