It's been years since Athrun found his closure in Gundam Seed Destiny. However, he still inspires fans' imaginations with his authentic personality and his sometimes warm, sometimes dangerous relationships with the other characters.
Now he puts on his uniform once again to lead the drama into your display case. By turning his palms up and down, the collector can pose him as he salutes, or make him reach out to somebody.
Since he is a mechanic, he expresses himself through his creations. The package comes with 2 Haros, place them around Athrun to enrich his display.

Narukami Yu puts on his glasses and faces off with the Shadows in the TV world. The world belongs to the Persona cast this year. First there was the anime, then the Persona 4: The Golden RPG and later the fighting game Mayonaka Arena, Narukami is awfully busy.
But that doesn't stop him from paying a visit to the GEM Studios. The character designer Shigenori Soejima is fully behind the figure designing team. From the facial features to Narukami's body shape, everything is sculpted loyally according to the character sketches.
And little details, such as the line of stitches that runs along the jacket is painted on in exactly the same shades. So no matter how closely you look at him, he is flawlessly cool, befitting the men that goes to the GEM series.
Narukami Yuu is going to step into your display case this November:

Dantalian is the name of the demon that guards knowledge. And the black clad Yomihime Dalian is the lock bearer to its library. Mysterious, atmospheric and very unique, Dantalian no Shoka shows you that there are alternate worlds in books. And that some girls can be deadly mean and you love her for that.
The doll-like Dalian is a palette of monotones. Her figure maker Abe Hirotaka shows off the silkiness of her hair and the woollen texture of her dress through the different shades of black. The stark colours highlight the redness of her eyes, showing off its glassy luminescence.
The reading princess comes this October:

Saber Lily sheds her battle dress and put on her bikini. True to the word lily in her name, her bikini is a pristine white. The image of her running along the beach caused quite a stir when Type Moon published it in 2011. The famed figure maker Hiroshi is in charge of the creation of this Beach Queen.
He pumps dynamism into the figure by freezing her in a mid-sprint. Her figure is balanced carefully on the tip of her toes. She looks like she can't wait to join the other girls in their beach games. Like all figures in the Beach Queens series, she has an H-shaped joint in her neck. Saber rarely smiles so openly, tilt her head from side to side to admire the smile.
Saber Lily will reach you in December:
|Beach Queens - Fate/unlimited codes : Saber Lily||JPN||US$ 42.79|

She is the sleepless ghost that wanders the night, the one who won't forgive the forces that twist the world. Ryogi Shiki is the combination of traditional elegance and samurai deadliness. Those sharp eyes spot an object's weakness and her katana can slash through it before her victim can scream.
The figure creator Nanashi based Shiki on the illustration on the second volume of the Garan no Dou arc. Her flowing sleeves hint at her smooth movements, the silken sheen on her kimono show that she is a descendent of an old and powerful family, and the blush on her face shows that she is still a very young girl with a vulnerable side, no matter what destiny has in store for her.
To celebrate the Type Moon 10th Anniversary, Shiki is returning this November:

When darkness falls, the dark knight rises. To celebrate the theatre release of the third instalment in the Batman movies, Play-Arts creates a new series of action figures. He is obviously even bulkier and more powerfully built in this one. Put the batarang, the guns and all the gun accessories on him and pit him against evil.
Catwoman is back again to join Batman. Sleek and sneaky, her figure stays true to her element. Her slender shape allows her to get into anywhere, and the newly designed joints give collectors the chance put her into all sorts of sexy and dangerous poses. Put the whip into her hands to add that extra edge to her.
Both hero and femme fatale are coming in November:

The drill is sharper than ever. Gurren Lagann's legend carries on. And by putting new armour on the mecha, Kotobukiya dispatches him to new missions. The clear parts embedded to the body give it a more powerful look. Besides the silver drills, the developers now pack him with three clear green drills.
Assemble them to Lagann's limbs and shine a light on him to display the drill break. Assemble the Gurren Wing and the Mechanical Base Flying 3 to the mecha so he can display gymnastic moves in the air. The joints are flexible, and the Gurren is expressive, so it's not just action, you can do drama scenes with him.
