OH MY FREAKIN' GOD!

When did this get announced?!

This is awesome. Can't wait to see final product.

It was announced just a few hours ago. You lucky bastard, you.



And I'd love to see more Nintendo characters in figma form. Many of them, like Mario, Kirby and the Pokémon, probably wouldn't fit too well, but I'd love to see Fire Emblem characters and Captain Falcon (probably not happening). DK is doable, too.
Naner, you rock.

Why wouldn't Mario work? He's humanoid, his figure would just be smaller. Maybe they could make a two pack of Mario and Luigi and sell it for the same price as regular figures.

Maybe for all smaller characters they could do two packs? Pokemon Trainer with Pikachu or any of the three starters?

I'd love to see some Star Fox love, too.

I dunno... I don't remember figmas with such cartoonish shapes. But yeah, Red would make a great figma. So would Fox, Falco and co. And since those series are already in, how about some Zelda, Ganondorf, Ghirahim, Palutena, Anthony Higgs, Adam Malkovich, Armstrong Houston...?

I'd also like to see some non-Nintendo like Solid Snake.

Fantastic. I preordered my Link last week. Maybe they'll have Zelda or Ganondorf ones in the future? I'd also love to see them make a Ridley.

Just because they haven't done it before doesn't mean they'll avoid it :P

Snake would be awesome, but unlikely unless Kojima signs with them.

A Ridley figure would be AMAZING.

It would be incredible if some company, somewhere made a figma scale gunship.

I don't think Mario and Luigi would be problematic. They would be on a different scale from Samus, but they still have workable limbs to make a decent figure. Now, Wario and Kirby on the other hand would be difficult because they lack limbs for poses and customization.

For what I personally would like to see. Well, I am a big Fire Emblem fan, so any character from that series would work for me, though I would love to have Hardin above all else. A Captain Falcon figure would also be great, but most of its customization would be from Smash Bros, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it makes it a little less special. Finally, a really obscure character, I think Zoda from StarTropics would make an awesome figma. It'll never happen, but it would be very cool.

Out of the ones you mentioned, Captain Falcon has my vote.

I'd kinda like to see Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles. Armor choice would be hard though.

There's only one option for armor for anybody from Xenoblade Chronicles: Swimsuit!

I swear, my team even explored the frozen mountains in their swimsuits...
"Oh, final boss? No worries, I've got my lucky trunks on."
And death scenes become slightly comical with the inclusion of swim trunks and bikinis...

The chap and chapettes from Pandora's Tower would be a neat addition, too

Hahaha. I never used the swimsuit options. I still haven't even beaten the game. From what I remember (I took a break to play a few faster paced games after grinding for 50 or so hours),
I was in the capitol of the High Entia (I think that's what they were called?) and trying to save the princess before a giant Mechon and the traitor Queen had her executed in the ritual chamber.

Funny story: Very beginning of the game. I see the bikini in the armour shop for a steep sum (that early in the game, anyway), so I go out and grind to raise the funds for it. I'm sure you can remember what happens during the Mechon attack of the village...
Trying to acquire that bikini is what I believe made my crew overpowered for the rest of the game. Also all the sidequests.

When I first stepped into High Entia, I immediately thought, "This place is about to get Zealed."

Haha. I had no idea they were that good.

Also, some 3rd Party Figmas would be awesome. Since NECA never did it, Wesker from Resident Evil would be cool.

Well Sakurai said they're making two Kid Icarus figmas. One is going to be Pit, and there will be a variant based on Dark Pit. I imagine they'll be the same except for a few cosmetic differences, and perhaps some different accessories.

With regards to Xenoblade, I would be happy with any of the party members as figmas. Naturally, Shulk would get the first crack at it, but I love the whole party, so anything goes with me.
