Hobby Japan (manufactured by Max Factory) is going to release the figma archetype_next:she action figure, the foundation of all new female figmas. Bundled with the book “Max Factory Complete Works” ( マックスファクトリー全仕事 ) (A4 size). Will be released on December 20, 2013, 4,743 yen.

By looking at the pictures alone, beside the wrist joints and the body proportions, I can’t really tell the differences between this new one and the old one.

I couldn’t find the images now, but I can recall that I saw the side by side comparison images of the old one and this new one. In those images, the new one is a lot more flexible and can make some more complicated poses. There should be some more differences but I really can’t remember. I’ll post those images if I can still find them.
