Ah! Is it Friday already? I woke up from a nap and suddenly realized today was the day for figma news.
This week has a little of everything. We have a release, a painted preview, an extra long delay, and surprisingly little from scans. So let’s get started!
Guts: The Hawks ver. Delayed
Guts has been delayed from September all the way to November.
Guyver I Appears in Scans
I’m not quite sure what happened with scans this month, but rather than the beautiful scans we are usually blessed with, all that came around this time was low quality photos. Still, it seems that Guyver has a new face? And based on the random numbers I’m seeing, it looks like his preorders will begin in December 2013 with a release in April 2014.
The prince of ice cream is here! A lot of people have been waiting a long time for this figma. I never thought I’d see him
Once I pay for mine(orz), he’ll be on the way, so I’ll be reviewing him~
Akane Isshiki Pallet Suit ver. Previewed
The abundance of butts in it’s promotional artwork tells me that Vividred Operation is not a show for me(if you don’t know what I’m talking about, just treat yourself to a Google image search), but Akane is looking rather nice! I’m not sure what this outfit is for, but her accessories are neat, and that face with her tongue sticking out is just the variety I like to see on figmas. I hope to see the other cast members in similar clothing!
Even if I don’t know what this outfit is for, I can at least make something up. The way I see it, she’s a marching band member with a Duel Disk, Gurren Lagann glasses, and Iron Man feet…who is from Pallet Town.
She’ll be released in February 2014 for 4000 yen. Preorders have not yet begun, so we do not know if she’s exclusive or standard, but if that release date is indeed correct, I’d think it would lean towards the former.
That’s all for this week! Are you waiting for Kaito, frustrated by Guts, interested by Isshiki, or anything else?
