Figma Christmas Accessories GET!

Kawaii SUGIRU!!!

Kawaii SUGIRU!!!

WHEE! Christmas comes early for Actar as I refer to myself in Third Person Perspective. I was delighted when I looked outside my house today to discover a package…


This package contained: My Figma order from Hobby Search!

All your presents are belong to us.

All your presents are belong to us.

For those of you who don’t know, Good Smile Company (GSC) has a special promotion from the 10th to the 25th of Japan where if you buy a Figma from selected stores in Japan, you’ll receive a set of Christmas Accessories!

We in the rest of the world were in despair! ZETSUBO! Then, Hobby Search, one of my 2 favourite online stores, announced that they would be having a special campaign where online buyers of Figma items will be treated to the same promotion as those in Japan!

But then…

Dum, dum, DAM!!!!

Dum, dum, DAM!!!!

Wow! That campaign sure was short… Luckily, being the kaisu (afraid to lose) Otaku I am, I ordered mine on the tenth.

Once again, I was lucky to have waited before buying Yuki and Ryoko. This was indeed a perfect opportunity to get them.  I am so happy that Hobby Search included the sticker ‘Merry Christmas with Figma’ on the box. Real attention to detail. GOoJOB!

So, story aside, let’s get down to the review. The accessories come in a neat bag in a neat bag. No, that’s not a typo.

What is included is a Figma Santa Cap, a Figma Santa Cloak and a Figma Santa Bag. The Hat and Cloak are made of that special soft PVC so as not to restrict the joints. You got to love that stuff! The Figma Santa Bag is made of a velvety material and is extremely smooth and yet furry to the touch. Amazing.

The Hats come in two sizes, small (mainly for male figures and Konata) as seen above and large:

One of my favorite pics of the set! SO AWESOME! (If I do say so myself...)

Since the selection was random, I was lucky enough to get one of each. YAY! (again).

Since the figma hats are figure-sized, they can fit on just about anything and up it’s Christmas Spirit by 10 points.

I also suppose that they based the design on the above pics.

Here’s a preview of my tree!

Perfect tree decoration?

CONCLUSIONS!!!

Come stare into the magic ball! Thou shall be mystified!

Come stare into the magic ball! One can only wonder what's behind...

To round things up, this is a great accessory. Considering you get this FREE with every purchase, it is indeed worth it. Because it is FREE. FREE stuff is FREE. Seriously, in time of economic crisis and in daily competitive society, it is not often that compinies give stuff out. Great move by GSC to bring out the Christmas spirit in Otakus!

So, let me leave you with the official Actar’s Reviews Logo for Chirstmas!

So glad I could recreate the pose!

And I know I’ll be talking about Christmas next week, but I just want to say it:

Merry Christmas!

    Merry belated Christmas! Wow you’ve managed to get the Santa set! My figma Miku’s preordered so it didn’t come with one -_- Did see some being sold here in Hong Kong, but I need to see whether they’re worth the price (23HKD cheapest from what I’ve seen so far).
