Not much to say this week, honestly. I continue to work on stuff. Since I finished Chapter 24 of Skies today, I’m switching off to work on Tasakeru for the next week. An alternating system keeps me from getting too burnt out on any one project, I think.
I’ve decided that I definitely want to go ahead with more episodes of Silent InvenTOYry, so I’ll probably put my first-ever Patreon earnings toward registering my copy of Vegas. I hate to delay pre-ordering Figuarts Super Sailor Mercury and Cure Mermaid, but it’s probably for the best. And hey, Tamashii said they’re expanding their distribution in North America this week… maybe I won’t have to pay through the nose for exclusives from now on, yeah?
Speaking of figures, this weekend’s bi-annual Wonder Festival beat out the last several of them combined. There were a ton of new announcements I’m excited for: Overwatch Figmas, starting with Tracer and Genji with more doubtlessly on the way, a Nendoroid of Akko Kagari from Little Witch Academia… I’ve had some bad experiences with Nendos, so they’re not normally my thing, but the Nendo Luluco from last year was almost too adorable for words and captured Trigger’s art style perfectly. I can only expect that they’ll do the same with Akko. And also from Figma, there’s… Maara, the, um, interesting creature from the Persona and Shin Megami Tensei series (LINK ALMOST CERTAINLY NSFW)… I don’t know how exactly they’re going to make an articulated figure out of that, but if anyone can do it, GSC can. You’d think they’d have learned after what people did with that infamous Revoltech Woody from Toy Story, though…
Speaking of Revoltech, though! I haven’t bought a Revo for years, but damned if I’m not going to have to break that streak. They showed off a really gorgeous and flexible Spider-Gwen, and revealed figures for Zootopia’s Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde! I just hope all of these releases are decently spaced out, because there’s still plenty of Precure Figuarts on my wish list… Happiness Charge figures this year, Bandai? Please?
Anyway, see you all next week.
