    Aniplex Announces A Slew Of New Figures

    Ah, Aniplex. Maker of prices that make my heart sing and my wallet cry. I will admit that I only own a scant few of their pieces because 1) insane pricetags and 2) exclusives. It’s a bad combo! But once again, I am impressed with their new lineup and want them all.

    We have 4 announcements today! First off, we are getting more Fate/Apocrypha figures: Mordred and Astolfo. Their amazing Ishtar is also painted! They will also be re-visiting Madoka… or Magical Record Mahou Shoujo Madoka ☆ Magica Gaiden, which is not at all a long and annoying name or anything.

    Check Out The Figures At The 49th Prize Fair

    Prize figures have always been appealing: you get a cheap version of a popular character, often in an outfit that we’d never see in scales.
