In the past I’ve shown the excellent 1/4 scale Lucky Star figures that FREEing originally released in 2009-2010 as well as the hard to find extra outfits. Apparently, enough crazy Lucky Star fans like myself bought the figures that FREEing followed up their original set of 4 figures with an additional 4, this time with some of the girls from class 1-D. And I just happen to be crazy enough to purchase the four new figures and have them here for your visual enjoyment ;)
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!
There is a new reason to rejoice for Lucky Star fans. Today, FREEing started reservations for a new 1/4 scale Lucky Star figure: Yutaka Kobayakawa! Like the previous FREEing 1/4 scale Lucky Star figures, Yutaka is dressed in a school gym uniform, only this time instead of shorts, she is wearing bloomers. Yay! ;)
Yutaka is from one of the younger classes, maybe that’s why she gets bloomers? She’s super cute! I think we’ll be seeing more of the other girls coming in the future too. Good Smile says this “The Lucky Star gym uniform series from FREEing is set to continue, this time bringing all the characters in the other classes to join their older friends!”. Even more of the other girls to follow? :D
Yutaka will be released in October and will retail for 14,095 yen. A bit pricey, but she is 1/4 scale. She is available for pre-order at Amiami for 11,250 yen and Hobby Search for 11,981 yen (plus 599 points!) so you won’t have to pay the full retail price :)
Anyone going to be getting her? I am very tempted by her moe-ness! I already have the original 4 figures by FREEing and I’m compelled to get all the girls in the set. Very possible get for me!

It’s quite a while since I’ve done a proper figure review, hasn’t it? ^^;
Time to change that! This time, I have a special treat. Following the Super Konata and Super Kagami reviews from last year, it’s a Super Tsukasa and Super Miyuki double review! These lovely ladies round out the last two entries of FREEing’s 1/4 scale Lucky Star set. Continue reading
Hey, look at this ^^ At the ongoing Chara Hobby 2009 event, FREEing displayed new, alternative outfits for their 1/4 scale Lucky Star figures. Konata was released last month and Kagami will be out in a few days. By default, all the figures come with gym uniforms but it looks like we’ll have the option to pick up cheerleader, miko, and winter serafuku outfits as well!
So awesome! It now makes perfect sense why they designed the figures to be (mostly safe) cast-offable ^^ Buy the figure once and you’ll have the ability to dress it in multiple sets of clothing :) It seems the cheerleader outfit will be the first one released. Now we just need some details on pricing and release dates.
Will probably be more interesting goodies shown at Chara Hobby later ^^
