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.

This is insane. They're going beyond the 501st for the AGP Witches, and last I checked AGP Yoshika hasn't been released yet!

Also, that Lynnette looks to be vastly inferior to the figma in my opinion.
Your image is broken (rehost it, don't just hotlink it). But if it's this magazine spread as I suspect, you're mistaking figures from other lines for AGPs. The Junko is a Volks scale figure, while the Lynette is a FuRyu prize figure. The AGPs are just the ones in the upper-half of the spread.

Looks like Yoshika is out in the wild now: http://nov.2chan.net/y/res/2572877.htm [nsfw ads, most likely]

I've uploaded all the photos to an imgur album, as the futaba thread won't last long.

For those who were worried about scale compared to the figmas, looks like we're safe:

Left-to-right: Mobip - AGP - figma

Also, looks like moeyo[nsfw] got the chance to take some photos of a display of the AGP prototypes of the rest of the 501st that showed up in the magazine scans the other day.

I prefer AGPs over figma, but Mobips suck.

Well, it's back to your own preferences. Each product have it's own plus & minus:
Figma - the most famous figure series, the pioneer before Mobip & AGP
Mobip - just a copycat of Figma, but with unique display base stand
AGP - the underdog, currently is crawling up to the popularity spot

Oh, did i mentioned unique display base stand from Mobip? FYI, the Strike Witches & Little Buster Mobip are kinda cool, but the K-On! Mobips are pieces of crap (although it's easier to obtain than the Figmas).

You didn't explain anything at all about the figures :P

figma: Awesome quality sculpt, awesome paintjob, average articulation, moderate accessories.
Mobip: Average quality sculpt, average paintjob, average articulation but with low quality material, moderate accessories.
AGP: Good quality sculpt, average paintjob, awesome articulation, few accessories.

I speak from experience. I have tons of figma, 2 Mobip, and 4 AGP (the COMPOSITE Haruhi girls count as AGP now).

Actually, K-On Mobip have slightly-lower-than-average quality sculpt.

Now that you mention it, this leave AGP versus Figma :D

You're too spoiled by figma. Mobips are average, there's stuff much worse.
And you bet that AGP came to rival figma. And as always it's to our advantage.
