SDCC 2014: Union Creative

I didn't expect to see a ton of Japanese figure makers at SDCC, but I'm glad Union Creative showed up. They had a small display next to AAA Anime's booth, but it had some figures worth seeing. There wasn't much in terms of new figures, but getting a chance to see some finished products in person was pretty reassuring to me.

Union Creative tries their hand at gravity bending

The underrated PS Vita game Gravity Rush (Gravity Daze in Japan) features two things I really like: mind-screwy gameplay and a great heroine. Union Creative will be making a PVC figure of Kat (or Kitten) featuring her ca...

Set your sights on pre-ordering Akane Tsunemori

Being a big fan of Gen "The Butcher" Urobuchi's work, I'm always reminded of my slacking off when Psycho-Pass comes up. I've heard nothing but good things past a bit of a slow start, but I've yet to find the time to settle do...

The most terrifying Vocaloid returns for pre-orders

When we first and last saw Union Creative's Calne Ca figure her horrifying visage was on display at Wonder Festival 2013 Summer back in July. I know I said it before, but it's worth repeating that this isn't Miku Hatsune, but...

I don't know if this falls into the area of 'things you never thought would be made into a figure' or 'things you wonder why they weren't a figure sooner'. Now I know what you're thinking, but rest assured, that's not Hatsune Miku, but rather a horrifying robot skeleton with a soft Miku-shaped outer shell. Yeah, I'm not actually sure if that's better or not. 

Still, "she" makes for one heck of an eye-catching piece. She's got that big, scythe-like right arm, that skeletal left arm, and those big, awkward looking legs. But her most grotesque feature of all is probably the metal fingers sticking out from where her mouth should be. She's certainly got a unique design that's sure to stand out among a sea of Miku figures. 

Union Creative is making her in two varieties. Not only will you be able to get her in her straight-up Miku outfit, but also a white and pink nurse costume version. That's one heck of a fetish. Sadly, these two official figures are two more official figures than Kasane Teto has gotten.

These new Fate/Zero prize figures were pretty inevitable

Just when I thought the Fate franchise could get a breather, and I wouldn't have to see a new Saber every other day, Fate/Zero comes out and ruins my hopes and dreams. Despite this, I do appreciate the aesthetic of Fate/Zero ...
