    cfx (9 days ago) #50945383^Did you see that Twilight Sparkle was shown painted?
    I haven't found much so far for me. That Catwoman is disappointing somehow.


    Yeah, I saw the painted version, she turned out great. I'm gonna PO when she goes up. Surprisingly, Applejack is my favorite, her outfit is simple, but her face is just so cute. Agreed, I'm not feeling the paint on Catwoman, she aged with it.

    My lists:

    Sculpt or paint this WonFes:
    Twilight Sparkle - MLP ITEM #689829
    KOS-MOS - Xenoblade 2 ITEM #740131
    Dante Sparda - DMC 5 ITEM #760084
    Nero - DMC 5 ITEM #760082

    New:
    Alice - Odin Sphere ITEM #805462
    Professor Oak - Pokemon ITEM #806057
    Hatsune Miku, Snow Princess Ver. - Vocaloid ITEM #806071
    Rarity - MLP ITEM #806148
    Rainbow Dash - MLP ITEM #806155
    Applejack - MLP ITEM #806157

    I overlooked the Snow Princess Miku; that's a possiblity for me depending on how she turns out. I guess I never expect Snow Miku scales since they've basically ignored those every year.

    Edit: I also overlooked Koto's Raphtalia ITEM #806092 which assuming they pick a pose better than that piece of art will hopefully be a nice figure.

    Well, not so much for me but at least I got to see what I was expecting.

    Elaine [NSFW] ITEM #464768 is finally painted and is lovely.

    Illya ITEM #676131 and Kuro ITEM #676134 were painted and look great, especially Kuro, the color of her bunny outfit goes really well with her character.

    https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/take1231549773679.jpeg


    Chiaki Bunny Ver. ITEM #740252 was the biggest surprise for me, I wasn't expecting anything from this but they made a wonderful bunny version. I have to see her colored to seal the deal, but so far so good.

    Reika from Prime 1 Studio ITEM #806245 looks awesome, the best Reika I've seen, coming from Prime 1 Studio the price is going to be insane, is something I can't afford in this life but at least I can appreciate her.

    Native and Skytube showed a lot of things [from here NSFW of course]. The new Erika ITEM #806172 is great, Hanazono Himeka ITEM #676040 looks better that expected, I was also expecting to see this new Oda Non girl ITEM #805978 but for now I'm not impressed.

    Elaine's transparent wings are really nice and she still looks more like an art nude than an overtly lewd figure, though I'm sure that may be different from the other side.

    Kuro's whole color scheme is really nice; the bunnysuit goes well with the darker skin tone and the skin is nicely shaded. If the final product really looks like this she'll be great.

    Chiaki is cute and I am really impressed with Kyouko Kirigiri ITEM #740245

    https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Agon1549712966.jpeg

    I feel FREEing has really upped the detail on these bunny figures (Kyouko's hair!), and are also doing a better job of making the bunny outfits keep details reflecting the characters rather than just sticking everyone in a plain bunny suit. They've done it before like with Chitoge Kirisaki ITEM #292668 who I own, but it seems more common now.

    They've also started doing more elaborate figures in the line like the recent Reimu ITEM #604477 who isn't a bunny, but still part of the B-Style line. Of course the price on her is quite high as well.

    From my previously posted Wonderfest want list.

    No new horror bishoujo, no Kotobukiya G.I. Joe prototypes, no re-releases that I noticed, and no new Heroine Memories characters (ENTRY #103563).

    I ended up not liking restaurant girl's (ITEM #805044) expression that much. I still like the concept though and hope we get more similar characters.

    A new Oda Non girl (ITEM #805978) but I can't display her anyway.

    Like others, I'm not crazy about the new Catwoman's (ITEM #736575) face.

    All I remember about My Little Pony (ENTRY #158939) is that annoying song for the toy commercials. It would always come on when I was watching G.I. Joe and other cartoons. But the cowgirl and rainbow hair girl designs look pretty good. The design for the one with the book looks good too but I probably won't end up getting any of these.

    But wait! It's not all bad! Bunny girl with hot legs and sword found!!!

    Erza Bunny Version (ITEM #783704).

    https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/BadWolfVindici1544735561.jpeg

    She was already put up for pre-order it seems but I just noticed her because of the red variant. But the black version looks more dangerous. I think her character is pretty cool. I'll take a look at the anime. But I already have a display place in mind.

    Prime 1 Studio didn't have Gatchaman. But they did show another colossus from Shadow of the Colossus.

    https://news.toyark.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2019/02/WF2019-Prime-1-Studio-003.jpg

    I think this is the one I'm going for. I would like to see what they could do with the ruined water temple colossus though. Same goes for one of the flying ones. No way they are making the final colossus.

    Motoko update (ITEM #738339)!

    https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Sekhmet1549787160.jpeg

    She's a possibility with her action pose.

    If Battle Angel is good I think I'm going with the Prime 1 Studio version exclusive.

    https://news.toyark.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2019/02/Prime-1-Alita-Battle-Angel-020.jpg

    I need to see Gantz too. Another company released a similar figure but Prime 1 Studio has a bigger version (ITEM #806568).

    https://news.toyark.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2019/02/WF2019-Prime-1-Studio-012.jpg

    And a smiling version (ITEM #806245) which was already posted. But if I like the anime and character enough this is the one I might try to get.

    Another Alisa (ITEM #804102). I keep saying two is enough but the concept looks good.

    I saw a cool Figma girl with gun design (ITEM #806099) but there is no reason to get excited since they take so long from concept, to prototype, to painted prototype, to release.

    I still haven't watched Darling in the FranXX yet. I was going to decide on this Zero Two (ITEM #675700) and I see they are showing a variant (ITEM #806203). I like the red version more than the big smile version.

    There is also a maybe NSFW almost nude Zero Two (ITEM #740109). I haven't seen the show but if this is based off a changing into armor scene, I hope more companies attempt other characters. There are a few old anime shows with female characters doing a magical change from normal clothes into their fighting costumes.

    She has a pretty face but I don't know what the design is about (ITEM #800553).

    I like this Maid concept (ITEM #806375). Not sure if she'll be as cool as the Black Lagoon Maid though. A maybe.

    The Witch of October girl (ITEM #676096) that was posted is a possibility too. Perhaps first cast off figure. But it will be an exception since she technically isn't cast off but probably a whole different body piece.

    An ok show I guess. 2 guaranteed figures.

    Koto's Horror, Marvel, DC and probably G.I. Joe bishoujos are more likely to be revealed at a US comic con or other show of that type so I wasn't surprised they weren't at this show; I was actually surprised the pony girls were.

    Prime 1's Reika is nice but I prefer the smiling one, in part because the black bottom looks better than the white, which looks to me like she's in her underwear.

    The pose on that Erza bunny is nice but I don't like the face and don't think it looks like her. FREEing's 1/4 ITEM #740277 is better for that but it's just a standing pose:

    https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/take1231549793003.jpeg

    Due to some health issues I've been stuck at home a lot the past few months and I have watched the entirety of Fairy Tail (currently at 295 episodes!). It took me a while to warm up to it but I kept watching. Erza is a great character.

    That Battle Angel figure, and the movie, creep me out; those extra-large eyes on an otherwise normal human-looking person are just too weird for me.

    You have to read the manga, the anime doesn't do justice. Also Reika doesn't appear in the anime, except for some mentions. Oh I almost forgot the movie, Gantz:0, this figure is actually based on the design of Reika in this movie. The movie is really cool but it only covers an arc of the manga.

    I think they are trying to imitate the final part of the opening. There is really no scenes of clothes change or transformations of that type in the show. The show is not that great but I liked it until the end, which is bad in my opinion.

    going through the rest of the wonfes stuff a little more closely and the only other thing that caught my eye besides that 10/31 witch figure from Native was the third figure in the Elf Village Series from Vertex ITEM #806236 shame they wasted the second entry on a pretty boring looking loli figure but the concept art for this one looks really great. I initially had a bit of buyer's remorse on the first figure in the series but after living with her on my shelf for a few months I'm really glad I got her, so whenever this new one is ready I will be happy to get it.

    Chances are with Gatchaman and other stuff I won't get Reika. But since she has a gun, I thought she should be kind of tougher and not smiling. I want to see why she fights in that costume. At least the Dirty Pair wore a full bikini. But I do like the colors and futuristic stuff going on with Reika.

    It's going to take me a while to watch 295 episodes. I probably can't get the normal bunny girl figure unless something clever is going on like with Erza's sword pose. Maybe if a company made vintage Playboy bunnies at a racing event or something that would be good.

    I was sick a while ago with the flu. I know I probably got it from someone in a store. That person should not have been working. I should have told the person to keep the change. It was pretty bad and I didn't want to watch or do much of anything.

    Actually, from what I remember she never dress like that, I know I said this was based from the movie but that was for the design of Reika itself, the figure is specifically based on this illustration used in this blanket ITEM #513961

    The autor sometimes took some freedom with the chapters covers of the manga and put the female characters with skimpy outfits or even nude, like in this cover from chapter 327 where she is practically using this outfit.

    Also the surprise.

    She looks way better than the concept art. Not as anime. I wish they handled the Metal Gear Solid line like this. Too bad they didn't go beyond Sniper Wolf. Looks like I'm getting Scarlett now and watching the rest of them. Love Scarlett's suit texturing.

    Plus for people that didn't get Sideshow Collectibles Dark Phoenix. Seems to be very close to the same pose.

    Bishoujo Scarlett looks really awesome.

    If Dark Phoenix matches that art she'll be great too. Lately they have done a good job with that as with Supergirl.

    The outline of Poison Ivy suggests she'll have great hair at least.

    Baroness is supposed to come out in the summer as well. I hope she is just as good as Scarlett. If not there is always Zarana. They haven't announced her but I would bet she is after Lady Jaye if they continue the line.

    That looks great, and I don't see any reason the production figure shouldn't look the same or very close. There's nothing like Pinhead's pins that would be hard to manufacture, and she doesn't have the kind of eyeshadow that never makes it into the final product.

    Placard says Summer 2019 which seems very soon, so she'll be up for preorder very quickly I imagine.

    I almost forgot about Jinx.

    en.wikipedia.or...

    I bet she is next after Lady Jaye. We should get a bunch of exclusives for her. Masked, unmasked, and maybe blindfolded. She should be cool since she's Asian too. I still want to see some female villains though. I think there was a female Cobra trooper in one of the cartoons.
