Lelouch Lamperouge Archive

  • MegaHobby Expo Spring 2017 is almost upon us! And by “almost upon us” I actually mean “3 weeks away but it’s never too early for teasers amirite.” Because MegaHouse is already teasing some of the announcements they will have there. And it’s something I am very excited for, because I am unrepentant Lelouch trash. They will be doing a matching set of Lelouch & Suzaku figures based on an absolutely stunning illustration from CLAMP themselves. How beautiful are these boys?! Behold my trash babies in all their glory. MegaHouse’s Code Geass figures have been consistently great so I can’t wait to see the sculpts. [via MegaHobby]

  • I have been drooling over this release since we first got the teaser images a few weeks back. Maybe this makes me basic as hell, but Lelouch is my favorite male anime character, and the idea of owning such a huge figure of him? Pure excitement. I have yet to make a Smart Doll purchase (and in fact I haven’t ordered a doll in several years) but this might just be my first. Unlike Volks’ boy dolls, I think Danny Choo has made his distinctly male looking. Sure, there’s still the pretty boy anime vibe, but I think the face sculpt is far more masculine than what we’ve seen in the DD world. Given that we already have Spike and Lulu from the line, I wonder what boys are next? Probably Suzaku, I’d guess. [via takamine95’s Twitter]

  • While Kotobukiya’s Toy Fair booth is mostly focused on US-centric licenses like comic and movie toys (the new anime reveals are saved for Wonder Festival), they always bring a few on over for us. And, unsurprisingly, they’re mostly from shows that are popular here like Cowboy Bebop, Black Butler, Code Geass, and Cardcaptor Sakura. My favorite, though, was the gorgeous Charlotta from Granblue Fantasy. She’s so detailed but so tiny and cute! And the ruffles. So many of my favorite things.

  • Volks has recently hopped on the male Dollfie train, though let’s be honest: their first offering looked pretty much identical to their girl dolls. I’ve been dreaming of a true anime-style male doll for years and it seems like my dreams might finally be coming true–but not because of Volks. Danny Choo’s beautiful SmartDoll lineup will be adding a few boys to the mix, and he’s got some exciting licenses in the lineup. First off we have Cowboy Bebop‘s Spike Spiegel, who has yet to be revealed… but based on the blurry photo, he is 100% complete! Who would have ever thought we’d have a Spike doll? Times are changing. Then there’s Lelouch from Code Geass, who I am insanely excited for since he’s my favorite male anime character (well, him and the cat teacher from Princess Tutu, but we all know he’s not getting a doll). There are also some very heavy hints that Suzaku might be joining him too… [via Danny Choo]

  • Code Geass is such a nostalgic series for me. I used to spend Saturday nights chowing down on Chinese food with a friend and watching episodes of it. It was at a time in my life that I’d pretty much fallen away from anime, so in a way it was my re-introduction to the genre. And a hella good one at that! Figure releases from the show have always been sporadic but at the same time it seems like there’s always at least one in the works, be it a planned re-release or fancy prize figures. This year it’s Kotobukiya’s Lelouch, based on his Code Black appearance. He was unpainted at Wonder Festival, but it’s been a few months since then and now he’s all finished and shiny!

  • The vast majority of Kotobukiya’s figures sold in Japan are based on anime, game, and manga licenses. But of course in the US, the focus is more on comic and movie toys. But they still brought a few of their cute boys and girls! Especially because the ArtFX J line is increasingly popular in the US. They had figures like Genjo Sanzo from Saiyuki Reload Blast, their new Lelouch, the beautiful new Tony Taka girl, Emilia from Re:Zero, and their realistic Marie Rose from Dead or Alive. Their new Atem was also out on display, but sadly they’re making some sculpt tweaks so he was Do Not Photograph.

  • We have seen two of Kotobukiya’s most exciting Wonder Festival announcements (new Pokemon and Cowboy Bebop), but I don’t think anything could prepare me for the exciting boy-figure-flood that was about to happen. Not only did they have Spike on display and their sculpted Atem, but we’re getting a brand new Lelouch from Code Black!! Thank you figure Jesus. We are blessed this day. And that’s not all (obviously)! So much new stuff, like an adorable Madoka, High School Fleet figures, Type-Moon’s Heroine X, a bunny-tastic Airi Totoki, Sebastian Cu-Poche, and a sculpted Velvet Crowe. We also have a few announcements! They’ll be doing another Tony Taka butterfly sister (who looks suspiciously like Miku), Vira from Granblue Fantasy, and RyuuZU from Clockwork Planet.

  • The first few weeks of the new year are not very exciting for figure collectors. Almost all figure companies go on vacation until the 4th, and when they come back they’re not exactly at the top of their game. Releases come out at a trickle, and they tend to save the big figures for later in the month when we’ve all recovered from the holiday rush. But of course that doesn’t mean we have nothing for you this week! We’ve got a decent lineup of figures, ranging from very big to very small. Girls with swords, guys with guns, Vocaloids with headphones, we’ve got ’em all! Check them out after the jump.

  • While the original Code Geass has been over for a while, that hasn’t stopped manufacturers from putting out figures from the show. Surprisingly, while it features a large and buxom female cast, the boys seem to always get the most attention! Or perhaps not so surprising, considering how iconic Lelouch has become. At Tamashii Nations Bandai announced that they’d be adding him to their S.H.Figuarts lineup, and here he is! He’s looking great, though his face definitely isn’t a perfect representation of the character design. But then again this is an action figure, and you rarely find one that’s 100% accurate. For what he is, Lulu looks pretty cool! He’ll retail for ¥3,800 with an April release, and look for orders to open tonight. [via Bandai]

  • There sure is a lot of exciting news coming out of Tamashii Nations! This is one I’ve been waiting for: a Lelouch Lamperouge S.H.Figuarts. Bandai has had the Code Geass license for a while and has really only given us some sub-par Chibi-Arts like permanently sitting C.C, but I wanted a good representation of the wonderful Lulu. Well, ask and you shall receive! We’re getting Lelouch in his awesome Zero gear, complete with mask. While figmas are great and all, the figma version of Lulu was only in the school uniform. So this is great news for Code Geass fans! [via Happinet’s Twitter]
