Today Wonder Festival 2018 [Winter] took place in Japan and, as Kizuna Ai had promised earlier this week, a coloured version of her reacently announced Nendoroid figure was unveiled. However, there was other big news for Kizuna Ai fans. As I suspected, a figma figure of Kizuna Ai in the works! As you can see from the image above, which I got from the Good Smile Company’s YouTube Channel, Max Factory only had a little cardboard cutout stand-in to show, but I’m already excited! And as if that wasn’t enough, a 1/7th scale figure of Kizuna Ai, by Tokyo Otaku Mode x Stronger, was also announced.
Well, now I know not to nominate Kizuna Ai for the figma figure survey that the Good Smile Company is currently holding, but who should I nominate instead? There’s not much time left to decide… Anyway, that’s all for now. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
Just a few hours ago, Kizuna Ai, the Japanese “virtual” YouTuber, announced that a Nendoroid figure of herself is in development. She only had images of an uncoloured prototype to show, but she did say a coloured prototype would be unveiled at the Good Smile Company’s booth at Wonder Festival 2018 [Winter] on the 18th of February, which is only about a week away!
In January, 2008, a new type of figure was released as part of the limited edition version of the PS2 game The Confusion of Haruhi Suzumiya (which is of course, part of the The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya franchise). This figure was of Haruhi Suzumiya herself as a superhero and it marked the beginning of the figma brand of articulated figures, which are now ten years old!
Today, Good Smile Company announced that a figma of Kasumi, the main protagonist of the DEAD OR ALIVE fighting game franchise, is going to be produced by MAX Factory. For those that may be unaware, “figma” is a Japanese brand of high quality, but non-scale, action figures..This particular Kasumi figma really looks like it’s going to be a fantastic. And look at the size of those breasts! I’m not really into over-sized breasts, but these do look impressive. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a figma with a more endowed chest!😄
This exquisite figure by Max Factory of Marie Rose (from the fighting game DEAD OR ALIVE 5 Last Round) will be released next year in August, although you can already order it from various online stores, such as the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP.
Well, I didn’t expect this. Back in February I reported that a Nendoroid figure of Tracer (from the video game Overwatch) was going to be released in August, which was a bit of a surprise. Now, though, a figma figure of Tracer has been announced as well! It’ll be released in December and the price on the Good Smile Company’s website is listed as ¥6,296. For a figma, that’s a little bit on the expensive side, but Tracer looks absolutely magnificent, doesn’t she? As I said in the aforementioned post, I’m not really a fan of Overwatch, but I do like its character designs, so this figma figure is quite tempting, more so than the Nendoroid one…
Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
First of all, I don’t play Overwatch but I do like the designs for a few of the female characters in it, so when I saw this Nendoroid of the very popular Tracer today, it certainly caught my eye. She looks pretty darn cute, doesn’t she? As I’ve probaly mentioned before, I’m not really a collector of the Nendoroid range, but I’m continually amazed at the variety of properties that have be turned into Nendoroids. For example, there will soon be a Nendoroid of Kylo Ren from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But I’m still hanging out for a Nendoroid of Jill Valentine from Resident Evil. Come on, Good Smile Company, don’t let me down!😆
Nendoroid Tracer: Classic Skin Edition will be available in August this year and will retail for ¥4,537. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
