Selvaria Bles - Alter's Bikini Clad Commander

Hello boys and girls! Today I have a post about one of my favorite female characters, Selvaria Bles by Alter. You might know her from games like Valkyria Chronicles, or Valkyaria Chronicles 2, or Valyria... 3, well you get the idea.

As I already mention Selvaria is from the video game series Valkyria Chronicles, which is developed by SEGA, and she's a design by Raita Honjou for the games. The games are a sort of strategy/action mix that works very well and I'd highly recommend them.

You might notice that this Selvaria's face and overall style looks quite different from the older Alter Selvaria with lance and shield. It's seems to me that this is because this one is made with reference to one of Raita's sketches directly, while the other one seems to be more akin to the 3D model of her from the games. Interestingly enough the original sketch included a summer hat and beach ball. I think I would have like that better since it gives her a more summer-y and soft look, rather than the weird shower head thing. She is sculpted by Yagyuu Toshiyuki which has done number of other figures which I find very appealing. There was also a limited edition version of this figure with white bikini rather than black.

Whenever Raita draws her, her eyes become intense, serious, but melancholic almost sad as well. I think this better fits her character best. In contrast others will make her come off as simply an angry and domineering drill sergeant, which is pretty far removed from how she really is. Selvaria is a woman with a troubled past and is trying to cope with her life by doing her duty as a soldier, not an S&M queen trying to destroy the world.

I think this warm feeling was translated well into the figure, as her eyes and face are quite beautiful.

You probably already noticed but, Selvaria has enormous tits, which is not a deterring factor in the slightest. As a very nice detail, here you can see the bikini top pressing against the breast to create an indentation on the flesh.

You can also appreciate how the breast begins near the arm pit and on the upper chest and flows down on to the actual mass of the breast. On the upper part of the breast you can see that the skin has separated from the cloth, leaving behind a tense golden string that seems to barely be able to contain the weight. These details really give a sence of weight to her bosom making it feel more life-like.

Her hair is of a blueish silver color instead of the usual silver, almost white, that she is usually portrayed in. This doesn't really bother me since whenever she has her powerful Valkyria aura her hair glows with a blue outline, so this color seems natural to me. The hair is also quite soft and each strand can bend quite a bit. I don't think I saw any seam lines either, as far as figure hair goes, Selvaria's is pretty damn beautiful.

Her abdomen is actually pretty well toned, she's a soldier after all. Here you can also see her fancy belt which is supposed to be for the sheath of her sword.

It connects to that belt thing with shiny gold patterns. You can see the hole where the peg goes into. You can also see her wonderfully nice buttocks and delightfully plump legs.

The sword has been inserted.

Her sandals follow the same gold pattern on black background. You can also see the finely sculpted feet and painted toenails. She connects to the base only though the peg on the rock beneath her foot here. The base also has a little seashell which is surprisingly soft.

While she only connects with one peg the was is sculpted so that it fits almost perfectly into her lovely bottom. This and the fact that she's holding on to the shower head with her right hand makes her very stable.

Her outfit has the imperial army sigil and is in its colors. She even has a choker very similar to her battle uniform. Makes me wonder if the imperial army has an official swimsuit uniform. Hmm maybe the empire is not that bad after all.

Selvaria seems to be ready for battle even when taking time off on the beach.

She even has a backup knife just in case.

Overall I really liked this figure. I was a little hesitant that her proportions would be a little too ridiculous but once I had her with me I thought she looked good. Very darn good actually. Writing this has reminded me of just how much I liked Valkyria Chronicles and how much I liked her as well.

Till next time~

Pre-order list: the "dammit dollar, why are you so weak" edition!!!

So this time, me and exilehero are doing a pre-order list together. The pre-order list from last time, which was all my stuff.

February

To start off is a figure both exilehero and myself have sought after for some time now.

Annelotte from Queen's Blade Rebellion. I know nothing about the OVA's or about Annelotte herself but all those pictures on MFC sure have skewed my idea of her.

One disappointing thing though, I had imagined her voiced by Yukana sounding just like Tessa does. Alas she is voiced by Aya Endo who couldn't be further from that high pitched cutsy voice... oh well... Aya Endo is still nice though.

 

I pretty much wanted her because of the pictures in MFC and after seening the OVA I wanted her even more, the Elf instructor included. She has such exploitable expressions, 3 really nice faces to tease her with. I also like that she's a girl knight, I think I like that sort of thing. You don't see many girls with functional armor out there. Not that she keeps it on for long, being Queen's Blade and all.

This figure makes me quite happy, Makoto is another one of my grail figures.

Been wanting her for ages but I never saw it for sale anywhere at all. A helpful soul on figure.fm directed me to a personal sale on ebay, after checking everything out and for a reasonable price no less, I bought Makoto.

Time to look forward to the likely emotional breakdown I will have reliving Kanon when I get to do a photo shoot for this figure.

 

I really don't get why you got this one at all. I just can't understand having not watched Kanon so I can't relate to the emotional response. Being relativity new to figures I see this one as kinda plain in comparison to today's. But hell whatever makes you happy. Though now that I see her from the backside in this picture she does have a rather nice fan-service-y skirt. I just don't understand grail figures.

This is a pair of figures I have been eyeing for over a year.

When they where first released last year I did not see much interest in them, only a few pictures on flickr. I can probably make a guess why people disliked them though.

Still I find them to be charming, after all they remind me of one big reason I like Touhou, everyone has their personal take on the characters. These two figures are the sculptor's take on Reimu and Marisa. I'm getting both since you can't have Reimu without Marisa and vice versa.

 

I don't really like this Reimu that much, but I like Marisa. Reimu looks kinda scrawny from the photo's I've seen, and her face doesn't look very Reimuish to me. Marisa fits the skinnier look a little better to me. She has more defined legs form what I've seen. But more Touhou stuff is always good. I'm still surprised you just went and ordered both.

 

 

 

March

Ah Mami, the ever so popular puella magi that got a bit ahead of herself.

I still plan on collecting all five girls, already got Madoka and Homura and next up is Mami.

Such a shame she got delayed from January until March though.

 

 

 

They included the angsty face even though it was just like 5 seconds or something from the anime. Poor Mami will never live it down. I like how all the Madoka girls come with a bunch of weapons. And it's a good thing it got delayed, now my March shipping costs are shared evenly, yay!

Are you all ready for a squidding invasion  ~ de geso!

Ika Musume is a type of character that makes me so happy the figma line exists. While a scaled figure of her would be nice it would not be able to give me as much fulfillment as this figma will. To be able to relieve all those memorable antics of Ika Musume's invasions would be impossible. Quite frankly, it's because she is a figma that she can live up to the potential of her character.

 

I'm also getting her. I really liked the Ika Musume anime, it's such an emotional rollercoaster, and because of it I can think of a lot of photos I want to take of her. I'm a little woried that her tentacles will get bent out of shape though.

I know very little of Sengoku Rance, one thing is that it contains interpretations of historical figures. Two the protagonist will rape any girl in sight, including a genderbend version of himself. Three it contains really cute looking girls. I remember the bigger scaled version of Kenshin that FREEing did a while back, always caught my attention but since I knew nothing about the character I never bought it. The figma is a nice interpretation, really love that cute blushing face. Good thing exilhero is buying one.

 

 

Erm, well Rance doesn't actually rape himself as a girl, that's just a Bad End, but the other two are correct. Anyway I did play Sengoku Rance and I got way more than I expected. In the end I was actually playing because it was fun rather than for, you know, ecchi stuff. Kenshin is one of the cuter girls in the game so I natually wanted to have her. That FREEing Kenshin was the first figure I actually considered buying, but I thought it was ridiculously priced at the time. I hope they make more Figmas of this series, maybe Senhime or Sill, hell Rance would be nice for funny comics.

Next up is that idiotic puella magi.

While I still dislike Sayaka a bit, I also still think she is the better looking of the puella magi in terms of her design. I look forward to her addition to my collection of puella magi figmas.

Plus that "unlimited blade works" she has going on with her cutlasses is pretty neat.

 

 

 

Ehh I don't know why you hate her so much, she was an idiot and all but I don't see it justifying so much hate. And I also don't get why you like how she looks, her design looks kinda plain to me. I still wonder what those triggers on her swords are for.

Alter's Persona 3 figures are some of my more sought after past releases, but god, those second hand market prices.

Luckily enough for me Alter came to the rescue with the release this awesome looking version of Aigis. This version is even more detailed looking than Alter's past efforts with Aigis, a perfect recreation of the illustration that this figure is based on.

Although it was annoying Aigis was delayed not once but twice, she was supposed to be released in January. I guess my lucky break of figures releasing on time is over now that 2012 has started.

This is my first scaled Aigis, only got the two figmas thank you very much.

 

Don't you already have enough Aigis figures already? I rember you had like 4 or something. Well she does look pretty nice I'll give you that. I really like how detailed she is and how striking her blue eyes are. I always thought that her robot hooves looked kinda gross though.

I have no idea who this girl is other than she comes from a visual novel from Nitro+.

I do remember debating whether I wanted to buy her. I like maids, I like the pose, I love her pouting expression, a nice tanned girl is nice once in a while too.

In the end though, I didn't have to worry whether to buy or not.

 

 

Because I decided to get it. I also don't know much about her, but when I first saw her it was love at first sight. I mean delicious tsundere brown elf girl in a maid outfit! How can I NOT have it? I was on the fence with her for a bit though. Her face reminded me of this one doujinshi where bad things happen to enslaved brown elf girls. Which reminds me of this other H anime where brown elf girls get abused some more. They just can't catch a break. But I researched a bit and found out a little more about her and now I see the face as embaressed rather than sad.

 

 

April

See this bodacious looking sexy woman?

She is one of the few things that genuinely scared me when I played a game. God this woman, I will never forget her introduction into the battlefield.

Anyways, I don't really like this figure, I think the body looks too elongated. I'm quite happy with Alter's other Selvaria which I should really take out of her box one day and snap some pictures of her.

 

Man, the only comment you make of the figure and it's a negative one. I think she looks fine really. The designs from Valkyria Chronicles are kinda like this. I think the figure follows the original drawings rather than the game's design. Raita's drawings tend to be a little exagerated in expression (and breast size), which makes them appealing to me. I was indecisive on whether to get her for a while because her boobs look a little too big and because that shower head is is just stupid. I took a good look at her face though, and I remembered why I like Selvaria so much in the first place. Anyway I can't wait to see her when she arrives later in the year.

I arrived too late to the figure collecting business by the time I got into Zero no Tsukaima so I missed out on all the cute Louise figures.

Luckily enough for me, Alter decided to re-release probably the one Louise figure I sough the most. Actually lately I been getting some nice re-releases from figure manufactures.

Anyways, I find this Louise really cute, just look at that expression. I find it quite an interesting figure as it does not depict Louise in her familiar school uniform or that well known maid outfit she wears.

 

I really like Louise. She's probably my favorite Kugimiya Rie tsundere. Violent temper aside, when she's dere she's really DERE, it just melts my heart each time she's embarassed by whatever Saito is trying to do to her. And because I like Louise so much it was hard to pass on this figure but in the end I did. I can't seem to find a Louise figure that I absolutely love.

Here we go, the last of the puella magi.

I don't know what to say, Kyouko is probably the girl I like the least. I don't hate her, I just don't like her either. I think I ended up finding her boring or something.

Well, whatever, I look forward to get her to reenact some delicious yuri with her and Sayaka. Oh man, when I get her it's gonna be so cool to finally have all five girls together, gonna make me feel quite satisfied for sure.

 

Kyouko is probably my favorite Madoka girl. I like her kinda rough personality, her long red hair tied up in a pony tail, and her character design. Not that many people like her for some reason. As much as I liker her I'm not really getting her. I can't do much with just one Madoka girl, and Miette is getting her so I'll get to see her anyway.

 

 

 

May

Much like last year the figure I look forward to the most is a rendition of Yukari. Reimu might be my favorite Touhou girl but Yukari is the one who gets the nicer figures. She comes with some nice options to display her.

Although I'm quite weary of this figure. It has a quite higher price than a similar figure her size normally goes for, plus she is by QuesQ a manufacturer that I have yet to see up close. Reviews of their figures have turned out fine so I have high hopes for their work.

 

First thing I said when when I saw her was "Ok I'm buying this", then I saw the price, and said, "Ok I'm buying this", then Miette said he was getting it too and I said, "order two". I might have been joking but she looks really damn detailed. The more I see of her the more I want her. I really really like how she looks in the photos so far so I have high hopes for her. The price tag doesn't looks so unreasonable now. Did I mention I like Yukari?

One day, I was noticing a severe lack of swim suit figures in my collection. I only have two of them. I also noticed that I was being a bad Nanoha fan and skipping on her figure releases. Finally I noticed my ratio of loli Nanoha to adult Nanoha was not equal.

Then Alter came to the rescue, not only do I get an adult sexy Nanoha to balance things out, she is also wearing a swim suit. No wonder Alter is my favorite manufacturer.

This figure is based on a poster featuring Nanoha, Fate and Vivio leaning against a wall. The inclusion of a chunk of that wall makes me hope Alter will release a Fate and Vivio to match this Nanoha.

 

 

This one looks really nice. Ever since I got summer dress Fate I've become somewhat of a Fate fan, so the first thing I thought when I saw Nanoha was, "Is there a Fate like this?". Sadly not (yet). I've been meaning to get another Fate figure but I can't quite pick one I like. I kinda wanted to get the enormous 1/4th swimsuit Fate but I'd rather wait and see if they make one to acompany this Nanoha... which was supposed to be the main focus of my comment here. Oh well.

To make sure we do not have a lack of swimsuit clad girls during the summer exilehero is buying this Cecilia. Cecilia is my favorite IS girl, I think she is a fun gal, she is also voiced by Yukana.

I been curious about the Beach Queens line for a while, never got interested in any of the figures to actually buy one. The one exception was Biri Biri but alas, I missed out on that release and re-release. Only one thing I dislike already is their size, 1/10 makes them kinda tiny.

 

I've been wanting a Cecillia figure for a while and this one was the one I liked the most from what I've seen. Miette's been telling me about swimsuit figures in the summer for a while so she takes care of a couple things at a time. Hmm I didn't even realize she was 1/10th scale. I love her drill hair!

This figure I find quite charming. I'm sure only Touhou fans, by that I mean actual fans who play the games, will enjoy this figure.

ZUN, creator of Touhou has a rather unique art style. This figure is based on his art rather than some artistic interpretation of it. In fact this is pretty much the menu screen for the twelfth Touhou game, Undefined Fantastic Object.

The figure itself is really cheap, more along a prize figure, it's also from a manufacturer that I never hear of before. Still as a Touhou fan I can't pass this up, it's just too amusing.

 

This one is just silly.

 

 

 

 

 

June

Alright, raise your hand if you didn't see this coming?

After Robocop I suppose the figma line is branching more besides cute girls and Kamen Riders.

There is also apparently a Link figma now so I wonder what other Nintendo characters will come out. Some people were being idiots on 4chan one time because this Samus is based on her Other M incarnation. I liked the game, a nice Metroid game, a nice action game, a nice gamey game.

My biggest complain is that Samus was not voiced by Jenifer Hale like she was in the Prime games.

I mean, just imagine, Samus sounding as cool as FemShep!

 

Oh don't remind me of the Prime fanboys, oh the humanity! Anyway I'm also getting her. I'm kinda glad that recently I've been seeing more video game characters getting figures. I already have a million ideas for Samus. It's easy for me to come up with stories for game characters it seems.

Here is Rita from Tales of Vesperia the game I bought an Xbox 360 for. For some reason I really, really liked the party characters a lot in Tales of Vesperia. That single handedly made Vesperia my favorite Tales game.

I did find it odd that Alter went and release a figure of Yuri, the protagonist, and Flynn, his friend and rival, before any of the girls.

Now here we are and Alter is releasing Rita, here I hope Alter does the other girls too. Give me Judy, Judy! Man I love that woman!

 

I've yet to play Vesperia. I was gonna play it and then literaly that day the PS3 version with extra content was anounced. So I decided to wait for the PS3 version to get localized to play it... AND I'M STILL WAITING! haha.. I'll play it some day.. *sigh*, on the 360. Oh yeah, only Miette is getting this one.

 

 

 

Another Ques Q figure, this time of the the titular Neptune in her goddess form as Purple Heart from Hyperdimension Neptuna.

My one disappointment from this figure is the lack of the armor that goes along with this form in the game.

That game was sure a mixed bag. A game where you play as the anthropomorphization of the current console war and their fight against piracy. If you are a person who has been gaming for years and watching anime for years the reference fest that is this game is a rather amusing experience.

Too bad playing the game itself was a pain in the ass.

 

I think she looks very nice. For some reason I really like her face and hair and eyes and body and suit. Though I've never really played Neptunia, so that really keeps me from buying it.

HA! This time it is shorter!

Even if it's by only one figure.

Last month's list as usual.

Someday...

I think Play-Asia is never gonna ship Marisa to me. I been waiting since May, and the release date has been moving up and up ending with a TBA.

So, gonna keep an eye on Mandrake, if anyone spots one let me know.

October

I was happily looking forward to getting Selvaria on September but alas a delay occurred. Now slated for a late October release, such a shame.

I can't wait to get this figma in my hands. The Dead Master design is so appealing to me plus I'm sure BRS figma is feeling lonely without her lovely friend.

November

I really like this figure, I really am looking forward to it. However, I been feeling tempted to drop her and use that money instead to buy a few articulated figures instead.

Still got the rest of October to think it over.

I still like Persona 3 as much as before, so not much to say about that.

Plus something I like about both Aigis and Metis is that being robots the joints really are negligible aesthetically speaking.

Not that figma joints have ever bothered me in the first place.

So, loli Haruhi was shipped to me earlier this week making her fourth Haruhi figma. Even though I have four already I still happily look forward to my fifth.

Quite saddened that Strike Witches ended. What better way to cheer myself up than with a figma of one of the 501st girls right?

December

Thinking about it, I'm not quite sure why I am attracted to Alter's rendition of Saten Ruiko. It seems though many people are since there is a waiting list for her at Hobby Search.

I kinda regret a little not getting Koto's or Alter's Asuka since the pictures I been seeing of the former look quite good.

Luckily for me I will get the figma version to make forget all that regret.

I kinda don't want the BRS blu-ray anymore now that I own the DVD that came with the BRS figma. Not that I can do much about it since I can't cancel AmiAmi orders.

If anyone cancelled with AmiAmi before let me know how.

January

This annoys me, why are all the Railgun figmas exclusives or bundles?

I will still happily get Biri Biri with the bundle since it's a game I can actually play.

As far Kuroko I will wait for the figma to show up on Mandrake without the game. Same thing for MISAKA, kinda clever though that there will be only 20,000 of them. Yeah, I want at least 3 Sisters.

Since I'm getting Asuka it's pretty obvious to get Rei as well right?

I'm pretty sure I mentioned before that I tend to think of certain characters as a pair or group. Asuka and Rei are one such occurrence.

February

THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL!

I'm pretty sure everyone at once point wished one character or another got the figma treatment. This is mine.

If I could only buy only one figma, or if for reason I had to sell all my figmas, or if could only save one from destruction, it would be Kos-Mos. That's how much I want this figma, that's how much I like Kos-Mos.

I arrived late to the party so I didn't get to buy many Kos-Mos figures when they where released and the after market prices for some of them make it unlikely I will buy them anytime soon. So when I get the opportunity to buy one as it releases I don't think twice about it.

February seems so far away.

Twitter : )

I was pretty sure it was gonna be a shorter list...

... er... I wonder if I will be able to pay all this... -_-

This list just keeps growing and growing.

Last time's list.

September

Eh...Sakuya got delayed until late September not fun, not fun at all.

I manged to find her available at Otacute, I never bought anything from them before. I will count this as a trial to see if I will get the future Touhou figmas from Otacute.

Stupid Play-Asia, everyone has been happily enjoying their Marisa but not me. Marisa originally had a May release but kept slipping to the next month over and over again.

Finally, it was a given a September release date, I sure hope that is the case at least I will get her together with Sakuya.

The other day I played the demo for Valkyria Chronicles 2 on the PSP, I was reminded why I liked the gameplay of the first title so much.

With Valkyria Chronicles 2's release this figure will make the perfect accompaniment to me as a fan of the series and of Selvaria. Yes, I already got my copy of Valkyria Chronicles 2.

Almost forgot, go buy Valkyria Chronicles on the PS3 and the sequel on the PSP.

Loli Haruhi still scheduled for me to get, plus it will be nice to have her when I pick up the second season of the anime when the it gets restocked in September.

October

Suddenly October feels a little lonely.

The more I look at her the more I like Dead Master. I do wonder, BRS figma came with the DVD of the OVA will Dead Master as well?

November

This Dead Master though, no matter what happens I will make sure to get her.

A really nice release to commemorate my birthday month.

I'm pretty sure I mentioned how much I liked Persona 3 and it's later incarnations P3: FES and P3P.

As a fan of Persona 3 when I learned Metis was getting the figma treatment she became a must get for me.

I was surprised when Miyafuji went up for reservation. For some reason I had this idea that she was a pack in exclusive for some game or something along those lines.

Although this is no good, I wouldn't be surprised if I bought the whole 501st crew if they get the figma treatment.

I wonder why I keep buying Haruhi figmas, this will be my fifth.  Whatever, long haired Haruhi pleases me plus the included Yuki face is pretty cool too.

December

I think I might end up with too many Nanoha figures. Five figures and one Dollfie and still counting.

One more couldn't hurt I suppose, specially when it has so many goodies and looks so good.

Man, I'm still surprised Alter went with Saten first for a an Index/Railgun figure. I still plan to get her and I look forward to see what comes next in this line from Alter.

To be honest Eva didn't leave a good impression on me after I watched the show and the movies. I had some issues regarding Shinji, the last episode and his role in the movies.

However, recently I read a blog article that allowed to come to terms with my issues with Eva. Now I will give Eva a second chance with the current line of movies.

Not that any of that matters, Asuka is awesome. After her recovery in the final movie and her amazing feat against the mass porduced Evas she became ingrained as the character who made the most impact on me from the show.

When I learned the BRS blu-ray had a special edition with goodies I kinda thought about getting it. When I learned it came with English subtitles it really tickled my fancy.

With the BRS figma having shipped with the DVD I do wonder with how many copies of the OVA I will end up with at the end.

January

Max Factory has been really nice lately, making figmas from my wishlist actual figma releases.

Although kind of a shame Biri Biri can only be bought bundled with a game, I'm still quite happy about this.

At the very least the game being an appropriate fighting game is something I can play without any knowledge of the Japanese language.

This hobby is just too much...

Twitter : )

It's Just Like Making a Christmas List

When I list all the announced figures I want to get for the rest of the year.

Except of course that Santa doesn't magically deliver them to me and that I'm the one footing the bill.

Last month's list for those interested.

July

Marisa got released a while ago, and I bought her in early May from Play-Asia with a May release. In a couple of days it will be August and I wouldn't be surprised if I still don't receive her.

I'm a little annoyed with the limited release of Touhou figmas. Still, whatever troubles I go through to get Marisa is worth it. After all, you can't have a Reimu without Marisa.

Oh well, at least she is still cheaper than Reimu at $60 USD.

August

I can't wait for Azunyan, she is all that's left and I get a complete After School Tea Time band. I didn't really like Azusa more than usual when I first watched K-On! Now though that K-On!! has focused more on her she is growing on me.

Pre-ordered at Hobby Search for 2,266 yen.

I was supposed to have received the BRS figma together with Mio this month but alas she got delayed until August.

While I like BRS I didn't find her appealing enough to put down the money for one of the scaled releases. The figma though? That I'm more willing to buy.

Hopefully with no more delays, pre-ordered at Hobby Search for 2,266 yen.

I was wondering what Touhou girls would Max Factory make after the obvious Reimu and Marisa.

I'm happy that Max Factory went with the battle maid time controlling Sakuya. Out of all the Touhou games I like Embodiment of Scarlet Devil's cast the most so I'm happy when Sakuya was announced.

Speaking of which, Max Factory, I want a Cirno, Remilia, Flandre and Patchouli figmas.

Sakuya has the listing price of 2,800 yen. I plan to acquire her from an auction site or Play-Asia if she is in stock after her release.

Total for August 7,332 yen.

September

Alright once again, go play and buy Valkyria Chronicles for the PS3. Just the other day I played Valkyria Chronicles again and remembered why I like both the game and Selvaria.

I don't remember if I said it before but Alter is my favorite figure producer. With that in mind, a character I like from a game I love by my preferred figure manufacturer is a no brainier.

Selvaria is priced at 8,330 yen in Hobby Search.

Loli Haruhi will be my fourth Haruhi figma and you know what? I don't care.

I should get annoyed at Max Factory for releasing yet another variation of Haruhi as a figma but I'm not.

Either way I look forward to getting her and expanding Haruhi's expression repertoire. Plus now I really want a Kyon to accompany Haruhi and orange is my favorite color.

Anyways pre-ordered for 2,266 yen at Hobby Search.

Total for August 10, 596 yen.

October

While the BRS didn't spark my interest too much Dead Master did. I find her character design really, really appealing and the character both as Yomi and Dead Master was likable for me on the OVA.

I'm a figma collector first and foremost when it comes to figures so I'm not passing her up.

Pre-ordered for the slightly higher price of 2,429 yen.

I own only one Vocaloid figma, Miku, and she is not my favorite by any means.

As for Luka I like her design, so I pre-ordered her just in case later on I ended wanting her.

Pre-orderd at the usual figma price of 2,266 yen.

Now here is one figure I'm glad I pre-orderd just in case as I seen some already closed.

Like I said before I really like the whole mecha musume vibe Klan Klang is giving off with the VF-25 FAST pack. I'm still not sure if I want to get her because of the 10,200 yen price but in case I do she is safely pre-ordered.

Total for October 15, 095 yen.

Novemeber

This Dead Master figure caught my eye instantly and just as she went up for pre-order I quickly reserved her.

I look forward to both owning her and taking pictures of her.

She is the sole release I want for my birthday month at a price of 7,467 yen.

Total for November 7.467 yen.

December

When I first heard of the actsta line I was curious about it. The quality of a scaled figure plus the articulation of a figma together in one new type of figure.

Then I learned the first release was Subaru from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS and then followed by Teana from the same show this July. I mean, out of all the possible choices GSC had there surely was other more popular characters to chose. Because of this I didn't payed attention to the actsta line after it was announced.

That changed with the recent Wonfes when GSC announced a Nanoha actsta.

I'm looking forward to her as she has not only the same accessories as her figma counterpart but even more in the form of the magic circles.  Besides as nice good quality release of one of my top 3 2D girls I can't miss it.

She is pre-ordered with a price of 7,933 yen, while I feel it's kinda high for an articulated figure I have already payed a higher price for a figma.

Now here is a release that I find interesting for three reasons.

The first is that Saten Ruiko a secondary character from A Certain Scientific Railgun got a figure from Alter. The second that Alter would chose to release her first over say Biri Biri or Kuroko or other Index/Railgun characters. The third, that I apparently liked her character enough to buy a scaled figure of her.

Thinking about it the reason I like Saten comes down to two specific episodes from the Railgun anime when she succumbs to effects of Level Upper and when she goes to the make up classes for people who used it.

Well, pre-ordered for 5,780 yen.

Total for December 13, 713 yen.

A pretty large list in my opinion, I really wonder how many will I actually obtain by the end of year.
