S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon was certainly one of the more eagerly anticipated figures of last year, causing a pretty mad pre-order scramble that you don't see too often. It was worth the hassle too as Natalie discovered in her ...
The latest addition to the Tokusatsu Revoltech website is a page for the upcoming figure of The Bat. Yep, a poseable figure of Batman's craft from The Dark Knight Rises is coming in June, and it looks as odd at first glance as you might expect. It's also a chance for us to see the figure fully painted up close.
So what accessories does it come with? Well, besides the stand, you get a tiny Batman to sit inside the cockpit. He's not super detailed, just enough so you know that it's the Dark Knight. Kaiyodo's suggested retail price before taxes is ¥4,743 so I'd imagine it'll be a little closer to ¥5,000 at retail. I'm not sure I'm going to pick this one up because it's really for a niche audience (Nolanverse Batman fans), but what about you?
They've been teased for some time already, but it looks like we are finally getting those figma Avengers figures. The first Avenger won't be Cap, but rather the demi-deity from Asgard, Thor. Full previews are now out as well ...
Medicom is spoiling us with Real Action Heroes recently. Rio took a look at the lovely Ryuko Matoi earlier today, so it's only fair I level the battle of the sexes by presenting this equally stunning rendition of Levi from Attack On Titan. The good people over at the Amiami blog had a chance to go up close and personal and show off what you're getting.
With their cool looking uniforms, cloaks, and incredibly elaborate maneuver gear, the Attack On Titan cast were pretty much born to be added to the Real Action Heroes range, and Levi doesn't disappoint, looking just as great as Mikasa before him. Aside from his usual dour expression we've also got...his usual dour expression with his eyes shifted to the right. Yeah, that seems like a pretty big waste, but his third face, bug eyed and ruffle haired, is a great one, so let's let it slide.
Perhaps the coolest detail is that the initial production run will include bonus accessories in the form of Levi's cleaning hat, bandanna and dusters, basically giving you an entire second outfit. That's what I call a tempting pre-order incentive. Levi will go up for order on the 24th, and yes, that's the same day as Ryuko. Lovers of Real Action Heroes, brace your wallets for when the pair arrive in November.
Why hello there, Ryuko - if it isn't my favorite butt kicker in a current anime series! Medicom Toy's Real Action Heroes Ryuko Matoi Senketsu ver. was a huge hit at Wonder Festival 2014 Winter this year, as it should have been, and it looks like we'll be able to get our pre-orders in for her soon. They nailed her spot on in my book, and I can't wait to have this lovely lady sitting next to me on my desk.
AmiAmi Blog had a post reviewing the details of the figure, and it looks wonderful, especially getting to see all of the details up close. I don't think there is a single thing I dislike about this figure. It's going to retail for right around US$200, and should be going up for pre-order on February 24th in Japan. However, it won't be seeing shelves until some time in November 2014. At least we already know it looks this good in color!

Last time on Figuarts Sailor Moon Theatre, we took a look at S.H. Figuarts Sailor Mercury and declared she was pretty darn good. This time, we have the latest release from that series, S.H. Figuarts Sailor Mars. Of the five Sailor Senshi, I'll have to admit Mars is the one I had the least interest in growing up, perhaps because of her fiery personality. Still, I couldn't turn down the chance to have her alongside the two other Senshi, right?
So does Mars stack up with the previous releases? Hit the jump and find out!
The Kill la Kill love fest keeps on rolling! After the show made a big splash in the figma and Nendoroid world, it's no surprise to see Medicom Toy jump in and recruit it to the Real Action Heroes range. They're kicking ...
WonFes has brought me yet another toy of my dreams! Kill la Kill's Ryuko Matoi is now confirmed to be coming as a figma, and in her awesome battle outfit none the less! Anything with Ryuko is amazing in my book, but I'm a big fan of Ryuko x Senketsu for my OTP, so I love seeing her in her fighting look.
The Wonderful Hobby Life For You Twitter feed is where this image came from, so be prepared! You're going to be seeing a lot of amazing things coming soon, I can feel it! Of course we'll be bringing you more info on the figma as it comes to light!
[ Update: Even more excitement!! Satsuki will also be receiving a figma with her in wearing Junketsu! Now you'll be able to have a full out showdown between her and Ryuko! This is unconfirmed so far, and was found on My Figure Collection. ]

So, there was a little game called Persona 4 Arena last year. Since Persona has become all of the genres, they started to merchandise the series. After several releases of the cast from the fourth entry, the release of Arena gave reason to go back and revisit Persona 3. After the release of D-Arts Thanatos, we arrive at the release of D-Arts Elizabeth.
Is this new D-Arts release worth stepping into the Velvet Room for? Find out in today's review of D-Arts Elizabeth!
[Update: Added pre-order links, corrected figure name]
A long time ago, we covered a Wonder Festival and made casual mention of a Phat Company line of poseable figures. Then quite a while passed without much news. Now that li...
