December 20th already? I should probably buy presents…
This week was very slow in terms of figmas. And by slow, I mean that there was but one lone preorder. Still, it was a popular character, so let’s get started!
From the anime ‘Attack on Titan’ comes a figma of mankind’s strongest soldier, Levi!
•Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
•Three expressions are included: His standard face, an expression with clenched teeth ready for combat and a cold-hearted expression perfect for Levi.
•His dual blades are included for combat scenes, along with his Vertical Maneuvering Equipment and effects parts.
•Special hand parts to display Levi holding the blades in his trademark reverse grip are also included.
•The hooks connected to a wire that shoot out from the equipment are also included, along with his Scouting Legion mantle.
•An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
Levi retails for 4937 yen and will be released in June.
Like with Mikasa and Eren, Levi figmas preordered from GSC’s online shop will come with a rooftop di;stage.
Levi is definitely not my favorite character, but I am in a minority because Levi is very very popular with many SNK fans. Anyone who has been following Levi figures will surely know of the frenzy that took place when Sentinel’s Levi went up for preorder. And to have a decent figure from a lesser known company sell out so quickly, many were worried that securing the figma would be just as difficult or even more considering how quickly figma Mikasa and Eren’s preorders sold out.
This was partially true because at the time of writing, Levi is already sold out at places like Amiami and Hobbysearch. But I did not find Levi nearly as difficult to preorder as Mikasa(I didn’t even make the first release), in fact, amiami has already restocked him several times. Still, those wanting to preorder SNK figmas need to be on their toes because these things sell like hotcakes.
But let’s talk about the figure. Levi never has been a ball of sunshine, and this figure portrays that quality of his very well. Levi’s faces are scowling, scowling, and super scowling, and I have no problem with that. In fact, I love that gritted teeth face, and can’t wait to use the other two faces to shame every figma I own. I was quite satisfied with Levi’s accessories until I remembered that there isn’t a cleaning product in sight. I know that the 3D maneuver gear is an awesome accessory on its own that is probably difficult to manufacture, but since Levi is one of the few SNK characters who could actually come with something other than the gear, it’s a shame that nothing else was included. No mop, no bandana, no handkerchief, just Levi.
That’s why right now I’m betting that the second Wonderfestival exclusive will be a cleaning version of Levi. Just you wait!
Still, what we do get is enough for me, and Levi was an instant order.
That’s all for this week! Did you preorder Levi?
