Saint Cloth Myth EX and Crown

As Tamashii confirmed our anxiety and fears have only begun with the direction for the Saint Cloth Myth series.


Looks like Saint Seiya will be staying for quite a while as we are taken into another round of ride (including those unwillingly) into these two new SCM lines...

Hatsune Miku and Toyota

There is no doubt that Miku Hatsune from the vocaloid series is one of the most popular characters that ever came out of Japan. After seeing the Japanese bring her to life in her very own concert she is now the endorser of the 2011 Toyota Corolla!

Watch the vid to see why it's awe~some! :D

Sanyo Saint Seiya Pachinko

Saint Seiya fans all over have been raving to the new pachinko machine revealed by Sanyo. This game machine will be covering the legendary Sanctuary arc where the Bronze Saints raced the 12 palaces to save Athena who has been shot in the heart with an arrow.

All key scenes have been enhanced and included such as Dragon Shiryu's suicide attack on Capricorn Shura, Cygnus Hyoga's battle with Aquarius Camus for ice superiority, the cries of Pegasus Seiya to wake up a brainwashed Leo Aiolia, the bloody rose of Pisces Aphrodite stabbing Andromeda Shun, and of course the cruel scene where Phoenix Ikki was shattered by Virgo Shaka.

The video leaves us fans wanting to have the entire series remade in this quality. It would be amazing to re-watch the Sanctuary Chapter with this quality as it is on par with the Hades Inferno Chapter.

Figma Miku Hatsune (Append Ver.)

Looks like we will be seeing another Miku Hatsune figure in figma form, this time it's the append version as featured in Vocaloid's additional voice set for Miku. It's amazing how popular she is as we've already had a lot of different versions of her, we already have a few just counting the nendoroids.

Figma Miku Hatsune: Append Ver. features a gradient transparent style to her hair, a number of faces including one with a serious face which is uncommon for a character such as Miku.  The downside seems to be the lack of accessories, but that new costume is quite appealing ^^. Check out her new poses below!

Black Phoenix Official Images

The Black Phoenix is definitely the best one out of the group, it also has the best price since it's not going to be a Japan exclusive like the Black Pegasus & Black Andromeda package or the Black Cygnus & Black Dragon package which are only available thru the Tamashii online shop.  The only downside to this figure is they (yes, there's quite of few of them) is they are more like cannon fodder in the first story arc -_-'.

Phoenix Ikki v1 confirmed for June 2011

Coming on June 2011 is the powerful Kamen Rider ☺ Bronze Saint, Phoenix Ikki v1. The Phoenix Saint is quite lucky compared to the rest as he's getting alternate faces all in one package and he's got a total of three - A normal Ikki face, a shouting face, and the face with visor! Unlike, the shouting faces for Pegasus Seiya v1 and Andromeda Shun v1 which is only available with the Black Pegasus and Black Andromeda Tamashii webstore exclusive package.

Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Bonds That Trancends Time Trailer

Have been seeing teasers and trailers of this movie for a few months now, hopefully the video will be available soon for all Yu-Gi-Oh fans to enjoy. In the movie, a new mysterious enemy called Paradox captures the ace card Stardust Dragon from Yusei Fudo, the main character of Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's, for his own plans. Somehow he was transported to the past and meets up with fellow protagonists of previous series namely, Judai Yuki from the GX series and THE legendary Yugi Mutou/Pharoah of the original series *cheers*.

Until we have the movie, here's a trailer which is actually a compilation of the 3 teasers that surfaced and other separate trailers.
