figma Tracer (Overwatch)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

This morning we had a product announcement at four in the morning Japan time in order to get the news out at the same time worldwide! Without further ado, today I’m going to be taking a look at the first figma from Overwatch…

figma Tracer!

From the globally popular multiplayer first-person shooter Overwatch® comes a figma of Tracer!

  • The smooth yet posable figma joints allow you to act out a variety of different scenes.
  • A flexible plastic is used in specific areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
  • Tracer comes with three face plates, including a smiling face, an excited expression, and a serious, confident expression.
  • Optional parts include her trusty Pulse Pistols as well as a Pulse Bomb to display her using her ultimate ability.
  • Also included is an articulated figma stand to facilitate various exciting poses.

“Look out, world! figma Tracer’s here.”
The time-jumping adventurer and an irrepressible force for good, Tracer is joining the figma series!


Her lovely wide eyes, cute face and the incredible details on her outfit and accessories have all been sculpted with amazing detail! ((´д`●))三((●´д`))

Even the fluffy appearance of the inside of her jacket collar and sleeves has been faithfully captured!

The flag on her arm and the chronal accelerator on her front and back have also been carefully included, staying as close to the game designs as possible! Be sure to take a nice close look once she joins your collection!

▲ Her cute hairstyle has also been captured!

This is how she looks displayed beside her Nendoroid! ♪

▲ figma Tracer stands around 14cm in height! The Nendoroid is about 10cm!

As a side note, Nendoroid Tracer: Classic Skin Edition is scheduled to be released in August!

Going back to the figma…

The figma of Tracer includes her trusty rapid-fire Pulse Pistols allowing you to pose her heading into battle! ★

This can be combined with her serious face plate to create a confident looking Tracer, ready to blink around in search of her next target! ♡

She also comes with an excited, smiling face plate which can be used to bring out the more innocent and playful side of her personality! ٩(๑òωó๑)۶

▲ The sculpt of her mouth is lovely! I can just imagine her cheerful voice!

Plus she also of course comes with a Pulse Bomb to display her making use of her ultimate ability! ♪

Simply select the expression and parts you want and recreate all sorts of scenes from the game! Not to mention all sorts of original poses as well! ☆

Even the tip of her toes are articulated allowing for more speedy looking action poses perfect for Tracer! ε=(。・д・。)

The figma series makes action figures that are so much fun to play with and move around into all sorts of poses!

Be sure to add this hero to your collection! The world could always use more heroes!

figma Link & Zelda: Twilight Princess ver. (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)

Strength, intelligence, courage… I hope  I’ll be able to gain at least one of those traits eventually!

Hello everyone! My name is Isono, a member of Max Factory’s planning team! Today I’m going to be taking a look at these products that went up for preorder today!


figma Link: Twilight Princess ver. &
figma Zelda: Twilight Princess ver.!

(*Each sold separately!)

From The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess comes a figma main character and hero of the series Link together with the Princess of Hyrule, Zelda!

They’re both so amazing!! So… beautiful!!! With just one quick glance at the figures you can tell that the sculpting and painting of both is so amazingly detailed!! Let’s take a closer look at them one-by-one! Ladies first!

figma Zelda: Twilight Princess ver.!

▲ This first photo shows off her dignified expression as well as the sword that she holds at the ready! 

▼ Let’s also take a look at the back…


She looks beautiful no matter what side you choose to look at her from! The somewhat mysterious atmosphere about the Twilight Princess version of Zelda has also been captured so nicely!

The first thing that really stands out about figma Zelda is the lovely colors! The paintwork on her accessories, dress and skirt almost all make use of a pearl paint which gives her outfit a silky, gorgeous shine. That said, the shine is by no means a glittery effect, but more of an elegant gleam that creates a lovely dignified look at captures Zelda beautifully!

By the way, although you can’t see them in these photos, Zelda’s pants and boots have also been faithfully sculpted and painted underneath the dress!

▼Another thing to note is the intricate changes in color all over the figure!


The arrows all point to areas that have been painted with the utmost attention to detail!


▲ Next up we have her smiling expression!

Such a gentle smile that just overflows with both kindness and beauty! The next point I want to make everyone aware of is the accessories and ornaments on her outfit… the shoulder armor, crown and various other parts are all made using 3D sculpting! The fact that they are made this way allows the more intricate patterns and shapes to be preserved!


▲ The Bow of Light she used in the battle with Ganondorf is also included!

The bow also of course features pearl paint! The bow and arrow itself has also been beautifully sculpted from top to bottom creating stunning beauty that you would normally never associate with a weapon! The skirt is also articulated allowing for a wide range of different posing options!

figma Zelda: Twilight Princess ver.!

She comes with two expressions: a standard expression and smiling expression as well as two accessories: a sword and the Bow of Light!

She will be available for ¥5,600 (Before Tax)!

Next up, we move onto the hero of our story…

figma Link: Twilight Princess ver.


▲ This confident expression with tense eyes always leaves such a strong impression!

The build of his body has been captured so nicely showing off just how handsome this version of Link is!! The overall sober tone of colors used makes him look a little more grown-up compared to the previous figma figures of Link! Let’s take a closer look at his heroic outfit!!

▼ The arrows here show the chain mail armor made with 3D sculpting!


You can see each of the little chain links creating a lovely texture for the armor!

▼There us also a joint located in the hat, which allows it to be moved around both horizontally and vertically!




▲ Next up we have a face with clenched teeth!

This glaring expression is perfect for combat poses and instantly makes Link look more skilled with his weapons! The series classics have been included with the Master Sword and Hylian Shield both included!

▼ The Master Sword can also be sheathed on his back!



▲ A powerful shouting expression is also included!

This makes for a very daring and resolute appearance that looks great with dynamic poses like the one above!

To summarize…

figma Link: Twilight Princess ver.!

He comes with three expressions: a standard expressionclenched teeth expression and shouting expression as well as two accessories: the Master Sword and Hylian Shield!

He will be available for ¥5,093 (Before Tax)!

But that’s not all!!

Once again we have a special DX Edition that comes with a variety of bonus items for way more posing options that bring out the Legend of Zelda universe!


▲ The Ordon Sword and scabbard used by Link at the start of the game! 


▲ The Hero’s Bow and Arrow and Hawkeye!


▲ The Ball and Chain!


▲ And the Clawshot!!

Plus the Clawshot comes in both an opened and closed form for different posing opportunities!

All of these amazing items are included with the DX Edition!

· Ordon Sword and Scabbard
· Hero’s Bow and Arrow
· Hawkeye
· Ball and Chain
· Clawshot

Just look at the full line-up of parts all lined up with the DX Edition!


figma Link: Twilight Princess ver. DX Edition

Everything above will cost just ¥6,000 (Before Tax)!

If you’re not sure which version to get, I highly recommend saving up just a little more for the DX Edition! The extra parts add so much play value and different variations that are so much fun! v(‘ω’*v)

figma Sinon

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I completely forgot that yesterday was Hinamatsuri! I’ll be one day late, but I’ll have some shirozake and hina-arare later today!

Anyway, today I’m going to be looking at an item from Max Factory going on sale later this month !

figma Sinon!

△ Climbing a tree for a better sniping position! ★

Just like the Nendoroid, Sinon’s figma is so much fun to move around and play with!

The joints move around so very freely making to so easy to pose her with other items and figures! I quite enjoyed matching her up with rather unusual items! ♪

△ Sinon stops a fight between a Shield Liger and Mr.Penguin.

If you are very careful with balance you can make awesome action poses like this! <○><○>

△ A pistol and effect parts are also included!

I imagine that outdoor photos with Sinon would open up all sorts of fun opportunities! Now that it’s starting to warm up I hope that I can find the time to go on more figure photo outings! 

That reminds me! A quick reminder!!


I’m currently looking for a photo to use as my Spring Twitter header!

But anyway, let’s get back to figma Sinon! 

She seems to have taken position on the photocopier…!

△She can easily take a prone sniping pose!

I wonder what she’s aiming at…? <○><○>

△ There are lots of woosers… but that’s not quite where she’s aiming…

If we follow her careful gaze…

△ This is Max Factory’s planning division… Takeshita-sensei’s (@yatasith) desk!

 Is that… what I think it is?! (`・д´・;) *gulp*
 Let’s zoom in a little bit further…!


△ A figma Flyboy Zombie looking rather hyped up on a motorbike!

Hurry up and take the shot!! (°Д°;≡°Д°;)

It’s so much fun to make up little stories like using multiple figma figures! It really brings back the joy of playing with dolls from my youth… just with even more fun options! ♥︎

Now it seems she is crawling along searching for something…

△ An alternate back head part for her to look forward when prone is included!


 Huh…! Who’s that?!
△ A pistol… stockings… sneakers… it can only be her!!

She was out searching for Aoi Sakurai who is currently up for preorder at the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP! ★ 

△ Sinon decided to try and mimic Aoi’s pose!

If you’re looking for more about Aoi Sakurai, be sure to check out these blogs!

Another thing you have to note about figma Sinon is her outfit!! 

△ When you take the time to look, it’s actually a rather sexy outfit!

The two parts on the sides of thighs are made from soft parts making sure you can see the gaps of skin nicely!

Let me try to make some more action poses that show off Sinon as the best sniper in GGO!  

△ A joint is added underneath her chest allowing you to twist the body!
This works amazingly well for dynamic poses in mid movement!

As you can see above, she also comes with her favorite sniper rifle, Hecate II! (●´ω`●)ゞ

The pistol from earlier can be holstered at her hips while she uses the rifle! ♪

△ Even in 1/12th scale, the curves of her hips and bottom are beautiful!

The scarf around her neck can be attached and removed whenever you like, and also comes with joints at the base! 

Finally a quick look at how she looks from the back! ♥︎

△ Looking out at the night scenery…

The amount of possibilities that come with each and every figma figure is so incredible! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Be sure to recreate all your favorite situations!!

figma Sinon!

She will be on sale later this month!

If you preordered her, just be patient a little while longer!

Plus! A quick rerelease notice!
