    GSC Unveils Overwatch Nendoroids Hanzo & Genji

    I was a bit surprised that Good Smile Company did not have any Overwatch reveals at New York Comic Con. I mean, we got 2 last year, and the US seems to be the primary market for this line. Seems like they were holding out for a big double reveal! Hot on the heels of figma Genji we are getting a Nendoroid of everyone’s favorite human/cyborg duo, Genji and Hanzo.

    Check Out The Art For Snow Miku 2018

    I have to say, I was not 100% sold on the reveal of Snow Miku 2018. It looked a little bland, and not quite as creative as some of the past designs. We’re finally getting a full art reveal for her and I must say, I’ve completely changed my tune! Maybe it’s the lovely atmosphere of this piece but I am smitten.

    Miku Hatsune has been the ruler of the figure world since her inception 10 years ago. I mean, it’s hard to think of a character who has lasted so long but also has a wide variety of figures and styles (Saber, perhaps… but some of her most popular forms are technically different characters). Of course Good Smile Company is going all-out with both a scaled figure and a Nendoroid.

    More Himouto! Umaru-chan Nendoroids Are In The Works

    For one brief, shining moment Umaru-chan was all the rage in the figure world. Nendoroid, trading figures, and merchandise out the wazoo. She was the It Girl for roughly 4 months, and now we see absolutely nothing from the show. But a second season is starting soon, which means it’s time for this short-lived hype train to get back on the tracks.

    Good Smile Company showed off an unpainted Nendoroid of Nana Ebina the other day, and she looks so cute! She has had a whopping 1 figure before this, and it was a little trading one, so this is a great day to be a Nana fan.
