Yeah, several figure sites seem to incorrectly conflate "on sale" and "for sale".

Not quite as cool as the Phat one that came out awhile back, but the Kotibukia Shiro is 60 dollars cheaper.

At least not Goodsmile racing. Miku is quite the corporate shill. Ika had a set of nendroid petits that were sponsoired by LMP Motorsports http://www.lmpcars.com/motorsport/syste ... petit.html
*edit*
Not sure if Tiger and Bunny count since xorporate sponsorship is part of the show

I was really tempted by that one.

I've got her preorderd but, sadly, she's not here yet. She looks good though. Is that your work collection that she's in?

Yeah, she is on my desk. Starting to run out of desk space for figures, and the massive box this came in has maxed out my file cabinet storage

Looks like Tanya's made the Nendoroid list already. Here's to hoping for a nice scale figure as well!

That does seem like a pretty fast turn-around.

If I have to say to myself too many more times, "I'd get that if I bought Nendoroids"...

But by now it's much too late to start.

I can't fathom the notion of "late" with regard to Nendoroids unless you plan to track them all down. They make for great filler figures for all of those inevitable gaps among larger scale figures that are rendered relatively unusable otherwise.

I have no actual argument with that; I was just goofing people around. Being "too late" to do something - say, start watching one of the zillion-episode shows such as Fairy Tail - is kind of a recurring motif in anime fandom, but you're right, it doesn't really make any sense.

But I do have a problem with how expensive Nendoroids are for what you get.

Arg! I missed WonFes again! I thought it was in August for some reason. They usually do a live show and show off figures which is pretty interesting, but I guess I missed it. Just a few interesting pieces I’ve seen so far.

10th anniversary Miku looks to be nice.
Image

Harvest Moon Miku getting a scale figure. Rin and Ren also getting Harvest Moon nendoroid releases.
Image

I’m glad these two got a scale and that it’s done by GSC, but I wish it was a little more dynamic or emotional.
Image

Interesting throwback.
Image

Aniplex+ Homura got painted. Looks good with Madoka.
