If figma Shimakaze isn't damaged enough for you, try the figFIX version

[Update: Check out Kahotan's preview!] I have the figma Shimakaze, and it's a nice figure. What it lacks, though, is the half-damaged version with strategically torn clothing. If that's something you really need on a figma-is...

Checking out this figma Flyboy Zombie preview gallery is a no-brainer
by Scarecroodle

Max Factor has released a preview gallery for its upcoming Dawn of the Dead figma "Flyboy" (pilot Stephen Andrews) Zombie which highlights alternate parts like a blood burst for the head, an interchangeable "exploded" leg, and an interchangeable head you can stick a machete in. Basically this figure features a LOT of spoilers for thirty+ year old films.

The original Dawn of the Dead is something of a classic (the new one was pretty cool as well, love that bedroom scene) and it's been cool (but also a little odd) to see it honored with this figma. Max Factory has really managed to capture some gruesome detail with the figure. I absolutely love the extreme blood drip all along the front of the figure and the choice of accessories are just too awesome. For all you horror-hounds out there, expect pre-orders to open in the very near future.

Also, my sincere apologies for everybody who was waiting to see this film. Although, in fairness, you probably should have seen it when it first came out on laser disc... or later when it came out on VHS... or even later when it came out on DVD... or when it was finally released on Blu-ray about seven years ago.

Fire all your cannons with Yamato Heavy Armament ver.

Kahotan's already previewed Max Factory's Yamato Light Armament ver. figure, so it goes without saying that the Yamato Heavy Armament ver. would get a preview, too! The 1/8-scale Heavy Armament ver. is part of the Wonder...

Max Factory's Yamato is on board with pre-orders

Here's Max Factory's Yamato, in case you were wondering about Kantai Collection's take on the legendary battleship. I rather like the figure, except for the mismatched socks. My favorite piece would have to be her hair, espec...

You aren't imagining things, this is really a figma Archer release gallery

Not a hoax and not a dream; figma Archer is really being released. In fact you may have already received your payment request for your pre-order. I fully expected months of delays, especially when it was realized it would be ...

Max Factory's Samurai goes up for pre-order again

I'm guessing quite a few people missed out on Max Factory's Samurai (sometimes called Katanako) the first time if aftermarket prices are any indication. This is a re-color rather than a straight up re-release, but if you stil...

Max Factory's Mikuzukin goes up for pre-order

The lovely Mikuzukin figure from Max Factory is up for pre-orders, merrily skipping along with a wolf on her head. I have a feeling this Miku design will be pretty popular. If you haven't already, you can check out the previe...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company - miscellaneous

Mikuzukin doesn't seem to be scared of wolves
by Tianxiao Ma

Last spotted at WonFes, Max Factory's Mikuzukin figure now has two proper previews. You can see some promo shots of her on the figma blog, and another gallery at Kahotan's Blog. I've been looking forward to this figure even before it got a paint job, and I'm not disappointed at all.

Mikuzukin (a portmanteau of Miku and Akazukin, the Japanese name for Red Riding Hood) is a design featured in Project Diva 2nd. It's a wonderful reinterpretation of Miku, putting her in an extremely cute outfit - and the skirt's just short enough to show the all-important zettai ryouiki. Jump on over to Kahotan's Blog or the official Max Factory preview to see all the little details. She'll be up for pre-order soon, and yeah... I'm getting in on that for sure!

[NSFW] Wonder Festival 2014 Summer - figFix Shimakaze kicks off new line

Wonder Festival saw Max Factory unveil a brand new line for the company - fixFix. As you might be able to guess from the name, it's a spin on their omnipresent figma line, but without the signature poseability. Instead, these...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company - Vocaloids

Now that we're seeing more and more creative takes on Vocaloid designs, I'm actually enjoying their presence. It looks like the days of the same boring Miku design being made over and over again are done with. Good Smile Comp...
