Fire Emblem: Awakening’s Marth And Tharja To Get Figurines

By Ishaan . February 10, 2013 . 9:19pm

Following in the footsteps of Samus, Link and Pit, two more Nintendo characters are getting figurines. At the Wonder Festival in Japan, Max Factory teased two figures based on characters from Fire Emblem: Awakening. The first is a Figma of Marth, which wasn’t actually shown, but just teased:

 

The other is a statue-figurine of Tharja from Fire Emblem: Awakening, which the Good Smile Company had at WonFes in prototype form:

 

 

Thanks to Siliconera reader, Hiru, for the heads up!

        Thank you thank you.
        I’ll be here all week.

      That’s a good one in my opinion. ^_^

    Tharja…

    WHY

    (I HAVE NO MONEY)

        First sarcastic response I’ve seen from you in quite some time

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          I wasn’t trying to be sarcastic! Sakurazaki’s comment just read “THARJA WHY” earlier (I think he may have hit “post” by mistake) so I thought he was asking about her pose. :P

          • andref

            I’m just messing with you. I’m just saying that its been awhile since I’ve seen a “unmod-like” comment from you

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            Oh. Yeah… as much as I’d love to be able to just hang out and chat in the comments, certain kinds of people make that impossible to do. :/

          • Linhua

            … oh… what a relief… and here I thought you guys weren’t allowed to do this like the game developers.

            … ‘s kind of a shame game developers have to respond to select individuals like a robot with auto-responses… it’s the only thing that makes me sad about this industry.

            … subject-related though… Tharja is not surprising… nor is that pose. XD

            … this was made just for people like me with uncontrollable desires and no money.

            … Marth would have been cool to see though… so many versions of him running around that I don’t even feel like I know him anymore.

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            I think it’s incredibly sad that game developers have to be as guarded as they are because the vast majority of people on the Internet are too immature to understand what’s being said.

            But nah, in our case, I guess a couple of us are just grumpy every time we look in the comments because of some of the stupid behaviour we see. :P

          • Linhua

            … the way I see it… ‘s no different than what people go through out in the public. There’s always gonna be douche bags souring everyone’s day with ignorance.

            … here though… you guys are like Gods… lol…being mods… you can get rid of all the ignorance you want [with a fair warnings of course]… then again… I guess that power is just about useless since you’re terribly outnumbered and they just keep coming anyway… =

          • Sakurazaki

            I have edited my comment so your comment follows ;)

    Oh god, I think my wallet just exploded.

  • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

    I am not surprised whatsoever that Tharja got a figure, although that pose is just a bit too anatomically painful for my likings.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      That’s the kind of pose one goes into when someone needs to pass gas but wants to hide it from the world. When of course they are doing anything but. :P

      • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

        ﹁ ﹁ …

        • M’iau M’iaut

          (x) (x)….

      • Sakurazaki

        By all means, let her pass gas all she wants <3

        • Davide Costa

          Are you sexually excited by farts?

      • ParaChomp

        Oh my Lord…I don’t know what to say but thank you for posting this; it made my day.

  • http://www.fogalchemist.com/ caleb1993

    Cool, I hope some of the other characters get figures (Sumia, Cordelia, Miriel, just to name a few). Also, cannot wait to see how the Marth one turns out. Will definitely be picking that one up. Maybe the Tharja one as well.

  • Guest

    …The tendons in my legs and my spinal cord ache just from looking at that picture…

    • MogCakes

      I agree, Marth is looking quite badass.

    • Sakurazaki

      A certain area of my pants is aching.

  • Curan_Altea

    I’ll definitely get the “Marth” figure, Tharja…. not one of my favorite characters. A great one still, but I would’ve preferred a Cordelia.

    • Ayaka

      You can’t possibly imagine how much I’m with you here.
      Cordelia would be a wonderful add to my collection, and hopefully it won’t be as… ehm, “not really Nintendo” as the Tharja one. Marth Day-1 buy.

  • http://amc9988.deviantart.com/ amc99

    I just hope someone will recolor her black tight clothes into skin color… Wait what?

  • Laith Rem

    Hope Marth gets the option to be without mask. I’ll buy it in a heartbeat in that case.

  • Zal_Yagun

    Oh. If its that “marth”, then thats a good buy from me.

  • https://twitter.com/A_Beast_of_Prey Equinox K

    So the Queen B***h of Plegia gets her own statue. It looks great even though she’s abit of an ass (pun not intended) and that pose is too unbelievable for anyone to pull off without slipping a few discs and throwing out a hip.

    • Suicunesol

      I don’t really understand what’s wrong with her pose. o_0 I can do that just as well as she can.

      • http://www.facebook.com/trevor.nicolaysen Trevor Nicolaysen

        So can I. Don’t judge me.

      • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

        A near 90-degree curve of the spine? Come on now.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          She was born with scoliosis — if she stood straight up she would look like the Tower of Pisa.

        • Suicunesol

          90 degrees sharp lol no. But near 90 degrees? YES.

          Come on, have you never seen an olympic gymnast do her stuff?

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            …Yes, but that’s an olympic gymnast; that’s what they train to do on a regular basis. Tharja is a mage; even ignoring the archetypal tropes of mages being physically fragile, she’s still a regular person.

            And keep in mind, we’re not talking about the angle being at the waist; we’re talking about the angle being right at the middle of the spine. That is just impossible without breaking anything.

          • Arrei

            Maybe she’s just flexible.

            Some people can get in some pretty weird poses like that.

          • Herok♞

            Clearly she put a hex on her back so the pose would be possible hence no one else except “Marth” has a figure.

          • MrTyrant

            Who really cares, is sexy. That’s enough for me.

          • MogCakes

            pain is beauty…

          • Suicunesol

            Then I guess being a mage (a dark one at that), makes her capable of doing some bizarre things. :P

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            [Nod] I’ll take that explanation.

      • https://twitter.com/A_Beast_of_Prey Equinox K

        Try doing some of the poses listed here.

    I need this.

    I NEED IT.

  • Guest

    Can I get one of Chrom in Tharja’s pose? Or maybe the Vaike.

    • Arrei

      Vaike…?

      OH GOD, MY BRAIN.

      • Linhua

        *checks watch*

        … it’s Rein Time. Go! GO!

        … I got this.

    • Hraesvelgr

      Sadly, male figures supposedly sell a good bit less than female ones, so they’re very uncommon in comparison.

      • Locklear93

        I’ve got a few thousand dollars in figures. Not one male. The few male characters I’d have wanted figures of just don’t exist. Well, except for a few tiny trading figures.

    • z_merquise

      The Vaike’s pose would be much Vaikier.

  • VeroC11

    Also, Shizue from New Leaf is getting a nendo.

  • Lazulis

    Removable mask, and Marth is a painful, but nonregrettable instabuy.

    Also, my spine hurts just LOOKING at it…

  • SolidusSnake

    Make a Frederick figure and I will buy it DAY 1 BABY

    • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

      …That all-caps part sounds like someone else I know, but I can’t quite put the finger on who…

      • M’iau M’iaut

        THAT WOULD BE DAY ONE BABEE!!

      • sd28

        tsuna

        • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

          (Psst, don’t explain the joke.)

    • Aunna Terrell

      ADGLDJGDLKJGL;DSAJHLDKH I’m planning on getting both Marth and Tharja figures!! But OMG, FREDERICK?! They better announce some male ones too! I’ll even settle for Chrom, if I have too. XD

      • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

        Woe to the hardcore figure collectors if Nintendo ever decides to produce figures for every single possible partner…

  • $39420547

    am not into figurines but if i was i would be very interested in the Tharja one

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    See? Books ARE useful =^_^=

    Seriously though, I’m so getting Tharja.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      She’s damn glad those are hardbacks.

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        N-no Azure, must resist witty comback, too easy, don’t do it lol

        • M’iau M’iaut

          Hey those thunder thighs alone would support mountains!

          • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

            Alright that’s it lol. I didn’t wanna have to do this but…….

            M’iau M’iau: “She’s damn glad those are hardbacks”

            My Response – She doesn’t need those hardbacks because I’ve also got something hard for her =P

            M’iau M’iau: “Hey those tunder thighs alone would support mountains!”

            My Response – They are. They’re supporting the 2 mountains on her chest =P

          • Christopher Nunes

            Just couldn’t leave it alone, could ya AzureNova? XD

          • Locklear93

            Those are nothing. The Prier figure from La Pucelle goes so much farther: http://www.toysnjoys.com/disgaea/lapucelletacticsprier.jpg That was either my first or second PVC figure ever…

          • M’iau M’iaut

            They might have just as well made the figure JUST THE THIGHS.

          • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

            Wow lol. Tis very nice indeed.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    I wish they’d let my female tactician marry Tharja. That would be so hot.

    • http://twitter.com/Leo058 Leonidas Eliades

      Trust me, Sariya would if she had the chance.

  • z_merquise

    After Tharja joined my party and saw her design, no wonder she’ll be given a figure treatment.

    I’m more hoping for Sumia or Cordelia though.

    Most male characters won’t be likely but I do like to see someone like Lon’qu or heck, even Gregor. They’re one of my favorites.

    • Saint_Stahn

      Gregor and Lon’qu shirtless figma. Now. Heck I’m sure they should sell as good as this one. Those two are awesome. That being said, not really surprised Tharja got this treatment. Kinda like Ira from FE4… But I am surprised NOT CHROM figma? the heck? wasn’t he the main man candy of the game?

    • Locklear93

      Sumia I’d buy in an instant. What a fun character.

  • Josh Strange

    color.. y u no exist?

    • raymk

      I think you can paint it but I’m not sure.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    I was ridiculed for saying Tharja was my fave, now she’s getting a figma. Sweet, sweet redemption!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Tharja would look great with my Queen blade figures. What? Don’t look at me like that

  • Oltheros

    good lawd, dat Tharja

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Those thighs are too much.
    TOO MUCH

    • raymk

      You can handle it mane.

  • fireemblembeast

    tbh I half expected Awakening to get figurines since it got so many other stuff, but nonetheless, I’m still surprised! I’ve been only playing FE13 since thursday non-stop because we’re snowed in where I am…and a few minutes ago I woke up to my mom trying to steal my 3DS from under my pillow, but I got it before she could! My 3DS+FE13=my baby.
    Oh yeah, so I got married to Chrom, so it makes me mad how in the OP, Sumia is holding my baby! >:I
    XD Anyways, I’m probably gonna get the Marth one, so can’t wait to see how it looks! :) (Tharja would be kinda awkward to have, so…>_>;)

  • fireemblembeast

    And they said Mariabel had bad posture…

  • Armane

    This is like figma Samus all over again. On the one hand, I want to get it, on the other hand, I’d have to get it if it wasn’t this version.

  • kool_cid414

    I never bought a figure before, *wipes drool* I think I might start.

    • AnimusVox

      I want to buy these figures but damn they can be expensive but damn that’s nice.

  • zackner

    It’s so beauty Tharja’s figure

  • Raltrios

    Arrgh… I need to hurry up and get to the point where you get Tharja in-game so I can decide if I’ll like her enough to buy this… I just spent a good load on Milla from Xillia…

  • Naux

    Barbie could never beat these figurines.

  • Akai Ringo

    mm Tharja-san… i would help you support that nice round buttocks any day…

  • Locklear93

    Stupid Tharja. Running up to my most powerful unit and getting wiped out before I could talk you into joining my party. ; ;

  • Quinton Cunningham

    I’m really surprised by how fanserivce-y Awakening and some of it’s merchandise has been. Not complaining at all, but I’m surprised Nintendo is lightening up it’s stance on some of this stuff. ESPECIALLY with this figure and the design of multiple characters (looking at you, Nowi).

    I mean, Kid Icarus had some, but this is a whole other level.

  • raymk

    SO I guess I will get both of these(the tharja first) and that Mitsuru figurine.

  • cirE

    I’m interested, although I’ve never been into Figures/Figma previously. Where I would go about pre-ordering / ordering one from? (I’m in the US).

  • Sylveria

    Oh.. Tharja.. *swoons*
