Hi everyone! Sorry for not being able to update recently, I’ve been around school for the past couple of days and didn’t really have the opportunity to surf the interwebs. It seems that there have been announcements of several noteworthy pre-order items, so I’ll just mash them up here in one post, for your convenience. As per usual, all of these are available via Hobby Search, and possibly Hobby Link Japan.
Many of you probably might’ve taken a hint that I like Saber a lot (you’ll know it if you’ve seen my wishlist. LOL). This figma at first didn’t really make me very excited, since I was really aiming for the first figma Saber (which has Excalibur and her other sword (forgot name aotm OTL), but because of her alternate faces and the fact that you can MAKE her sit! That just makes me want to get her. Now, I’m having a problem as to how am I going to obtain her when the Saber Lily figures are draining all my moneyz away. ;A; Also, it should be noted that Max Factory has just re-released figma Saber (Armor ver.) recently… obviously making sure that those who missed the original figma Saber and are interested in the casual version would want to buy both — or convince buyers who only want one to buy both. *speaks for self*
Emiya Shirou also gets figmatized and will be released simultaneously with the casual version of Saber. I find it cool that Shirou gets all these cool props — and that’s probably why his price is a tad higher than Saber’s. I haven’t finished the series though, so I find it very, very, odd that he has Archer’s swords, arm and Berserker’s sword. @_@; But with Shirou suddenly being produced — makes me wonder if more FSN figmas would be released in the future. I wants some Ilya please~! <3
Finally! Kagamin’s summer uniform version figma is finally available for pre-orders! I’m a bit disappointed that she doesn’t come with any props like the rest of the LS gang have… but I do think that a lot of people will still buy her, since, I think she’s the most popular LS character! Don’t you think so? If there’s a re-release for this Kagamin in the future, I’ll buy her. Also, it is to be noted that it seems there might be a re-release of figma Kagami winter uniform version too. Hmm.
It’s amazing that these little cuties are selling like hotcakes, they are, once again, available for pre-orders for a re-release on December. I’ve already stated my views on these cuties in my last blog about the Hetalia figures. If you’re aiming to get them, better hurry!
Figure: 1/6 scale Mei
Manufacturer: Daiki Kougyo
Scheduled Release: Nov 2009
Retail Price: 8000 yen
Reserve links: Will not bother linking; please look via Hobby Search ^_^
I just have to say, I never really had a figure manufacturer blacklist — but Daiki Kougyo is making me want to start one. I do not get why they sell figures of crap quality at high prices — I do not even get why they even thrive in the industry at all. ><; Although this is not as flame worthy as their rendition of Saber, I still do not see anything good about this figure. Do you?
That’s about it for now. I’ll be away from the internets in the next couple of days as well ^^; I hope I’ll be able to update more after that though!
