No GravatarWelcome to the second installment of Go Figures Friday, today I have a nice assortment of figures too beautiful to resist.

Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 1/8 Scale Kururugi Suzaku Knight of Zero

Code Geass action figures never cease to amaze me. This one was such a beauty I shed a manly tear.

Suzaku as the Knight of Zero. Quite pricey but completely worth it. You can just feel the wind blowing through his robe and the dark mood that envelops him as the show comes to its end. You can also remove the robe to show more of his powerful skinny frame. I’m getting him right after buying Lelouch in his emperor outfit, they totally complement each other.

I love the attention paid to details.

Makers: Alpha Omega  Average online price: $111.85

Bakuman Eiji Niizuma Nendoroid

 

Antagonist from a manga about…. well, drawing manga (from the makers of Death Note), Eiji is a rival manga artist. With extra legs and hands as well as three changeable faces, he’s an adorable addition to anyone’s collection.

Makers: Phat Company  Average online price: $56.65

Traveling Mood Hatsune Miku

Yep, another Vocaloid figure. There are so many of those I feel sorry for whoever aims to collect them all. This one in particular is based off the song “Traveling Mood” and the image in its original video. A beautiful figure which captures the airy feeling of impending adventure that life brings at times, it really stands out from other Miku figures.

Chess Pieces Collection R One Piece Volume 1

One Piece’s rise in popularity seems to have resulted in a spawn of new figurines, and this new line of them only compliments it.

They’re all the characters after several years apart. There are six in total. Luffy, Chopper, Usopp, Sanji, Zoro, and Nami. Sorry Brook, Franky, and Robin fans. My only dissapointment is they’re random assortment boxes, so good luck guessing which you’re going to get or enjoy paying extra for them just so you don’t buy the same one twice (I hate it with a burning passion).

Makers: Bandai  Average online price: $9.49

No GravatarIt has been announced the long awaited Code Geass series Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito, or Code Geass: Akito the Exiled, will not become a full length TV series but four OVAs released in theaters starting this summer and given a Blu Ray release every three months. As disappointing as it might be, the OVAs are about 50 minutes each and look like they promise the same mecha action and amazing story telling present in its previous two seasons. Despite how Lelouch sadly might not be present in this, the show’s description arouses interest.

It takes place during the same time as Lelouch becomes Zero. But rather than taking place in Zone 11 (formerly known as Japan) it takes place in Euro Universe (formerly known as Europe) and stars two different characters. The main character is Akito Hyuga, a clone of Lelouch with long blue hair and blue eyes, and Layla Malkal, whom I can only theorize serves the same role as C.C. and is a blonde with blue eyes. The Holy Britannian Empire is trying to take over the Euro Universe and is doing so successfully, so out of desperation the Euro Universe creates a special Knightmare division made up of Japanese teenagers Akito is part of under the command of Layla who was a former Britannian aristocrat. The character design for that series is once again handled by CLAMP and is directed by Kazuki Akane, who directed several Mobile Suit Gundam series and movies, so only high quality work is to be expected from me.

You better not let me down anime Gods!

Despite the fact it’s not being turned into a full fledged TV show, I expect nothing but greatness from these OVAs. To somewhat let down fans like me, I believe we can find solace in the fact we’re getting something much greater than the typical one shot OVAs the series has been spawning continuously. And despite the fact we’re not going to see these OVAs right away, we should rejoice that Nunnally in Wonderland will be released on DVD with English subtitles this July to hold us over our long Code Geass withdrawal.
