    Side note, anyone want this? I ended up with an extra. She's $77.78 plus shipping. Just let me know.

    It's not like she's completely naked lol. I don't see what the big deal is about displaying that figure.

    I hear you. Got Darkness as well, though i'm waiting for shipping from Japan to the US to resume before I start shipping my orders that I still have waiting with Anime Export, being her, Samus and MAFEX Spiderverse Peter. Besides that, I basically at this point have everyone in the party except for Megumin, so I definitely need to get my hands on her sooner or later, haha.

    I think in the end, it's a slight bit of a question of morality for some people. And as well as how people could perceive the opinions of outsiders on them for displaying something like that. Far cry, I know. But i'm throwing any reasonable argument out there. Also for me, those kinds of figures aren't really my bag for now. I for now go for the definitive version of a character, then branch out from there. I only really see myself getting Swimsuit Megumin primarily for the extra faces for the regular Megumin, which I would already have at that hypothetical point.

    Side note rq, I really hate the practice of leaving extra faces as pre-order bonuses. For me, someone that's pretty late in the collecting game, it's kind of a blow to the gut.

    "Big O! Showtime!"

    This is the first Figma I've bought since... Hm. 2017? I bought Figma Rem when she came out and sold her a few years later, so that about works out.
    I've never handled an EX Figma before, or in general many at all. Weird to me that his shirt collar and tie+coat are separate pieces of weird, softish rubber. Hope it holds up okay over time.

    Oh, they had one for a while now. She even had a cameo in Frame Arms Girl anime episode 6.

    Thats not what weirds me out. It says Takara, and not Goodsmile as the company.

    Kinda, but at the same time, Takara is not new to the brand of course. All the MHA stuff for example I think they had a hand in. I know they at least did for Deku and Bakugo.

    Listed as Distros. on MFC. While it's still odd why they're listed where GSC should on BBTS, it's not like it's thrown out of nowhere.

    Also if you check Nipako on MFC, Tomytec is the manufacturer for her.

    Misato best girl, with Asuka as a close second, haha.

    If only we got a Figma Misato and Shinji finally...

    BUT, I can think of one other mecha pilot who would get much more justice should she get her own as well...

    My Discord friends would legit see this and be like "Here he goes again..." at this point, haha.
