Dial "F" for Figma!

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

she is awesome. Do you have any Revoltech figures? I just wonder how they compare. I might get a few because I find it hard to acquire some of the figures I want.

I do have some, but not as many as with Figma.

I took some pics last night actually:

Old pics and not updated stack. Current WIP below has been on my shelf for like a year now.

I never looked into Figma before, but I have to get that Samus Aran figure they're making. Judging from these pictures it looks like they do great work.

Yup, they do pretty good work for little figures. I preordered that Samus figure and I'm hoping they do a Zero Suit version.

A couple more pics.

Reika is a very good fig. It's one of my faves. I just wished she wasn't so limited and that they released a Kishimoto as well. How's that BRS fig? That's the only fig from the BRS series that I don't have aside from Strength.

I have Drossel, Kanu and Miku Hatsune Append but I'm trying to sell off my Lucky*Star Miyuki. Does anyone know a good place to sell Figmas aside from eBay?

If you have an account at myfigurecollection.net then you can post an ad. I've sold 2 figures there last month and I have one pending now. There's no selling fees too, but you sell at your own risk. I haven't had any problems selling so far though.

I'm pretty sure you can find one later. It's not like it's a limited figma. You might get lucky and get it cheaper than my preorder price. I'm still hoping for a zero suit version. That would make my day.

True enough. :) Also, there is a Zero Suit one, but it's bigger, and a statue. It does look nice though! I thought it would be cool to give the Samus Figma an interchangable head like the Joyride toy did. It doesn't have one to my knowledge, but I do find it cool that it has a missile mode barrel and comes with the Morph Ball. Nice touch!

I LOVE Figmas!

I only have 1 at the moment (Black Rock Shooter, who I picked up at HyperJapan 2012) and she is awesome. My holy grails for now are Strength, TV Animation Black Gold Saw, Squid Girl, and Rei Ayanami. I do hope I can get the rest of the casts of Evangelion, Black Rock Shooter, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and the Vocaloid crew...Heck, I want them ALL!

There are a few I'm surprised haven't been made yet...

Shinji Ikari: Well, him and the rest of the Eva crew really (Misato, Kaworu, an Asuka in her ordinary plugsuit and Gendo especially) but come on...Shinji is not only the main character, he's one of the best, most original anime heroes ever, and from a figure point of view, he's hardly ugly, so why hasn't he been made?

Clearly Gendo is in charge of Max Factory as well as NERV. DAMN YOU GENDO!

Incidentally, are there any articulated figures of Shinji that are in scale with the Figma Eva girls?

Chariot (from Black Rock Shooter). I have seen what appears to be a prototype for Chariot, and some more BRS figures have come out recently, so I think they will make her, but I am shocked they haven't already...She's slaggin' awesome!

I suppose a separately release articulated replica of her colossal spider tank contraption that she can ride in is too much to ask for...

The rest of the cast of Squid Girl (or Shinryaku!! Ika Musume as it was known in Japan). Come on. Who doesn't want a Sanae Figma to chase little Squiddie with, complete with "default friendly smile" face, "starry eyed look of adoration" face, and "nosebleeding, ink splattered, orgasmic pleasure" face, her little camera, and of course the utterly adorable Alex?

Samus in her Varia suit. It was my favourite of her suits (although saying that I am biased as I love Metroid Prime) and I think it would really lend itself well to a Figma.


Also, I don't like the fact that Max Factory only releases their Figmas for such short amounts of time. I want my little Ika-Chan!
5mm posts FTW!

I know what you mean. It looks like they took 5 robots and combined them into one big robot. It doesn't make any sense!

I'm still waiting for them to finally release BRS's trike from the video game. Seriously, both the Cuirassier and Joseph (Fireball Charming Drossel's ride) were announced much later and the BRS trike, and even those have been released months ago!
