Fig Jargon: May 2013


Wow, we're already in May? This year is speeding by.



Item: Tomoe Mami Real Action Heroes 1/6 figure
Series: "Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica"
Company: Medicom Toy
Price: 20,952yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
This is on the top of my wanted list. I'm passing for now until I know what her shipping will be and to see if she hits the bargain bin. But this is a must for anyone who thought the figma was too small.


Item: Sasaki Kotone 1/7 PVC
Series: "Mahou Shoujo"
Company: Native
Price: 13,333yen
MyFig link.
I hated that this series of figs could only be bought via proxy, because DAMN, they are nice. The extreme exaggeration makes them so unique and they are just great.


Item: IA 1/8 PVC
Series: VOCALOID program
Company: Aquamarine
Price: 9,500yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
A lot of people are holding their breath on this figure. I'm not a huge IA fan, so I passed, but I will be jealous if the final product comes out nicely.


Item: Mikudayo 1/8 PVC
Series: VOCALOID program
Company: Good Smile Company
Price: 7,429yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
With the multiple delays on the Nendo version, I seriously doubt this will come out on time. I'm surprised both have sold out pre-orders. o.o I do find it amusing, but not enough to throw down that much cash.


Item: Dead Master TV Animation ver. figma
Series: "Black★Rock Shooter"
Company: Max Factory
Price: 3,619yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
Dead Master's TV ver. figma to go with the Nendo from last month. I had to stick to my promise not to buy her, but I do love the green.


Item: Bayonetta 1/7 PVC
Series: "Bayonetta"
Company: Phat Company
Price: 13,143yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
I am not a Bayonetta fan (not really into action/gun games) but DAMN this figure looks great. It's bigger, more dynamic, and detailed. More figurines should be like this.


Item: Shiranui Mai Red ver. 1/6 PVC
Series: "The King of Fighters"
Company: Alpha Max
Price: 9,240yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
Well, there's no mistaking the selling point of this one. *puts on sunglasses*


Item: Merurulince Rede Arls 1/8 PVC
Series: "Atelier Meruru ~Arland no Renkinjutsushi 3~"
Company: Phat Company
Price: 7,429yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
I don't know what the hell this is, but it's super colorful. If the final product looks anything like the prototype, this will be awesome.


Item: Konjiki no Yami Swimsuit ver. 1/7 PVC
Series: "To LOVEru Darkness"
Company: Vertex
Price: 8,800yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
This should be really sexy, but it just doesn't seem to do anything for me; not sure why.


Item: Kai Harn 1/8 PVC
Series: "Bastard!!"
Company: Dragon Toy and FREEing
Price: 8,381yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
Okay, THIS is sexy as hell. That glare.... Ohman, I love this.


Item: Hibari Gutto-Kuru PVC
Series: "Senran Kagura"
Company: CM's Corporation
Price: 8,800yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
Such an adorable pose! But too expensive for such a small and simple figure. The sculpt looks pretty bad too on the hands and face.


Item: Kazami Yuuka 1/8 PVC
Series: "Touhou Project"
Company: Ques Q
Price: 8,400yen
MyFig link.
Man, I love Yuuka's expression here. The prototype looks great but Ques Q's quality control is hit-and-miss.


Item: Komeiji Koishi and Satori Love Hearts ver. non-scale PVC
Series: "Touhou Project"
Company: Griffon Enterprises
Price: 10,400yen
MyFig link.
It's nice to see Griffon doing GK recasts, but I do agree with some people on the fact that the eyes on the original GK look 100x better.


Item: Kousaka Tamaki Black Cat ver. 1/7 PVC
Series: "To Heart 2"
Company: Orca Toys
Price: 8,476yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
Tamaki again, but even better since she has nekomimi. But I'm torn on the face; on one hand, I like how it's different, but on the other hand, she looks like she has a bit of derp face going on.


Item: Nicholas D. Wolfwood 1/8 PVC
Series: "Trigun: Badlands Rumble"
Company: Kotobukiya
Price: 9,500yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
I do love "Trigun" but after the huge leg issue with the Vash one, it was easy to pass on Wolfwood. It does look good, but the price is too high for such a risky figurine.


Item: Charlotte Dunois Bunny Style 1/7 PVC
Series: "IS: Infinite Stratos"
Company: Kotobukiya
Price: 7,800yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
Re-release. A bunny girl surrounded by bunnies! This is such a fun looking figurine and I love it!


Item: Yuzuriha Inori 1/3 doll
Series: "Guilty Crown"
Company: Azone
Price: 45,000yen
MyFig link.
Man, "Guilty Crown" was an awful show. The character designs were nice though, but I'm not sure why Azone is doing Inori in this outfit and not her stripper one.


Item: Kitty Pryde Bishoujo Statue 1/7 PVC
Series: "X-Men"
Company: Kotobukiya
Price: 6,800yen
MyFig link.
Purchase at CDJapan.
Why do I keep looking at this line? They all look horrible in the face. Which is sad, since the bodies look great, but butter face. D:


So what figurines are you looking forward to this month?
