    Nendoroid Solid Snake Is Ready To Sneak Into Your Collection

    We have seen quite a lot of this Nendoroid over the past few weeks, so not much of this preview is a surprise. I mean, we got almost all the promotional shots in the NicoNico preview, and the best extra was unveiled at Wonder Festival.

    But, you know, we’re getting a blog about him anyway! Everything you’d expect is here: guns, a cigarette, a box, a crawling body, and… the blocky extra head! Which I am going to admit that I just don’t… get. I don’t mean from an origin perspective. It’s just so weird looking.

    Order open tonight, release is slated for November

    Check Out Lawson’s Cheerleader Homura Akemi

    SDCC 2014: Kotobukiya’s Street Fighter Bishoujo Chun-Li Pink Ver.

    I am a firm believer in the fact that everything is better if you make it pink. Cats? Better pink. Hummers? Better pink. Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo Chun-Li? Better pink! It was a totally out of the blue announcement at SDCC, but I found myself pretty excited for it–which is rather amusing, because I’m far from a huge fan of hers.

    But she’s just so… pink! It makes her look so cheerful and happy. Like she’s going to completely wreck your face into a horrible mimicry of what a human should look like, but she’ll be bubbly as hell while doing it. I mean, if you *have* to have someone breaking all your bones, wouldn’t you rather have pink Chun-Li do it than blue Chun-Li?
