An amazing new figures has just been released from Good Smile Company from series, Puella Magi Madoka. The Ultimate Madoka is a 1/8 scale figure which ships in a huge box.

Her long flowing hair, the deep space confined within her dress, her transparent wings and even her bow that looks like a budding flower – every part of Ultimate Madoka has been carefully sculpted to faithfully reproduce the original.The included pedestal is made to look like the magical symbols in space that formed each time she fired an arrow.

A while back, Japan’s entertainment precinct, Odaiba saw the set up of a life sized Gundam statue which had a ton of people flocking to see it, locals and tourists alike.
Needless to say like all good things, it didn’t last and was only a temporary attraction which was pulled down and carefully dismantled after a month of being on display. Well, the powers that be must have been pleased with the turnout because the Gundam model is back in Odaiba. And the even better news is that this time, he’s back for one full year!

Capcom are readying themselves for one of the biggest launches yet for the 3DS in Japan. Monster Hunter 3G comes out in Japan December 10 and Capcom have pulled out all the stops with the following bundles.
The basic pack will net you the game and a Monster Hunter themed alarm clock (¥5, 800), there’s the extended edition will features the previous pack as well as movable figure that’s posable (¥8, 800). Or you can opt for the slide pad instead which is ¥6, 640 or else you can get the pack which bundles everything mentioned for ¥9, 99o. The figure by itself will set you back ¥6, 460. The figure is a tad pricier than the game and alarm clock, so I’ve posted a gallery below of the figure so you can see what your yen is getting you 🙂
