At last, someone's making an Annie Leonhart figure that I can't have

This month's scans had a pair of Wonder Festival exclusives from Medicom Toy's RAH line: Annie Leonhart and Mami Tomoe. Annie certainly looks cool and collected. Although she comes with two face plates, it's difficult to tell...

Dish out some vigilante justice with RAH Hit Girl

Kick-Ass probably isn't in the public consciousness right now so I find it a bit odd that Medicom would be releasing another RAH Hit Girl. The first Hit Girl was based on her Kick-Ass 2 look, where the character is also a bit...

It's no Joker - Scans reveal Real Action Heroes Kamen Rider Double

After I had a disappointing experience with Real Action Heroes recently I swore I wouldn't be suckered back into the range any time soon. But damn it, Medicom Toy seemingly know all my weaknesses, as scans have revealed they'...

Tomopop Review: Real Action Heroes Link photo
Tomopop Review: Real Action Heroes Link
by Martin Siggers

I've got a real soft spot for Real Action Heroes Link. Not only because, like many people, I dearly love The Legend of Zelda, but because he was one of the first major pieces of news I covered after I joined the site. As such, I've eagerly awaited his arrival, which has taken more than a year thanks to pesky delays.

I wasn't the only one though, as our Reviews Editor, Rio McCarthy, has also been hyped to see Link arrive on her doorstep. So now that he's here in all his really expensive glory, we figured we would sit down and talk about everything we liked and disliked about the Hero of the Sky.

Medicom updates with first RAH Ultimate Madoka gallery photo
Medicom updates with first RAH Ultimate Madoka gallery
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

First seen live only last week we're now getting some official images straight from Medicom of Ultimate Madoka from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. She's looking mighty impressive under the right lighting. Her flowing dress is quite magnificent with the inside completely blacked out in peppered with stars. Not only are we given a closeup look at her happy, smiley face, but also of her previously unseen  angry face. Plus we're given a look at the articulation hidden in both her wings and her hair. 

Medicom has also revealed the release details for the first time. As expected she won't be cheap, priced at ¥33,000. But that's OK, you've got nearly a year to save up as she won't be released until a very distant February 2015. Can't rush greatness.

RAH Ryuko is ready for poseable action!

The Medicom Toy Blog gave me a nice little gallery to lust over this week, and of course it stars Ms. Ryuko Matoi from Kill la Kill. I'm so excited to get my hands on the Real Action Heroes Ryuko, but even more so after seein...

Tomopop LinkUP: March madness

Why is March such a painful month for us? It seems like every march we get bombarded with a  bunch of cool stuff that we all want all at once. Do companies think that we've recovered from the holidays by now and can affo...

Dust off this Real Action Heroes Levi preview photo
Dust off this Real Action Heroes Levi preview
by Martin Siggers

Medicom is spoiling us with Real Action Heroes recently. Rio took a look at the lovely Ryuko Matoi earlier today, so it's only fair I level the battle of the sexes by presenting this equally stunning rendition of Levi from Attack On Titan. The good people over at the Amiami blog had a chance to go up close and personal and show off what you're getting.

With their cool looking uniforms, cloaks, and incredibly elaborate maneuver gear, the Attack On Titan cast were pretty much born to be added to the Real Action Heroes range, and Levi doesn't disappoint, looking just as great as Mikasa before him. Aside from his usual dour expression we've also got...his usual dour expression with his eyes shifted to the right. Yeah, that seems like a pretty big waste, but his third face, bug eyed and ruffle haired, is a great one, so let's let it slide.

Perhaps the coolest detail is that the initial production run will include bonus accessories in the form of Levi's cleaning hat, bandanna and dusters, basically giving you an entire second outfit. That's what I call a tempting pre-order incentive. Levi will go up for order on the 24th, and yes, that's the same day as Ryuko. Lovers of Real Action Heroes, brace your wallets for when the pair arrive in November.

Medicom's RAH Ryuko Matoi is looking lovely! photo
Medicom's RAH Ryuko Matoi is looking lovely!
by Rio McCarthy

Why hello there, Ryuko - if it isn't my favorite butt kicker in a current anime series! Medicom Toy's Real Action Heroes Ryuko Matoi Senketsu ver. was a huge hit at Wonder Festival 2014 Winter this year, as it should have been, and it looks like we'll be able to get our pre-orders in for her soon. They nailed her spot on in my book, and I can't wait to have this lovely lady sitting next to me on my desk.

AmiAmi Blog had a post reviewing the details of the figure, and it looks wonderful, especially getting to see all of the details up close. I don't think there is a single thing I dislike about this figure. It's going to retail for right around US$200, and should be going up for pre-order on February 24th in Japan. However, it won't be seeing shelves until some time in November 2014. At least we already know it looks this good in color!

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Real Action Heroes Ryuko

The Kill la Kill love fest keeps on rolling! After the show made a big splash in the figma and Nendoroid world, it's no surprise to see Medicom Toy jump in and recruit it to the Real Action Heroes range. They're kicking ...
