Make it a shrine festival date with Aniplex+'s Mami figure photo
Make it a shrine festival date with Aniplex+'s Mami figure
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Aniplex+ is back again with another Madoka Magica girl clad in their best kimono. Joining Madoka and Homura is figure number three, Mami (Maiko edition) in a very cute pink kimono. The detail is quite exceptional with lots of bright and vivid colors, every piece covered in flower petals. Her hair has some very intricately sculpted and painted decorations and even her bright blue fan looks great! Just like with the other two this is certainly a figure made to impress. As if that wasn't enough she also comes with a little Charlotte figure laughing at her feet. 

The figure itself is 1/8 scale and stands at 190 mm. She's expected to be released in April at US$119.98. As an Aniplex+ exclusive she's only available directly through Right Stuf or Akiba Anime. Pre-order cutoff to guarantee a figure is October 31, but both shops have ordered additional figures in the past to continue taking orders after the date, though you're taking a big chance!

Oh, and check the gallery for a preview of the Sayaka and Kyouko figures!

Good Smile Company unveils Summer Wonder Festival exclusives
by Martin Siggers

Is it really almost Wonder Festival time again? Yes, though it might be difficult to believe, the biannual celebration of all things figure is almost upon us, and as ever headliner Good Smile Company has some neat exclusives to announce. Rather than a long drawn out tease like usual though, instead the company has just decided to cut to the chase and reveal everything all at once. Without further ado then, your WonFes exclusives are...

There are also two event-only charms of Wo-Class, plus the announcement of an online exclusive Ninja Slayer figma, although we've got no more details on that one yet.

As ever, GSC will have a limited quantity of exclusives on the floor (500 for the Dekacchu, 2500 for everything else) but those unable to attend will be able to grab any of the six main releases from the Good Smile Online Shop between 27th July and the 4th August. Any readers tempted to crack open your wallets for these?

SPOILERS ahead for the latest Madoka Magica movie!

While we saw her figma incarnation get revealed the other day, Aniplex have been working hard at a full scale version of Akuma Homura (from the new Puella Magi Madoka Magica movie) for quite some time now. Today Akiba Hobby got their hands on a prototype to see if that time was well spent.

I don't think I need to tell you how fantastic this figure looks. It's a worthy counterpart to Good Smile's Ultimate Madoka, being just as huge, elaborate, unwieldy and awesome. I'm loving details like the huge sweep of the skirt, the insouciant cross legged pose and the big wings. This preview also reveals that there'll be some replacement parts included - a choice between spread and folded wings, and between her soul gem and rather worse-for-the-wear Kyubey in the hand.

The only thing I'm a little uncertain about is the face. From some angles it definitely nails the gleefully sadistic look, but it can look a touch dopey from others. it's definitely no deal breaker though. There's still time to get Homura if you like what you see - she's an Aniplex Plus exclusive, but remember if you're in select countries, there's now an English language store you can buy from for the paltry price of US$199.
