Hobby Round 9: Slayers CharaGumin

It's no secret how much I love Slayers. It has been my favorite anime since back in the 90s when it came out. Now, what some people may not know is that Xellos happens to be my favorite character in the entire series, so it's...

We've seen these babies in prototype form before at the previous Hobby events, but we're now getting to see the man with the gorgeous blonde locks in full-color form. Poor Gourry Gabriev may have the brains of a jellyfish, bu...

Wonder Festival 2012 Winter: Volks, I love you!!!

Do you see the banner above? That's all you need to know!! Volks are releasing Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles as the next figure in their Charagumin line of colour resin kits. No oversized chest, no dodgy swimwear, and not based on the anime design but the original game!!!

Charagumin was clearly the focus of the Volks booth this time around as we also got to see Kanu from Ikkitousen, Pai from 3x3 eyes, Canal Vorfeed from Lost universe and Naga and Lina Inverse from Slayers joining Selvaria on display. There were also some puyo puyo figures as well so it looks like the line isn't going away anytime soon!

There was also Nagisa from Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity and P-01S Horizon from Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon as well as various characters from the Strike Witches series appearing for the Moekore plus line of PVC figures and, rather interestingly, what appears to be a new kit for the Five Star Stories. From the design and accessories, I believe it's the LED Mirage with Flamer equipment. Don't quote me on that though!

My eyes are all over the Selvaria anyway. The pose with Rhum (her rifle) looks great and appeals to me more than the other releases with her Valkyira weaponry. Anyone else interested in what Volks have on offer?
