Dragonball Z Archive

  • We are about a week away from the two big winter events, Toy Fair & Winter Wonder Festival. But before then, a little taste of that event-reveal excitement! Yes, it’s time for ~yet another prize fair.~ I do love prize figures, but I had to cut myself off because man do those boxes add up into a wall really quickly. This time around, we have of course all the usuals: Dragon Ball Z (I need that Piccolo), Fate/Stay Night, IDOLM@STER, Sword Art Online, Bakemonogatari, Evangelion, Disney, Kantai Collection, et cetera. Everything from cute to creepy (can we stop with the big-head Disney Princesses now?). There are some newcomers on the scene too, like Touhou Project and BLAME! The star for me is that Anzu Futaba in the header: that sculpt does NOT look like a prize figure! [via Dengeki]

    Check Out The Cuties From The 47th Prize Fair

  • 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!

  • It’s almost fall, and you know what that means–new season, new Prize Fair. They’re on the 45th already, if you can believe it! And like always, the big 4 (FuRyu, Taito, SEGA, & Banpresto) had all the upcoming prize figures out on display. I always try to swear off prize figures, but like clockwork there are one or two that draw me back in. This time, funnily enough, it’s a collab I’ve basically ignored because I’m interested: the Madogatari figures. That Kiss-Shot in Homura garb, hnnng! There’s lots of other great stuff, and of course all the regulars (Evangelion, Miku, KanColle, Disney, Dragon Ball Z) were out in force. Check them all out in the gallery below! [via Dengeki]

  • 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]

  • You  know what they say: new season, new prize fair! Okay, so only I say that, but it’s basically true. Prize Fairs are a never-ending event that seem to strike when the weather changes. I know it’s technically been spring for months, but here in NY it’s been incredibly chilly until just this week. Finally, warm weather! And new figures! We have quite a few awesome things here, and some less than awesome ones as well–like the incredibly creepy Disney Princess line that will haunt my dreams. But along with the nightmares are cool releases like a bunch of Dragonball Z goodies including, at long last, Mr. Satan! We’ve also got Macross, Evangelion, Miku Hatsune, Fate/Grand Order, Kantai Collection, and a whole lot more… like my persona favorite, the Okami noodle toppers. Check them all out below!

  • Golden Week is over! Which means we finally have news again, oh joy. And it will come as a surprise to no one that MegaHouse’s Dragon Ball Gals line has been successful enough to warrant a pretty large expansion. I mean, it’s a show that 99% of anime fans watched as kids, so of course we want more and more merch from it. Today we’ve got a ton of new additions. As you can tell from the header, they’re doing Lunch! Apparently both “sides” of her, so I don’t know how that will work. Alternate heads? We’re also getting two more Bulmas–a recolor of her bunny outfit and a totally new sculpt. Then there’s Android 18 (took them long enough!). Last but not least is kid Chi-Chi in her ridiculous pink armor, which I am absolutely dying for. [via Shonen Jump]

  • 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]

  • A new year, a new batch of magazine scans! Sadly with 2016 we aren’t getting any good changes. AKA, it’s still almost all MegaHouse. I miss old scans so bad, guys, but I need to get over it! Just appreciate what we’ve got! Because there’s a lot of nostalgia here. I mean, there’s the usual One Piece figures (including some totally over the top anatomy as per usual), yet another figma Kirito (we totally need that), and Alpha x Omega’s Eri! Then… nostalgia train. We’ve got Digimon, Dragonball Z, and Pokemon. Lots and lots of Pokemon. Ash and Misty are here, of course, with basically no updates. But we’ve got new ones! Cynthia will be joining the line, along with Steven Stone! Talk about characters I never expected to see in figure form. And why is Metagross so freaking tiny? But whatever. More Pokemon. Not gonna complain. [via takezo1101’s Twitter]
