Tuesday is Toyday! SoraKake Edition 02/24/09

Some of the week's awesomest toys!

Okay, I admit that I haven't kept up on Sora Kake Girl (aka Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo) since its first episode. But I still like a lot of the design work, and today I spotted two fun figures from the series, so I thought I'd talk about them.


The first one you've seen before, but it wasn't painted yet, or up for sale. Now it is! Well, okay, it's up for preorder; the figure doesn't come out until September 7. Good Smile Company is giving it an MSRP of ¥6800, about $70 USD, although the preorder on AmiAmi runs ¥5140 (about $53), so you might find a better deal if you're looking to buy this one.













Now, as you may recall, that little blobby thing wearing clothes and 'floating' around heroine Akiha is Imoko, Akiha's

robotic companion. Now, this might be the coolest Nendoroid ever: it features Imoko's full-size body, but the head can open up to reveal Imoko's “real” body, which can even be arranged to float out. And of course, true to Nendoroid form, you can change out the full-size body's face from happy to sad. Always a relative steal, this Nendoroid's MSRP is ¥3,334, about $34 USD, and it'll hit stores in June.








Awww! Do want. Both of 'em, really.

Agent_Lost: Yeah, basically due to traveling I've lost track of nearly all the new shows. I'll catch up at some point...maybe! ;)
