Watch the vacuum around these extra tiny Kamen Rider figures

Banpresto is out to prove that you really can get big things in small packages. Their new Micro line of figures intend to take the super-sized cast of Kamen Rider and shrink them down to a mere 1.5 cm. That's just a little mo...

Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Agito Shining Form
by Andres Cerrato

Kamen Rider Agito has had his share of figures. It was one of the notorious early releases in the S.H. Figuarts line, namely due to the fact it only came with the standard figure and two extra hands. Since then, the other forms and riders have seen release and have come with more accessories, yet we haven't seen the strongest form of them all, Shining Agito.

As the name would imply, this new figure might truly shine. Find out if it does after the jump for today's review of S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Agito Shining Form.

The original S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Kabuto was released more than 5 years ago. At that time, it was a great figure and in many respects, still is. However, with 5 years come a lot of innovations. Bandai deemed it necessary...

S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Shin is something new

Kamen Rider Shin doesn't look like the Kamen Riders that you're used to. He looks more like an SIC representation of some other Rider, but no, this is Shin. The result of 1990s need for grimdark and edgy, Kamen Rider Shin tri...

Tomopop LinkUP: the grand opening edition photo
Tomopop LinkUP: the grand opening edition
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome, Tomopeeps, to the first ever Tomopop LinkUP! A lot of news comes out in any given week and there just isn't enough time in a day to get it out. It's not bad news, in fact it's quite good news, but when you deal with a few hundred tips in a week like we do, some stuff is just bound to fall to the wayside. 

Our solution is Tomopop LinkUP; taking the best of what's been left behind and rounding it all up into one big report. Unlike the daily news you see around here, LinkUP consists of a series of short blurbs and teaser images with links you can follow for more information. If the rest of the site is the main course, then consider this the dessert.

And speaking of dessert, this week we'll be talking about Japan's incredible holiday cakes, designer toys, robots, anime stuff, and even a few videos!

SDCC 2013: Tamashii Nations
by Brian Szabelski

So we've seen Sailor Senshi and superheroes, xenomorphs and other morphers. But the Tamashii Nations booth was home to more than just some new reveals; plenty of figures coming in the next 6 months were all on display, from the Pink and Red Rangers (both original and armored versions), to a fantastic Figuarts Zero Trunks. 

Don't even start on the gigantic Sigma, or one of my surprise favorites, the black version of Zero. The One Piece Figuarts Zero releases are looking quite amazing as well, specifically Zoro's mid-attack lunge that you see in the header. 

Check out the gallery to see some of what you can expect over the coming months, and let us know in the comments which of these figures you're most looking forward to!
