  • Good Smile Company had a small booth at San Diego Comic Con, but they managed to sneak in a few new goodies like Nathan Drake, the Suicide Squad Nendoroids, and Shredder & Bebop. But of course there was lots more going on! Many of the Wonder Festival exclusive figures were on display (and on sale!). They had the gorgeous huke Saber Alter, many of the newer Nendoroid & figma releases (especially video game related goodies), and that brand new Naruto announcement out & about.

  • You have to wonder why Nintendo (and other video game companies) took such a long time to open up their licenses. Given the huge success they’ve had with Bandai and Good Smile Company, can you imagine all the figures we could have had? I know, it’s a tragedy. But thankfully we have them now, and GSC has really been leading the pack. If you thought their Toy Fair display was impressive, wait till you see what they had for NYCC! Well, we saw that preview of the Link figma & scaled figure, but we have tons more pictures. Along with the Link figma and Toon Link Nendoroid, as well as figures from Mario, Kirby, Animal Crossing, Megaman, Fire Emblem… and more! Check them all out below.

  • Good Smile Company has really been on a roll with the video game-based Nendoroids, huh? Link, Kirby, and now we’re getting the full preview of Mega Man! Or Rockman, if you’re fancy and live in Japan. Either way, he was painted at this past Summer Wonder Festival, so I guess the quick turnaround isn’t that much of a surprise. Like many of their recent Nendos, Mega Man comes with a ton of extras. There are two effect parts for his Mega Buster (regular and charged), an E Tank, and an absolutely amazing damaged face that is just perfectly goofy. Plus he has some extra joints, for ultimate poseability. And there is, of course, a GSC shop bonus–a death effect sheet. Orders open tonight! [via Kahotan]

  • Or should I call him Rockman because it sounds so much cooler? Either way, who gives a damn when we’re getting an amazing Nendoroid of MEGAMAN! Yeah, we already knew he was coming, but now we can actually see all of him. I’m super excited as this brings me way back to the days of attempting to play the NES and SNES Megaman games as a kid and failing miserably. And then spending my Saturdays watching that NT Warrior show that was super underrated. Either way, just look at him, he’s so tiny! And cute! And pissed off! And coming your way eventually! Ahh!

  • Wonder Festival is tomorrow (!!), so it’s time for… teasers! Lots and lots today. We’ll start out with the big dog, Good Smile Company. Usually I think they give away way too much in their teasers but this year is decidedly more vague than others which I appreciate. We have a ton of Nendoroids: petit sets for Touken Ranbu and Love Live!, Saitama from One Punch Man, Taihou from KanColle, and… Megaman! Their Greatest Idol version of Miku Hatsune also seems to be painted and ready to rock. And it seems like Nendoroid Chuni Kafuu has been painted! I wonder what other surprises the event will hold… [via Kahotan]

  • After Kidrobot’s buyout by Neca, I think we were all a little curious about the direction they’d be moving in. I mean, Kidrobot has always been a niche company and now they’re owned by a merchandising juggernaut. We’ve already seen one of their new lines at Toy Fair, and a licensed one at that: the Adventure Time series. And from what we’ve seen at the event, they’re trying to strike a balance between old and new, original and licensed merchandise. For example, we have a Megaman figure and a line of Cartman blind boxes, but they’ve also announced a line of 3″ Trickys! It’s nice to see them using some of the other Dunny-family sculpts in this size, especially because it might mean an artist series in the future. For their 10-year anniversary, they’re also re-releasing the original three soild colorway Dunnys–yes, the super-ultra-rare ones! While all 3 colors (black, red, silver) are getting redone, we got word that silver will be the rarest of the trio. It’ll be interesting to see what the new management brings out for SDCC!

  • Megaman is one of the most iconic video game characters and, considering the success of Kidrobot’s Street Fighter series, it makes complete and total sense for Capcom to also offer up the license for Megaman to make the transition to chibified vinyl. Now, this isn’t exactly a new announcement or anything as Kidrobot had posted about it a few weeks ago, but now we have pictures of the cases and know the full lineup for both the regular mini series and keychain series as well as their ratios. I really like Megaman’s look, but the rest of the series doesn’t do much for me, so I’ll have to see how the final figures look since they weren’t on hand.

  • Bluefin, Bandai’s North America distributor, attends pretty much every major convention with lots of goodies in tow! For New York Comic Con they had many D-Arts and Figuarts ZERO on display from their most popular licenses like Persona 4, Tiger & Bunny, and One Piece along with some of their very large Star Wars figures and more. It was great to see some of these in person before they hit shelves, especially Izanagi-no-Okami who I have been really looking forward to! Check them all out in the gallery.

  • Tamashii Nation, the event where Bandai shows off just how many figures they can make in a year, was held earlier this week. We brought you coverage of several pieces that were there: D-Arts Konohana Sakuya & Thanatos, the Chibi-Arts line, the Armor Girl Project, and Figuarts Zero from Code Geass and Macross Frontier. But of course there was more on display–a lot more! Bandai showed off goods from all the shows you would expect: One Piece, Kamen Rider, Power Rangers, Bleach, Ruroni Kenshin, Dragonball Z. But there were also some surprise additions to the Figuarts Zero line like the heroine from Rine no Lagrange and two of the girls from Senran Kagura. Check them all out in the gallery!

  • Bandai’s D-Arts line for Rockman (aka Megaman) has been doing quite well, so it’s no surprise that they are doing some new additions. Next up is Vava (known as Vile in the US), from Rockman X! He’s not the most popular character, and the last time he received a figure was in 2004, but fans should be thrilled anyway! We only have the uncolored sample now and no images of him posing, but the details look quite nice. D-Arts are generally very well-made and have good poseability, so I’m sure he’ll look awesome when completed! And hey, who doesn’t like big purple robots? [via the Rockman Blog]
