From the pictures I've seen, it seems the Cibo figure looks the worst made. I think the Killy and Sanakan ones look awesome tho. I'm interested to know just how tall they are? Does anybody know?

Graviton Beam Emitter,

The guy in the UK has relisted the Killy figure at eBay at a very low price:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6462927758&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1 (and he's also auctioning a Cibo figure separately).

Vale,

The Killy figure is 6" and the Cibo and Sanakan are each 6.5". They're pretty cool, although they are not as large and articulated as I would like. And they were expensive, but as soon I discovered Blame I fell in love with the art, so when I heard that the figures existed, I really wanted a set of all three (and I usually buy very few action figures).

I'm used to seeing the characters in black and white, so it's a little strange seeing the colors used on the figures (although I've seen Nihei's paintings on the manga covers and in Blame and so on).

Killy (the figure)'s suit is purple/grape-colored and Cibo has strange (sexy) bluish pearl/metallic shiny hair highights.

Sanakan is probably the most like the manga: black and white and scary with a huge gun in her hand.

ah, thank you for giving me the idea for looking on Ebay. I found a set of all 3 for 30 dollars (with cards, mint, etc.), however, I am lacking in a ebay account. I will probably create one tomarrow, and grab em.

Killy action figure on ebay, ends feb 20th. Seller links Cibo and Sanakan figures near the bottom-ish. 9.99 EUR each.

8-) For rare figures these were fairly easy to find (though the only ones being sold at this time). I would hoard them for myself, but I don't understand German plus many other ebay related difficulties *sigh*.

Thought I'd share the joy instead, since I can't have them for myself :).

Anyone have an updated list of where I can purchase these figures? It seems like you all got great deals, but all I've managed to find is Sasuga books with the Cibo figure for 30$

Not necessarily... I may not have any of the figures (yet), but i'm pretty sure they still count. For example, i've got a Blackrose Figurine from .Hack// that, just like the Blame! action figures, could still be considered an action figure from the 3-5 points of articulation it has.

It all depends on how you think of it in all honesty. It can either be an awesome display piece that is an action figure, or an awesome display piece that is just that, a display piece.

Julian Camus is right, they're not action figures. I have Sanakan and she has no joints whatsoever. They're just display figures.
