Now you can have Tony Stark do SCIENCE with this Hot Toys figure

You might have gleaned from my trip to SDCC that Hot Toys hasn't been stingy when it comes to making Iron Man figures. As long as there are variants to make, companies are going to make them. Their latest will be Tony Stark, ...

Tomopop Review: Good Smile Company's Sorceress

Good Smile Company generally sticks to the popular properties (or pushes their own) when they make figures, but sometimes random partnerships happen and you get something way out of left field. This is probably why you're loo...

Tomopop Review: Max Factory's Mea Kurosaki

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 t...

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...

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...

Good Smile Company's Levi is ready to lead your expedition

Levi, the cool-headed neat freak captain of Attack on Titan's scouting legion, is now getting the PVC treatment from Good Smile Company. Along with the intricate maneuver gear, you'll also get... part of a Titan head. It's bi...

Amakuni serves up a stray god for you

If pretty women with giant swords floats your boat, check out Amakuni's Bishamon from the manga/anime series Noragami. She's supposed to be a god of combat - I guess she looks the part? Kind of? This looks to be a Hobby Japan...

Bishoujo Anna Williams gets a preview gallery

What was teased in July has now become a real thing: here's Kotobukiya's Tekken Bishoujo Anna Williams! The translation from illustration to figure went pretty well. While Anna's pose looks a bit silly from some angles, at le...

Kotobukiya's cat figure comes with a free catgirl

Got the sneaking suspicion that Kotobukiya has already made a Xiao Mei? Well you'd be correct. But why let a good design go to waste? Kotobukiya will soon be releasing another variant of Shining Blade's Xiao Mei, this time pa...

Kahotan previews a beefcake from Dramatical Murder

With the amount of attention I pay to boobs and (female) butts, it seems only fair that I cover some eye candy for the ladies too. Max Factory's upcoming figure of Ren from Dramatical Murder fits the bill very nicely! Kahotan...

Tomopop Review: Alter's Asuka Langley Shikinami Jersey ver.

Alter has made a couple of Asuka figures before, with the last one released almost four years ago. If that one was too happy and/or immodest for you (those test plugsuits can be quite revealing), this release may be more to y...
