New in: figma Usada Pekora

As I teased with my Ryuko Nendoroid recently, there was another shipment arriving very soon. It’s the Usada Pekora figma! It was announced in June of 2021 and I have been waiting for it patiently.

As a pre-order bonus, I got the alternate expression Nousagi (the little bunny guy with the “XD” face).

This is my first figma and it looks surprisingly good. This brand is more akin to something like an action figure. The figurines have movable joints to create all kinds of cool poses. There’s a big amount of flexibility when it comes to how you want to present your piece, which I really like.

Like Nendoroids, they also come with swappable face plates for different expressions. Pekora specifically, also has her infamous Rocket Launcher with her and a sunglasses accessory.

New in: Nendoroid Ryuko Matoi: Souvenir Jacket Ver.

Today, my first Nendoroid arrived. It’s Ryuko Matoi from Kill la Kill, with her outfit from the final/special episode of the anime.

I ordered this Nendoroid last year and due to the pandemic, the delivery really got dragged out. I’m glad it finally made it here, because I really like Ryuko and Kill la Kill in general.

A while ago, I decided I would be trying out Figuya more, which is a reseller based here in Germany, instead of Good Smile Company directly. This is mostly because then I won’t have to deal with customs fees and confusing international shipping. Figuya is a reputable seller so I don’t think I have anything to worry about there.

Regardless, I still have some more figurines coming in from Good Smile Company directly, including one which was already shipped and will probably arrive later this month. I will of course give an update on it when it arrives.
