MegaHouse’s New G.E.M. figure Hitsugaya Toushiro

433Previously mentioned in my Chara Hobby 2009 post, MegaHouse will be releasing a new figure as part of their G.E.M. line, Hitsugaya Toushiro from Bleach.  Moeyo has updated with a bit more coverage from the event and has posted a flyer that depicts MegaHouse’s Hitsugaya in full color and wow, he looks stunning!

The figure is scheduled to be released this December 2009 retailing at 6,930yen inclusive of tax. He’ll be measuring 18.5cm tall.

I hope some official images will come out soon so I can get a closer look at it. Aaaaaah! I’m very tempted to pre-order him whenever pre-orders go up…


Chara Hobby 2009

img_1789796_55860859_20The Chara Hobby 2009 event opened its doors Saturday in Japan and has already come to an end. The event took place in Makuhari Messe and ran throughout the weekend, August 29-30. I’ve been stalking my usual sources for the event since the event started and quite honestly nothing really caught my interest this time around. Yeah, there were a few eye catching figures and very gorgeous ones but not something to make me jizz my pantsu over and make it on my GET list–well maybe a figure or two but that’s it, orz. I also wanted to wait for the second day of the event to post about it in one go in case some new stuff popped up. Very image heavy after the jump.

Odaiba Gundam Wedding

Finally, the Gundam wedding took place. The Wedding Planning company, T&G (Take & Give) had a special wedding ceremony planned for one lucky couple this past Tuesday 25th August at 8:45pm. The couple were picked from the many 548 entries back in July.

Here’s a subtitled video (ganked via JapanProbe) of the special wedding ceremony that was held at the base of the 1/1 Gundam RX-78. Naturally, there was cosplay. The groom, dressed as Amuro Ray escorted his normally-dressed bride down the Gundam alter. The couple had been married, but had not held a formal wedding ceremony until now. Now how amazing is that? Hands down, best wedding ever. What an amazing way to kick off your marriage.

Gundam Big Expo 2009

g049As part of Gundam 30th anniversary celebration, the 3 day Gundam Big Expo 2009 is currently being held this weekend August 21-23 at Tokyo Big Sight in Odaiba, Tokyo.

Digged around through my usual otaku blog sources for coverage on the Gundam Big Expo. Being the big gundam whore that I am, you can imagine how excited I got with all the neat gunpla that was shown.

However, this sexy beast of a plastic got me hella ecstatic like you wouldn’t believe, the 1/35 scale Gundam Fix Figuration RX-78-2 Ver.Ka. It was the main talk of the event amongst the attendees. It’s going to be 500mm (50cm tall)–that’s almost 2 FEET TALL. It will come with a display base with lighting gimmick and metal plate with a unique serial number. No price as of yet but I imagine it’ll cost an arm and a leg and a few organs (I’m thinking a few hundreds here and there.). Release date is March 2010. Some nice close-up shots at Akiba Hobby.

I’m not one to dish out that much money for something like this, but that’s one sexy piece of plastic that’s tempting me to save up and buy it. Other than that, the other thing that caught my eye was the Perfect Grade 00-Raiser (more PG 00-Raiser pics here). Oh Gundam, look what you do to me!

Nendoroid Hirasawa Yui Up For Pre-order!

nendo-hirasawayui1Nendoroid Hirasawa Yui from K-ON! by Good Smile Company will be available this coming November 2009 for 3,500yen retail price. She comes with her guitar, amp and has three different interchangeable facial expressions. More images over at Good Smile Company. At the moment only Hobby Search has pre-orders up.

Aaaah! She’s so cute. I like her determined expression the best! Now all that’s left is Ritsu and Mugi. I’m also anxiously waiting for nendo Ciel. I wonder when GSC will officially announce him; Sebastian is lonely without his Master. (  ; A;)~


Comiket 76 Figure Coverage – Bakemonogatari Nendoroid Petit

comiket76-003As expected, Akiba Hobby is the first one to post coverage for this months COMIKET 76 event. I’m not going to make a huge post on the event since many of the interesting stuff  they’re showcasing (at least for me) was already showcased at Wonder Festival this past July. Only one thing caught my eye.

It appears Good Smile Company is still going full force with even more nendoroid releases. GSC will be releasing these cute Bakemonogatari Nendoroid Petit’s of Araragi Koyomi, Senjougahara Hitagi and Tsubasa Hanekawa! Aaaaah! Araragi looks adorable! Although the nendoroid petits are cute too (but way too small for my liking), I think it would have been best if they were regular sized nendoroids. But whatever the case, a definite DO WANT.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood episode 19

Roy Mustang, I love you.

That was the most epic episode thus far. Holy shit. Roy and Lust fight? Beautifully animated. And those abs, I want to lick ’em.

And I wasn’t planning on posting about the episode until I saw this screencap on 2chan, orz.
