Since the quality of figma is going downhill, I told myself to give up on figma and focus on Nendoroid. But this Princess of the Crystal is so pretty!!! (@@. I like the “Mawaru Penguindrum” anime a lot and I really want to get this.

However the price is really not poor-man friendly. 4,572 yen is so ripoff IMO. I really don’t understand why she cost as much as the figma KOS-MOS ver. 4 which came with tons of accessories. I guess I’ll just skip her and wait for the Nendoroid instead. =P

——Description from Manufacturer——

Shall we initiate the survival strategy?

From the popular anime series, ‘Mawaru Penguin Drum’ comes a figma of the Princess of the Crystal – the mysterious personality that takes over Himari Takakura’s body whenever she puts on the penguin hat!

  • Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
  • A flexible plastic is used for specific areas, which allows proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
  • She comes with a standard expression, a condescending expression befitting of a princess and a shouting face to pose her in her signature pose.
  • The three penguins are included and can carry the Princess on their heads. They also comes with insecticide and a hand mirror as optional parts.
  • She comes with different arms and an extra skirt part, allowing you to pose her without her entire outfit.
  • A poseable figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.


“Listen, you lowlifes who will never amount to anything.”

“I have come from the destination of your fate.”

“Obtain the Penguin Drum.”

“Let’s initiate the Survival Strategy.”
