Good Smile Company's Mikasa Ackerman leaps off roofs, into pre-orders photo
Good Smile Company's Mikasa Ackerman leaps off roofs, into pre-orders
by Martin Siggers

Although I proclaimed Kotobukiya's version of Eren Jaeger the only Attack On Titan figure you'd ever need, I might be forced to eat my words here, as Good Smile Company have served up a full preview of their astounding take on Mikasa Ackerman to go along with pre-orders opening today.

Like Kotobukiya, GSC have chosen to show their subject in full flight, hair, clothes and weapons flailing out in a great display of movement. Mikasa here is portrayed very much in character - demure, but with steely determination. The pose is really dynamic, though if I had a critique I'd say she's a little too turned around, making it a bit unnatural. Detailing is, as you'd expect from GSC, immaculate.

The company has chosen to offer Mikasa in two forms, both identical except for one detail. The 'DX' version, priced at 14,200 and exclusive to the GSC Online Shop, includes a wonderful looking base designed to mimick a rooftop, while the regular version (13,200) does without. The base is a fantastic bonus for sure, but many buyers will have to be tempted by the prospect of store discounts on the regular version. Either way, for fans who simply can't have her soon enough, we've got links for you below.

Nendoroid Aoba bares it all in time for pre-orders photo
Nendoroid Aoba bares it all in time for pre-orders
by Martin Siggers

Boy Nendoroids are perhaps even rarer than boy figmas, so it's always a big deal whenever one shows up. Particularly when they look as good as Aoba, protagonist of the PC game DRAMAtical Muder and now ultra-adorable deformed bishounen.

First revealed at Wonder Festival earlier this year, Kahotan's now got the scoop on the final production version, finished off in Aoba's trademark blue palette. The wizards at GSC have done their usual terrific job recreating the fine details, be it his puffy bomber jacket or extravagant boots, and that shock of cyan hair is very eye-catching. His adorable dog Ren is present and correct too and wonderfully modelled for the scale. Aside from the standard expressions, Aoba's also got a truly unique accessory - the option to drive fans wild by going shirtless, with matching alternate hair to recreate a soundtrack album cover.

It all adds up to a package that's both unique and easy on the eye, and I'm sure legions of fanboys and fangirls are racing to get their pre-orders in. You can actually do that right now, as Aoba's on sale at 3,889, with orders due to land in September. Any of you have room for a big-headed pretty boy in your life readers?

[UPDATED] Good Smile Company's Mio Honda has stars in her ears photo
[UPDATED] Good Smile Company's Mio Honda has stars in her ears
by Martin Siggers

[Update: Pre-orders are up! Click the links below to get her] 

Good Smile Company have really been knocking it out of the park with their iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls figures lately. Even though I'm an avowed non-fan of the series I've really been digging some of the recent figures like Uzuki Shimamura. Now it's Mio Honda's turn to join the troupe, done up in her 'New Generation' look.

She's looking pretty good too. I'm a big fan of the orange and red colour scheme, although perhaps slightly less so of the pose. It's fine, just a bit generic is all. The base  is a nice bonus too. As ever GSC's eye for detail is up to scratch, be it the glossy finish on her boots or the delightful star shaped charms she's got scattered about her person. It's a pretty loud, brash figure, but I'm going to guess that's pretty in keeping with the character.

All in all it definitely looks like another winner. Pre-orders are up now at a not-unreasonable ¥8,380 and she'll be on your own personal stage come October
