I'm completely unfamiliar with Revolve or most of the characters they had on display at their MehgaHobby Expo booth, but their painted figure of Chu Feng's Liu Li is stunning. Yes, she looks like a bee and that "stinger" of h... read
Kotobukiya's MegaHobby Expo 2014 Autumn offerings weren't too big on the new announcement side of things, but fans of Black Butler ~Book of Circus~ should be pleased. Not only were Sebastien and Ciel there, but so w... read
I've been feeling lukewarm about Alter's showings at events lately, but that changed when I saw what they brought to MegaHobby Expo. There's still the usual bishoujo/bishounen figures I don't really care for, but there were a... read
MegaHouse showed off the finished sculpts for the remaining Digimon Adventures DigiDestined at Megahobby Expo Autumn 2014. What started with Tai and Matt in 2014 and continued with Kari and T.K. looks to be possibly wrapping ... read
Once again One Piece was the number one manga in sales in Japan for 2014 so it's no wonder why MegaHouse couldn't show any restraint when displaying OP figures at Megahobby Expo Autumn 2014. Some of these we've seen before, b... read
If you're like me then your week feels a little less complete after years of getting a weekly dose of the Naruto manga ended in November. Sure, I was satisfied with the ending (got my pairings!), but I still want more. Thankf... read
Another event! Hot damn, you've got to love the summer months. All of you favorite companies are ganging up to show you the toys that you're going to drool over during the summer months. Then, of course, try to figure out how to pay for sai... read feature
Apart from a random Jubei figure here and there, I haven't seen much Hyakka Ryoran activity. I think Alter is the only manufacturer that ever really gave the franchise any attention (I guess Hobby Japan too). At MegaHobby Exp... read
MegaHobby Expo had a number of new Alter prototypes on display, including this Mefmera from Dungeon Travelers 2. I don't know anything about the game, but this figure is rather pretty.
From all the Rage of Bahamut figures tha... read
Some figures can be encapsulated with a single word. I think the word for this one is "bendy." This is Alter's version of Aliasse, a character from Valkyria Chronicles 2. As you can tell by her gear, she's a Valkyria - a warr... read
Kotobukiya's Attack on Titan line is steadily growing. With Eren and Mikasa already up for pre-order, it was logical to assume the previously-revealed Levi would be coming next.
A few shots of the painted prototype arose from... read
Take Noragami's main character home to do some odd jobs I have to admit I'm a little surprised that the first figure released for the anime series Noragami is the main character Yato. I know that seems a little strange to say, but come on, it's a guy. I was really sure the first w... read feature

I like when figure makers find cool original or underrepresented character designs instead of going with what's popular, but this Astaroth figure from MegaHouse completely slipped under my radar.
Astaroth is a character featu... read
When asked what his sin was, Captain Mal Reynolds once said "Ah hell... I'm a fan of all seven!" I like to imagine he actually had these sins in mind because that would be a grand mental image.
Unlike Captain Reynolds, I'm no... read

We just saw her in the magazine scans, but now Honey is sweet as can be in person with her new color job. Hobby Search tweeted a picture of how she looks at MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring, and I think I actually giggled with glee... read

MegaHouse is showing off their prototype for Suisei no Gargantia's Amy at MegaHobby Expo. This one is based on some art depicting Amy and Grace in the act of drying off. From the prototype, though, Grace does look to be in mo... read
Shining Ark's Sakuya seems to be a busy lady, as she's assumed a wide variety of forms throughout the series. This latest prototype by Kotobukiya has her in her Seraphim form, which is just beautiful.

Though I've never seen Bodacious Space Pirates (the unfortunate English title for Mouretsu Pirates), I am fond of the design for protagonist Marika Katou. It's 99% pirate-y flair with only a hint of seifuku-wearing schoolgirl... read
We've known for a few months now that Megahouse was working on a figure of Utena Tenjou from Revolutionary Girl Utena to add to their G.E.M. range, but up until now all we've had to go on was a silhouette. At Megahobby E... read

A single image of MegaHouse's Amazon has appeared! Well, there might be more, but I haven't found them yet. Anywho, Tian had a quick look at her in the magazine scans earlier, but now we've got a proper "in the flesh" image. ... read
