No real surprises from Sega-Prize at Dengeki Festival, much of what was shown is due within the next month or so, but it's hard to complain about getting new looks at some great upcoming figures! More than anything shown there I'm just glad to see new figures for Ben-To! It was a great series that was easily overlooked a few seasons ago. This was our first finished look at the pair of Sen "The Ice Witch" Yarizui and "Beauty by the Lake" Ayame Shaga in Christmas outfits. They'll be out sometime in November. They're shown alongside the recently released figure of Sen laying in her school uniform which is apparently cast-offable to reveal a one-piece swimsuit underneath.
Of course you can't have Sega-Prize without Evangelion. Evangelion Racing Rei Ayanami made an appearance in her race queen outfit. It's a pretty straight forward figure and I'm sure we aren't too far from seeing a similarly fashioned Asuka. Sega also has a new Versus entry featuring Awakened Unit-01 facing off against the Angel Zeruel. The two will be sold separately, but should be able to be connected by the base.
Sega-Prize didn't have their upcoming Asuna figure from Sword Art Online on display even though it comes out in December. Too bad, it's looking like it could be one of their best figures ever, but only a poster for it was shown (prototype can be seen here). They did bring back their Accel World Kuroyukihime figure in the black dress holding a butterfly mask. She'll be out in December as well.
Sega takes us up-close with the soon to be released Nichijou duo of Mio and Yuuko pulling off one of their typical classroom gags. Both come with several props and seem to also have an extra facial expression. They'll be out in November. A set of phone charms from Working'!! were shown depicting part of the female cast as little flower people. These come directly from the opening song Coolish Walk. At first it was thought that these would be trading figures, but here we're seeing them for the first time hanging from bead chain. I don't have a release date on these, but I'm guessing by November. The girls from Sega's arcade mecha battle game Boarder Break are getting the figure treatment in the form of super deformed mini figures. Fiona (with the yellow hair) has been popular enough to receive a trading figure from Takara Tomy in the past and has figures from Orchid Seed and Wing coming next year, but this will be the first time for Burechan, Dabuchan, and Kurachan. They're due out now. Meanwhile Another's Mei Misaki is back again, she's been a popular figure and a very fast seller. If you can find one she should be showing up now. Finally we have Kuroneko from Oreimo appearing in a white top and skirt while holding a straw hat behind her, she'll be out in November.
That's it from Sega-Prize! Check out the gallery for part of the line-up of figures coming out by the end of the year.
