Funko has debuted its latest Hikari mold, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (Ghostbusters), with a "Burnt" deco reminiscent of the character's fate in the first film... and many of the video games. The mold itself is a mix of cut...

Sailor Mercury is revealed as the next Sailor Moon series Pullip

The brains of the Inner Senshi, Sailor Mercury, is joining Sailor Moon in the realm of Pullip dolls. This may just be me, but Mercury seems to look a lot better in this line than Moon does. Maybe it's the haircut. Groove also...

Pick up Funko's Pop! AJ Lee before she vanishes for several months to get married to Pop! CM Punk

ShopWWE.com has listed a Pop! AJ Lee. Fans will best recall AJ Lee as the vibrant, fun diva who held the WWE Divas Championship for a record-setting 295 days before dropping the title to newcomer (and then-NXT Women's Champion) Paige the night after Wrestlemania presumably so she could take some time off to get ready for her then-impending marriage to a wrestler described (often by himself) as being the best in the world. 

Funko's Pop! AJ Lee is currently available through the official WWE online store for US$15.

Pre-order Kotobukiya's swimsuited Saber so you can take it to the beach photo
Pre-order Kotobukiya's swimsuited Saber so you can take it to the beach
by Scarecroodle

Kotobukiya's 1/7-scale Fate/hollow ataraxia Saber swimsuit is currently available for pre-order.

Fate/hollow ataraxia is the visual novel follow-up to the hit Fate/stay night (later converted into a manga and anime) and, as such, the Saber depicted here (a.k.a. Arturia Pendragon) is the best known member of that particular servant class. While I'm generally not a fan of the various swim-suited Sabers, Kotobukiya did a fairly good job with this one. The pose is playful, the sculpting is solid, and the paint all looks great. Granted, the beach base looks a little hokey but it's a small quibble considering everything else that went right.

Kotobukiya's swim-suited Saber can be pre-ordered for around ¥7,800 and is slated for a January release. If you do pick one up, just don't take it to the beach. Salt-water can really mess up a figure's paint.

Pre-order Good Smile's Colossal Titan for a colossal price

Yesterday we saw Kahotan preview Good Smile Company's astonishing new Colossal Titan polystone statue, and we simultaneously cooed over the detail while ruminating over the surely epic price tag. Well, now pre-orders have beg...

Max Factory's Yamato is on board with pre-orders

Here's Max Factory's Yamato, in case you were wondering about Kantai Collection's take on the legendary battleship. I rather like the figure, except for the mismatched socks. My favorite piece would have to be her hair, espec...

S.H. Figuarts Alphamon slashes into pre-orders photo
S.H. Figuarts Alphamon slashes into pre-orders
by Scarecroodle

Bandai of Japan's Digimon offerings are apparently far from over, as pre-orders (through Bluefin Distribution) have opened for S.H. Figuarts Alphamon.

Alphamon apparently starred in Digital Monster X-Evolution (more commonly known as Digimon X-Evolution), the eighth Digimon film. The figure stands 17-centimeters tall (or 6.7-inches) and will apparently stand as tall as the previously released D-Arts (or S.H. Figuarts?) Omnimon/Omegamon. While I have no familiarity with the movie, it's certainly a neat design.

Bandai's S.H. Figuarts Alphamon can be pre-ordered for US$76 and is slated for a March release. However, there's still no word on a S.H. Figuarts Betamon.

Amakuni's new Asuka is a cut above photo
Amakuni's new Asuka is a cut above
by Martin Siggers

Amakuni have recently carved out a lucrative niche collaborating with Hobby Japan magazine, producing high quality exclusive figures for the publication. That collaboration doesn't look like it's about to stop anytime soon either, as today the two put their latest work up for order, an impressive 1/6 rendition of Asuka Langley Shikinami from Evangelion 3.33.

The posterior-emphasising pose is a little reminiscent of Alter's take on the same character, but Amakuni's version holds its own well through the addition of a distinctive long halberd, which I don't remember from the film but adds a unique touch. It's a nice pose, graceful yet relaxed and made more noticeable by the decision to use Asuka's new plugsuit from the film, and intriguing mess of red, purple and white which shouldn't really work but somehow does.

All in all it's a very cool take on one of the most-overexposed characters in the figure world, and I'm definitely pondering an order. As an exclusive, you know the drill - a high price tag plus the additional cost of a proxy, though in this case that's somewhat offset by the generous size of the figure. Asuka is available now at ¥11,000, and is expected to arrive next May.
