    Cardcaptor Sakura Is Finally Getting a figma

    With Cardcaptor merchandise on the rise (prize figures, Ichiban Kuji, and of course the Nendoroid) it was really only a matter of time before we got this news. But man, am I relieved to see it! Cardcaptor Sakura was pretty much my whole childhood… well, that and Sailor Moon. So the flood of merchandise for both brings a tear to my cold dead heart.

    But you know what this means, right? Nendoroid + figma of a character usually means a scale from GSC or Max Factory. I have my suspicions about what we will be seeing tomorrow at WonFest…
