So far, February has proven to be the month of Fire Emblem: Awakening (http://amzn NULL.to/VIT0Fn). Not only did the game itself get released in North America earlier this month, but now, a couple of figurines based on characters in the game have been announced for the discerning collector.
The first is a “Masked Marth” figma, which unfortunately, seems only to have been teased at this point, meaning we don’t know what it actually looks like yet.
On the other hand, a 1/8th scale model of the Dark Mage, Tharja seems to be a bit closer to completion.
It should be noted that, compared to the Marth figurine which is a Figma (an articulated figure with interchangeable bits and pieces), Tharja seems to be a “paint-it-yourself” model, for the more dedicated collector/hobbyist.
Marth and Tharja are just the latest Nintendo characters to be made into figurines. They will be joining Pit (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.co NULL.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00AQQGSM2/4k6l0g8-22/ref=nosim/) and Dark Pit (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.co NULL.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00AQQGSQS/4k6l0g8-22/ref=nosim/) from Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Link (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.co NULL.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/B008AGAXV2/4k6l0g8-22/ref=nosim/) from The Legend of Zelda.
