✨ this week in figure news ~ 007 ✨

Wow. Wonderful Hobby Life For You came and went last weekend and definitely stopped my heart a few times. Here are some figures from Good Smile Company that caught my attention! (You can check all the figures out here).


OK! Lets start with some non-nendoird news:

First off, here’s the announcement for a scale figure of Akari Kawamoto from March Comes in Like a Lion. Gorgeous isn’t she? Can’t wait to see the figure. 💖


Next up, a pair of matching scale figures for Taki and Mitsuha from Kimi No Na Wa. They will be sold separately but their bases were made to be displayed side-by-side.


Then, in a blast from the past, we have a Figma of Utena from the hit series Revolutionary Girl Utena from the late 90s.


And keeping with characters from hit 90s series, in comes a Figma of Syaoran from Cardcaptor Sakura. 🌸 


Pokemon trainer Mizuki with the three starters from Sun & Moon has also been announced in Figma form:


In addition to Mizuki, Trial Captain Lana will getting her very own Nendoroid:


We also have some new additions to the Re:Zero family of figures with an Emilia 1/7th Scale announcement along with a Nendoroid Beatrice announcement as well.



Lastly, before we hit our Nendoroid centered stride, lets take a look at the prototype for the 1/8th Scale Hatsune Miku: Harvest Moon Ver as well as the Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 5th Anniversary Ver. (which will be available at at Magical Mirai 2017 from 1st to the 3rd of September 2017 and may be available on Good Smile’s online shop sometime in the future.




Wow that was a lot already! And now for the Nendroids! Lets start with the announcements first!

We also got to see Ariel, along with Sebastian and Flounder, from Disney’s The Little Mermaid:

I feel like it wasn’t that long ago that we got the announcement for Fullmetal Alchemist’s Roy Mustang and already we’re seeing his prototype!


In another return of a heroine from 90s anime, and probably one of the most surprising Nendoroids I saw from this event, Lina Inverse from Slayers will be getting her own Nendoroid! 😄


And from our last 90s series (which has just gotten a reboot anime out this season that can be watched on Crunchyroll), Mahoujin Guru Guru’s very own Kukuri will be getting a Nendoroid as well! Isn’t she just adorable? 💖


OK we’re coming to final stretch! First, Kyoko Sakura from Puella Magi Madoka Magica will be getting her own Maiko Ver. Nendoroid:


And to wrap things up, the Guardian from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be joining Link in Nendoroid form as well! (so cool!) 😍
