With a new year, comes new figures! Above, you’ll see everything I’ve acquired so far within the past month. This time, there are numerous exclusive figures in this set. Will be getting more Geass related exclusives as the year progresses. Let’s go through everything in detail shall we?
First off, we have, and I’m sure this grabbed your eyes at the very start,
- SP-004 Figma Saber Lily
This exclusive version of the Saber Figma features her sporting a brand new outfit that makes its first appearance in the game she’s bundled with: Fate/Unlimited Codes. Saber Lily has been making headlines everywhere and has been considered as the Ultimate Figma.
I was actually considering not getting this as I’m not that huge a fan of Saber and I have already acquired the game through ‘other’ means already. However, I was caught in the trap of ‘Limited Edition’ and ‘Only 50,000 pieces’ and caved in.
The box design is not unlike the Haruhi SP box in the sense that we have the Figma at the back with the game behind the Figma figure. Great stuff.
Not sure if I’ll be doing a full review of this figure as I tend to leave any Limited Edition or Exclusive figures in the box. From looking at the figure, I can definitely tell that the details are outstanding.
Moving on, we have the next exclusive:
- In Action!! Offshoot Glasgow Figure
Finally! The first of the exclusive Code Geass In Action!! Offshoot Knightmare Frame figures have arrived! This particular figure is again, the first of a number of other IA!!O figures that will arrive this year.
If you are wondering where I got this figure, it is a Tamahii Online Store exclusive and can only be special ordered from their store.
Not planning to remove the paper wrap at the moment… So, here’s some pics of the unwrapped figure taken by someone else:
Gonna sell one soon and will post about it.
Finally, we come to our last exclusive,
- Code Geass Zero’s Mask 1/1 Scale Replica
EDIT: Review up!
It is what it is. A gorgeous replica that is supposedly a 1/1 scale replica. This particular replica is from the Ichibankuji Premium set of Code Geass exclusive prizes. You can see the entire set of prizes here. The prizes include, among other things,
- Zero Mask
- Emperor Charles Coin Bank
- SD Knightmare figures
- File and Sticker Sheets
- Geass Themed Mugs
and of course, a great figure of C.C. that everyone’s pining for. Since I’m not a C.C. fan at all, I only decided to get the Zero Mask.
This replica does have the gimmick where you can fold up the back of the mask like the one in the show, thus adding to its awesomeness. However, whether it can be removed from the stand and worn (around a cat’s head) remains to be seen.
The box is immense! Well, it has to be considering the mask itself is 34 cm in height (including the stand).
Other things I got this month include:
- Hyper Fate Collection’s Archer figure.
As I mentioned before, Archer is now my favourite Servant from the series, mainly due to his awesomeness and Unlimited Blade Works.
Possibly the best figure of Archer as this figure comes with a TON of accessories and the figure itself has a crazy amount of articulation.
Absolutely love Kanshou and Bakuya, Archer’s twin blades.
- Robot Tamashii Guren Kashoshiki
See the latest installment of Actar’s Reviews for my opinions of this figure.
- Figma Shana
Melonpan eating Tsundere Shana from Shakugan no Shana gets the Figma treatment! She is the second (first being Saber Lily) to come with the new and improved Figma Stand that allows for more poseablility! The box design is made of pure win. Some of you will know that there will be a Black Haired Version released as a Magazine exclusive in March. Yeah… ordered 2 of that too…
- 1/8 Scale Index PVC Figure
Last but not least, a PVC girl, Index from the recent To Aru Majutsu no Index, finally graces my collection! As mentioned in the title pic, I’ve been a little low on moe~ness with all the mecha shenanigans going on lately. Really tempted to get the Signum Figure, but I still have Figma Hayate to get, followed by so many other things.
BUT I DIGRESS!
…and Index looks so great next to Mikoto, whom for some reason I haven’t opened yet…
Just had to say that. Something I like about the figures is that the box design is very similar.
Nice touch by Kotobukiya, giving the Magic symbol to Index and the Science symbol to Mikoto.
Seriously, other than the new figures, there isn’t much news to report. Still watching Clannad, Skip Beat! and To Aru. Haven’t started watching any Winter Season shows partly due to:
1. I still have tons of backlog including recent series I’ve put on hold like Jigoku Shoujo Season 3 and Yozakura Quartet.
2. I’m watching completed series like NHK ni Youkoso!, which I’ve just finished and GTO – Great Teacher Onizuka.
Lastly, and the most important reason, I’M FREAKING DYING FROM THE WORKLOAD FROM SCHOOL!!!
