What was on hand at Toy Fair was actually a test cast sample and not even a paint master, so, this is relatively close sculpt wise to what will be appearing in your homes, and boy is she gorgeous! Do note that there’s a few blemishes and breaks here due to transport, which is a testament to the amount of detail and fine sections on this piece.</p> <p>I really love all of the fringe on her clothing, the hand coming out of the floor that she’s standing on, the addition of the book of the dead, and well, honestly, all of it. The chainsaw looks great, her clothes are incredibly detailed, and this is honestly one of the best bishoujo figures I’ve seen yet. Now hit the gallery and get to drool over her too!</p>

    Last summer at San Diego Comic Con we got word that Kotobukiya would be making a bishoujo of Ash Williams from Evil Dead 2, and now, at Toy Fair, we finally got to see that teaser art in its glorious full sculpt.

    Winter WonFest 2017: Pokemon figmas & Nendoroids

    Since Good Smile Company launched the Pokemon Nendoroid line, I think we’ve all wanted a little more. Sure, the figures are great, but by more I mean… give us 5 figures at a time ’cause us Pokefans will buy them all. And it looks like our dreams of going broke over plastic ‘mons can finally come true!

    We had 4 Poke-announcements from GSC at Wonder Festival. We’ll be getting a figma of Red, a Nendoroid of Ash, a Nendoroid of Lillie, and a Pokemon More set with Pikachu! What will this entail? A bunch of tiny Pokemons? Just Pikachu? Time will tell.

    Tamashii Nations 2016: Pokemon S.H.Figuarts

    Bandai’s Pokemon S.H.Figuarts line has been slow-moving but steady. It started out when they still used the D-Arts tag with the evolved Gen 1 starters and Mewtwo. Then we got Lucario, Mega Blaziken, and finally Pikachu last year. But it seems like they are finally, after many years, moving away from just the ‘mons. That’s right, it’s trainer time!

    At Tamashii Nations they showed off Ash, Jessie, and James (along with Meowth, of course). This opens up so much potential in the line! I wonder if they will go for Misty & Brock next, or move onto champions and gym leaders?

    Pokemon Nendoroids Ash & Gary Are Happening

    The Pokemon Nendoroids sure have been coming fast & furious recently! Now it’s time for Fast & Furious: Kanto Drift. Cause we’re getting a kind of crazy announcement.

    Catch ‘Em All With MegaHouse’s Ash & Misty

    MegaHouse just teased us with a still-unpainted Ash & Misty in recent magazine scans, but apparently that was all a big fib because here they are, totally finished and ready for orders! Sneaky, Megahouse. Real sneaky. But hey, it’s Pokemon figures and something I’ve dreamed about from the moment I picked up my first piece of PVC (Kotobukiya’s Mitsuru, if you were curious) and it’s finally happening! I couldn’t be more excited.

    Both Ash & Misty (and, of course, their pokecompanions) look fantastic. They’re so colorful and fun and happy-looking, everything you want from Pokemon. And thankfully, like Jessie & James they will be standard releases! No scrounging for a proxy for these bad boys. Orders open February 2nd.

    MegaHobby Expo Fall 2015: MegaHouse x Pokemon

    MegaHobby Expo used to be one of the really big figure events. With all the smaller ones, it’s toned down a bit in popularity these past few years, but we still get a good bit of new info. And tonight we have some great stuff: MegaHouse’s Pokemon line will not be ending with Jessie and James, but will continue on!

    They showed off the sculpts for Ash & Misty, and of course both of them have Pokemon pals. I pretty much grew up on Pokemon so this is such an exciting line for me! I wonder who else they will add? Brock, maybe Nurse Joy? I really want a Sabrina.
