Do model kits count as figures?

I don't see why they wouldn't, gundam models are basically action figures that you build, the later ones anyway.

I bought the MIkasa at Animazement, and I'm going to say right now that the 3D Maneuver Gear needs to be handled with the utmost care. The cords are really flimsy and one of them broke with barely moving it. Like, the plastic bit at the end straight-up snapped. As is the case with too many Figmas, the core figures are great, but the stands and accessories could use a little work. I still love it, but it has design issues that have been plaguing the series for a while.

Insofar, I must say I enjoy the SH Figuarts series a bit more. While perhaps they have less license diversity, the builds, articulation points, and accessories impress me slightly more. My Sailor Moon is one of my favorite anime figurines in my decade of collecting. Also, they have a freaking Sadako action figure coming out.

Are you sure you attached the 3D pack right? It's supposed to be at the waist, below the coat hem, like this. I know that's a production model shot, but did they really alter it in the final product that much?

Yeah, the 3D gear is supposed to go in the lower peg hole on the back.
The top one is meant for the stand.

Same. My tokusatsu figuarts are all screaming to be played with.

Plastic kits and PVCs all count so long as you get laughs. Whoops about the peg thing, my screwup.

I'm probably sure they do. regardless they look interesting. luckily it was made by i pretty good company. if it was anyone else, ya better believe they would have a fanservice option for mikasa.

So far a lot of fun entries. I would love to see more "shout outs" in the column for readers to post their figures. I'm still not quite sure how many pictures I can post, so..... here's my official entry... Gohan's Date With Madoka

And here are a few pictures for giggles. Moderators, I apologize if I shouldn't post more than one picture. Please feel free to delete, reprimand me, etc. This is all done in good fun. Thank you again for the opportunity to see other Astro Toy fans post their pictures.
