Hunter x Hunter Hisoka photo

Here's a Hunter x Hunter Hisoka figure anyone can turn on

No, that's not clever lighting used to censor Hisoka's nether regions. That is, in fact, a red LED embedded in his crotch. When Hisoka is aroused everyone knows it thanks to the bright light that emanates from his loins so what better featu...

Premium Bandai gives you the tools to lead the Digidestined

Digimon is 15 years old and Premium Bandai knows how to celebrate! They could just do a bunch of figures and models and call it a day, but that wouldn't be enough. Instead they're doing a bunch of figures, a model, a cool Digivice, and gogg...

The Naruto manga ends as MegaHouse adds more figures

If you're like me then your week feels a little less complete after years of getting a weekly dose of the Naruto manga ended in November. Sure, I was satisfied with the ending (got my pairings!), but I still want more. Thankfully MegaHouse ...

Sakura Saber photo

Don't wait until the spring to view Sakura Saber

Fate/stay night's Saber has had many faces, but none as Japanese as Sakura Saber. If you're not familiar with Good Smile Company's latest take on Saber (first announced nearly a year ago!) don't feel bad, she comes from a rather obscure gag...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Art Spirits

Art Spirits likes to take things slow. After they first announced their To LOVEru Darkness Precious Collection Momo Belia Deviluke figure it took some seven months for them to finally reveal it. The same seems to be true with thei...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Broccoli

Broccoli apparently doesn't care if a series isn't a super popular anime or blockbuster game. Just having a following is enough for them. Just take visual novel series Amairo Islenauts as an example, it's getting its first figures ever...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Racing

Wouldn't be a Wonder Festival if Good Smile Company didn't bring along some Hatsune Miku figures for us. They pulled out all the stops with the latest race queen versions of Miku including no less than two figmas, some fun Nendoroids, and a...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kotobukiya SAO2 Sinon

I have to admit, watching the latest episode of Sword Art Online II I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Sinon isn't quite the emotionless ice queen she seemed to be up to now. She's actually has a rather normal and likeable side t...

She-Predator Machiko Noguchi to receive Premium Format figure

Sideshow has announced plans to add "She-Predator" Machiko Noguchi to its Premium Format figure line. Noguchi is a human who hunted alongside Predators in the Alien vs Predator comics. While the character's concept seems out outlandish, the...

Under the Radar: Miss Monochrome gets a Nendo for real

Hot Toys' Captain Harlock is out of this world

NYCC 2013: Tamashii Nations - misc. figures and role play

Tomopop Review: Phat! Company's 1/8 Meruru

Back in 1997 Gust Corporation introduced the world to the Atelier video game series. 16 years and 15 games (plus a few spin-offs) later the series has become a staple among JRPG fans. And yet, the series has been pretty light when it comes ...

Calen Ca Vocaloid photo

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 rather a distu...

X-Plus Lucy photo

X-Plus's swimsuit Lucy is more fantasy than Fairy Tail

X-Plus's Fairy Tail Lucy Heartfilia Swimsuit Version is currently available for pre-order. This buxom 1/8-scale beauty is clad in a heart-themed bikini. X-Plus's swimsuit Lucy has a lot of good angles, so much so that I'm wondering if there...

Kidrobot takes orders on new mini Dam Gun bot mascots

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I'm not so sure how flattered Bandai is by this, but Kidrobot certainly seems sincere in their attempt to merge the worlds of Gunpla and designer figures. They're new project, playfully ...

Marika Katou photo

Scans reveal Amakuni's Marika Katou is almost here

I don't really get it. Bodacious Space Pirates was a real hit when it aired back in 2012. And yet, despite a plucky cast of female characters (oh, there were some guys there, too), it didn't get a lot of interest on the merchandise side. Th...

Good Smile Company reveals new Nendoroid costume project

Think for a moment; what hasn't Good Smile Company done with Nendoroids yet? We've had various stands, diorama rooms, add-on parts, and even vehicles. The only thing they haven't done is is a line of costumes for your favorite Nendoroids. U...

UC Calne Ca photo

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Union Creative Calne Ca

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 rath...
