It’s time once again for Figma New Fridays. This week offered a good amount of figma news. Not only was there information on release dates like I’d hoped, a new figma went up for preorder and we got a sneak peek at one in the works. So let’s get started!
Kurisu Makise: White Coat ver. Preorders Begin
From the popular game Steins;Gate which has been adapted into an anime and recently a movie, comes the genius scientist Kurisu Makise! Rather than her casual jacket, this figma features Kurisu in the white coat she wears in the lab. Equip Kurisu with one of her three brand new faces, crossed arms, or Future Gadget #12 for more fun. Her slippers are even removable! Kurisu retails for 3619 yen and is scheduled to be released in November.
I’m happy with the figma itself, but as for everything surrounding it, not so much. For starters, she barely comes with anything. The faces are just what I’d hoped (way more fitting than those of the first figma in my opinion), but could they really not think of anything else to include? Maybe the microwave, headphones, a metal oopa, or a manila envelope(maybe Okabe will some with some of these things?) The other thing is her price. Figmas are definitely becoming more expensive because 3619 yen is a lot for a figure with so few accessories. BUT none of this matters because I’m totally getting her. I’ll be waiting for you, Christina!
Okabe Rintarou Sculpted!
Okabe? Oh yes! To go along with Kurisu, the Mad Scientist is now sculpted. We’ll see him at Wonderfest at the very least, and he better come with some good stuff! And I better get a job…
Well, that’s all for this week! Do you have any figmas to look forward to on June 22nd or are you happier to see the zombie go up for preorder?
