Figure News: Release Roundup, 12/25-1/1
02 Jan 2011 02:41:51

Whew! First post of the new year, and the first post in the new format! Anyway, this is still a developing process, so if anyone has any suggestions or ideas as to how I could improve my reporting here, don't hesitate to let me know!

As the first article of 2011, this Saturday post will be a roundup of all the figures released this week. When possible, the images will be of consumer-purchased samples, so you can see differences (if any) from the prototypes.

Revoltech Skeleton Warrior
Manufacturer: Kaiyodo
Origin: Jason and the Argonauts
Availability: Standard release
Notes: In scale with Figmas, Figuarts, and most human Revoltechs. Imagine the possibilities!

The arm bone's connected to the... Revoltech bone? I know, that wasn't very humerus.

Figma Yoshika Miyafuji
Manufacturer: Max Factory
Origin: Strike Witches
Availability: Standard release
Notes: None

Striking from the skies to fight the war on pants!

Lucky Star Race Queens Ichiban Kuji set
Manufacturer: Banpresto
Origin: Lucky Star
Availability: Prize (Ichiban Kuji)
Notes: Konata figure pictured. Tsukasa, Kagami, Miyuki, and go-kart figures also available.

Look at 'er go, flauntin' that DFC...

Robot Damashii EVA-03
Manufacturer: Bandai
Origin: Rebuild of Evangelion
Availability: Exclusive (Tamashii Web)
Notes: Second pair of arms are removable, and first pair of arms can be exchanged for non-stretched versions.

"Well, gee willikers! Now I can play video games AND eat popcorn at the same time!"

Figma Metis
Manufacturer: Max Factory
Origin: Persona 3 FES
Availability: Standard release
Notes: Includes Koromaru, who only has one point of articulation (the neck).


S.H. Figuarts Weather Dopant
Manufacturer: Bandai
Origin: Kamen Rider Double
Availability: Exclusive (Tamashii Web)
Notes: Feet are plastic rather than the usual die-cast.

"You're gonna sing in the rain, and you're gonna like it!"

S.A.S. Oyakasu Nijimura
Manufacturer: Medicos Entertainment
Origin: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Part IV
Availability: Standard release
Notes: Includes onomatopoeia part (it IS, after all, a JoJo figure).

Build your army of plastic moonrune speech-bubbles!

Any of these releases strike anyone's fancy? Sound off below!

Dear Lord! That Konata figure is a lot sexier than it should be.

By the way I like the new format It's very professorial looking.

I agree with mu, the new format's pretty sharp. ^^

I for one, cannot wait for skeletons. The year's only just started, and I already have doubts that anything can top my excitement for them. I'm only slightly obsessed with skeletons (... only slightly...).

Metis is on her way to me now, which is cool 'cuz Aigis just got in not too long ago.

Otacute has Konata on her own for about $60USD, if that helps.

EDIT: They also have Kagami for $60, and Tsukasa and Miyuki for $50 each. They're backordered, but Otacute's normally pretty good at getting backordered items (inb4 yakuza jokes).
