Umi Sonoda figma promo

That’s right Love Live! Fans, Max Factory and Good Smile Company are bringing you a new figma. The cool, calm, collected 2nd year member and lyric writer of µ’s, Umi Sonoda, is getting her own figma. The Umi figma is made of ABS and PVC and was sculpted by Jun Yamaoka of Max Factory. Included with the figma are accessories for Umi such as her schoolbag, her quiver from the Archery club and a special treat for fans, the diet plan Umi made for Honoka and Hanayo in the second season of the Love Live! School idol project anime. What figma wouldn’t be complete without changeable expressions? Umi’s figma includes a smiling expression, an angry expression perfect for when she yells at Honoka or the other members of µ’s, and of course an embarrassed expression that showcases the adorable side of Umi’s personality. The Umi figma also comes with two glow sticks in her image color. Pictures showcasing Umi’s figma can be seen below.

Umi Sonoda’s figma stands at approximately 135mm in height (about 5.31 inches). The figma will release in January 2016 and you can pre-order the figma now at J-List for $59.50.

However if you pre-order directly from Good Smile Company’s online store you will receive a bonus blowing kiss expression for Umi. You can see how this expression looks on the figma below. The pre-order at Good Smile Company’s website will cost ¥5,800 or $46.51 plus shipping.

What does Umi think about becoming a figma? Well here’s what she said on the Good Smile Company website.

“I-I’m going to be a figma?! That sounds embarrassing!”

You can pre-order over at J-List or you can pre-order from the Good Smile Company store here. So what are you waiting for? Umi is calling you and she is the perfect addition to any Love Live! fan’s collection. Who wouldn’t want the 2nd best µ’s girl in their collection? (Maki is still the best girl.) Pre-order her now before she’s gone!
