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 12/7/15

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

Figma News Fridays: 10/29/15

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.

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!

Monday

Alice Kuji Release Date Announced

Figma News Fridays: Special Summer Wonderfestival 2015 Edition

*Out of breath after reading title*

It’s that time of the year again: Wonderfestival! Where paychecks are spent before we even have them!

Wonderfestival unites the figure industry for the sole purpose of trapping us in this hobby for at least another six months. Figures of all kinds are shown, but what is important to us today is figmas. And with companies like FREEING, Phat, and now Orange Rouge branching out to make figmas along with Max Factory, we have a lot to look at.

As is the usual routine with Figma News Fridays during Wonderfestvial, we will cover everything at the event beginning with announcements, then unpainted prototypes, and finally painted prototypes. I will include whatever opinion I have along with series information, what I know about release dates and pricing, and whatever other helpful information I can find. There’s a lot to look at, so let’s get started!

Announcements

Miyo Asato: Tactical System Uniform Girl Announced
asato miyo
Manufacturer: Tomytec
Origin: Little Armory

Google searches of Miyo Asato returned the entry on MFC and tombstones, so I don’t think there is much about her. Little Armory is what the Tomytec 1/12 weapons were released under, so I can only assume that Miyo is a character created for their line. She may also be Yuki Nagato’s sister.
