My Hero Academia – Asui Tsuyu – Hero Suit Ver. (Bell Fine) – Pre-order Info and My Impressions
Pre-orders are available now for Bell Fine and Takara Tomy’s upcoming¬†Asui Tsuyu (a.k.a Froppy) figure. From the popular anime¬†My Hero Academia (or¬†Boku no Hero Academia if you prefer), Froppy¬†is 1/8 scale and about 20cm tall. The figure features interchangeable face parts and a removable helmet.
Froppy turned out super cute! I’ve liked the look of this figure since the first prototype photo, and I can easily say I’m happy with how she’s turned out. The colours are bold and vibrant, the paintwork looks great, and the option to remove her helmet and tongue is a really nice touch that I wasn’t expecting. My only quibble is that I think the “SPLASH!” sound effect could have been a different colour to stand out more. But the base really does help this figure pop, I feel.
The price is perhaps a little higher than I would have expected, but not by a huge amount. That, coupled with her March release date, does mean that I might not be able to pick this one up immediately. There are so many great figures releasing early next year!
I’ll definitely be considering my options, though, because I really like how this figure has turned out – right now, she’s up at the top of my wishlist. I think this one is sure please fans of our favourite froggy heroine!
