I think figurine companies are serious. They are out to annihilate all wallets. Next company to join is Maxfactory with their 2 figurines.
First, we have Hatsune Miku from vocaloid but this is based on Tony Taka illustration.
Next we have Nendoroid Hinagiku from Hayate no Gotoku!. Instead of Good Smile Company (GSC), this nendoroid is going to be produced by Maxfactory.
