Expelled from Paradise is a big deal anime film release from this past December, so I haven't had a chance to see it (even if Aniplex was kind enough to screen it in America, I don't live in a city large enough to warrant exh... read
If you're into more developed women, Alphamax is a good manufacturer to look at. They mostly make borderline ecchi figures, although their SkyTube label has more explicit stuff. They had a handful of figures on display for Wo... read
Despite having the SkyTube brand to market their ero figures, Alphamax's seems to have gotten more ero as well. While this Excellen Browning isn't fully naked, we're at a point where black censor bars would achieve a similar ... read
Not a red hot but a black (and purplish) hot flame An unpainted prototype of AlphaMax's Hiei (YuYu Hakusho) has appeared. The figure depicts the demon leaping into the air while summoning the Dragon of the Darkness Flame from his arm.
While it doesn't look like the flame is p... read feature
Was this what you had in mind when you heard the words, 'cow girl'? Mooooo-ve aside, cat girls! There's a new (and oddly appropriate) animal-themed outfit in town. AlphaMax's Sena Kashiwazaki Cow Design Swimsuit Ver. may seem an udderly wacky outfit at first glance, but the costume is well-suited to the fetishism of mammary glands.
So how many cow-related puns can I milk out of one review? Find out after the jump! read feature
I have some mixed feelings about Alphamax designs in general, but I do like the look of this Alisa Illinichina Amiella from God Eater 2. This month's Hobby Japan scans show the manufacturer's second attempt at Alisa.
Skytube's Nozomi Watase 1/6-scale figure Figure blogger Danny Choo is treating us to a preview of Skytube's Nozomi Watase, a Tony Taka-designed maid from the Genmukan hentai anime and game franchise. I've seen the original Genmukan's treatment of Nozomi, and let's j... read feature
I know I've talked a lot about the terrible winter we've been experiencing so I don't want to spend a lot of time on that. I'll just quickly say that I have a feeling I'll be pulling weeds from my garden this year while it's ... read
Enticing booty I really like the sexy pirate trope, which seems more prevalent in Japanese properties than in the West. When thinking of pirate figures, Mouretsu Pirates' Marika and Queen's Blade's Liliana spring to mind. Alphamax's Ve... read feature
Take a moment to enjoy other people playing with toys Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! This week we're doing something entirely different from the normal LinkUP. Last week we took no prisoners when reporting on Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] which doesn't leave much for ... read feature
They say that looking at the bride's dress before the wedding is bad luck. You really can't help but a sneak a peek here with Alphamax's Saber Bride. She certainly debuted to a lot of fanfare, but it's been a little while sin... read
Akiba Hobby has released a photo gallery for AlphaMax's recently released Shining Ark Velvet which shows off Velvet's ample treasure chest. Sure, her pirate booty is nice as well but I've been more into pirate boobies.
If tha... read
AlphaMax's 1/8 scale Fate/EXTRA CCC Saber Bride is currently available for pre-order.
Although I haven't exactly been a fan of the Saber Bride design, I'm seeing the appeal when the zipper is down as seen with the AlphaMax version. It still seems like an unbelievably kooky design but there's some definite fetish fuel going on here.
Full info after the jump. read
Unofficial winner of the "Best Butt" award! Alisa looked hot when pre-orders were first announced. Over a month has passed and she still looks hot! This is what happens when a company like AlphaMax who I think are very good at making quality swimsuit figurine... read feature
The master of the PVC world's perviness is at it again, expanding the T2 Art Girls line with another original character Yae Shobi. She's not quite as interesting and unique as the recent Iris, but she's certainly got an appea... read
Tony Taka's character designs have been the subject of more than a few figures lately, especially if they're from the Shining series of games. At Miyazawa Model Expo, Alphamax revealed a sculpt of Shining Ark's Viola. You mig... read
Is the March wait for Tony's gorgeous Iris still too far off? One of the sexier Tony figures in recent memory--no small feat--I'd imagine anyone who's gotten a pre-order in is eagerly awaiting the day they'll be able to get h... read
How big is too big? Sorceress's chest may be a good start While the age old argument of how big is too big may always remain up for debate, few might disagree that Sorceress passed that line by at least a mile. Alphamax's Sorceress's sizable assets (or boobset?) have received a prev... read feature
Holy crap, Alisa.. I um.. I kinda want to grab your booty. I'm calling it right now. This version of Alisa Ilinichina Amiella is already worth the pre-order just to get a glimpse of that booty she's rockin'! Either that or th... read
Last month, Alpha Max opened its pre-orders for its rendition of the Sorceress from Dragon's Crown. The figure was controversial to its design, and out of nowhere, was pulled from pre-orders. Now the Sorceress has been summon... read
The Shining series has its share of lovely Tony Taka designs, but I can't recall one quite so lovely as Shining Ark's Velvet. This is not the forest-dwelling bastard princess of Odin Sphere, but they certainly have a similar ... read
Well this is certainly something you don't see every day. Alphamax's take on the Sorceress from Dragon's Crown has caught a little bit of heat, mostly due to the controversial character design, but it had plenty of fans ... read
Saber Lily is just one of those designs that appeals. It's not flashy, bright, or overly adorned. Its beauty lies in its simplicity. Whenever a company has their take on the alternate Saber, it's hard to ignore the beauty. Al... read
It's been Griffon who have been churning out figures based on Sword Art Online recently, but (fortunately) Alphamax has now decided to join the party, producing a rather lovely version of heroine Asuna. Based on her appe... read
If you like Tony Taka figures, then boy, this month's scans are a treat for you with a trio of ladies. One of the three we've seen before: Kotobukiya's Daisy-chan, joining the Tony's Heroine Collection as a 1/6-scale figure. ... read
Alphamax - 1/6 scale Another Sena breaking from the bikini/uniform norm was put up to pre-order a couple months ago, and it's certainly hard to pass up such delicious meat dressed up like, well, delicious meat. Sure, she might technically still b... read feature
Yes, we needed this Just in case I haven't gushed quite enough about upcoming Lamp Miku by AlphaMax, which is still up for pre-order and slated for release in October, here are some more pictures. Check out the gallery for a selection of images from a recent preview by Danny Choo.
I can't get over how pretty and perfect this is! read feature
Over the past month we've shown you Alphamax's upcoming pair from Oreimo, since of course, as I said, where there is one of these ladies, the other is sure to follow. It's always nice to see a series that puts effort forth in... read
I've said before that not all blatant fanservice figures are just trashy porn, and as usual, the masterful Tony Taka proves me right again. His earlier designs from Fault!! were absolutely gorgeous, and this original Snow Whi... read
I appreciate original character designs, and Tony Taka is pretty good at creating them. Alpha Max showed two of them in this month's magazine scans. The unpainted one is Iris Harley from the game Valhellio. Judging by the sou... read
We saw Alphamax's one-piece dress Kirino go up for pre-orders a few weeks ago and, as is the immutable law when it comes to Oreimo, Kuroneko was sure to follow soon. Now she's here, sporting a similar dressed-down look to Kir... read
With the second season of OreImo on the roll it's no surprise that a lot of new merchandise related to the series is popping up. One such example is AlphaMax's latest figurine of Kirino, everyone’s favorite leading lady... read
