Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

It’s really started to get cold recently… to the point that I’ve started using earmuffs! But as I sit and grumble about the cold… I noticed some of the Max Factory staff seemed to be very giddy playing with some figmas!

These two are Max Factory’s newest members who joined the planning team last year – Akane Eiseihei and IG Sakai! They seemed to be having fun, so I decided to join them during their lunch break and ask a few questions!

▼(。・ω・)ノ ”Do you two always eat lunch together here?”

Akane: Nah, we just decided we needed to discuss various things related to the displays at WonFes… not much time left now!

IG: We were the planners for the WonFes exclusive products this time around!

Akane was responsible for the planning of figma Snow Miku, and IG Sakai was responsible for figma Armin Arlert!

The full sample reviews for these two products can be found on yesterday’s figma blog update! The last photo was rather… surprising! (゚A゚;)

▼(。・ω・)ノ “How many WonFes Events have you been to?”

IG: Even before I joined Max Factory I attended as a dealer… so quite a few in my case!

Akane: I’ve also been quite a few times myself! I’m going to helping out at the goods section for most of the morning, but I’ll definitely be taking a look around for myself in the afternoon!

IG: I want to go take a look around for myself too… but I’m the exhibition leader… I don’t think I’ll get the chance.

Akane: … You’re leader together with GSC’s Yassan! You should have some time!

IG: I- I know… but… I put together some of the exhibition diorama’s and I want to watch over them! (`・ω・´)

– Sneak Peek at WF Diorama –

Fans will know where this is from! You definitely have something to look forward to at WonFes!! ((o(´∀`)o))

IG: Along with the above there is also a Attack on Titan diorama too! I can’t show it right now… but it’s something to look forward to! ♪

▼(。・ω・)ノ “figma Snow Miku and figma Armin Arlert… what makes them special?”

Akane: As mentioned previously on Kahotan Blog the main points are:

· Her worried eyebrows are adorable! ☆
· New joints allow for amazing poses! ☆
· A cute, removable scarf and mittens are included! ☆

Those three points are what I think makes her special! ♡
She’ll be on display at WonFes to take a look at before purchasing!

IG: I think my best part about figma Armin Arlert are his expressions. Particularly the worried expression – being able to recreate this epic scene is just amazing!

IG: Also… while this applies to all the characters in the Attack on Titan figma series… the detail on the 3D maneuvering equipment is fantastic! When you get your’s, be sure to take a look all around and really enjoy every possible angle of him… like this! っ(`・ω・´)

Uwaa… (;´∀`) IG’s love for the series really does show…!

How does Akane stay so calm drinking juice as IG Sakai bounces around beside her!!? Perhaps this is just an everyday occurrence and she’s simply used to it now… ( -ノェ-)

IG: By the way, the wire hooks included to recreate the maneuvering gear were my idea! They’re made to be compatible with things like the Nendoroid More Clips…. which means you can do things like this! (`・ω・´)

*fiddle* *fiddle*

IG: There we go! I definitely recommend grabbing them for poses like this!

Nendoroid More Clip: Orange are scheduled to be on sale at WonFes again this year! Note that the clips above are different however – they are the GSC Online exclusive Nendoroid More Clip 1.5: Clear Orange! (These won’t be on sale at WonFes!)

Be sure to take a look if you’re interested! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
Other WonFes product information can be found here: http://whl4u.jp/en/

Akane: Oh yeah! Don’t forget to grab your free downloadable Titan mask (human size) from the GSC website! It was released in commemoration of figma Mikasa being released!

You can download the mask here: http://bit.ly/1lrQuCR (GSC Site)

IG: It’s really fun becoming a Titan. I highly recommend it! If you wear it you really do become a Titan to the figmas… so it’s perfect! Be sure to send your photos as a Titan with your figmas to the Figma Blog: figmablog@maxfactory.jp! We’ll be introducing everyone’s photos on the blog at a later stage!

– IG Titan & Armin –

Akane: We’ll be waiting!! (o・ω・o)
