Another month, another batch of magazine scans! Is it just me, or have scans kind of tapered off in intensity? I feel like several companies have kind of “dropped out” of the Hobby Japan scans, namely Good Smile Company & co. We really don’t get many big reveals from them anymore! In fact, the scans pretty much seem to be “check out what cool things MegaHouse has, with some stuff from Alter and Kotobukiya on the side. Oh, and maybe Orchid Seed will pop up too!”
Decline of the scans or not, we do have a pretty action-packed month for you! Well, if you’re a MegaTen fan at least. Because there are three new MegaTen girls! And only one of them is from Persona, believe it or not! So hit the jump and let’s get started.

Magazine scans always take me by surprise. Well, most of the time anyway. It’s funny, because I know they are the same night every month yet somehow I forget! So I’m just sitting around, minding my own business and indulging in sappy tv shows when BAM suddenly scans!
This month we’ve got a whole lot from MegaHouse, including a brand new boy! To be honest it’s not the most action-packed month but of course there are lots of goodies to be had. Check them all out after the jump!

I have such a love-hate relatipnship with magazine scans. On one hand, it’s so much fun to see all the new goodies! On the other, it’s 3 in the morning and I wanted to catch up on Supernatural but instead I’m cropping photos. Ah, what a hard life us toy bloggers lead! Truly, we suffer for our art.
Let’s face it magazine scans the month of a Wonder Festival will be the dullest of the year. Half the stuff we’ve already seen, and there are very few new reveals. However, that doesn’t mean there is nothing at all! Some companies, like Alter, apparently think it’s fun to save their most interesting sculpt for scans instead of the event, and we’ve got double Nyaruko along with a lot more goodies!

Welcome to another month of scans! We’ve got tons of awesome this time, including FIVE boys! No joke, five of ‘em. Oh, and some ladies as well of course. Lolis, busty demons, kick-ass steak eaters, and graceful penguin commanders. And, of course, the necessary NSFW girls and bikini babes. Check them all out after the jump!

Hobby Japan’s newest collaboration, the Seven Deadly Sins line, has so far included Asmodeus (Lust), Leviathan (Envy), and Lucifer (Pride). While the first two were exclusives, we were lucky enough to get a standard release for Lucifer. While I ordered her right off the bat, I know many people were on the fence due to her high pricetag. Well, for those of you not sure we’re getting a closer look at her today!
We’ve got a great and in-depth gallery of this sinful beauty, and there are some great detail shots. In fact, they highlight a few things that I missed–like the fact that she has a tail! I wonder which sin will be next? It seems like Orchid Seed and Amakuni are trading off on this project, so I am guessing it’s going to be Beelzebub or Belphegor.

Welcome to a week of fabulous flying ladies! We’ve got ladies with mechanical wings, butterfly wings, even feathered wings… on their waist! In fact, we’ve also got not one but two sky-high Nendoroids. Okay, so one rides a carrot and the other has weird feet blade-wings, but there’s still an unusually high number of airborne figures this time around. Of course we’ve got some earthbound ladies as well (and one small guy). Ladies with guns, small ladies with guns, flying ladies with guns… really, it’s a week of flying ladies with guns all around (and some with swords and laces!), many of whom popped up in magazine scans. So hit the jump and check them out!

When the Seven Sins line was first announced, I guessed that like the Hyakka Ryouran girls there would be a mix of standard releases and exclusives. Well, so far Seven Sins has been all exclusives: the first two, Asmodeus and Leviathan, were limited to Hobby Japan. However Lucifer, the third girl in the series and the 2nd done by Orchid Seed, will not be exclusive! In fact, she’ll be a regular old release… though given that this is Orchid, I don’t expect her to hang out in stores for months upon months.
This is one of my favorite of the seven designs along with Satan, and I think Orchid has really done her justice. The sculpt is amazing, and I love their use of clear PVC. And unlike when we first saw her, the base has been fully painted and given a marble effect. Plus she has a psycho crazy face! She’ll retail for ¥9,800 with a release way off in June, so you’ve got some time to save up. Like the other girls, she’s cast-off, though she seems to be more clothed than the previous releases.
note: Lucifer’s stock seems to be limited and she has already sold out at some places, so don’t sit on this pre-order!

Another month, another batch of magazine scans! They’re definitely gearing up for October, since these scans are full of some lovely treats: new Hyakka figures from Alter, the revival of the Shining Hearts swimsuit line, the goofiest Nendoroid, a totally gorgeous AlphaMax girl. But of course there are many tricks to be found: mainly, ridiculous pricing. I mean, beyond Goddess Madoka ridiculous… companies, what is going on?! But good news outweighs the bad, so hit the jump and let’s get started!

The Seven Deadly Sins line has been chugging along at about a figure every 2 months. Asmodeus was the first finished, and it was actually tonight that the second, Leviathan, opened up orders! Lucifer was sculpted in magazine scans only 2 days ago, but I didn’t expect to see her finished for a while now. Welp, here she is, fully painted and shaded and all that jazz. And of course she looks amazing! I mean, this is Orchid Seed we’re talking about. I adore the clear parts of her skirt and the shading on her “wings,” just lovely! We only have this blurry shot to go off of but I think she’s my favorite so far. Then again, she does have my favorite of the seven designs so I am biased! Let’s hope she is released in April or May, and not in March with Leviathan. Knowing how this line has been going so far though I have a terrible fear that she will be February, right smack dab between them!
[UPDATE] We now have a clearer shot of Lucifer in the gallery thanks to beyyang128. Also, a shot of Asmodeus & Lucifer together–they look AMAZING!

I’ve been quite excited about the Hobby Japan x Orchid Seed Seven Deadly Sins collaboration. Their first release, Asmodeus, was totally fantastic. But we found out in this months’ magazine scans that Leviathan, the demon prince of Envy, would be moved from Orchid Seed to Amakuni, HJ’s own figure producing branch. The sculpt is still fantastic (which makes sense, given that it’s Sakurazensen), though I think her thighs were thinned down too much from the illustration.
The paint is my real issue–I love the design, pose, and sculpt, but the paint is really lacking shading and looks flat. Also, the purple looks so dull in these shots! I do have faith that she will come out well, though we will have to wait and see how she looks with Asmodeus. As of right now, Amakuni will also be doing Belphegor and Beelzebub as well. Leviathan will retail for ¥8,800 with a special edition for ¥9,800 with a special mat featuring a very risque (and brunette?) Leviathan. Speaking of risque… what is up with that alternate pose?! I know it’s supposed to be sexy, but it’s just making me think of a rather infamous internet image. Leviathan will be released in March, and we will post pre-order links as they go up.
