Welcome to Figma News Fridays! I hope your Halloween was sufficiently spoopy. I went to a ten hour Halloween party, so mine was pretty great.
This week had release date announcements, a freshly painted figure, and a preorder, so let’s get started!
Limited Gorou Inogashira Announced
The world cried out for more Gorou, and those cries were answered.
This Gorou is apparently part of a limited raffle with the ramen being a special accessory. That is all I know at the moment, but he’ll probably be extremely hard to get. It’s a shame there aren’t any other Gorou figmas…OH WAIT.
Yami Yuugi Painted
Finally painted and looking a-ma-zing~
Yami is another character from many people’s childhood being given a quality figure as of late. The sculpt down to his stylistic weird proportions looks spot on as do the colors–especially in his hair. Yami’s release is currently listed as April 2016 which means we should expect orders soon.
I like seeing Yami, but Yu-gi-oh was not my jam as a child, so I will most likely be passing. Still, I wonder what we can expect for the rest of his accessories!
The Table Museum’ is a series of figma figures based on famous works of art that almost anyone would recognize! The fourth artwork to join the series is the masterpiece sculpture of David by Michelangelo, now known around the world as one of the best examples of Renaissance art. The beautiful yet powerful appearance of his sculpt still captures the hearts of people to this day.
Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out the classic David pose and various other action poses.
A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
The proportions of his head have been carefully preserved, and his eyes can be moved to change the direction he is looking.
A special base and arm parts are included for the classic pose, but various other hand parts are also included.
A sling part as well as hands to use it are also included, allowing you to pose him ready to take a shot
An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
David retails for 4444 yen and is scheduled for a May 2016 release.
It was only a matter of time before we got a Table Museum figure of Michelangelo’s David since it is one of the most recognizable statues. I’ll be passing, but customizers could have a lot of fun with this one.
That wraps up this week! According to commercials, Christmas is soon, so we have that to look forward to.
