Last Week In Preorders

Well it doesn’t seem right to say it’s this week when it was actually last week but Melbourne’s Animaga Convention meant I wasn’t able to get these delicious preorder updates to you last week.

Orange Rouge don’t look like they’re about to slow down any time soon with their ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ figures. This 1/8th scale figure of Shishiou based on his standard standing pose from the game has so many incredible details replicated from his card. His powerful yet slim legs, long wavering cape blowing in the wind, the even the nue creature on his back have been replicated wonderfully to create a perfect rendition of Shishiou and all his charms. Naturally a must have for any fans of him!

Orders through the Good Smile Online Shop also come with the bonus that all the previous Touken Ranbu scales have come with; a charm of the character’s sword!

The last few weeks have seen figure after figure from the series ‘God Eater 2: Rage Burst’ and no wonder; these characters look fantastic! The next figure is of the captain of Fenrir’s special force unit ‘Blood’ – Julius Visconti! This figure is based on the main visual illustration from the series and replicates all the finer details of Julius and his outfit. His God Arc is also included, and even better, he has interchangeable parts allowing you to choose between two different poses when you display him!

The world of Nendoroids is never boring for fans of the deformed style. Last week saw a Nendoroid of Karasuno High Boys’ Volleyball Club’s vice captain known as the ‘Indomitable Setter’ – Koushi Sugawara, from the incredibly popular Volleyball anime, ‘Haikyu!!’; the Shielder servant, Matthew Kyrielite, from the hugely popular -and addictive- mobage ‘Fate/Grand Order’; and from the game series ‘Kirby’, a matching Meta Knight using the same magnets as the previously released Kirby to create a massive range of poses!

These figures of Kanzaki H Aria, Mamiya Akari and KonoSuba’s Megumin show a lot of promise but close ups of the details show that they have a lot to learn still. Hopefully they’ll be able to improve quickly! At the least, they are picking some magnificent poses.

This new and updated version is the Pastel Co-De version and it looks fantastic! The changes in colour to her hair, the updated colouring on her swimsuit and even details as small as a new print on her canvas sneakers. The original was highly regarded and well sought after so if this version appeals to you, definitely get an order in at AmiAmi; who happen to be the only retailer carrying this item.

Also from Alter, the long awaited figure of Yasuhara Ema from ‘Shirobako’ has finally come up for order. After seeing her at expos painted for months, it was getting to a point where it was unclear when she would come up for order. But here she is!

To the world of Exclusive Cast Off items, there are two new Hobby Japan items up for order.

Yukime from ‘Jigoku Sensei Nube’ is being made by Amakuni and is looking fantastic and is by former Griffon sculptor, I-Con. Yukime’s overall aesthetic is very reminiscent of the 90s artstyle and this figure replicates that very well with the highly detailed hair strands, simplistic face and outfit. I really like the inclusion of the snowman for the base, as she is a yuki-onna/snow-woman. She also has alternate parts for her to be cast-off (not shown).

And from Alter we have the last figure in the ‘Hyakka Ryouran’ series; Yagyu Jubei Final Bride Ver. She looks fantastic. The details on her dress, her swords, even her hair and face are just incredible. The print all over is so sharp and the gradient makes what could’ve been a painfully white outfit, pop.
But the biggest shock of this item is that fact that she is cast-off. This will be Alter’s first example of a cast-off figure and to do this with the last of an ecchi figure series? Talk about finishing with a bang.

Often mistaken for a girl, and transformed by the trickster god Loki, Mizuki is shown here based on the illustration from the 5th installment of the recently finished series. This figure seems simple but every detail has been recreated magnificently by Chieri (who is behind incredible works such as Max Factory’s Belldandy) and even comes with an interchangeable hood. Loki’s long tail is also bendable, allowing you to shape it however you please! Native items are always Exclusive, but fortunately they do ship to selected international countries!

Wonder Festival 2012 Action Pics

Wonder Festival is underway in Tokyo as we speak and thanks to AmiAmi on Facebook, we have a whole swag of pictures to show you what goes on at this event.

For those in the dark, the Tokyo Wonder Festival is an event that runs every second year and is a show centered around figures for the public to buy. These kits are referred to as ‘garage kits’ while the figures tend to be sculptured from popular characters in anime, video games and general Japanese pop culture like Hatsune Miku, for example.

The festival is also known by its shorter, more popular name, WonFes. You can check out more at the official site here.
