Time to present the Top 5 Pre-order Figure Announcements by GoodSmile Company! As always, keep in mind this is just a list of the top five favorite figure announcements by an anonymous writer for Tokyo Anime News, with the number one spot being the highest rank. It’s not ranked by any kind of numerical data, just a matter of personal opinion!
5. POP UP PARADE Mako Mankanshoku
Sure you could say that Mako’s figure is simple-looking compared to other figures, but that’s the beauty of her character design! Besides, it’s Mako! She and Kill la Kill hold a special place in my heart. The anime is nearing its 10 year anniversary since it first aired, and it definitely stands the test of time. Hopefully we get more Kill la Kill figures for the anniversary. Until then, this sweet Mako figure where she makes one of her iconic poses will tide me over. GoodSmile prices her at ¥3,900.
This is actually a re-release, and it’s a well-deserved one! There have been some cool figma over the years, but few boast as much attention to deal as this figure! It really brings the Bloodborne character to life. There’s a regular edition and a DX The Old Hunters Edition up for pre-order, as well as a separate weapon set. Because you, Hunter is all about the arsenal and the action! The regular edition is priced at ¥8,963, while the DX edition is priced at ¥12,800.
Birthdays are always fun, and now you can keep that festive feeling all year long with this Rem figure! The cake looks as delicious as the Re:Zero waifu does in her outfit, and she’s resting on a fluffy white base that’s soothing to the touch. And can we talk about that smile? It’s just too precious! This figure is made by KADOKAWA so you know it’s a high quality figure! GoodSmile prices it at ¥14,056.
We’re going from a very innocent figure to a… not so innocent figure. One thing is abundantly clear. Freia’s Light Novel version is WAY thiccer than her anime counterpart. And I’m not complaining! Redo of Healer caused quite a splash recently, and this figure is aiming to do the same. Freia is looking super hot, and she comes with multiple faces. I love the bed style base. And you can complete the set by picking up the very blue Setsuna figure! Both girls are separately priced at ¥20,680.
Congratulation to Ike for making it to my #1 spot! I’m a lover of swords and action, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that Fire Emblem’s Ike made my list. The paint job, the expression on his face, the pose… all top tier stuff. It’s a must have, especially if you’re a FE fan. This monument to a gaming hero is priced at ¥22,000.
