Furyu Persona 5 Joker noodle stopper figure

Take your heart! And your instant noodles! With the upcoming Playstation 4 release on March 31st, it’s time to get back into Persona 5 Royal, and there’s no better way to do so than with this excellent Joker figure!

Joker will sit on top of your instant pot noodle to keep the lid closed while your lunch soaks, or just sit on an available surface as a less practical but super-cool figure. Sitting down, he is approximately 15 in height.

Be sure to check out the Joker noodle stopper figure available for purchase at the Tamarket booth (#24) at this year’s Madman Anime Festival Sydney.

 

 

Tokyo Mew Mew countdown!

A new website has popped up with a teaser image and countdown to announce an upcoming Tokyo Mew Mew project. The countdown will end on April 2nd, so we have a little over a month to ponder the possibilities!

Since the original manga and its anime adaption in the early 2000’s, there have been some recent manga projects, including an all male team version called Tokyo Mew Mew Ore and a sequel to the original called Tokyo Mew Mew 2020 Re-Turn. My speculation would be the latter being green lit for a new anime project.

However it’s not unusual for older anime franchises to be completely rebooted, as we’ve seen with series like Sailor Moon Crystal and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood, which give more faithful to the manga story adaptions than their earlier counterparts.

Furyu Black Butler Sebastian

Yes my lord! The brand-new Black Butler Sebastian figure from Furyu will be available for purchase at our stall (booth #24) at the upcoming Anime Festival Sydney. A must for all Black Butler fans, this figure stands approx. 20cm tall and is the companion piece to the popular seated Ciel figure we previously sold last year. Why not complete your set with one hell of a butler?
