Fressia will be Kotobukiya's next Tony heroine

I'm always happy to see nice original character designs, though it's arguable how original this Freesia design is. She's the third in a similar series of designs for Kotobukiya's Tony Heroines Collection after Daisy and Annab...

Alter's Shinobu only gets cuter with gluttony
by Tianxiao Ma

The Monogatari series went from quirky Shaft show to a powerhouse franchise, and Alter's cashing in with a Shinobu figure! I love Shinobu not just for her moe attributes, but also because she's secretly a badass. However the figures are going to focus more on her being totally adorable.

We've had a look at the unpainted prototype before but it didn't stand out all that much compared to other Shinobu figures. The painted dekomasu looks great, and I really appreciate the bit of personality the additional expressions bring. Shinobu will be up for pre-order next week, but in the meantime you can check out the preview on Alter's blog.

Vertex's Yukari is ready to join your Dark Hour shenanigans

I don't know what it is about Yukari, but I really like her as a character. I was delighted to see that Vertex will be making a figure to go along with the Persona 3 movies coming out in theaters. The Spring of Birth was...

Max Factory's Aoi Sakurai derails my heart
by Tianxiao Ma

I've been feeling rather uninspired by 2015's pre-order outlook so far. It looks like Max Factory will come to my rescue with Rail Wars' Aoi Sakurai.

Kahotan has a preview up of the 1/7-scale figure, and it's a cool design. The pose, detailed sculpt, and disheveled look all make for a memorable piece - certainly a contrast from the way most of Max Factory's figures are in a generic standing pose.

Aoi will be up for pre-order soon, but make sure to check out Kahotan's full preview in the meantime.

Bishoujo Sakura uppercuts her way into this preview photo
Bishoujo Sakura uppercuts her way into this preview
by Martin Siggers

It's only been a few days since she was teased, but now Bishoujo Sakura has been revealed in all her sailor-suited glory. And you know what? I think she looks pretty darn great. Sure, there's the contentious face which is common to the line, but I think it's pretty mild here. Mostly they've rubbed off some of her cheeky tomboy edge for a more mature feminine look, which can go either way depending on your preference, but it's a very mild makeover. The pose is perfect too, radiating girlish energy and get-up-and-go attitude.

I've never bought a Bishoujo before but I think I'm in on this, since Sakura was the first Street Fighter character I ever played and remains a favourite to this day. What about you fellow fight fans, are you sold?

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Broccoli

Broccoli doesn't exactly have a banner year of super-popular characters on their slate (save for one), but it's not like they care. In the gallery, you'll see their bread-and-butter. Emphasis on the butt(er). Their 1/8 scale ...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Alphamax

If you're into more developed women, Alphamax is a good manufacturer to look at. They mostly make borderline ecchi figures, although their SkyTube label has more explicit stuff. They had a handful of figures on display for Wo...

[NSFW] Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Embrace Japan

I'm often taken by Embrace Japan's original character designs. The build quality of their figures, though, tends to be pretty rough. But once again, they're showing off some great designs at WonFes and I'm itching to get my h...
