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.

Nendoroid Petite x Tamiya Mini 4WD

Vroooom… vrooooom… or more like buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz as these Tamiya mini 4WD engines have that distinctive high pitched buzzing sound. However, I seriously doubt that these two will see any track time at all!

Miku was available for preorder on AmiAmi a fortnight ago and today AmiAmi listed Saber’s version on their front page as well. Both are going for 1690 yen each, with AmiAmi only offering a miserly 15% discount this time round.

The nendoroid themselves are typical standard petite offerings from GSC, but as far as I know of, this is the first time Tamiya has released something so exceedingly cool. Its Mini 4WD series has a large and dedicated fanbase, and it does regularly release itasha offerings as well as crossovers (mainly Japanese sports or idol themed) but my oh my, this pair blows everything else out of the water.
