Uwaaah, do want!
Does anyone know if they ebay seller is legit? He's coming from Hong Kong, and they are known to have a lot of bootlegs there.
Wow though. That looks like a nice figure. I hope they come out with more characters soon!

Glad to see there's finally an Umi figure, but Banpresto's figures are extremely low quality, even for their cheap prices, and I'm of the believe that it's better to have one high-quality figure that 100+ horrible ones. I'm going to wait until a GoodSmile, Alter, Max Factory, etc. figure is announced (preferably of Beato) before considering preordering/buying/etc.^^;

That looks like a good figurine. Although I'm waiting for one of the good makers. You think there'll be a figma for Umineko?

Usually there's only figmas for really popular series (Haruhi, Lucky Star, Nanoha, etc.) Then again, there have been CANAAN figmas announced, so who knows^^;

For some reason, I really can't see any of the big name figure companies making Umineko figures. As adorable as a complete collection of the Seven Stakes in Nendoroid form would be, I don't think Umineko is just that popular enough to get anything more than C-tier figures like that Jessica one.

Even with Higurashi's popularity, there weren't much figures with high quality (besides garage kits)...the only noteworthy ones are the 2 new ones from wave, and the collect700 series from GSC. Doesn't seem like the big comapnies wanted to jump on the franchise...

I have the max factory Higurashi figures set. They;re cute, along with the Higurashi daybreak figures set. They're so cute. I ope they make Umineko figures in the same style.

I have have the original game-based figures... uhm.. they aren't too great.. ^^;

The figures based off of Ryukishi's original visual novel art, it seems.

I believe so.
Unless a different company bought them and started manufacturing them before the figures were discontinued.

Yeah, they were made by Max Factory. I'm pretty sure Rias made a mistake, since to my knowledge GSC has never sculpted a Higurashi figure, and the figures I linked were the first thing to come up when I Googled "Higurashi Collect 700". Feel free to chew me out if I'm wrong though, Rias.

Doesn't carry the same glow or workmanship as regular scaled figurines.

I kind of found that out the hard way...



Now this is something I would definitely get... Nothing beats Maria bedsheets! I can sleep on top of Maria everyday. XD
Though it is kind of expensive. $100 or so for the limited edition Umineko DVD that it is bundled with.

So..... does this mean that there's gonna be 13 bedsheets O_O (one for each DVD?)

Who'd be on the other 12 then? Let's see:
Spoiler for not-yet-anime-characters:


Jessica, Shannon, and mystery-OP-girl sheets are very likely So are the Stakes, but I don't think there'd be 7 seperate ones, and I don't think they could all fit onto one O_o
