News: Marvel Legends 2013 Wave 1 is ready for preorder!

Finally the 1st wave of Marvel Legend 2013 is up for preorder at several online sites. And according to source, there have been several adjustments to the characters in this wave. It was initially revealed that a white costumed Iron Fist is one of the character in this wave, I even posted it here at my blog! But it was later taken out recently. Anyway let us look at the line up of this wave below:

Now with this release, all new Marvel Legends have a Captain America or a character that dressed like Captain America... Is that a new trend in Marvel Universe? But I am glad that Archangel is still part of this wave, hope it comes out great. According to source, this  Marvel Legends 2013 Wave 1 should be out by Jan 2013, as mentioned it is currently available for PO at several online sites. So have you pre-ordered yours?

News: Some Figurine displays at the Megahobby Expo 2012 Autumn

At the recent Megahobby Expo 2012 Autumn, there were various figures being displayed. I have been surfing through and thinking posting some that I am interested in:

From Alter, they have a display of Saber in a dress which looks like the Typemoon's 10th anniversary Saber produced by Banpresto (the figure we bought at the AFA 2012, click here to check it out!). And of course Waver Velet from Fate/ Zero since I am fan of Fate/ Zero.

Kotobukiya showed the Asuna PVC, which looks really nice. The PVC Elmina from Shining look pretty good and the Saber from their new Cupoche lines.

Next on MegaHouse, there were also several nice figurines. First of all the series 2 of Petit Chara Land series for Naruto, the PVC of Lancer and Archer from Fate/Zero, the Blue exorcist and Gundam Seed Characters. Wow, I wonder how many figures I can afford to get...

News: Mika Tan previewed Nendoroid Fate Testarossa (Blaze Form Edition)

On Mika Tan's blog, she previewed the Nendoroid Fate Testarossa (Blaze Form Edition). I have no idea why Goodsmile Company only revealed this nendoroid now as what Mika Tan had mentioned, a teaser was actually posted on her blog just before the previous Wonder Fest 2012. This also meant that I have guessed correctly that the Nendoroid teased in the image is most likely Fate Testarossa (click here to read!). Now after all the talking, let us see the true face of the Nendoroid Fate Testarossa - Blaze Form Edition!

Like her counterpart Nendoroid Nanoha Takamachi (Exelion Mode Edition), this Nendoroid Fate Testarossa is also from the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 2nd A's'. According to source, this Fate Testarossa should be available for order on 29th Nov 2012!

News: Some new figurines news from Hobby Japan 2013年1月號

From the latest copy of Hobby Japan 2012 scans, we are able to view the previous released news of Lancer from Fate/ Zero, produced by Megahouse. Now in its color version. The picture of prototype Fate/ Zero Archer is also looking awesome!

For female figures MegaHouse has the Ichiko Sakura from Binbougami ga! and Chie Satonaka from Persona.

Wave is having a prototype Asuna picture, and Kirito by figma is looking good too. Looks like Sword Art Online is going to have more and more figures coming out! And after making Naruto, Plex will be launching Sakura in the Door Painting Collection Figure (D.P.C.F) series.

News: 1/6 Chinese Hero Series - ZhaoYun of Three Kingdoms (三國-趙雲) by SOUL魂作

Saw this post by onesixthrepublic on a Chinese Warrior in the novel/ history of the Three Kingdom. The novel of Three Kingdom is very well-liked by most Chinese in Singapore, Malaysia and China. Even if they do not read, they may have watched the TV series or the movie. During 2008 to 2009, the movie "Red Cliff" which was directed by John Woo even brought the "Three Kingdom" to higher height when it was released out of Asian. And thanks to the PS game Dynasty Warrior, a lot of youngster also came to know about the existence of characters like Zhao Yun and Lu bu... Back to the figure, it was noted that the company making this figure, SOUL (魂作) is intending to launch the five tiger warriors (五虎将) with Zhao Yun as the first warrior. Now let us look at some of the pictures taken during the production, blueprints and the prototypes.

Although the figure of Zhao Yun is still not yet officially announced, but SOUL had went ahead to tease on the next weapon, bow & arrows which belongs to Huang Zhong (黄忠)... Currently no news on when will the figure be release. But I foresee the price will not be cheap.
