Clayz's enters the battle-damaged fray with a new Saber


Nov 24
// Brian Szabelski
Clayz has a new 1/6-scale Saber up for pre-order, with the twist being she's got some battle damage on her this time around. However, what's nice is that this isn't the usual "battle-damaged" figure with boobs and butts all o...

1/8-scale cold cast figure
Aug 20
// Tianxiao Ma
No you haven't fallen into a time warp, this is an Evangelion 2.0 figure in 2014. Like, a thousand years after the film's release. Why this Ayanami? And why now? I don't know, but I welcome it. The subject admittedly isn't th...

Clayz's new Saber looks sick... like literally sick


Is she about to throw up?
Apr 05
// Scarecroodle
My first thoughts upon seeing Clayz's photos of a prototype for an armored Saber were is she going to throw up? While the character has been awkwardly posed in the past, never has she looked this nauseous. The 25-cm tall figu...

Mar 13

Clayz has released some in-progress photos of the prototype for its upcoming Fate/EXTRA CCC Saber Bride... and, well, she looks all white. The sculpting looks like it's coming along great. The nice thing is that Clayz has opt...

Tomopop LinkUP: Walking in a winter Wonder Festival

Jan 30 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
7-Eleven in Japan (yep, that's a thing) is now base to its own Gundam. A special version of the RX-93 Nu Gundam HG Gunpla is now calling the convenience store chain home. Done up in green, white, red, and yellow the kit is only running for ¥2,625. ToysREvil posted these really cool throw pillows based on game handhelds and controllers by Castella Natalia. Love the cartoonish look to them. Studio Ghibli fan Nendojin went above and beyond simple fan art to make a sculpture of the man himself: Hayao Miyazaki. RocketNews24 has posted video of the piece being made from start to finish. Job well done! Wave previewed a pair of girls from Majestic Prince being added to the Beach Queens line. Not Wave's best work and even they don't seem enthusiastic about them considering they haven't delivered their promised additional info on the girls despite being available for pre-order now. I guess they can't all be winners. And this is what it looks like when Wave tries hard. Akiba Hobby has posted a photo review for the upcoming Beach Queens Illyasviel von Einzbern from Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA. The effort they put into a figure this cute speaks for itself. In case you missed it the three figures from Hunter X Hunter are now available again for re-release. While there's nothing particularly new about them the official figma blog has posted the trio together. The real attraction is a quick three-panel comic. Check out CLayz newest Kuroneko figure from OreImo featuring a school swimsuit with cat years and tail. Oh man, she's perfect! Akiba Hobby posted a preview of Kotobukiya's Wonder Festival exclusive Kobato figure from Haganai. This is a red-dressed repaint of the figure Koto released just this past October. Looking good. Piapro posted a gallery for the upcoming Snow Miku 2014 Licca-chan doll. I kinda don't want to admit that it's growing on me... Also coming to Wonder Festival is a repaint of Orchid Seed's many Super Sonico figures. Based on a figure only just released back in December she is now sporting a chrome silver bikini. Not my kind of thing, but she does look really well made. Dark Horse has licensed the figure rights to the Powers series of comics and graphic novels. Their first piece is the impressively big Retro Girl statue which will later be followed by vinyl figures. More info can be found at the link. Kahotan posted a great gallery for Nendoroid Yoshino from Date A Live. Stiff contender for one of the cutest Nendoroids of all time! Tokidoki is collaborating Pullip on new doll Lunarosa. She's completely clad in Tokidoki fashion and even comes with a Donutella plush. She even gets her own tattoos! No price was given, but she'll be out in February. Sonico hasn't always been her full-figured self. Even she was a kid once. That's the message that Wing is sending with the prototype of their new child version of Nitro+'s digital diva. It actually is a rather cute figure in a much different way than we're used to seeing Sonico. Plum has made a new mini figure for their original character Sarah. She comes in two versions, either red or green. Both are exclusives, starting with sales at Wonder Festival for only ¥600 each. After that the red version will be sold throughout Nagano prefecture while the green one will be sold at the Lake Suwa SA (service area) for ¥700 each. Customizer Jared Flores created this really amazing Vinylmation version of the classic and iconic Dumbo ride found at Disney parks. The piece uses four Vinylmation Dumbo figures and one three-foot Vinylmation figure. Nicely done! That's all for this week! Come back next week when I'm sure we'll have another pile of Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] previews to look at among other great things.
