Go for broke with these latest pre-orders


Who needs savings anyway?

If you've been hankering for some sweet, merchy goodness, then you're in luck. The good folks over at Tomopop regularly post about some of the nicest (and occasionally not quite so nice) statues and poseable figures available on the market.

In order to help destroy your savings and push you into the poor house, I'm giving you guys a heads up on a couple of figures that you'll want on your desk. No need to thank me, just remember me when you check your account and it's way lower than you thought. Then you'll know what it's like to be me. BWAHAHAHA!

Ahem. Anyway, hit the jump to see what you'll be spending your money on!

Medicom's Real Action Heroes Mikasa Ackerman

The calm, Titan-slaying dynamo from Attack on Titan gets an entry into the Real Action Heroes line. Known for their detail and multitude of accessories, the RAH lines is one of the best series of figures out there. They're also pretty expensive, so prepare several weeks of tuna sandwiches lunches to get the necessary coinage.


Good Smile Company's Madoka Kaname - The Beginning Story/The Everlasting

While I may not be the biggest Madoka fan, I recognize it's a solid show with a rabid fanbase. So rabid that they used to bring down figure websites when statues would go up for order. I'm not sure what the state of its fandom is these days, but the latest figure, based off the recently released movies, has already hit its pre-order allotment at several sites.


quesQ's Halloween Remilia and Scarlet

Speaking of fandoms I don't get, quesQ's got a pair of Halloween-themed Toho girls up for order. You got Remilia and Scarlet, both looking quite adorable. You can buy them separately or as a pair.

You know, I had a guy try and explain the Toho fandom to me and it was a half hour of my life I wish I had back. I was just nodding and smiling the entire time, edging toward a door so I could make my escape. I think that had more to do with the guy and less the actual material, but it's left a rather large stink on the whole thing for me. Anyway, I'm sure fans of these gals will love this.


Kotobukiya's Colette Brunel

Next up is Colette, from Tales of Symphonia. The pre-order for Colette is well-timed over on this side of the world, as word of the HD collection of the Symphonia games is still fresh. Considering Symphonia's popularity over here, I expect that there'll be more than a couple people that will be ordering this lovely lass. Personally, I'm more of a Sheena guy.


Kotobukiya's Cu-Poche Kuroneko

Finally, I'll wrap things up with a smaller poseable figure from Kotobukiya's Cu-Poche line. Meant to compete with Good Smile Company's Nendoroids and Bandai's Chibi-arts, the Cu-Poche's are looking pretty damn nice, especially their version of Kuroneko. I used to own the Nendoroid Kuroneko and I got bored of it pretty quick. The Cu-Poche seems to have more accessories and expressions, which was one of the criticisms I had with the Nendoroid. People who are still digging Ore no Imouto will probably love this little cutie. 

Any of you planning on snatching any of these lovely toys? If I had the extra cash, I'd definitely want a piece of that Mikasa.
