    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. They will be doing Madoka (of course) and Iroha Tamaki. Can’t wait to see them all sculpted!

    They have a second figure of Kaori Miyazono from Your Lie In April, and an announcement for the beautiful Ishtar from Fate/Grand Order. Who appears to be Rin. Seriously, what is up with F/GO!?

    Aniplex Takes On Ultimate Madoka Kaname

    Remember when Madoka fever swept the figure world? Sure, we still get some stuff from the show, but it’s nothing like that peak-Madoka hype. Ultimate/Goddess Madoka was particularly prevalent: dolls, figmas and Nendoroids, prize figures, and of course the amazing Good Smile scaled version of her. It’s been quite some time since we saw a figure of Godoka, but Aniplex hasn’t forgotten our lord and savior!

    They’ll be doing a figure of Ultimate Madoka, and while I have the GSC one already I really love the softer, cutesy style and pose they went with here. I think it honestly fits her character more than any other version! Can’t wait to see her painted, and part of me is hoping they do a Devil Homura to go along with her. There is matching art, after all…

    Aniplex Adds Sakura To Their Fate/Stay Night Maiko Line

    Aniplex already has a ton of Fate/Stay Night figures in the pipeline. Maiko Saber and Rin, another fancy Saber, and a few from Fate/Grand Order. But apparently that’s just not enough, even though most of those are still in the sculpting stage. We need more! And shockingly, it’s not another Rin or Saber. It’s Sakura Matou!

    Take A Look At Stronger’s Sculpted Maiko Meiko

    I think we were all (happily) surprised when Stronger announced that the follow-up figures to their Maiko Miku would be Kaito & Meiko.
