    MegaHobby Expo Spring 2017: Amakuni

    Amakuni: purveyor of expensive shit you probably can’t afford but really want. They’re continuing that trend today with another Persona 5 announcement: Futaba Sakura! Sigh, my squid waifu in her Phantom Thief outfit is a thing of dreams. And a lot of $$

    Oh, they had other things as well! Like sculpts for Lilith Aensland, and Shinki Ixseal from Choukou Shinki Ixseal. Plus an announcement for Medusa Lancer from Fate/Grand Order, along with a few of their older sculpts.

    Get The Best Persona Waifu With Phat’s Futaba Sakura

    Persona 5 is a hard game. I mean, the battles are a ton easier than previous entries in the series, but picking who you are going to romance? It’s brutal, guys. Just brutal. They’re all such good waifus. But I picked obviously best waifu Squid Girl because she’s basically me irl. Next playthrough I’m going to date everyone and see what happens on Valentine’s Day.

    Take A Closer Look At Kotobukiya’s Persona 5 MC

    Have you been doing nothing but playing Persona 5 for the past week? Me too thanks. I mean, seriously, I’m averaging 6 hours a day. It’s not a problem though, I swear! And now that I’m finally able to meet all the characters, I am in full hype mode for the various P5 figures. Including, of course, our suave and stylish MC from Kotobukiya.

    Let’s all appreciate how beautiful this phantom thief is. Everything from the pose to the base that mirrors the game’s amazing UI is just perfection. Maybe I’m just riding the P5 high but I can’t wait for this thief to steal my heart once he’s up for order.

    Winter WonFest 2017: Garage Kits

    As collectors, our focus for Wonder Festival is obviously on the things that you can, you know, actually buy. But at the event, purchasable PVC figures are outnumbered pretty substantially by garage kits. We of course brought you our usual before-event roundup, but it’s time to take a look at all the goodies that were out and about that day!

    The quality ranges from amazing to god-awful, so we tried to bring you the cream of the crop. Though I will admit, quite a few in this gallery are just here because of how odd they are.

    Winter WonFest 2017: (NSFW) Good Smile x Persona 5

    It’s almost Persona 5 time in the US! I mean, it was supposed to be Persona 5 time several days ago… probably good that it got delayed, because lemme tell you, I would NOT be here posting if it was out. I’d be playing. No regrets.

    Feast Your Eyes Upon The Newest Persona 5 Figures
