Welcome to Figma News Fridays!
This week had plenty of release announcements, a preorder, and even a winter-rific reveal, so let’s get started!
Egashira 2.50 Rerelease Date Announced
This figure is being released for the third time.
Mio Honda Release Date Announced
Umi Sonoda Release Date Announced
Nozomi Toujou Preorders Begin
From the anime series ‘LoveLive!’ comes a figma of the brains of the μ’s group – Nozomi Tojo! 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 smile, a cheerful singing expression as well as a mischievous expression. Her school bag and a video camera are included as optional parts. Tarot card parts from the series are also included to recreate her famous fortune telling scenes. 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 Nozomi retails for 5370 yen and is scheduled for August. Preorders of figma Nozomi Tojo from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include an Winking Expression as a bonus!
When figmas of every Love Live girl were announced Last Wonderfestival, I didn’t imagine that by the next Wonfes, we’d have most–is not all of them up for order. The figmas are admittedly very “standard” in that they’re more about giving us a figure of each girl than making something incredibly unique, but it’s better than nothing! Nozomi has a few character specific accessories though and a bonus expression which is actually good *falls slowly to floor*. As usual, I will be passing and being forever grateful that I am safe from Love Live.
Snow Miku: Snow Owl ver Fully Revealed
Snow Miku has reached its 7th anniversary this year, and once again this year’s design from piapro was decided by fans during a NicoNico Live Broadcast! The theme for this year was ‘Winter Sports’, and the winning design was this cute and energetic design illustrated by Kotatsu Otogi, which has now been transformed into a figma! Rabbit Yukine is also of course included with her!
She comes with three expressions including an energetic smiling face, a playful expression as well as a cute winking expression!
Skis with ski pokes made in the image of musical notes, as well as a snowboard and skis for Rabbit Yukine are all included.
Her neck warmer and scarf can both be attached and removed as you see fit, to match various different situations.
An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
We saw preview pictures, but prepare yourself to bask in the full glory of Snow Miku 2016! *crows applauds*
I didn’t see the owl connection until the official name was announced, but her hat does indeed resemble and owl head! Also, I like that the rabbit, Yukine, is now part of the tradition. The texture on his hat makes me happy.
That tongue face! Yes! It’s so cute and unique!
The goggles are removable! And look at that cute toothy smile! I’m loving these faces~
Living up to the winter sports theme with a pair of skis! Yukine has them too aaaaah!I can’t wait to get her in the summer…
And a snowboard which even has a little owl! From this angle, her hair sculpt is perfection!
Snow Miku 2016 retails for 5556 yen and is scheduled for release first at the Sapporo Snow Festival, then Wonderfestival, and then preorders will open on GSC’s shop for a release somewhere around July. I’ll definitely be getting her!
That wraps up this FNF! Is there an icy Miku is your future?
