Why Isn't It Toyday?

Too...many...awesome...figures!

Revy
Revy
Yeah, okay, I could have saved these for Tuesday, but they're just too awesome. First up is a new PVC Revy, the first one I've seen explicitly from her second season, Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage. It's Revy in her outfit that she wore around Japan while dealing with Rock and a conflict between the Hotel Moscow and the Yakuza. You will probably never see her in a skirt otherwise (goofy omake involving her in a school uniform nonwithstanding).


Akiha
Akiha
Second is a little on the premature side, but Akiba Hobby has images of an unpainted Good Smile Company sculpt of a figure of Akiha from Sunrise's newest show, Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo. It looks really nice; it captures the style of the show perfectly. A lot of times figures' faces don't look a ton like the animation they come from, especially noses, but this? Spot on. And it even comes with a little flying Imo-chan. Aww! (I'm not sure how huge a fan of the show itself I'll be, but I still can't wait for some kind of Imo-chan figure that features her humanoid robot self as well as her little blob self.)


Sumika
Sumika
And finally, also from Akiba Hobby, we have another Good Smile figure of Sumika from Muv-Luv Alternative, one of a series of adventure games. I don't know or care much about the game, but I really like her design, oversized breasts aside. (Seriously, I'm all for curves, but sometimes they just look a little...extraneous.) Maybe it's just my fondness for black (or in this case, charcoal grey) and pink?


Well, in any case, they're all absolutely lovely and I wants them, my precioussss...err, ahem. They'd make a nice addition to my growing collection.

OkazukiIchigo: Speaking as someone who just paid OFF a credit card debt, you're not all that bad off without one.

Agent_Lost: I have my sources. *cackles*

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).
