FuRyu's Transformers 4 Bumblebee prize figure is impressive

FyRyu's first shots at doing Transformers prize figures are actually pretty impressive. Their first figure, Transformers: Age of Extinction Optimus Prime, comes loaded with finely sculpted details, and the type of paint ...

Tomopop Review: FuRyu's Cardcaptor Sakura
by Martin Siggers

The drought of Cardcaptor Sakura figures has long been a source of incredible frustration to me. The series has everything you need to make an army of great collectibles - cute girls, handsome boys, annoying mascots and an adorable lead character who has an endless supply of flashy outfits. Even though Good Smile Company announced a very adorable Nendoroid, there's still a glaring lack of scale static figures. So when FuRyu announced they would be making a prize figure of Sakura, fans jumped all over it. Can something traditionally cheap and cheerful live up to a long held desire though?

FuRyu's Eren Yeager is looking impressive for a prize figure

I'm pretty late at this, but I'm finally watching Attack on Titan now that the English dub is airing on Toonami. I'm really enjoying it, though it hasn't exactly been what I was expecting. Somehow I thought it would be a lot ...

A little over a month ago, we had just a peek at this Mikasa figure when we had a look at her partner in plastic, Eren. And it's about time, too, since she's due for release in June.

Check out the gallery for some pictures from FuRyu's production blog, and let us know what your thoughts are! Personally, I think she's great for a prize figure. I mean, I guess her hair looks a little goopy, but it's tough to argue with ~¥1,600.

Biggish gallery appears for FuRyu's biggish Colossal Titan

At 21-cm tall, FuRyu's Colossal Titan is big enough to tower over your Attack on Titan figma... even if he doesn't exactly scale well. The recently released soft vinyl figure has received a decent-sized photo gallery that sho...

by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's been a pretty busy week in all sorts of ways. We're still plowing our way through Wonder Festival coverage with the shadow of Toy Fair looming over us. But outside of that the Olympics are in full swing once again and Valentine's Day is tomorrow, probably the two best events for precious metals. Man, why is the shortest month of the year also the busiest?

This week we've got more galleries, customs, LEGO pieces, and plushies. Follow me after the jump to see it all! Incidentally, I've tried to watch Full Metal Panic twice and still haven't finished the first season...

Tomopop LinkUP: Beach movie
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! I know I've complained at least once already about the winter, but when dealing with subzero temps as often as we have this year I think it warrants some additional complaining. They say the best way to deal with the cold is to think about warm weather, but that's just something people from warm climates say.

Still, the Japanese seem to be pretty content with the warm thoughts; just look at all of the bathing suit-clad figures they've been cranking out this winter! I don't even remember the last time I went to the beach; it's been years. My parents have a pool, at least, but I only used it once last year. Man, I need to get more sun...

Anyway, this week we've got more girls in swimwear, oddball movie toys, and even some hand-knit TV toys. Follow me in to the deep end after the jump!

Someone finally got around to making Cardcaptor Sakura

For years I've dreamed of someone making scale Cardcaptor Sakura figures and allowing me to own a piece of my childhood. I even nominated Sakura herself for our Fantasy Figurine article earlier this year, and while ...
