  • Pulchra is a company with great ideas but usually not-so-great execution. Aside from the header girl Marie Antoinette, who we already saw at Fate/History, none of their sculpts really stand out to me. Except for Isuzu Sento, but that is… not in a good way. What is happening with her chest. They actually remind me a lot of Griffon, especially with their penchant to put up cards with the sculpt on them instead of, you know, just bringing the figure. They had a LOT of announcements this year. Rosehip from Girls und Panzer, Tooka Yatogami & Yoshino & Kurumi Tokisake & Origami Tobiichi from Date A Live, lots of To LOVEru girls, Ryoubi from Senran Kagura, and a reclining Emilia from Re;Zero.

  • Nendoroids. I love ’em, but on days like this I think to myself “why are there so many?!” We’ve seen the Nendos from Persona 5 and Fate/Grand Order. But there’s more. SO MANY MORE. We’ve got a surprise Lum, Fullmetal Alchemist cuties, Atlas & P-Body, Tony Taka Racing Miku, a new Kirby x2, Leonard Watch, Li from Cardcaptor, maiko Madoka Nendoroids, a Detective Conan quartet, new Rin & Len, even more Love Live!, Vocaloids Rin & Len, Attack on Titan, Re:Zero, a new Reimu (who looks sooo much better than the old one), Little Witch Academia, Fire Emblem, Kimi no Na wa, Ero Manga-sensei, Granblue Fantasy, Kyoukai no Rinne, Serval from Kemono Friends (so cute!! but why is the African mammal white guys), Saga of Tanya the Evil, Little Armory, Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou, BanG Dream!, Is the order a Rabbit?, AND MORE. So much more. Like many cool Nendoroid accessories: tanks for them to ride in, penguin & bear suits, special Halloween and Christmas sets… check ’em out below, and decide what tiny plastic babies to spend your hard-earned money on.

  • It’s that time again! Time to look at a few of the garage kits that will be on display and for sale at Wonder Festival. Of course for most of us this is just to drool over, but as always if you are attending the event each picture is labeled with the circle & character name! Also, I am insanely jealous of you. The trends this year are basically what you would expect. Tons of Re:Zero (and by that I mean tons of Rem & Ram, who cares about the other characters!), idol shows out in force, and quite a bit of Granblue Fantasy. Some old trends seem to be dying (there’s very little of Miku & Sonico compared to previous years). And, surprisingly, Cartoon Network is represented quite a bit. Check them all out in the gallery below, and let us know what you’d like to see as PVC! [via Grizzry Panda, mokupate, Volks, Kotopora, Primal Heart, fixia, Anadigi, Tinami]

  • We’ve seen Union Creative’s Flying Witch figure, but they had more on display! A lot more. They used to be a really under the radar company, but recently they’ve definitely upped their game. They had two Koutetsujou no Kabaneri figures (Mumei and Ayame Yomogawa), Kanade Takahashi from Hatsukoi Monster, figures from Monster Hunter, Attack on Titan, Days, All Out!!, and tons more! Check ’em all out in the gallery. [via Union Creative’s Twitter]

  • Man, we sure do get a lot of prize fairs. We’re already on the 42nd! This seasonal event gives us a look at all the upcoming prize figures that we’ll be seeing go up for order in the next few weeks. And, you know, the impossible to get ones like Ichiban Kuji that you have to hunt down and sell your soul for. The lineup here was pretty much the same as what we’ve been seeing recently. Classics like Evangelion, Dragonball Z, Fate/Stay Night and Vocaloid combined with newer phenomenon like IDOLM@STER, the Monogatari series, Attack on Titan, and Kantai Collection. There were some surprises, like the amazing Madoka & Homura set. Oh, and for once, no Miku–but a Rin & Len! Check ’em all out in the gallery. [via Hobby Maniax, & Hobbylog]

  • We all know that Good Smile loves a good holiday themed Nendoroid, like Santa Miku or Halloween Miku or Summer Miku… okay, so maybe they really like holiday-themed Miku Nendoroids. But apparently they can do other Nendos too in Santa hats, as we saw with Northern Princess… and now with Eren from Attack On Titan! Sadly, this is not a full Nendoroid, it’s just a Petit. And it’s exclusive. Sadly not even exclusive by itself, but with the Attack on Titan Vol.18 Limited Edition. Manga, not Bluray, so he’s only ¥1,800… plus fees. Sigh. I’d much prefer a little Petit set with the whole cast in Christmas outfits! [via GSC]

  • Levi is definitely the most popular boy from Attack on Titan, at least in terms of figures. It seems like everyone was rushing out to make a version of him, even companies that rarely touch male characters. But the vast majority of them seemed to feature him just… standing around, looking moody. And one of the most dynamic ones had a totally disturbing base. Thankfully for Levi fans, there ended up being a small handful of dynamic figures (sans scary head bases), with one of the more notable being Kotobukiya’s take on him to go along with their Eren (review) and Mikasa (review). Today we’re reviewing the last of this trio, so hit the jump and let’s get started!

  • Attack on Titan has been a veritable juggernaut in the figure world these past few years. We’re getting versions of seemingly every major character, including all the boys! But of course any female character is going to get the most attention, so you have the most figure options when it comes to Mikasa. But finding one with a unique and dynamic pose as well as a face that matches the anime/manga? That’s been a little more difficult, since most of the “action” poses are her about to jump, and one of the most dynamic ones kind of looks nothing like her. Enter Kotobukiya, whose male-focused ArtFX J line got its first female character in Mikasa! Since, you know, the rest of the gang  (Eren and Levi) were in the J line, it’d be kind of weird if she was a totally different classification. But this was the Mikasa figure that seemingly had it all: great pose, super interesting base, accurate face, and of course well priced. But does she live up to expectations? Hit the jump to find out!

  • This year at Toy Fair we already took a closer look at lots of Good Smile Company & Co’s goods: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Statues, Nendoroid Elsa, figma Sakura, figma Kirito, Nendoroid Mario, and Red Hood Miku. But they had tons more, and from many companies! It wasn’t just the usual umbrella there, but all the companies that they sell overseas including Gecco and Kaiyodo. The focus was definitely on American-friendly licenses and figures: lots of game merchandise, a ton of figmas and Nendoroids, and popular series like Fairy Tail and Kill la Kill. Check them all out in the gallery!
