I've slowly become a fan of Nitroplus' busty virtual idol and mascot, Super Sonico because I find her to have a rounder body when compared to other figures but her releases have been, well, mostly on the NSFW side of things or more gravure like because of her idol status. So it makes me happy that companies have taken to putting her in my favorite outfit, her tiger parka. With Nendoroid Super Sonico shipping on November 27, 2012, it looks like she is ready for the next stage in her career as a figma figure. Seen multiple times at events, Max Factory has now given the official preview of this popular idol.
Max Factory's figma Super Sonico brings her trademark headphones along with some gentle eyes and open smile. She'll also include a face that has her winking with a cute smile as well as her worrying face from doing something clumsy. The assortment of hands will be there to give Sonico all kinds of poses and she'll come with a guitar to rock on. Hey, you better not be recycling parts from your K-On! figma figures, Max Factory! To add to Sonico's adorableness, she'll include a part to make it look like she's wearing her hood and there's a tiger tail attached to her parka. Of course her breasts are ridiculous in size but it is to be expected and those legs are looking a bit round to go with those hips. Nice. When posing her right, her breasts are not so noticeable and can really make for some charming poses.
As I've stated before, with a Nendoroid release, a plush, and now this figma figure, I'm very hopeful that Sonico will be placed in her tiger parka for a PVC figure release. Fingers crossed! For the time being, look for Max Factory's figma Super Sonic Tiger Parka ver. to go up for pre-order tonight or November 20, 2012 in Japan depending on your location.
Update: Now available for pre-order. Max Factory's Super Sonico Tiger Parka Ver. is retailing for ¥3,810 and will be available in March, 2013.
