WAVE is going to release the nano! Minky Momo ( ミンキーモモ ) 1st PVC figure from the classic magical girl anime “Magical Princess Minky Momo” ( 魔法のプリンセス ミンキーモモ ). Will be released in November December 2009 . Around 90mm tall, 2,500 yen.
We don’t see many magical girl anime these days, but they were a big hit when I was a kid in 80’s. I couldn’t really remember for how long, I think the magical girl wave last at least for like 5-6 six years. Then the wave calmed down for 3-4 years until Sailor Moon came up in early 90’s. After Sailor Moon, I didn’t pay much attention to magical girl anime anymore.
I don’t really remember the Minky Momo anime, I only watched 2-3 episodes of it when I was a kid. Anyway, here comes Miky Momo, the first figure from the “nano!” series. This is a new figure series named “nano!” by WAVE. It seems like they’re going after classic magical girls. From their WF2009 [summer] list, there are 9 of them so far. You can see the complete(?) item list for WF2009 [summer] from WAVE here.
