figFIX Shimakaze: Half-Damage Ver

| Figma, Max Factory

It’s interesting how my love of Kantai Collection all started with Nendoroid Shimakaze! She was so cute I had to see what all the fuss was about! Make sure to follow me on twitter @gsc_mamitan, we’ve got some cool things coming up soon and you’ll want to follow me! When we announced the figFIX line I was beyond excited, especially for those of us who love the figma size and design but aren’t a huge fan of joints. One of the reasons I love the figma line so much is because the joints are really subtle, but this new lines takes what we love about figma and removes the joints! The first of the line HAD to be Shimakaze! This half [...] Read More »

Retro Wednesday: Figma Kirino Kousaka & Kuroneko

| Figma, Max Factory

For Retro Wednesday this week we have two more Figmas! This time it’s Figma Kirino Kousaka and Kuroneko from the popular series Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai which translates to My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute. But to make things easier we’ll refer to it how most fans call it, Oreimo. Now I’m sure i’m going to get the comments, “This isn’t retro! Oreimo isn’t old!” Well for Retro Wednesday it’s not all about “old” figures and series but figures we’ve created over a year ago. My goal is to show you some figures you maybe didn’t know existed! So let’s get started! First up is Kirino! She’s the main character in the series Oreimo. A [...] Read More »

Retro Wednesday: Lucky Star Winter Figma Set

| Figma

Something I want to try on you guys is a weekly post (or semi weekly) called Retro Wednesday, where I’ll do a mini review of some “older” Good Smile Company and Family releases. Being that we’re located in the US I’d like to change things up a bit and show you guys some of our older catalog items. How they’ve stood the test of time and also maybe show you something we have that you didn’t even know existed! This week we’ll take a look at the original Lucky Star set released back in 2008, now I say “set” but they were each sold separately. Being a fan of Lucky Star I was excited to get these figmas when they were [...] Read More »
