Jeremy Crocker here, probably better known around the net as Emerje, I'm an associate editor here at Tomopop. I've been an avid figure collector my entire life. There's no time when I can remember ever not using my allowance or paycheck to buy new toys. As a child born in 1980 I lived through the time that's currently basking in a nostalgia pop culture resurgence. Transformers, G.I. Joe, Voltron, He-man and many others were as much a part of my childhood as they are my adulthood.
In the early '90s I was first introduced to anime and have been a fan ever since. With nearly 20 years of taking part in otaku culture Japanese figures make a very large part of my daily collecting. I couldn't imagine what my collection would look like today without figma, Revoltech, and various other lines on my shelf.
Aside from toys and anime I'm also a gamer with a preference towards JRPGs and fighting games. I still have every game and console I've ever owned since the NES days with only a few games lost to the years. Even now my favorite games are 2D over 3D, I just love the look of simple hand drawn sprites, especially from back in SNES and PS1 days. I'm just as content playing through Chrono Trigger again as I am any of the newest releases.
You might remember back in April when GSC was doing their big poll on what figures fans would like to see get reissued that Reimu was #5 on the figma list. So now, making good on their promise to do everything in their power to get these figures back up for sale, Max Factory will be offering Reimu up as a limited pre-order! And the best part is this time around she's available outside Japan through the GoodSmile online shop for 2,800 yen and 2,000 yen flat rate shipping. Orders will be taken until July 4th at 9:00pm Japanese time and ship in October.
And it doesn't end there, Kirisame Marisa has also been confirmed for reissue with details coming soon. Marisa ranked #13 on the poll.
On a side note, GSC continues to update the poll to show which figures have been reissued.
