Figure News: My body wasn't ready for GSC's WF offerings

Figure News: My body wasn't ready for GSC's WF offerings
15 Jan 2011 02:09:20

Well, it's that time of the year again. Wonder Festival is mere weeks away, and Good Smile Company has prepared for it by announcing their new exclusives. This chart summarizes it nicely:



And a list of the exclusives de-moonruned:

Good Smile Company:
-Nendoroid Makise Kurisu, white coat ver.
-Kuroi Matou and Yomi Takanashi (Black*Rock Shooter) Petit Nendoroid set
-Nendoroid Snow Miku Full-Action ver.

Max Factory:
-Figma Kuroi Matou (Black*Rock Shooter)
-Vinyl Ultraman 80

GSC x 3A Toys
-WWR Japan Defense Force ver.

But that's not all! A partial list of some of the unveilings from the event has been leaked!



Most unexpected would be a Nendoroid of Atlus mascot Jack Frost! In addition to that, though, it confirms that the two Tentai Senshi Sunred Figmas aren't cancelled. Maybe they'll actually have joints this time! There's also a "1/7 Clalaclan" (maybe the Shining Wind Clalaclan?) and a number of Figmas and Nendoroids that have yet to be decoded.

So how do you feel about this year's exclusives? Anything notable, or just an average lineup? For me, the 3A collaboration is interesting, but nothing there beats the wonderfulness of Nendoroid Full-Action Neko-Arc. Anyway, sound off below!

Iv'e been meaning to post about the 3A collaboration ashley wood is vague about details but it seems it will be more than just this figure. I wonder if they will announce anything at wonderfest?

"I would also like to welcome Goodsmile Company as our official Japanese Distributor, they will be handling all the distribution of our retail toys in Japan ! Together we have some super fun things planned, so keep an eye out !"

Also I don't know if it's from the same list but I saw on myfigurecollection that Lynette Bishop and Sanya V Litvyak from Strike Witches are getting Figmas.

The Strike Witches duo were announced on an earlier brochure. I can't see their moonrunes here, but I guess we'll know for sure come WF.

I'm not gonna bother trying to get Mato or the new Snow Miku through middle men. It's easier/cheaper to be patient.

Thanks for the link, I heard about Mandarake but never used it. So, I just have to wait until they add these figures to their store? (and they don't ship by SAL if you use paypal, that's sad T.T)

Well, the thing about Mandarake is that it's a chain of about eight or so stores, that sell both new and used figures. People trade in figures there for store credit, so what you'll have to wait for is someone to trade a Snow Miku/Mato/whichever exclusive it is you want into one of the stores, at which point they'll list it for sale both on their website and in the physical store that it was traded in to.

When you do find one, the buying process works like so:
-Buy it on the website like you would with any other figure store.
-They'll check the physical store to make sure the item hasn't been sold to a customer.
-They'll email you about 24-72 hours after you place the order, telling you whether it's sold or not. If it's already been sold, the order is cancelled and that's the end of it. If they still have it, though, they'll send you a Paypal invoice, so you can buy it and they'll ship it to you.

Also, a few tips for using them:
-Rather than making listings for different products, they list each individual item they happen to have (so rather than a page for, say, Figma Hatsune Miku, they'd have a page for each individual Figma Miku they have - this is because the prices and conditions of the items vary). The listings are primarily in Japanese, so look up and copy-and-paste the moonrunes for the character's name into the search bar for best results.
-Don't be intimidated by the though of getting a used item - Japanese collectors tend to be extremely OCD about the condition of their items, so the item will more often than not arrive in practically-new condition.
-The listing for each item will mention the store it's at (Shibuya, Osaka, etc.). If you buy two items from different stores in the same order, they'll have to be shipped separately. So if you're buying multiple items, I recommend making sure they're all at the same store.

Nothing tickles my fancy really. Thanks God.
When it comes to 1/7 Clalaclan and Xecty, they are probably the swimsuit versions from Max Factory.
