  • Another day, another event in Japan! This time around it’s Anime Japan 2017, a smaller event that only a handful of companies attend. But they still had quite a few new goodies to show us. Re:Zero seemed to be the real star here: Rem & Ram have figures from Good Smile Company, and Rem is getting a Cu-Poche. Kemono Friends also proved to be quite popular, with the Nendoroid reveal of Serval and a figma announcement for her too. There were, of course, many Nendoroids out on display. Li Syaoran is sculpted and so cute! We had a few new announements from Kotobukiya too, like a scaled figure of Aiz Wallenstein from Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria. Why with these names, Japan. Aiz had a fully painted surprise figure from Genco out & about too. Check them out and much more in the gallery! [via Kahotan & Dengeki]

  • Bandai has given us a lot of Pokemon S.H.Figaurts in the past, but they have all been of the actual ‘mons and not the human characters. An odd decision, considering how much easier it is to articulate a human than a giant lizard! But the day has finally come when we get Ash & co. Or at least Ash, Jessie, and James. Weird combo to start out with, but I can dig it. Ash comes with, of course, Pikachu, and Jessie & James have Meowth. The accessories are minimal (this is Bandai we’re talking about), but still cute–like the dizzy face for Meowth! There is an exclusive set of all 3 that includes an extra crying face for Ash, but you will need a proxy to get it. Thankfully there are non-exclusives up for the rest of us! Ash retails for ¥4,500 and the Jessie & James set is ¥9,500, while the exclusive will cost you ¥13,000. All 3 are set for a July release. [via Tamashii nations]

  • We’ve seen all of the new goodies that Good Smile Company had a toy fair already, like Nendoroid Tracer, the Portal 2 figmas, and Nendoroid Link. But of course they had more than 3 figures out! That would be pretty odd, right? A big booth with just 3 things. Very ominous. Anyway, they had lots of their more US-centric licenses out on display, like the Naruto Nendoroids… which are USA only! Weird, right? But cool. There was also a lot of Zelda, Dota 2, Fire Emblem, Metroid, Suicide Squad, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and of course… that amazing Disney announcement. Check ’em all out below the jump!

  • As collectors, our focus for Wonder Festival is obviously on the things that you can, you know, actually buy. But at the event, purchasable PVC figures are outnumbered pretty substantially by garage kits. We of course brought you our usual before-event roundup, but it’s time to take a look at all the goodies that were out and about that day! The quality ranges from amazing to god-awful, so we tried to bring you the cream of the crop. Though I will admit, quite a few in this gallery are just here because of how odd they are. Shirtless Gilgamesh? Girl getting (happily) eaten by a shark? Cat on a motorcycle? Check ’em out and tons more below the jump! [via 1up, tom matsumodo, & hanpenx]

  • It’s time to accelerate! Funko’s Overwatch line has certainly been successful, but everyone wants their main to be released ASAP. Which is a problem when there’s, like, two dozen characters. But they’re working as fast as they can! Wave 2 was on display at Toy Fair, and it includes D.Va (in mech), Lucio, Mei, McCree, Symmetra, and Reinhardt. I’m still sad there is no tiny Bastion, but perhaps wave 3 will finally fill my robot dreams.

  • Sometimes I wonder to myself, “what the hell is going on with the Kingdom Hearts franchise?” 2 came out over 10 years ago, and it’s probably going to be a while before we get 3 (or even any info on a release date, sigh). Yet there are multiple side games with bizarre names like Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary passage- and Dream Drop Distance. Who comes up with these? Are they given LSD and locked in a room where Animal Collective plays nonstop until the come up with a sufficiently trippy title? Truly a mystery. Square-Enix had 2 Play-Arts from the franchise on display: Sora from KHIII (toys before game seems to be so common nowadays), and Aqua from Birth by Sleep. There’s also some amazingly cute vinyl figures of the various cute/evil critters that populate the world. Who doesn’t want a tiny Heartless lurking around their apartment?

  • Final Fantasy used to be my gaming lifeblood. I have sunk so many hundreds of hours into those games, and they were absolutely my most anticipated releases. Until XIII, which I have tried 3 times to get into. Like literally, I’ve restarted the game 3 times hoping to feel the spark. Nada. So while I pre-ordered XV, I still haven’t touched it. Basically at this point I’m just waiting patiently for the XII remaster, sigh. At least I have my Fran Play-Arts to keep me company! They had quite a few Play-Arts Kai from the FF world at Toy Fair (though sadly none from World of Final Fantasy, how cute would those be?). There’s Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, Nyx Ulric, and Cindy Aurum from XV, and Cloud & Barret from VII. Then there’s what I am all about: plushes! Chocobos to fill the void in your heart, Moogles to make you happy. And a bonus slime from Dragon Quest, to go with the 5 million you probably already own if you’re anything like me.

  • We are officially less than a month away from Mass Effect Andromeda. Are you excited? Have you placed a pre-order? Are you ready for an onslaught of merchandise before you’ve even played the game and had time to pick a favorite character? Because Funko is ready to take all your money. They had a whopping 5 POPs from Andromeda out and about at Toy Fair: Sara Ryder, Ceebee, Liam Kosta, Jaal, and The Archon. Sara will have 2 variants (Masked & N7), and there will be an alternate Peebee with a gun. I just have one question: where is my Wrex POP? I want merch of my Krogan husband please.

  • Kotobukiya had two Bishoujo-related announcements at Toy Fair: the art for Katana and the full reveal of Kamala. But given at this is a US-centric event, they had a TON more out and about, though funnily enough most of them were from non- comic franchises. It’s amazing how big the line has grown since it started with just Marvel girls! It was mostly movie Bishes on display: Chucky (who might be my all-time fave), Edward Scissorhands, and The Bride. Then there were some video game girls, like Rainbow Mika and Ibuki. We also know that there will be a new Chun-Li, though the sign for her was not out.

  • Aquamarine is not a company that usually brings the wow factor to events. I expect a small booth from them with a handful of sculpts, and way too many announcements. But they really brought it this year! Tons of new stuff and some truly awesome looking figures, like the header girl Jack-O’ Valentine from Guilty Gear. How cool is she?! Sadly, none of the 5 million Sabers they announced were there, and Justine & Caroline from P5 are still unpainted. But there’s PriPara, a gorgeous Rin Shibuya from Cinderella Girls, plenty of Girls und Panzer, Galko-chan, Angel Beats, Hiro Hayima from King of Prism (a boy from Aquamarine?!), and the impressively muscular Jam Kuradoberi. Plus we’ve got announcements! From Shining World, Won Pairon and Altina Mel Sylphis, and also a very casual-looking Asuna. [via moeyo]
