Rumorpop: Wave may make more female-fan-friendly figures

Job posting hints at nothing too specific, but could male figures be on the horizon from Wave?

A new part-time job posting on the Wave Corp. website has caught our attention here at Tomopop. The job is with Wave in the field of figure development, with 1-3 people possibly being brought in. While that in and of itself isn't newsworthy, there's an additional comments box at the bottom of the listing ... and if my translating skills aren't rusty, the second sentence in that box starts out talking about "developing figures particularly intended for female fans" ("toku ni jyousei fan muke figyua kaihatsu").

That could include some more male-oriented figures from the same company who currently brings us the Beach Queens series. Beach ... Kings? Nah, I don't think we'll be seeing guys in Speedo swimsuits soon, but maybe a new line geared more toward the female fans. We'll have to wait and see, but perhaps tomorrow, we'll get a peek at Wonder Festival 2013 Winter if we're lucky.
