Nendoroid Hakase

WonFes featured the debut of many new figures!!
019

One of which was this Nendoroid!

The second Nendoroid to be released from Nichijou! I love getting more and more characters from a single series so I can pose them together – it’s even better when they come with some optional parts to use as well!

Although, at WonFes you only really get to look at the Nendoroid alone and not all the optional extras – today we’ll be taking a look at everything!
012
From the anime series, ‘Nichijou’:
Nendoroid Hakase!

From the anime series that was broadcast on NHK Education TV comes a Nendoroid of the self-proclaimed 8-year old genius – Shinonome Laboratory’s Hakase! She also comes with a load of optional parts that are great for displaying her together with the previous Nendoroid from the series, Nano Shinonome!
013
This is how she looks from the back!

Thanks to her really long lab coat, she has to be one of the most stable Nendoroids ever! (I’m pretty certain she won’t even need a stand :P) The little hair sticking up on her head also looks lovely!

She also comes with the Sakamoto the black cat, a Sakamono Pharmacy cardboard box and a low table!
014
I’m Hakase-nyan!

               レY^V^ヽl

Is this anything but adorable!?

This super cute version of Hakase can be made using the included cat ears, cat tail and bent arm parts! Her chest area is also fitted with a joint so you can pose her bent over slightly like this to complete the pose!  Wonderful!
015
A super happy expression!

Just looking at this expression makes me feel happy as well! She is so cute!! Plus she comes with her favorite swiss roll and mug, so you can see exactly why she is so happy!

She also has sitting parts which I love!  Σ(゚∀゚ )
The way she is sitting with her bare feet showing is so cute!
016
A crying face that’s just as cute!

It’s adorable!! It makes me want to take more snacks away from her so she cries some more!! The way her eyes are drawn along with the wavy mouth are just so wonderful!
017
Rock, paper, scissors!

You can recreate the rock, paper, scissors matches between Hakase and Nano! Now I finally understand why the shark hand was included with Nano! Great job planning team! Hakase even comes with a sleeve part being bitten by the shark!
018
The Shinonome household!

Hakase also comes with a teacup to recreate teatime in the Shinonome household! I definitely want to grab these two and display them above my desk just like this!

The photo looks great, but you really need to see and feel it in person to really experience how lovely they are! I feel so relaxed playing with these two!
012
From the anime series, ‘Nichijou’:

Nendoroid Hakase!

She’ll be up for preorder from the 17th August!

It’s still quite a while away, so the plans might still change though! Keep an eye on the GSC website, and if you have any preorder or sales inquiries, be sure to contact our partner shops!
 

Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛

Saber: Yukata ver.

The 2012 Summer WonFes Joint Product Exhibitions!

001

Between the 2nd and the 16th of August, the figures that were on display at the 2012 Summer Wonder Festival will be on display in various areas around Japan, including Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka! The figures are from many different companies, so come by and take a look if you’re in the area!!

You can find more information as well as the schedule here:
http://www.goodsmile.info/post/en/3489/

What a wonderful project! Even those who couldn’t make it to WonFes still get a second chance to take a look at all the latest prototype figures!!

The exhibition starts in Nagoya tomorrow!!

002
Today I had to sneak into the GSC Café to take a couple of photos of these two!!

These photos were taken in the karaoke room with my a Sony NEX-05! I normally always use my Sony Alpha, so these shots might seem a little different compared to normal.

These photos also let me pretend I’m doing karaoke after the summer festival together with the cute girls in yukatas! Adding that premise also gives a whole new feeling to the photos!😛
003
FREEing’s:
1/8th Scale Saber: Yukata ver.!

From the popular Fate/stay night series comes this 1/8th scale figure of Saber wearing a yukata perfect for the summer months! She is holding a folding fan in her one hand and a candied apple in the other!
005

It’s like she’s asking, “Want some?”

They way her hand is far out makes it feel like I’m out on a date with Saber and she is offering me some of the candied apple!! I can’t believe I got a date with Saber-san!!
004
This is how she looks from the back!

Even this side is more than cute enough!!! ・(ノД`)・゚・。

She is wearing a lovely blue yukata with darker blue morning glory prints along it.

I love seeing characters in yukatas, they always look so cute! I suppose part of the reason is because you don’t get to see them like this very often, but there must be more to it than that…
006
Her lovely hipline is visible through the yukata!

Your eyes just go straight for those lovely hips, don’t they? Often with kimonos or yukatas a towel will be placed between the bust and fabric to prevent them from standing out too much, so being able to make out the other areas of the body through the fabric becomes all the more important!
007
She also comes with a ponytail option!

An very nice extra option from FREEing!! The ponytail makes her look even more cuter to me – she looks more relaxed somehow!
011
Even the back of her neck is cute!

Saber looks like she has her attention elsewhere – I’m guessing there are more stands with some delicious festival food she wants to try!😛

You can also switch around which hands are holding the candied apple and the folding fan. (Well, you can on the prototype, we’ll have to wait and see if it is still possible on the final version!)
009
The second in the set is Ilya: Yukata ver.!

Ilya has a yukata with a similar shade of purple to her normal outfit, along with a lovely pink ribbon! She is posed in a much more exited pose as a lovely contrast to the calm Saber!
010
She even has a Berserker mask!

She looks so adorable in this pose! Rin and Sakura will also be following to complete the Fate girls Yukata collection, allowing you to keep all four of them by your side, all wearing the yukatas that come directly from the designs in the game!

(C) 2002-2006 TYPE-MOON

This is what I see when I get up from my desk!

001
Right in front of me is Max Factory!

Right here we have Nitouhei! We’re on the same floor with seats right next to each other now, so I can constantly spy on what he is up to! In fact, I can see he has a figure watching over him that I want to take a look at!
002
Max Factory’s:
1/7th Scale Luka Megurine: Tony Ver.!

A 1/7th scale figure of Luka based on popular illustrator Tony’s illustrations, following on from the previously released Miku figure! The unique transparent feeling that accompany Tony’s illustrations has been faithfully recreated on a very sexy figure that pulls out Luka’s charms with a very provocative pose.

Tony’s Luka went on sale on the 31st July! (`・ω・´)

She should be on sale at all of our partner shops at this very moment, so if you like this review you can head out and grab her today!
007
The sculpting was done by Chieri!

The sculpting is incredible!! I absolutely love Chieri’s work!!!

The way her body has been sculpted makes it look like it’ll feel just like real skin if you were to touch it! The see-though appearance and paintwork also look just like they did on the prototype! Great work to everyone on the manufacturing team!

004
This is how she looks from the back!

The long drapes of her skirt and her long hair both look beautiful from the back! Also take a look at the delicate little fingers holding the golden mike in the air!
003
That lovely transparent appearance!

Looking at the blue gradient in her eyes also sucks me in completely… I can’t believe they are done with stamp printing with this much detail! They also have a slightly glossy appearance which looks great!!

006
Her hair uses clear parts!

Definitely one of the highlight’s of Tony’s Luka is her beautiful hair, which is colored with a transparent gradient that gradually gets more see-through as it goes toward the tips!

Miku had a more glossy effect to her hair which made it much shinier, while Luka has a matte coating which gives her a more relaxed appearance!
005
The base is shaped like a record!

There are even small little grooves along the record, carefully sculpted onto the base! A base like this was such a great idea, and apparently it came from MAX Watanabe himself!
008
Wonderful knee high socks!!

The patterns on the edges of the socks along with the gold trim are also absolutely stunning! The little peek at her stomach is also quite a treat!
009
She looks great displayed with Miku!

Such bright colors! They compliment each other so nicely!

Seeing these two together really makes me want to see a Rin-chan coming as well though… let’s all plead of Max Factory to bring us Rin-chan next!
010
Max Factory’s:
1/7th Scale Luka Megurine: Tony Ver.!

 
She is on sale in stores now!!(`・ω・´)
Be sure to contact our partner shops if you have any sales queries!

 
But that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again next week!! (・∀・)ノ゛

The WonFes New Figure Exhibitions!

008

From the 2nd August till the 16th August, the new figures that were on display at the Summer Wonder Festival 2012 will be on display in various locations around Japan including Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka! Many of the companies who had figures on display are taking part, so there are lots of figures to be seen!!

The full schedule can be found on the website below. (Japanese)

http://www.whl4u.jp/tour.html

What a lovely project! Now anyone who couldn’t make it to WonFes still has a chance to see some of the lovely figures that were on display!

          ______  
        /:υ::─ニjjニ─ヾ 
      /::li:( ○)三 ( ○)\   ”Hold on…!
      (:::||:: (__人__))::|    That means all the prototypes won’t be here!”
    〃 ):::::.   |r┬-| li::/
      /: : ::: l\`ー ‘/j: ::ヽ
    \ヽ :ヽ: : : 7ヽ />: ::r:\ 

That could become quite a problem…
I get the feeling it might be hard to continue with my work while all the prototypes are on tour, but I guess as long as everyone is enjoying them that is the most important part!

I’ll figure out something I can do!!😛
001
But anyway, let me grab some photos before the figures are taken away!

From ‘Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai’:
1/7th Scale Sena Kashiwazaki!

From the popular light novel series “Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai” comes a 1/7th scale figure of Sena Kashiwazaki, the girl who would be perfect if it wasn’t for her personality! Sena has great grades and excels at sports, she has lovely blond hair, blue eyes and big breasts – but at the same time she has a really stuck-up and bossy personality.
003

This is how she looks from the back!

Her skin looks so squishy and touchable, and those curves are just fantastic!! Also take a look at how realistic the area between her thighs and calves look!
002
She has such a grumpy expression!

Definitely not the kind of expression you would normally expect to see on a figure of a cute girl. The pose is taken directly from the cover of the second volume of the light novel!
009
This is how she looks from the right side!

From this side you can can be reminded of why Yozora calls her ‘meat’ – just look at her huge bust! Not that I’m complaining.😛 I’m sure there are many Sena fans that would be happy to display her in their rooms displayed at this angle!
004
The way the skirt flutters up is amazing!

I hesitate to mention the thighs again, but just look at the triangle formed between the two thighs – it’s wonderful! I almost can’t resist trying to put my hand through…

If there is anyone out there that doesn’t feel the same kind of urge, I think we need to sit down and have a long debate as to why until one of us gives in – I’m fairly confident I’ll win though!!  (`・ω・´)
007
A close-up on her body!

There really is nothing to criticize! I’m quite a fan of this style of character, so I looked at her quite critically, but there is nothing that even remotely disappoints!

Completely unrelated, but while we were looking at this picture I had a 10 minute conversation with Oonoshi about boobies! What a wonderful company Good Smile is! (Granted, she mostly just listened while I prattled on… :P)
006
She body makes a lovely S-shape!

The lively pose is really great to look at from all sorts of angles, not to mention super sexy!!  From the skirt that you just can’t see underneath to the hip-line you can make out from underneath her skirt – the figure is such a tease!

The high socks and loafer shoes you’d expect to see on most high school girls are also absolutely lovely!
005

Ooh! So close!
