K-On! is a great series from Kyoto Animation (Lucky Star, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) that started in 2009 with a 14 episode series, got a 26 episode second season in 2010, and will be getting a theatrical movie next year. Suffice to say, K-On in enormously popular and this year saw the release of Max Factory’s K-On Figma.
Figmas, of course, are highly articulated action figures based on popular series. Inside the box is a cardboard cover for the di.stage (not include as it comes with a regular hexagonal stand all Figma come with) that’s made to look like the school’s wooden floor.
Tsumugi Kotobuki is the wealthy, polite keyboard player of the group. Her figure has articulation in all major parts and can pull of almost any pose you can think of. Unlike the previous Lucky Star Figma, the hands on the K-On Figma are easy to change as they’re just a regular long peg and not a ball jointed peg.
Head changing is easy. She comes with a smiling face, a blushing “aww” face, and a closed eyes happy face.
Tsumugi comes with her keyboard (a Korg Triton Extreme with 76 keys), although the name “Korg” doesn’t appear on it due to copyright I presume. The keyboard is very well detailed for its size. It comes with an “X” shaped stand for it. It does not, however, come with a bag for the keyboard like in the anime. A minor quibble. Each K-On Figma comes with regular shoes and indoor Japanese school shoes.
Tsumaugi, along with the other K-On Figmas are excellent. A must for K-On fans, or even just fans of moe action figures.
