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 »


GSC and Ultra Tokyo Connection at Sakura Con 2014

| Event, Freeing, Gift, Good Smile Company, Mamitan blog, Max Factory, Phat Company

Sakura Con was last month, we had a blast going and want to thank everyone who came and stopped by the booth to say hi! This was our first event with Ultra Tokyo Connection, they are our new distribution company for North America and will be doing their absolute best to bring you all our amazing products! Our booth design is new too! Instead of posters we made these awesome banners! Maybe in future events we’ll give some away! Crunchyroll was really awesome and let us switch spaces too since the event hall had a giant pillar in front of our displays. But no worries, fans found the Crunchyroll booth and we were happy to direct them the right way. [...] Read More »


Retro Wednesday – Max Factory Aoba

| Max Factory

It’s been a while since my last retro Wednesday post, and while Aoba isn’t that old since he was released back in April of last year I thought I’d take a closer look at a figure that I constantly get requests for a re-release! As a figure collector I’m sure we all have our regrets, I know I do. My regrets are from when I miss pre-ordering a figure and then wanting it so badly later! I originally didn’t order Aoba either, I didn’t know much about Dramatical Murder so I didn’t jump to order him. But we have one at the office and I just keep staring at him longingly each time i see him! He’s just so handsome! [...] Read More »

This year’s first wonfes came by and has been simply fantastic! So many truly amazing figure announcements I was fangirling at our entire booth!

First up, Nendoroid Ryuko and Mako from Kill la Kill! I am positively obsessed with this series! If you have not had a chance to watch it I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU DO SO!   Also from Kill la Kill is Max Factory’s figma of Matoi Ryuko! During wonfes, multiple times I died from sheer excitement!

figma Snow Miku

| Figma, Mamitan blog, Max Factory

Today in my adventures in Japan I visited the Sensō-ji temple in Asakusa. Went to visit to wish for a happy future and a good trip here in Japan. So far it’s been amazing! I’ve had great food with great friends, and I love spending time with my Japanese Co-workers! I love this time I get to come to Japan and visit with the people who work so hard to make all these amazing figures come to life! But today I’m not here to talk about Japan, I’m here to talk about figma Snow Miku! Boy it’s been cold here in Japan! I’m told tomorrow it will snow! I’m actually very nervous about snow, being from Southern California I don’t [...] Read More »
