Chara-ani is going to release the Himeji Mizuki & Summoned Beast set ( 姫路瑞希と召喚獣セット ) 1/8 PVC figure set from the light novel/manga/anime “Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu” ( バカとテストと召喚獣 ). Will be released in August 2010. Himeji Mizuki around 200mm tall, Summoned Beast around 70mm tall, 6,648 yen.
For those who who per-order the Himeji Mizuki & Summoned Beast set by Penguin Parade, you might want to think it twice. Personally I think the Both Himeji and the Summoned Beast looks in this Chara-ani set looks so much better than the Penguin Parade set. And they’re 1,152 yen cheaper!
To be fair, this is just their prototype. We all know that the quality of the final products by Chara-ani/Toy’s works are not really that great. On the order hand, Penguin Parade is a new company and the quality of their only figure in the market is pretty good. But I can’t really trust their quality yet. You never know if they will screw up or not next time.
So if you ask me which one to get (of coz it’s better if you can afford both =P ), I’ll still say this Chara-ani set. I can’t really trust someone who can’t even make their prototype nice. =P
