Mikatan, the almost invisible hand of GSC on the interwebs, just previewed the 1/8 scale figure of the bubbly, frills-loving savior of tragic Puella Magi, Kaname Madoka. As a HUUUUUGE fan of Madoka, this is simply without question my most anticipated figure of 2011 and based on the preview shots, she’s every bit worth the hype. The amount of detailing on her is just mindblowing, as shown on her intricate laces and dress patterns. The frills are simply gorgeous and the facial sculpt is just perfect and exactly the way how it was portrayed in the original illustration. Of course, our lead heroine also comes with her trusty evil scheming entropy expert, the emotionless familiar, Kyubey. He can also be adjusted to different positions on Madoka. Surprisingly, Madoka’s “plant bow” (I don’t know what else to call it) is also included, further sweetening the deal. As with most GSC figures, Madoka doesn’t figure to come cheap but based on the delicious preview shots, she’s bound to be worth every penny you spend on her. Pre-orders will open tomorrow.
