    Winter WonFest 2018: MegaHouse’s Blastoise

    Nothing warms my heart more than figures that make me relive the best parts of my childhood. Well, those and cats. And dogs. And really good pie. But, for the context of this post, we’re talking about nostalgia. So far MegaHouse has really knocked the nostalgia-train out of the park with Sailor Moon, Digimon, and of course Pokemon!

    Tonight they unveiled the sculpt for a big ol’ Blastoise, aka the best of the original starters. Fite me. Oh and Gary Oak is there too, but who cares about that dweeb amirite?

    Winter WonFest 2018: MegaHouse’s Persona 5 Arsene

    With every entry into the Persona series we get progressively more figures. I predict that by the time 6 comes out (10 years from now, let’s be realistic) the figure market will be nothing but Persona. And I’m kind of okay with that. Today we have an unexpected announcement: MegaHouse is taking on the persona Arsene!

    Given their love for monsters (Digimon, Pokemon, etc) perhaps this isn’t that much of a shock, but the level of detail surely is. Those wings!

Then they bust out the occasional magnificent sculpt, like our header girl: Airi from <em>Queen’s Blade</em>!

The <em>One Piece</em> girls obviously fall into this category: the anatomy has gotten so bad that I kind of think it’s some big elaborate joke. The sculpting for this “side” of them is often simple to a fault and looks like it could have been from 8 years ago.
