BLOG: Wonder Festival Winter 2014 – figma The Fool?
|It’s that wonderful time of the year again as Wonder Festival Winter 2014 has rolled in. At the Max Factory front, aside from their usual figma teases is this guy.
To the unfamiliar, this is the aptly named "The Fool", the sort of titular machine from the new series Nobunaga the Fool. What’s peculiar is that the figma name is plastered on this guy. Though the figure line has expanded outside anime girls, with RoboCop and Spider-Man among others, mecha is a totally different story.
Then again, their recent attempts to get a market share in the genre (i.e. Combat Armors MAX) makes this announcement less far-fetched. Will figma become a viable option in the mecha-based action figures scene together with Bandai’s ROBOT Damashii or Kaiyodo’s Revoltech?
