With some interest happeing on the Figma side of things from the Revoltech thread (http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=6093), I thought perhaps we should separate them.

Got some pics of upcoming Figma, including the #100. WHich happens to be Hatusne Miku Append.

Right here

Most of the figmas are half way downish. Good to see more Strike witches coming out!

Currently I own

Saber
Asuka (2.0 version, kinda disappointing.)
black rock shooter and
Drossel from disney Japans Fireball series. I saw photos of the new drossel design and im kinda disappointed.

I have Black gold saw and the White rock shooter exclusive on pre order as well

I want a Drossel, I have only found a knock off version, which I took back to the shop. They were fooled too, but I educated them in their ways.

I satiated my need for Drossel with the Skiiing DVD holiday version.

Have you watched the show? Pretty good. I wonder if they plan on doing some more?

Got some coloured pics of the new figma Macaron= whatever for the psp game Queens Gate Spiral Chaos.

I quite liked the 'Fireball' series. Is there an actual movie/series on a Skiing Holiday DVD?

That cosplaying girl looks awesome. :cool: I'll have to check it out.

I only have a few Figmas:
Drossel
Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass)
Black Rock Shooter

I have Rei Ayanami on pre-order currently. Considering White Rock Shooter.

I generally like them more than the Revoltechs. Although I dislike the way both have a habit of not padding out the series they pick up - I think Patlabor was about the only exception.

Hmm, not sure of the skiing episode. I dont think so, I haven't put the DVDs on to be honest... I downloaded some subbed eps first and then decide that Drossel was interesting enough to warrant more. I will have to have a look now.

The cosplaying girl "Maron=Macaron" is iirc apparently a warrior baker of all things.

The revoltech vs Figma subject is one I have wondered.
FIgma generally have more solid figures, and less obvious joints.
Revoltech genaerally have better posability, are looser and fall apart easily, more accessories. Joints are more noticeable.

I do like a lot of the figma I have to say. I prefer figma to revoltech's Fraulein range.


P.S I di a little photo gallery of my Black rock shooter and Dead master.

I have a few Figma's mainly from the ikki Tousen series, and Black Rock Shooter. I prefer Revoltech overall as Figma's tend to be a bit more limited in subject matter. As has been said here they are way better than Revoltechs Fraulein sub line though.

I've been considering the Figma Dorothy the Android that is comming out in the future, but what good is she without Roger Smith to go with her?

Interesting that they have mostly pictures of the damage side of the figure, as opposed to the cool posing possibilties of figmas.

Yeh the price, well it comes with a psp game as well. I think the Cute figma that came with the first QB game ended up being available without the game from somewhere, do you might be able to pick one up. And just not use the damag body. (you have to swap the main body around)

I've been wondering... how is Figma RRP determined? Like... why was Dead Master 3,000円 when Black Gold Saw and Black Rock Shooter were 2800円 (and BRS even came with a DVD)?

(I get that massive hands and a Playstation game bring up the prices of Strength and White Rock Shooter respectively, I just don't get the Dead Master thing.)

So I take it that there are Figma KOs out there..?

prices are most probably set by how much it costs to make or exclusivity. kosmos is 4571Y rrp - she has two huge Gatling guns with stands to support them, as well as a hand gun. She also comes with her hand-sword and dragon-tooth.

I bought a KO Drossel form a hobby shop, After opening it was easy to see it was a knock off. It fel apart easily, the white plastic had little black 'hair' looking blemishes in it. I managed to get my money back, but all I can say is if you see a rrp Drossel, its probably a KO..

That previous link to the blog seems like a good source of info

Basically if you see figma cheap, its a KO.

Too bad you missed out on the 3rd release of Drossell a few months ago Tets. If I had known you wanted one, I would have ordered two.

I think the one we ordered was the Limited Edition White Box version with the Figma. There is another with just the game and they get a small WRS figure (like a tiny gashapon figure).

Just fixed my BGS. I had to pull off her legs and adjust the 'hip' joint. It wasn't damaged or anything, just really really tight when I pulled her outta the box.

I like this figure! Nice sculpting, especially on the face, my only complaint would be that her long limbs and funky shoes make it had for her to stand unaided.

Meeeeeeee! If you are referring to the joint under he bust, mid chest. My first one broke as I was taking off the protective plastic...

Luckily ami ami sent me out a replacement body.

If you are ver, ver, very careful, it can be superglued back together with no loss of movement. I ended up doing that to mine so I have a junker bod now I guess.

Nope to all of those, although I have been tempted by the NERV mugs. I didn't grow up with Megaman so I figure that's an excuse to save a few dollars.

I am a fan of the OVA. :) Because Huke's art came first before there seemed to be a storyline, I'm not sure how much we can gleam from the 'rainbow' eye flavours. (I'm not knocking the idea of visuals before characters - obviously the first thirty Transformers were fully-designed toys before they became characters too, I'm just not sure if the significance is less deep than we'd like.) I think Strength is definitely Yuu, and suspect the girls will have to 'save' her in the sequel. What I particularly like about the OVA is that the true chronology of the story doesn't come together until just before the credits roll, at which point I had an 'ah... that's actually clever' moment.

Yeah, I'm thinking the color association is a little too simple/superficial and that there is scope for something more profound going on. Black Gold Saw's appearance at the start didn't really got explained tho did it? Beyond how BRS got the scar.

Yeah, not so much. There's a girl on the train at one point who looks she might be the 'real world' version of Black★Gold Saw, but no indication why she might want to fight Mato Kuroi. One explanation might be that Black★Gold Saw actually does kill Black★Rock Shooter and that B★RS's 'ghost' has to merge with Mato at the end to be 'alive' again. (B★RS already has the scars when she merges with Mato, so it must occur after the B★GS battle.)

Ha ha ha! Well when I first recieved my BRS, I was taking her out of the box and as I was removing the sheet of plastic that was on the joint under her breast, the peg inside snapped. So I contacted the shop where I got it and they sent me out a spare body. So I swapped all the bits over and took complete BRS home in the box.

her busted body stayed at work for a while and one day for a laugh I thought I would glue it back together. Thinking I would mess it up and she'd be stuck with no movement and probably somewhat broken looking. When I did it though, I managed to fix it perfectly and she retains all movement.

Since I like the figure so much and the body has good articulation and looks cool, I just left the headless version at work and play with it without any hands/feet/head.

Or BGS chopped them off. Your choice ;)

Thanks. :) Now I feel compelled to find it.

There's something about Japanese schoolgirls wielding huge katanas I find strangely alluring, and probably shouldn't... :confused:

It wouldn't be the first Miku release would it? Someone beat me to it... :rolleyes:

Nothing wrong with admiring Japanese schoolgirls wielding huge katanas :D Just like someone here likes dangerous Maids with knives :D:D

Nah not Miku as I already have that (#14 you thinking of is it?), it was Yomi I got from Mandrake, Nanoha from ebay and Caro from AmiAmi.

I've been wondering for a while what happened to the mystery Figma announced at Summer Wonderfest 2009. She looked awesome, and then I've heard nothing about her since. All I know is that her name is Mana. Does anyone here know anything about her?

Very interesting there. Here is another picture:

The other five Figma are from Max Factory's own eroge/dating sim game se.kirara and they have all been released but I dont know the reason why that one was not done.

edit: Doing a little looking around, I found that Mana is actually Mana Mizuki (the one on the far left with brown hair with twin tails) and that mysterious Figma looks like its an alter ego for Mana. It appears that she does the full change to play music in public (its a guess from this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BzKcAlzr9s))

Thanks Valk, that was helpful. I think she must be some kind of unlockable secret version of Mana in the game. A shame they only released her mundane Figma. It seems like maybe she also sang the theme song... or something:

(I still haven't made my mind up as to whether Strike Witches is awesome or asinine.)

Very much asinine.

After watching both seasons, there is very little substance in the anime. I am only interested as they are based on WW2 planes (although they did apprently use real WW2 formations). I think it's a shame as they could make an awesome shootemup game or a really cool action filled anime, but they have'nt quite succeeded on either accounts yet.

Although the end of Season 2 with the Yamato being taken over got pretty close.

I think most anime has its obligatory beach/hot spring episode now.
I like the mecha-musume look though, that Busou shinki seems along the same lines.

That shot of the Mana figure doesn't appear to have anything special on the tag that would allude to a release as far as I can see and I wonder if the saru (monkey) comes with the new Drossel Figma?

The Robocop Figma looks really damn good and with the other one, its from an Anime and Manga called Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. And just because its a Mahou Shoujo show its actually pretty dark especially one character getting her head bitten off and the cute little creature is Kyuubee and he isnt really that cute. Only seen one episode but there was lots of complaints later on in the series regarding the deaths of a lot of the girls in it.

the blurb says (I think as it isn't that clear to me right now) that he has the holster gimmick in his left thight for his Auto-9. plus in the picture with him firing his gun and the one underneath it, there is a black line running down the thigh (near the inner thigh) that I reckon is where the outer bit opens/closes.

the Holiday Drossel comes with the DVD set, and is very plain.

I have never watched the Robocop cartoon, but I personally found it odd that Robocop is being marketed to kids, especially considering how Robocop 1 & 2 were classified as R rated movies and the third was rated M (and somewhat forgettable).

Now that I think back on it, a number of games came out based on Robocop aimed at kids (ie on the NES, C64 etc). I remember some 'parent' group getting all upset that King kong toys were made when the film was rated 'M' they would be having a fit about Robocop surely?:p

Inside was my Reimu and Miku, the 2 most expensive ones of the delivery. Luckily both were ok. I knew they were in damaged boxes, but I dont know how damaged, so I think they came unscathed, despite the postage box situation.

Also recieved my Drossel today in a seperate box. It was opened and only 3000yen. In good condition, but previous owner must have been a smoker as the figure reeks of tobacco. I gave it a wipe and clean tonight to see if it made some difference. It did a little. Might clean it again. Interestingly enough though, I have worked out that they had it displayed with the book on the stand, as only Drossel, the stand and the book smell.

So any I should be keeping an eye out for other people here? :cool:



Both are at Amiami but not the version of Mikoto with the visor.

You can have the two from Code Geass, dont want them at all. You can get the two Summer Wars ones from Mandrake (could get them last week anyway) but again I dont want them but they do look good. Got Winter Drossel and Spiral Chaos and with the Index (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toaru_Majutsu_no_Index)/Railgun (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Toaru_Kagaku_no_Railgun_episodes) Misaka and Kuroko, as you seen only with the PSP game and I already have Misaka and pre-order for Kuroko. With the Misaka one with the visor, that is a limited edition of 20,000 and the character is actually clones of Misaka which are called 'Sisters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Toaru_Majutsu_no_Index_characters#Sisters) ' and where supposed to fight Accelerator to make him a Level 6 (if you watched the anime, you know what I mean). There were 20,000 clones with 1 chibi-Misaka as the 'hub'. I dont know how you would go with getting one of the clones, I think they have been sold out ages ago but you might be lucky with Mandrake again.

Yep, that's the one. Thanks for that. :)

Kinda annoying that I got bitten by the Figma bug so late. Means that I'm paying a lot more for most Figs'.

I saw the Summer Wars Figs' there last week too, gone now. Same with the Archetype Figs', they were both there for about 5000 yen each but gone now (or was that you again?).

Misaka has just been relisted without the game for 5500 yen, easy pass.

I had a look to see when I first bought Figma and it was in July 2008 from Ebay and then in a week long spending spree bought 5 more in October that year buying Suzumiya Haruhi and Lucky Star characters and thats when the bug got me. Most of mine were bought from certain Ebay sellers but now it all from AmiAmi and Mandrake very recently.

I think the grail that I want in a Figma in the WonFes version of Nagato which is the same as the normal release, just a different box. Then maybe the two male characters from Haruhi in which I put off for ages now the damn things are bloody expensive.

Well the Wonderfest version says 'WF2008' on the front with 'Wonder Festival Early Edition' just underneath it.

The three girls from Love Plus+ dating game Rinko, Manaka and Nene (in order of picture) and the one on the far left is Suruga Kanbaru from Bakemonogatari. All those should be available later on in the year.

her arm is/was possessed by rainy devil. which makes it looks like a big hairy monkey arm.

a thought just occured to me - people who collect figma should watch more anime :)
it would feel weird to collect transformers and not have read/watch any of it - otherwise the toy is just a pretty piece of plastic that has no background :/

and wow i just can't keep up with the figma line, they make way too many to fit in any budget i have.

so at the moment im waiting on kos-mos to arrive and then hoping they do another run of the BRS characters.

Waiting for the anime is sometimes a bad thing. BRS was out before the anime I think. Personally I get them more for the aesthetics than than anything else. Plus there is too much anime and I can't be bothered/don't are enough/don't have the time to watch it all.

Case in point, I recived a Shin Mazinger Z Hen because the robot looks cool and he turns into a massive rocket punch. So I thought I would watch the anime to get to know the character more. Problem is the robot is cool, but the anime is boring. So 4 eps in I think I will stop, as I just don't want to watch it. But I still like my Mazinger fist-bot!:D

Likewise with Ryoumou Shimei (?) from Ikki tousen, she fits in well with my violent maids collection, but I don't give a rat's arse about the anime. I think I watched an episode of Xtreme Xecutor, but it didn't compell me to elarn more about the characters.

Plus there are heaps of Transformers that don't feature in comics/cartoons and I have them, as I suspect many others do too.

Phew! That was a bit more than I thought would be:D

So to summarise, background isn't so important, because we all like pretty pieces of plastic regardless. Although it does make a crappy piece of plastic better.

i havent watched mazinger and yeah i guess those really old shows would be quite boring.

i liked the original ikki tousen but havent bothered to watch the other series which were most likely just made to cash in.

i really like bakemonogatari and Senjogahara is pure win of a character.

Hrmmm wasnt it you that made comments about Strike Witches :D:D:D

Anyway I only started collecting the Figma line because of the anime I was watching in 2008 which was Suzumiya Haruhi, Lucky Star and Ikki Tousen.

And with the Figma line coming out, its lucky that I was able to get most of these cheap and get in early before they started to disappear or being expensive.

yeah it was me, i've read about strike witches and seen episode recaps but i have no interest in actually watching the anime or collecting the strike witches figmas.

so far i've only bought 3 figmas - lelouch, kanu and kos-mos.

code geass is one of my favourite animes, just a little pissed suzaku wasnt a normal release and is so damn expensive to acquire. ikki tousen is decent fighting fluff anime and kos-mos is just too awesome with all her weapons.

i really dont like the figma line - they make to many characters too quickly and they get expensive really quickly ;-;

to make matters worse, if i actually collected figma seriously, i'd have to buy all those accessories like bikes, backgrounds and those limited xmas clothes/accessories.

its pure evil.

Heh, I did collect Transformers before the show aired back in '84.

I got LeLouch before seeing Code Geoss, Drossel after seeing Fireball. I just tend to grab whichever characters appeal to me regardless of the show.

Completionism... If I like a line or show enough I might get a couple of 'duds' to round it off. I have a few Fate and Strikers characters but I don't think I want to get all of them... Seems odd/annoying that Shinji always gets left out of Evangelion releases too.

There is a completionist aspect to what I collect I guess - Binaltech, Alternity, Alternators, Masterpiece... Way too many Valkyries too.

Quite shocking how many Figmas I've acquired over the last month or so. :o:eek:

The thumb in particular is fairly flexible and can be moved a little. The first time I managed to get it on the thumb was on the wrong side. The best way I found was to try from the side of the handle/gun rather than from the back, and have the finger first. Tried doing pics, but camera ran outta juice for that one... Not like the pic above, but if we use the gun as a point of reference, so the wrist is pointing away from the camera and the index finger is pointing at you, but the gun is in the same spot.

Bakemonogatari - Suruga Kanbaru.
Suruga, the main character of Suruga Monkey, is Koyomi's underclassman, ace of the school's basketball team and one of Hitagi's acquaintances from back in junior high school. Immediately after she entered senior high school, she became aware of Hitagi's secret and was threatened by her, just like Koyomi was. She's an admitted lesbian, fujoshi, lolicon and masochist. Back in elementary school, she inherited what she thought was a Monkey's Paw but was actually a Rainy Devil from her mother.

Third pic:
Toaru Majutsu no Index - Toma Kamijo.
The series' main protagonist. His right hand contains a power he calls Imagine Breaker ("Illusion/Fantasy Killer"), a power which negates all magic, psychic, or divine powers but also his own good luck ("divine providence" as defined by Index). Because this ability can not be detected through testing, he has been given the lowest psychic rank, Level 0. Due to the nature of his power, the founder of Academy City considers him neither a Psychic nor a Magician but rather a normal person with a unique ability.

i like Kanbaru Suruga's basketball and shoes and the monkey arm might be fun. the other 2 figures seem boring.

And the one figma that started it all. The main one I was chasing, but couldn't find/didn't want to pay the extortionate prices, the one, the only

MAKINA HOSHIMURA

Makina is on my 'to get' list as well, but I don't really have the funds. Both the Summer Wars* figures are up now too, for the second time this week, I got them the first. :)


* Which was quite good, but didn't really impress me the way The Girl Who Leapt Through Time did.

Pretty much what I did. I already have the normal 001.

I haven't got the confirmation/payment email yet tho. Not sure what Mandrake's policy on substituting shipping addresses is either.

Yeah I know but I dont want to pay the exorbitant prices that certain items have. Example is the Misaka Imouto figures that are out and people are buying them on ebay for $160US+. There were three available from $200 to $300US on ebay yesterday and there is no way in hell I would pay for a current/recent issue figurine (unless it was made out of gold or it did things). The most I have paid is $120US for the PSP Queens Blade Cute.
