Someone's going out for a night on the town; and taking that enormous weapon with her. From Shining Blade (one of the more recent entries in Sega's decades long Shining franchise), the priestess with the leastless fun: R...

Let the video games begin: NECA brought a plethora of video game-released collectibles to Toy Fair, in addition to its usual assortment. This included NES decos for some of its previously released figures.

Highlights included an awesome NES Godzilla, Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm characters, LBP Sackboys, and so much more.

See some of my personal favorites after the jump.

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...

DyDo gives Nintendo fans a reason to buy its coffee photo
DyDo gives Nintendo fans a reason to buy its coffee
by Scarecroodle

Whether you drink coffee or not, DyDo coffee will appeal to Nintendo fans with a new Super Mario Bros. minifigure promo which features NES-styled sprites of characters with warp pipe bases.

While I'm not familiar with the brand, apparently it's run similar promos in the past as well (although never seen in the US, Japanese beverage companies have done similar promotions from time to time). Personally I don't drink coffee (which might be why I have a hard time staying awake and alert), but it's the sort of thing that could convince me to buy a thing of coffee if I lived in Japan (which I then wouldn't drink).

The figures have an awesome retro appeal, although they've seemingly gained a dimension since there appears to be some depth to them. The selection includes Mario, (fire flower?) Luigi, Bowser/King Koopa, Princess Peach (or Princess Toadstool, as she was known at the time), a goomba, a koopa troopa, Toad, and Lakitu (spikies sold separately?).

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: 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...

The Bishoujo fight continues with a teaser for Sakura
by Scarecroodle

Kotobukiya recently posted a teaser for its upcoming Street Fighter Bishoujo Sakura. As mentioned in our Winter WonFes coverage, the figure was on display at Kotobukiya's booth but no photos were allowed.

Sakura's illustration previously appeared in the Kotobukiya catalog and depicts the character in a fairly typical Shoryuken-style rising uppercut (her version of the attack is called the Shoudoken). While this is generally a good pose, we won't know how the figure turned out without seeing the face. I'm guessing that the full figure will be officially unveiled to the public come this weekend at Toy Fair.

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Kotobukiya's anime and video game ladies

Kotobukiya isn't only about their Shunya Yamashita-designed Bishoujo series figures, in case you've forgotten. They also make, well, bishoujo figures... in the traditional sense. Kristina was able to get a load of photos from...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Kotobukiya's Bishoujos - additional photos
by Scarecroodle

While Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Raven and Lady Deadpool may have just been illustrations on cards, our intrepid reporter in Japan managed to capture some additional photos of the upcoming Bishoujos on display.

These photos include images of the newly unveiled Wasp alongside She-Hulk, Zatanna, Anna Williams, and Nina Williams. Unfortunately, the display seems to be set up in a way that you can't get a lot of other angles of Wasp. I was somewhat interested in how she held up as a whole. On the plus side, this one again reaffirms that She-Hulk looks great.

Be sure to check out the gallery.

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: QuesQ

Kantai Collection fans, your ship has come in from Ques Q, and we perhaps mean that literally. They brough enough KanColle PVC with them to sink a small fleet: Kitakami, Yukikaze, Tatsuta, Tenryuu, Kongou, Kirishima, Kit...
