Of all the many years of patient waiting ever since the release of the original PSP JRPG Fate/Extra, stretching from participating in multiple official polls (Where GSC asked of the ACG chara the collectors wanted, in scaled figure/Figma/Nendo form…), to myself subtly hinting and out-right asking the GSC staff (At events, on Twitter and other social mediums about the possibility of a Figma of my beloved foxy Miko), the Figma version of Fate/Extra’s Caster has finally been announced earlier this year.
Time-skipped several months later, she has finally been released to the public a few weeks back.
No doubt I got my hands on one, taking another fortnight before she finally reached my place, after having to rescue her from the Postal Dude (Once again the office refused to deliver my stuff to my place, you can read all about their irresponsible behaviour here…).
Caster, her true name being Tamamo no Mae, came packaged in a standard, simple design, as per the newer generation of Figma box art.
Clad in her colour theme, black and bluish purple (purplish blue?), the over all simple element with minimum logo and text truly brings out the main focus of the package, the transparent window layer that shows off part the main figure herself.

After years of prayers and waiting, the Figma version of my raison d’etre is finally ready for pre-order!
Sourced from a Chinese comrade’s Weibo post, I was sceptical at first, but quickly remembering my last exchange with another fellow foxy lover, as well as several passing rumours floating around… *Edit: More news sources, Tag Hobby and FigSoku.
No doubt the news of Figma Caster’s PO is the truth this time around.

Good Smile Company is one of the regulars of any conventions all around the world, AFA included.
Serving cutesy Nendo, cool Figma and beautiful scaled figures of
mainstream popular series to their fans, GSC is no doubt one of the most successful figure maker in the industry.
