More figure magazine scans from 2chan, this time it’s Mecha (Gunpla, RD) and Tokusatsu figure and plamo previews. These were scanned from Hobby Japan, Gundam Ace, Dengeki Hobby and Model Graphix magazines.
Robot Damashii Ka Signature Xi Gundam (10500 Yen, Pre-Order Start Date: Jan. 2013) Tamashii Web Shop Exclusive
The RD figure will be roughly in scale with other Robot Damashii (Side MS) releases. Check out the drastic size difference between the RX-78-2 Gundam (18 meters tall) and the Xi Gundam (26 meters tall)!
This year’s Wonder Festival Summer was held yesterday at Chiba, Japan. WonFes is a huge bi-annual event where sculptors display and sell Garage Kits and major figure manufacturers give a preview of the figures that they will be releasing in the coming months.
I felt that yesterday’s WonFes wasn’t as grand as previous ones, but as expected there were some fantastic figures on display that I’m looking forward to getting in the near future.
All of the figure images in this post were taken from Akiba Hobby and Hobby Stock Blog. Do check out their fantastic WonFes coverage posts!
And so without further ado, here’s my WonFes wishlist!
Preorders have opened for GSC‘s dynamic 1/8 scale PVC figure of Akiha Shishidou from the new sci-fi anime, Sora Kake Girl/Sora o Kakeru Shoujo (The Girl who Leapt Through Space). Coming from the director of My-Hime and My-Otome, SoraKake‘s definitely one of the most enjoyable shows this season with generous amounts of action, mecha, comedy and fanservice.
There’s a lot of appealing designs in SoraKake, and seeing that GSC’s one of the main sponsors I bet we’ll be seeing more figures of the show’s characters from them. I hope they’ll make one of Akiha in her plugsuit soon!
GSC’s Akiha Shishidou PVC will come out on July 2009 for 6,800 Yen.
As expected, the next figma to be opened for preorder is Tsukasa’s onee-san, Kagami Hiiragi! Of all Lucky☆Star characters she just has to be my favorite, it’s hard to resist those twintails and her tsundere attitude! The figure comes with alternate facial expressions and a Lucky Star tankōbon accessory. She’ll be available on September 2008 and will retail for 2,500 Yen.
