Figma Tracer (from “Overwatch”) Out in December!

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!

Nendoroid Tracer (from “Overwatch”) Out in August!

Nendoroid Tracer 01First 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!

LEGO Dimensions Trailer for E3 Released!

A trailer for the 2016 wave of Lego Dimensions sets has just been released and there’s plenty of cool stuff in it! You can check the trailer out below.

As someone who grew up in the 80s, I’m really excited by the Gremlins, The Goonies and E.T. sets. And although I couldn’t see it the trailer, there are reports that Knight Rider will also have a set. I hope this is true, because I absolutely loved Knight Rider as a kid. But I don’t know how many (if any) of these sets I would actually try to get: the Lego Dimensions sets are a bit pricey, after all. As a matter of fact, I still haven’t got the Back to the Future set from last year. Back to the Future is one of my favourite movies of all time.[^_^]

I’ll definitely be writing some follow-up posts once these sets are released, but for the time being, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
