Strike Witches Figma! Finally! And now AGP too...

For discussion of all the other girl+mecha lines that have cropped up since Shinki began: Frame Arms: Girls, Megami Device, Armor Girls Project, Desktop Army, etc. This includes kinda-sortas like Daibadi's Polynian and things like Strike Witches and Fumikane's original Mecha Musume.

Well, she looks like a nice alternative to Figma Yoshika, but not good enough to justify me getting both sets of Strike Witches. :) They look nice but I think I'll wait for the painfully slow Figma releases instead as they're more affordable and seem to be better with the tiny details. Comparing the prototype Figma and AGP Sanya for example, the Figma version has a 'softer', more natural look to it and the AGP seems to look a bit more like a toy.

Still like the AGP accessories though. :)

well I think I much prefer the figma to the agp, but yet, that Shirley looks to good to pass up, maybe I will just have both versions of just her LOL

Yeah, I'm definitely not going to get the whole set. Yoshika was worth it thanks to the Shinden strikers giving her some significant differentiation from the figma, but most of the rest I'll probably just wait for figmas.

Well, anyone wanting Yoshika she's 2500yen on Mandarake if you don't mind a damaged box.

I don't want her, but it seems to me most things on mandrake are listed as damaged box, what does that even mean?

It means exactly that. The box is damaged. Sometimes just a banged corner, sometimes large tears.

well I wish they would specify cause I have high standards, I don't mind a banged corner but tears are to much and any water damage is un-acceptable

If it's really bad damage like a big tear they'll usually take a picture of it. They've mentioned box yellowing before, but I haven't seen any water damaged boxes before.

Paid for Sanya over the weekend, but waiting for Eila's release so I can use HLJ's Private Warehouse to mail them together.
