It’s been quite a long time since I fell head over heels in love with an all-new anime series, but the one new anime that claimed my soul in 2013 turned out to be the breakout hit, Kuroko’s Basketball (Kuroko no Basket). It seems I’m not the only one who fell in love with the franchise, as MegaHouse has announced a whole line of 1/8 Kuroko’s Basketball figures beginning in 2014.
At this weekend’s MegaHobby EXPO 2013 Autumn event, they debuted the second figure in the line: Kagami Taiga!
At New York Comic Con 2013 last month, I saw what looked to be the completed, final painted prototype of the brand new Dragon Ball Z Figuarts Zero Super Saiyan Vegeta figure. I figured that Bandai was going to open pre-orders for the figure within a few weeks of the convention, but it took longer than I thought it was going to. But not that much longer! The hotly-demanded Super Saiyan Vegeta Figuarts Zero Dragonball Z figure is now up for order!
Move over, MegaHouse G.E.M.–Bandai is gunning for you! Bandai has spent the last several years content to build their Figuarts Zero empire with Figuarts Zero 1/12 scale figures, but in 2014 Bandai is poised to invade MegaHouse’s territory (which is sort of their own territory anyway) and make their move into 1/8 figures!
Bandai is expanding to 1/8 Figuarts Zero figures in 2014, and their first entry is the Sailor Moon Figuarts Zero 1/8 figure that is now up for order!
It’s been a long, hard wait for Dragon Ball Z fans, but the next Bandai S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z figure to join the lineup has finally arrived! The most recent DBZ SH Figuarts figure released was the anime repaint SH Figurarts Piccolo from San Diego Comic Con 2013, but the last truly new character released in the Dragon Ball Z line was the SH Figuarts Frieza in June 2013. But the five month wait for more “new” has ended, as the SH Figuarts Krillin figure is now in-stock and available for order in America!
