I used to be a big Ragnarok Online fan back in grade 8 (that would be…seven years ago, holy crap!). A while back during the summer WonFes, this nendoroid was on display and it caught my attention instantly. Now, Mika-tan has released more pictures of the female (there are male equivalents for…dudes) Arch Bishop on her blog!
It seems stuff are still popping out. I just opened up a whole wallop of packages yesterday, and today another one showed up. My roommate picked it up for me as I was at work, (and since I didn’t change my ID to include my new address yet I couldn’t go to the post office to get it anyway).
And no, I didn’t unbox all of my figures yet.
Well, as noted by yesterday’s post, I was amidst in organizing my junk as I’ve just moved into a new place. Among the stuff include every single package (figures, the box of DVDs I opened a few weeks ago) that I ordered in the previous four months.
I originally imagined a happier moment when I’m doing this. Regardless, opening up a bunch of packages of figures did lighten my mood a bit.
As Saber is definitely making a come back these recent years since the release of the original visual novel in 2004 and the anime in 2006, I was hoping that they’d be releasing a figure of Rider as well…My wish has partly come true, as her figma was spotted in C77.
The Fate franchise has sprung up due to the movie but this is rather strange, because from what I remember Rider has at most two lines in the entire story (and those lines that she mutters is shared with Fate).
The fact that Rider is getting figmatized brings out a pretty big problem for me: I don’t have figma Saber (the armored version or the normal clothed version). By succumbing to this will mean…I’ll have to pick up at least one of the Saber figmas (and most likely end up with both) orz.
Rider is set for release in May of 2010.
We interrupt your boxing day budget planning for another intrution on your well balanced figure get list.
Remember that uncoloured Saber figure we saw during WonFes earlier this year? Well, the production plans are currently underway and we now have a coloured picture of the prototype.
The first package I’ve recieved in ages. Once again, it’s one of those “more interesting” that happened these periods of time and it’s also a time for me to not angst over that stupid mistake I made on my organic chemistry exam (it’s the principle dammit! I want to be the 7th person who got perfect *runs away crying*) <- I’m seriously losing it, please ignore.
Once again, it’s not about how good the game is, apparently with these kind of stuff it never is. Even though Fate/Extra have just been recently announced with very few details attached, new figures are already in the making.
Attached to the PSP game bundle will include the new, only briefly seen version of Saber in red. So now, it no longer matters how well the game is designed, it’s all about the figma. I can’t say the marketing strategy isn’t effective *mumbling curses*.
Preview under the cut.
