Kuroko’s Basketball fans are used to having to wait. There was a year between Kuroko’s Basketball Season 1 and Season 2, and the anime Kuroko’s Basketball Season 3 likely won’t air until 2015. So as popular as Kuroko no Basket is, there’s really no rush to get figures and merchandise out for the franchise. At least, that’s what MegaHouse seems to think. The first MegaHouse Kuroko’s Basketball Series figure–Kuroko Tetsuya–was released in early 2014. And now the second MegaHouse Kuroko no Basket series will be released this weekend–a limited edition repaint… also of Kuroko Tetsuya!Continue Reading→

Last week they debuted the excellent Madara Uchiha DXTra figure, but this week they’ve upped the ante ever further with the amazing Tsume Naruto Itachi Uchiha HQS (High Quality Statue) that’s now available for pre-order!Continue Reading→

Naruto collectors have really gotten the shaft in recent years when it comes to Naruto figures and high-end collectibles. But in 2014 things are really turning around for Naruto collectors, with the long-awaited S.H. Figuarts Naruto figure, as well as several MegaHouse Naruto G.E.M. figures.
