Figure News: Release Roundup, 1/23-1/30
30 Jan 2011 01:42:28

Well, Good Smile Company hasn't exactly been winning friends lately. Not only is there the controversy regarding the questionable future of their international sales, but they've developed a knack for biting off a bit more than they can chew - nearly every single one of their products for this month has either been delayed (Nendoroid Date Masamune, Figmas Rei, Incisor, and Torque, to name a few) or pushed to the 31st of this month. Thankfully, other manufacturers are picking up the slack this week, with a number of new releases from some of the smaller players (Konami, Medicos).

MMS Type Centaur - Proxima
Manufacturer: Konami
Origin: Busou Shinki
Availability: Standard
Notes: Can be rebuilt into a number of combinations. Think Bionicle with lolis.


"Hi-ho, Silver, awaaaaaay!"

MMS Type Gothic-Lolita - Maryceles
Manufacturer: Konami
Origin: Busou Shinki
Availability: Standard
Notes: See above.


"I have four extra arms! You jelly, EVA-03?"

Figma Asuka Shikinami Langley (Test Plugsuit ver.)
Manufacturer: Max Factory
Origin: Evangelion 2.0: You can (not) Advance
Availability: Standard
Notes: Entry plug seat is identical to the one included with Mari. It's safe to say that Rei's will be, too.


"What was that about MP Evas!?"

S.A.S. Koichi Hirose and Echoes ACT1
Manufacturer: Medicos Entertainment
Origin: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Part IV
Availability: Standard
Notes: Includes multiple stand parts, for use with Koichi, Echoes, and a number of included effect parts.


"Go, Lizard-kun. Go out and zap to the extreme."

S.H. Figuarts Kazuma

"ENOUGH WITH THE X-MEN COMPARISONS ALREADYYYYYYY"

Protoman/Blues Model Kit
Manufacturer: Kotobukiya
Origin: Mega Man

Iiiiit's Bruce! Say hello, Bruce!

So, does anyone see anything that strikes their fancy this week, or are they going to wait for the future? Sound off below!

Proxima and Asuka are en-route should be here Tuesday or Wednesday, along with Figma Luka that I finally caved in and bought (despite canceling a couple of times).

Asuka's breast-part looks kind of weird here...
Just trying to convince myself I did a right thing when decided to pass on EVA figmas :)

Mari has the same issue, and I think it's safe to say that Rei will, too. It's because they used the Eva Figmas to test out a new chest joint - one that allows both side-to-side movement as well as two up-and-down hinges. But as a side effect, in many poses, it makes their breasts appear to float in midair...

Proxima and Maryceles are on their way, waiting for payment request on Asuka (I'm sure they're holding it to ship with HMO). The chest problem isn't too awful on my copy of Mari, I'm hoping I have the same luck with Asuka. Either way, I have a more forward-leaning posed planned for her display thankfully. @_@ Looks like it would hurt to have them like that, man.

I think the thing about Mari is that she had those vaguely claw-like white pads over her breasts, which tapered down somewhat and helped hid the gap. Asuka doesn't have those, so she appears to have, as Anonymous put it, a floating bosom.
