    Miku Hatsune has been the ruler of the figure world since her inception 10 years ago. I mean, it’s hard to think of a character who has lasted so long but also has a wide variety of figures and styles (Saber, perhaps… but some of her most popular forms are technically different characters). Of course Good Smile Company is going all-out with both a scaled figure and a Nendoroid.

    I think it came as a big surprise to all of us when Good Smile Company & co snagged the Overwatch license.

    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!

    For me the (figure) highlight of NYCC was seeing Good Smile’s Anniversary Miku in person. If you were wondering, the actual highlight was getting custom Yu-Gi-Oh cards made.

Sure, I love the classic sexy style Shunya brings to a lot of them (and that’s certainly not going away anytime soon), but I also appreciate the softer take some of them have been getting.
