News Fridays Figma! *Ahem* Figma News Fridays! This week features the typical things like preorders, delays, and release dates as usual, but hidden deep inside is a gem of lovely teaser goodness! So let’s get started!
Shimakaze Sculpt Teased
Nendoroid followers likely recall the preorder hysteria that accompanied nendoroid Shimakaze as she went up for preorder. That her preorder sold out in minutes at most stores attests to the deadly combination that is cuteness and popularity. This is especially effective with nendoroid collectors who are no stranger to buying something based on cuteness alone. This is our first peek at the figma, and for now the only thing to look at is her cannons, but why do I have the feeling that this figma is going to be very impressive? At the very least, I’m excited to see the prototype!
And Miku 2.0 is there too!
Akane Isshiki Palette Suit ver. Preorders Begin
Another figma of Akane Isshiki, but this time she’s wearing her vibrant red Palette suit! Included are not only three charming faces, but everything she needs to show off her attacks! Akane will be brightening up your collection in February 2014 for 4200 yen.
I can’t seem to get away from Vividred operation, can I? It feels like every week I’m blogging about Akane, and this time even Homurei joined the party. This isn’t bad, but wow, so much Akane O_O’.
Futayo Honda Preorders Begin
Introducing Futayo Honda from Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere. ASide from her sleek costume, Futayo comes with three expression, wonderfully dangerous weapons, and even effect parts so that she can be displayed using her abilities. Futayo will be appearing on the figma Horizon in February 2014 for 4500 yen.
As with the girls of Muv Luv, Futayo’s design is something that I’ll never be able to like. Her overstuffed chest, small head, and black shiny legs that remind me more of a giant ant than anything else make Futayo appear less like a woman and more like a semi robotic fantasy. But that’s just me! It’s not necessarily Ms. Honda’s fault, designs like this just aren’t my taste and probably never will be. That aside, check out her spear! It’s crazy long!
That brings this week’s FNF to a close! What do you all think of this week? Interested in Akane or Shimakaze? Waiting for Rei? Maybe you feel differently about Futayo!
I’ll be back with more figma news next Friday and remember that you can also like the Facebook page for notifications of new posts.
