Sailor Mercury is revealed as the next Sailor Moon series Pullip

The brains of the Inner Senshi, Sailor Mercury, is joining Sailor Moon in the realm of Pullip dolls. This may just be me, but Mercury seems to look a lot better in this line than Moon does. Maybe it's the haircut. Groove also...

Pre-order Kotobukiya's swimsuited Saber so you can take it to the beach photo
Pre-order Kotobukiya's swimsuited Saber so you can take it to the beach
by Scarecroodle

Kotobukiya's 1/7-scale Fate/hollow ataraxia Saber swimsuit is currently available for pre-order.

Fate/hollow ataraxia is the visual novel follow-up to the hit Fate/stay night (later converted into a manga and anime) and, as such, the Saber depicted here (a.k.a. Arturia Pendragon) is the best known member of that particular servant class. While I'm generally not a fan of the various swim-suited Sabers, Kotobukiya did a fairly good job with this one. The pose is playful, the sculpting is solid, and the paint all looks great. Granted, the beach base looks a little hokey but it's a small quibble considering everything else that went right.

Kotobukiya's swim-suited Saber can be pre-ordered for around ¥7,800 and is slated for a January release. If you do pick one up, just don't take it to the beach. Salt-water can really mess up a figure's paint.

League of Legends finally gets a licensed figure in Nendoroid Ahri  photo
League of Legends finally gets a licensed figure in Nendoroid Ahri
by Brian Szabelski

Somehow, Riot Games' League of Legends has had very little in the way of merchandise — especially figures — which is weird, considering its popularity. That's all changed, however, as it looks like Riot and Good Smile Company have come together to produce Nendoroid Ahri.

The popular mid-lane champion is going to be available at the 2014 World Championships in Seoul, South Korea, per the ticket page on Interpark for the event's semifinals. Ahri should be available at the onsite shop, which will be open during the semifinals at Seoul's Olymic Gymnastics Arena on Oct. 11 and 12.

We'll let you know if she becomes available anywhere besides 2014 Worlds, but given GSC's track record of bundling Nendos with limited edition game packages ... I don't have high hopes yet.

True Cast's Walking Dud gets a PVC version photo
True Cast's Walking Dud gets a PVC version
by Brian Szabelski

Last year for New York Comic Con, True Cast Studio brought along Walking Dud, a rubber zombie figure. You won't have to wait that long for the new PVC version, though: it'll be available on Sunday, Aug. 31, at 8 p.m. Central (9 p.m. Eastern, 6 p.m. Pacific). 

It's also worth noting that these have been produced at Onell Design's factory in China, and additionally, will have Glyos System-style articulation (and presumably, would have Glyos-compliant parts). Looks like all the detail from the rubber figures is here, too!

Two colorways will be available: a Pheyden blue unpainted version for US$8, and an Ultra Rotten painted version for US$15. If you'd like an Ultra Rotten in clamshell packaging, though, they're offering those, too, for US$20 each.
