As much as I loathed Good Smile Company’s Maiko Madoka (for a variety of reasons: mainly the terrifying face, but also stupid exclusive for no reason), I was kind of hoping they’d continue the line. Mostly because I am not as worn out of the Madoka girls as I am of, say, Saber or Miku. Bring on a little more Puella Magi, GSC, we can take it! Also I wanted Homura in cute clothing, okay?! So sue me.
Well, no surprise here–in fact, I’m just amazed it took them this long. That’s right, Maiko HomuHomu is happening! I adore the art, and I really don’t think they can screw up her face like they did on Madoka. And yes, I am hoping for Mami too. And a Maiko Nendoroid to go with Madoka’s. Ugh, I just can’t get enough–and with Rebellion in theaters, I’d put on my Madoka raincoat if I were you.

When Kotobukiya started up their ArtFX J Yu Yu Hakusho line, I thought for sure we’d only be getting the three original releases: Hiei (review), Yusuke (review), and Kurama (review). After all, older anime usually doesn’t get a ton of love, let alone a full-fledged figure line! A set of 3, sure… but a ton of figures? However, two more have been announced so far: Kuwabara, who we will be looking at today, and Yoko Kurama, who is hitting shelves in the US very soon!
Kuwabara is definitely different from your usual PVC figure. Even among the rare male crop, he stands out… mainly because he looks like a street thug, which is kind of cool. I mean, we usually only get pretty guys who could be mistaken for girls in a ton of situations. It’s time for some manly man love, so hit the jump and let’s get started!

Welp, this is a not-so-shocking but still exciting announcement! After Bandai’s Figuarts ZERO Sailor Moon (which got a bit of sculpting assistance from Volks), it seemed inevitable that we’d get at least the Inner Senshi. Though I wasn’t much pleased with how the paint on Sailor Moon turned out, she does pop up in this shot–and looking much better!
But we’re not here about Usagi. This is all about Sailor Mercury! They’re following up her very cute S.H.Figuarts with a nice scaled figure… and let’s be honest here, they gave her a totally bitchin pose that kind of puts Sailor Moon to shame. So dynamic! I’m getting too excited!

I imagine the conversation about these figures went something like this. “Well, Dave, that Gurren Lagann sure is a weird show. How about… we make… figures… that are weirder! And EVEN TACKIER?” “OMG BEST IDEA EVER? How about… robot Yoko… with… HER BUTT HANGING OUT?” Yup. That about sums it up.
Honestly, folks, I have no clue what is going on here. The first figure, a “Deforevo Color” Yoko, is a normal chibi figure except for the VERY oddly proportioned boots, the fact that she’s a colored resin kit, and the lovely cost of ¥8,400. With a February release. The second is…. a robot Yoko, with huge boobs and her butt hanging out, which will cost you a sweet ¥12,600…. and also comes out in February! Oh, and they might be exclusives like Aegis. I have no words, I’m too busy giggling like a 12 year old boy at a naked robot butt.

I was really uninpressed but Alter’s Summer WonFest 2013 offerings, but it seems like that’s because they were saving all the good stuff for MegaHobby Autumn 2013! We got a veritable deluge of figures: swimsuit versions of Charlotte & Cecilia, Akane Isshiki from Vividred Operation, two Strike Witches, a gorgeous new Sora Kasugano, Asuka from Senran Kagura, and The Muse of Range Murata. Of course they had even more great figures, but we’ll be taking a look at the rest a bit later!
There was a whole lot to feast your eyes upon, but at the time we (obviously) only had event photography. Quick, “oh my god look at this figure!” event photography. But some time has passed, which means it’s time to sit back, relax, and browse some higher quality galleries of these gorgeous ladies. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but my money’s on Sora all the way. I mean…. that dress. She’s perfect!

Of the many Saber variations, Saber Bride might be the strangest (though at the moment, Sakura Saber is fighting for that spot). She’s a form of Extra, so she’s not even the same character as the original Saber, but the main question is: who is she getting married to, and why is she getting married in weird bondage/fetish gear? With a sword? What kind of wedding is this even? But it’s Saber, and Saber sells no matter what. In fact I’m rather fond of this version since it’s so delightfully weird. It was no surprise when we got the Nendoroid announcement, and since she’s been painted for some time now the full reveal was bound to happen sooner or later.
Good Smile really went all out with Saber Bride: the detail is pretty awesome, on everything from her sword to her crown of flowers to the burnt edges of her veil. Pretty impressive for something so tiny! And she actually comes with some decent faces: not happy, happy, and…. incredibly, adorably derpy, with a music note ahoge to match. Too cute! Orders open on December 5th, and I can’t help but wonder what Saber they’re gonna Nendoroid-ize next… they’re running out of options.

Apparently, Japan exists in a place where it is perpetually spring & summer. That, or people just post warm-weather photos year-round. But I’m gonna throw Occam’s Razor out the window on this one because always-spring seems very, very nice right about now. In New York it’s icy cold but we don’t even have any snow. Thanks, Sugar! You’re the worst snow fairy.
We’ve got a whole new set of Nendoroid Adventures for you today, and it’s actually been quite a while since the last one! Thankfully there’s some variety here: a whole lot of Miku, of course, but also Asuna, Kirito, Sonico, and many other cuties off riding bikes, swimming, and getting into all sorts of mischief. Nendoroid photography has always been something that interested me but I can never work up the energy to put in all that effort: it just takes so much time! So congrats to all the people who can pull off shots as awesome as the ones in this gallery.

MegaHouse’s first set of Sailor Moon Petit Chara! figures were a smash success. Sure, they aren’t out yet, but pretty much everyone I know ordered a box… or two…. or four (you know who you are!). So of course we’re getting more, and FINALLY this flood of Sailor Moon merch is expanding to the Outer Senshi. That’s right, it’s finally time for those overly touchy-feely cousins we all love!
Sailor Moon is in it again (of course) in a different outfit at least (her Super Sailor Moon outfit), along with Chibi Moon, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Saturn! If that’s not enough awesome for you, Chibi Moon comes with Luna P! Aww yis.

Ah, One Piece. MegaHobby Expo is practically centered around this anime/manga megalith, since a third of MegaHouse’s figures seem to come from it. But I always save it for last because, well… I don’t really know a whole lot about One Piece. So we’re just gonna get right into the news.
We’ve got a lot of new figures here! Bellamy the Hyena, Cavendish (who I thought was Robin at first because of the hair, this is how much I know about One Piece), Bartolomeo, Momonosuke (SO CUTE), Marco with chicken legs, and Kaku will all be joining the P.O.P lineup! Only the last two are painted so it will probably be a bit before we see any releases… but so far, none of them are calling my name. Big surprise, right?

Good Smile Company & Phat! Company are tearing it up with their IDOLM@STER figures, and I kind of expected MegaHouse to just roll over and continue along the lines of mediocrity. It’s been working for them when it comes to IDOLM@S girls for a long time, and let’s be honest… they’re not the smartest company when it comes to competition, so I certainly wasn’t expecting a change like this! Well… one chance like this. We have two announcements: one of them is Ami Futami, who does not look that exciting.
The second, though, oh my goodness! It’s a second version of Hibiki Ganaha, whose first release was an exclusive. I am totally in love with the pose, it’s so cute! Also it’s amazing that we have so many good figures of her: both the Phat! Company one and her Angelic Island version are so friggin cute. Based only on figures, she’s definitely ahead in the ranks of popular IM@S girls!
