BigBadToyStore has posted two pre-orders I’ve been waiting for: Fall of Cybertron Grimlock. If this website had a slightly different tone, this is where I’d type “**** AND YES.” Finally. I haven’t even played the videogame yet (want to, though), but I know I need this toy. The vintage Grimlock remains my favorite toy of all [...]
This holiday…try not to fall into these traps… Big Box Theory – Big isn’t necessarily better. Especially with building sets, if you have a beginning builder – start small. The idea is for them to enjoy the project, not watch … Continue reading →

And now onto the final stretch with the last few galleries from Treasure Festa in Ariake 8! Time to round up the anime kits now, and it's all about Madoka Magica!
Admit it, you smiled when you saw the chibi magical girls do their own Ginyu force pose! The Homura holding her Madoka dakimakura is rather cute too!
Elsewhere, we have chibi ika musume and a rather old Macross Frontier kit which tries to recreate a scene from the second opening of the TV anime. Lan and Kyouno Madoka from Rinne no Lagrange also have a few kits on display as well as Chinatsu from Yuri Yuri and Yui from Muv-Luv: Total Eclipse, ready to join the other ladies we saw earlier!
I kinda want the Homura... How about you, readers?

Thanks to forums member PuertoRiCON just picked both up Ultra Magnus and Thundertron for $11.00 USD at a Ross store Central Florida. He also comments about seeing RID Rumble, Vehicons, Knock-outs for $7 USD. This is great news for the fans who have been hunting for these toys offline. Have you seen Transformers Prime toys at Ross?

And here we are, at the end of the line with our last gallery of misc garage kits! We have some Berserk, some Sharks, and a little WTF to finish things off!
I'm fairly certain that a few of the figures are from Touhou but since I'm not an expert, it's best that I don't play the guessing game... Is anyone able to identify some of the later figures?
I have to admit that I'm a little partial to the girl sitting on the doghouse but what about you, readers? after being bombarded with all those anime kits earlier, is there anything here which interests you?
That's it for our Treasure Festa coverage. I hope you had fun looking at all the works which were present on the dealer floor and got you wishing for a few! The next big event will be the winter Wonder Festival in 2013 and you can bet that we will be covering that for you all as well.
But for now, this is the end of our coverage of Treasure Festa in Ariake 8 (or is it?)

You may have a basic understanding of Karma, but with ‘Cosmic Karma’ you can deepen your understanding and strive to achieve enlightenment… If that doesn’t sound entertaining enough, take into account the fact that it’s a wicked board game that also happens to be a blast to play. Contents A lovely and artistic game board, [...]
Have you ever seen a thumbnail of a figure and been rather attracted to it, only to view the full thing and immediately double take? If not, say hello to Mouse Unit's Tonari no ie no Annette-san, based off art by Aoi Nagisa. More than most figures, when I saw this character's facial expressions and gorgeous hair, I thought she had to be a fantastic design.
Unfortunately, as a click through to the gallery will reveal, an adorable face is hiding a body straight out of the sleaziest hentai. To say Annette-san's features are...exaggerated would be putting it nicely. I'll come right out and say I don't quite get the appeal of figures like this at all. I mean, it must be there, as I've personally known people who purchased them, but all the same.
Again, I find the work to be top notch for what it is, though, and I'm still drawn to her face, particularly the very cute smile on the alternate Creator's Choice version. But everything else? That takes a special kind of collector. If you fit the bill, pick her or the violet bikini-clad version in May for about ¥12,800.
