SDCC 2013: Project Triforce

Project Triforce hasn't been on my radar, but their SDCC offerings were impressive. As you can see, they make figures and replicas of popular video game properties. The big news from their booth is the Hawken mech. It's still...

Dark Horse's booth at SDCC had a nice selection of comic, TV, and video game figures. There were even some surprises. Beginning with Mass Effect, Dark Horse had a large-scale Alliance Normandy SR-2 by Gentle Giant that will ...

Huge LEGO Normandy from Mass Effect is pretty amazing

Given its swoopy, curved design, recreating the Normandy SR2 from Mass Effect was always going to be a tricky task. But what if you also wanted to make it is a big as a coffee table? Believe it or not, that's exactly what LEG...

Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Mass Effect Bishoujo Shepard photo
Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Mass Effect Bishoujo Shepard
by Tianxiao Ma

Kotobukiya's Bishoujo line has touched many licensed properties, but I can honestly say I didn't expect a Mass Effect Bishoujo. I wasn't sure what to make of the Mass Effect Bishoujo Shepard, as she looked quite a bit more conservative (and boring, I felt at the time) than the other Bishoujo figures. Now the release date is almost upon us, and she's sitting on my table.

This figure surprised me in a few ways. It's nice because sometimes, you think you can discern everything about a figure from its promo shots. After all, PVC statues don't move or change. With Shepard (first name Jane), there are a few intricacies to the design that don't really show up in the promo shots. Read on for a better idea of just what you'd be getting.

Bishoujo Shepard pushed out to April

Kotobukiya updated their Facebook page to say that Bishoujo Shepard will be coming in April instead of March as previously reported. It's not a significant delay but I was kind of looking forward to seeing her out in the wild...

Get the FemShep Bishoujo limited version from BioWare

Tomopop Review: Play Arts Kai Garrus Vakarian photo
Tomopop Review: Play Arts Kai Garrus Vakarian
by Brian Szabelski

Shepard was not so good. Ashley was decidedly middle of the road. So that leaves the best of the three characters featured in Square Enix's Play Arts Kai Mass Effect 3 line, Garrus, as the last one to review. Anyone who's played the trilogy would probably concur because Garrus is the best spacebro you could ask for (and if you don't ... well, I'm sorry you feel that way).

Naturally, his was the figure I was most excited about ... and subsequently, the most nervous about. Turian bodies are a whole lot different than human ones and I wasn't sure how it would be as a poseable figure. Do we have anything to worry about? Come on past the jump and find out!

Tomopop Review: Play Arts Kai Ashley Williams photo
Tomopop Review: Play Arts Kai Ashley Williams
by Brian Szabelski

Just last week, we reviewed Square Enix's Play Arts Kai Commander Shepard, and he was not that great. Maybe that's putting it a little lightly, but there are still two other Play Arts Kai Mass Effect 3 figures, so hopefully at least one is better, right? 

We're just about to find out, because next up is Play Arts Kai Ashley Williams. Having not been much of an Ashley fan before, and not really digging her Mass Effect 3 look, I was a bit indifferent to her as a figure and she was admittedly the least of the three I was looking forward to reviewing. Can the Play Arts Kai possibly change my mind, or am I still as indifferent as before? And heck, is she better than Shepard? Once again, we jump through the Tomopop relay to find out!
