My Collection + GSC’s Figure Photo Contest

So uh, I just realized that I haven’t shared recent pics of my collection in this blog yet even if I’ve shared it practically everywhere else! Sorry ’bout that!

To rectify that, I’ve created a brand new My Collection page where I’ll be sharing the most recent pictures of my collection.

You can find the link to the page in the quickbar up top!

My Wonder Festival 2011 Summer Wishlist

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!

GoodSmile Co.’s 1/8 Akiha Shishidou PVC figure from “Sora Kake Girl”!

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.
