Kotobukiya One Coin Figure Series - Shin Megami Tensei - 2005

Kotobukiya is a Japanese based company that specializes in figurines and toys. A vast majority of their products are available only in Japan in local stores or online. A small amount have been realeased in English speaking countries under the Koto, Inc. name.

Early in 2005, Kotobukiya released a new set of Shin Megami Tensei figures through it's One Coin Figure Series. One Coin gets its name from the simple idea that the product can be bought with a single ¥500 piece. Due to their price, this series is very popular and has had new figures based on all sorts of games, anime and other properties. This is not the first time that Megami Tensei in general has had a One Coin release, although the last set was (as far as I can determine) from another company.

Unfortunately, the boxes themselves give absolutely no indication as to which figure is inside. Luckily, most online stores and auctions on eBay feature auctions for specific characters in already opened boxes. The figures, unlike the last Megaten related One Coin series, are made of soft plastic and can thus withstand being bent and prodded, which is quite nice considering a few have to be put together. This particular release is hit and miss in terms of contruction and design, however. A few really do stand out, such as the Jack Frost and Jack Lantern figure.

In any case, pictures speak louder than words, so click the thumbnails below to see full-sized images of each included character. (Mary, unfortunately, is missing the top half of her candelabra).

    And please don’t miss Seraphpiyo’s Pantheon Workshop. Her homemade crafts are even cooler than the Kotobukiya set @:c),

Fredric Paul’s article touched off a discussion with some colleagues of mine, who agreed that Google abuses has become careless thanks to its “monopoly” with AdSense by (among other things) callously dropping AdSense participants for alleged click fraud without a reasonable appeals policy. A request for an explanation fell on deaf ears, and my colleague was left with the impression that Google “would have been more likely to work with me,” if it weren’t in such a strong position.
