Figma News Fridays: 1/8/16 Massive Catch up

*crawls out of hole* I’m back!
I was doing pretty good at posting more often…until I went MIA for a few weeks *sigh*
But I had a great time in Savannah again! I’ve never been out of town for Christmas, so that was tons of fun! Then I worked my rear off for New Years to prepare for the next semester and all of the expensive figures I preordered for 2016(oh why?!). I also made lots of cosplay progress on props specifically, and by that I mean that I now have two Levin Swords. I usually share cosplay prop progress on FNF even though nobody asks for it, so why not start with that?

Figma News Fridays! It’s finals week, and I need something to help me procrastinate, so let’s get started!

Monday

Tomoyo Daidouji Preorders Begin

From the masterpiece shoujo manga series ‘Cardcaptor Sakura’ comes a figma of Sakura-chan’s best friend, Tomoyo Daidouji! 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. She comes with her gentle standard expression, a warm smiling expression as well as an expression for filming! Her school bag is included to pose her on the way to school, and an alternate front head part with a hat is also included. Tomoyo-chan’s beloved video camera is also included, along with an arm part to recreate her famous ‘hand on cheek’ pose! The joined hand parts can be used by Tomoyo-chan alone or together with figma Sakura Kinomoto: School Uniform ver. (sold separately) to display them holding hands!

Tomoyo retails for 5370 yen and is scheduled for a June 2016 release. Preorders of figma Tomoyo Daidouji from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Cheerful Smiling Expression as a bonus! tomoyo preorder bonus

Welcome to an on time Figma News Fridays! We have release dates and a few preorders, so let’s get started!

Monday

In spite of how exciting this news was, I forgot it in my catch-up post, so let’s start this week out right!

Meiko Announced
meiko announcement
Origin: Vocaloid
This announcement has taken years to get to us. Miku, then Len and Rin, and eventually Luka were first to receive the figma treatment. Then, after much fan effort, Kaito came. Meanwhile, Gakupo, Gumi, and Meiko received nendoroids with no signs of the same on the figma front. It’s not that I really wanted Meiko anyway(not being tsundere here), but I had honestly assumed that we’d never get a figma of her. Then her announcement came out of the blue! I hope that Meiko’s accessories are somewhat exciting since the nendoroids tend to get better accessories.

Figma News Fridays 11/6/15 & 11/13/15

Welcome to two weeks of belated figma news! I have not fallen off the face of the earth. Rather, my free time has shifted more towards feverishly making cosplays. The next big convention is not until May(lol), but I’d like to be ahead for once–especially since I’m planning to be there for the whole weekend and am in a few groups. Since this has put off FNF so much, I’d say you all deserve some progress pictures!

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!

 

Saturday

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.

Welcome to a late edition of Figma News Fridays!
I apologize for the lack of activity on the blog lately. For the last week or so, I have been slave to this:
Untitled

(Not even trying to look excited)

Long hours, lying on the floor in despair, and nights with little sleep have culminated to bring this accursed coat together. And the reason? No, I am not trying to achieve the highest form of video game immersion. I am going to Anime Weekend Atlanta! This Friday and Saturday will be my first time at the convention in a long time, and it’s all because I had so much fun at Momo con. I will be Ash Ketchum on Friday and Morgan(pajamas not included) on Saturday. I will also bring Tamaki and a figma long. If anybody else will be there, please let me know!

Now back to FNF. This week had the usual release dates and delays along with some unexpected announcements, so let’s get started!

Figma News Fridays 9/11/15

Welcome to Figma News Fridays! This Friday was a pretty normal day for me. It was filled with sleeping, walking, standing, oh and MY BIRTHDAY! That’s right, this Friday Yami Usagi became *sob* 20 years old! I started collecting figmas when I was just 14. Where has the time gone? This has been a very happy year for me personally though, so I hope that continues for many years to come.

This week packed many release date announcements and a long awaited preorder, so let’s get started!
