All the figures you're still waiting on pre-orders for
Apr 14
Back in February we got our first look at a bunch of new figma from Max Factory, Phat!, and FREEing. Since then we really haven't heard a whole lot outside of an occasional appearance here and there. While there's nothing her... read

Good stuff from the WonHobby 21 site

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... read

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Relax with FREEing's 1/4 Bunny Yoko

1/4 scale Gurren Lagann gal will take up some serious shelf space
Feb 08
There's really no shortage of Yoko figures from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann so it's always a welcome sight to see something a little different. Wait, did I say little? FREEing is ready to take up some massive shelf real estate... read

Kyoko Sakura is festival ready

Pre-order this magical girl today
Jan 15
Eventually, all anime figures end up in a yukata. Kyoko, professional snacker and reluctant magical girl, is no exception. Standing at just under 8 inches, this PVC figure features the magical girl in a red yukata accented wi... read

Hop to it for FREEing's Yukata Mikoto Misaka.

FREEing has found big success in their recent forays into Yukata figures, and A Certain Scientific Railgun remains a perennial merchandise favourite. It's hardly surprising therefore that the two have crossed paths, with... read

figma the Thinker can't sit still for this gallery

Most articulated statue you'll ever find
Oct 10
Statues aren't supposed to move, but don't tell FREEing that. Their new figma based on Rodin's 1902 masterpiece is all about the ROM (range of motion). Being essentially a naked figma (and I do mean naked), and of the 2.0 var... read

FREEing Houki Shinonono

FREEing's Houki Shinonono is pretty foxy

Also in a massive 1/4-scale
Sep 11
I've not kept up with Infinite Stratos but its cast sure has gotten a lot of figures. I rather like FREEing's 1/4-scale Houki, mostly because of the way her expression works with those fox ears. Very cute indeed. If you want ... read

Maybe the tan makes her go faster?

Kahotan's newest preview happens to be a face we've seen before: FREEing's Racing Miku Sepang version. There aren't a ton of revelations in her preview, but we do get at least a nice shot of her torso, showing off some of the... read

Not a WonFes without some Mikus

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: FREEing

Summer Festival at Wonder Festival
Jul 27
FREEing definitely know a good thing when they see it, as their booth was packed with their popular range of yukata-clad ladies. It seems like paired sets are the new hotness in FREEing's world. For me the highlight here is d... read
Miku photo
Although you may be hearing the starting pistol a little late
FREEing's 1/8-scale Racing Miku Sepang Version is currently available for pre-order. The figure features Vocaloid mascot Hatsune Miku in what might be her oddest racing attire thus far, although I'm sure it's a bar others may... read feature

Third Time's the charm?

FREEing Laura Bodewig photo
I'm sensing a theme with FREEing's releases...
The thought of a sexy 1/4-scale figure is appealing to me, but in practice very few of them have designs that I like. FREEing will be releasing this 1/4-scale Laura Bodewig this December, and I'm on the fence about it. Laura'... read feature

FREEing Tsukiko photo
It's amusing when someone's trying to take off two articles of clothing at the same time
FREEing's Tsukiko has shipped out, prompting Kahotan to make a little release gallery for the figure. She especially likes the strawberry pattern on her panties, and the fact that the skirt isn't fixed in place. You can ... read feature
