GSC releases info for Winter Wonder Festival exclusives
Not in Japan to experience all the Winter Wonder Festival goodness? Don't worry, Good Smile Company has graced their foreign fans with information on their Winter WonFes exclusives, available for pre-order online Feb. 12 through Feb. 20. All four figures are being made to order and are set to be released late-June 2012. Orders are limited to three figures a pop and shipping is ¥2,000.
First up is Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat Ver. The latest version of the chilly virtual songstress comes with some new facial expressions, a shovel that doubles as part of a mic stand, a "snow sculpture" Nendoroid Petit and a stage with LED lights for said sculpture. She'll set you back ¥4,000.
Next up is Nendoroid Homura Akemi: School Uniform Ver. This time around, Homura is rocking her school outfit, with an adorable set of glasses. There's also mention of her handkerchief, her school bag, an additional lower section to have her sitting down and an extra hair piece with Madoka's ribbon. Having never finished Puella Magi Madoka Magica, I don't know if that's anything special or not, but it's there if you want it! If you want to have her looking a bit more serious, she also has her bow and a wicked pair of wings you can toss on her back. Homura will cost ¥3,500. There's also a figma version of school girl Homura, which comes with some extra weapons and expressions that you can use on the standard Homura figma should you own it. That will run you ¥3,000.
Finally, GSC is selling the WWR JDF Mighty Square by ThreeA. As previously posted by Brian, this Mighty Square is painted in the Japanese Defense Force colors, which is a nice little touch. According to the product page, he's the third Square to join the line and, if the picture is anything to go by, is the biggest of them all. Each Mighty Square will cost ¥12,600. Once Mighty Square and the other girls go live, we'll be sure to hit you guys with the links.
I've definitely got my eyes set on that Snow Miku, as I've passed over the other versions of her. I love the coat she's got on and the gem she's got on her bow. Nice touches over all! That Homura looks cute too, even if I don't have any particular affinity to Madoka Magica. Mighty Square, well, is certainly nice and cube-like. I'm sure somebody out there will dig him. So what do ya'll think?
