Video: Manga Haul | March 2018 | BOX SETS!

A new post you, by Ferret no less? Jeez I thought that guy was dead.

Alas I’m not dead at all! I’ve just let life get in the way of many of my favorite internet past times. However I’m here today to just give you a taste of what I’ve been up to lately. I go over a mix of new and old releases as well as a pretty crazy deal I found for all 3 One Piece box sets!

Wonder Festival 2018 (Winter) Figurine Compilation

Wonder Festival 2018 (Winter) has begun!

For those unfamiliar with Wonder Festival, it’s the world’s biggest figurine festival and it takes place twice a year in both the summer and the winter. Many companies come together to show off and sell their products at booths across the venue.

I’ve compiled a big post with a ton of figurine pictures from the event. You’ll see announcement posters, unpainted prototypes, and some finished products.

Check them out after the break! Warning: Some of these figurines are a bit saucy. [Note: More pictures will be added throughout the night.]

Join me below the break to check it out!
