Hi everyone, iLikeLolis here reporting for duty again! I know my username is iLikeLolis and you might think “Hey I thought you were into lolis since your username says so!”. Yeah I thought so too, but there are some exceptions. It maybe the pose is good, I know the character and I like her and other factors which you already know. For those who don’t know Sonico, she is the official mascot of Nitroplus.
When we have anime figure displays, we’re usually given at least a month to prepare for the event. Why a month? Well, consider that not only do we have to invite lenders and record their figures to be displayed in the event, but we also have to layout the name tags for the figures and have further discussions with the organizers with regards to the floor space we have to work with. I think this is why our latest stint at TAGCOM 6 at Robinson’s Place Manila last March 31 to April 1 has got to be one of our most impressive showings yet. It may not have been as grandiose as our previous displays but given the extremely rushed preparation time we had, we’re quite proud of the showcase we had. Continue reading →
If you were to ask me, Sonico would probably be the ecchi equivalent of the twin-tailed virtual diva, Hatsune Miku. Both sport headphones, are musically inclined and insanely popular among their established fan bases. Now, chalk up another similarity to both of them as Good Smile Company is now lending their sculpting prowess to the sultry Sonico, as she joins GSC’s ranks of timeless characters turned into PVC figures.

Nitroplus’ sultry mascot, Sonico, has gotten quite the press lately, mostly due to the waves of figure releases of hers’ being announced. Gift continues the assault as they’ve announced a 1/6 figure that’s sure to contend for the ecchi-est Sonico crown. Continue reading →
Nitroplus’ busty moe idol, Sonico, has gotten quite a lot of figures recently despite her lack of exposure among the masses, owing her popularity more to her attractive character design and musical prowess more than anything. Orchid Seed’s Bondage Ver., in my opinion, is her unquestioned best figure as of the moment (as proven by the ridiculous secondary prices she now commands) and luckily, those who weren’t able to get her the first time around have a second life as the said manufacturer will be releasing her again, this time in a fresh candy pink color.

Normally, I would post my latest hauls as soon as I have my paws on them but my room is currently under renovation so I kinda’ lost interest posting my previous hauls when my personal stuff and other figures are all over the place (with my figure boxes buried in cement powder lol).
Nendoroid BGS is an obligatory haul because I’m planning to complete the BRS Nendoroid series. On the other hand, GSC Saber Alter is an impulse buy because of her crazy low price when a friend of mine dropped her pre-order and paid a huge percentage of the actual price. Orchid Seed Sonico Bondage Ver. is a must-have figure for a Nitro+ fag like me, but I’m hoping my mom doesn’t criticize me for this XD And then there’s GSC Miku which I got cheap despite being mint in box in exchange for dropping my pre-order slot for the re-released version. Finally, Nendoroid Yuki Miku Playtime Edition is another must have mainly because of the Miku tray mold included.
A new Super Sonico figure has been announced to be manufactured by a very, very unexpected company.
While there’s nothing actually surprising about yet another Sonico figure given that this busty entity is currently trending as one of the most milked (pun not intended) upon character by figure companies, what prompted me to put on a WTF stance is the company, Dive, who will manufacture the figure. You see, Dive is notorious for releasing figures of manly GANGSTER characters (except maybe Professor Layton) from different gangster-themed series as seen in this link.
Need I say more? Page after page of Dive’s figure release database will show you a pool of GANGSTERS (yep, I have to really emphasize that word) and adding Sonico to the equation is like throwing a handsome virgin lad in a den of hungry gay lions. Of course, you might see it as Sonico having her own huge harem of GANGSTERS, but that’s really off character.
No price, scale and release date has been set for this figure but I will surely be anticipating for a preview of this one. GANGSTER Sonico may not really be far off, lulz.
