Aniplex's special goods shop, Aniplex+, has laid out their plans for this year's winter edition of biannual figures event, Wonder Festival. They'll be bringing back the Saber 10th Anniversary ~ Royal Dress Version from Comiket 87, but this time it will be a painted prototype and they'll be taking orders. Beyond that, there's the limited Tomoe Mami bath towel ver.
Unlike some figure lines, Medicom Toy's premium Real Action Heroes has a fairly good balance of gender in its subject. And, those looking for some guys to add to their collection will be pleased to see that Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works] Archer and the Dark Knight version of Berserk's Guts are the next two offered, with the two 30cm figures respectively coming in October for 25,488yen and November for 32,400yen.
Takashi Takeuchi's cover art for Garden of Avalon has been previewed. This novel, newly written by series creator/TYPE-MOON co-founder Kinoko Nasu will be released with the first Blu-ray box set of Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works], selling for 39,000yen + tax and shipping March 25th. Get a look after the jump.
Broadly speaking, Wonder Festival is to figures what Comiket is to doujinshi. While there are plenty of garage kits and customs, familiar figures makers also bring their goodies. With the event coming up February 8th at Makuhari Messe, in Chiba, Japan, Good Smile Company has previewed their semi-event exclusive figures, offered at WonFes, online during the event, and in some cases at other events.
With the first collection of Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works] set to ship internationally on March 25, Aniplex has posted a preview of the soundtrack CD that ships along with the 13 episodes in the 39,000yen (before taxes) package. Get a look after the jump.
The cover illustration for the upcoming Fate/stay night (Unlimited Blade Works) - Blu-ray Disc Box 1 is officially revealed to public today. The illustration is newly drawn by Takashi Tekeuchi, the original character designer of the 2004 game on which the TV anime is based. Check the art and photos from the Akihabara stores after the jump.
Good Smile Company has scheduled a pair of figures Fate/stay night figures for spring 2015 release. Their chibi Nendoroid take on Unlimited Blade Works version of Rider will be joined by their distribution of WING's Saber ~Last Episode~, the ever-popular servant as she was illustrated for the Realta Nua PS Vita port of the original visual novel. Get a look at the pair after the jump.
Wave, makers of the Beach Queen swimsuits have brought together Fate/stay night's Saber, Saber (Lily), Saber (Alter) and Saber (Extra) for a set of lingerie clad 1/8th scale statues. The 20cm figures sell for 10,584 yen individually for 48,600yen for the decidedly harem-ish group with special LED lit acrylic case, cushion and clearfile. Get a look after the jump.
