It’s fall, time to take your figmas to school

There are an endless number of figma schoolgirls out there (I counted, they’re infinite), but they’ve always lacked a school setting to hang out in. Max Factory is rectifying that now with the figmaPLUS line of display sets.

Two will be available in December: a classroom set and a street set. They’ll have a scenic backdrop, some models for various props (unassembled), and some papercraft items to top it all off.

Pre-orders are up now for ¥2,900 each. If you get them, I strongly recommend a pair of model clippers!

Killzone: Shadow Fall (PlayStation 4)

Strive To Uncover The Whole Story

Killzone: Shadow Fall is the latest installment in the hugely successful Killzone franchise, developed exclusively for PlayStation 4, by Guerrilla Games. Thirty years after the events of Killzone 3, the world is a very different place, with two rival factions, the Helghast and the Vektans, living side by side divided by a vast wall. In the midst of it all stands a Shadow Marshal, an elite soldier, the best of the best. As Shadow Marshal Lucas Kellan, you’re sworn to protect your home and the values you believe in. Maintaining the fragile peace is difficult when there is no trust between either side. A series of escalating conflicts puts you on the path of a Helghast intelligence operative named Echo, who fights for the same reasons but on the opposite side. Strive to uncover the whole story as the intense, immersive combat of the Killzone series is reborn on PS4.

Fall for these Kotobukiya Yaya pre-orders

Jon professed his admiration for her a little while back, and now it’s my turn to say how much I like Kotobukiya’s take on Unbreakable Machine Doll‘s Yaya. It’s a super neat pose that makes her stand out a lot from the crowd. Plus, her cute outfit flapping around her and some good hair sculpting brings a lot of life to the figure. Then there’s that terrific base, which continues a good run for Kotobukiya of interesting, unique bases and dioramas. We really should be beyond bare plastic discs by now.

If you’re in agreement with us, you’ll be happy to know Yaya is now up for order. She’s a little pricier than standard at ¥9,800, but I’ll accept that given the base and the level of quality that looks to be on display. Hit up the links below to make sure she arrives at your door in June.
