One of Gift’s Wonder Festival announcements was that they’d be picking up Toda Satoshi’s totally lovely Homura. They’ve worked on many of Satoshi’s sculpts before, but always figures of the Fate/Stay Night gang, so I was surprised to see them pick up this figure! Then again, given Madoka Magica‘s popularity it’s unsurprising that they went for this kit.
Some small changes have been made from the original: her face is just a bit different and her color palette has been shifted more towards purple. While Satoshi’s sculpts seem to be controversial, I absolutely adore his style and think this is miles ahead of the Good Smile sculpt… but not quite as nice as Grizzry Panda’s Homura. Ah, if only a company would pick that one up. Gift’s Homura should be going up for order in September (aka very soon) and will be released in spring. I wonder if they will make Satoshi’s Mami as well?
