More K-On! Figure previews

Following the trend of  popular series like Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu and Lucky Star, K-On! is starting to recieve the massive figure production treatment. We’ve already some of the figures that are already available for pre-orders like the Ivoice and Prop Plus Petit figures, and just a few days ago, Nendoroid Mio. Here are some of the other upcoming K-On! figures spotted at WonFes Summer 2009.

There has been some discussion at about the quality of Alter’s Mio and Yui, majority — even Danny Choo himself, stated that Yui looks much more in character than Mio, and I do agree with that. Mio doesn’t look bad, but she doesn’t look great either.

These 1/10 scale versions of Mio and Yui in their swimsuits are looking good! I can’t wait to see them painted. Being a figure newb, I keep on hearing about figures from Alter, GSC, Koto and the other big names — but after seeing some Wave figs — including Ayanami’s 1/10 scale figure — I’m starting to really like Wave’s figures.

Yui is looking abso-totally adorable! Mio is looking — flat. LOL. I seriously love the details on the guitar and bass! I’m not sure if they’re dollfies though *BJD NOOB* can someone fill me in?

Mobip Mugi and Yui figures

Mobip Mugi and Yui figures

Mobip is a fairly new series of articulated figures made by manufacturer Aoshima. You probably don’t hear much about them since the manufacturer isn’t that popular as well (had to search for Mobip via Hobby Search). I’m just glad that they actually made Mugi ahead of Mio! Don’t get me wrong, Mio fans — I love Mio too… but Mugi has a more special place in my haato. X3 Figure quality wise though, I don’t think they’re as impressive, but seeing these Mobip figures makes me wonder if Max Factory’s going to make K-On! figmas.

So far, those are the only K-On! figures that I’ve seen weeding through different blog posts about WonFes Summer 2009. Out of all of them, I might consider buying Wave’s figures and maybe Alter Yui… but I have a long extensive discussion to do with my wallet first.

    Yeah, Wave has stuff to watch out for, especially that Rei.

      Couldn’t help it, put a pre-order for Rei.

        Haha! Guess I’ll be hearing about her in a few months then ^^ Glad I could be of help to you finding a nice figure… couldn’t say I’m also helpful for your wallet ^^;

        Well, if you remember from me commenting on the “Rei Face” issue, I have known of her since she was announced, I just managed to stop myself from buying her till now ;)

        But hey, it’s the best Rei Ayanami figure I know, and she’s also the cheapest these days. Win, win, win. So long as the figure doesn’t have miscasts or poor painting.

        And yeah, I’ll review her when she comes out :)

        I think I’ll make a satirical figure review soon.

        Now I’ve realized why she’s so cheap though, 1/10 scale, only 16 cm, not 20 like 1/8. Then again, she’s worth it.

    I’ll probably skip all of them…they’ll fade in a year.

    I haven’t bought any figures by Wave yet. Maybe I should give them, and Griffon, a shot. ^^

      LOL. I do agree that I think most of the fandom hype will die sooner or later, I still love the music… but as much as I like the series, I don’t think I can keep up with collecting all of them.

      Yes! I think Wave and Griffon are making some awesome figures as of late… they might be trying to keep up with GSC, Koto and Alter
