Here’s how you make outstanding action figures: Take a pair of already beloved Amiibo statues, give them a ridiculous amount of articulation and load them up with accessories. That’s what Good Smile Company did to create the upcoming Squid Girl and Squid Girl DX Figma figures.
Good Smile are back with another Overwatch Figma, this time of D.Va. There’s no mech, but it’s a Figma, you shouldn’t have been expecting one anyways.
Ignoring my repeated demands for a Figma Mercy, Good Smile have instead decided that the next kickass Overwatch figure is going to be Reaper.
Out at the end of the year, and running around USD$65, this is Good Smile’s Widowmaker Figma from Overwatch.
Good Smile is releasing a Figma next year based on Sun & Moon trainer Selene.
The excellent Tracer Figma (some of the world’s finest action figures) is now being joined by a Genji.
Good Smile Company, creators of the excellent Figma series, showed this off over the weekend.
Figma will be releasing a couple of Kirby Nendoroid figures later this year, one a re-release of their original Kirby, the other a brand new Ice Kirby. They’ve got umbrellas, Link’s hat and one is either sucking in or throwing up a star, and it looks kinda gross.
For a game where half the fun is just loving its cast, Blizzard has been slow getting quality Overwatch figures onto the market. Pop Vinyls should be shot into the sun, and the Nendoroids were a start, but Good Smile has now stepped up with a Figma based on Tracer.
This is not the first Figma representation of Metroid’s Samus. It is merely the latest, this time based on her appearance in Metroid Prime 3.
Normally I’d pick fancy dress-wearing Zelda fover plain old green elf any day, but the DX version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess’ Link, packed with everything from the Ball and Chain to the Hawkeye mask is making it hard to decide.
More polygonal, too.
If the latest trend in action figures is to faithfully recreate a character’s actual on-screen appearance—rather than their original art/design—then I am all for it. Especially if we get more video game figures like these Sega ones.
Behold Lucina, resplendent and thoroughly badass in action figure form.
This Figma was first shown off over a year ago, but is only now getting ready to actually go on sale. It's been worth the wait.
Auguste Rodin's The Thinker is an iconic work of art. It's also an upcoming fully posable Figma figure.
This thing was first shown off over a year ago. And it's still not out. What's up, Figma? Killing us softly?
