[Figures] Oh I wish I could build and paint kits…

Japanese online shop Amiami has revealed what they are planning to sell at the upcoming Wonderfest Summer 2008, which I think is coming up just next week (the same weekend as Square Enix’s invite only fan event, DKΣ3713!). They have two garage kits and some character goods featuring their mascot character, Amiko. The garage kits are the kinds that pop up every now and then that make me wish yet again that I knew how to properly build and paint kits with any degree of competency… And even if I could, they are Wonderfest exclusives anyway. T_T




Sculpted by Osiris of Heavy Gauge, Kanu Unchou….as designed by Urushihara Satoshi….!!!! Major winning combo breaker if I’ve ever seen one…


Nitro+‘s Super Soniko illustrated by Tsuji Sanda. Can’t quite make out who the sculptor is…


I guess the hope is that they make the jump to pvc lol.

    Wish I could *sculpt* my own figures.. I don’t even understand the material they use…. if you ever find out, lemme know.

    hehe..well I think sculpters use a combination of some sort of epoxys and putties to make their initial sculpt. I don’t think the figures are actually molded/cast/however they do it in pvc/resin until they are ready to be mass produced.

    Which makes me wonder if sculptors ever make their own one of a kind figures? lol
    I think Yoshizawa Mitumasa of Reflect works on side projects that don’t get released to the general public, so maybe he has some rare, never before seen figures sitting around in his workshop lol. Which reminds me, Mitumasa I think will be at the WonderFest with a couple of new resin kit items: An Otomoairu felyne from Monster Hunter Portable 2ndG, and Persona 4’s Satonaka Chie.
