I'm not @Saburowith his outstanding pics, however I managed to open and took pics of these lovely ladies from Frontier.. :wub:

Note that I bought two of the same colours and used the Tamashii Stage Act 5 stands.

Edit: Didn't upload the pics on the first post.

Anyone want a Nendoroid Petit Heroine set (complete)?

Available as of now. ^_^

And thanks to borgified's gracious heads-up (and Mandarake's prompt service), they're here already!

The secret* figure of the set is an Ishtar in civilian garb.  ^_^

These two particular songstress figures are the also the ones that grace my valk shelf.  I've had the Ranka for years now, but only recently acquired the Sheryl.

I just wasn't a fan of the blue variant Sheryl figure of this type.  I just couldn't see it going with either variant of the Ranka.

As for the Ranka, I like both the variant colors, but the red one is just so much more vibrant and just fits with the default Sheryl so well.  Plus, the red variant lacks the winky eye, which I think somewhat mars the default color variant.

I just have them on their default stands.  Amazingly, Ranka hasn't ever started to lean.  

I wish there was a red costume variant like that for the Dollfie Dream.

Happy to be of serve to you @tekering.

@GabrielV: Two minds to think alike.. 

As for the Sprits Kuji Sheryl (to be released in two weeks for both versions), I'm leaning more towards on the Blue variant (unless the details are more pronounced on the red version due to the fact that I can't really see it too well).

There are 3 versions. I'm hoping to get them all, but as of now, they seem quite pricey.

They retail (well, "retail") for ~5600 yen, so they'll probably remain fairly pricey. I sure hope not, though.

I also heard of only two variants, the red and blue. What's the third variant?

I did more digging and retails for 5.8k yen.

Hopefully this will help.. Use Google translate if needed.

Edit: Bottom right is the Double Chance campaign version and bottom left is without the cape.  I'm going to stick with the blue version.

Anyone going to Akihabara and trying your luck there?  :lol: 

Here are the zoomed pics. It doesn't look too bad, however the nose need some redefining on the actual sculpt.

I'll be in Akihabara sometime early next year, but who wants to wait that long? Not like you'll get them much cheaper than what you'll find on Mandarake, game prize and Ichiban figures alike. They'll start off moderately pricey then drop off over time.

I picked up all the Figuarts Zero variants, but for their movie outfits I prefer the Ichiban Kuji releases.

Why is the double chance variant more expensive? I'm not seeing any difference between the two figures.

Based on the Google translate of the website:

※「A賞 10th アニバーサリー Crimson Scarlet Queen シェリル・ノーム フィギュア」と同一の賞品となります。 ※ It becomes the same prize as "A prize 10th anniversary Crimson Scarlet Queen Sheryl Nome figure".

Basically a lucky draw version (and possibly more if you sell it). ;)
 
Edit: Found a video that has the Two Variants on YouTube in which was posted on the 10th of this month.

So what are the rules/procedure for entering into the draw for the 10 "Variant D" figures? Crane game figures I can understand, it's basically the same as any other crane/claw game, you put in money to get one opportunity to operate the claw. I imagine those probably cost 100-2000 yen per claw, depending on the quality/scarcity of the item within. Ichiban Kuji lottery games, from what I remember folks saying here, you buy a ticket from a dedicated salesman and get it scanned right then and there to determine if you win anything. The prizes are there at the... arcade? store?

How does this figure work in particular? I'm guessing A/B/C are the same as the above Ichiban Kuji system (with each ticket costing 5800 yen and guaranteeing you get one of the three), but D seems like a national lotto-type thing? Do you buy an entry ticket at a discounted price (or maybe it comes free as part of a promotion when buying select items?) for a chance to get one of the 10 D-prize figures?

As we know from Loopaza Mega Store scans posted on the HMR thread of the VF-4, the Spirits Kuji Sheryl is 20cm tall (approx. 8 inches) and anyone has space in their detolf/display cabinet for it? :D

I'm going to upload the actual post from their FB page.

My apologies if this was mentioned before as I didn't see during my quick sifts through this thread.

Has anyone have the full set of the Banspesto Chibi-kun Walkure singers on hand (or clear pics of them together on a product shot)? ^_^

I don't know if this will suffice?

@kajnrig: Thanks for the reply back..

Hmm... I have the Movie 31f to arrive next week via Amazon Japan (barring if and when the Canada Post Strike hits YVR as its slowly creeping across Canada as it already hit my secondary home of YYZ as of yesterday) and can't decide if I want the larger or smaller sized Kaname/Freyja to go with it when displayed with my SQ Regular Suit Mirage. :unsure:

Edit: Corrected as of previous post.

Been looking through YouTube in regards to Macross Banpresto figures and no wonder why the EXQ Ranka looks better than Sheryl (they still got to fix that face sculpt of her)..

Edit: Found another EXQ unboxing of Ranka and Sheryl.
