  • I will be honest: when it comes to Wonder Festival, I never really look forward to MegaHouse’s booth. They tend to save all their good stuff for their own event… which is MegaHobby! And that time has finally come. The star of the show was, of course, the amazing Suzaku & Lelouch duo they teased earlier. And my how beautiful these sculpts are. Of course they had all the usuals: Naruto (including the adorable Naruto Girls line), Dragon Ball Z, Gintama, Gundam, One Piece, and my new favorite from them… Zatch Bell. Check ’em all out in the gallery below! [UPDATE] They have also announced a new Pokemon figures: Ash with Greninja and Pikachu! [via AmiAmi’s Twitter & 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]

  • Were you excited for magazine scans this month? Well prepare to get un-excited, because we had like… 3. And one was news-worthy. Thankfully, the thing we did get is one I really care about! Gundam Wing was a staple of my childhood. My mom and I would yell “HEEEROOOOOO” at each other all the time, drove my mom crazy. But man, so much nostalgia. I was absolutely over the moon when we found out that Heero & Relena would be getting figures, and we finally have the sculpts. They look… really good, guys. I was expecting low-effort from MegaHouse to be honest, basic standing poses, but they’re so in character! Good job MH. For once I have no qualms with you. [via takezo1101]

    Check Out The Sculpt For Gundam Wing’s Relena & Heero

  • MegaHouse is the company that runs MegaHobby Expo, but somehow they’re always the company I’m least excited to cover. I mean, they had some great stuff (like the Pokemon and Digimon figures we already saw) but overall they’re just kind of… lackluster? There are some kind of cool announcements, like the fact that we’re getting bikini figures of the Bikini Warriors girls–they showed off Mage and Paladin! But overall? Yeah, not too pumped. I think that’s because there is a big focus on shows like One Piece and Gintama, which are just not my jam. But if you are a fan, this was a great event! We have announcements for quite a few new P.O.Ps, including (another) bikini Nami, a lounging Sanji, and Trafalgar Law… as a girl? There’s also a new Bulma–after years of Bulma figure drought, we’re now (happily) drowning in her! Also the reveal of a Sailor Saturn Petit Chara Deluxe. Funny that they’re doing her before any of the other senshi! Last but not least, we’re getting figures of┬áRelena Peacecraft and Heero Yuy from Alpha x Omega! Aw yeah Gundam Wing. MegaHouse will also be making Asuka Sugou from Shin Seiki GPX Cyber Formula. [via figsoku]

  • It’s time for your monthly mediocre magazine scans! It’s been well over a year, and I’m not over how lackluster they are now. Because once again, it’s almost all MegaHouse! Okay, we do have some Volks stuff this time, including a brand-new Saber Bride for their overpriced CharaGumin line that makes me angry. It’s like “wow, that sculpt is awesome… too bad it’s going to be insanely expensive and look terrible without lots of paint detail work!” SIGH. Okay, the MegaHouse stuff! Most excitingly, Pokemon’s James is painted to go along with Jessie. And he has a little Meowth! Plus, he’s a standard release (thank god). We also have figures from Gintama, One Piece, Gundam Reconguista in G, Shinrabanshou Chocolate, and more. Check them all out in the gallery! [via takezo1101]

  • It has been a very long time since we had a nearly full batch of magazine scans, but it seems like the tides are turning! I mean, they’re still just photos of pages and not actual scans, but it’s clear that the golden age of 2chan uploading everything for us is over. And I’ll take what I can get! This week we have… a whole lot of MegaHouse. Seriously, 70% of these pages are about MegaHouse. Updates on their Sailor Moon, Digimon, Naruto, One Piece, and Gundam lines. Barely any of it is even new! But they did show off one shiny new sculpt: Arcana Kiraseiten from Shinrabanshou Chocolate, who looks adorable and amazing. Of course the news we all want is Hobby Japan-specific news: updates on their figure lines! And we do indeed have a few. There are two new Bikini Warriors girls, a Valkyrie from Tony Taka and a Hunter from Hiroe Rei. I have to say, despite the stupid name and concept I am kind of loving the art for these girls. And Dark Elf’s sculpt looks amazing! We have yet another new Seven Deadly Sins figure: an alternate Lucifer. Well, ANOTHER alternate Lucifer, this time in full idol gear. It’s so cute but… man, they are milking this hard. And last but not least, Alter is FINALLY making a figure of Charles from Hyakka Ryouran. I’ve been waiting literally 5 years for this, I’m so excited. Check out all that and more in the gallery! [via Takezo1101’s Twitter]

  • Since MegaHouse is basically the founder and host of MegaHobby, you can bet that they brought a lot of figures to the event. I mean, it is their event. We’ve seen the Digimon lineup, but there’s more! So much more. Like their Sailor Moon Rei & Ami, who are as you’d expect: mediocre, but not so abjectly terrible that hardcore fans will pass up an order. They also announced that Naru (!!) will be joining the line.Their Gundam & Yamato girls lines are on a roll as we saw in scans, and they had tons on hand including the gorgeous Akira Yamamoto and Fumino Hoshino’s fabulous spandex shorts. And the next Gundam girl? Aida Surgan! The small 1/10 girls line was on display as well, with Hiyori Iki from Noragami, Hisa Takegi and Misaka Mikoto. What about their usual lineup of boys boys boys? We’ve got them in droves! Naruto, Itachi & Kakashi (in Hokage mode!) from The Last Naruto movie. Like One Piece? There’s Killer, Zoro, Koala, Eustass Kid, Sabo, and Mr.2 Bon Kure. Plus those basketball boys everyone loves! Oh, and we can’t show you this, but MegaHouse is FINALLY working on the DragonBall Z cast in a larger scale: Goku and Vegeta will be first up.

  • Magazine scans have been getting smaller and smaller every month. This phenomenon, combined with Wonder Festival only a few days away, means that we only have a few things for you. And by “a few” I mean 6 scans. No, that’s not a joke. There are 6 things here. Step up your game, scanner dude in Japan! First and most importantly (to me) is a new version of Senhime/Sen Tokugawa that Alter will be adding to their Hyakka line. She really seems to have a lot of Seven Sins influence… not surprising seeing that’s what the artist has been working on recently! We’ve also got full color scans of Amakuni’s Lucy Heartfilia, who will have two different hair looks! We’ve also got a 1/10 scale Aila Jyrkiainen from MegaHouse (since when did they make figures in that scale?), a scan of Phat! Ranko that has zero updates (thanks), and a TON of KanColle announcements from Broccoli. They’ll be taking on Shigure Kai Ni, Murasame Kai, Yuudachi Kai Ni, and Shiratsuyu Kai. [via Figure/gk]

  • I look back on the days of neat, crisp and organized magazine scans with such nostalgia. What a time to be alive and blogging! Now all we get is this mess. Chopped up scans missing info (and probably half the figures), and half of them are cellphone pictures. Oh goodie. Well, there’s not a whole lot here so let’s just dive in! Good Smile Company’s Eren Yeagar is sculpted, and by none other than Kiking! And he looks badass as all hell. We also have sculpts for MegaHouse’s Elpeo Puru from Gundam ZZ, peeks at figmas Hibiki, EV Mirai Miku (who we just saw full shots of), Chariot, and Uno Uzume. Of course we can’t leave out Nendoroids! It looks like the Solid Snake sculpt is finally coming along. And last, we have a new figure of Yagyu Jubei from Aizu Project! [via Figure/GK]
