IS: Infinite Stratos – Charlotte Dunois – B-style – 1/4 – Bare Leg Bunny Ver. (FREEing)
Charlotte is probably one of my favorite girls from IS. This figure is just too cute. And while I personally don’t buy 1/4 scale bunny figures, I think I prefer the bare leg versions.
Tejina-senpai – B-style – 1/4 – Bunny Ver. (FREEing)
Tejina is looking like a proper magician’s assistant. Being a show about magic, they could added some accessories to the figure — a bunny girl pulling a bunny out of a hat would have been one for the books. Even just a magician’s hat or wand could have given this figure more character.
The anime was helluva lot of fun. The figure is looking like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen pretty much like what you see in the anime. If you’re pre-ordering just for the boobies, what more could you ask for?
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya: Prisma☆Phantasm – Illyasviel von Einzbern – Magical Ruby – 1/7 (Wanderer) | Wink Version
While I am still on the market for an Illya figure, this is one is still not cutting it. The face feels kind of off. The colors are looking nice. I’m a bit wary of the price as it is on the pricier side. The quality of Wanderer has also been quite questionable on their previous releases.
The exclusive wink version can be bought at the Wanderer Online Shop.
Evangelion Shin Gekijouban – Makinami Mari Illustrious – Summer Queens – 1/8 (Our Treasure)
Way too simplistic for a scale figure and definitely not buying at that price. This looks just a little bit better than a prize figure. If you want to customize it though, there’s an even cheaper partially-painted version that you can pre-order.
Steins;Gate – Makise Kurisu – 1/7 (Alphamax)
This is a reissue and while I do love Steins;Gate, I have never bought any of their figures yet. I don’t know if they look better in real life but I always seem to have a problem with how Christina’s eyes look in the promotional photos.
My Little Pony – Princess Luna – Bishoujo Statue – My Little Pony Bishoujo Series – 1/7 (Kotobukiya)
Do you have a thing for ponies? Well, I don’t.
Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi – Freia – KD Colle – 1/7 – Light Novel Ver. (Kadokawa)
I knew it was only a matter of time before they made figures from this series. I’m actually surprised they didn’t make it hentai figures. Still, a little too lewd for my tastes. There’s talk on MFC about her top being removable but the promotional photos don’t show anything and it is not listed as a cast off.
Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi – Setsuna – KD Colle – 1/7 – Light Novel Ver. (Kadokawa)
While Freia flaunts her assets, Setsuna won’t be far behind. The tail looks kind of awkward though. It just looks so unnatural how it’s protruding from her back. But did I mention they come with alternate facial expressions?
Suketto Sanjou! – Sandy Bash – 1/6 – Star Mask Ver. (A+)
I didn’t think it was at first but apparently this is from a hentai and the top can be cast off.
Sword Art Online – Kirigaya Suguha – 1/7 – Navy/White Swimsuit ver. (Q-six)
Navy blue or white? They are priced the same but the white swimsuit is special as it has a blushing effect. A user on MFC confirmed this as translated from the Q-six website. If you love the character, go for it but it looks pretty plain for a scale figure.
Dead or Alive 6 – Nico – 1/7 – Fuzichoco Ver. (Wonderful Works)
Steep price on this one and it’s hard to tell from the prototype photos if she’s going to be good. The base looks nice. The figure looks gimmicky. with Nico’s standard pose Not sure how the hair would look like in person but right now, it’s looking very much like plastic which isn’t good.
xxxHolic – Ichihara Yuuko – China Dress Statue Series – 1/7 – China Dress ver. (Emontoys)
I have not watched or read xxxHolic but this figure has a certain charm to it. There’s also a lot of detail going on here. Just look at the level of detail on the dress and the stockings. Heck, check out the carvings and other details on the bench. There are butterflies and smoke effects.
RWBY – Yang Xiao Long – Nendoroid (#1590) (Good Smile Company)
Maybe I should give RWBY a gander. I’m not sure if I’m missing out.
I started the NekoFigs blog in January 2021, 5 years after I’ve started collecting anime figures. It all started with one humble prize figure of Saber Lily which was bought on a whim. Now, I face the big problem of how to deal with over 200 empty boxes.
