This week was an odd but interesting one for figure-orders. For the first half, we had literally nothing but NSFW figures and re-releases go up for order, which is unusual to say the least! Usually we get one or 2 NSFW figures per a roundup, but this week 4 went up within a few days of each other. Then we got spammed with surprise re-releases, one of which I really didn’t expect!
As the week went on we got some “normal” additions to the pre-order lineup, like a… very busty beach queen? Followed up by two figures who were both re-releases AND NSFW! What is this, boob week? Then, to round off the week, we got MORE RE-RELEASES. Thankfully, Kotobukiya must have seen what an odd week it was because they offered up some sexy boys. Funnily enough, it ended up not being the week of boobs or the week of re-releases, but the week of Griffon! Out of the 18 figures that went up for order, a whopping 7 of them were from Griffon. So what did we get this week? Hit the jump and find out!

The 51st All Japan Mokei Hobby Show is mainly for model kits of all shapes and sizes: cars, fantasy vehicles, robots, you name it they have it! Figures don’t usually make a huge appearance, but a few good things sneak in from the companies that make kits (i.e. Kotobukiya and Wave). And surprisingly, most of it was new! We got the first colored image of Kotobukiya’s gorgeous Yui Takamura from Muv-Luv, but aside from that it was brand-spanking-new items.
One of the best announcements is that Kotobukiya will be adding Ika Musume to their kit line inspired by Hoi-Hoi-san. She looks adorable here, and having just built the Saber-san kit (which we will have a review of soon!) I can safely say that she’ll be very well-made.
Then we have a ton of Beach Queen announcements from Wave. Infinite Stratos got three new additions: Cecilia Alcott, Charlotte Dunois, and Fang Lin Yen. I’m not a huge fan of the IS designs, but Fang looks adorable and the outfits look quite nice on all 3. Then we saw the second A Channel Beach Queen, Yuuko, who (amazingly) is as busty as the IS girls! They also had announcements without sculpts for tons of new figures: Minko, Yuina and Nako from Hanasaku Iroha, Chiriko from AnoHana, and 2 different versions of Himari from Mawaru Penguindrum. Two? Well, one of them is labeled the “Princess of Crystal” version, though I have no clue what that means!
Wave also had one more trick up their sleeve: a model kit car that comes with two figures! So it’s a kit and a scaled figure set, all rolled up into one. The best news? It’s a NERV car from Evangelion, and we’re getting a tiny Asuka and *drumroll* MISATO! You know what the world needs? A lot more figures of Misato.
