First 4 Figures is kicking off its Castlevania line with a brand new Alucard statue. Pre-orders are open on the company’s website here.

Fans can choose between regular, exclusive, and “twilight” editions of the statue. You can also order a combo that includes both the exclusive and twilight versions. These are essentially the same aside from the color of Alucard’s cape.

Retailers are starting to open pre-orders for the new Guardian Nendoroid from Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Currently, you can reserve it on Play-Asia here, Good Smile here, or AmiAmi here.

As for Lillie, we don’t have much to go on at the moment. The figure itself hasn’t really been shown yet aside from the art below. It will be available sometime in 2018.
