@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

It’s been a while since we featured a prize fair on the site, since they’ve been dull dull dull. Evangelion, Evangelion, and more Evangelion. But the 34th has some lovely surprises, like… a Cardcaptor Sakura prize figure! For real. Look at the header. It’s not a mirage, it’s real life, and it’s glorious.
Of course there are other figure (but who cares SAKURA), like… tons of Attack on Titan stuff! Also the usual suspects: Vocaloid, Madoka, Macross, Yuru Yuri, Evangelion (even I’m tired of it…), Bakemonogatari, To Aru, Sword Art Online, Kantai Collection, and… Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! (finally!).

Even if you haven’t watched Yuru Yuri you probably know about the running gag in which the main protagonist (who is really the dullest of the bunch) is invisible. Because, well, she’s super boring. She got an invisible Beach Queen already, and now it seems like her Nendoroid rendition is getting the ghostly treatment!
This is actually kind of a neat idea, as long as she comes with more than the parts we see here! We only have one shot of her but I assume (read:pray) that there is more. She’s an exclusive but thankfully not of the frighteningly expensive kind: you can snag the bundle of her and the Yuru Yuri CD at AmiAmi for ¥6,825. She’s coming out in June, which gives you a while to save up!

December was (obviously) the last month of 2012, and boy was it a doozy. Even with the massive amount of delays that came late in the year it was just totally jam-packed with releases. In fact, this might actually be our biggest month of orders… ever. Well, maybe excluding July of 2010, where we had an entire wall of loot from SDCC. But in terms of imports, yeah, it’s a bit overwhelming! So hit the jump to check out all the goodies.

[Editor's Note: You may have noticed that the PVC Pre-Order Roundup went missing for a few weeks. Due to medical reasons and the bustle of the holiday season we were unable to put in the large amount of time this feature takes. After all, it's just two of us! But now we're back for the last roundup for 2012.]
This was an absolutely spectacular week for figures. While we were all being generally lazy, opening presents and cooking elaborate dinners Japan was saving up the best pre-orders of 2012 for last. I mean, Mistral and Insane Black Rock Shooter in the same week?! Not to mention the gorgeous Cryska, along with many other pretty ladies. Hit the jump to check them all out!

Welcome to the last batch of Hobby Japan scans for 2012! That’s right, the year really is drawing to a close. Which means thinking of a list of our favorite figures, working on golden butt and boobie awards, and oh yeah.. scans! We already saw the announcement of Irma but of course that’s not all (though honestly there’s not as much new as usual this time around). We’ve got lots and lots of swimsuit girls, and a few gems thrown in. We will be sure to update if any more go up, but for right now this is all there is!
[UPDATE] Updated with figmas, a Nendoroid, FREEing, Aquamarine, Gift, and more!

When we first saw this sculpt, I found it very ho-hum. I mean we have a ton of Akaris and a ton of swimsuit figures, she just didn’t seem very special. Well she’s not exactly the best swimsuit figure ever, but boy is she cute painted! Her hair and face in particular have fantastic shading and coloring, plus the pose and inner tube are too cute to resist.
She’ll retail for a reasonable ¥6800, especially given that she is 1/7 scale. AlphaMax, you keep getting me with your adorable swimsuit girls! Akari comes out in June, so you have a long time to save up. They’ve also announce a Chinatsu as well to go along with her which I am very much looking forward to.

Welcome to another week of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. We’ve got a little bit of all of them this time around: some really great new sculpts & re-releases, some dreadful decision-making on the part of one figure company, and one downright horrifyingly ugly figure. Oh, and that soul-searing Miku Nendoroid, who could fall into any of the three categories depending on your preference. We’ve also got a massive slew of figures from MegaHouse, a double dose of Kiririn, and some NSFW ladies, so check them all out after the jump!

Is it just me, or do prize fairs happen pretty much nonstop? The 29th was only a short while ago, and the 30th is already here! I have to admit, this is probably the most exciting prize fair in a while. It’s jam-packed with awesome, the star of the show being a set of Persona 4 Arena prize figures from Taito based on their game art. It includes pretty much everyone but Rise (sigh), including, yes, Kanji and Naoto! Plus, the poses are AMAZING! Seriously, look at that Yukiko.
We also have a surprising and sfw figure of Tamaki. While she’s popular in the scaled world I think this is actually her first prize figure! Then we’ve got all the regulars: Code Geass, OreImo, Nanoha, K-On!, Evangelion, One Piece, Another, Bakemonogatari, and more. We also have some newcomers like Photokanon, Senran Kagura, Medaka Box, and more, so check them all out in the gallery!

Akari Akaza from Yuru Yuri sure does seem to be getting a lot of attention, despite the fact that she’s rather a joke in the actual anime. Everyone else is more interesting than her, but apparently the title of ‘heroine’ no matter how tongue-in-cheek is what makers care about more. We just saw Alter’s school uniform version of her, and now it’s AlphaMax’s turn!
At this point, I have so many swimsuit figures that it takes a lot to really catch my attention. Akari here, well.. she’s very simple. A nice sculpt, but a little too simple, especially at a larger 1/7 scale. Well, hopefully fans like her!

It’s been a while since she was first announced, but Alter’ Akari Akaza is finally painted! I wasn’t that impressed with the original sculpt, especially when compared to Mirakurun, but she does look rather cute painted. Not, you know, spectacular: this is definitely one of Alter’s simpler figures, but she does have a certain charm.
