The much awaited event since 2015 started has finally ended, and to our dismay, there has been a scarcity of Fairy Tail figures as it concluded.
Unlike last year’s Winter WonFes rich with Fairy Tail goodies, only a single figure has made it to the display this year, and to rub salt in the wound, it’s another Lucy Heartfilia swimsuit version from X-Plus. However it’s a different scale, a 1/4 from their Gigantic Series.
A variant of the prepainted figure also seems to taunt fans with the possibility of being exclusive. The poster shows Lucy in her white bikini which we have seen on the anime. Honestly, who would want the pink bikini version if we can have the canon one? Well maybe some hardcore collectors would.
I don’t hate Lucy, in fact she’s one of my waifus from the series, and it’s not really bad to have another figure of her. But considering the wide variety of characters to make, X-Plus could have opt to continue with the other characters on either their 1/8 swimsuit version or the much wanted battle version. I think fans would love to see more of the ladies on their fighting stance than a freaking giant version in swimsuit. I’m hoping they are still working on that and just happens to finish this figure in time for the event.
On the bright side, the new figure seems way better than previous version. The face looks more accurate to the anime, and this might be a good news for those who would want to make a shrine for Lucy (I do).
Lucy Heartfilia Gigantic Sersies Swimsuit version is slated for a May 2015 release with a price of ¥15000.
