Figma News Fridays: 7/3/15

Welcome to…July?! Already? That is not ok.
But what is ok is that there were only two preorders this week! I mean, I love figma news, but I also love not being tempted by too much plastic goodness. So let’s get started!

Tuesday

Iona Preorders Begin

From the anime film ‘Arpeggio of Blue Steel -Ars Nova- DC’ comes a figma of Iona!

Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
She comes with three expressions including a gentle expression with her mouth open, a blank expression and a slightly embarrassed smiling expression.
Optional parts include a starfish, tea cup with saucer and data rings.
She also comes with a special lower body part to display her sitting in the cute pose she takes in the film.
An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
Iona retails for 6000 yen and is scheduled for a November release.

Why yes, ‘Arpeggio of Blue Steel -Ars Nova- District of Columbia’.
Iona is one of several figmas announced from the series, but the first to go up for order. The blue in her colors palette is very calming and I love the wacky details in her skirt. But my favorite pose has to be the one with the smiling face and tea cup. Sadly the very cool chair which cements the pose is a shop exclusive.
Iona is a pass for me, but she looks good!

Friday

Egashira 2:50 Rerelease Preorders Begin
Egashira 2:50 preview page
The legendary comedian ‘Egashira 2:50’ is joining the figma series in his most well known outfit – no shirt and black leggings!

Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
He comes with three expressions including a smiling face, a surprised face and shouting face.
He also comes with special parts with his hand pushing out his leggings in order to recreate the famous ‘Don!’ scene.
A articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
Egashira retails for 3619 yen(those were the days) and is scheduled for a release in January 2016.

This is Egashira’s third release! The first two were in 2013, and now this one is for 2016. Like wine and memories, Egashira ripens with age.

That wraps up this week! Do you have a blue figma cutie or Egashira on the way?
