I’m not big on collecting figures because I’m poor and don’t have enough living space for it as it is. But there are two that stoke my womanly fires, two shining males in a world of plastic boobs and upskirts.
Kamina, from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, is one of my all-time favorite anime characters, and probably the first one I’ve both inwardly and outwardly fangirled since I was a teenager. I’ll admit it: I love him. I can’t explain why, but it should be fairly obvious to anyone who’s seen him in action: he embodies everything a fiery-hearted anime character should be!
This figure is mad rare and mad expensive. You can see why. It speaks quality: screams it at you!
Evidently there was also a very rare limited edition that came with Boota.
Knowing this makes me extremely happy, and yet extremely sad that I will never own it.
Another from the same series is coming up: Viral, impossible not to love, even with those teeth.
A prototype of this is out, and only looks to get better. This is good. This is very good. I like Yoko’s design as much as the next person, but it’s about time the men to shine. Take it from me and my fellow man-loving figurine-lover.
