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

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

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...

The DigiWorld just got more adorable with G.E.M. TK and Kari

Well this is a great surprise! It was only about a month ago that MegaHouse announced they were following up their G.E.M. series Digimon figures of Tai (Taichi) and Matt (Yamato) with their younger siblings Kari (Hikari)...

Megahouse's Space Dandy and Honey are up for pre-order baby

OK, it might not be as delightfully continuity-baiting as Be@rbrick Dandy, but there's good news for Space Dandy fans who prefer their figures a little more traditionally styled. After popping up at MegaHobby Expo a few ...

Tokyo Toy Show: Megahouse's Youkai Watch figures

While Level-5's Youkai Watch no-showed at E3 this year (despite hopes it might pop up for North American gamers), but it sure didn't no-show Tokyo Toy Show. In fact, Megahouse had two Youkai Watch figures on display...

Demon Girl Astaroth is one sexy smurf

MegaHouse's 1/8-scale Excellent Model Astaroth is currently available for pre-order. The blue-skinned demoness (or demonette?) was apparently created for trading cards packaged with Shinra Bansho Chocolate Wafers (because not...

Pre-order Megahouse's Utena and begin the revolution
by Martin Siggers

Having seen her in colour at MegaHobby Expo (alongside the freshly revealed Anthy) we knew it was only a matter of time before Megahouse's take on iconic heroine Utena Tenjou went up for pre-orders. Now she's pre-orders have started to be listed (although curiously only at some stores - we'll update as more go live).

We also get some nice new promo shots. I must say I'm a touch concerned by some of the close up paint detail, but the overall sculpt and colour is so good I think I'll be putting my money down. Who among you is with me readers?

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: MegaHouse's Yato will certainly cost more than 5 photo
MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: MegaHouse's Yato will certainly cost more than 5
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

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 would be the not-a-cat tailed Hiyori because, you know, she's a girl and this is Japan. Not that I'm disappointed, I'm always happy to see companies, in this case MegaHouse, buck the trend every now and then. Well, he will be part of the G.E.M. series which is dominated by male characters...

Sculpting looks pretty good, but the obvious draw, besides being a decreasingly rare male figure, is the appearance of him floating in mid air. I'm a sucker for non-typical posing like this. He's shown with a bottle which could be sake or it could be miracle cure he got from some huckster, it's hard to tell when it comes to the former war god that will do any job from finding cats to cleaning bathrooms for ¥5. 

No real info on prize and release date just yet. I really hope they announce Hiyori and Yukine, if they did that I'd order for sure!

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring: MegaHouse's Astaroth gets painted

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: MegaHouse's Honey from Space Dandy in color

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...
