Fressia will be Kotobukiya's next Tony heroine

I'm always happy to see nice original character designs, though it's arguable how original this Freesia design is. She's the third in a similar series of designs for Kotobukiya's Tony Heroines Collection after Daisy and Annab...

Alter's Shinobu only gets cuter with gluttony

The Monogatari series went from quirky Shaft show to a powerhouse franchise, and Alter's cashing in with a Shinobu figure! I love Shinobu not just for her moe attributes, but also because she's secretly a badass. However the ...

Embrace Japan's newest demon is up for pre-order

I've been super pumped for this pre-order, and the time has finally come! This is the second iteration of Embrace Japan's Diabolus Inclinatus, an original character design by Sousi Hirose. Unlike the first figure, this "Desde...

Vertex's Yukari is ready to join your Dark Hour shenanigans

I don't know what it is about Yukari, but I really like her as a character. I was delighted to see that Vertex will be making a figure to go along with the Persona 3 movies coming out in theaters. The Spring of Birth was...

Sideshow features the brutish Igor in their video showcase

Iron Man 3 had a veritable smorgasbord of armors, which of course means plenty of fodder for Hot Toys' 1/6-scale line of Iron Man figures. Sideshow has recently uploaded a video of the Mark XXXVIII (38 to you non-Romans) arm...

Max Factory's Aoi Sakurai derails my heart

I've been feeling rather uninspired by 2015's pre-order outlook so far. It looks like Max Factory will come to my rescue with Rail Wars' Aoi Sakurai. Kahotan has a preview up of the 1/7-scale figure, and it's a cool design. T...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Alphamax

If you're into more developed women, Alphamax is a good manufacturer to look at. They mostly make borderline ecchi figures, although their SkyTube label has more explicit stuff. They had a handful of figures on display for Wo...

[NSFW] Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Embrace Japan

I'm often taken by Embrace Japan's original character designs. The build quality of their figures, though, tends to be pretty rough. But once again, they're showing off some great designs at WonFes and I'm itching to get my h...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Kotobukiya's anime and video game ladies

Kotobukiya isn't only about their Shunya Yamashita-designed Bishoujo series figures, in case you've forgotten. They also make, well, bishoujo figures... in the traditional sense. Kristina was able to get a load of photos from...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Here are all of Good Smile Company's scale figures

It's WonFes time, which means Good Smile Company (and associates) will be out with all guns blazing. As usual they've put up their Wonderful Hobby Life For You site with a summary of all the stuff they're showing off. I'm alw...

These Snow Miku previews should have everything you'd want to see

The upcoming Nendoroid Snow Miku (Snow Bell ver.) is a great design - one that works better as a Nendoroid than as a figma, I think. The proportions look just right as a Nendo, emphasizing her fancy head gear and cutting down...

Vertex teases a figure for WonFes

Unlike Good Smile Company, Vertex does not give you a 3x3 grid of colored squares and ask you to divine the figure being teased. This one's clearly Yukari Takeba from Persona 3. I'd recognize that pink cardigan and bow a...
