@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

I imagine the conversation about these figures went something like this. “Well, Dave, that Gurren Lagann sure is a weird show. How about… we make… figures… that are weirder! And EVEN TACKIER?” “OMG BEST IDEA EVER? How about… robot Yoko… with… HER BUTT HANGING OUT?” Yup. That about sums it up.
Honestly, folks, I have no clue what is going on here. The first figure, a “Deforevo Color” Yoko, is a normal chibi figure except for the VERY oddly proportioned boots, the fact that she’s a colored resin kit, and the lovely cost of ¥8,400. With a February release. The second is…. a robot Yoko, with huge boobs and her butt hanging out, which will cost you a sweet ¥12,600…. and also comes out in February! Oh, and they might be exclusives like Aegis. I have no words, I’m too busy giggling like a 12 year old boy at a naked robot butt.

Okay, guys. Act surprised. Are you ready for this super shocking totally unexpected announcement? Max Factory is making a figma… of Miku… in her winter outfit! I know right. Truly, an unprecedented and out of left field turn of events. Not like we’ve been waiting ages for this or anything.
Apparently this (inevitable) turn of events took so long because they wanted to use the Miku figma 2.0 body. I know most people are “Miku’d Out” but I think she’s pretty friggin adorable! They chose her original design, and she comes with all sorts of goodies like an embarrassed face, a snowman, and… a microphone for the snowman (?). As you’d expect she’s an exclusive: she’ll be available via raffle (as in, you enter to buy her, not to win her!) at Sapporo Snow Miku Event, but will be available at Winter Wonder Festival as well (including, of course, an online release). Anyone want to take bets on how long it’ll be until we see figmas of 2012, 2013 and 2014 versions? We’ve already got a pretty heavy hint that a Sakura Miku figma is in the works….

Of the many Saber variations, Saber Bride might be the strangest (though at the moment, Sakura Saber is fighting for that spot). She’s a form of Extra, so she’s not even the same character as the original Saber, but the main question is: who is she getting married to, and why is she getting married in weird bondage/fetish gear? With a sword? What kind of wedding is this even? But it’s Saber, and Saber sells no matter what. In fact I’m rather fond of this version since it’s so delightfully weird. It was no surprise when we got the Nendoroid announcement, and since she’s been painted for some time now the full reveal was bound to happen sooner or later.
Good Smile really went all out with Saber Bride: the detail is pretty awesome, on everything from her sword to her crown of flowers to the burnt edges of her veil. Pretty impressive for something so tiny! And she actually comes with some decent faces: not happy, happy, and…. incredibly, adorably derpy, with a music note ahoge to match. Too cute! Orders open on December 5th, and I can’t help but wonder what Saber they’re gonna Nendoroid-ize next… they’re running out of options.

Apparently, Japan exists in a place where it is perpetually spring & summer. That, or people just post warm-weather photos year-round. But I’m gonna throw Occam’s Razor out the window on this one because always-spring seems very, very nice right about now. In New York it’s icy cold but we don’t even have any snow. Thanks, Sugar! You’re the worst snow fairy.
We’ve got a whole new set of Nendoroid Adventures for you today, and it’s actually been quite a while since the last one! Thankfully there’s some variety here: a whole lot of Miku, of course, but also Asuna, Kirito, Sonico, and many other cuties off riding bikes, swimming, and getting into all sorts of mischief. Nendoroid photography has always been something that interested me but I can never work up the energy to put in all that effort: it just takes so much time! So congrats to all the people who can pull off shots as awesome as the ones in this gallery.

In the great tradition of “let’s grab the licenses of as many new shows as we can and make Nendoroids from them,” Good Smile Company is working on Genei o Kakeru Taiyou, a show that involves magical girls and Tarot cards. So pretty much it’s awesome and now I really want to watch it because, well, Tarot cards. We saw Akari Taiyo’s Nendo painted a short while ago, and now we are getting the full preview!
Probably the most dramatic aspect is her alternate hair, or Tenebrae mode. She even gets a sword and evil-looking eyes to go with it! And, of course, a mini Tarot card (the large one is not included): the Sun, which isn’t really hard to guess from her crazy hair. I’m kind of over Nendoroids, but I’m still swayed by how awesome Akari is! They’ve also announced another character, Seira Hoshikawa, and guessing from her hair she’s… the Moon? Death? Temperance? Who knows, it’s Japan!

If your only knowledge of Date A Live came from figures, you’d probably think the show only had two characters–Tooka Yatogami and Yoshino, the later of whom seems inordinately popular next to the show’s wide and varied cast members. Tooka already has a Nendoroid, so of course it’s Yoshino’s time! I’m sure this comes as a shock to no one, but I’m pretty excited because Yoshino has an awesome, unique design.
I mean, she’s got blue pigtails, a green cape, and a friggin bunny pirate hand puppet. How many Nendoroids have bunny pirate hand puppets? That’s right, none. It’s nice to see a Nendo that will probably have no overlap with previous releases… as long as they don’t give her terribly generic faceplates, which seems to be the trend nowadays. But I don’t even care bunny pirate puppet

It’s been a while since we had a Nico Nico broadcast from Good Smile Company & co with anything worth writing up, mainly since they seem to be doing all their new announcements at random events, on Kahotan’s blog, or on Twitter. But there are quite a few goodies today–nothing brand new, but a whole lot of updates! Only one thing on the scaled figure front, so we’ll get that out of the way first: Racing Miku 2013 is painted, and I’m liking her a lot more now! It’s the little crown. So cute!
Then there’s a whole lot of Nendoroid news. Saber Bride is painted and… well, she was before, but here she is again! We get to see some of Winter Clothing Version Isabelle, who comes with awesome effect parts. Then there’s Akari Taiyou and her alternate hair (which might as well be its own figure) from Genei o Kakeru Taiyou, along with the adorable Akagi from Kantai Collection. The table, I need it! Oh, and figma Miho Nishizumi and Yukari Akiyama are here too *yawn*

Griffon tends to churn out scaled figures like there is literally no tomorrow, waiting a mere 2 or 3 months before pre-order and release. But when it comes to any of their other endeavors, it’s pretty much the exact opposite. Remmember the Figguto line? Their version of figmas–which, after pre-orders went up, got delays of a year. Yes, you read that right. I waited a very, very long time for my Sena & Kureha. So I expected pretty much the same from their oddly-named Nanoricchi line, aka Nendoroid & Cu-Poches with a Griffon spin *cough*ugly*cough*. But hey, if they’re gonna give me an Elizabeth, I’m not gonna complain.
In a strange twist of fate, it seems like they’re… actually…. doing something with the line? Look, sculpts! For Asuna and Kirito! What planet are we living on? What year is it?! And… it looks like they don’t totally suck. I mean, of course, both Good Smile Company and Kotobukiya have taken on the license so they have a hell of a lot of competition but hey, maybe they’ll pull off some crazy extras.

Oh, Aegis. While she’s one of the later party members you acquire in Persona 3, she’s kind of become the mascot for the game. Honestly I’m not really sure why she’s the most popular of the girls. Mitsuru is the most beautiful, Yukari has the charming & fashionable factor, Fuuka’s got that dorky cute thing going that Japan seems to love… but nope, it’s the weird robot everyone loves! Okay, so Aegis is awesome, I’m just perplexed (yes, still, after all these years) at her popularity.
But as a rabid P3 fan (I will fight to the death over it being better than 4), any figure is good news! I was happy at the announcement of her Nendoroid, and the painted reveal looked totally perfect! But for some reason the full reveal is just not doing it for me. Sure, she’s got like all her weapons, and 3 faces (the cute stock one, a painfully generic closed-eye face, a slightly angry, slightly cute fighting one–also generic). It just doesn’t capture her personality for me. Yukiko and Teddie were way better in that aspect, but at least the detail on her robot is killer.

According to Lifetime’s deluge of holiday movies, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and you know what that means: a new Snow Miku! Okay, so those two things aren’t really related, but oh my god what is up with the massive amount of holiday stuff getting pushed on us? Wait until after Thanksgiving, please. It’s no surprise that Good Smile is jumping on the “HEY IGNORE FALL LET’S TALK ABOUT WINTER” bandwagon, and we’re getting the full reveal of Snow Miku 2014.
I’ve been smitten with this figure since they selected the artwork, and she came out even cuter than I imagined! There’s so much detailing to her outfit, and oh my god the pet bunny. Dying of cuteness. And the hair ribbons! I really did think Snow Miku was getting tired for a while there, but between this and 2013 I think they’ve managed to keep it lively and interesting. I can’t wait to pre-order her when Winter Wonder Festival 2014 rolls around!
[UPDATE] New pictures from Good Smile’s Kahotan have been added to the gallery.
