Why hasnt gsc/max factory made touken ranbu figmas?Why hasnt gsc/max factory made touken ranbu figmas?

I want to start a collection of the nendoroids, but first I want to know if there will be figmas made, because then I will start there. I know there was a figFIX, and gsc already has the license, so why not make figmas?

It’s strange they haven’t given the character designs and of course the popularity of the Kantai Collection Figmas (same company). However if I had to give an answer I would say start with the Nendoroids as I don’t think they’re going to start the Figmas anytime soon... or at all.

I can't claim to know why these kinds of decisions are made, but if I had to guess, it's because OR/GSC is working on the assumption the smaller, cuter nendoroids would be more popular with the target demographic (women). There have only been a handful of figma released under the Orange Rouge label, and the Mikazuki FigFix doesn't seem like it sold well enough to incentivize adding more swordboys to the line.

There's also the question of complexity; all of OR's figma had fairly simple designs (some Durarara!! ones, Haikyuu, Osomatsu--all characters wearing modern clothes). I can't imagine that the intricate designs on the more popular swords (Mikazuki, for instance) would be easy to turn into fully-articulated figma.

I'll admit that swords with simpler designs, like Higekiri and Hizamaru, might make good figmas--but considering both of them have been announced as Nendoroid Dolls, I think that ship has sailed already. My guess is that Orange Rouge plans to leverage the popularity of nendoroid-size dolls to fill the fully articulated figure niche, rather than going out of its way to make Touken Ranbu figmas that may not end up selling as well.

I'm mystified too but honestly...kind of glad? Hear me out, please. (Er, read me out, I guess, but whatever.) Figmas have been kind of decreasing in quality while skyrocketing in price lately. We've been getting fewer faces, fewer accessories, etc., and mushier face sculpts (or that dreaded "sameface") while the figures now cost $50, $60, $70, some upwards of $80. And you know they'd milk the fanbase for all they're worth.

I mean, if they get whomever's doing the Table Museum figures-- what happened to those, anyway?-- then we'll be all good, but that's probably unlikely.

Still sitting here hoping for a Myth Cloth of Hachisuka though lolol. What, he looks like a Saint Seiya character?!

KiruKiru (Il y a 26 jours) #66006595no clue, and it annoys me to no end the only attem,pt we ever had was a figfix. wich i still dont see the point of that line since, isnt the appeal of figmas that you can pose them?
I still see it at every convention that one unsold mikazuki figfix. it keeps making me sad they never gave us a full fledged figma. Id definetly buy TR Figmas


Exactly! I think they gave up on the line because the figFIX didn’t sell well, but figFIX’s won’t sell because the line makes no sense and no one would buy it!

I agree with everything you said. The thing is, I don’t think figFIX have ever been popular, and they might have been discontinued. So it makes sense why he didn’t sell. It also was in his boring outfit, too. :) I wish they would take a chance, to see how it would sell. They’ve also done plenty of intricate designs, so I think they could handle shokudaikiri at least.

xD don't want to be the rude one here,but I'm kinda glad they don't. Nowadays you see Touken Ranbu/Fate figures anywhere you walk.

While I can't claim to know why they aren't making figmas, but I would agree with other users that they're probably trying to cater to their female audience with cute counterparts.

That being said, it does seem like OR is slowing down with the Tourabu figures as there weren't any new sword figures announced last WF. While the franchise is still very popular as a whole, long time players of the game have slowly began to move on.

Not sure, although afaik only Mikazuki was made in the Figfix line. If figma were made, I know I and a lot of other fans would buy them in a heartbeat, but unfortunately all we have right now are the nendos (and the scales), and while the nendos are cute and I love them, I would love a figma line. Like, a Tsurumaru figma? Spare no expense.
