Wonder Festival 2012 Summer: figma start the madness

WonFes is finally underway, so with that comes the infux of new products. First up to go through the networks are a batch of five brand-new figma prototypes. This is just the tip of the iceberg, so let's just go ahead and dive in.

The most odd thing I've seen in some time is the planned figma by Freeing of Japanese comedian Egashira 2:50. Yes, that is a fist coming from his pelvis and I'm not really sure how to explain it. I'm not going to try to explain the context, so agree that this is odd at the least and move to next couple of announcements.

Since she has a PVC coming in the near future, we're getting a look at what will be the figma version of Ultimate Madoka. In what is set to be monstrously large (and probably not made) is the armor of Scarlet Rain from Accel World. We previously saw Nyaruko-chan in the last batch of figure scans, but now we get to see the prototype in full color. Also from the scans is Nanoha from her 2nd movie appearance. Last of the visible prototypes for now is Super Sonico, so there's some fans out right now that will be very happy at that news.

Outside the scope of camera, for now at least, is the titular Cobra of Cobra: The Space Pirate and the announcement for two new figma from Sword Art Online. There's more to come, but this first batch is worth discussing. Surprised? Excited? What else do you see coming in this weekend?
