Very excited! I hope to see a painted version and release dates of GSC Homura, QuesQ Hoozuki, and if a miracle happens Megahouse Gilgamesh after 2+ years of showing the sculpt. A prototype of GSC Nadeko would be nice and I expect and announcement the rest of the Free! cast from Alter.

Do you know any good sites for tracking WF photos on the day of? I know pics will be on the usual sites a few days after, but seeing stuff as it comes in would be nice. I know of searching MFC photos tagged WF2015S, but not sure of anything other than that. I see that GSC is doing a live stream off their NicoNico account, but I think it's just about repairing broken figures. I wish I knew what Tumbler or other photos social media things were all about.

Yeah, I liked that Hozuki too. Just worried that Ques Q has been sitting on the design a bit long but the club nails it. I haven't seen any timely news sources save for the Neko Magic teaser that I'm sure you've already caught:

I'm stoked for news on this Saber:

I like Huke’s take on Saber. I’d like to see him do more illustrations for other characters he didn’t create.

Seems like the GSC Miku they announced last WF is ready. I like the skirt and stockings and interested to see how they will pull of the transparent keyboard keys.

I just watched GSC July NicoNico video and it looks like WF is streaming their main events stage. There will be daytime and nighttime broadcasts. Looks like the daytime stage is musical acts (and for some reason Bandai Visual announcing an anime project) and the nighttime is more centered around discussing (and I assume showing) figures at the show.

Good choice making Cheerful Miku your 1000th. Very deserving. Omedetou-♪(ノ⌒∇)ノ*:・'゚☆。.:*:・'゚★゚'・:*:.。.:*:・'゚:*:・'゚☆。

Thanks! I'm probably going to release her tonight. Regarding the Huke fig, I'm curious how her spiraly Huke-eyes will look.

Do I have to have an account to view those streams? I'm just sort of banging around since I'm not sure where everything goes.

I guess it is a sign that GSC is recognizing it's international audience, I picked up Mikasa from the post office today and she came with English instructions on putting things together. Even with instructions, she was stil a pain with several wires going in different directions and tiny holes.

Not sure what this is from, but damn it looks cool

That's the Huke Saber I linked to earlier. Above that is Ruby Rose from RWBY, a self-proclaimed domestic "anime".

Yes and no. I don’t think you have to have a NicoNico account to view videos, but for live streams if there are more than 10,000 people watching, they will auto kick out non premium users. However, you can timeshift streams without a premium membership, but that means you will be able to see the stream after it is done for an unset amount of days after it ended. However, you’ll have to create an account to timeshift. I only pay for a premium membership during AKB48 senbatsu sousenkyo season, so mine is expired. There were about 25K people watching yesterday so I timeshifted. The figure discussion should start in about 50 min at http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv226055658

I’m on the fence about getting her. I may consider if anyone is wanting a group order.

That Miku turned out really nice. Not sure if it competes with the Mikus that have come out in 2015, though. But on the other hand, plaid skirt...

Overall I like what I've seen from WF 2015 Summer. Not much of anything (that I've seen so far) that has made me stop in my tracks, but I like the progression of things I've been looking forward to.

They added Shiro to Hoozuki! All the more reason to get. I assume Shiro will be a Dengeki exclusive, but hope it won’t.

Painted Homura looks nice. Waiting for the other three.

GSC’s Bride Saber battle version. Anxious to see the painting since I can’t find a reference illustration.
Image

Aquamarine’s Shinsengumi Saber. I guess some people have to have all kinds of Saber.
