@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

Oh Saber, I’ll never be able to quit you. Just when I’ve said to myself “that’s it, no more Saber figures! No matter what!” Companies whip out something like Pajama Saber or, in this instance, a figure based on some of my very favorite Saber art (technically Saber Zero). I’ve wanted something based on this for a long time, and we did get a kind of terrible trading figure from Kaiyodo but we all know that doesn’t count.
Sadly this is the worst possible news ever because she’s being made by Aniplex. I don’t for a second believe they are manufacturing their own figures: based on the glimpses of her sculpt, which you can see in the gallery, I assume they are using GSC’s factory. But this means that, like Maiko Madoka, she will most likely be an exclusive. And not the kind you can use a proxy for, the “you can never own this unless you sell a kidney” kind. DAMN YOU ANIPLEX. And she’s even my favorite scale, 1/6. You’re breaking my heart, Aniplex.

Since Sega just showed off all their new prizes at Wonder Festival, this season’s Prize Fair was a little more subdued than usual. In fact, we pretty much only had 2 companies representing the prize figure world: Taito and Banpresto. Taito didn’t have any new information, but we do have the sculpts for their new Persona 4 Area figures! Elizabeth in particular is looking pretty awesome.
To make up for the lack of content, Banpresto brought way more stuff than usual! We’ve got the franchises we always see, like Fate/Zero, One Piece, Precure and Macross, but they had lots of other goodies too. The ones that catch my eye are the dearth of Pokemon figures: everything from plushes (including the new Eevelution, that was fast) to the awesome Eevee in the header to N himself! Oh, and they are also working on a fantastic looking SQ prize for Soniko, making up for the crazy expensive Ichiban Kuji one!

December was (obviously) the last month of 2012, and boy was it a doozy. Even with the massive amount of delays that came late in the year it was just totally jam-packed with releases. In fact, this might actually be our biggest month of orders… ever. Well, maybe excluding July of 2010, where we had an entire wall of loot from SDCC. But in terms of imports, yeah, it’s a bit overwhelming! So hit the jump to check out all the goodies.

While most companies keep their sales numbers under wraps, Good Smile Company has never been shy about flaunting these as well as which of their figures sell best. At the end of the year they release a handy list of their top 30 best-selling figures: not just from Good Smile, but from their sister companies as well! Of course it’s usually just GSC and Max Factory that crack the top 30. Hit the jump to check out who made it and some of the surprising exclusions!

Well that was fast! MegaHouse’s Waver Velvet was just announced in magazine scans, and already he’s completed. Talk about a speedy painjob. Personally, I have to say that this version doesn’t hold a candle to Alter’s super-moe Waver, but I do know quite a few people who prefer this one! The book is a nice choice, and I do like his determined face. Though the fact that he’s an exclusive will probably make the decision a lot easier for a ton of people.

Welcome to another month of scans! We’ve got tons of awesome this time, including FIVE boys! No joke, five of ‘em. Oh, and some ladies as well of course. Lolis, busty demons, kick-ass steak eaters, and graceful penguin commanders. And, of course, the necessary NSFW girls and bikini babes. Check them all out after the jump!

Welcome to two months of loot in one! Actually it’s kind of three: as you may or may not have noticed, we didn’t have a August loot post either. It’s a long story, but basically AmiAmi has been smushing our orders together oddly so we get things late (but some early–most of our October was here before the September items). So some August items squeaked their way in! Hit the jump to get started on our most action-packed loot post yet.

More boys! I’ll be honest, I was never that excited at the announcement of a Waver Velvet from Fate/Zero in Alter’s Altair line. The show bored me to tears and I just couldn’t get on board with his character. Plus his design falls a bit flat for me, so even with Alter’ usual attention to detail he’s just… not doing it for me.
That is, until I saw the extras. He comes with a MINI RIDER and a blushing face! Ahh, so cute. Like, to die for cuteness levels over here. Damn you Alter, getting me to hop on board with figures I didn’t even wants!
