    Winter WonFest 2018: Persona 5 figmas & Nendoroids

    You may be thinking, “Leah, 4 announcements isn’t really worth its own post!” To which I say, “shhh, let me have this moment.” Because do you know what we are getting? Did the header give it away? We’re getting a YUSUKE FIGMA. My beautiful husband can now be in my life to give me art advice. Oh, and figma Anne too! Both in their Phantom Thieves garb, of course.

    We also have two Nendoroid announcements: Futaba (in casual clothing) and the MC (in his Joker garb). I wonder why they’re in non-matching outfits? Maybe we will get two full lines of the whole cast?? Hey, a girl can dream.

    Winter WonFest 2018: MegaHouse’s Persona 5 Arsene

    With every entry into the Persona series we get progressively more figures. I predict that by the time 6 comes out (10 years from now, let’s be realistic) the figure market will be nothing but Persona. And I’m kind of okay with that. Today we have an unexpected announcement: MegaHouse is taking on the persona Arsene!

    Given their love for monsters (Digimon, Pokemon, etc) perhaps this isn’t that much of a shock, but the level of detail surely is. Those wings! And he will be part of the DX series, which means… very expensive and (knowing them and their hatred of letting me buy things I want) an exclusive. Doesn’t matter, gonna get Arsene.
