    Anime Japan 2017

    Another day, another event in Japan! This time around it’s Anime Japan 2017, a smaller event that only a handful of companies attend. But they still had quite a few new goodies to show us.

    Max Factory Announces figma Chono Masahiro

    The figma line has become very diverse over the years. We started out with the expected: Japanese anime, manga, and video games. But it has expanded quite a bit since then, with everything from US movie licenses to figmas based on classic art. So what’s next? Why, obviously real-life wrestlers, of course!

    Are you confused? Because I am confused, but also a little excited. We’ve had real-people figmas before but this one just seems so random and whimsical. I hope they do a whole line. And we get some US wrestlers, too! Who would you like to see in figma form?

    Winter WonFest 2017: figmas
