Captivating Comiket Figure Showcase

Dec 29, 2011 @ 6:37 CST


A combination of known upcoming, as well as entirely never before seen figures and concepts were being exhibited at Comiket 81 – teasing us with plans of a nendoroid for Mawaru Penguindrum’s “Princess of the Crystal”.

It’s not merely the princess however who is tantalizing us in nendoroid chibi form, a mystical butterfly winged female from soon to release sci-fi series of 2012, Accel World, can be seen attracting attention as well. In addition, there seems to be a full family of Minami-Ke chibi sized figures to come – and even some pint sized variants of MajiKoi characters as well.

Fate/Zero’s Irisviel, although unfortunately not in chibi form, can be seen on display as a rather exceptional Figma with movable joints. Unlike most Figma’s, the joints on Irisviel are well implemented within the overall design of the figure – preventing them from awkwardly standing out or diminishing the aesthetics, as is commonly seen with a good portion of Figmas. The colors are amazingly spot on – with her blouse of a deep red truly standing out, and her silvery white hair having a lavishing glow to it.

Further below, one can see several more sculpted creations of interest – flat chested Inami of Working!!, an undressed soapy Sonico with simply a bath towel, and more to our tastes, a fruity pink flavored gothic lolita. This is indeed the most colorful Kuroneko has ever been.

The final two figures are both of superb detail – yet in very much different ways. The Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier to release in May of 2012 caters to the numerous Fate fans – showcasing a female determined and powerful with an affixed expression of one with a goal in sight. On the other hand, the final figure is a brazenly erotic sculpture which exhibits a willingly submissive female, or perhaps one who was simply caught in a very elaborate series of erotic coincidences which let up to this point.

No matter, all these figures are definitely looking great – and with each passing season, one can see the overall quality have improved just that much. And of course, if we’re shown a figure from a specific series, example being the Figma of Fate/Zero’s Irisviel, there’s a fair possibility of many more characters to come from that same series.

  • Saber & Saber Motored Cuirassier… May, 2012.

    … May, 2012.

    …… May, 2012.

    In all seriousness though, with respect to that final figure, what IS up with that "keep out" sign? …C'mon, you've gotta admit that's in rather bad taste.

    • Seven says:

      That “keep out” sign indeed ruins the whole purpose of display – anyone looking at that figure close enough to notice any “interesting areas” would have been specifically looking for them from the beginning.

    Fate/Zero Berserker figure confirmed: http://i.imgur.com/b8oBb.jpg

    • Ah, I was wondering when Fate/Zero’s resident badass would be getting his own figure. Looking most awesome, as expected. ;D

      A bit of curiosity about that sword he’s holding though. Does it not look a bit like a variation on Saber’s Caliburn?

      Regardless, the only male figure you’ll be getting iirc, Seven. You must be excited.

      • Seven says:

        Very much so – I’m definitely getting this, even if I have to set aside female figures I want to be able to afford it.

        However there is a single aspect bothering me, if only they could make it emanate black residue then it would be perfect.

        • I’m not much for doubting that they could have done that if they really wanted to, though the price would likely have shot up a considerable amount for such a painstaking addition; in which case few sales… etc, etc.

          Berserker’s still awesome though.
