Travel some dungeons with Alter's Alisia Heart

How we got from To Heart to this is a mystery to me. Anyway, this is Alisia Heart, a character featured in Dungeon Travelers 2. As you can see, Alter has made a magnificent figure of her. I'm sure this is an exact replica in ...

Give Shimakaze a friend: figma Amatsukaze goes up for pre-order

Amatsukaze is one of the cuter Kantai Collection designs that I've seen, and she pushes a lot of the same buttons as Shimakaze does. Their respective designs have a lot of parallels including their outrageously short skirts (...

Funko releases product images for Game of Thrones Legacy series 2; available for pre-order
by Scarecroodle

Funko has released some product images for its currently available for pre-order Game of Thrones Legacy series 2. The selection includes some much-wanted selections like the ever-popular Arya Stark, Robb Stark (direwolf head sold separately?), Jaime Lannister (in Kingsguard armor), Khal Drogo, another Daenerys, and Brienne of [expletive deleted (spoilers)] Tarth.

This second series fleshes out the line rather nicely, especially for giving the Hound his sidekick. The craftsmanship on this series looks a bit nicer than the first wave, with some really cool detailing on Jaime's armor and a neat Brienne of Tarth. However, given Game of Thrones' gigantic cast, I'm wondering if Funko will be able to get to everybody especially considering that a few of the characters may need variants (and I don't just mean a more wolfy Robb Stark, although that would make for a twisted con exclusive).

All of the figures from Funko's Game of Thrones Legacy series 2 can be pre-ordered individually for US$20 and are slated for an almost-upon-us October release.

Jellykoe's NYCC-exclusive flexes some muscle photo
Jellykoe's NYCC-exclusive flexes some muscle
by Natalie Kipper

[Update: Each plush will cost US$50.]

Jellykoe announced their con-exclusive for New York Comic-Con, which starts in just a few short weeks. Hailing from their Tox City line, meet the beefed-up rabbit-thing, Musclebuns! Standing an impressive 19-inches tall, he features weighted, articulated arms and, like all the Tox City plushes, has glow-in-the-dark eyes.

I was already a fan of Jellykoe's Tox City plushes and love their style. Musclebuns is definitely carrying on the fun, inventive look the couple is known for. I honestly adore everything about this guy but if I had to narrow it down to one thing specifically, I'd choose his face. The expression of carefree cluelessness with a pinch of "derpiness" is just so endearing. The dude was just mutated and he seems totally fine with it. 

Musclebuns is handmade and limited to 10 pieces, which are available for purchase at Jellykoe's booth #413 at The Block. Who is planning on attending NYCC?

Black Butler's Sebastian is simply one hell of an awesome RAH figure photo
Black Butler's Sebastian is simply one hell of an awesome RAH figure
by Natalie Kipper

Sebastian Michaelis of Black Butler was recently revealed to be the latest in Medicom Toy's Real Action Heroes line of figures. AmiAmi Blog's preview highlighted the demon-turned-butler's accessories and various poses. He comes with three interchangeable facial expressions (neutral with a slight smirk, winking, and a sideways glance) and two different hair parts (normal and swept to the side). That's not even mentioning the whole set of of cutlery (fans know why),  the tea set with tray, and the candelabra plus two interchangeable sets of hands to hold them all.

And while that is all very impressive, I was most blown away by the detail in Sebastian's outfit. They even got his pocket watch and his gloves and tailcoat are removable! The subtly different tones in fabric were also a lovely touch. I'm not going to lie; if I were to buy a RAH, Sebastian would be the one. But like all figures in the Real Action Heroes series, they are darn expensive. Sebastian will set you back ¥23,760. He is listed on AmiAmi right now but the pre-order won't go live until midnight Japan Time on September 24. RAH Sebastian Michaelis is estimated to ship in late June 2015.
