August 10th!


Umi Sonoda Preorders Begin
umi sonoda preorder pageFrom the anime series ‘LoveLive’ comes a figma of the μ’s member in charge of lyrics, Umi Sonoda! Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes. Three expressions are included: a smiling expression, an angry expression to get upset with Honoka and an embarrassed expression that suits Umi-chan’s personality perfectly. Optional parts include her school bag, a quiver to show that she is a member of the Kyudo club and the diet plan from the second season of the anime. Just like the previously announced LoveLive! figmas, she comes with two glow sticks of her image color. An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

Umi retails for 5370 yen and is scheduled for a January 2016. Preorders of figma Umi Sonoda from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Blowing Kiss Expression as a bonus! umi bonus
This product will be available at the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP. Orders can be placed between the 6th August 2015 (Thu) from 12:00JST and the 2nd September 2015 (Wed) at 21:00JST.

Being a Love Live fan must be suffering.
The bonus expression is actually good this time which is very scary.
As for the expressions Umi comes with, I love the angry face. Her embarrassed one is cute too, but something about that default open mouthed expression makes me think of Homer Simpson. In a bad way.

That wraps up this week! Are you buying into the Little Armory series. Have you preordered Umi? What news *cough* are you *cough* hoping to *cough Lucina cough* see next?


One thought on “Figma News Fridays 8/7/15

  1. Umi’s angry expression is great, and her exclusive face is one of the best ones they’ve had. I’ve not gotten into the idol madness and haven’t seen Love Live so I’ll be passing on her.

    I’m praying for a Lucina update next Monday. It’s been so long.
