Figures from Good Smile Company and more
There were some intriguing Nendoroid and figma announcements at Wonder Festival but the scale figure previews weren't as interesting. Under the Wonderful Hobby Life For You banner, Good Smile Company and associated groups sho...
Steady as she goes
Megahouse seem to be pretty happy to rest on its established lines and not really rocking their boat and I'm sure that's fine for many.
Wonder Festival showed us more P.O.P figures and some other figures based on popular Jump...
Normally, here at Tomopop, we tend to avoid the 100% NSFW coverage, which I feel is a shame because there are some really REALLY good Ero figures out there which look classy without going too far into the realm of lewd but I ...
What more needs to be said?
Just look at the banner! Just look at it!! Bathe in the awesomeness that is the final scene between X and zero in Megaman X!
Done enough? Then check out the figure of Yuzuruha who, sadly was a bit too NSFW to get onto the banner. Still a very sexy figure though! Oh yeah, there's also an Ann figure from persona 5. Now, Back to Yuzuruha!!
So Nier yet so far
Since their resurrection and rebranding from the Yamato name, Flare has been keeping pretty low key on their releases, slowly building up their catalogue with some interesting figures and that trend is set to continue.
Gaming licenses and a few classics
By my estimates there were about 17 million Nendoroids announced/shown at WonFes. The figma announcements were not as numerous but there were still some juicy ones.
Just as with Nendoroids, the figma lineup has diversified ou...
the money pit
Kotobukiya clearly knew that they were sitting on a money pit when they released the first Frame Arms: Girl since they seem to be pushing more of them out at the expense of the others, including the original Frame Arms line, ...
The Big Leagues
Kotobukiya were the first company to have a proper focus on the western markets and took steps to license western titles for their figures and so they have an interesting mix of figures from anime and also western movies and ...
At the last Wonder Festival, Aquamarine teased us with placeholders and a prototype of Jack-O and kuradoberi Jam from Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator and now, we get to see them in all their glory!
I have to admit that I'm a little...
Start saving now
I think any responsible financial planner would take Wonder Festival into account (well, provided they collect figures). I mean, look at all this stuff! This is real stuff that is coming!
I'm not the biggest Nendoroid collect...
More Mecha Musume!
Mecha Musume have definitely had a rather large resurgence as of late. After the retirement of Busou Shinki, we didn't get much until Bandai introduced the AGP line with the gundam girls, after that, Kotobukiya ran away with ...
Is it that time already? Better get comfortable as the big japanese figure makers are setting up their show of intent for the next six months. In case you didn't get the memo, 2017 is the year of Fate and even the figure make...
Wishing I was there
Diamond Select Toys has released preview images and information for the products which it will have on display at Toy Fair in NYC this weekend.
It's a LOT of information (just see all of the photos in the gallery!) but highli...
(Or might save it. Who knows?)
Hey guys & gals, it's just five more days until Valentine's Day. Have you bought anything nice for your partner? (Or for yourself?)
If you're sick of giving jewelry (and who isn't?), maybe it's time to head over to the HBO Store to check out their wide array of... okay, well, it's mostly a lot of Game of Thrones stuff. But it's neat stuff! Honest!
Check out the full gift guide after the jump.
Ladies (and Bats) Night
Diamond Select Toys has an array of outstanding collectibles on the way to a comic book (or specialty) store near you. These items -- likely available right now as you're reading this -- are as follows:
He's crazy for you.. and also just crazy
Last month, Kotobukiya unveiled and opened pre-orders for an absolutely insane-looking ArtFX+ Carnage guaranteed to drive fans crazy.
This stunning 1/10 scale figure stands over 7-inches tall and captures the villain's look i...
Now, not when you feel like it!
Walgreens has nabbed yet another exclusive wave of Marvel Minimates, adding Marvel Minimates Series 4 to its already sizable selection of exclusives. In addition, the previously announced Marvel Animated Minimates Series 3 is...
Oh, Kidrobot, you so cray(on) cray!
Kidrobot seems to involve itself in some unusual pairings. In fact, one of the things I love about the company is that you never seem to know what's coming next. Case-in-point? Kidrobot has teamed up with Crayola (that's righ...
The power of Zeus compels you
In just a few short years, Kotobukiya's Bishoujo line has evolved to cover properties from all kinds of entertainment media including games and film. But the brand began with comic book characters, and here we return to its roots with Wonder Girl.
I have lots and lots of Bishoujo figures in my collection, yet I couldn't resist adding one more. Read on for my thoughts and review!
Going down the Cu-poche rabbit hole
Toy collectors have a ton of choices when it comes to small, chibi-fied collectibles. From gachapon capsules to Nendoroids, they'll always be popular due to their accessibility and affordability.
It's no surprise, then, that ...
Who doesn't want a DCAU Scarecrow bust?
Still hunting for last minute gifts? (If so, why'd you wait so long?) Diamond Select Toys has the perfect items for those of you who might be in last-second panic mode while looking for the collector in your lives. (Or gifts ...
They're kind of affordable!
Christmas (or your winter gift-giving holiday of choice) is almost upon us! While it's fun to give and receive gifts, it can be quite stressful doing the actual planning and shopping. So what do you buy for that special figur...
3, 2, 1, let's jam!
One of the most beloved anime series of all time is getting a fitting PVC tribute as Kotobukiya puts their ARTFX J Spike Spiegel up for pre-order! It really is Christmas time!
Ever since I started collecting six years ago, Sp...
Upcoming figures from Alter, MegaHouse
It's late fall so you know what that means: MegaHobby Expo time! I'm always hyped to see what kind of new stuff is coming soon (or in Alter's case, much later). Let this be a reminder for all of you to start saving up!
A chance to save
Matty Collector started its Black Friday & Cyber Monday celebration on Wednesday, with a 40% off sale on an array of older items and -- to top it off -- free shipping on all orders.
While the savings are slightly less tha...
Who doesn't love a sale?
Long-time readers probably know that, while I'm a fan of the Marvel Legends line, the price hikes over the years have been insane. Back when Hasbro re-launched the line, the figures were about US$13 but since then the MSRP ha...
Dubbed "Twinkle Snow"
It's that time of the year when we check out the latest Snow Miku design and melt from the cuteness! Or maybe that's just my heater cranked way up.
Kahotan's blog has previews up for both the figma and Nendoroid versions of n...
Say Alola to the Alola region
