We’ve already got some news from Wonder Festival summer edition!
You can check out what’s known up til now here.
Today I want to make a short summary of what I’m expecting the most from new announcements and from updates of figures announced previously.
Let’s begin with new figures!
- A bunch of Haikyuu!! nendoroids (Iwa-chan among them!)
- Spice and Wolf – Holo (nendoroid)An amazing announcement. You may laugh, but this one nendoroid made this Wonfes the best ever for me! Hopefully GSC will release her quickly!
- Play Arts Kai Sephiroth (Square Enix)I love Final Fantasy so much! I felt they would finaly make Sphiroth too because of the announced remake. I guess fans already predicted his release, but SE kept us unsure up til now.
- Full Metal Alchemist Edward Erlic and Roy Mustang ARTFX J (Kotobukiya)Something that completely surprised me. I’m overjoyed! FMA is one of my first mangas/anime and I still love it. It’s been so long, but we’ll finally get proper figures. Instant pre-order!
- Persona 3 & Perosna 5 Shujinkou figmas (Max Factory)
- Fate/Grand Order Saber (Good Smile Company)This time there were so many Fate/GO figures announced! I’m glad we got something more than 100000th Saber. Ok this one is Saber too, but completely different and so mesmerizing!
- Lots of other Fate/GO figures!What I like the most is that most characters come as different figure types; nendoroids, figmas, scales. Some figures were announced by more than one manufacturer [Assassin(Ques Q and MF), Jeanne (MF, Flare, Alter) etc.). You can choose the one you like the most. This will definitely help if you don’t want to spend too much money.
- 7th Dragon III – Mage (Max Factory)
- Amanchu! – Kohinata Hikari (Aquamarine)High hopes for nendoroids from this series. I love the atmosphere and the derpy faces in the series!
- Odin Sphere: Leifdrasir – Gwendolyn (Flare)
- Kabaneri of the iron fortress – Mumei figures (GSC, MF)We get Mumei in 3 forms: nendoroid, figma and scale. I prefer nendo or figma, because I don’t like Mumei’s scale cheerful expression. It doesn’t suit her fighting pose (which is kinda strange too).
All right, I think that’s it for me. Let’s move on to updatet prototypes.
- Ononoki Yotsugi (Good Smile Company)The painted prototype looks so good (and so expensive…). I know I need her, I know…
- Saber – Haregi ver. (Aniplex)I’m just speechless. This figure is stunning! She’s another Aniplex exlusive so it’ll be hard to get her without a proxy. And I’m sure the aftermarket price will be…way too high.
- Meiko & Kaito – Hanairogoromo ver. (Aniplex)I’m a bit dissapointed with Meiko. I don’t like the cherry branch at all. I thought I’d get her to accompany Miku, but I’m hesitant right now. Both will be available through AmiAmi!
- 7th Dragon III: Samurai (Max Factory)The face looks…weird. But it’s MF so I’m rather calm about the final product.
- Arpeggio of Blue Steel figmas
- Odin Sphere and Oboro Muramasa parforms (Phat Company)
I think I mentioned all figures, that caught my eye this summer. That’s quite a long list so I guess I have to start saving up money already ><
Get your wallets ready!
