Putting on the gear seems like it'll be a pain in the ass. But other than that, I'm sold.

$240 is a reasonable price considering the detail and the accessories. The Ultimate Madoka was about $100 cheaper, and it's just a fixed posed figure.

I may have to grab this one.

I liked the fixed posed figures myself. I think all the joins are ugly on movable figures, but it seems as though most of them are hidden in this. Would mind a fixed posed figure of her with the scarf over her mouth with the SC cloak.

It's definitely in the usual ballpark for RAH, although toward the higher end.

They are really well done! Do they warrant that price tag... Hmm debatable.

I pre-ordered the figma already but dang this looks cool. I like figures (dolls?) with actual fabric clothes. I have a Detective Conan doll that is dressed like Sherlock Holmes with a Deerstalker hat and pipe over his normal clothes. It's not to the scale of this however.

Hmmm, I've pre-ordered the Eren figma already & that's about all I can afford. Maybe one day I can get this...

Goodness gracious. As impressive as it is, I wouldn't pay more than $200 for that thing. You'd have to be an awfully big fan to buy this.

Very nice. If I had extra money I'd get it.

As expected from Medicom Toy's other Real Action Hero figures. Though I would really want this, I'd rather have the Real Action Hero Link not just do to the fact that I'm a bigger Legend of Zelda fan but the fact that it's $100 cheaper but it's still outrageously expensive then.

Back on topic, preorder your Real Action Hero Mikasa Ackerman figure today!

Off topic, out of curiosity, was Madoka Magica the hot thing like Attack on Titan when it came out.

Not really. While it is very popular, Attack on Titan is a lot more appealing to a western audience than Madoka is. You can tell by looking at how they compare in manga sales, it's not even close.

Madoka is not based on manga. Besides, what does western audience have to do with that?

Not as much. SnK appeals to normalfags and already had HUGE fanbase before anime started, so it easily escalated. Also, SnK was airing longer so it was easier to build up more hype. Meanwhile Madoka doesn't have this much of a mainstream appeal so while it was a massive hit among otaku, it didn't shake the Japan.

Okay, thanks. Sorry, just the abundance of Attack on Titan "articles" is driving me nuts and Madoka Magica was first "hot new thing" that game to mind.

Otherwise, yeah, sticking with Figmas. Hmm, I wonder, can faces and heads of figures be put on other figures? Who needs Samus Aran when we have Samus Eren. A ha ha ha...
