Pre-orders for Pop Culture Shock's Baraka open April 21

Pop Culture Shock's newest 1/4-scale Mortal Kombat 9 figure is the razor-toothed (and razor-armed) Baraka, and boy, does he look awesome. I'm not a big Baraka fan at all but the sculpt, especially that sinister toothy grin, l...

Now you can have your own three eyed raven to give you freaky dreams

The Game of Thrones TV show hasn't revealed much about the three-eyed raven, but it has played a significant role in the Song of Ice and Fire books so far. I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of this one now that the new se...

Homura beats the stuffing out of Kyubey in this figure photo
Homura beats the stuffing out of Kyubey in this figure
by Natalie Kipper

It's about time someone taught that albino talking squirrel-thing a thing or two! In Aniplex+'s latest 1/7-scale figure, Puella Magi Madoka Magica's Homura Akemi definitely looks determined (and dare I say, more than a little hardcore). With wisps of her time-traveling magic captured beautifully at the base combined with Homura's hair and outfit frozen in motion, the figure does an excellent job of capturing the magical girl's grace as she steps out into a battle. For those of you who don't dig girl-on-Incubator violence, it appears as though Kyubey can be removed from the figure. I kind of like that its there, though.

This figure unfortunately seems like it is exclusive to the Japanese Aniplex+ online store, where it costs ¥9,999 to pre-order. It is tentatively listed to ship in October of this year. So those wishing to purchase it have two choices: use a proxy service or hope that it will eventually come to the newly-launched USA store. Whatever you do, don't make a contract to get the figure. It isn't worth it; trust me.
