Figure-maker and distributor Good Smile Company has announced a ranking of all of the figures that they've been selling this year, including their own line of Nendoroids, Max Factory's Figmas, and various others. The list is currently up on the Mikatan blog, and the #1 figure is...probably not what you'd expect. I'll just go into the top 3 here, and I'll give you the full list after.

#3: Nendoroid Mikku Miku Kagami

This Nendoroid SD figure features Lucky Star's Kagami dressed as the memelicious Vocaloid2 starlet Miku Hatsune. Poor Kagami; she doesn't even like dressing up. Which is a shame, because she looks absolutely adorable here...

#2: Saber Lily

This should come as no surprise; along with Black Rock Shooter (whose December release date is probably the only thing that prevented it from topping this list-- it was still #6!), Saber Lily was probably the most-buzzed figure on the 'net, and unlike so many otaku things that get buzzed but don't necessarily sell, this one clearly did. It IS beautiful, and I'm not even a Fate/Stay Night fan.

#1: Figma Drossel

Confused? Don't be: Drossel von Fugel is the lead character in the Disney/ Toei collaborative CG anime Fireball, and thanks to her unique design, she's one of the few figures whose joints don't look awkward and out of place. This is a kids show, so I wonder if the crossover between figure fans and young fans o the show itself helped the sales?

 

And the rest of the list:

 Black*Rock Shooter
 Black*Rock Shooter
4. Figma Kagami Hiiragi Cosplay Ver. (Lucky Star)
5. Figma Hayate Yagami Armored Knight Ver. ( Nanoha)
6. Black*Rock Shooter Miku ( Vocaloid2)
7. Nendoroid Mio Akiyama ( K-On!)
 Figma Aigis
 Figma Aigis
8. Figma Aigis
9. World Is Mine Miku (Vocaloid2)
10. Nendoroid Drossel (Fireball)
11. Nendoroid Yui Hirasawa (K-On!)
12. Figma Signum Knight Clothes Ver. (Nanoha)
13. Haruhi Suzumiya Gekisou Ver. ( The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
14. Nendoroid Saber Lily (Fate/Stay Night)
15. Figma Vita Knight Clothes Ver. (Nanoha)
16. Nendoroid KAITO (Vocaloid2)
17. Nendoroid Reimu Hakurei (Touhou)
18. 1/7 Miku Hatsune (Vocaloid2)
19. Figma Haruhi Suzumiya Summer Clothing Ver. (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
20. Figma Sakurahime JPWA Tag Tournament Ver. (Original)

Bear in mind, of course, that this is just the best sales for GSC and the figures it distributes-- so there are plenty of other figures that sold well, too, I just can't compare them myself. What do you guys think? Anything here you'd pick up?

I picked up Saber Avalon ofc and I would have liked to get BRS.

@Void_Wizard: You and me both on BRS. Drool. Even though she's a little skinny for my tastes, the style is absolutely hands-down undebatable.

Good to see some Persona 3 rocking the chart. Yea, "Black Rock Shooter" is amazing and there even a 2nd version "Black Rock Shooter Black Blade ver." coming in April.
