Get a glimpse of the future at MegaHobby Expo 2016 Autumn

It's late fall so you know what that means: MegaHobby Expo time! I'm always hyped to see what kind of new stuff is coming soon (or in Alter's case, much later). Let this be a reminder for all of you to start saving up! Here's a quick rundow...

MegaHobby Expo 2015 photo

MegaHobby Expo 2015 Spring: Hobby Japan

Hobby Japan often caters to the more salacious crowd, and I'm getting a bit of that from their display at MegaHobby Expo. Unfortunately a lot of these will likely be Hobby Japan exclusives, so actually buying them can be a tricky propositio...

Amakuni Bishamon photo

Amakuni serves up a stray god for you

If pretty women with giant swords floats your boat, check out Amakuni's Bishamon from the manga/anime series Noragami. She's supposed to be a god of combat - I guess she looks the part? Kind of? This looks to be a Hobby Japan exclusive, alt...

Amakuni Asuka photo

Amakuni's new Asuka is a cut above

Amakuni have recently carved out a lucrative niche collaborating with Hobby Japan magazine, producing high quality exclusive figures for the publication. That collaboration doesn't look like it's about to stop anytime soon either, as today ...

Amakuni Muramasa Sansei photo

Amakuni's Muramasa is lacking in the full metal department

Amakuni is certainly no stranger to women in skimpy outfits, but this is their first figure of Muramasa from Full Metal Daemon: Muramasa. The eponymous character has been made into a figure before by Max Factory wearing an outfit that'...

Tomopop Review: Amakuni's Marika Kato

It's clearly pirate season at Tomopop. We've just seen Tian take on Alphamax's enticing Velvet Batrass, and now I'm here to take a look at another lady pirate, albeit one considerably more covered up. It's Amakuni's version of Marika Kato, ...

[NSFW] Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Amakuni

Amakuni brought a little bit new to Wonder Festival 2014 Winter. Sure, they had that lovely Queens Gate Noel Vermillion and there's the obligatory KanColle figure in the form of Shimakaze. The Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet figure looks wonderful ...

Amakuni Belphegor photo

[NSFW] Amakuni's Belphegor is just the laziest

Although Belphegor isn't really looking the part, she is the representation of Sloth in Hobby Japan's Seven Deadly Sins brand. We've seen the character design, but now you can check out the painted version in the latest magazine scans. Obvi...

Queen's Blade photo

[NSFW] Queen's Blade's Tomoe is tied up for the moment

The Queen's Whatever series has gone on for much longer than I expected, and it has given us a bounty of exploitative, mildly rape-y figures to enjoy (or not). The latest magazine scans have a few for us to look at. The bulk of the coverage...

Amakuni Erza photo

Amakuni and Hobby Japan's Erza now up for pre-order

A few days back we saw a quick unpainted prototype showing of Hobby Japan's take on Erza Scarlet, a collaboration with Amakuni. Now in very short order we've got both pictures of the fully painted figure and pre-orders up and ready to go. S...

Amakuni's Erza photo

Unwrap Amakuni's Erza Scarlet prototype

Amakuni and Hobby Japan announced a little while back that they'd be making a figure of the much loved Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail, but we hadn't had a chance to see anything of the actual product until earlier today, when a Hobby Japan pr...

Hobby Japan Lucifer photo

[NSFW] It's hot in hell so cool off with this new Lucifer

Speaking of hell, it must be freezing over because there are some swimsuit figures coming out that I actually want. Then again, it's probably not freezing over after all as you can see by the state of Lucifer's dress. The prototype for this...

Pre-order Marika photo

Pre-order Amakuni's Marika from Bodacious Space Pirates

We have followed the production of Amakuni's Marika for a long time; From an unpainted prototype at MegaHobby 2013, A tweet of a painted prototype to a recent magazine scan. For those of you who wanted the pre-order her, the wait is now fin...

Marika Katou photo

Scans reveal Amakuni's Marika Katou is almost here

I don't really get it. Bodacious Space Pirates was a real hit when it aired back in 2012. And yet, despite a plucky cast of female characters (oh, there were some guys there, too), it didn't get a lot of interest on the merchandise side. Th...

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Amakuni

We knew ahead of time that we'd see Amakuni's Marika Katou (from Mouretsu Pirates) at WonFes. Indeed, Kristina was able to get a few photos of the figure, painted and unpainted. I think she looks terrific - certainly up to par with other Am...

Bodacious Space Pirates photo

Amakuni's Marika is ready to plunder Wonder Festival

I was very excited when news came out that Amakuni were making a figure of Bodacious Space Pirates' Marika Katou and my enthusiasm didn't wane when we saw the prototype back at MegaHobby Expo. Now, with Wonder Festival immine...

Amakuni's Dark General photo

Amakuni's Dark General summoned for pre-order

Popping up in Hobby Japan's shop today is Amakuni's Dark General. Based on the character from Shingeki no Bahamut, the November release packs one heck of a hefty sword, a lot of detail, and not a lot of armor. I guess when you're a dark gen...

Seven Deadly Sins Satan photo

Feel the wrath in this Satan gallery

We got a glimpse of the sculpted Satan in last month's magazine scans. As it turns out, she also made an appearance at MegaHobby Expo. For whatever reason, photos of her didn't come out until a couple of days ago, but now we can see how muc...

Megahobby Expo: Amakuni photo

Megahobby Expo 2013 Spring: Amakuni

Among the many companies to set up booths at Megahobby Expo, the newest might be Amakuni. Tied closely with Hobby Japan, Amakuni has made a few exclusive figures for the hobby magazine so far, but three prototypes were also on display at Me...
