Wonder Festival has been and gone but it has certainly left its mark! Figure blogs and collector sites have raved about the amount of high quality figures that are set to be released in the future. It seems the age of plain black bases (Griffon I am looking at you ^_-) is coming to an end, customers are becoming more picky about the quality of figures produced and as a result (some) members of the industry are upping the game.
Below are a selection of figures that I am eagerly awaiting to pre-order, the sheer amount of details added to sculpt, peripherals and base warrant that I buy these figures…regardless of the cost. Considering that 2010 is a fairly barren year so far I can fully justify the expenditures ^_^
I love the costume and tough girl look of this character, she will look great standing next to Yagyu and Hattori!
GSC (Good Smile Company) are on the mark with an excellent follow-up figure set to Black Rock Shooter. The start of the base are promising and will make a great diorama when set against the upcoming Anime Black Rock Shooter.
Dead Master Version 2 is on a complimenting chequered base, like the first Black Rock Shooter figure. Must have for my collection!
Really liking all the little weapons falling off her, makes me wonder how fragile this figure will be though.
Simply wow! This figure looks to be huge and will probably have a limited run and high price to back it up. With Vocaloid fever reaching critical mass we can only wait and see how companies aim to top these soon to be released figures.
So lots of eye candy being shared with above being my personal favourites this year (and possibly extending into next year?). As you can see the quality and adventurous designs make these highly anticipated products, all that remains to be seen is how competitively priced the new wave of super quality figures will be.
Thanks for reading
