Not the service you'd expect
You know, there's something to be said about the harem show. Sure, they're usually puerile, insipid and lacking in any sort of redeeming value. Yes, they usually rely on fanservice in lieu of good animation or solid design. Y... read feature

A rundown of your non-Sailor Moon and DBZ figures
So we've gone through and covered Sailor Moon, Tamashii Buddies and Dragon Ball Z ... that can't be all of Tamashii Nations' SDCC offerings, can it? Not in the least, as many of their other licenses got a chance to shine... read feature

SDCC: Tamashii DBZ

SDCC 2014: Tamashii Nations - Dragon Ball Z


Jul 27
Tamashii Nations have done a fairly decent job catering to Dragon Ball Z fans with their Figuarts lines, and this year's San Diego Comic Con was no different. Broly pretty much stole the show on the S.H. Figuarts side of... read
Still waiting on that Figuarts Tuxedo Mask
It wasn't too hard to spot the Sailor Moon merchandise in Bluefin/Tamashii Nations' booth this year, with plenty of folks gathered around the cases, snapping photos of the figures inside. All eight currently announced S.... read feature

SHF Batman/Joker

Fight it out over S.H. Figuarts Batman and Joker


It'd be an Injustice if these were terrible
Jul 08

Well now, didn't expect this at all

A somewhat expensive, but totally worth it trip down memory lane
