Oh Hai Canaan Figures

A couple of impressive Canaan figures.


 
 
I know all you Type-Moon fans (and a few non-fans) are doubtless enjoying or else anticipating Canaan, so you'll be happy to know that Good Smile Company has two figures of the titular character coming out this winter: a 1/8 scale figure and a Nendoroid.
Atypically, I like the 1/8 figure better than the Nendoroid. The sculpt features a phenomenal pose-- if it stands as well as it looks, it's a definite winner. The facial expression is vivid and lively.
The Nendoroid is cute, and even has posable legs, which is unusual for the usually joint-less line, but she just looks so stiff in comparison. Still, her ¥3334 ($35.40 USD) price tag looks pretty nice next to the 1/8-scale figure's ¥7,961 ($84.60 USD) one.

[insert typical CANAAN isn't Type Moon argument]
 
They look pretty nice, though that pose is definitely one that'll bend away over time. the Nendoroid looks a lot like Shiki's though...

I haven't seen Canaan, but, I want that figure.  I want it bad.  She is bad-ass without being overly sexualized.  I love the pants, the boots, the cloak.  This figure makes me happy.  

I wonder if I would like the show.

Drooling over that first one-- exactly what Rathany said, it just looks fantastic.

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).
