I guess most of you have already heard about 'figutto'. And if not... well :)
Griffon Enterprises is launching a new action figure line called 'figutto' (フィぎゅっと).
And today GE updated its 'figutto' site revealing the name of the first figurine in the series. According to the official info it's going to be Reimu Hakurei from Touhou Project. She will be released in March 2010 and the price is 3990 Yen.
What do you think about 'figutto'?
Compared to figma and Revoltechs, 4000 Yen is rather pricey. However the quality and the detail level seems better as well - and because of this I think I would prefer GE new line to the ones named above. Although I'm not into action figures really.
'Figutto' also reminds me of BJD dolls. Draw attention - they focus not only on how the figurine looks form the outside (I mean clothes and extra subjects), but on the figurines original body. That is odd, cause usually action figures are associated with something simple.
It was also announced earlier that Max Factory is going to release its figma Reimu Hakurei. Considering this fact, doesn't it look like 'figutto' is declaring a war to figma?
