Usually what draws me to a figure is how well the creators have managed to capture the original feel of the character--my gushing over various Buriki-styled figures the most notable example. Sometimes, though, a manufacturer will take things into their own hands, as we've seen with Gift and Satoshi Toda's rendition of Madoka's fierce Homura.
We took a look at the figure in detail yesterday, but for those who may have missed it, she's now up for pre-orders as well. I'm not entirely sure what I think of it, myself. For the most part it's an absolutely fantastic looking design, with an amazing amount of detail put into everything from her weapons to her hair and costume. Still, the face. I'm not so sure about that face. I can appreciate unique takes on characters, but she looks about twenty-five. What do you think? A little too out there, or is the uniqueness right up your alley? If it's the latter, get ready to pick her up in April (yikes!) for around ¥9,334.
