Good Smile Company has stepped up its game in recent months with excellent figure offerings but this time, it’s going for the stars with their latest announcement which should blow the minds of every single otaku out there (yes, even those who aren’t into collecting) with its sheer awesomeness and insane engineering. This 1/8 scale figure of Saber from the celebrated anime, “Fate/Zero,” depicts her riding her personal vehicle, the Saber Motored Cuirassier while holding Excalibur at her side. Continue reading

New figmas have been announced recently that should appease a lot of both these characters fans, although I’m not particularly fond of one of them for reasons which I shall torture you (translation: rant) with later. First off, the character which I really, really, reeeeeaaally admire, “Puella Magi Madoka Magica’s” Sakura Kyoko.

Anyways, this 1/7 beauty needs no further introduction as she’s been featured almost everywhere to the delight of owners and misery of those who weren’t able to get her cheap. She comes out swinging her swords in January 2012 for a relatively positive price of 9800 yen. Don’t miss this second chance at getting her!
With the new anime in the “Fate” franchise approaching, a new 15 second PV (promotional video) has been released on Japanese airwaves centering around Assassin. Check out the video after the break… Continue reading
