Genji Archive

  • I was a bit surprised that Good Smile Company did not have any Overwatch reveals at New York Comic Con. I mean, we got 2 last year, and the US seems to be the primary market for this line. Seems like they were holding out for a big double reveal! Hot on the heels of figma Genji we are getting a Nendoroid of everyone’s favorite human/cyborg duo, Genji and Hanzo. Because who doesn’t love a Hanzo main, amirite? This is certainly a surprise to me: I expected them to do most of the female cast before they started on the boys. Nice to see a more even gender spread! And they both come with such nice extras: special attack effects for both of them! They are priced at ¥4,800 each and come out this June. [via GSC]

  • I think it came as a big surprise to all of us when Good Smile Company & co snagged the Overwatch license. But they’re really a perfect fit: we get both the cutesy Nendoroids and the articulated, true-to-model figmas. Combine that with Blizzard’s statues and there’s (almost) something for everyone. The figma line is moving along a bit slower than the Nendoroid one, but that’s to be expected: with the level of detail and articulation you get on a figma, you just can’t pump them out as quickly! And figma Genji is looking really amazing. Just look at that sexy robot body. Though technically he’s a cyborg, right? What character would you like to see next in the Overwatch figma (or Nendoroid) line? Personally, I want a Nendo Reaper something fierce. Let us know in the comments!
