The Pokemon Center in Japan always has amazing toys and merchandise that the rest of the world can only dream of owning. Their ‘Secret Teams’ line of figures is definitely something I’m sure every fan would snatch up if they had the chance: Pikachu in the outfits of every villainous team from the games! That Team Skull Pika is particularly adorable, though I am very partial to Flare.
Of course these are only available in the Pokemon Center, but there’s hope for those of us who don’t live in Japan. These cuties are easily available on auction sites like Yahoo Japan, and reseller Pokevault has the whole trading figure line up (for a price), along with plushes, stickers, and other assorted evil!Pika goodies. Gotta catch em all?

For reasons I don’t fully understand, I am a huge sucker for the Race Queens figure genre. They’re just so cute! I mean, I don’t like watching actual car racing, and the outfits don’t exactly suit my everyday style, so who knows what it is. But I am drawn to them like a moth to the flame. And I was particularly excited when Stronger showed off a racing Saber (which is now painted and in the gallery!).
But they’re not just doing Saber. And unlike 99% of companies, the next girl is not going to be another Saber variant (though I have no doubt they’ll get to that). It’s Rin! Finally, the best girl is getting some love. I adore her pose: it’s so cute and it looks like they actually put in some effort into how it’ll look paired with Saber.

Ah MegaHouse, that company I love to hate. I sure do love how many nostalgic figures they make, and I sure do hate how the best ones are always exclusive. Like Angewomon and Angemon. And you know, given the detail, that these two will follow the same pattern. SIGH. But I’m still excited, just can’t contain the digihype.
We are finally getting my favorite ‘mon: Lady Devimon! Now that we have her and Angewomon, is Mastemon next up? I’d definitely pay proxy fees for that. We also have Dukemon Crimson Mode, whose sculpt looks pretty awesome so far.

While Persona 5 isn’t even out in the US yet (grumble grumble), it’s certainly reaching peak hype in Japan. And thus, it’s time for figures! We recently found out about Amakuni’s Anne, who was at the most recent Persona-themed event, along with Aquamarine’s Caroline and Justine who are newly sculpted.
Then we have some new figures! Phat! Company surprised us all by showing off two sculpts: the main character and Futaba Sakura! Which means we have figures of most of the girls, something that’s (still) not even true for 3 or 4.

At any event they attend, Good Smile Company and their numerous umbrella companies always steal the show. How can they not, with so much firepower? Of course Nendoroids were right at the forefront. Megumin, Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke, lots of KanColle (Hatsuzuki, Kiso, Pola), Caster Extra, Hajime Iwaizumi, and Boba Fett all made an appearance. And of course figmas too! We had Takao, Iowa, and Mumei on display.
Max Factory brought their new To LOVEru girl, Yuuki Mikan, and we had FREEing’s bunny Ryuuko Matoi. Last but not least, there’s Phat!’s Parform Hikari Karibuchi and Saber.
[UPDATE] Added a few stray figures!
[UPDATE 2] Added one last announcement: 22 Niang and 33 Niang from Bilibili!

We saw what Good Smile Company & co and Vertex brought to Miyazawa Model, but of course a few others showed up as well! Though it seems like everyone else was limited to one or two new figures up their sleeves. Kotobukiya had just a handful of new stuff: Wilhelmina Braunschweig Ingenohl Friedeburg (why with this naming) from High School Fleet, aka “that KanColle ripoff” and…. Spike is finally painted!
Revolve didn’t have much, but they did have announcements for Rem & Ram from Re:Zero. Aoshima had a lovely Izetta from Shuumatsu no Izetta on display, and Medicom had out their Gary/Blue/whatever you want to call him. Pulchra announced two new Vocaloids: Yukari Yuzuki and… a different figure of Yukari. And let’s not forget about the wacky EVA Unit-01 action figure on display!

So MegaHobby was, like, 3 days ago but apparently it’s totally time for another event to happen! Because all the companies not at MH had to do something with their time. First up is Vertex, aka “how do boobs work because I’ve never seen a human female.” There are so many hilarious boobs on display! From seasonally appropriate boobage (the Valkyrie Chronicles girls, and Santa Sonico–remember when she had a realistic bust?), to cyber boobage (Purple Heart, whose boobs are trying to escape her body), to the traditional gravity-deftying boobage (Fiona from Border Break!).
But there were almost-realistic girls on display too, like Sakuya from Shining Blade. And their announcements, like Noel from Blazblue, are pretty surprising given their usual demographic. Brunhilde from Aoki Kakumei no Valkyria is, however, exactly what I’d expect from them.

I tend to think of MegaHouse as a company that thrives on nostalgia. If it’s a new series, they hardly give it the time of day: it’s all about our childhood shows and long-running anime. So imagine my surprise at their big MegaHobby announcement: Yuri on Ice figures! If you told me they would be the first to hop on what I’m sure will be an insane figure hype-train, I would have laughed, but here we are.
Of course they had a ton of nostalgia going on too. Their full Pokemon line was out, looking impressive, and showing off the Ash & Charizard figure we’ve all been waiting for. Plus a huge Digimon one too! Sadly, the new Android 18 is just as tacky and inaccurate as the first, but it’s kind of countered by a non-boobytastic Tsunade. Also a recolor of their gorgeous Elf!We’ve got Sailor Moon, Zatch Bell, One Piece, Naruto, D. Gray-Man, Space Battleship Yamato, Gundam, and so much more. Check them all out in the gallery!

Alter has always been my favorite figure manufacturer, and while there have been times my heart was swayed by others (Max Factory! AlphaMax! Orchid Seed!), I come back to them time and time again because of their consistent quality and unique sculpts. And once again they brought it in force to MegaHobby with a variety of gorgeous sculpts, painted figures, and new announcements.
Of course there were a few from their IDOLM@STER line: their Rin Shibuya (who looks basically identical to the GSC one, let’s be honest) is painted, and they brought out the sculpt for their perfect winged Ranko who I love with all my heart. And the boys were out in force! Rei and Ritsu Sakuma from Ensemble Stars!, Cecil Aijima from Uta no☆Prince-sama♪, Haruka Nanase and Tachibana Mako from Free!, and an announcement for 3 new Free! boys: Sousuke Yamazaki, Nagisa Hazuki, and Rei Ryuugazaki. Plus the brand-new Dio Eraclea from Last Exile.
They also had a beautiful 1/6 scale figure of Takao, the cheesy but appealing Santa Saber Alter, Ikumi Mito finally sculpted, Lala Deviluke in a maid outfit, Plachta from the Atelier games, and two new announcements: Hikari Karibuchi from Brave Witches and Okoi from Oboro Muramasa!
