1/7 Fairy Tail Lucy by Good Smile Company

About time really!

Among the more mainstream and popular anime/manga serializations, One Piece seems to get the bulk of the PVC love. It has always irked me that another rather similar looking and equally enjoyable (so similar that one cannot be faulted in thinking that both were drawn and written by the same person – they are not) title hasn’t received a major PVC release.

But fret no more – Fairy Tail gets a figurine, and from Good Smile Company no less.

Seems quite close to the source art.

Nothing spectacular – plain and simple are the first things that come to mind here. I do like how closely she mirrors her 2D anime counterpart, and that can only be a good thing. Megahouse’s POP line for One Piece shares these same characteristics, and preorder allocations are often sold out within the day.

Preorder her here, for 6580 yen, after discounts. One can only hope that Lucy will be as popular (and as commercially successful) as Nami & friends.

We’re not dead yet!

Phew, I am finally back. Sorry for the lack of updates over the past week or so folks. My wife has just given birth to our first baby (on Valentine’s Day, off all days haha), which meant I was practically running to and from the hospital up till yesterday.

It looks like I’ve missed a whole lot of Lego news from the recent UK Toy Fair, as well as a fair bit of Transformers news. I regret I may not be able to post up all the latest news, but I will be updating fresh news from this point on, so keep checking back!
