Nendoroid Mako Mankanshoku

| Good Smile Company, Nendoroid

When my favorite characters become Nendoroids, there is something that makes me so very excited! Follow me on twitter @gsc_mamitan! Adorable Mako, sweet sweet Mako! The poor zero star student from Honnōji Gakuen and Ryuko’s best friend! Mako is one of those incredible Nendoroids that is filled with so much emotion and so much character! Of course all our Nendoroids are amazing but when our team made the faces for Mako it was incredible! Mako get’s so excited but then also can fall asleep anywhere! The pillow is from a REALLY old Nendoroid, Akihime Sumomo from the game Nanatsuhiro Drops. It was originally bundled with the game and one of my prized possessions! Mako even comes with an extended pole for [...] Read More »

Beast Astray Art Exhibit

| Event

Not a figure post but something cool going on in LA right now! Last night was the opening of Beast Astray, an art exhibit created with artwork insirted by the upcoming motion picture MALL by Joe Hahn. Check out the trailer below! With so much artwork inspired by the film by talented artists like James Jean, Komatsu Miwa, Mechikuro, Joe Hahn and many more this was a pleasure to see all this fantastic art under one roof! While the venue inside was packed with all sorts of celebrities and artists alike the crowds outside were intense as well. I decided to blank out people’s faces but then I realized after you can’t see the long lines that went down the [...] Read More »

Kaname Madoka ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~

| Good Smile Company, Scaled Figure

There are some figures that need no introduction, this is one of them. Madoka is one of those characters that many can’t help but love. We’re all Homura’s deep down inside with a love of Madoka. Of course it’s easy when Madoka is standing before you looking so amazing as she does here. Her face, those eyes. They pierce right into your soul, letting you know her true wish isn’t just to be a magical girl but so much more. As usual our sculptors have gone above and beyond to bring you Madoka is a truer form, jumping up, ready to attack, yet with some hesitation in her movements. The truthfulness this figure has is something that is rare among [...] Read More »

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Halloween Ver.

| Event, Good Smile Company, Nendoroid

Now here is a Nendoroid that I am beyond excited for! I heard about the planning for her a while ago and we are really excited to bring her to you directly this October at Miku Expo and NYCC! When the package came in the mail of the Nendoroid Halloween Miku I was so excited to get photos of her out for you guys! I tried a few different styles of photos but it seems I still need some work on my technique. So sadly, this cool candlelit photo is the only one from this set that made it through. I must have freaked out my neighbors a bit to have them walk into a scene of me laying on [...] Read More »


figma Ryuko Matoi

| Figma, Max Factory

I promised you we’d take a look at figma Ryuko Matoi over on twitter @gsc_mamitan so for a special Saturday blog, here is figma Ryuko! I need to give figma much more love here so expect some more awesome figma coming in the future! One thing I truly love about the figma line is not only it’s poseability, but it’s versatility when it comes to posing! The joints are designed to give you a wide range of motion, but without taking away the human life movements that humans can replicate. Here is Ryuko doing the “Matrix dodge” as my friends call it! Plus the with the inclusion of the figma base pretty much any pose ais possible! One thing my friend [...] Read More »


Asuna -Knights of the Blood Ver.-

| Good Smile Company, Scaled Figure

It’s already friday! I’m looking forward to this weekend and catching up on some anime! I’m a bit behind on this current season but I plan on catching up on a particular second season of Sword Art Online! Today I wanted to take a look at my favorite character from SAO, Asuna and her Knights of the Blood uniform from the first season! Asuna is such an amazing character, she’s strong, self reliant and independent. Of course she also is the fastest with a sword in the game so she rises up the ranks really quickly! This action pose of Asuna ready to strike really reflects well on her character. The folds of her skirt, how it flows in the [...] Read More »


Phat Company Yoshino

| Phat Company, Scaled Figure

Can it really be considered a throwback thursday if she came out in January….? YEAH, I’ll allow it! Going through all the figures at the office there are some older ones I’ve never gotten the chance to show you! Of course I also want to go back and show some WAY older figures! Maybe next week? I actually have in my own personal collection some VERY old GSC and Max Factory figures so I think it’ll be fun to not only show off how great they still look compared to today’s figures. But also to show off how far we’ve come in the years since we started as Good Smile Company! Of course today’s figure is from Phat Company! We [...] Read More »
