Exclusive figures are a curse upon collecting. They almost always cost more than retail if you don't live in Japan, but they are also almost always something collectors really, really want. Well, Good Smile Company decided to unveil some kickass figures for Winter Wonder Festival. So without further ado, hit the jump to check them all out... and weep as your wallet mysteriously empties itself.
Don't worry, there's more than Ultraman from GSC this year. :P
Let's start with Good Smile Company's big franchise, Black Rock Shooter. Of course you had to expect some exclusives, and this time we get the Figma of Kuroi Mato, which will retail for ¥2,500. 3000 will be available at WonFest, but she will also be available online in limited numbers on February 13th on Good Smile Company's website, but they don't ship to the US so you will need a proxy! I swore I was never going to buy any figures of her because the OVA was so boring, but man... those faces are amazing!
Then, again from Black Rock Shooter, we have a Petit Nendoroid set of Kuroi Mato and Takanashi Yomi, which will retail for ¥1,500. Like the Mato Figma, 3000 will be available at the event, and orders will open online on February 13th. These sure are cute, and their low price point is sure to entice a lot of buyers.
Next up we have the oh-so-adorable super poseable Snow Miku, who comes with *gasp* new Miku faces! Also, a snowman. She will retail for ï¿¥4,000, and again there will be 3000 pieces of her available at the show with online orders opening for a limited time on February 13th.
Next we have another Nendoroid, a limited white coat edition of Makise! People complained about the rather expressionless faces in the first one, but that is certainly not an issue her. They are SO CUTE! She will be ï¿¥3,000 with, surprise surprise, 3000 available at the show and online orders opening on February 13th. Note that for all of the Nendoroids and Figmas, online orders at Good Smile Company's site will be open for 6 days only!
Now for something totally different, we have a non-poseable figure of Ultraman 80 produced by Max Factory, which will retail for ï¿¥4,000. Unlike the other figures, he is much more limited, and there are only 300 of him at the show. Orders will open online on the 13th like the other figures, but only 100 will be available online!
And last but not least, it seems that Good Smile Company is now doing distribution for 3A! They have an exclusive WRR Japan Defense Force Set there, which retails for ï¿¥12,000. There will be 300 at the show, and when orders open online on the 13th only 200 will go up.
Please note that all items are limited to 2 per person, and online orders will ship in late June!
So, Tomopeeps, those are Good Smile Company's offerings for Winter WonFest 2011! I know I need that Makise in my life, and that Snow Miku is too adorable to pass up. But what about you guys? Are you finding any of these figures particularly tempting?
