Hello, and welcome to Figma News Fridays! This week was another slow one. Max Factory gave us a break by putting only two figmas up for preorder, and announcing nothing new, but there are delays and release dates to see, so let’s get started!
Tsukihi Araragi Release Date Announced
After having her planned release pushed back a month, Tsukihi is back, and ready to go platinum mad all over your wallet. She’s set to hit stores on December 12th!
I just paid for Karen, so it’s great to know that the whole Arararararagi family will be together soon.
Yui Takamura Preorders Begin
Yui is from Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse and retails for 3619 yen. She’s set to be released in April 2013.
An easy pass for me. Besides knowing nothing about her origin, I find the Muv-Luv designs to be very aesthetically unappealing…
Sayaka Miki Uniform Version Preorders Begin
Sayaka is from Puella Magi Madoka Magica and retails for 3048 yen. Her release is scheduled for April 2013.
An instant get for me, although I’m a little dissapointed by the accessories. Ignoring the obvious lack of a depressed facial expression, it’s odd that Sayaka is missing a soul gem accessory, especially after Mami had one. Then again, she seems to be lacking a ring as well, so perhaps this figma in meant to depict Sayaka in a happier time. At least we get her magical girl hairclip, and bats…lots of bats.
Well, that’s all for now. See you next week!
