I’m pretty excited about a lot of these, especially the Geass trading figures, the Fasalina (now that we’re finally allowed to show her!) and the new Excellent Model from Tsukasa Jun (predictably, I suppose). I’m not providing full-resolution images as a small incentive to buy the magazine for those who may be interested; it’s available for shipping internationally at the following locations: [Mangaoh] [Amazon]

    That Fasalina looks to be a very nice figure. I think I’ll have to preorder one.

    I’d like to say my prayers have been answered… but with this news I can only see financial ruin ahead of me… T_T

    can’t wait to see the tsukasa figure (more T&A in my office) and the Fasalina too :))

    Nice to see the new FREEing instalment. That Tsuruya might very well be the first widely-available pvc type figure of her which doesn’t suck. :P

    Hmm… nice nice. Fasalina will be a definite buy, as well as maybe Tsuruya-san if I catch the pre-order window in time.

    Wow, they skipped Yuki; not a complaint at all, but I hope they get Tsuruya right. Not that I could buy her, I’m already broke; too many good stuff this year. orz

    Fasalina looks nice, very tempting

    hmm…have to cancel my preorder for Geass otomedama set and wait for the ex-portrait set instead.

    Why yes Wendy-san it is very hot in here. No, I don’t mind take off whatever you want.
    ;-) I am such a perv.

    Well, at least out of all that I can try and preorder the Tsuruya. I’m not a fan of sitting figures, so the rest aren’t a big thing in my book…

    Faisalina, C.C. and Hanako-san…………. (am speechless) O_O
