NYCC 2016: Good Smile Company

Good Smile Company's Mamitan has been hard at work revealing their upcoming figures at NYCC. There are lots of Nendoroids and figmas but I wasn't expecting this many video game figures. The full armor Megaman X Nendoroid has been painted an...

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 5/18 to 5/24

Give Miku a splash of color with the Tell Your World version

As far as Miku variants go, the "Tell Your World" version isn't terribly radical. In fact it's mostly just a cool splash of paint on the standard Miku design. However the sculpt has a delicacy and sense of motion that really bring this figu...
