@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?

Good Smile Company is pushing out Nendoroids from Attack On Titan literally as fast as they can sculpt them: we’ve already gotten chibified versions of Mikasa and Eren, and it was a very short while ago that they teased that Levi would be joining the lineup. Now they’re doing the full reveal of his sculpt, and while I haven’t really been crazy about any of the AoT figures so far Levi has already won me over!
I mean, the standard faceplate is already 100x more awesome than Eren & Mikasa’s. The little angry lines, d’aww! Of course his body is pretty much identical to Eren’s (which sounds kind of… dirty out of context), so I’m really hoping they don’t start reusing accessories. Let’s see a mop, Good Smile!

One of my favorite figures from this past Summer WonFest was definitely Max Factory’s jaw-dropping sculpt of Benten from ZONE-00. It’s sculpted by Nanako, Chieri’s protege, and shows his influence loud and clear. The thinly spiraled hair and detailed wings pretty much scream “Chieri” to the point where I was about 90% sure this was his work! So good job, Nanako. You’ve come pretty far since that first Shining Wind figure.
To many people’s surprise, Benten was revealed to be a (biologically, at least) male character, who chooses to dress & act in a feminine manner. For some people this made Benten a instant no-buy but come on, this is a totally gorgeous figure! Especially painted, uhnf. Those wings!
note: absolutely no transphobic language will be tolerated on Plastikitty, including the word “trap” and any derogatory discussion of gender & sexuality. Keep it respectful, people!

Sailor Moon’s 20th anniversary has marked a flood of long-awaited merchandise, everything from action figures to chibis to actual scales… though unfortunately all from the same group of companies (so far). We have had one set of petit-style trading figures, but fans are pretty desperate for some non-jointed, properly proportioned sailor scouts. And finally, our wish is being granted!
And, no surprise, they’re coming from Bandai. But they look freaking awesome, so I’m not going to complain. We get all the scouts and Luna & Artemis! And at ¥4,980 a box–which, yes, is expensive for trading figures. But come on, it’s Sailor Moon. They know we’re gonna pay up no matter what.

Now that Good Smile Company has shown off all their announced Attack On Titan Nendoroids–Colossal Titan, Mikasa, & Eren–it’s right about time for them to announce another one. Because come on, we all know this is going to be like Madoka and every single important character will get a Nendoroid… and a figma… and a scaled figure.
It doesn’t take a genius to guess that the next character would be Levi, especially after the crazy popularity of his figure from Sentinel. Well indeed he is next, and already sculpted! We only have a back shot but he looks, um, just like Eren.. but with different hair! And a cape! Wow. Hopefully his accessories are as awesome as what we’ve seen from the rest of the line.

We’ve already shown you a few of the more memorable pieces at Good Smile Company’s booth: Belldandy & Holly Bell, the Attack On Titan goods, 7th Dragon Miku, Bayonetta, and Nyaruko. But of course there are more than just a few figures in a booth as big as Good Smile’s! They had lots of Madoka merchandise as you’d expect, in fact it was almost their whole lineup! Nendoroids and scaled figures a plenty.
In fact there were tons of Nendoroids from a lot of different shows and series as well as figmas and scaled figures. We’ve got Vocaloids, Samus, Dangan Ronpa, and a few of their past exclusives. Check them all out in the gallery!

Bandai is one of the few Japanese companies with a US distributor, which means they come to pretty much all of the cons over here (or at least, all of the big ones!). And they even let us get a peek at some of the more important prototypes–and these days, what’s more important than their Sailor Moon line? With pre-orders for Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury and Sailor Mars flying like hotcakes they’re pretty much the hottest thing on the block.
All 5 of them were at NYCC, though sadly Jupiter and Venus aren’t painted. Well… they are painted, just not here–they only brought they grey prototypes, since presumably the painted ones are off taking promo shots so we can order them. But even without paint, they look great! Mars is my favorite so far but Venus is looking amazing. That hair sculpt, yes please!

When I was a little girl I had these cutout paper dolls of Sailor Moon and all the Inner Senshi that a friend and I used to play with. This was way before Sailor Moon was dubbed and brought over to the US–I lived in NYC, so tons of stores in Chinatown imported this stuff before Sailor Moon got big. And what that friend and I wanted more than anything else was a big, beautiful figure of Sailor Moon. I thought my prayers were finally answered when Bandai and Volks collaborated and showed us that jaw-dropping sculpt… but it seems like I got my hopes up a bit too high.
Bandai is not known for their scaled figures, and there’s a good reason for that. Their painting skills blow. Apparently they don’t think shading is a thing, which is sadly apparent on Usagi. They took a gorgeous sculpt and made it look incredibly cheap. And the kicker? She’s ¥8,800. Thanks, Bandai!

The nice thing about magazine scans is how nice and neat and predictable they are. Scans go up in cleanly scanned images, usually 3 to 4 in a single scan. I translate the info (unless, like today, they go up after I’ve turned in for tonight), chop up the images, write up the post, add some witty commentary (you know you love it) and bam, it’s done. But today we’re getting, uh, what must be half of the scans. And they’re not actually scans… they’re icky quality photos. What a story, Mark.
But of course there’s still figures! Some figures. Mostly of Shining World girls. A LOT of Shining World girls. And, surprisingly Fairy Tail characters! Hyakka makes an appearance, along with 7 Sins, so let’s hit the jump and get started.

Of all the scaled figures from Attack on Titan announced at Summer WonFest, did anyone think this one would be the first to hit pre-order status? Sentinel is notoriously slow–they have figures from over a year ago that haven’t even made it to the paint stage. So I assumed that the sculpt of Levi that they showed off would take a very long time to see any progress. Turns out they put in a rush order, though… I’m not sure if that was a good thing.
Let’s face it: his face looks like a drug addict. I know it kind of fits the manga art but oh my god it’s just… absurd and laughable. Thankfully he’s only ¥8000 and pre-orders open September 27th. But that’s not all! If you think this face sucks (like pretty much everyone) there’s a second version that will be sold on Animate’s online store (meaning you’ll need a proxy). You can check out the uncolored sculpt in the gallery, but it already looks a hell of a lot better. Both versions are set for a January release.

Dangan-Ronpa has a lot of fans, and the figure companies seem to be eager to please them. First we had Algernon Project’s Junko, then Monokuma, Monomi and Makoto Nendoroids, and then of course Phat!’s gorgeous sculpt of Kyouko. I honestly didn’t think we would be getting any scaled figures of the boys though, but it turns out I was wrong! Algernon Project will be releasing a figure of Nagito Komaeda, who gives me some serious Bakura vibes. Seriously, the hair!
It seems he’ll have at least two display options: hands like you see them in the header, or held out in from of him with, uh, a… wavy dark line? Nice attention to detail, Algernon Project! I can totally make out what that is! On one hand options are nice: on the other, they jack up the price. Hopefully he looks good painted, I found Junko to be a bit of a disappointment.
