  • As a company, MegaHouse absolutely bamboozles me. On one hand we have their cute, nostalgic, simple-but-well-made lines like their amazing Digimon and Pokemon figures, which were both out and about at MegaHobby. Then they bust out the occasional magnificent sculpt, like our header girl: Airi from Queen’s Blade! I cannot explain my excitement when I saw her: I always wanted a great Airi figure but assumed that time had come & gone long ago. But no, MegaHouse to the rescue! Then we have the other half of their line: the painfully tacky and often out-of-character girls, especially from beloved shows like Naruto and Dragonball Z. They’ve butchered so many of my faves. Just look at that Hinata. It hurts my soul. And I remember C.C in a lot more clothing, don’t you? The One Piece girls obviously fall into this category: the anatomy has gotten so bad that I kind of think it’s some big elaborate joke. The sculpting for this “side” of them is often simple to a fault and looks like it could have been from 8 years ago. Put Airi, the new Digimon boys, and that awful stripper pole Nami together: do they look like the same company? What is going on with MegaHouse?!?! [via moeyo]

  • MegaHouse is absolutely the most consistent manufacturer at any event. You can guess before seeing anything what 90% of their figures will be. We’ve got One Piece, Digimon, Pokemon, Gintama, Naruto, Tiger & Bunny, Kuroko no Basket. Of course they always throw us a few curveballs (no Dragon Ball Z?!) and at least one pleasant surprise. This time around it’s C.C from Code Geass! Of course her dress is coming off because recently MH has been incapable of making a female character who isn’t halfway disrobed or busting out of her top. Android 18, Chi Chi, now C.C…. sigh….. she’s sexy enough already! [via girlshobby]

  • Ah MegaHouse, that company I love to hate. I sure do love how many nostalgic figures they make, and I sure do hate how the best ones are always exclusive. Like Angewomon and Angemon. And you know, given the detail, that these two will follow the same pattern. SIGH. But I’m still excited, just can’t contain the digihype. We are finally getting my favorite ‘mon: Lady Devimon! Now that we have her and Angewomon, is Mastemon next up? I’d definitely pay proxy fees for that. We also have Dukemon Crimson Mode, whose sculpt looks pretty awesome so far. [via mega_girlshobby]

  • I tend to think of MegaHouse as a company that thrives on nostalgia. If it’s a new series, they hardly give it the time of day: it’s all about our childhood shows and long-running anime. So imagine my surprise at their big MegaHobby announcement: Yuri on Ice figures! If you told me they would be the first to hop on what I’m sure will be an insane figure hype-train, I would have laughed, but here we are. Of course they had a ton of nostalgia going on too. Their full Pokemon line was out, looking impressive, and showing off the Ash & Charizard figure we’ve all been waiting for. Plus a huge Digimon one too! Sadly, the new Android 18 is just as tacky and inaccurate as the first, but it’s kind of countered by a non-boobytastic Tsunade. Also a recolor of their gorgeous Elf!We’ve got Sailor Moon, Zatch Bell, One Piece, Naruto, D. Gray-Man, Space Battleship Yamato, Gundam, and so much more. Check them all out in the gallery!

  • My excitement for MegaHouse’s Digimon line certainly started out sky-high. But that was when, you know, I could actually buy them in regular stores and they weren’t all exclusives. We’ve had a spate of exclusive mons–Angemon & Angewomon, Garurumon, Beelzebumon and Renamon–and I’m sure these new ones will be no exception. So as always, not gonna get my hopes up. We have two updates–the first is that Veemon and Daisuke and painted! Then we have a brand-new sculpt, Leomon and Juri Katou from Digimon Tamers. Tamers was past my time so I don’t have any nostalgic value attached to the characters, but I must admit that Leomon looks absolutely magnificent. [via Mega GirlsHobby]

  • The star of MegaHouse’s booth was clearly their perfect Sailor Moon, and while that alone was enough to sway my heart they also had some other stuff. Like Dragonball Z, One Piece, Gundam, Naruto, Digimon… all the stuff we expect at this point. But we also got some cool announcements, like Zatch Bell figures (!!). Along with a beautiful Liko from Active Raid, who looks like a fancy Vocaloid and I am totally on board with that. Also with the lil Naruto tailed beasts, how cute is that? [via AmiAmi]

  • Since MegaHobby Expo is basically an event hosted by MegaHouse, you see a lot of them at events. A LOT. In fact, I think at least half the figures we saw at it were from them. And to be honest, I’m usually so unimpressed by their offerings that I breeze right on through. But this year? They’re stepping it up! We already saw the new Pokemon figures but they had a ton of goodies. First up we’ve got their Gundam Wing figures painted. I feel like I’ve been waiting so long for these! We also have a few new Digimon figures and an announcement for Daisuke & Veemon. Their Lunch is painted (and actually two separate figures!), we’ve got a brand-new adult Hinata, tons of One Piece, and so much more. Check them all out in the gallery! [UPDATE] Added Android 18. I have to say, I’m kind of disappointed in this line after seeing her & Lunch(s). They’re really pushing the sex appeal and I know DBZ has its moments but it’s also a kid’s show! My nostalgia is being Rule 34’d. [via AmiAmi’s Twitter & whitenoize]

  • I’ve been playing a lot of Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth recently, so I’ve got Digimon on the brain. And while I am thankful that we’re finally getting figures from it, I’m still so torn that it’s MegaHouse who is delivering. Because half of them are freaking exclusives and it drives me up a wall. Today we’ve got not one but two figures I want but can’t afford. Oh boy! First up is a dual set of Renamon & her tamer Ruki Makino. This set retails for ¥6,800 with an October release, so at least they’re reasonably priced. Then we’ve got Beelzebumon Blast Mode (can we talk about how stupid his name is? It should be Beelzemon or Beelzebubmon, sheesh), who will cost you a whopping ¥13,800. At least he comes with a little Impmon? I have to say, given that we got Angewomon I was so hoping LadyDevimon or even Mastemon was next. Oh well.

  • It’s finally happened, guys! Magazine scans that aren’t 90% MegaHouse and 10% stuff we don’t care about. But you know what they say: be careful what you wish for. Sure, there’s lots of companies here, but there’s almost nothing new. Usually we get at least one or two figure reveals and a lot of new sculpts/paint. This time? Yeah, almost all of this was at Wonder Festival. We have some figmas, FREEing’s Lyrical Nanoha figures (I feel like we haven’t had a scaled Nanoha girl in ages!), lots of Love Live!, some Kantai Collection, and of course lots of MegaHouse-centered pages. Almost all of MH’s stuff is One Piece or Dragonball Z (their new Bulma is painted!), though the new Digimon trading figures did make an appearance. What is up with them? Why a toilet?

  • Ah, MegaHouse. I love to hate you. They make a mix of things I don’t care about at all (the anatomy on One Piece ladies continues to bamboozle me) and things I want more than life itself (Pokemon, Digimon, Sailor Moon). Then they go and have middling quality, outrageous prices, and make half their stuff exclusive! MegaHouse, you’re killing me. And once again at WonFest: they’re killing me! The bikini Bikini Warriors girls (now that is a strange phrase) are so gorgeous. And, of course, will be exclusive. We also have the usual Naruto, One Piece, Gintama, & Dragonball Z, along with a new announcement: the boys from Ensemble Stars!. [via amiami]
