Armor Girls Project: Infinite Stratos (& Mobile Suit Girls)

For discussion of all the other girl+mecha lines that have cropped up since Shinki began: Frame Arms: Girls, Megami Device, Armor Girls Project, Desktop Army, etc. This includes kinda-sortas like Daibadi's Polynian and things like Strike Witches and Fumikane's original Mecha Musume.

Gotta preorder and spread the word if we're ever to see the Gundem Girls.

Hm. It is possible that it just passed me by when I was skimming the links since my Japanese skills wane when tired, but did anyone catch the scale on Cecilia?

I'm sorely tempted, but I'm kinda wondering whether she'll be 'the right size' next to my other girls...

EDIT: Well, I went off and checked the Bandai Tamashii site again. It lists '200 mm' from top to bottom. A standard tall shinki (Strarf Raviena posed for measurement) is around 150mm unarmoured... so it sounds to me like Cecilia will be just a mite bigger than them. Her equipment should add some height, but I'm not sure it would account for a full 5cm of difference. Ach, I might just spring for it anyways. Clearly, I'm an absolute sucker for this whole mecha-musume thing. I don't know why I haven't watched IS yet, but this line of figures will probably make me go and do it already.

If it's so, i'm suspecting Ichika's big sis & Yamada Maya... Or maybe Nohotoke Honne too, or Houki's big sis...

Looking at the pictures on tamashii.jp, if you scale the unarmoured picture to the fully-armoured one, it looks like she's about 12-14cm tall, depending on whether the height specified means head height, or includes all the floaty bits. Head height seems more likely, so I'd guess about 14cm. She'll be pretty imposing all armoured up, but the base figure should fit in nicely with shinkis/figmas/etc.

Judging by the joints, I believe these figures to be made in the molds of the COMPOSITE Haruhi figures, which are 1/12.

...I'd say something, but my first Figma was Black Rock Shooter.
That, and I don't really care that much. :P

You'd think it'd just be minor characters, but no, they've actually done more important characters and made them exclusive... there's no logic behind what they choose to make exclusive. =\

How can someone survive not being exposed to hentai/ecchi stuff? XD

For me it was probably this, even though I had no idea what it was:
