Or why my wallet is empty
Mar 01
Why is March such a painful month for us? It seems like every march we get bombarded with a  bunch of cool stuff that we all want all at once. Do companies think that we've recovered from the holidays by now and can affo... read

Hello and welcome back to another week of Tomopop LinkUP! In one week from today we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving here in America and I for one am looking forward to getting stuffed on some turkey! Even though it's a popular... read feature

If last month's pre-orders for Kotobukiya's Sumika weren't enough to get you going, AmiAmi's blog has brought a collection of images specially designed to make you support the war effort! As I said, seeing such a brightly col... read feature


Pre-order a cheerier Muv-Luv lady with Sumika

Kotobukiya - 1/7 Scale
Sep 12
Given the popularity, it's no surprise we've seen a lot of Muv-Luv figures. A whole lot. But, they usually tend to be rather subdued or dark in some way, as you'd probably expect from Alternative in the first place. Thus, it'... read
Preview Kagami Sumika photo
She is pretty as a picture. Love the colors!
Kotobukiya recently gave us a preview of their latest figurine Kagami Sumika based on Muv-Luv Alternative. I really appreciate the wide range of complimenting colors used for her character, from her red hair to yellow ri... read feature

Kotobukiya - 1/7 Scale
Aug 10
It's time for yet another Muv-Luv lovely, with Kotobukiya and the lilac-haired Inia. I won't lie though, I can barely tell the difference between this and any of the other multitudes of Inia figures that seem to crop up every... read

Pick up Muv-Luv's Kasumi during some lonely downtime

Kotobukiya - 1/6 Scale
Aug 09
I always appreciate seeing the Muv-Luv girls out of their armor, and Kotobukiya's latest bunny is definitely no exception even if she looks a bit down in the dumps. She may not be the perkiest bunnygirl on the market, but it'... read

Cryska Barchenowa review photo
The shiniest butt I've seen in a while
If there's one thing you should know about me, it's that I'm a fan of glossy butts. Characters in sci-fi anime often need to get into skin-tight body suits to do something or other, so I get plenty of opportunities to see shi... read feature

Same character, different takes
Yesterday there were two different previews for figures of the same character, so I figured I'd lump them together here.  The figma blog had their preview, showing all the accessories and the usual stuff. Max Factory's f... read feature

A must get if you ordered Cryska
Ah, Muv Luv Alternative: Total eclipse, you managed to somehow make me appreciate my least favorite genre of anime, horror types. You did so by throwing in amazing amounts of pretty women and mechs, both of which I ... read feature


This fabulous Yui Takamura figure is being re-released

Kotobukiya's bringing her back in July
Mar 14
Yeah sure, Kotobukiya's been making the Muv-Luv girls in their skin-tight suits as of late. Yui got that treatment not long ago. But remember when they put her in a more elegant outfit? I find that version much sexier than ev... read

Skin-tight suits are great, aren't they?

Break it down.

Power suits and Figmas usually work very well together, but there is something a little off to me about Max Factory's Figma version of Yui Takamura. Perhaps I have been spoiled on the Nendoroid version of Yui, but her Figma c... read

Miyazawa Model Exhibition: ALPHAMAX

So many ladies, so little time

While Wave does a good job with their Beach Queen line of ladies, I think ALPHAMAX has them beat. As seen from the Miyazawa Model Exhibition, their ladies are seemingly larger and of better quality. Then again, you usually ha... read

Muv-Luv's Yui takes some time--and clothes--off
