Tomopop Review: Good Smile Company's Sorceress

Good Smile Company generally sticks to the popular properties (or pushes their own) when they make figures, but sometimes random partnerships happen and you get something way out of left field. This is probably why you're loo...

Snow Miku Snow Bell ver. is cute. Like, beyond belief adorably cute. Way too cute to be left as just a single figure so Good Smile Company and Max Factory are spreading the love. 2015 will be the first year were a new Snow Miku design will be used for both a new Nedoroid and a new figma! Ah, they're so great, and I'm glad we're finally getting a figma that isn't just a repaint of another Miku. Both figures will also be accompanied by their own little Yukine bunny figure.

Details are pretty light at the moment, though I'm sure we won't have to wait too long before we see and learn more about these figures. Of course they'll be available at Wonder Festival 2015 (Winter) on February 8 when we'll all have the opportunity to place an order online! As a special treat they're also adding Snow Bell Miku to the Hatsune Miku Project Diva arcade game.

One of the biggest surprises to come out of Wonder Festival Summer was the reveal of Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Elsa from Frozen. Photos weren't allowed and absolutely nobody broke that rule to sneak a photo, so I can only imagine what it looked like. So only from what I heard, Good Smile Company had a prototype of Elsa holding a snowflake and accompanied by Olaf.

Now Good Smile Company has released promo pictures of Nendoroid Elsa all in color so we can see what she finally looks like. Frozen fans will love her because she's wearing her blue, glittery dress, holding that snowflake, and Olaf is still with her. Not sure if she's going to come with more accessories, but it's evident that she will have at least two interchangeable faces. 

Information on this figure is still unknown, no release date info or pre-order info. Still, if they're releasing promo images now, it has to be soon. December or January would be a perfect release date, just saying.

Good Smile reveals DRAMAtical Murder's Ren photo
Good Smile reveals DRAMAtical Murder's Ren
by Martin Siggers

I don't know too much about DRAMAtical Murder but the visual novel (and now anime) has already made it's mark in the toy world, with several fine figures mostly of protagonist Aoba. During today's Kahotan Station stream, the team over at Good Smile Company announced their latest addition to the range, this time of Aoba's companion Ren.

Dubbed 'Rhyme Mode ver.' it;'s another tremendously striking figure that keeps up a recent GSC tradition of incredibly awesome, elaborate bases. The figure itself is no slouch either, coming with two display options. You can have a massive, raggedy cloak for maximum visual impact, or you can remove it for maximum bishonen-ogling appeal. It also looks liek those on a tighter budget will have the option of the shirtless version with a much simpler base. In either case, it's another fine looking product that's no doubt going to send fans of the game wild.

Good Smile Company's Eren Yeager is still a ways away, but Akiba Hobby has posted a large gallery of a pre-production sample. As expected of a GSC figure, the sculpt and paint job are looking great so far.

I really like these dynamic, aerial poses for their Attack on Titan figures. But more than that, I like the unintentional humor of looking at them off-angle and realizing they look like drunk people staggering around. Seriously, check out the gallery and tell me what you think.
