Even though FREEing has moved on and has announced plans to release more characters from the Lucky Star cast in their 1/4 scale glory, I’m not yet finished with the original four girls ;) In the past, I have shown their seifuku and miko outfits but this time I have a new treat: Cheerleader uniforms!
In order to get these very limited cheerleader outfits, owners of all four of the original 1/4 scale LS girls had to send in their proofs of purchase to FREEing and they would send you the outfits for free ^^. Quite a nice way to reward customers who bought all of the figures. Unfortunately, this offer was only available for folks with a Japanese address so I wasn’t eligible myself.
I really didn’t want to miss out on these cute cheerleader outfits so I asked around for folks in Japan who would be willing to mail in the offer for me and found a kind soul who was willing to do it ^^. Selidor from over at figure.fm was in Japan at the time and let me mail the proofs of purchase to her and several months later the outfits were mailed to her. She then mailed them to me in the US. All worked out nicely. Thanks again, Selidor! ^^
As for the outfits themselves, they may look familiar if you’ve seen the anime series. These are the outfits featured in the opening sequence and at the end of the anime ^^.
They’re pretty simple but quite cute, don’t you agree? :3
Konata commanding her moe forces
Tsuntsun Kagami ;)
Silly Tsukasa ;)
And dojiko Miyuki :)
Together, they are Lucky Star! xD
Sure, they were expensive and their 1/4 scale size takes up lots of display space, they’ve turned out to be well worth it. FREEing definitely knows how to keep a customer interested. These cheerleader outfits brings the total to four unique outfits for each of the characters. And these ones were free from FREEing (though I had to pay a bit to get them all the way to the USA ^^;). So, yeah, quite satisfied as a Lucky Star fan and I plan to acquire at least a few of the new 1/4 Lucky Star figures that FREEing has lined up. More on that in a few months ;)
