Expand your fleet with FunnyKnights' Amatsukaze

Actually I don't have anything against KanColle. Just as I'm a fan of Strike Witches, I can't help but to like yet another property featuring moe anthropomorphized versions of military vehicles. However it has been difficult ...

Max Factory's Samurai goes up for pre-order again

I'm guessing quite a few people missed out on Max Factory's Samurai (sometimes called Katanako) the first time if aftermarket prices are any indication. This is a re-color rather than a straight up re-release, but if you stil...

Kahotan has previewed Phat Company's 1/8-scale Miki Hoshii, which is also available for pre-order.

This crazy adorable figure comes an interchangeable glasses piece, allowing you to display her without or without the prop (although there aren't many reasons to go without). It's an absolutely endearing design with a good amount of detail.  Miki will run you around ¥7,992 and is slated for a February release.

ESC-Toy launches Hotline Miami figure Kickstarter ... and reaches goal photo
ESC-Toy launches Hotline Miami figure Kickstarter ... and reaches goal
by Brian Szabelski

ESC-Toy has returned to Kickstarter for funding on a new figure, and it's not something you'd expect. Teaming with Devolver Digital and developer Dennaton, Erick Scarecrow and co. will be making a 1/6-scale figure of Hotline: Miami's Jacket. That includes not only an articulated body with removable clothing (including actual denim pants), but a series of swappable weapons (shotgun, bloodied bat and katana) and Jacket's masks — Richard (the chicken), Tony (the cat), and Aubrey (the pig). You'll also get the bandaged Jacket head with hospital gown as well.

The Jacket figure is at the US$85 pledge range for the Kickstarter, and a limited edition Midnight Miami Marauder version was at the US$200 pledge level but has since sold out. As for the Kickstarter itself, it is over the goal with 31 days to spare, but you can still put down the money for your own Jacket figure through Sept. 20. The only question is: will you answer the call?

[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 ...

The Sega fan in me is loving these new images of Mega Drive Megatron photo
The Sega fan in me is loving these new images of Mega Drive Megatron
by Natalie Kipper

With the new images from Takara Tomy's site, we get another chance to "ooh" and "aah" over Sentinel's Mega Drive Megatron. Andres posted the pre-order information last May and I totally share in his excitement. As previously mentioned, the transforming blast-from-the-console-past will cost ¥10,000 and ship this September. But thanks to the site's update, we now have even more information! The Mega Drive Megatron will have a removable miniature cartridge of Sonic the Hedgehog in its slot. How is that for a big dose of nostalgia? The cartridge's label looks absolutely perfect, too. In fact, the whole darn robot looks magnificent.

Share in our excitement with these new photos in the gallery!

Here there be an Elder Dragon: Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 available for pre-order photo
Here there be an Elder Dragon: Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 available for pre-order
by Scarecroodle

Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 is now available for pre-order. The selection includes the absolute must-own over-sized (6-inch) Elder Dragon Nicol Bolas, Elspeth Tirel, Kiora Atua, Sarkhan Vol, Gideon Jura, and the freakish-looking Tezzeret.

Other than Nicol Bolas, one of the famed Elder Dragons (who premiered back in the Legends expansion in 1994 and has apparently since become a Planeswalker), I can't say that I recognize any of the characters which is unsurprising considering I haven't followed the franchise that closely since the creature-exclusive Le-Gi-Ons! expansion (although I played in a local Planar Chaos release sealed-draft tourney where I top 8'd in my first and only tourney outing). However, even if you're as unfamiliar with these guys as I am, some of the figures like Elspeth and Kiora. More importantly, you have that over-sized Nicol Bolas which you know you want.

Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 is slated for an October release. The standard figures have a US$10 MSRP while the larger Nicol Bolas will run you US$15.
