Figmas I preordered and new stuff I'm looking forward to

Early this month I picked up Bioshock for the PS3. The end result was that I spent most of my spare time playing that awesome game. That meant no time for customizing or blogging. Now that I finished the game, it's time I get back to the swing of things.

So, after seeing pics of the new stuff coming out this year from wonderfest, I decided to make a note of what I plan on getting as well as what I've preordered. Starting with the K-on figmas. I've preordered Yui, Mio, Mugi, and I'm still trying to get a pre in for Ritsu. I just need to wait for another store to open pres or a 2nd batch later on. Azusa I definitely can't miss out on so I will be on guard when she goes up for pre. Ui is an exclusive and a minor character so if I find a good deal later then I'll get her, but if not it's all good.

Seeing that a Kos-Mos figma is gonna be made is good. I hope they keep on making figma based on other game characters. The four figmas in front of kos-mos I have preorderd. Kagura, Yomi, Lum, and Kagome. I have 2 Lums coming for a custom I've yet to decide upon. Kagura and Yomi I'm excited about. They have some nice weapons and posing them will be quite fun.

The next one is Figmas from Fate/Stay Night. I have the Fate/Extra PSP game with Mordred Figma preordered. I can't wait to get that. I also pre'd on Rider this week and I'm excited to get that in. Saber Alter is a good one to get when it comes out for pre. I'm skipping Archer due to my no figma dudes rule.

Then the Eva girls. I'm definitely pre'ing on all 3 and I may get doubles since I got some ideas for customising their plug suits. It just depends on when they come out and how much.

Finally is this Figma that I don't know the name of. Actually I read what the name and series that she comes from, but forgot where I saw it. Oh well, she looks different from my other figmas so I'll get her if possible.

Oh, and also the Sekirara figmas. I don't know if I'll be able to get any since they are packed with the game and maybe only available in Japan. I'd like to get at least some of them if possible.

Wonderfest: Black Rock Shooter Figma

Wonderfest started in Japan today and the first glimpses of some figmas that may be coming this year have made it onto the net. Of course one of the most anticipated is Black Rock Shooter and her nemesis Dead Master. Pics from akibahobby.

I can't wait to get these 2. I just hope they're not going to be exclusives. The other Figmas shown during the event are pretty cool too. I may post pics of those as well. Or just check out for his pics of the event.

Figma Cute from Queens Blade PSP game

I finally got in my Queens Blade Spiral Chaos PSP game limited edition from Toyslogic. However, I wasn't able to open it and mess around with it since I've been trying to perfect my Fried Rice recipe. After my last attempt, I finally succeeded and so here's a pic of my efforts. It's a 3 meat fried rice consisting of smoked peppered bacon, canadian bacon, angus beef hot dogs, eggs, green onions, carrots, seasonings, toyomansi, and a packet of nasi goreng seasoning.

Yummy! I can feel it clogging my arteries as I type this.

Anyway, onto the good stuff. Here's some pics of the box. Front, back, and sides.

And the contents. It comes with the PSP game, a CD, a Visual Book, and of course the figma of Cute.

Cute is quite a detailed figma. Her costume is accurate to the design and is made of soft rubbery material for better posings.

She comes with her big bladed weapons, a total of 3 face parts, the usual set of hands, a figma stand, and the "shift" body part.

The shift body is a fixed body that has been sculpted to look like Cute's clothes has been torn off from battle. It's quite hot and revealing. The limbs and head are taken off the normal figma body and reattached to the shift body.

There's not a lot of pose-ability in this configuration, but the character is part of Queens Blade so fanservice takes precedence. Besides, she's got a nice rear bumper.

This figma is my third game exclusive and like all the other exclusives, it's one of the better figmas in my collection. It's sculpted well, paint is gorgeous, the shift body is an interesting way to pose it battle damaged, and the overall presentation is what I come to expect from a figma game exclusive.

Now onto some fun. Cute has been fighting Alleyne, but she's been overpowered. In comes Saber to help her out.
Cute: "Aww, my favorite panties are ruined and my tush is showing."
Saber: "Stand aside girl. I'll win this battle."

Alleyne: "A new challenger?"

How will this battle end? Who knows, they all look hot so it doesn't really matter.
