Wonfes 2017 Summer

Hello there!

Unfortunately I don’t have much time to post more reviews, but I’ll try to get to it soon.

For now some of Wonfes ups and downs for me!

Twice a year every figure collector holds his breath and awaints the newest announcements. One of these days has come today.

I must say, that there aren’t many announcements this time that made me really excited. But there are figures that took me by surprise and figures that completely destroyed my hopes.

I’m not surprised that this Wonfes is too dominated by Fate series. GSC, MF, ALter and more announced tons of Fate figures. Other than that there’s a lot of KanColle (again), Saekano, tons of new Mikus and of course Touken Ranbu. Fortunately the companies didn’t forget about less popular series.

As every top list you can find on this blog this one is also a subjective choice of mine.

Let’s start with the very end of my tops

11# Odin Sphere – Mercedes (Phat! Company)

I just love these Phat’s parforms. They are so cute I can’t say no to them!

10# Oikawa Tooru Unifor Ver. nendoroid

Tooru-chan striking again!

602156

9# Slayers -Lina nendoroid

Finally some love to one of my beloved childhood series!

604438

8# Nier Automata – YorHa (Square Enix/Flare)

Finally SE lets someone else make their figures. Flare is a great choice here!

7# D.Gray-Man – Kanda Yuu (Aniplex)

Another Aniplex exclusive coming! They really know how to get my money.

460688

6# Fate/Grand Order – Ishtar (Aniplex)

And again exclusive. Announced some time ago and finally with a prototype! I know I won’t get her, additional costs like shipping and customs would make me a beggar. Still she looks amazing!

549624

5# Kakegurui – Jabami Yumeko (Kotobukiya)

An amazing looking prototype. I got hooked on the anime, it’s really exciting (a bit strange though) so I’m happy to see a fabolous Yumeko so soon.

4# Fate/Grand Order – Lancer (Orange Rouge)

Finally a proper scale of the second best servant ever ❤

#3 Odin Sphere – Gwendolyn (aquamarine)

The best Gwen so far. The pose is just awesome, so dynamic! Can’t wait to see the painted prototype. Do your best Aquamarine!

#2 Fate/Stay Night – Matou Sakura (Aniplex)

Please Aniplex stop…you just know that I love kimonos, don’t you?

1# Fate/Grand Order – Gilgamesh (Myethos)

Ok, Myethos wins the whole show. The most  exciting piece of this Wonfes’!
Myethos is a chinese company, so most of their products aren’t on the MFC database, but they are a really fascinating company. Their projects are really creative and the quality is also very good. I think you could compare them with Kotobukiya. Anyways, just take my money Myethos!

But unfortunately there are some complete failures too. Actually I think this is the first time ever I felt so dissappointed with Wonfes’ announcements

A super Sexy Gilgamesh, that was announced last year I suppose, finally gets a paited prototype! Just take my mo….Uhm…..what the hell is this?!

And a figure that I got just too excited about and that is the biggest let down ever.

I love Code Geass and C.C. is my holy waifu, so I was really happy about getting a proper figure with some lovely pose from the anime…Well, MegaHouse crushed all my hopes. I know that boobs sell the best, but making a character look secy at a push is just not my taste. MH tends to do that too often lately. Just a big NO!

In the end there’s nothing too unexpected about this WF edition. But out of all the figures announced I was able to find the ones I really love. Fortunately not too many, my wallet is still safe!

Hope you also found some exciting figures this time!

Gundam UC – Audrey Burne – 1/8 scale

Hello everyone!

Today I want to review my holiest grail ever! The main (and the best) character from Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn – Audrey Burne, or rather Princess Mineva Lao Zabi. I won’t spoil the fun of watching the series so let’s stop the introduction at that. I bought her at Mandarake, for a quite decent price, incl shipping she cost me 10k yen. I was looking for her for around a year and I’m so glad I finally got her. She’s manufactured by Alpha x Omega – a collaboration of MegaHouse and Alter, which is rather surprising since Alter is like a guru in figure manufacturing and MegaHouse, whose quality is decent, but can’t even be compared to Alter’s. Let’s see what we get out of this collab!

The box is rather simple, but the colors are nice.

She comes with two bodies, two haros and two pegs to attach them.

The base is transparent and blue with Gundam UC logo on it. Audrey is attached with one leg, but the figure is very stable, or rather was because I was stupid enough to break one of the two pegs while changing the bodies :v Still, even with one peg she is quite stable.

I like figures with more than one display option, but sometimes the parts aren’t easy to change, or you can’t remove them at all. This figure has absolutely no issues with that.

The pose is just beautiful. Audrey looks so delicate and looks like she’s floating in the air.

The details are just like expected of Alter. Everything from the sculpt to the painting is just perfect. At least about Audrey, Haros aren’t this perfect, but not bad at all. Let’s take a look at them first.

The black lines are uneven and there’s almost no shading. But Haro is not so important for me.

Audrey is soo beautiful. I love her the most of all my figures.

Aaaah, I love everything about her. Her face is really beautiful. It was definitely worth waiting so long to get her. I must say, this is probably the first fugure I was ready to really overpay for. I really hope there’ll be more decent Gundam UC figures in the future, I especially wait for Banagher. As for Audrey, I give her 10/10, she definitely deserves it.

Greets!
