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!

Kahotan Station shows off new Nendoroids, figmas

Just a few days ago, Kahotan hosted a broadcast on NicoNico showing off Good Smile’s latest … in the middle of the night here. Thankfully, ani735para on Tumblr grabbed a bunch of screenshots from the broadcast, which have revealed a few things.

Among those are the Nendoroid of Kill La Kill‘s Kiryuuin Satsuki, which looks positively adorable. Also on the broadcast were Nendoroids of Takebe Saori from Girls und Panzer; Hiei and Ooi from KanColle; Mitsumine Mashiro from Mikakunin de Shinkoukei; Suigintou from Rozen Maiden; and Armin Arlelt from Attack on Titan. Armin’s alternate face, in particular, looks quite intense, and I can imagine it’ll get some good use in the photography scene!

Like figmas? Well, the broadcast showed off figma Uno Uzume from Fantasista Doll; figma Nagato from KanColle; and figma Racing Miku 2013: EV MIRAI ver., just in case your Racing Miku collection hasn’t crushed you under its weight yet. Furthermore, there’s ex:ride Spride.06 – TT-Zero 13, perfect to go with the new Racing Miku figma and its Superbike-like stylings. 

You can check out even more screen grabs on ani735para’s Tumblr post. Anything catching your eye?

Free! figmas begin with Haruka Nanase

Max Factory announced that they’d be making figmas based on Free! back in November, but since then we’ve seen and heard nothing of the Iwatobi Swim Club boys. The wait is finally over however as the water loving Haruka Nanase just popped up in prototype form at Anime Japan.

Still unpainted and looking pretty rough, it’s nevertheless encouraging to see that the line is taking shape. We also get confirmation that the Haruka will indeed be portrayed in his swim trunks and nothing else, so Max Factory better hope their ab sculpting is up to scratch. We’ve got no further details at the moment, but since he’s broken cover it’s safe to assume we’ll know more soon.
