Get over your mommy issues with Clayz's Rei Ayanami

No you haven't fallen into a time warp, this is an Evangelion 2.0 figure in 2014. Like, a thousand years after the film's release. Why this Ayanami? And why now? I don't know, but I welcome it. The subject admittedly isn't th...

Clayz's new Saber looks sick... like literally sick

My first thoughts upon seeing Clayz's photos of a prototype for an armored Saber were is she going to throw up? While the character has been awkwardly posed in the past, never has she looked this nauseous. The 25-cm tall figu...

It's not bad luck to peek at Clayz's Saber Bride early

Clayz has released some in-progress photos of the prototype for its upcoming Fate/EXTRA CCC Saber Bride... and, well, she looks all white. The sculpting looks like it's coming along great. The nice thing is that Clayz has opt...

Tomopop LinkUP: Walking in a winter Wonder Festival photo
Tomopop LinkUP: Walking in a winter Wonder Festival
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to an action packed Tomopop LinkUP. Packed is definitely the right word for this edition as we're looking at probably our biggest LinkUP yet! And no wonder, it's the winter convention season! UK Toy Fair was last week though it was kind of a meh event. In just over a week we've got the first Wonder Festival of the year on February 9 followed by New York Toy Fair launching the following weekend on Feb 16 to 19. I'm sure there's like a dozen more before spring.

And thanks to all of these big toy shows there has been an email tidal wave in our inbox, far more than we've been able to post and there's still more coming in every day. And this is just the stuff leftover from last week! Crazy stuff and there's still tons more coming in every day. It isn't all stuff being prepared for the big events; we've also got some great custom and designer stuff that I'm actually a little sad we haven't had time to post because it's so good! See it all after the jump!

Enjoy a good book with Lilith at your side

Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito was one of the first blatantly yuri anime I ever got into, and as little known as it is I'll definitely remember it for a long time to come. I also remember Clayz' kit of the series' library ...

Let summer live on with this latest bikini-clad Sena

Can you ever have too much Sena? Similar to other figure mainstays like the lovely Kanu Unchou and Tamaki, I think not! Even when that Sena requires a little more work, like this new resin kit from Clayz. Once more, she comes...

Build yourself a pair of demons with Elsie and Haqua

Recently I managed to find the time to see what all the fuss was about with The World God Only Knows, and I'm certainly glad I did. Burning through the first two seasons and all of the OVAs in about a week, it's only a matter...

Let the latest Kobato Hasegawa drain your wallet

If you can't get enough of Haganai's loli wannabe-vampire Kobato, try on the new Resicarat kit from clayz. Rather than picking up the typical finished pvc figure, this Kobato will require some proper putting together--though ...

Pick up a pair of demons from InuBoku

We haven't seen a lot from the youkai-filled InuBoku, so I'm a little surprised that Clayz will be bringing us not just heroine Ririchiyo, but her companion Karuta as well--thankfully in her human form. As is often the case w...

Cuddle up with this new Tony x Takeshi Miyagawa preview photo
Cuddle up with this new Tony x Takeshi Miyagawa preview
by Emily Smalara

It seems like my commentary on the re-release of Tony Taka and Takeshi Miyagawa's nekomimi maids went over like a lead balloon. Most of you seemed to dig the pair, so perhaps it's just the pastel baby blue that didn't sit well with me. Whatever the case, whether you liked the kittens or not Tony and Takeshi are at it again, bringing this couple out, well...nowhere near soon enough.

I don't think I really need to say how much I'm digging the hell out of this pair, do I? The pose is all too enticing, and I love that the two girls have varying figures rather than being carbon copies of each other. While it's just a prototype and of course there are some issues that one might notice, even in this early state it looks like it's shaping up to be a really, really gorgeous duo.

I've got my fingers crossed that the painted product will look remotely this good, because right off the bat this is surely one I'll be keeping a close eye on! Of course, with no price or release date even suggested, it may be a bit before we hear anything else out of Clayz. Here's hoping they'll show up sooner rather than later!

These two kitties aren't quite the cat's meow

Out of all the companies out there, one that's often stood out in my mind as just "not that great" has been Clayz. When I see a Clayz figure, I immediately think of the company's namesake--bland, featureless, boring clay. Thu...
