Well, I won Figurarts Sheryl for US$30 ( with shipping) on Ebay. I was surprised to be the only one who bid.

I think these Figurarts look good and hope they look better in person. Planning to buy Ranka to complete the set. Amiami is selling them for a similar price.

They are really nice figures. I got the Ranka one just so i could have a complete set but I cant fit into my display :( Looking forward to the black bunny version!

Yesterday: Hmm, how about a Figuarts Sheryl for my Ex-Gear Alto?

Today: Whoaaaa! VF-1 Super parts set reissue is so near!

Decisions decisions... :D

The Figuarts Zero Sheryl & Ranka are much too big next to Ex Gear Alto.

Last year's trading figures are very close in scale, however. :)

Thanks for comparison Lolicon!

Trading figures suffer from lack of design quality IMO...

I have those too. When you compare the quality of the sculpt to Alto, they're pretty much on par.

While the girls look a little tall here, if you load up Alto in his EX Gear, they look good as a group.

You see, I'm a guy of simple tastes. I enjoy dynamite, and gunpowder, and trading figures. And you know the thing that they have in common? They're cheap.

You know, that trading figure Ranka is actually one of my favorite sculpts. I think it looks better than the recent Figuarts Zero Ranka; better pose and representation of the character. Not too shabby for only 800 yen.

I'm no stranger to Ranka figures. :)

Preordered the Basara Sheryl, of course. I'll wait till I see more pics of the nurse versions before I commit to those. Though I've been wanting Nurse Sheryl for some time now...

So for the next set of SQ figures by Banpresto it's...

1. Sheryl as Basara

2. Mylene as Nijo Iro Kuma Kuma Ranka

3. Ranka as Flower Girl

4. Minmay as Orleans Sheryl

...pretty excited to see how the last two turn out.

Grace would rock as Sivil, Akiko, or even Dr. Chiba. :)

So.....heard from a source that will go unnamed that, while not rare, the basara-Sheryl figure has the lowest production run of any of these premium UFO catcher figures to date, so get your preorders in early (releases in Nov) just to be safe.

I don't know man.. i'm getting tired of collecting them.. when I get a pair.. s.o.b. come out with a black or special version that's ridiculously expensive.. I guess I'm not that much of a hard core mac F fan.. sticking back to old school.

I've bought the Figuart Zero Sheryl and Ranka at around US$85 and sold them unopened when I knew the 1Kuji ones were coming. I just got the 1Kuji C+D prizes at US$153.

I always like the 1Kuji scripts better.

They're usually in the 1/7-1/8 scale range. They're not exactly 1/8 because they 1kuji Sheryl and Ranka figures are taller then the 1/8 scale figures made by Megahouse. Or maybe Megahouse's scales are off. Who knows? These aren't real people. :)

In Mandarakae, the new kujis A and B cost 5 digits in yen. Sheryl goes 12-15k and Ranka goes around 10k. The C and D (without wings) are cheaper with Sheryl and Ranka going for 7-8k yen and 5-6k yen respectively.
