Due to scheduling difficulties, I wasn't able to get a question post up. My deepest apologies, dearest Tomocast listeners. To make up for it, I brought on a trio of guests that will surely entertain you. To...
The most recent Kahotan preview is Nendoroid Uzume Uno, from the anime Fantasista Doll. While most of you would think I'd go nuts over the tiny hat, there's two little accessories I like better. One is the kissing face U...
We recently gave a first look at what some of the Nendoroid More Pajamas accessories looked like when shown with actual figures. Thanks to yesterday's post on Good Smile Company Lab's blog, there are even more images to share, some showcasing another PJ mold. The previous images we saw only featured the body with the hands resting in front with the legs spread to the sides in a collared, button-down top with long pants. The other one has the figure seated with the legs bent and hands resting on the knees. The pajamas on this body type strike me as more cutesy, with puffy short sleeves and frilly edging on the hems.
From looking at the photos, I'd say that there is a good variety of colors in the accessories, the palette fitting many different character types. Although I am a tad disappointed that there isn't anything for the boy Nendoroids. Maybe those will come later?
Hello and welcome back to another week of Tomopop LinkUP! It's been pretty crazy this past week, what with everyone trying to extend Black Friday and Cyber Monday into more than just a single day. If you looked around there were some good figure deals to be had, though I can't say I found much of interest at major retailers. Seemed like this year the best deals were online. Or maybe that's the same as every year and I'm just so used to buying stuff online that I don't notice anymore. Well, whatever the case, there were some good stuff out there.
This week on LinkUP we've got an unintentionally large number of Nendoroids to talk about alongside some designer figures, prototypes, bots, another Kickstarter, and some superheroes.
As is no secret by now, I much prefer the Fate series' Saber in her rare feminine versions. As good as she looks in a suit, few things beat something like Saber Lily, or in this case a new Bride version. Much as I dislike Nen...
I like what I see in the sculpt and colors so far, but found the lack of variety a little off putting. Fortunately, tomorrow they will be showing off a new tunic type of pajama so I am hoping to see a little bit more variety. It's not that I don't think the two Milky Holmes Nendoroids they showed off here were not cute or anything, but I consider showing off two figurines with exactly the same bottom half sculpting with some recolors no matter the quality of the sculpt to look pretty cheap. But at least the colors chosen are pretty rich and pajama-like, aren't they?
What do you think Tomopeeps? Am I just spoiled on highly detailed figurines? Am I being too critical? Let me know in the comments.
Day Break Illusion is probably one of the worst series in recent memory that I've still managed to finish. Against all odds, it was an awful, muddled mess. A dark, tarot-themed magical girl series helmed by a number of Nanoha...
Nendoroid Saber Bride comes with her sword (Aestus Estus: The Embryonic Flame) and the choice of three faces: a smiling face, a sideways glance, and a really bizarre-looking one apparently created by Fate/EXTRA CCC's character designer. She might also come with a musical note that can attach to her hair.
If you remember the recent Nendoroid Saber Extra preview, you may recall that I mentioned Saber Extra was one of my least favorite Saber designs... mostly because Saber Bride exists and currently holds the dubious honor of being my least favorite. While I'm not fond of the design under normal circumstances, I think I like it even less in a super-deformed (or chibi) format since it really doesn't translate well. However, the oddest thing about this is that the nendoroid seems to be getting a mass release whereas the figma was part of a game bundle, which seems to be something of a trend.
Pre-orders are listed as opening on December 5th. In the mean-time, be sure to check out the photos in the gallery.
Kahotan's latest preview is the upcoming Nendoroid Akari Taiyou from Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou, a teeny tiny version of the tarot-wielding protagonist. Sadly, you don't get the life-sized tarot card she's pictured with in one of the photos, but you do get a scaled-down one as an accessory, along with her Tenebrae Mode hair and face, along with her rapier. So, there's always the choice between the happy, smiling version and the more serious business version, which is the one I think looks better.
Akari's co-star in the series, Seira Hoshikawa, is also being made into a Nendoroid, with the assumption being that she's coming out sometime in 2014. As for Akari, you'll get the chance to pre-order her starting Tuesday, Dec. 3, in Japan.
Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's Thanksgiving Day in the States and if you're anything like me you're probably bursting with great food and looking forward to a long tryptophan-induced nap. But while others were slaving over a hot stove I've been busy stuffing this week's LinkUP with all sorts of great stuff guaranteed not to put you to sleep!
This week we've got Japanese Happy Meal toys, plush Christmas ornaments, lots of handmade stuff, several teasers, and more. It's all gravy!
All you 3DS owners may be in Kalos or Hyrule or a courtroom right now, but your Animal Crossing towns keep rolling along, thanks to the tireless dedication of the canine secretary Shizue, or Isabelle as she's m...
After Kahotan previewed her last week, we knew Nendoroid Aigis would be going up for pre-orders today, and now she's being listed at all the major stores. I'm pretty sure I don't need to run over how totally adorable she is, ...
With her colour prototype recently unveiled at Miyazawa Model Expo, it was surely only a matter of tiem before the adorable Nendoroid Aigis got a full-fat Kahotan preview. That day is today, as Kahotan busts out the camera and gives us plenty of details on this latest release.
Firstly, there's confirmation Aigis will be one of the fully-articulated edition Nendoroids, which means proper elbow and knee joints for extra poseability. She's also shown with a great array of accessories, including effects parts for her finger guns. There's also three of her removable arm weapons included - cannon, rifle and bad-ass rocket punch gauntlet. You'll get a matching number of faces too, with smiling, angry and close-eyed being your options. Most adorably, Aigis also comes with a miniature version of her 'charred screw', an item that will be familiar to dedicated players of Persona 3.
I'm pretty sure I don't need to tell you how good the sculpt and paint look - she's a perfect chibified recreation of the character, and darn adorable to boot. We don't have a confirmed price yet, but pre-orders will open next week on the 26th. I'm pretty sure I'll be getting hold of her, how about you readers?
