We figure lovers know that every month new figures are launched but this first half of 2008 is being crazy, our wallets are already trembling in fear for a possible emptiness future. And who’s leading the way so far?! No one actually because each major figure maker has their own licenses to make the figures they purchased. For me Alter is leading so far as I mentioned in a previous post, I’m not a fan of Alter nor Max Factory, nor Good Smile, I just want to know if the figures are well made that’s all but Alter this year is definitely on a roll with more lovely figures incoming till July.
Also for next month from Good Smile we got Kuonji Shinra-sama from the series They Are my Noble Masters a must watch series with loads of fun and cameo stuff from other series and with voice actors from other series like G Gundam (main character) and from Haruhi Suzumiya (Mikuru voice actor). Her price 6,190 yen.
For May we got two more figures from Good Smile, ChuChu Astram and another figure from Shuraki line designed by Shunya Yamashita, Needa. Both at the price of 6,476 yen.
For July (skipped June, check here ) we go three launches, two by Alter and one by Max Factory.
By Alter we got Chouun Shiryuu from Ikkitousen Dragon Destiny, really really nice figure even with her eyes closed but what attracts me the most in this figure is her hair and hand (holding the sword) so frickin amazing. I’m guessing that Alter will probably release almost the entire Dragon Destiny girls cast. Her price 6,800 yen.
Also and again from Alter we got Lily Salvatana or the cowgirl with big eyes popping out, shes from the game Satsuriku no Jango, you may know another figure from the same game, Donne Anonime. Her price 6,800 yen.
Well to conclude… their prices are way high than what we used to have some time ago, I kinda understand why the prices are so high, with the escalating rise of oil mostly because of the credit problems in the US since last August prices of everything around the world have been rising like hell so we have to handle it unfortunately.
