First 4 Figures Archive

  • Cowboy Bebop is an anime classic, but it gets sadly little figure attention. Probably because, you know, it’s almost 20 years old. We have had a spurt of figure announcements from it recently though, like Kotobukiya’s lovely Spike! And First 4 Figures told us ages ago we’d be getting some statues from them, and finally here they are. Or here the rough 3D sculpts are for Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine, and Jet Black. They don’t look… amazing, but usually First 4’s sculpts are pretty polished so I assume this is just a teaser. They have also announced that Ed will be joining the line too! Hopefully with Ein, right? Because I need a 1/4 scale corgi in my life. [via First 4’s Facebook]

  • When First 4 Figures announced that they’d be making Dark Souls figures, I had one humble wish: for Nito to be added to the line. I mean, he’s obviously best boy so it seemed fairly obvious to me that my creepy skeleton boo would one day get a figure. And today is that day! Or at least it’s the day we find out (because we only have a tiny teaser of the sculpt!). While First 4’s statues are expensive and usually way out of my price range, I might break down for this. I mean, I feel like Nito is a good exception to the rule. “No crazy expensive statues unless they’re of an undead hell lord who haunts your dreams.” Has your favorite Dark Souls character gotten a figure yet, or are you still waiting?

  • Have you ever looked at your collection with a wistful sigh and said, “you know what this is missing? Fond memories of the literal hundreds of times I’ve died in the Souls games.” Yeah, we’ve all been there. But between this announcement and Gecco’s Bloodbourne statue, the wait is over! We can now be reminded of our Dark Souls failures in every room of the house. Wow! First 4 Figures has quite the lineup coming: as you can see from the header, Ornstein is being sculpted as we speak (and looks pretty badass). They will also be bringing us Artorias, Sif, Solaire, and a Knight in Elite Armor. Fingers crossed for Nito next! You know you want that creepy asshole just chilling in your living room.

  • LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA KATAMARI DAMACYYYY Katamari is, hands down, one of my favorite game franchises (and it might be Stephen’s favorite!). There is a startling lack of merchandise from it which is criminal. I want everything Katamari all the time. We do have some Squishables figures from them but it’s not enough! Katamari figures, where are you? Well, we’re finally getting at least one! From First 4 Figures, a UK statue manufacturer, has unveiled a figure of the Prince for us. What a great Christmas present! I mean, what more could you want? A statue of The King of All Cosmos?? *hint hint* [via First 4 Figures’ Facebook]

  • The Nintendo merchandise train is rolling on, but this time it’s not a Nendoroid or S.H.Figuarts–it’s a statue! I mean, we have seen those before, but let’s be honest: statue faces often are… sub-par. However, it’s really hard to mess up a giant pink blob. So of course First 4 Figures’ Kirby is too cute for words! This is pretty much a flawless Kirby figure: at first glance, I thought it was a screencap. Of course, perfection comes at a price. Not only are you paying statue prices, but this little guy is limited! Pre-orders open on Tuesday the 19th and are part of a new line with very low numbers so don’t sleep in if you’d like a little pink chubbo to add to your collection. [via First 4’s Facebook]

  • And so we continue on in the tradition of having our loot posts 2 months late! It’s usually because we unbox figures before we remember to actually take pictures of them, but this time it happened a little differently. We actually just got our main January haul on Wednesday! Due to a mix-up with a March figure that was mysteriously stuck in our Jan order, we didn’t even get the payment request until the end of February. In terms of both money and numbers I think this is our biggest haul ever, dwarfing even the massive August loot! We’ve really been trying to cut back, so I blame the manufacturers for making too many awesome figures.
