Based on one of Biya’s many illustrations of her, pre-orders are open for Union Creative’s take on the bikini-clad, parka-wearing, Yuna-chan! They said it themselves, focus was firmly placed on making her feminine body as soft as possible—it shows. Though it went unmentioned, the folds by her left underarm region is certainly a magnificent point.
We're once again celebrating the end of Golden Week (Why would you do that?) with our annual installment of MGW Finds. Prepare to get hit with a bout of nostalgia for simpler times, for the most part. All figures are swimsuit figures and that's not the spoiler. Two special items are included this year!
From Union Creative, comes “Guitar Sisters Mei Mei Backless Dress,” a 260mm-tall representation of hitomio16’s original illustration. As her name implies, Mei Mei wears a backless dress. It’s underneath her figure-hugging jersey and shadow brown jacket. Mei Mei has a clear onee-san vibe, but her personality seems softer as smiles while gently stroking her hair.
Originally released in 2011, MegaHouse’s Excellent Model RAHDX G.A.NEO Katejina Loos from Mobile Suit Victory Gundam is getting a re-release in late August 2023! Despite the immense passage of time for figures, Katejina’s sharp features and strong gaze is as remarkable as her pilot suit is yellow.
Pre-orders are now open for Good Smile’s 1,980th Nendoroid in Nendoroid Sadako from—
You have a, a movie for me to watch? I would, er watch, but um, I don’t know where the video machine’s cable is. I think I misplaced it a long— Oh you found it, thanks… Let’s watch then. But wait… um, was the tape rewound!? You see, my voice peaks like that and I become terribly upset when people don’t, um, do that. You know the saying, “Be kind, rewind” and all that. I don’t want to become upset while I still have work to do—why’s the floor wet?
Max Factory’s awesome figma Gold Ship from Umamusume: Pretty Derby is currently available for pre-order with a June release. With four expression parts and twelve hands, they really put a lot of effort into her design. Not only in her design, but color too, her regal red and ash gray paintwork is crisp. And for a bonus, orders from Good Smile Company and the CyStore come with an exclusive textured turf base.
Umamusume’s Daiwa Scarlet is now a cute Nendoroid by Good Smile Company. She comes with a green square base to emulate a turf which best suits her running pose. But it would all be lost if her faces weren’t as expressive as they were. You can feel her determination and grace as she blows a kiss.
Pre-orders have opened for Nendoroid Persicaria from the upcoming Girls’ Frontline spin-off, “NeuralCloud”. She comes with a few expressions which mostly show her gentle nature. But of course, her dere-dere expression with flattened ears is best! If you can’t wait for a tiny Persicaria, retailers and product photos are below.
Pre-orders have opened for Good Smile Company’s exclusive Nendoroid Shuna from That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. Orders are toward the end of November for her July 2023 release. But more info and product photos of Shuna are ahead.
Pre-orders are currently open for Union Creative’s serene Elaina from Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina. With a sweet smile on her face, Elaina is seated as she strokes the collar of her indigo boot. Her hands and fingers are gorgeous. And it’s subtle, but her nails have a realistic gloss too. Product photos and more await!
Now a Nendoroid is Shigure Ui, a lady wearing so many hats that she has enough tags to confuse WordPress—so like more than one. She might lack notable accessories, notable detail in her hair and outfit, but the expression in her eyes and eyebrows with her serious and confused faces are indeed notable. The best shops and bonus 2,000th commemorative Nendoroid base are ahead.
Pre-orders are now open for hololive Second Generation member Nakiri Ayame as a Nendoroid! She’s of course as cute as she usually is, but her cuteness has been concentrated in a mere 100mm. Her small size, doesn’t mean a lack of detail though. Ayame’s kimono is intricate as before.
