Wonder Festival is in five days and counting – stay tuned for further coverage, coming soon.

Goodsmile leads the news today with the official announcement of their Nanoha (instructor’s uniform ver.) PVC (first scooped two weeks ago here) from Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. She’s coming out in June at 5,800 yen retail and 1/8 scale, approximately 20 cm tall (base included) and with a sculpt from Tokunaga Mitsunori. She’s now available for preorder at Amiami and should be up elsewhere soon.

A couple of releases we’ve mentioned here in the past few days are now up for preorder – first is Yamato’s Dynamite Keikaku Kanu Unchou (alternate color ver.) from Ikkitousen, complete with spiky balls in place of the standard chain anchor blocks that accompanied the original version. She retails in April at 13,440 yen.

Toy’sworks’ Miyamoto Rei from Highschool of the Dead is also now available, with the additional news that one of the two torsos she comes with is a “soft chest part”. Yet another gimmick to provide a rationale for the high price of 7,800 yen retail; as earlier reported, we can expect her release in late May.

Those who don’t mind purchasing through a proxy service can take advantage of the newly reopened order status for the Q-six Linda-designed Hitozuma Fujisaki Touko resin kit, which sold out soon after its initial release but is now available for order once again (directly from Q-six only, alas). I wish they’d put up jpgs instead of those crappy gifs for sample images, they make her look like she’s carved out of wood…

Moving on to Wonder Festival news, site updates from Volks, Dengeki Hobby, and Hobby Stock bring a look at what we can expect from them in the industry hall. Of particular interest from Volks is their Hatsune Miku resin kit, along with a Narika resin we can assume will eventually follow their Haruka (from Alice Soft’s Choukou Sennin Haruka) in PVC form. From Hobby Stock comes the news that they’ll have a color prototype of their Tsuzuri PVC from Terios’s Lycoris Radiata on display, which is scheduled for HS limited release later this year. We’ll bring further details on these items as the event approaches, and after.
