Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: G.E.M. Kakashi Anbu Ver.

For some reason, people used to really dig Anbu Kakashi. Maybe it was because of the stripped down design. Perhaps it was because it was part of mysterious character's even more mysterious past. Either way, I remember seeing ...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Good Smile's Natsu Dragneel

After I loved Lucy so much I was psyched for Good Smile Company to do more Fairy Tail figures and, like most people, assumed we'd get a sucession of the main ladies. But no, GSC have decided to throw us for a loop and in...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Vertex's Shinji and Kaworu

Vertex has a new sculpt they're showing off at WonFes, and it's of Evangelion's two boys, Shinji Ikari and Kaworu Nagisa. The two are apparently floating in mid-air, with Shinji looking a little bit dazed and Kaworu's arms ex...

Tomopop Review: Sentinel's BRAVE-ACT! Levi photo
Tomopop Review: Sentinel's BRAVE-ACT! Levi
by Rio McCarthy

Attack on Titan is a show that's taken the anime world by storm. Sadly, I have yet to sit down and watch it myself, but it's definitely on the to-do list! However, I can already tell just from reading a bit about it that Levi would be my favorite character out of the bunch. That snarky look on his face in this figure from Sentinel kind of just sealed that in for me.

Have you been looking to get your hands on a high quality piece based on the show? Well, h0it the jump, check out Sentinel's BRAVE-ACT! Levi below, and see what you think about this one!

Tomopop Review: Bandai's Figuarts ZERO Sanji Battle Ver. photo
Tomopop Review: Bandai's Figuarts ZERO Sanji Battle Ver.
by Pedro Cortes

One of my critiques with male figures are their boring poses. Like it or not, female figures tend to be posed in a variety of ways to direct attention toward their copious assets. Dudes just kind of stand there, usually with their legs slightly apart and with their hips jutting out. While that works for keeping a figure properly balanced, it doesn't do much to impress. As most One Piece figures are men, I have dozen's of figures that are well sculpted, if not impressive to look at.

One of the characters that deserves better is Sanji. The Straw Hats's chef only fights with his legs, leading to some impressive fights where he's flipping around and doing hand stands to deliver feet into his opponents' face. However, we usually get Sanji just standing around and looking either cocky or pervy. BORING.

Seemingly in response to such complaints, Bandai has released several battler versions of popular One Piece characters. This version of Sanji that I'm reviewing is from that line and boy, am I happy that somebody listened to my complaints. Hit the jump to see why you need this figure in your collection!

Stand up and pre-order Pulchra's Levi

Man, given that he's not the protagonist of Attack on Titan, Levi sure does seem to be getting a lot of figure love. Is it because of his deep and complex character? His interesting design which doesn't look at all like all t...

Hot Toys brings out another Loki, fans everywhere cheer! photo
Hot Toys brings out another Loki, fans everywhere cheer!
by Rio McCarthy

Alright guys and gals, if you didn't get enough of my fangirling over Loki the last time, here he comes again! Hot Toys is releasing a new figure of Loki based on the look from Thor: The Dark World. Cheeky Loki looks a bit more devious and upset this time around. He has over 30 points of articulation in this body as well!

He has 6 interchangeable hands, including: 1 pair of partially clenched palms, 1 pair of relaxed palms, 1 right palm for holding the dagger, and 1 left open palm. He, of course, comes with his full costume, as well as the previously mentioned dagger. He also comes with a pair of handcuffs with chains, legcuffs with chains, and a neck collar with chains. Looks like I'm not the only one who likes herself some Loki in devious ways. There is also the stand and nameplate that have the movie logo. Now, there is a special edition, only available in certain markets, that comes with a bonus accessory of a 1/6th scale Aether. It hasn't been listed as of yet as to where those markets are, but I'm sure we'll see.

He's set to come out somewhere in the later half of 2014, so get those pocketbooks ready and start saving. I personally like the first Loki figure better, and he's standing sexily among my figure collection. However, if you didn't get him the first time around, he'll be coming back to see you!

Have a full, delicious look at ALTAiR's Ren and Masato photo
Have a full, delicious look at ALTAiR's Ren and Masato
by Kristina Pino

It's been a few weeks since we finally saw Ren and Masato in their full-color glory, but alas, we were only able to admire them from the front! But ALTAiR have just updated their blog with more images and all is right with the world.

Of course, they both look absolutely fantastic. Masato comes with an extra face that gives him a more serious look, and Ren comes with a swoon-worthy smolder as his alternate expression. As expected of ALTAiR, all the other details look great.

In more good news, it looks like these two will be going up for pre-order this coming Wednesday, so fans won't have to wait too long now to reserve their pretty UtaPri boys. Are these bad boys on your list? Check the gallery for plenty of images to help you in that decision.
