Alter's Hozuki Ferrari is ready to find some treasure

I've never heard of Galilei Donna before, but Alter decided it was a big enough deal to make a figure with the license. It seems to be an adventure series about three sisters looking for treasure. I choose to believe it's in ...

[NSFW] Alphamax's Excellen Browning is not about leaving stuff to the imagination

Despite having the SkyTube brand to market their ero figures, Alphamax's seems to have gotten more ero as well. While this Excellen Browning isn't fully naked, we're at a point where black censor bars would achieve a similar ...

Good Smile Company's new Ryuko Matoi is the height of fashion photo
Good Smile Company's new Ryuko Matoi is the height of fashion
by Martin Siggers

[ Spoilers ahead for Kill La Kill! ]

Back at Wonder Festival we saw Good Smile Company unveil a prototype for new figure of Kill La Kill heroine Ryuko Matoi. Rather than go for any of her more common looks though, the company opted to ramp up the craziness and produce a figure of her final episode 'Senketsu Fashion Week' super form, which I will never not refer to as Senketsu Hulk Hogan thanks to its red and yellow colour scheme.

Now Moeyo have put out a more comprehensive preview gallery and I have to say she's looking pretty good. As ever with these colossal 'ultimate form' figures GSC seem to have ladled on the detail and drama. The pose seems designed to take up the absolute maximum amount of shelf space possible, and that hair is approaching Yu-Gi-Oh! levels of awesome ridiculousness. My major concern here is that there's simply not that much for the sculptors to go to town on - after all, this is about as close to naked as an outfit can come. It's definitely a case where we'll have to see a more finalised coloured version before we pass judgement. If you're looking to catch the eye though, there's little doubt she'll do that.

Max Factory's Mikuzukin goes up for pre-order

The lovely Mikuzukin figure from Max Factory is up for pre-orders, merrily skipping along with a wolf on her head. I have a feeling this Miku design will be pretty popular. If you haven't already, you can check out the previe...

Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Street Fighter Bishoujo Cammy
by Tianxiao Ma

Kotobukiya's Bishoujo lineup seems to be growing by the day. The latest Street Fighter gal to hit the, uh, streets is Cammy. Although she isn't out in the US, she is currently available to import from Japanese retailers.

When a 2D design gets translated to 3D, you'd expect some slight differences. With Cammy, I think there has been a significant shift in style thanks to the sculpt. Whether that's good or bad depends on your tastes, but read on to see what I'm talking about.

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company - miscellaneous

Continuing with Good Smile Company's (and associates) apparently near-infinite display at WonFes, we arrive at some Attack on Titan figures and a bunch of Sonicos. GSC usually does a decent job with Sonico figures in that I d...

Last spotted at WonFes, Max Factory's Mikuzukin figure now has two proper previews. You can see some promo shots of her on the figma blog, and another gallery at Kahotan's Blog. I've been looking forward to this figure even before it got a paint job, and I'm not disappointed at all.

Mikuzukin (a portmanteau of Miku and Akazukin, the Japanese name for Red Riding Hood) is a design featured in Project Diva 2nd. It's a wonderful reinterpretation of Miku, putting her in an extremely cute outfit - and the skirt's just short enough to show the all-important zettai ryouiki. Jump on over to Kahotan's Blog or the official Max Factory preview to see all the little details. She'll be up for pre-order soon, and yeah... I'm getting in on that for sure!

Wonder Festival saw Max Factory unveil a brand new line for the company - fixFix. As you might be able to guess from the name, it's a spin on their omnipresent figma line, but without the signature poseability. Instead, these...

So yeah, Persona 3's Yukari is getting a figure. That makes me pretty happy. Thanks, Vertex! They had a few other figures on display at WonFes... some of which I'd like to forget. From the folks who brought you Super Sonico,...

I'm limited by Tomopop's language policy, but please feel free to make all the male anatomy jokes you want about the display base for the Mikasa figure. Unintentional humor is often the best kind after all. Pulchra's WonFes d...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company girls part 2

Partial nudity and figure collecting go hand in hand. If it makes you uncomfortable, you may want to avoid this gallery. However it makes me very comfortable, so I'll tell you a little about what's going on! These figures are...

Tomopop Review: Figuarts ZERO Charlotte Dunois & Cecilia Alcott
by Pedro Cortes

I used to fancy myself an anime-obsessive. I would watch as many things as I could jam into my eye sockets and if it had a robot of some sort in it? Boy, I'd be on that double time. However, as time has gone on, I can't watch nearly the same amount of stuff I used to, and that's why I haven't seen Infinite Stratos. Despite some potentially interesting content (robotic exoskeletons, nations at war, harem antics, etc.), it was remained unwatched.

I will say this though: if the gals are as cute as their Figuarts ZERO counterparts, I may have to give it a watch sometime soon. Hit the jump to see what I mean!
