Although the Super Mario license is with Bandai and its Figuarts line, the rest of the Nintendo characters are apparently still with Figma, like Lucina here. She's an important character in Fire Emblem Awakening, and one of the fighters in the latest iterations of Super Smash Bros. Both are good games, so I pre-ordered Lucina when I found out she was available. Like other Figma, Lucina includes alternate hands, a stand, and alternate hair and face pieces. There is also a hilt for her sword, which plugs into the sheath, if you don't want her wielding it. It is an otherwise non-functional sheathe, as the actual sword doesn't fit in it. I don't think I've seen that before. She's got the usual Figma style articulation, and even her cloak is articulated. Aside from her standard, serious face, Lucina includes a face that's blushing and has a small smile. Her alternate hair piece has a mask and shorter hair, depicting the time she spends posing as Marth.
