AGF 2013 (animate girls festival)

 

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I recently tried to remember that last ladylike thing I bought, but nothing except soy milk crackers really came to mind… I do think soy milk is a more ladylike choice though!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at some of the goodies on sale at the ‘animate girls festival 2013’ taking place this weekend! ♪

Event Details: http://event.goodsmile.info/event/event-1024/
==============================

This is actually the first time that GSC has taken part in this event! Although in the past we did borrow a part of Gift’s booth to display some figures! ♪

You can see GIFT’s AGF information this time around of their official website: http://www.gift-gift.jp/event/201311_agf2013.html. It’s filled with goods from popular series including ‘DIABOLIK LOVERS’ and ‘AMNESIA’! ♡

Anyway, let’s move onto the GSC sales information! First up are some goodies from ‘wooser’s hand-to-mouth life!’ ♪

First up we have a prerelease item… Not-so-Blessed wooser Charm of Love! It seems wooser finally believes himself to be a deity!

Some recently released items including the ‘wooser Metal Strap A & B’ will also be available, along with various other goodies!


From the Character Vocal Series we have the Vocaloid Earphone Accessories and the most recent Nendoroid Petites! ♪

Finally, we also have various Attack on Titan goods!


I want the Survey Corps seals and pings! The wings of freedom!! I personally also like the way the masking tape looks! (*´▽`*)

The latest rubber accessories will also be prereleased at AGF! ♪

Picktam! Attack on Titan: Part 1! ♡

If you buy a complete box at the event you’ll receive a bonus exchangeable expression for use on any character! (Top right on the above image!) I got my hands on some samples so let me take a closer look at them! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ


I was told I could open up one of the boxes… so without further ado…!


Picktam! is a set of trading rubber straps, so you don’t know which character you’ll get until the box is open! I wonder who I’ll get?!

Ta-da!!


Jean Kirschtein! ♪

Each Picktam! includes a removable hook strap!


Each strap also allows you to switch expressions around! ★

Each Picktam! consists of a flippable expression and hair parts, which can easily we swapped around! First you need to remove the hook…


Then you lift up the pull the hair part upwards…


I felt bad showing Jean without his hair, so I’ll use this example instead! (;・∀・)

Just like on the image above, you remove the hair and face and simply swap the face around for an alternate expression!

Here is how Jean looks with his alternate expression!


At the same time I decided to compare his size with a Nendoroid Petite Mikudayo… as you can see they’re about the same size! Jean looks a little worried about that Mikudayo…

Here is how the alternate expressions for each of the characters look! (`・ω・´)

Armin’s tightly shut eyes are adorable! There is also a secret character who has already been revealed on the GSC site to be Erwin Smith! His alternate expression hasn’t been shown yet though!! ( -ノェ-)

You can switch parts between characters for some interesting combinations! ♥

Swapping Sasha and Christa’s bodies! ♪

This Christa would surely break off a small piece of the bread and pass the bigger piece to me! On the other side we have a Sasha that seems strangely in tact with her feminine side! Σ(・ω・ノ)ノ!

Plus if you purchase a complete box at the event, a bonus exchangeable expression is included… let’s take a look at it!

An angry Mikasa Ackerman with a tear in her eye! An unusual sight indeed!!

The more serious the characters normally are, the better these silly expressions look on them! Here is the alternate side of the bonus expression…! ♪


Did you ever imagine seeing Levi Heichou with an expression like this?!
Not something you’re ever likely to see in the manga or anime… (゚A゚;)

Eren is using Armin’s body and Levi’s expression! I picked these to pose him looking rather dubious of Levi’s current expression…!

The ability to pick and customize using the different parts is what makes the Picktam series so great!

Have there ever been rubber straps with this much playability before…?!

I’m sure everyone will enjoy creating all sorts of interesting variations! ♥

Today at 20:00JST you can watch a Twitcast at twitcasting.tv/gscs_hirase which will be introducing the Picktam! series to everyone!

The twitcast will be by Shuu-chan-senpai and Oono-shi! I’m sure the addition of video will allow them to show much more than I was able to show with just photos, so be sure to take a look! ☆

Finally! I actually managed to sneak into the preparations for AGF a little while ago… here are some photos of the event hall! (`・ω・´)

This is how the GSC booth looks!

The following figures are planned to be on display for everyone who visits!

Nendoroid Eren!

Nendoroid Levi!

Benten!

* The figure displays are scheduled to begin in the afternoon at the event.

Be sure to stop by the booth if you’re attending the event!☆
