figma modding is getting better and better, and they can be so good that's it can be hard to tell that they can be easily mistakened as official ones. Let's see some of the custom figmas that are mentioned on the official figma blog~
An original character made out of Shana and Miku, now looking really dark and hardcore~ ^^
figma Ultraman. My knowledge of Ultraman is rather poor so I don't know which one this is specifically...
Shiki Ryougi from Kara no Kyoukai, a light novel series from Type-Moon that got adapted into an anime movie series
Yomi Isayama (諌山黄泉) from anime and manga series Ga-rei.
Fate in True Sonic Form!
Found this Shana familiar? Yep it's yui_style's Shana that I mentioned a while ago.
Btw the meronpan there is not real; it's actually a look-alike toy/replica. Not only does it look like a real one, it feels like one and even smells like one too! o_O
Another great work by yui_style which I've also mentioned - figma Lacus Clyne.
Some of the more well known custom figma work are from 盗賊長門の人:
Taiga Aisaka from anime and light novel series Toradora! I personally find her face a tad bit off, but it's nevertheless a great work.
Kyon's sister from the Haruhi franchise. This one looks just like her in the anime o_o......
The SOS-dan girls in their RPG attire. With Haruhi being the exception (as she comes with a PS2 game), Thief Nagato and Mage Mikuru are both custom made according to how they look like in the game!
With so many great custom figmas out there, it can be quite hard for me to find my favourite (okay Fate in True Sonic form if I were to be biased ^^;). What will your favourite be, or is there another one out there that's yet to be mentioned? Share your thoughts!
