Ninja Gaiden 3 E3 preview Trailer

Posted by zerofigures on February 28, 2011

So Tecmo, is this why I can’t play Dead or Alive 5 yet?

Sure it won’t be the same without Itagaki but I think I’ll be happy with what I get.

So please, after Ninja Gaiden 3 is complete and in my possession, please feel free to finish any new Dead or Alive game you might be working on (portable games don’t count, and please no photo games, just pure jiggly non-stop kick ass action).

I have enough faith in Tecmo to know Ninja Gaiden 3 will be awesome. The gave us NG Black on Xbox and Sigma one and two on the PS3 (notice those are the enhanced versions), and they did not disappoint.  I have my fingers crossed for some old school and new school badassery so please hurry up.

Fusion Works Gundam Converge Vol 2 Complete

Posted by zerofigures on February 18, 2011

Here we have Fusion Works Gundam Converge Vol 2.  There are 6 pieces in the set not including the one variant.  They are about 2.5″ tall each.

For their size they are pretty detailed and should make any Gundam fan happy.  The colors are sharp and the most work you’ll have to do to display them is attach their weapon and/or shield and head (if it came loose while Shipping).

Although they are sold like gashapon in boxes, they are not random.  Each box is individually numbered and pictured.  Kinda like some previous Bleach and one Piece sets.   Each volume has a variant.  In the 2nd set, the variant is the Unicorn Gundam with Bazooka instead of the rifle.  In the first set, the variant was an RX78-2 with bazooka instead of rifle.

Got this about a week or two ago and haven’t had much time to look at them, I did happen to take some pics I wanted to post though. Will post more pics once opened.

The last six pictures have been added for comparison.  The RX 78 is from the first set.

OtakunoAnime.com… Buyer Beware!

Posted by zerofigures on February 18, 2011

I titled this posting with a question mark because I’d like to be proven wrong.  I’d like to think that we anime fans and Otaku now have another ally in our quest as consumer for goods.  Somewhere to find that one item we’ve been searching for that sold out months ago.  But lack of information and actions lead me to think otherwise.

I was searching for a figure everywhere, every website (I trust) that I have purchased things in the past from were long sold out.  This lead me to do a long web search to hunt this figure down.  I searched and searched and came upon Otakunoanime.com who had 2 figures I was searching for well below the going prices.  I placed the items in the cart but my buyers instinct kicked in, as well as an old saying, “If it seems to good to be true, it probably is”.

So the research began.  The bottom of their website lists a blog, twitter and facebook.  The blog doesn’t link to a functioning site and the facebook doesn’t either.  The twitter does work but is full of links direct visitors to their main site.  I also found this blog they’ve created which is definitely complete BS.  I feel confident enough saying that due to the fact that a certain Mr. Peter Payne of Jlist.com who frequently updates his blog, wrote that story on Jan 21, 2011 (good eyes Cupcakez89).  I ‘d recommend subscribing to his blog, it’s full of great information on Japan through American eyes.  I did a BBB (Better Business Bureau) search and came up with nothing.  Continued searching and couldn’t find anything except another buyer thinking the same as me  (I hope they do another search and come up on this posting).

I then questioned the authenticity of OnA on MFC and someone  said they thought their cds were fake (I’m inquiring with them now).  So others agree that things don’t seem to be straight with OnA.  I’m hoping that we are wrong and they’re legit and providing our community with some awesomely discounted anime goods, but until then I won’t be providing them with any details of mine.   What’s your opinion on this?

UPDATE – I just got learned.  I know understand why the cd’s are being identified as fake and I agree.  Taking a product, slapping your own catalog number and logo on it , does not make it yours.  The quality of the item is sure to be lower than that of any official product. Thanks MFC.

UPDATE #2 – Peter Payne, jlist.com owner and blogger, has commented and confirmed that Otakunoanime.com is not a trustworthy site. Do not buy from Otakunoanime.com.
