Misaka Mikoto from To Aru Kagaku no Railgun seems to be the reigning champ of swimsuit figures. This is odd for so many reasons: first off, there’s nothing particularly special about her character design, and let’s face it: usually characters who get a lot of swimsuit figures are busty (Kanu, Tamaki, etc) or have other special attributes like craazy colored hair or wild personalities. Second, the franchise’s popularity has pretty much peaked: it doesn’t have the lasting longevity of something like Haruhi, and we don’t even get many figures of her!
But for some reason, companies keep putting out figures of Misaka in beach ware: two companies in particular, Wave and Kotobukiya, and usually as Dengeki exclusives. Last time it was for Dengeki’s 20th anniversary, and this figure too will be a Dengeki exclusive. It’s actually quite nice, with two faces and a cast-offable shirt. But who is the manufacturer? It’s a mystery! My money is on Koto, because the sculpt seems a bit too intricate for Wave, but only time will tell.

Well, this is shocking! Not because Vividred Operation is unpopular–quite the opposite, actually, I’m shocked it took Wave so long to pick up the cast for their Beach Queens line. I mean, they announced a figure of Sasami Tsukuyomi before this. Sasami, who is almost always in pajamas, over Vividred Operation, a show where the main cast never wears pants. Yeah.
Anyway, all the main girls are getting Beach Queens! Akane Isshiki, Rei Kuroki, Aoi Futaba, Wakaba Saegusa and Himawari Shinomiya will all be made into miniatureform for your viewing and purchasing delight sometime in the near future. Truly thrilling news!

If there is one recent anime that seemed totally destined for Wave’s bikini-clad Beach Queens line, it was Medaka Box since the plot revolves around the giant boobs of the main character or some such. Strangely enough they held off a long time on this announcement: even Max Factory, who tend to be way behind the curve, beat them to it!
Oh, and it’s not just Medaka Kurokami who will be getting the Beach Queens treatment: Hansode Shiranui will be as well. As a short, bubbly loli she’s pretty much the exact opposite of Medaka so they’ll make an interesting duo.

It was only a few days ago that Wave announced a Beach Queen of Noumi from Little Busters! and already we are getting a look at her sculpt. As you’d expect from the character Noumi is full of energy: in fact, her feet aren’t even on the ground! I must admit that the swimsuit isn’t exactly what I pictured her in but overall I think she looks adorable. I love that they kept her hat on and the hair looks great: my only concern is that her eyes are a little far apart, but she isn’t even painted yet so this is obviously not the final face and likely won’t be an issue once we see the finished prototype.

Welcome to the return of the roundup! Sadly we here at Plastikitty got hit by a nasty spring flu so we’ve been out of commission in terms of the roundup for a few weeks, but now we’re back in business! Though technically it’s the roundup for the week of 3/29~4/4 we’re also featuring some of the best figures from the week before as well.
So what do we have in store? Tons of pretty ladies! In fact we’ve got releases from almost all the major manufacturers, including some that I have been really looking forward to. Check them all out after the jump!

Oh, Wave, not every single character needs to be shoved into a swimsuit and put into your Beach Queens line. Especially not ones that are usually, you know, clad head to toe in baggy floral pajamas. But Wave doesn’t seem to really pay attention to characters: ratings are what they go after, and Sasami-san@Ganbaranai is apparently popular enough to warrant an addition into the Beach Queens line. So expect miss Tsukuyomi to make an appearance in swimwear sometime in the near future!

Wave sure does love making the whole cast of an anime into tiny swimsuit figures, so when they showed off Rin Natsume from Little Busters! you just knew there were going to be more. And given the popularity of Noumi Kudryavka, it seemed clear that she would be the next choice and… she is! Surprise! I bet we’ll also get at least Komari, and possibly Sasami and Saya, maybe even the much-neglected Mio!

AmiAmi has this nasty habit of combining our orders into big glumps that overlap between months. So, for example, we might not get some of our January stuff until the beginning of March (yet mysteriously it will be with not just February but March items as well). You may have noticed that we skipped a January loot post: well, that’s because we didn’t even get all our figures from it until a few days ago!
But thankfully January and February seemed to be smaller months than most, so we’re just going to combine them into a mega loot post! Check it all out after the jump.

Love Live! School Idol Project is kind of like IDOLM@STER, only you know… less popular. But still full of cute girls! We don’t have a ton of figures from it, though Good Smile announced a figure of Honoka and Bandai has that disappearing Figuarts Zero of her. But now, unsurprisingly (since they snatch up any license they can get their paws on) Wave is adding them to the Beach Queens line!
Well, not all of them. Honoka Kousaka, Umi Sonoda and Kotori Minami are the only girls announced so far. I really hope we get Niko and Eri as well!

Maou from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha sure is popular recently! She got a Nendoroid, a figure from Kotobukiya, and now Wave is taking her on as well–though in what form, they haven’t said. Given that this is Wave I can almost guarantee that it will be a Beach Queen. Given Maou’s proportions I’m sure this will make many fans very happy, but personally I prefer her clothed! Even then she isn’t exactly the most demure lady… but really, I can’t be displeased with more demon girls.
