    MegaHouse’s Raidou Kuzunoha Gets A Sky-High Pricetag

    MegaHouse, why ;~;

    When this figure was first announced, I was bouncing off the walls with excitement, and the sculpt reveal made me feel like heaven had opened up and a choir of angels had descended upon me. I waited patiently for the painted version, and now it’s here… but I’m kind of distracted by the price. Want to take a guess?

    ¥12,800. HAHA NICE JOKE MEGAHOUSE. So funny. They’ve always been one of the more affordable companies so I have no clue where they came up with this GSC-level pricing. And come on, even with the cape not even GSC would price him this high. What is happening?! At least he’s a March release and not in a packed winter month…

    Summer Wonder Festival 2013: MegaHouse

    Every year, MegaHouse is without a doubt the most disappointing company at Wonder Festival. They’re one of the biggest PVC producers, yet year after year they bring nothing new. You know what new figures they had this year? Umi Kousaka from IDOLM@STER Million Live!, which we’re not allowed to show you. LITERALLY THAT IS IT. Oh, and announcements for Melda Dietz and Juuzo Okita from Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199. Wow.

    Of course they had lots of figures we’ve already seen from Dragon’s Crown, One Piece, Devil Summoner and more that you can check out in the gallery! Meanwhile I’ll just sit over here and sulk. *grumble grumble*

    MegaHobby Expo Autumn 2012: MegaHouse’s Raidou Kuzunoha

    I AM SCREAMING.

    Oh man, my wildest dreams have just come true. Megahouse is doing a figure of Raidou Kuzunoha. Raidou figure. RAIDOU FIGUUUURE. Ahem, okay, I’ll try to calm down. But seriously, how great is this for MegaTen fans? Best news ever? Now we just need a Demi-Fiend. I swear to god MegaHouse if you do that I will declare you my favorite company. No joke.

    Check Out the Raidou Kuzunoha Nendoroid You Wish You Could Own

    While the Persona games seem to be getting a lot of attention recently, the rest of the Shin Megami Tensei series is getting left in the dust. Devil Summoner in particular is quite overlooked, though it’s definitely one of my favorite games in the series. I mean, who doesn’t love Raidou?

    Sadly, no. This is a garage kit from Mikakunin Kakou Buttai that will be available at Summer WonFest. Hopefully Good Smile stops by their booth and gets some inspiration!
