@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?

Okay, so it’s no big surprise Alter brought their Labrys figure to MegaHobby. I mean, she was one of the stars of their show at WonFest! It is a little surprising that she isn’t painted but hey, it’s Alter, and sometimes they take forever. It’s (almost) always worth it in the end though! But we’re not totally without updates: Labrys will come with an alternate face featuring her visor, which is pretty awesome.

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.

I’m sure most of us are kind of Aegis’d out, but there’s one format we haven’t seen enough of from the Persona world: Nendoroids! I was definitely surprised when Teddie and Yukiko got Nendos before her, but now that the Persona 3 Movie is coming out soon it’s her time to shine once again.
She was announced at Winter WonFest and then sculpted at Summer WonFest, so I expected to wait a few more months to see her painted… but here she is! And looking fabulous, of course. I just hope this isn’t the only P3 Nendoroid we get, I really want some of the other characters: preferably the MC, Mitsuru & Junpei.

The incoming Persona 3 movie means, of course, more Persona 3 merchandise–which is a good thing, right? Well… it usually is. You know, if the sculpt doesn’t look like a bootleg version of a trading figure!
Happy Kuji, a lottery prize much like Ichiban Kuji, is working on almost the whole cast in one form or another and we’ve seen some cute straps from them… but then this monstrosity walks in. I mean oh my god it’s so bad. I didn’t even know you could make a figure this awful in 2013. I know she’s a prize, but compare this to Taito’s Elizabeth, a widely available prize figure, and it’s just… laughable. I can’t imagine looking at this and thinking “yeah, this is something I want to own!” I’m actually kind of happy they aren’t doing a big Junpei, I don’t want to see that eldritch beast!

At this point, how many figures of Aegis do we have? There’s the newly-announced 1/2.5 version of her, the Nendoroid, schoolgirl Aegis, prize Aegis, figma Aegis (x2), recolor figma Aegis, the weird Phat! Company Aegis, ugly stick Aegis, Alter’s 1/6 Aegis, their much older 1/8 Aegis, maid Aegis, and Kotobukiya’s ancient figure of her.. which happens to be the first one. So of course I rolled my eyes when Daibadi announced their version of her… over a year ago.
Which, by the way, was painted at that time. So I have no idea why it took them a year to get promotional shots out of her but here they are! Thrilling, right? I actually find the proportions super adorable but I am just SO Aegis’d out. Plus she’s ¥8,000 (yes you read that right) and only comes with one face. Okay, I guess the blaster effects are cool but what the hell, $80 for THIS? What is Daibadi smoking?

I love Junpei Iori from Persona 3. A lot. Like… he’s probably my favorite male character from any (Japanese) property ever. I’ve been dying for merchandise of him since I first popped in the game disk and saw his goofy face. He’s my video game soulmate. And we’re finally getting something of him! You think that would be good news, right? WRONG.
The dreaded Happy Kuji is upon us again. Prize figures… damn you to hell! So far we’re getting keychains of Junpei, the MC, Mitsuru Kirijou, Yukari Takeba, Fuuka Yamagishi, Akihiko Sanada and Elizabeth. They’re so cute ;~; Like their Persona 4 lineup we’ll also be getting chibis (of all the playable characters! Except Ken, cause Ken sucks. And Shinji, because… you know), and 2 scaled prizes of the MC and Elizabeth. And for once, no Aegis! It’s a miracle. But I just want Junpei. Sadly Happy Kuji figures seem so hard to get *sob*

Hot on the heels of their announcement of a 1/2.5 scale Aegis, it seems like Griffon has another set of Persona-related announcements up their sleeves! They do like to milk licenses so I guess it’s not really that surprising, but I was a bit startled! Especially since these are in their Nanoricchi VC line, a Nendoroid “inspired” set of chibi action figures. Considering how the Figguto line went, these might take a very long time to hit shelves…
Well anyway, on to the announcement itself! As the header implies, Elizabeth will be getting a Nanoricchi, along with…*drumroll* Aegis! Wow, such surprise. Much excitement, more Aegis. Just what fans want, right? Not like a chibi of Mitsuru, Fuuka, Yukari or Metis would be appreciated…

Who doesn’t love Elizabeth, the Velvet Room’s quirky (and devastatingly powerful) assistant? Well… I guess people who haven’t played Persona 3 or Persona 4 Arena. But if you have and you don’t love Elizabeth you should probably rethink your priorities in life beause she’s totally amazing. And, for a long time, impossible to get a figure of! But thanks to Arena, we’re getting quite a bit of Elizabeth merch! First the prize figure & the D-Arts, then ques Q’s Elizabeth which I’ve loved since the unpainted sculpt. Though in my mind they are the only good things to come out of that game (I mean oh my god a console Persona fighting game but SMTIV is on the 3DS I could rant about that literally all day).
We saw Elizabeth painted at WonFest, and she’s been up for order for a while now-along with a special Christmas version! But she’s a little expensive, so if you’re having trouble pulling the trigger (hehe get it, Persona 3, guns. So clever) we’ve got a lovely gallery of her for you today. Or, you know, if you just want to drool over her before the quickly-approaching December release.

Taito’s Persona 4 Arena line has been going really well so far: Izanagi, Aegis, Yukiko & Chie looked great, and though Kanji wasn’t the best the Naoto he came with was totally awesome. So I had high hopes for the Rise & Teddie duo, since they are by far my favorite characters from Persona 4. To be honest, I could take or leave pretty much anyone else: I’m all about P3.
Let’s start with the postitive: Teddie looks amazing! Then again he’s pretty much a giant orb with hands, so that’s not too hard to pull off. But still, aww! Teddie! Sadly, Rise got the short end of the stick. Her face isn’t as bad as Kanji’s but it’s really not good. At all. And the hair! Good lord! Hopefully Elizabeth looks better, and I’d like to see them move on to the P3 characters that pop up in Arena: Mitsuru, Junpei and Akihiko, yes please.
