Watch this adorable preview of Nendoroid Ozawa Rina and Nameko
by Kristina Pino

The folks at Nameko Paradise blog had an opportunity to handle GSC's decomaster of Nendoroid Ozawa Rina, to adorable results. The host of the video walks us through her various signature poses with Nameko as illustrated on book and game covers.

There isn't much more to say except that it's delightful - I've been in love with this figure's design since we first started seeing her around, since she translates perfectly into Nendoroid form.

I've also included a few images in the gallery below from their blog (click through for more), with detailed looks at the figures. Enjoy!

Miku Type 2020 is almost here, looking gorgeous photo
Miku Type 2020 is almost here, looking gorgeous
by Martin Siggers

We were stunned by her first appearance at Wonder Festival last July, and now nine months later Kahotan has put out word that Max Factory's terrific Hatsune Miku Type 2020 is shipping out to lucky buyers. To celebrate the occasion, we've been gifted a preview gallery that confirms she's still as pretty as ever.

As anyone who's ever read any of my articles knows I'm obsessed with the portrayal of movement in figures and this is one of the best examples I've ever seen. The way her train flows out behind her, the ribbons on her wrists and ankles, and of course those colossal twin tails of hair - it all adds up to one great looking figure (and at 1/7 scale pretty huge too). Are any of you lucky readers awaiting her arrival?

[UPDATED] Good Smile Company's Mio Honda has stars in her ears photo
[UPDATED] Good Smile Company's Mio Honda has stars in her ears
by Martin Siggers

[Update: Pre-orders are up! Click the links below to get her] 

Good Smile Company have really been knocking it out of the park with their iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls figures lately. Even though I'm an avowed non-fan of the series I've really been digging some of the recent figures like Uzuki Shimamura. Now it's Mio Honda's turn to join the troupe, done up in her 'New Generation' look.

She's looking pretty good too. I'm a big fan of the orange and red colour scheme, although perhaps slightly less so of the pose. It's fine, just a bit generic is all. The base  is a nice bonus too. As ever GSC's eye for detail is up to scratch, be it the glossy finish on her boots or the delightful star shaped charms she's got scattered about her person. It's a pretty loud, brash figure, but I'm going to guess that's pretty in keeping with the character.

All in all it definitely looks like another winner. Pre-orders are up now at a not-unreasonable ¥8,380 and she'll be on your own personal stage come October

This preview should make you feel pretty good about Kotobukiya's Eren Yeager
by Tianxiao Ma

It's always great when a figure captures some of a character's personality. For Attack on Titan's Eren Yeager, that personality mostly consists of rage and combativeness. Kotobukiya's figure does a fine job showing Eren doing his thing.

I love the dynamic pose, his determined expression, and the use of the tree stump as a base. The paint and detailing look spot-on as well. Amiami has a large preview gallery showing Eren from all angles and showing the removable cape. If you have him on order, looks like you won't be regretting it!
