Fireball from Disney

This weekend I went to something called Acen, which stands for Anime Central and is an Anime convention in Chicago.

As per usual, it was a lot of fun... but this year I found something new there... THIS!

This wee robot stands 4 inches tall and is SO poseable! Her hip pivots, her head tilts, her toes wiggle, her fingers move, her elbows, knees, legs, arms etc... everything moves and is jointed and she's so amazingly poseable!!! I bought her not knowing what she was at all... or even that she's as poseable as she is... and my friend who can read Japanese writing told me she's from an Anime/Disney collaboration called Fireball

I haven't yet watched any of the episodes, but I found some on YouTube and will do that soon... but it doesn't matter how good the show is or isn't... this figure is AMAZING! (I promptly bought the entire set off ebay when I got home!)


  1. Oh how neat! I would have come with you if I lived closer.

  2. You get all the good bear shows in your area, we get the weird anime stuff... if only there were some sort of "Share your conventions" program XD
