Megahouse to do Yu Yu?

Is this true? Do my eyes deceive me??

There's Kurama

There's Hiei

And Yuusuke

They're all bound to be released on 2012. So there's MegaHouse's Rurouni Kenshin series and now, Yu Yu Hakusho. Is this a revival of some sort? At least, I don't feel to bad about not being able to get the Banpresto Yu Yu figures.

Is it still too early to hope that somehow, Fushigi Yuugi figures will come soon? XD


So my first post was right all along~ The Yu Yu figs will be done by Kotobukiya after all!

Once again, it's been so long...and I need help!

Been so busy that I rarely have time for anything anymore. Between work, the pets and family, it seems that the only "alone time" I have is when I'm reading. (Already at book 4 of A Song of Ice and Fire - A Feast for Crows.)

However, during the long weekend early this month, I was able to sort through some of my crates of toys. I've kept pretty much all of my trading figures and gashapon plus a splash of large figures here and there (those that are hardy enough to be kept without a box). That and crates of unopened Han Solo figures have taken up residence under my bed. All that are left out on display are the bulk of my large figure collection, Mighty Muggs and the bigger Han Solos that I have.

So while sorting, I've chanced upon figures that are quite unknown to me. Either I do not know who they are, where they're from or other details that would otherwise have completed the Excel sheet that I maintain for my figures.

I know that there are readers of this blog who are quite knowledgeable about figures, no matter how obscure they seem to be. So I've decided to ask for a bit of help in identifying the figures that remain strangers to me.

I will set up a section in this blog where I'll put the images of the figures that I need help with and hopefully, some kindhearted collector can shed some light in the things I am ignorant about. Hopefully, I can get that done this weekend!
