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...

Tomopop Review: Portrait of Pirates Crocodile Repaint Ver.
by Pedro Cortes

Over the years of my figure collecting, Megahouse's Portrait of Pirates line has remained my favorite series of figures. Based off of characters from the immensely popular One Piece, the figures tend to be excellent representations of guys and gals that you love, or at least love to hate.

After tearing through all the heroes, Megahouse started to release P.O.Ps of high-tier antagonists and villains. Of note was the release of Crocodile, the leader of the organized crime organization known as Baroque Works and generally a pretty big jerk. Being my favorite villain, I wanted to nab him during his first release, but financial issues prevented me buying him.

Thanks to a re-release earlier in 2014 and the kind folks at HLJ, I finally have the evil pirate in my hands. How does this repainted re-release compare to modern P.O.P. expectations? Well, you'll have to hit the jump to find out!

Tomopop Review: Alpha x Omega's Yzak Jule photo
Tomopop Review: Alpha x Omega's Yzak Jule
by Andres Cerrato

It's been a while for Megahouse's line of Gundam SEED figures. Opening first with G.E.M. Athrun Zala, then the figure of the songstress with the really long initials, RAHDXG.A.NEO Lacus Clyne, then actual main character G.E.M. Kira Yamato. The line finally comes to a hastened close with Alpha x Omega Yzak Jule. All lines aside, Megahouse has put in some great work in putting out figures for the 10th anniversary of SEED and Yzak is in a place to continue that tradition.

Find out how this figure fares in today's review of Alpha Omega Yzak Jule!

Pre-orders are afoot for Megahouse's Amy

I'm torn on this newest release from Megahouse. I loved Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet and feisty heroine Amy was one of my favourite characters. This figure of her (aside from being pretty much the only full siz...

Preview gallery of Megahouse's Sorceress looks a bit sleepy

After going up for pre-order in early March, we now have an extended gallery of Dragon's Crown's Sorceress, as envisioned by Megahouse. Big surprise, she's still rather busty and ridiculously proportioned. On top of that, she...

MegaHouse's Sorceress goes up for pre-order

Looks like tonight is boob night. Anyway, I'm pleased to report that MegaHouse's Sorceress is going up for pre-orders right now. I might actually like the back of this figure more than the front. The paint and sculpt look gre...
