X-Plus' Battle-damaged Erza is aptly named

Just had a look at Akiba Hobby's photos of X-Plus' Erza Scarlet: Battle ver. and... yeah. As far as designs go, you can't go wrong with most of Erza's wardrobe; that isn't in question, here. It's the execution: hideous seam l...

Go green with ARTFX J Syaoran Li pre-orders
by Martin Siggers

While we've had a lot of Cardcaptor Sakura merchandise recently, almost all of it has been centred around the titular character herself. The story wouldn't be the masterpiece that it is though without another key piece of the puzzle, Sakura's on-again-off-again rival and precocious crush, Syaoran Li.

Fortunately though, Kotobukiya have heard my pleas and added Syaoran to their ARTFX J line, and he's up for pre-order now. We've known he was coming since Wonder Festival, and hopes were high after the accompanying Sakura turned out incredibly well, but this may be even better. The pose is gorgeous, the colour pops fantastically and that base is almost worth the cost of admission in its own right.

I'm always excited to see more figures too, and the combination of everything made this an absolute must own for me. If you're in the same camp, or at the very least like what you see, hit the links below. Syaoran comes in at ¥11,880 and he'll be headed to homes next May.

Funko shows off Black Butler vinyl Pop! figures

As someone who balks at the ever-increasing prices of licensed PVC toys and statues of my favorite characters, I'm totally cool with seeing Funko pick up Japanese properties for their Animation line of Pop! vinyl figures. Che...

Tomopop Review: Max Factory's Mea Kurosaki photo
Tomopop Review: Max Factory's Mea Kurosaki
by Tianxiao Ma

Mea hails from To Love-Ru Darkness, and as you can probably tell, the manga has its fair share of ecchi elements. Before Mea, Max Factory has also made a 1/6-scale Momo Velia Deviluke from the same property. The two share a theme in terms of their frilly lingerie.

I loved the Momo figure when it came out, and HobbyLink Japan has generously hooked me up with the companion piece. Read on to find out if it's up to snuff - although you can probably guess the conclusion since this is Max Factory we're talking about.

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Autumn: Revolve

I'm completely unfamiliar with Revolve or most of the characters they had on display at their MehgaHobby Expo booth, but their painted figure of Chu Feng's Liu Li is stunning. Yes, she looks like a bee and that "stinger" of h...

MegaHobby Expo 2014 Autumn: Alter

I've been feeling lukewarm about Alter's showings at events lately, but that changed when I saw what they brought to MegaHobby Expo. There's still the usual bishoujo/bishounen figures I don't really care for, but there were a...

MegaHouse shows a lot of pieces of One Piece at Megahobby Expo

Once again One Piece was the number one manga in sales in Japan for 2014 so it's no wonder why MegaHouse couldn't show any restraint when displaying OP figures at Megahobby Expo Autumn 2014. Some of these we've seen before, b...

The Naruto manga ends as MegaHouse adds more figures

If you're like me then your week feels a little less complete after years of getting a weekly dose of the Naruto manga ended in November. Sure, I was satisfied with the ending (got my pairings!), but I still want more. Thankf...

Alter's Heidemarie W. Schnaufer is up for pre-order

I don't know if you'd call Strike Witches character designs creative. On one hand, they are a bizarre mix of moe girls, WWII-era airplanes, animal ears, and authentic weaponry. On the other hand, basically all the character d...
