FuRyu's Mikasa Ackerman is finally previewed

A little over a month ago, we had just a peek at this Mikasa figure when we had a look at her partner in plastic, Eren. And it's about time, too, since she's due for release in June. Check out the gallery for some pictures fr...

Miku Type 2020 is almost here, looking gorgeous photo
Miku Type 2020 is almost here, looking gorgeous
by Martin Siggers

We were stunned by her first appearance at Wonder Festival last July, and now nine months later Kahotan has put out word that Max Factory's terrific Hatsune Miku Type 2020 is shipping out to lucky buyers. To celebrate the occasion, we've been gifted a preview gallery that confirms she's still as pretty as ever.

As anyone who's ever read any of my articles knows I'm obsessed with the portrayal of movement in figures and this is one of the best examples I've ever seen. The way her train flows out behind her, the ribbons on her wrists and ankles, and of course those colossal twin tails of hair - it all adds up to one great looking figure (and at 1/7 scale pretty huge too). Are any of you lucky readers awaiting her arrival?

[UPDATED] Good Smile Company's Mio Honda has stars in her ears photo
[UPDATED] Good Smile Company's Mio Honda has stars in her ears
by Martin Siggers

[Update: Pre-orders are up! Click the links below to get her] 

Good Smile Company have really been knocking it out of the park with their iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls figures lately. Even though I'm an avowed non-fan of the series I've really been digging some of the recent figures like Uzuki Shimamura. Now it's Mio Honda's turn to join the troupe, done up in her 'New Generation' look.

She's looking pretty good too. I'm a big fan of the orange and red colour scheme, although perhaps slightly less so of the pose. It's fine, just a bit generic is all. The base  is a nice bonus too. As ever GSC's eye for detail is up to scratch, be it the glossy finish on her boots or the delightful star shaped charms she's got scattered about her person. It's a pretty loud, brash figure, but I'm going to guess that's pretty in keeping with the character.

All in all it definitely looks like another winner. Pre-orders are up now at a not-unreasonable ¥8,380 and she'll be on your own personal stage come October

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.

This preview should make you feel pretty good about Kotobukiya's Eren Yeager photo
This preview should make you feel pretty good about Kotobukiya's Eren Yeager
by Tianxiao Ma

It's always great when a figure captures some of a character's personality. For Attack on Titan's Eren Yeager, that personality mostly consists of rage and combativeness. Kotobukiya's figure does a fine job showing Eren doing his thing.

I love the dynamic pose, his determined expression, and the use of the tree stump as a base. The paint and detailing look spot-on as well. Amiami has a large preview gallery showing Eren from all angles and showing the removable cape. If you have him on order, looks like you won't be regretting it!

Plex tackles a Titan

It looks like even Plex will be cashing in on the Attack on Titan cow, because they've updated their DPCF/UMCF listings with an entry for a prototype Colossus Titan wrecking a bit of wall. As a part of the UMCF line, this mon...

Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: Cu-Poche Rikka Takanashi

Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: A little donut-loving Nendoroid vampire

Nendoroid Shinobu has been on my radar for a while, and looks to be a winner. Her more animated, post-Bakemonogatari form is perfect for Nendo-fication (disregarding a certain uncomfortable bathing scene). The version at Miyazawa Model Expo is still unpainted, but she still has that melts-your-heart cuteness. This is one Kahotan preview I'm really looking forward to! [via Hobby Search's Twitter]
