✨ this week in figure news ~ 004 ✨

It’s time for another installment of figure news! Not much has caught my attention so a short one this week. 😊


For all you Persona 5 fans, Good Smile Company will be releasing a Morgana Nendoroid!

Ugh, I so want to play! Maybe it’s time to finally get a PS4? Morgana’s up for preorder from July 11th through August 10th.


Up next! After recently showing her off last week, Good Smile has opened preorders for Overwatch’s Mercy!

Mercy will be available from Good Smile Company’s online shop from July 12th through August 24th.

Also check out the micro site they created for all their Overwatch figures!


To celebrate Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, a new movie Pokémon the Movie 20: I Choose You!, retelling the story of Ash and Pikachu, is being released in Japan later this week. (And yes the 8-year-old in me is upset and screaming ‘blasphemy!’ and ‘how dare you?!’ at the fact that Brock and Misty have been replaced).

To join the celebration, Good Smile had announced an Ash Nendoroid, complete with his trusty companion Pikachu at Winter WonFes and the wait is over!

Ash and Pikachu are ready for preorder from Good Smile from July 13th til August 10th.

In addition to Ash and Pikachu, there’ll also be a Pikachu face part case!

Now everyone can dress up like a giant Pikachu!


While we’re still on this Pokémon kick, let’s take some time to admire this Kotobukiya 1/8 scale figure of the female protagonist from Black/White 2 and Snivy.

The Rosa with Snify figure will release in December 2017.


Finally to wrap this week up, Kahotan’s blog gave us a sneak peek at Kimi No Na Wa’s Taki and Mitsuha Nendoroids!

Taki & Mitsuha Nendoroids - words on face

According to her blog, Taki and Mitsuha will be showing up for preorders on Good Smile’s online shop soon, probably tying in with the Blu-ray/DVD release of the film on July 26th in Japan. This backdrop will come as a bonus to those ordering the duo from the online store:
