But it’s January 10th, so why are you still on 2015–*punches*
I mentioned before that I have a backlog of figure pictures from before I decided to stop only publishing pictures with reviews. Before I post my yearly photo summary, I want to share all of those pictures, so here’s some scaled figure goodness for you to enjoy. Oddly enough these are all from my two Savannah trips!
Melty! I took these on the beach at Tybee Island.
Put your hands together for Figma News Fr–Sunday…
This week has goodies of all kinds to enjoy, so let’s get started!
Hana Isuzu Delayed
Delayed to January 2015.
F-finally I can stop lying to everybody on Twitter and write Figma News Fridays! With this week’s news already piling up and forming what looks to be a very good week, it’s time to tackle the old news first. So let’s get started!
Ninja Slayer Release Date Announced
Ninja Slayer will be slaying your wallet November 22nd!
Yet another week of figma news! This week was either the best or week ever because it had a disturbing amount of preorders. And on an entirely different note, I may or may not have memorized every song on the Frozen deluxe soundtrack, and I may or may not be listening to it right now which could affect this post. So let’s get started!
Goro Inogashira: Standard Helping ver. Preorders Begin
Origin: Kodoku no Gourmet
Another installment of Figma News Fridays! This week has release announcements and some previews to look at, so let’s get started!
Are you set to be one of the recipients of the cute and slightly risque Shimakaze? If so, you have some more time to save for this expensive cutie because she has been delayed from May to June.
It’s May already! The weather is quite nice here– even if my horrible habit of sleeping in late and then working all day means I do not get to enjoy it as I’d like.
The beginning of May also marks the descent of a black cloud of silence over our hobby which is known in Japan as…Golden Week! Yes, Golden Week, that group of holidays in which our favorite hobby stores shut down and our precious packages still trapped in their homeland may or may not move for a while. But our favorite companies and stores are always hard at work providing us with things to drain our wallets with, so why not give them a break? There probably will not be much news to share next week, but until then let us enjoy these tasty figure tidbits. I thought there would be just one piece of news this week, but two others popped up which are sure to make some fans quite happy.
Captain America Preorders Begin
Origin: The Avengers
It’s Friday once again~ This week was heavy with announcements, and there’s also a release of an anticipated figma to look forward to. So let’s get started!
This bit of news is from last Saturday, and of course went up right after I posted FNF. This doesn’t happen much, but when it does…arrgh
Free figmas Announced
No, this does not mean we will be getting figmas for free, so you all can sit back down again. What it does mean is that there will be figmas from the anime, Free. For those not familiar with it(I know only the basics myself), Free is about a group of hunky and slightly moe guys who swim. This means muscles and tight swimming pants for all.
I’m slightly surprised by the announcement since properties like Free seem better suited for Kotobukiya, Altair, or Megahouse, but even if it is out of their comfort zone, I know Max Factory will do a great job. Who knows? It may very well be an attempt to draw more female collectors into figmas which would result in even more male figmas which is something I’m always open too.
As for just which character is set to be figmatized, that is still unknown. It could be a few characters or the whole cast, so we’ll just have to wait to find out.
