Our first figma review after over a year (!?) is of Yui Takamura, one of the lead characters from the show and novel series Muv Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse. I initially didn’t like Yui that much at the start of the series but by the end, she had grown on me and I’m glad I got a figma version of her at least. Yui was released at arou [...]
After watching just a few episodes of the well received Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica anime, Luth and I wanted figures of the girls. Nice, intricately detailed figures in dynamic and fancy poses with their weapons out. There were figures alright, huge amounts of them in fact, but nothing elaborate enough to really convince us to hit any preorder but [...]
Welcome back to another edition of Wonfes Wishlist brought to you by your hosts: Luth and Zai! The bi-yearly festival of figures is almost upon us on Feburary 10th and there’s a lot of sculpts to look forward to and it seems some of the major manufacturers appear to be holding back on showing off brand new sculpts and licenses, possibly so th [...]
Ever since watching the first couple of episodes of Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko I’d wanted a figure of the absolutely adorable Touwa Erio. I waited and waited and no figure was announced that I felt truly captured Erio in figure form.. although I did happen to make an impulse buy of an Erio figure at Wonder Festival back in 2011 and while tha [...]
One thing I try to do with every review is take at least one really ‘good’ shot that tries to push my creativity and skills as a photographer. I usually end up spending more time getting that special shot than all of the other review shots combined, haha. But it’s a great way to really get to know a figure when you’re trying [...]
When I first saw the 2011 variation of Racing Miku’s designs I instantly hoped there would be a figma or figure version of her. When the figma did come out, it was awesome. But 10k yen for a figma? Maybe not that awesome (although every time I see pictures of her, regret). So when a scaled figure was shown at Wonfes, I had to jump on it.
This was a figure I was looking forward to for a long time, my favorite Vocaloid from my favorite manufacturer, and from an artist whose style I like. Max Factory has done a figma version of Luka and you can see my review of her here. But this is different, a 1/7 scale statue vs a 1/12 scale action figure. Does she live up to the expectati [...]
So I’ve been a little quiet on this blog over the past… 6 months, haha. Sorry. But rest assured that I’ve still been doing figure stuffs but Photoshop has been busy working on icons instead of photos and the keyboard has been clacking away at code instead of reviews. It’s an iPhone app called FigureCollection based on the M [...]
