actSta, the bigger figma

Not to be mistaken though, Good Smile Company’s new 1/8 scale action figure series “actSta” is a seperate line of figures from Max Factory’s “figma” series. (Though in my gunpla mind I compare figmas to 1/144 and actSta to 1/100).

Anyway the first in the “actSta” series is Subaru Nakajima from the anime Nanoha StrikerS.

Picture from Mikatan blog. Check there for more pictures.

In the case of the name “actSta”, the “act” part comes from “action,actor,active” (emphasize the action and moveability aspect) and the “Sta” part comes from “statue” (emphasize on the quality, detail and beauty). The name portrays the aim of this action figure series.

    Thanks to the larger size, the detailing looks much better than the figma line.

    However, I really hope that they make figma equivalents of the actSta figures, I really rather not have Subaru tower above Nanoha, Signum and the rest -_-

    I like the way the joints are hidden…but it looks like it will have the same problems as the figma line, namely weight and balance with long hair…
