Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: MegaHouse

MegaHouse appears to have had one of the larger displays on the floor at Wonder Festival 2015 Winter. MH had no shortage of new figures to show alongside some figures they've been toting along for a few years now. While a lar...

Class is in session with Ginpachi-sensei

The last time we caught a glimpse of Ginpachi-sensei at Wonder Festival 2013 Summer over a month ago, he was still in his unpainted prototype form, but now, the homeroom teacher from the light novel series (and anime extras), Gintama Class 3-Z Ginpachi-sensei, is ready to teach everyone a good lesson in language-Jump style.

There's no denying Ginpachi isn't what you might call a typical homeroom teacher as he smokes his trademark lerolero candy (lollipop) while heading to his classroom without a care. I like the way the fabric of his white lab-coat sways with his movement, it really adds a lot of realism to the pose. Not to be missed is the detail of the Shounen Jump issue hidden underneath the "Good language" book Ginpachi is holding in his left hand. After all, Ginpachi is not one to miss the latest chapter of One Park. As a bonus, Ginpachi may also be posed with an alternate hand holding a piece of strawberry cake.

Ginpachi-sensei is currently available as a MEGATREA SHOP exclusive; however, there's no need to worry, a local shop is currently securing pre-orders without the need to contact a proxy service. Get ready to join Ginpachi sensei and the class of 3-Z this upcoming January for an enrollment fee of ¥8400.

Share a drink with Gintoki and the gang  photo
Share a drink with Gintoki and the gang
by Yami Casas

How would you like Gintoki and his cohorts to join you for some refreshing tea time? Well, now they can, thanks to MegaHouse's delightful Gintama "Tea friends series - Would you like to rest a little?" figure set.

The box set of eight figures includes Ginoki, Hijikata, Okita, Katsura, Kondo, Kagura, along with two different versions of Elizabeth. Measuring approximately 1.95 inches, each mini figure captures Gintoki and the gang in some of the most inventive clasping-type poses I have ever seen. It's not every day you can have a sip of your favorite drink, and have a fundoshi clad Gorilla staring right back at you. I am a little sad to see Shinpachi noticeably absent from the series, but as an extra incentive, each set will include an original coaster pack.

Keep a spot open in your November calendar, as Gintoki and company head over for a quick drink, provided you can cover the ¥4,800 tab for eight.

Gintama's Kyubei shows her softer side

It's not terribly often one sees Gintama's Kyubei Yagyu and thinks of anything girly, but Alter and Megahouse are providing us with a more restrained look at the Yagyu family beauty. While she may have been raised as a boy, y...

Alpha x Omega shows off two prototypes in scans

Though the Gundam SEED project has been headed by MegaHouse so far, it looks like Alpha Omega is getting in on the action (yes, I know they're related) by producing their own figure from the series featuring Yzak Joule. I'm a...
