Much Ado About Taiga

Ehh. Just...ehh.

Another new Toradora! figure, but one I find somewhat less endearing than the adorable swimsuit Taiga that I posted not too long ago. I found that figure cute in and of itself, but I think I would only have any interest in this new one if I liked Taiga herself, which, well, I don't especially. (I don't DISlike her, mind, she just has nothing that really draws me.)

I can't find much specific to the figure that I don't like. She has some separate parts, so you can change out her face, and the smile face looks awkward compared to her glare/pout face. The hair sculpt is a little...odd, but not unattractive.

Right then, the figure is by MegaHouse, due out this August, and runs ¥7140 (about $75 USD). What do you think, Toradora! fans? Would you buy it?

Her expression seems kind of blank, which I'm not fond of.

the whole shape is off, it doesnt really look like her if you arent told that it is her

I'd rather have an Ami figure myself. ^^

I'm a huge Toradora! fan, but I find this figure pretty meh.

Would not buy.

It ok but somehow I find the eye to be off.

I agree, the swimsuit one is a bit more toradorable.

Also, I'm with Schwindelmagier, Ami please!

Dig Deeper into Figures

A popular merchandise type in Japan is the "figure", which can be an action figure or a still figure, generally of an anime or manga character (although there are any number of original designs as well).
