I can only assume, but due to high popularity and keeping tradition. Orchidseed are going to release the Super Sonico SoniComi Package Ver – Berry! figure. This figure has the same specifications as the other two colored figures, 1/5 Scale (330mm tall) and made from PVC.
The figure is expected to be released in June 2014 for 11,429 Yen. So if you missed out on picking up on one of the previous released figures, You have another chance. Pre-orders appear to be available from most of the respected online retailers still. I own the original white version of this figure and it is by far my favorite Nico-chan figure by a long shot, I cannot recommend this figure highly enough.
It has come to my attention recently regarding the amount of bootleg / dodgy looking Sonico figures that are appearing on Ebay.
Each day I am seeing more deals on the on line auction site. I cannot 100% guarentee that these are genuine or fake but I’m seeing many Sonico figures for sale from China using the press released stock photos claiming the official details and specifications on the figures but with their “buy it now” prices set way below the recommended retail price of legitimate retailers.
The general rule to follow is, if it’s too good to be true, it most likely is. Always shop around, compare prices and I don’t mean nothing against the Chinese but if you do order a Sonico figure, be sure that it ships from Japan because that’s where 99% of the figure manufactures, and sculptures are located.
For example I’m seeing dozens of potentially phoney auctions of the to be released Swimsuit Santa Ver figure which officially it a recommended retail price of 9,200 (around $90-120 USD) Yen with starting bids of only $20 to $30 USD. Which raises the question. Why would someone undersell a product for so cheap?
I personally only rely on Ebay for Sonico figures and other merchandise if the standard retailers are all sold out on what I am looking for. In addition, there are a whole bunch of official “prize” figures of Sonico which do actually retail for 1,500 – 2,500 yen. So don’t get confused with those being fakes.
With that in mind, I wish everyone a happy figure shopping experience.

In summary, when the PC edition of the game first came out, Windows 8 was not available for testing and development and therefore falls outside of the support scope. So in the future if you wish to continue playing Sonicomi on your PC, stick to XP/Vista or Windows 7.
It also appears that there will be some sort of SoniAni presence and stage show held on the 9th of Feb during the event. This particular festival is often a very big event for any Super Sonico releated announcements too.
The first video showing gameplay of a phto-shoot with Sonicomi in a white bikini. And the second being a montage of in-game clips and gameplay.
Nothing really new here from what we have seen on the PC edition but the graphics are a huge improvement.
The game’s website has also been updated with information on all the different tapestry prints you can receive as a gift depending on where you purchase your copy of the game from Sad to say that all of these retailers who are giving away the tapestry’s do not have English support on their websites, but I did post a few weeks ago that AmiAmi do have a good pre-order bundle.
Looking at the website it seems that the schedule for the entire season for DVD / Bluray release has already been announced. But remember kids, these DVDs won’t have English subtitles. I just hope that some western publisher decides to lisence the show for a Western release.
