I mentioned this deal on Twitter earlier in the week (you’re following us there, right?) when it was still on back-order, but Amazon has Theatrhythm Final Fantasy back in its warehouses for you to buy. It’s worth picking up as something to play during the upcoming holiday breaks — even if there’s a sequel (not announced for the West yet) coming up.
Oh, and these figures are presumably something coming out one day? The photos are from Square Enix’s Hidemi Matsuzuka.
Dannnnggggg. That’s a lot classier than the Tharja figure, for sure.
Link, Luigi Nendoroid figures coming
Artwork for these two new figures appeared at Japan’s Wonder Festival Summer (via @charmwitch). I’m going to assume these are coming this year, what with the Year of Luigi and all.

Posted by Chicago Toy Collector, these figures were fashioned out of vintage Kenner Star Wars figures — Mega Man was Luke Skywalker before his robot conversion, while Dr. Light was Obi-Wan Kenobi in a previous life.
Super cute Monster Hunter 4 figures
Fans in Japan will be able to win these Banpresto-made figures by picking up tickets at their local 7-11 next March. The adorable Felyne Tank might be the coolest toy vehicle since the TMNT Pizza Launcher — though it doesn’t quite match that toy’s brilliance because it fails to shoot pizzas.
Bandai’s D-Arts Charizard is the best lizard since the lizard. Bandai’s D-Arts figure of the Pokemon looks absolutely bananas, with multiple points of tail and neck articulation, a flame accessory, and a moving mouth for terrifying expressions.
This Charizard figure ships in April for ¥3,990 ($46). If Bandai decides to keep going with Pokemon figures, this collection is going to get very expensive.
Senran Kagura’s Asuka in figure form. Before Code of Princess, Senran Kagura was the embarrassing 3DS action game. I had no idea it sold well enough to support spinoff toys, but here it is, due to ship in June for 4,729 yen ($57). Weird.
It’s sorta tasteful, I guess, at least relative to everything else I’ve ever seen of this game. Which just means I’m only a little ashamed to have seen it.

Kirby Wii Mascot Figures. Yes, more Nintendo figure news. While I may not have been the biggest fan of Return to Dreamland, there’s no denying that it’s got some cuuuute Kirbies in it, and I find the prospect of having a 50mm version of one on my desk pretty appealing.
These will be out next month in Japan, and as usual, I’m sure an importer will pick them up soon. Whip Kirby! Uh, that was an exclamation of excitement about the Kirby with the whip ability. Not a command.

Zelda Figure Collection toys. Yes, more Nintendo figure news! This set includes versions of Link and Zelda from Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time, and Phantom Hourglass.— which reminds me that I have no toys depicting Wind Waker-style Link, the only Zelda toy I’d ever need.
NCSX just opened pre-orders for complete sets, at $28.90. They’ll ship in April.

Samus Aran figures by Good Smile Company shown at Comiket 81, based on Metroid: Other M. I don’t really need a Zero Suit Samus in my house, but that Varia Suit Samus is pretty great. And you don’t have to tell people it’s from Metroid: Other M if you don’t want to.
(Note: I don’t want to talk about Metroid: Other M.)

Crafted by Camille Young, the 4”, hand-painted figure features a laser cut/etched cape, four poseable joints, and a wind-up key. Fangamer is only selling 150 of these, each numbered and signed. And if a star being ever stops by your home, he’ll probably possess your doll to recover pieces of Star Road scattered around the world.

Kotobukiya’s amazing Mega Man model kit, which I have yet to shut up about, will receive an official American release through Capcom’s online store this July. Pre-orders are available now for $29.95. Capcom is also planning to stock the Roll and Proto Man figures at the same time, for the same price!
Each one is made up of “approximately 200 pieces,” which is absolutely terrifying.
