Wonder Festival 2017 Winter: Nendoroids

I think any responsible financial planner would take Wonder Festival into account (well, provided they collect figures). I mean, look at all this stuff! This is real stuff that is coming! I'm not the biggest Nendoroid collector but each yea...

Last minute gift ideas for the figure collector in your life

Christmas (or your winter gift-giving holiday of choice) is almost upon us! While it's fun to give and receive gifts, it can be quite stressful doing the actual planning and shopping. So what do you buy for that special figure collector in ...

Nathan Drake, the star of Sony's Uncharted games, has been on a bit of a run lately. Not only is he receiving a 7-inch action figure (NECA) and a stylized Pop! figure, but he also has a Nendoroid on the way. Mamitan recently posted a photo ...

You got: Nendoroid Mega Man preview gallery! And pre-orders!

Kahotan has posted a preview gallery for Good Smile Company's upcoming Nendoroid (classic-series) Mega Man and -- SPOILER ALERT! -- he's totally adorable. Oh, and did I mention he's available for pre-order? Nendoroid Mega Man may not includ...

 
 
Nendoroid Kirby photo

Eat up this Nendoroid Kirby gallery

Here's a pointless question for you: what makes this Kirby figure a Nendoroid (aside from obvious branding considerations)? Would a figma Kirby or, heck, a Hot Toys Kirby look any different? These are the kinds of things I ask myself after ...

Nendoroid Sanya is ready for the night sky

Strike Witches fans can finally get their hands on a Nendoroid version of the nocturnal witch Sanya V. Litvyak! With Strike Witches 2 having aired a pretty long time ago and the Operation Victory Arrow OVAs already wrapped up, the timing of...

Nendoroid Ooyodo piles on the naval accessories

[ Update: Pre-order info added ] Relaying orders to the fleet, handling communications, giving mission briefings, and occasionally getting glomped by Kongou - these are all part of Ooyodo's everyday life. Doesn't that make her more of a sec...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Wonderful Hobby Life For You

[ Update: Hobby Search has even more coverage of the WHL4U booth, including more Nendoroids, figmas, and ThreeA figures! ] Wonder Festival has come and gone. While it's odd to me that such a big event is one day only (wouldn't it be awesome...

Let's get one last look at Nendoroid Mako before AX

Anime Expo is opening this weekend and thousands will crowd into the Los Angeles Convention Center. For many, the goal of the weekend is stride right into the dealer's room and buy more stuff than is economically responsible. To facilitate ...

Kongou sisters assemble... for a relaxing tea time

It looks like Good Smile Company's planning/development team also has fans of the Kongou sisters as they've posted a neato gallery showing off all four of them. I only know them from the Kantai Collection anime, but that's good because they...

 
 
2016 Snow Miku photo

The next Snow Miku will have a sportier design

Snow Miku has had many looks, going from a straightforward palette swap to a beautiful interpretation based on traditional Japanese dress to the fanciful designs of the last two years. For 2016 we're getting away from the whimsical with a s...

 
 
Nendoroid Sakura Mikudayo photo

Rue the coming of spring with Nendoroid Sakura Mikudayo

The fact that Good Smile Company has embraced the Mikudayo meme should tell you something about who they are as a company. If you thought Mikudayo would just be a one-off, though, you'd be wrong. She's back in force this year with the flowe...

 
 
Racing Miku 2015 photo

Racing Miku takes up sword and shield for 2015

Racing Miku is getting her yearly update. This time Good Smile Racing has gone with a clever sword and shield motif, which for me personally evokes the titular warriors of Valkyria Chronicles. I'm not the only one who thinks this, right? An...

 
 
Snow Miku 2016 photo

Snow Miku 2016 is all about the winter sports

What's this? It's finally starting to look like spring around here and I have to think about winter again!? I guess if it's for a new Snow Miku design I'll let it slide. Slide... heh. Anyway, it's time to start thinking about next year's Sn...

 
 
Top sales 3/30 to 4/5 photo

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 3/30 to 4/5

So last time I lamented a bit that figma Sinon from Sword Art Online II didn't rank during her release week. Well it seems she received a delayed reaction as she ranked pretty high in the first week of April. And she wasn't even the only fi...

Good Smile Racing have revealed the sponsorship tiers for their 2015 season, with every tier getting access to the new Racing Miku Nendoroid. I'm not quite sure why she's a knight now, apparently, but hey, it's still a better design than ju...

Tomopop Double Review: Nendoroid Link

Nendoroid Tomoyo pre-orders aim to put girls on film

I've already spent my fair share of time raving over the adorable Nendoroid Cardcaptor Sakura, but as everyone knows a magical girl is nothing without her friends to back her up. That's why I'm delighted to pass on the news that Sakura's co...

Start saving coins, Nendoroid Mario pre-orders have begun

It's only been a few months since Nendoroid Mario was announced back at Wonder Festival 2014 (Summer), but it feels like a year! The wait will still continue for a while longer before he's released in May 2015, but at least we're now anothe...

Good Smile Company releases images of Frozen's Nendoroid Elsa

One of the biggest surprises to come out of Wonder Festival Summer was the reveal of Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Elsa from Frozen. Photos weren't allowed and absolutely nobody broke that rule to sneak a photo, so I can only imagine what ...

 
 
Nendoroid More photo

Next up for Nendoroid More: cheerleaders!

The Nendoroid More accessory line is growing, and should soon include a selection of cheerleader bodies for your Nendoroids! The current pajama bodies look fine, but I'd say these are a little more spirited. If you picked up the Cheerful Ja...
