Alphamax's Sorceress gets a pre huge... errr, preview photo
Alphamax's Sorceress gets a pre huge... errr, preview
by Scarecroodle

While the age old argument of how big is too big may always remain up for debate, few might disagree that Sorceress passed that line by at least a mile. Alphamax's Sorceress's sizable assets (or boobset?) have received a preview via Akiba Hobby.

Sorceress, one of the characters from the Playstation 3 and Vita-exclusive Dragon's Crown, first saw pre-orders for her Alphamax-made figure go up in July before vanishing in August and ultimately reappearing earlier this month following a face revision.

While outrageously oversized breasts are no stranger to anime and video games, Sorceress takes things a few steps further although she still falls short of Cattleya's outlandish proportions. Assuming you can look past Sorceress's breasts (I'd suggest trying to focus on her eyes), you may notice that Alphamax has done a previously solid job adapting a somewhat problematic character design. The company has even gone so far as to give her an absolutely incredible base featuring a skeleton clutching a sword (which, by the way, is a lot cooler than Sorceress herself) which many are bound to miss because they're too busy looking at Sorceress's oversized melons. Seriously! Take your eyes off them for a second!

Alphamax's Sorceress features a nicely done, provocative pose where the character is hiking up part of her skirt as if to remind you that she's got more to admire than just the size of her chest. I like this rather coy move on Alphamax's part. Likewise, the face and hair also look great. This is a figure that I suspect that a lot of people would absolutely adore if not for that one (well, two) big distraction(s).

Alphamax's Sorceress is still available for pre-order and is slated to release in March.

Alphamax's God Eater Burst Alisa up for pre-order

Holy crap, Alisa.. I um.. I kinda want to grab your booty. I'm calling it right now. This version of Alisa Ilinichina Amiella is already worth the pre-order just to get a glimpse of that booty she's rockin'! Either that or th...

Sorceress of Dragon's Crown has her pre-orders revived

Last month, Alpha Max opened its pre-orders for its rendition of the Sorceress from Dragon's Crown. The figure was controversial to its design, and out of nowhere, was pulled from pre-orders. Now the Sorceress has been summon...

Alphamax's Velvet is a treasure indeed

The Shining series has its share of lovely Tony Taka designs, but I can't recall one quite so lovely as Shining Ark's Velvet. This is not the forest-dwelling bastard princess of Odin Sphere, but they certainly have a similar ...

Alphamax's Sorceress appears for pre-orders, is pulled

Well this is certainly something you don't see every day. Alphamax's take on the Sorceress from Dragon's Crown has caught a little bit of heat, mostly due to the controversial character design, but it had plenty of fans ...

Take a stab at pre-orders for AlphaMax's 1/7 Saber Lily

Saber Lily is just one of those designs that appeals. It's not flashy, bright, or overly adorned. Its beauty lies in its simplicity. Whenever a company has their take on the alternate Saber, it's hard to ignore the beauty. Al...

Take Alphamax's Asuna to the Fairy Dance

It's been Griffon who have been churning out figures based on Sword Art Online recently, but (fortunately) Alphamax has now decided to join the party, producing a rather lovely version of heroine Asuna. Based on her appe...

Take a closer look at Alphamax's delicious Meat
by Emily Smalara

Another Sena breaking from the bikini/uniform norm was put up to pre-order a couple months ago, and it's certainly hard to pass up such delicious meat dressed up like, well, delicious meat. Sure, she might technically still be clad in a bikini top and not-really-there skirt, but if you ask me the tail and ears are enough variety! Besides, who doesn't love a nice glimpse at those curves?

I still don't quite get Japan's "thing" for cow girls compared to the normal kemonomimi, but there's no denying the curvacious Sena fits the usual image to a tee, and does quite a nice job filling out this costume. I particularly like the little bell choker, and, of course, the stockings are an always appreciated touch. Any reader should know by now that you've got to seriously screw up a Sena to make me overlook her, but if for some reason you're still on the fence, peep this gallery from Akiba Hobby and see if she's a blue ribbon bovine or needs put out to pasture.

I can't get over how pretty and perfect this is!

[NSFW] Bite into a delicious Shirayukihime pre-order

I've said before that not all blatant fanservice figures are just trashy porn, and as usual, the masterful Tony Taka proves me right again. His earlier designs from Fault!! were absolutely gorgeous, and this original Snow Whi...
