New Trailer (11th Dec 2014)
I had the video full screened and got confused when I saw the screen brightness thing come up, lol.
Haven't played Bravely Default, but it looks really interesting, I don't have a 3DS, so I won't get to play either of these games.
Edit: I just noticed the figure on the first page, as a figure collector, I figured I would talk about it for those who might be looking to buy this.
Here is a link to AmiAmi, another popular website to purchase figures from. While I actually buy from Hobby Search (the link that Squirrel posted) most often hobbyist will purchase from this site, as the prices are usually cheaper. I've also linked it so you can see the images on this page, as they've taken a lot more images, and it gives you a better impression of the figure overall. That being said, I will move on to talking about figure itself.
Overall, the figure itself is not bad.
Pose matches artwork fairly well
Paint job seems to be well done
Nice detailing in thighs, clothes, weapon, flower
Stand is not at all boring, matches the artwork well, painted nicely, looks very sturdy
Face looks wrong
The shoes are a bit off, the heels don't look right
Proportions are a bit off here and there
Overall, it's a pretty nice figure, however the face is the biggest problem. A face is what makes someone recognizable, and that face is just not right. For 10,260 yen, I'm not sure I can justify the price tag, even with DLC code. However, if you are a big fan of Bravely Default and you are going to get Bravely Second, and you want this figure, then I think it's a nice collectors item to have at the very least, the face isn't ugly it's just not perfect, and the sculpting job is not the greatest, but it's not at all a bad figure.
Lastly, for anyone who wants to buy, AmiAmi again is a nice alternative to Hobby Search. I would recommend using EMS shipping, it will probably cost you 2,000 yen or more for shipping with EMS, but you will get the figure in a reasonable time, and it's very safe.
