As with the Cheerful Japan Miku, the Good Smile Company took another bold step forward and offered last summer’s Wonder Festival exclusives online for worldwide distribution. The first of the two figures I ordered from them is an alternate version of their Aegis Figma.
I love dinosaurs, ray guns, skeletons in astronaut suits, comic books where the main character is being run out of town by an angry mob, and robot girls. You can never have enough robot women around, especially the cute ones, which is why I had to buy the newest Aegis figure.
Every once in a while, something odd happens. I’m compelled to buy a toy that I know nothing about. My friends might tell you that it’s not that odd an occurrence, but I promise it is. The reasons vary. First, she’s a robot girl. If you’re familiar with my reviews, you’ve probably noticed I’m a sucker for robot girls. Second, just from the solicit pictures, you could tell this figure had a cuteness about her. Sure there are a lot of good looking toys out there, especially from Japan, but Aegis had something most toys lack. Somehow, Figma was able to imbue this figure’s looks with a sense of personality.
