Upcoming figures from Alter, MegaHouse
It's late fall so you know what that means: MegaHobby Expo time! I'm always hyped to see what kind of new stuff is coming soon (or in Alter's case, much later). Let this be a reminder for all of you to start saving up! Here's...


Megahobby Expo 2015 Autumn: Megahouse

The mouse of House
Nov 29
// Chris Seto
Given the name of the event, it's no surprise that Megahouse had one of the larger exhibitions on display and there were quite a variety of figure lines as well. They continue to milk the childhood of 90s fans with more digim...

Megahobby Expo 2015 Autumn: Alter

the Power of the Ahego
Nov 29
// Chris Seto
I'm afraid I can't tell you why Megahouse would think that it is autumn despite being a stones throw away from December but it's their event so they can call it whatever they like! Interestingly, a few of the larger, non-good...
Love Live! photo
No trick; all treat
Megahouse and Alter will be teaming up again with their Alpha x Omega collaboration to reveal a new Love Live! Eli Ayase figure at Megahobby Expo 2015 Autumn on November 28. The official Love Live! website reports that the fi...

MegaHobby Expo 2015 Spring: Hobby Japan

For those of you looking for boobs
May 31
// Tianxiao Ma
Hobby Japan often caters to the more salacious crowd, and I'm getting a bit of that from their display at MegaHobby Expo. Unfortunately a lot of these will likely be Hobby Japan exclusives, so actually buying them can be a tr...

MegaHobby Expo 2015 Spring: Revolve

All Hail China!!
May 30
// Chris Seto
Revolve is a company which is still in its infancy (just one release under their belts so far) but their figures are still making small waves by looking rather good and covering titles which other companies don't really cover...

MegaHobby Expo 2015 Spring: Alter

All work, but there is some play!
May 30
// Chris Seto
The Spring MegaHobby Expo has just recently concluded and it looks like all the figure companies are giving a final push for their soon-to-be-released figures to make way for all new announcements at Wonder Festival but even ...

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Autumn: Revolve

Couldn't come up with a bee pun, so just enjoy the sculpts
Dec 05
// Brian Szabelski
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...

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Autumn: Kotobukiya

My, that's a mighty nice chainsaw you have there ...
Dec 03
// Brian Szabelski
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...

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Autumn: Alter

One prototype in particular made me squee
Dec 03
// Tianxiao Ma
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...

Digimon Megahobby Expo

MegaHouse rounds out the remaining Digimon DigiDestined at Megahobby Expo

Hail, hail, the gangs all here
Dec 03
// Jeremy Emerje Crocker
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 ...
One Piece Megahobby Expo photo
One Piece Megahobby Expo

MegaHouse shows a lot of pieces of One Piece at Megahobby Expo

Trafalgar Law fans will be happy
Dec 03
// Jeremy Emerje Crocker
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...

The Naruto manga ends as MegaHouse adds more figures

Manga and movie represented at Megahobby Expo Autumn 2014
Dec 02
// Jeremy Emerje Crocker
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...

Alter Inshun Houzouin

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: Inshun Houzouin is all about spears and butts

If I write about butts enough, maybe I'll get some converts for the cause
Jun 02
// Tianxiao Ma
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...

Alter Mefmera

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: Travel through some dungeons with Mefmera

Hope there's treasure in that chest
Jun 02
// Tianxiao Ma
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...

Alter Aliasse

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: A full-blooded Valkyria joins the battle

Alter's Aliasse and her super bendy legs
Jun 02
// Tianxiao Ma
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...

Kotobukiya Levi

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: Kotobukiya's Levi wants your house spotless

Or he wants to cut you up, I don't know
Jun 02
// Tianxiao Ma
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...
MegaHobby Yato photo
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...

Alter Black Heart photo
They just felt like it, OK?
We've seen Hyperdimension Neptunia figures and merchandise for the game and anime series from a number of figure companies like Wing and quesQ, now Alter is ready to make their first jump into the franchise. They're finally r...


MegaHobby Expo Spring 2014: Time to take over the world with School Uniforms!

...It was probably going to happen sooner or later!
May 31
// Chris Seto
In a bit of a surprise twist, Megahouse announced a new line of figures at Megahobby Expo in the shape of the World Uniform Operation. Essentially, they plan on releasing figures of characters in their respective school unifo...

MegaHouse Astaroth

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: MegaHouse's Astaroth gets painted

You can find a sexy demon anywhere these days
May 31
// Tianxiao Ma
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...

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: Orchid Seed isn't afraid of deadly sins

A new Leviathan figure and my mixed reactions
May 31
// Tianxiao Ma
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...

Oh look a sketch
May 31
// Tianxiao Ma
DRAMMAtical Murder fans got a nice one-two punch this weekend with a pair of announcements. First, Good Smile Company announced via Facebook that they'll be re-releasing Max Factory's Aoba figure. This decision was inspi...

GEM Anthy Himemiya

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: G.E.M. series Anthy Himemiya from Revolutionary Girl Utena

Nice butts seem to be a trend this time around
May 31
// Rio McCarthy
How many of you watched the hell out of Revolutionary Girl Utena back in the day? Well, with seeing this new prototype of Anthy Himemiya, it's definitely wanting to make me go back and watch it again. It's been several y...

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: MegaHouse's Honey from Space Dandy in color

In color and in person, what more could you ask for?
May 31
// Rio McCarthy
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...

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: Alter's Blazblue -Alter Memory- Mu-12

Look at that nice prototype booty, but check out that base!
May 30
// Rio McCarthy
Wow, I never thought I'd be super excited by a Mu-12 figure, but you know what? Alter has officially sold me on this one! Based on Blazblue -Alter Memory- this Mu-12 looks ready to kick some butt, and has an incredible base m...
Alter Asuka Jersey ver. photo
I'll be keeping my eye on this one
It's been a slow week for PVC news, but I am glad that Akiba Hobby posted this particular gallery. Alter had a few enticing items on display at MegaHobby Expo this past fall, including a new figure of Asuka sporting her Evang...

MegaHobby Expo: Autumn - Amy and Grace loitering around

Looks like they took a splash
Nov 30
// Tianxiao Ma
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...

MegaHobby Expo: Autumn - A seraphim descends upon us

Continuing the conga line of identities this character has assumed
Nov 30
// Tianxiao Ma
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. I'm a big fan of angel g...
