WonFes 2009 kicks off, and while I am waiting for my Miku Hatsune Live Stage ver. figma, it looks like the figure gods were kind enough to bestow these figure previews upon us. The lovely ladies from K-ON! make their appearance in both scaled and nendoroid form!
Afternoon Tea Time!
Hopefully we will see scaled Mugi and Ritsu figures as well. Although I would like to see figures of the gang in their various Sawa-chan sensei provided cosplay. Via HobbyStock.

I would have to say that this is one of the best figures I’ve reviewed yet. The detail in the light blue and white stripes is amazing!
Maybe some fish at the bottom of the rice, or a cat hiding behind the bowl (more euphemisms, anyone)?
Of course, I wouldn’t mind a figure version of the lead-in into the bowl of rice. The bowl of rice itself is a visual red herring for a great scene in Episode 6 of K-ON!, in which Mio suffers an on-stage mishap and the subsequent wardrobe malfunction that ensues.
Please give me a figure of this, so I can view it from all the “right angles”
Such as this angle
The generous pantsu shot isn’t actually a screencap from the episode itself (but perhaps when the widescreen version comes out and gives a greater view of the action, it will be similar to this). Via Sankaku Complex, who themselves got it from the folks at 2ch.

Initially, I thought that my plea for K-ON! figures was answered, but then my hopes were dashed by this caveat: these are only trading figures. I now feel like a pothead who was just dealt a bag of oregano. Although I might still pick these up if I find them in the dealer rooms of whatever conventions I might find myself at in the next few months (probably Otakon).
Is it me though, or do Mio, Ritsu, Yui, and Mugi all look like they had a little too much of the snacks that Mugi brings into the club room? There are some serious thunder thighs on these girls. This band really needs to start playing death metal and crowd-surfing to work off those extra pounds that Yuji (the trading figure company making these) put on them. Still anxiously awaiting scaled PVCs, Figmas, and Nendos of my K-ON! girls.
Also, as a huge fan of the PS3 game Valkyria Chronicles, I noticed this and immediately geeked out. It’s Selvaria, one of the Empire’s generals and Valkyrur dominatrix supreme. As I just played through the DLC, including the Imperial missions where you get to play with Selvaria (“Behind her Blue Flame”), I am definitely hyped for this figure.
Is that a Valkyrian lance you are holding, or are you just happy to see me? (Don’t worry, she’s not a trap)
I’d get “behind” her “blue flame” anytime, although Alicia is still my favorite.
