Morgiana Archive

  • What is up with magazine scans recently? Last month they were just awfully uploaded, and this time around they are so late the exclusives revealed are already up for order. Also… they’re pretty awful. There’s barely anything here worth checking out. Are you sold on this post yet?! Well, there are some goodies–MegaHouse’s Elf and Amazon from Dragon’s Crown are painted, and they announced a Sorceress! Their Morgiana is painted as well. There’s also a brand new Range Murata figure from Alter! Of course there’s more. A giant Siggy from Queen’s Blade, a less giant (but no less tacky) Tomoe, Penguin Parade’s awkward version of Senhime from Hyakka Ryouran, and New Line’s surprisingly nice Naoe. MegaHouse is now pumping out yet another version of their Miki, this time with… a cowboy hat! Also there are Nendoroids we’ve already seen. Hooray!

  • Wait just one minute. This is Animate GIRLS Festival. Emphasis on the GIRLS, in case you didn’t get it the first time. A girl event for girl-catered figures only. Which means…. boy figures! No girls allowed! So what is a girl figure doing here?! Wow MegaHouse, get your shit together. You’re making it really easy to regress to elementary school. Anyway, we’ve seen this figure sculpted already, in magazine scans, but now we’re getting a better look and I’m totally in love. She’s so pretty! It’s great to get a harem-outfit style figure without the main thrust of the design being on “ooh, look how sexy she is! Wow so sexy, much boobs!” Based on the sculpt and her proportions, I am definitely picking up Morgiana–unless they really mess up the paint, or make her an exclusive… [via whitenoize’s Twitter]

  • Whoo, scans. Pardon my lack of enthusiasm, but the week leading up to Wonder Festival always has me dreading scans. It means extra features (garage kit roundup and wishlist) on top of, well, the event coverage and we have three reviews to work on this week! So when I remembered scans were tonight I nearly cried. For real, ask Stephen. So, let’s just dive right in. Wow, such figures! So PVC! Wowwwww! Maybe I’ll just do every post in Shibe…

  • To wrap up our Tamashii Nations coverage, we’ve got the scaled side of things! Bandai really focuses more on action figures, but they do put out a few cheaper, smaller-scale pre-painted figures in their Figuarts ZERO line. We’ve got all the teased Magi – Labyrinth of Magi Figuarts (and more!): Aladdin, Sinbad, Alibaba Saluja, Judai, and Morgiana. There’s also a Half-Age Character line in the shot you can see! There’s a few other assorted figures, many of which we saw at Dengeki’s 20th like the Senran Kagura girls. However, we have a new addition too: the lovely Yumi from Shinovi Versus! Last, we’ve got a red recolor of their adorable Ranka Lee to go with that blue Sheryl. [via Charanet’s Facebook]
