Now that WonFes is behind us, it is time to look at some of the new figures that are now available for pre-order.

alter mio
First up is Alter’s rendition of moesome Mio Akiyama from K-ON!. While I love Mio to pieces and this is a fairly well done figure, I just do not feel that Alter has captured the personality of Mio in this figure. Though for Mio fanatics this 1/8 scale figure is definitely one of many to buy for their collection as it seems there will not be a shortage of different Mio figures in the future. Alter Mio is retailed at 6460 yen and set for a November release.

nendoroid shiki
Next up is Nendoroid Ryougi Shiki of Kara no Kyoukai fame. I have not had the opportunity to read the novel yet and have only seen the first movie so I do not know much about this character. I never would have imagined a nendoroid version of her, but it seems to work as she is very cute. She comes with the expression you see above as well as an expression of her using her ‘Mystical Eyes of Death Perception’. Also included is the cat and cat-eared hair with a cute expression from the doujinshi ‘Mirai Fukuin’ created by the original authors of the series. Nendoroid Shiki is retailed at 3167 yen and is set for a November release.

nendoroid churuya
And last, but certainly not least, is Nendoroid Churuya-san from the gag four koma ‘Nyor~on Churuya-san’ that recently received an anime adaptation. She comes with three different adorable expressions and a fork and knive to eat her block of smoked cheese. A nendoroid puchi version was made available for pre-order quite some time ago and will be released in September along with a volume of the four koma. Nendoroid Churuya-san is retailed at 2715 yen and is set for a December release.

All three figures are now available for pre-order at Hobby Search.

Out of the three aforementioned figures I will most likely be pre-ordering the Nendoroid Churuya-san (hopefully). I am not sure I will have the extra money before pre-orders close, but I will most definitely try. She is just too cute to pass up!

Which of these three lovely figures will you be pre-ordering?

  1. God, there are so many nice Nendoroids out now, and my budget can’t handle Mio, Shiki, and Churuya… This is a serious dilemma.

    • I agree. Though I might be able to pre-order Churuya-san because my birthday is coming up, but that’s about it. I can’t afford anything else.
