Takara Tomy reveals Transforming RC car line

RC cars that turn into robots are something of a no-brainer. They've been a popular idea since I was a kid in the '80s and really never gets old. Of course the Transformers logo has appeared on any number of them over the yea...

Monster Hunter Tri G is getting its own Nendoroid! photo
Monster Hunter Tri G is getting its own Nendoroid!
by Natalie Kipper

The Tokyo Toy Show will see a very special addition to the Capcom booth this week. According to Good Smile Company's twitter feed, a new Nendoroid themed to the game, Monster Hunter Tri-G, will be showcased there. The figure is of a hunter in Lagiacrus gear. So far, the only information we have on this new toy is the photo seen in the gallery and the knowledge that it will be on display from June 14th to 17th at the Tokyo Toy Show. I honestly think this is a great interpretation of a monster hunter, provided they were shrunk down and coated in cuteness. 

Any gamers interested in this new development of the Monster Hunter brand?
