I can't guarantee I'll be doing this kind of thing regularly, but I felt like doing one of these round-up kind of thingies tonight. A few pre-orders went up this evening that fall into the "awesome" and "anticipated" arenas, so I thought I'd just give you all the alert in one post.
figma Araragi Karen is looking pretty awesome, and I love the short hair look. She's got that ¥3,333 retail tag and is set for release in October, for now. (manuf: Max Factory; fame: Nisemonogatari)
Nendoroid Nyaruko is another cutie-patootie with a lovely little black and white checkered dress, a weapon and a... demon? I can't say I'm too familiar with the source material, but I think some folks might end up pre-ordering based on the cute factor alone. She's slated for release in November with a ¥3,330 retail tag.

Nendoroid Saber (Zero ver.) is a release I know a lot of folks are excited about. Tian posted about her earlier with a recap from Mikatan's blog. Her escape is slated for October and she's retailing for ¥3,810. (manuf: Good Smile Company; fame: Fate/Zero)
ArtFX Bishoujo Jaina Solo is one of my most wanted figures of this year. Generally, I would suggest waiting until the figure hits stateside retail and ordering from your local comic book store, but I understand some folks might still end up importing. If that's your style, she's retailing for ¥6,800 and is set to fly out in November, with just enough time to make it to my house for Christmas. She's a beauty, and I hope she's a hit.

Love Plus' Nene, Rinko and Manaka are looking surprisingly great. I love that the kinda muted colors more or less match their appearance in the game. I like the pastel look to them and I hope they turn out as nice as they seem. They're slightly on the pricey side at ¥8,000 each, but that's because they're 1/6-scale. If you pre-order one or all, they'll be swinging by for ice cream sometime in the fall. For the record, Nene is definitely my kind of girl. (Manuf: Clayz; Fame: Love Plus)
