KanColle's Shigure sets sail

Although I'm enjoying the KanColle anime, I haven't been too excited about the figures coming out. Well, count this as one more day where I won't get the Kongou figure I've been wanting. Sure, Max Factory made one, but that K...

Fressia will be Kotobukiya's next Tony heroine

I'm always happy to see nice original character designs, though it's arguable how original this Freesia design is. She's the third in a similar series of designs for Kotobukiya's Tony Heroines Collection after Daisy and Annab...

Alter's Shinobu only gets cuter with gluttony

The Monogatari series went from quirky Shaft show to a powerhouse franchise, and Alter's cashing in with a Shinobu figure! I love Shinobu not just for her moe attributes, but also because she's secretly a badass. However the ...

Sideshow features the brutish Igor in their video showcase

Iron Man 3 had a veritable smorgasbord of armors, which of course means plenty of fodder for Hot Toys' 1/6-scale line of Iron Man figures. Sideshow has recently uploaded a video of the Mark XXXVIII (38 to you non-Romans) arm...

Max Factory's Aoi Sakurai derails my heart

I've been feeling rather uninspired by 2015's pre-order outlook so far. It looks like Max Factory will come to my rescue with Rail Wars' Aoi Sakurai. Kahotan has a preview up of the 1/7-scale figure, and it's a cool design. T...
