MegaHobby Expo 2014 Autumn: Revolve

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

Dec 03
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

One prototype in particular made me squee
Dec 03
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 shows a lot of pieces of One Piece at Megahobby Expo

Trafalgar Law fans will be happy
Dec 03
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

The Naruto manga ends as MegaHouse adds more figures

Manga and movie represented at Megahobby Expo Autumn 2014

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

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
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

Hope there's treasure in that chest

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

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

Alter's Aliasse and her super bendy legs
Jun 02
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

You can find a sexy demon anywhere these days
