It was announced earlier in the year that Phoenix Wright is getting his own figma. Today, it received a release window, and we also have a proper look at the design.

You’ll be able to get your hands on the Phoenix Wright figma in May. Pre-orders are now open at Play-Asia, AmiAmi, and Good Smile. Pricing is set at around $65.

Here’s a closer look at the Phoenix Wright figma:

At Wonder Festival this past summer, we heard about a new Samus figma from Good Smile and Max Factory. It’s based on the character’s appearance in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.

When news about the figure initially surfaced, we only had a generic stock image to go off. Now, however, we have a look at the actual design. That’s because Good Smile is now showing off the prototype at New York Comic Con. We’ve attached a photo from Good Smile above.

The Fire Emblem Fates Camilla figure is something that’s been shown off before, but only as a prototype and without color. At New York Comic Con this weekend, she’s fully on display.

Here’s a closer look:

As a bit of interesting trivia, did you know that Intelligent Systems is directly responsible for the Camilla figure?

Retailers are now starting to take pre-orders for the new Meta Knight Nendoroid. You can reserve it on Play-Asia here or Good Smile here.

On Play-Asia, there’s a pre-order deadline of September 18. You’ll need to reserve it by July 21 on Good Smile.

From the popular ‘Kirby’ game series comes a Nendoroid of Meta Knight! Just like the previously released Nendoroid Kirby, Meta Knight makes use of magnets for posing, making his movements smooth and easy to place in all sorts of different positions!

He also comes with a selection of optional parts including his sword together with large effect parts to display him slashing with the sword. You can also display him wearing his cape as well as transformed into his flying version with interchangeable wing parts! He even comes with parts that allow you to change the direction he is looking allowing for all sorts of awesome Meta Knight poses!

The Meta Knight Nendoroid will ship in March.

Update: Can now be pre-ordered at Play-Asia here.


Elise from Fire Emblem Fates will be receiving her own Nendoroid next year. Pre-orders are now starting to open for the figure, including AmiAmi and Good Smile Company. There’s nothing on Play-Asia yet, but we’ll let you know if that changes.

Last month, it was revealed that Medicom will be bringing out a new Link figure based on his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The 1/6 scale piece is part of the Real Action Heroes series.

We now have some actual photos of the figure from Dengeki Hobby. See some photos below.

The new Link figure features detailed accessories (a bow, quiver full of regular arrows, one of the special arrows shown in first trailer, a sword, shield, a hooded cloak, and the Sheikah Slate) and interchangeable hands and heads that can be used to customize his appearance. Additionally, two heads can be switched out so that Link’s appearance changes to a shout. While the figure itself (the head in particular) is made of PVC, though the clothes are made from cloth.

It’s not yet known when the figure will be available. Expect it to cost 30,240 yen (roughly $285 USD) upon release.
