This preview should make you feel pretty good about Kotobukiya's Eren Yeager

It's always great when a figure captures some of a character's personality. For Attack on Titan's Eren Yeager, that personality mostly consists of rage and combativeness. Kotobukiya's figure does a fine job showing Eren doing...

Kotobukiya unveils ARTFX J Levi from Attack On Titan photo
Kotobukiya unveils ARTFX J Levi from Attack On Titan
by Martin Siggers

We've sung the praises of Kotobukiya's ARTFX J version of Eren Jaeger to the high heavens - it's simply the most stunning Attack On Titan figure yet seen. Now though Kotobukiya is going to challenge themselves, as they've taken the wraps off of a matching version, this time of dour elder statesman Levi.

Still only a grey prototype at this stage, the early production can't hide the dynamism of the figure, which is posed even more extravagantly than Eren. Levi is bent nearly double as he leaps off his tree trunk base, swords in hand. As with Eren, there's a real sense of frantic movement, and the fine detailing is immense. Check out the way his jacket hangs off him, or great touches like the broken sword embedded in the tree base.

There's no further details to be had at this moment, but the Kotobukiya blog promises they'll show off a coloured sample as soon as possible. The shot of Eren and Levi posed alongside each other is a tantalising prospect for those who already have the first figure on order, and I'd have to imagine a lot of people will be sold on this preview alone. Does that include you readers?

Kotobukiya's ARTFX J Eren Jaeger soars to pre-orders
by Martin Siggers

Although there's been a colossal flood of Attack On Titan merchandise hitting the market, few figures have looked better or been more eagerly anticipated than Kotobukiya's ARTFX J version of protagonist Eren Jaeger. Well today the first part of the wait is over, as he's gone up for pre-order.

I said back when we saw him at Wonder Festival that I loved the grace and motion of the figure, and that's only more true now we see him in full colour. The pant job also brings out the wonderful intricacies in his clothing as well as that gorgeous base. Put simply, he's the best Attack On Titan figure yet and fans owe it to themselves to have him. Given the craft on display, ¥11,000 seems practically reasonable, and he'll come swinging into homes this August. Hit the links below before Titans (that is, other collectors) eat this one up.

Cu-Poche Mikoto Misaka is the ultimate in pocketable railguns photo
Cu-Poche Mikoto Misaka is the ultimate in pocketable railguns
by Tianxiao Ma

It's been a while since we heard about Kotobukiya's Cu-Poche Mikoto Misaka, but Akiba Hobby has a grand gallery up for your viewing. The articulation of the Cu-Poche design should lead to dynamic poses, which will make up somewhat for the plain character design.

The Railgun heroine will come with two effects pieces to reflect her powers, an iron (sand) sword, teddy bear, variant hair clip, and a handful of expressions on top. It looks like a pretty good package, so I'm looking forward to see what the figure community can do with her.
