2015 Snow Bell Miku gets both a Nendoroid and figma!
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Snow Miku Snow Bell ver. is cute. Like, beyond belief adorably cute. Way too cute to be left as just a single figure so Good Smile Company and Max Factory are spreading the love. 2015 will be the first year were a new Snow Miku design will be used for both a new Nedoroid and a new figma! Ah, they're so great, and I'm glad we're finally getting a figma that isn't just a repaint of another Miku. Both figures will also be accompanied by their own little Yukine bunny figure.

Details are pretty light at the moment, though I'm sure we won't have to wait too long before we see and learn more about these figures. Of course they'll be available at Wonder Festival 2015 (Winter) on February 8 when we'll all have the opportunity to place an order online! As a special treat they're also adding Snow Bell Miku to the Hatsune Miku Project Diva arcade game.

AD-31 Optimus Prime is the figure we should have started with

At this point Transformers fans have come to learn one constant when it comes movie figures: never by the launch releases. I mean, we buy them anyway, we can't help ourselves, but we do so knowing that at some point an even b...

figma the Thinker can't sit still for this gallery

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...

S.H.Figuarts Sasuke Uchiha gets some new shots photo
S.H.Figuarts Sasuke Uchiha gets some new shots
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

You've probably already heard by now, but the Naruto manga is now in it's final weeks, set to end at the beginning of November. Seems like bad timing for Bandai to be releasing Naruto figures, that might have a little something to do with Sasuke here being a Tamashii Web exclusive. But don't fret, Bluefin has us covered.

Over at the S.H.Figuarts blog they've posted a few more photos of Sasuke that, let's be honest, aren't incredibly flattering. Compared to the early photos his face and hair have lost some details. His hair isn't as pointy and now hangs over his eyes more. His facial features have gotten softer and in some shots almost translucent when compared to what was certainly a hand-painted prototype. Body sculpting still looks nice and despite the challenging legs they appear to be very well articulated so that's a big plus. 

He won't be out for a few more months, late January/early February depending on where you go. Tamashii Web prices him at ¥5,184, but you won't be able to get it without some help if you aren't in Japan. On the other hand Bluefin has him priced at US$52.99 and if you go with, say, Amazon you might be able to get free shipping so that may be one of the better routs to take.

Make it a shrine festival date with Aniplex+'s Mami figure photo
Make it a shrine festival date with Aniplex+'s Mami figure
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Aniplex+ is back again with another Madoka Magica girl clad in their best kimono. Joining Madoka and Homura is figure number three, Mami (Maiko edition) in a very cute pink kimono. The detail is quite exceptional with lots of bright and vivid colors, every piece covered in flower petals. Her hair has some very intricately sculpted and painted decorations and even her bright blue fan looks great! Just like with the other two this is certainly a figure made to impress. As if that wasn't enough she also comes with a little Charlotte figure laughing at her feet. 

The figure itself is 1/8 scale and stands at 190 mm. She's expected to be released in April at US$119.98. As an Aniplex+ exclusive she's only available directly through Right Stuf or Akiba Anime. Pre-order cutoff to guarantee a figure is October 31, but both shops have ordered additional figures in the past to continue taking orders after the date, though you're taking a big chance!

Oh, and check the gallery for a preview of the Sayaka and Kyouko figures!
