Fans of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail or Rave Master would recognize the adorable Plue and probably want to just hug him all day. I know I do, which is why I'm happy to share that for a mere US$20, you could summon your own Plue right to your home. He's due out in August, so you don't have long to wait, either.
I'm pretty excited to see the trend in Fairy Tail merchandise. With 24 more episodes of the series being licensed along with the upcoming movie, the show is doing well enough that companies are paying more attention to the property. In case you missed it, Good Smile Company snuck a Lucy Heartfilia 1/7-scale figure prototype on us at Wonder Festival, too. It seems like only yesterday (actually, it was last year at NYAF) that Hiro Mashima told me he had "no comment" regarding figures and merchandise for Fairy Tail besides the keychains and random things that were already available. The future is looking pretty bright, now.
So, here's hoping Happy, Carla and Panther Lily are next in line for plushies!
