The Pokemon Center is coming back to the US online

After losing The Pokemon Center in New York City, I thought the only way I’d be able to go to one again was if I went back to Japan. It was such a magical store! I just grabbed whatever I wanted, and didn’t care ...

Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts Super Mario + Sets A & B
by Andres Cerrato

Mario is the figure that so many have wanted a quality representation of. While there have been a few over the years, they did little more than just move arms up and down. Earlier this year, Bandai brought the news that many had waited for, an articulated Mario was on the way. Long rumored, but finally in existence. Not only were we getting Mario, but there's also the expansion parts sets to add more of the Mushroom Kingdom. 

How does S.H. Figuarts Mario and accessories sold separately fair? Find out in today's video review!

Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: Nendoroid Link photo
Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: Nendoroid Link
by Brian Szabelski

It was nearly a year ago that I first talked about how much I'd like to see a Nendoroid of Wind Waker Link, and at the past two WonFes events, we've seen the green-clad warrior in his chibi form. While February's event brought us the deco master, complete with Wind Waker, the Miyazawa Model Exhibition set-up shows us Link with sword and shield. 

I can imagine this little fellow is going to be super-popular come August (the sound of crashing websites is on the horizon) and he'll be at ¥4,000, slightly higher than some of the other Nendos I've bought in the past. But hey, at least it's not Ocarina of Time Link with a motion-activated Navi base as it's accessory, right?
