Wonder Festival (WonFes) Winter 2013 has started. This is where Japanese companies announce upcoming figures. I'll keep this post updated with all announced game figures. You can watch http://myfigurecolle...n.net/blog/6616 for a list of all announced figures.

Marth Figma - Fire Emblem Awakening - (unknown date)
Naked Snake Revoltech - MGS Peacewalker - April 2013
E.S. Dinah - Xenosaga Episode III - (unknown date)

Revoltech is like Figma but produced by a different company. Similar in size, highly posable, and lots of accessories.

Received Momohime today and had to open her immediately. She is perfection! Alter is by far the best Japanese figure maker. Looking even more forward to Kongiku.

I'm looking forward to Nendoroid Iron Man (delayed from February to March). There's also a 1/6 Kotobukiya Iron Man re-release coming out in April:

The chest and eyes light up. Best place to preorder this one from is Anime-Island for $100: http://www.anime-isl...ew-package.html
Anime-Island is located in the US, so shipping should be cheaper than ordering overseas. They have great prices on Kotobukiya products since they have a direct connection with Kotobukiya's US branch. Like all US stores though, the figure will come out 1-2 months after the Japanese release.

I haven't seen Play Arts in person. For posable figures, Figma is my favorite. Revoltech is alright, but they aren't as good at hiding joints and sometimes feel blocky.

I'm usually not a fan of Revoltech, but they absolutely knock it out of the park with their Zone of the Enders line. Helps that there aren't many organic joints to account for.

Play Arts definitely have their ups and downs, but overall I'm a fan. I've got all of their MGS 25th Anniversary stuff and each one of them are stellar. Can't wait to add Liquid and MGS2 Raiden to the lineup.

My PAK Devil May Cry figs left a little to be desired though, unfortunately. Weird proportions, not the hottest paint jobs, etc.

I ran into this figure of Franky, being a fan of One Piece I would love to have it but the price is way too steep.

Awesome guys, thanks for the info. We should make another thread posting pics of our figure collection.

If you get into collecting, I recommend joining myfigurecollection.net (also called Tsuki-board). MFC has all the latest figure info, official pics, user pics, and a great community. You can keep track of your figure collection including ratings, pics, cost, preordered, etc. I ran out of display room and had a growing pile of unopened figures, so I recently added new display furniture and am in the middle of reorganizing everything. When I'm done I'll do a blog post on MFC with a bunch of pics. Send me a friend request if you join: http://myfigurecolle...ofile/Cantisama

I ran into this figure of Franky, being a fan of One Piece I would love to have it but the price is way too steep.

One Piece figures are incredibly popular and expensive. The preorders for the most popular ones sell out within an hour of going live. There's a lot of them too. Check MFC to see them all. Not really video game figures though (wait, wasn't there a PS3 game recently?).

Got my Momohime today. I am extremely impressed by Alter. I usually keep all my US figures sealed for display and maintaining future worth. I was going to open the Alter box, but after seeing it I'm going to have a hard time the little painted cherry blossoms on the window box and quality make it a display box itself.

Play Arts Kai is releasing two Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance figures in early August 2013. Riku looks alright, but Sora is... disconcerting.

Skyward Sword Link RAH (November 2013):
Posted ImagePosted Image
Preorder from AmiAmi (15800 JPY, ~$174): http://www.amiami.co...de=FIG-IPN-6204

This is the first Real Action Heroes (RAH) posted here. Some info on RAH:

  • RAH are large scale. This one is 1/6 scale, standing at 11.6 in.
  • RAH are still made of ABS and PVC, but the clothes is mostly fabric. This gives it a more realistic look, like a doll rather than a figure.
  • RAH are posable like a Figma. The joints are sometimes obvious.
  • RAH can come with lots of accessories like a Figma.
  • RAH quality is top notch.
  • RAH are very expensive.
I'll likely stick with my Link Figma since this is so expensive. But if you have the money and a love of all things Zelda, this looks amazing!

-Update- I couldn't refuse that bow pose. Ordered :3

Female Monster Hunter Nendoroid was released yesterday and is still available at AmiAmi (3000 JPY, ~$33): http://www.amiami.co...de=FIG-IPN-5144

The male version came out last year and is in stock at Hobby Search (3429 JPY, ~$38): http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10193889
Plamoya has the male version cheaper (2776 JPY, ~$31): http://plamoya.com/e...-p-p-54342.html

I wasn't much into MH, but I got the 3DS version last week and became addicted. I ordered the female version since she shows the face more (will be extra fun to use faces from other characters). These Nendoroids have been popular and sold out in most places. I'm surprised anyone still has them in stock. Order asap if interested.

-Update-
Female MH oos at AmiAmi.

I ordered one simply because it doesn't come out until November... there's the good chance the yen will keep dropping, making this cheaper thanks to conversion.

It'll still be pricey but this does look pretty awesome.

Quick question (Anyone can answer it) - When pre-ordering an item do you pay when the item releases or do you pay when the reservation window is closed?

Kongiku is pushed back again to "After May" (was previously "After April" and originally February)

Pics include Iron Man Nendoroid that arrived the other day. He turned out nice, although I had to contact GSC support since his mustache is crooked :/ I have yet to open the Female Monster Hunter Nendoroid but she looks great in the box.

Posting this here in case someone, somehow missed it.

Tales of Xillia CE comes with a Milla figure.

Spoiler


Pre-order is currently available on Gamestop.com.

Figure is 21.5 cm (8.46 in.).

Still debating it myself. I usually miss out on sweet CE like this because I lack the funds but right now I have it so I think I might jump on it.

Hey I checked out your pics, you have very good taste my friend!

I myself don't have very many figures (hopefully that'll change soon). Got a few Figmas and the DBZ/One Piece crossover figures. Maybe I'll start an account on MFC.
