Good Smile Company is going to release the actsta Subaru Nakajima ( スバル・ナカジマ ) 1/8 action figure from the anime series “Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Strikers” ( 魔法少女リリカルなのはStrikerS ). Will be released in November 2009, around 190mm tall, 9,333 yen.

This is the new action figure from GSC that I talked about earlier. As the description from GSC said, this Subaru Nakajima action figure was originally from Liquid Stone and then GSC took it and add this and add that and now it becomes GSC’s “actsta”. I put the original GK from Liquid Stone at the bottom of this page. You can compare it with the GSC actsta and you will see GSC really did a lot of changes.

As for other characters for actsta series in the future. Most people in the BBS said it’s gonna be Vita, Nanoha, and Fate since that’s what Liquid Stone have right now. Unless GSC sculpture their own ones or they get the approval from ZUN for the Touhou series, otherwise they will stick with the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Strikers figures.

She is a lot cheaper than I thought. Since the full size action figure from CM’s easily cost over 11,000 yen, I expected this one from GSC should be around that price too but I was wrong. She is only 9,333 yen, a bit more affortable then the CM’s but still really expensive for me.

——Description from Manufacturer——

The beginning of a new age of action figures – ‘actsta’. Stand by, ready!

From the tremendously popular anime series Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, Subaru Nakajima is here as the first figure to join the new set of action figures called ‘actsta’.

Based off a garage kit designed by Liquid Stone, the sculpting and color have been polished to perfection, and she is capable of taking an uncountable number of poses including many of her “Shooting Arts” hand-to-hand combat techniques.

The joint areas look more natural than ever before, adding even more quality to the figure. Not to mention that the face parts, arm parts and shoes can all be exchanged with additional parts, giving even more variability to Subaru’s poses.

What is actsta?

actsta is a new action figure series brought to you from Good Smile Company, designed to focus on both mobility and superior sculpting.

  • act – able to actively move around, and act out various scenes.
  • sta – a statue that maintains a high quality image.

Combining these two ideas, Good Smile Company is aiming for an all new action figure series. Be sure to give them a try with your own two hands!
