Mikatan post gives us a few more close up of new announcements

Mikatan has posted a little gallery of photos from the Hobby Maker Exhibition that follows Wonder Festival 2013, and to no one's surprise, it's mostly of Good Smile and Max Factory items. 

There's some new stuff in here, and with all the WonFes news, I'm trying to remember what's super new and what's not. So let's go through a full rundown of what was in Mikatan's post, just to make sure we hit on everything, which you'll find after the jump. It was a bit long.

  • On the Nendoroid side, there's Maou (Maoyuu Maou Yuusha); Amy (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet); Monokuma (Dangan Ronpa); Darth Wooser and Ren (Wooser no Sono Higurashi); Chariot (Black Rock Shooter); and Kotoura Haruka (Kotoura-san) as newer releases joining the scene;
  • Definitely new are Nendoroid Kuji Alice and Takano Miyuki from Tomytec's Tetsudou Musume (Train Lady) series;
  • A Macross Nendoroid Petit series is on the way, with Lynn Minmay, Sharon Apple, Mylene Jenius, and Sara Nome on the way!
  • Black Rock Shooter Arcana designs for BRS and Strength are coming as Petits;
  • Gunvarrel and Chamber from Robotics;Notes are on the way, too
  • For pre-painted, static figures, we have Kuroyukihime (Accel World); a 1/8-scale Shinkai Shoujo version of Hatsune Miku with a crazy detailed base; Isshiki Akane (Vivirend Operation); TIsshiki Akane (Ano Natsu de Matteru); an adorable looking Nyaruko, complete with crowbar; Belldandy; Sheryl Nome; and Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls' Shibuya Rin in 1/8-scale. 
  • Also, getting her own shoutout is Fire Emblem: Awakening's Tharja and her butt;
  • figma #200, Hatsune Miku 2.0; Kaito; Cobra the Space Pirate's Crystal Boy; and Vivirend Operation's Kukori Rei and Isshiki Akane.
  • FREEing is doing a 1/8-scale summer festival version of Madoka, and it appears the other girls, too
  • And finally, headphone jack accessories featuring Miku and other Vocaloid fan favorites

Phew, quite a mouthful!
