The count down continues to the 2013 Wonder Festival (Winter) and Mikatan has turned her attention towards two of Max Factory's exclusives, figma Rin Shibuya and Anzu Futaba. Like many of the offerings this time around the pair hail from the hit game IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls. If you've read this month's DO WANT then you probably know I'm really looking forward to these two.
Starting with Rin Shibuya she seems to be the less popular of the two, but I find she has a lot of charm of her own. My hands-down favorite thing about this figure is that she can be posed to look like her hands are in her sweater pockets. That's a totally unique feature to this figure that really sets it apart from the rest. The other great feature is her little dog 'Hanako' on the leash. The leash itself seems to be able to hold shapes as well which is perfect for posing. Looks like they really did a great job of capturing the character.
Then there's Anzu Futaba. Judging from people jumping on group orders she might be second most popular WF figure to be offered at the Good Smile Company store behind the latest Nendoroid Snow Miku, and for good reason. This really is one of the most adorable figma ever made. The expressions are perfect and it's probably hard to pose her without her looking cute. Mikatan translates the shirt as reading 'If you work, you lose' which certainly seems to fit her well. We're also given our first good look at the height difference, Anzu is a really short figure which probably just enhances her cuteness.
It's going to be a long wait until these ship in June baring any delays, but they'll be well worth it. I've already joined a group order so I'm committed, who's with me?
