Good Smile has been on a roll with their A Certain Scientific Railgun Nendoroids recently, with both Mikoto Misaka and Kuroko Shirai being smart, good looking and well accessorised releases. You'd think the obvious step ...
Just when I think I'm started to get bored of seeing Nendoroids looking cute and doing cute things Kahotan posted some very squee-worthy photos of Nendoroid Kuroko (last seen at Wonder Festival) messing with a Nendoroid Misaka. Seeing it reminds me of good times laughing and sometimes cringing at Toaru Kagaku no Railgun. The series had some good and bad moments but really, for the most part it was great fun. It's nice to see that some of it can be re-created in Nendoroid style.
Though Kuroko is fun to pose with other Nendoroids she has a ton of accessories just by herself. She comes with handcuffs, her school bag and iron arrow holster, three different expressions and most epicly a pair of frog panties that obviously belong to Misaka. Only she would wear panties with a frog pattern on them!
Check out the gallery to see all of the cute photos, including some censored ones that show other Nendoroids wearing Misaka's panties.
We saw her just a few days ago, but now Tokiwadai's electric princess, Mikoto Misaka, is available for pre-ordering in painfully adorable Nendoroid form. For your ¥3,334 you'll be getting some cool effects parts and not o...
As revealed this morning by Mikatan, Good Smile Company are going back to the schoolgirl well for their next major Nendoroid release. Fear not however since it's a good one, as A Certain Scientific Railgun's Mikoto Misaka will finally be joining the big-headed brigade.
Mikoto isn't the most distinctive looker in the world but as ever GSC have done a great job with her distinctive face and hair and it's a really cute design overall. The attention to detail extends to her trademark skirt and shorts combo, and she's also provided with not one, but two embarrassed faces. Clearly they're expecting a lot of compromising snapshots. Also in the box are some neat electric effects parts and Mikoto's frog themed Gekota phone.
I'm not sure how well the all-action Mikoto really fits as a Nendoroid, but I can't deny she's very, very adorable. For those of you who fancy a little shock in your collection, the Electric Princess will be available for pre-orders from this Thursday, the 11th.
Chara-ani is back again with a second figure from the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S anime series, this time featuring title character Mikoto Misaka in a rather compromised position. The first figure was a rather unabashed ve...
Last week we got a glimpse of the latest Dengeki exclusive, a new swimsuit version of everyone's favourite electric-powered tsundere Mikoto Misaka. Details were frustratingly thin on the ground at the time but now a few more have emerged, so let's round them up.
Firstly, as I guessed, the mysterious manufacturer has been identified as Kotobukiya. That can only be good news, as their stuff remains top-notch, so quality is assured. Mikoto's also confirmed to be a whopping 1/6 scale, way bigger than you'd normally expect, measuring 28cm from top to bottom. There's also some official pictures for you to check out in the gallery below.
Naturally, this isn't coming cheap. Mikoto's list price is ¥8400 but as a mail-in exclusive you'll need to go through a proxy, and such a large figure won't be cheap to ship either. Nevertheless, that's not actually a terrible price for an exclusive 1/6, and she's looking extremely sharp, so if you're willing to make the investment there are some pre-order links for you below.
Dengeki gets a bunch of great exclusives and it looks like they've captured another one, as shots have leaked out showing the magazine has a new version of A Certain Scientific Railgun heroine Mikoto Misaka waiting in the wings.
It's yet another swimsuit figure too, which is a bit of a disappointment - when will we get a truly great regular version? - but even though it's treading a well worn path this is still quite a looker. There's a great pose with a unique hose accessory, swappable happy and embarrassed faces and a cast-off wet t-shirt option, which is certainly a neat piece of painting and texturing if nothing else.
The quality looks great judging by these preview shots, but the manufacturer of the figure remains a mystery (I'd wager on Kotobukiya), as does the scale, price, and in fact pretty much everything else about it aside from its exclusive status. Hopefully once the next issue of Dengeki comes out we'll get some more solid details, but she's impressive enough that I suspect people will already be preparing their proxies of choice. We'll be sure to update you when more information comes to light.
Some big news came out of the Griffon booth at Treasure Festa in Ariake 9. The biggest of which, at least for anime fans who like to wax nostalgic, is the announcement of two Silent Möbius figures, one of Katsumi in a sw...
Well that was fast. Barely more than a week after we confirmed her existence through scans, Griffon's version of the Certain Scientific Railgun is complete, painted and up for pre-order! Kudos to Griffon for th...
With the second season of A Certain Scientific Railgun now in full swing more figures of heroine Mikoto Misaka were an inevitability and the latest scans have shown that it's going to be Griffon first off the mark. Shots show they're preparing a 1/8 scale Mikoto in a very cool looking pose, although given there's no face detail or paint we're looking at a pretty early prototype. We do get a price though, ¥7,800.
The scans also tease a figure from the recent A Certain Magical Index movie and while it's just a silhouette, that big flapping headdress is a dead giveaway that this is the titular Index. I've always thought Index has a great look for figures so I'm somewhat surprised we haven't seen more of her in recent years. Let's hope Griffon can pull these two off.
She's been available for pre-orders for a while, but today Danny Choo was able to give us a much closer look at Kotobukiya's upcoming beach version of Mikoto Misaka and I dare anybody to not be absolutely charmed by what we see.
I'm not normally one for swimsuit figures but this one is simply adorable. Mikoto looks relaxed and happy and her (refreshingly modest) bikini is incredibly cute and beautifully sculpted and painted. Frills and polka dots? I'm in! Then there's that marvelous base, with its awesome and clever see-through water effect. That little splash she's kicking up just seals the deal perfectly and its a rare example of a base adding a huge amount to the overall look of a figure.
It's such a smart looking figure it's causing me to seriously waver on my stance towards swimsuits. If you're more decisive than me about wanting to take her home with you, hit up our pre-order post.
With the To Aru Majutsu no Index movie packing out cinemas, it's good times for the franchise and the perfect opportunity for Chara-Ani to release an upgraded set of its Toy's Works' super deformed trading figures.  ...
