Whenever people think about major Japanese franchises born from the manga industry, the word Dragonball almost always comes to mind. As we wait for the release of the live action film in 2009 with anticipation, review the classic series to see what elements the film developers have added to the film for our enjoyment.

First, start by matching the star cast with the original characters. Comparing people in the 3D world with characters on paper can be a difficult process, to make this activity more fun, the developers of Banpresto created figures for the two female protagonists of the series, Bulma and Chichi.

Both Bulma the inventor and Chichi, Son Goku's wife are created to scale with their attractiveness accentuated. Although it's the men that are most prominently featured in the manga, nobody can deny the big roles these two women play in the series.

Compare the starring list of the live action film with these two figures and decide if the much anticipated film will fulfill your expectations.

The inventor Buruma and Son Goku's wife Chichi are both available at the same price of US$ 17.90 only.



Kotobukiya's ARTFX theater series freezes a momentous instant from the movie Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and brought it to the real world in full painstaking detail.

The trolley chase scene is remembered by all fans as one of the most exciting moments in the film. Sliding down the rail in a puny cart, the team is pursued by the violently insane priest Mora Ram and has to avoid the licking flame, trickling lava and falling debris.

Created in 3D you can turn the statue around and around to fully appreciate the danger of the situation. The taut muscles, adrenaline satiated expression on Indiana Jones' face all tell of the rough ride the cast is going through.

The Temple of Doom Statue is now available for US$ 159.90 only.



Seto San, the heroine of Seto no Hanayome has made her way to the figma series. Created also by Asai Maki who has crafted Miku above, the face and cuteness of San is only to be expected. By installing multiple points of articulation, the sculptor allows players to recreate all sorts of scenes from the pop series.

San's clothes and hair are made by softer materials to allow her full freedom of movement. To portray the two poles of her personality, the cuteness and the heroism, her package comes with smiling and glaring expression parts, the sword and cat ears as well as her mermaid's tail.

Seto San is swimming through the wintry currents and is scheduled to arrive at our warehouse in January next year. Preorder her for US$ 29.90 only.



The classics are getting revived, first we have Shin Getter the robot, now we have Juohmaru and Sakura Hime, the participants of robotic wrestling matches in the highly popular classic manga/anime series Plawres Sanshiro back in the 80s.

Although the two are robots, they spot human faces and shapes completed with expressions. While Juohmaru, Sanshiro's robot has a muscular frame, a form seldom seen in the figma series, Sakura Hime, the robot of his mentor Fubuki Kyoko spots features feminine curves.

Like all figures in the figma series, attention is not only paid on the creation of lifelike toys, but the smoothest actions as well. A combination of soft plastic and highly developed joints ensure that players can recreate all memorable battle scenes they have seen in their favourite series.

The robots Juohmaru and Sakura Hime are at the finishing stages of their production and will be available in February next year. Start planning your Plawres matches by preording the robots for 29.90 each only.



Two highly popular silver haired young men from Square Enix's hit games Final Fantasy 7 and Kingdom Hearts are walking into the Static Arts studio, all prepared to have their statues made for your idol worshipping ease.

Sephiroth, the charismatic anti-hero is dressed fully in black, posing majestically on a mound of swirling flames. With his silvery sharp sword in hand, he commands submission and subservience all round.

The younger of the two, Riku is less commanding and more laid back but still awe inspiring. Leaning a against a crumbling wing sculpture, the boy appears relaxed, but is fully ready to strike shall anything pop up.

Sephiroth and Riku's statues will be ready in March so get your altars ready. Sephiroth is available for US$ 189.90 and Riku for US$ 169.90 only.



Manga/anime and game loving girls have never been so popular. A new series of prepainted figures are made for the members of the Lucky Star club. The first two are Konata the heroine and Kagami, the older of the Hiiragi twins.

Konata the cute redefinition of otaku can be as commanding as strong headed characters like Haruhi. This aspect of her is fully shown in her posture.

Unlike her sweetly clumsy younger twin, Kagami is efficient, but less friendly, at least in the exterior level. Despite her cool outlook, she actually likes being surrounded by friends, so be sure to get at least one of the Lucky Star club girls with her to keep her happy.

Konata and Kagami will be coming for the summer holidays in June next year and is available for preorder for US$ 17.90 each.
