TOY RELEASE HIGHLIGHT: May 2016
Happy Golden Week, minna-san! With much deserved rest for the toy manufacturers in Japan, we can surely look forward to the release of some great figures and other toys to be released this month. Here's our highlight on what's in store for May 2016!
METAL GEAR SOLID BISHOUJO 1/7 SCALE PRE-PAINTED FIGURE: SNIPER WOLF
While Metal Gear Solid brought forth many memorable moments, one of them undoubtedly has to be the final encounter with Sniper Wolf. Across a snowy field, the deadly sniper faced off with Solid Snake in a tense long range battle - a battle of bullets and ideologies, beautifully presented with Hideo Kojima's signature flair.
To honor this beloved character, Kotobukiya revisits Sniper Wolf with the help of master illustrator Shunya Yamashita in the newest entry to their Bishoujo "Pretty Girl" line - this 1/7th scale reimagining of the bittersweet character reveals a private moment of respite with undertones of her wild, untamed, and solitary persona.
Of course, Sniper Wolf would never be without her signature Heckler & Koch PSG1; she languidly holds the barrel with the sensitivity needed to deftly pull the trigger and looks straight ahead, eye contact leading her target's gaze towards her equally revealing uniform. A nice touch is the addition of the wolf pup peeking out of the broken crate - those who know the lore can agree with Otacon that it's easy to fall in love with such a woman, as beautiful as she is complex. Sigh~

NENDOROID MARTH: NEW MYSTERY OF THE EMBLEM EDITION
Manufacturer: Good Smile Company
In the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Fire Emblem series, Good Smile Company is releasing a Nendoroid of the prince of the Kingdom of Altea!
Marth from Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem ~Heroes of Light and Shadow~ includes an iron sword, a rapier, and the Exalted Falchion so you can have him wield whichever weapon you like! Of course, as with all of the Nendoroids, he's fully articulated to allow for an endless amount of poses to be made. Marth also includes two face parts including his standard smile expression and a shouting expression! Oh, did we mention that he also comes with a slashing effect particle for his weapons which may or may not be possible to use with weapons from other Nendoroids as well?!
Don't forget to collect him together with Nendoroid Shiida releasing in June 2016!

SHINING RESONANCE 1/7 SCALE PRE-PAINTED FIGURE: SONIA BLANCHE
From the popular game series Shining comes a 1/7th scale pre-painted figure of Sonia Blanche from Shining Resonance!
Known as the Lightning Princess, Sonia has a personality of a tomboy and definitely knows her way around her sword. Unfortunately (or fortunately) for Yuma, he have just accidentally walked in on Sonia as she is trying to pull her stockings on. That confused look on her face clearly gives away what will happen next. Yup, you guessed it - as swift as her ability to take action, she will be drawing her sword (not pictured) in a blank of an eye. Thankfully, this pose has been captured in place for us to adore in its full glory before we see a sword fly in the air!
Enjoy saving the Kingdom of Astoria while having the carefully crafted Lightning Princess by your side!
