Brotherhood Figures Coming Stateside!  
Square-Enix premiered the US packaging for their release of the Brotherhood Trading Arts figures at Toyfair today. Now these have been released in Japan for awhile, but they were blind boxed, meaning you didn't know who you were getting.

But in the US, Squeenix is releasing them in sets of four figures each.

The first set includes Winry, Ed, Scar and Bradley. It will be coming in the next few weeks.

The second set will be coming later in the year, and seems to feature Al, Roy, Envy and what may be the first ever Olivia Armstrong figure!

More details and pictures here.

I have Winry from the first series and I have to tell you, these figures are REALLY nice. I'm definitely picking them all up when they come out.

(If you can't wait, I think you can get some of the blindboxes from Wizzywig, Anime Palace or possibly from the Squeenix Online shop.)

Wah, no Ling! I know there's a Ling figure that goes with this set but it's near impossible to find unless you buy a set from China!

Thanks for sharing! I know what I'm going to save my money up for!

Yeah, no Hawkeye either. I think they're staggering the releases to include at least one bad guy in each set. Call me crazy, but I like having someone they can fight. Though, Roy and Ed do a good enough job of that on their own....

Hawkeye doesn't seem to appear in many of the figure sets; I have the larger 7" figure (with the miniature Hayate), one of her from one of the original gasaphon sets, and another from a the 4" set (the one with black stands)...wait, she's been in a number of sets.

I guess they simply haven't release a figure of her in the new series of figures, at least not yet. *crosses fingers with hope!*

Yeah, I meant I hope a newly released Hawkeye figure gets paired up with Ling in a potential third set.

I don't usually 'squee' over things but, SQUEEEE!!!

Thanks! Now all I have to do is scrape together the $$$!

Oh, so... They're not releasing the specials...?

No Ling?! D:

The Bradley figure is pretty amazing, but still! Ling!
Staunch Heliocentristannepackrat on February 15th, 2010 10:30 pm (UTC)
Well, Ling isn't quite as recognizable yet. I suspect he'll accompany Hawkeye in the third set (or at least I hope there's a Hawkeye!)

What they are saying is in the original Japanese set for these figures there is a Ling. There was never a Hawkeye (unfortunately) to begin with.

I do hope there will be a 3rd set with more characters though.
Staunch Heliocentristannepackrat on February 15th, 2010 10:46 pm (UTC)
I know he was there. I'm hoping Hawkeye will be released soon and they'd include 'em both in a third set.

I already have an Ed and Ling, but I wouldn't mind having the entire second set, too. Crap, that's more money gone...

I would love to have the Olivier figure.... ahhhh~
that and Ling, but I can only find one of him on ebay and I don't have the money. sigh

Check the other comments, there's a link to a store that sells Ling separately.

That's awesome! I'm going to go broke, but it's awesome all the same. =P
rika24: royedrika24 on February 16th, 2010 07:58 am (UTC)
any idea how much they'll be? i'm just gonna go after Ed, Roy, Winry, and Olivier :) the rest i'll either keep or sell.
Kat: Olivia - Queen Winterwildvision on February 16th, 2010 08:58 am (UTC)
Any chance of these being sold separately? I really only want Olivia...if the set's cheap enough, I wouldn't mind buying it, but if it's going to be expensive, that's another story. Speaking of, anyone know a price for these yet?
Sarahtakuya on February 16th, 2010 04:11 pm (UTC)
This is perfect! I only have the Ling figure from this series. :D
It's awesome. I know the rest of these must be awesome too.

Isn't that set already out? I got it from Rightstuf.com in December...

I was expecting it to be a jillion dollars.

And thanks Anne too, @_@.
I hope there's something on the Herald when the figures displayed as Envy/Roy/Oliv. and Alphonse come out.

This is suuuuuuuuuch good news. Buying these in full sets from Japan or risking getting duplicates from the boxes is such a pain. I ended up buying Ling on Ebay, but now I can buy everyone else in one go and it not TOTALLY rape my wallet!
