YES! Unfortunately, my self-imposed figure purchasing rules make it so that I can only get one from each series, so, sorry, but I'm going to have to pass on you Saber, and Utaha, and Eriri. I still love you guys, but you can't match my best girls.

Wait, so they're making figures of Rin and Eriri in a kimono? Hmm...if so...I don't know if I should get both, or just Rin...

If the choice is between anything and Rin, that answer is always Rin. Laughing Wink

Will most likely try and get all three saekano figures, as for the Fate ones, I may just stick with Rin.

No Sakura? Maybe after the Heaven's Feel movie she'll get one.

If those designs are the actual descriptions and the sculptor/manufacturer doesn't botch their job, I'm really enticed to get the entire set. My wallet won't be happy though...

The kimono look gorgeous, and the Madoka Magica figurines that were already were also drool-worthy, but I'm not really inclined to shell out big bucks for a figurine which is just a pretty kimono with a popular anime character's head on it.

If I buy a figurine, I want it to represent the character that I love from the anime/manga/game. I have spent thousands on gorgeous figurines, and just about all of them have a pose/outfit that are like 3D snapshots of the character as they appeared in the anime/manga/game.

Although I did give in for miko Homura because I couldn't resist that smile (http://myfigurecollection.net/item/236250)

I was going to lie, and say that if I were to only get one, it'd be Eriri. But, you're right. And, my lie would've been seen through quite easily.

Will definitely get Rin, Eriri may be purchased if I have the cash to spare.

I can understand that. I don't think I own any figures that could be considered ones in "alternate costumes".

But, if they do model the figures after these images, I can't say no to Rin. Especially with that facial expression! Laughing

Because there has been a trend of LN or their manga-versions getting licensed here in the past few years, I think that would be appropriate for Saekano.

^The Saekano manga has already been licensed by YenPress. Nothing has been said about the LNs, but we're definitely getting the manga.
