Spark a revolution with Figuarts ZERO Sabo from One Piece

One of the worst kept secrets in the One Piece anime has finally made his debut in this past weekend's episode and it would seem a figure debut wasn't far behind. Even though the anime refuses thus far to show his face and call him by name,...

Bandai squeezes out some new One Piece figures

How's this for timing? Only a few weeks ago Adult Swim's Toonami aired the episodes of One Piece where Luffy gets wedged between two buildings and Zoro gets stuck upside down inside a chimney. And then Bandai goes and reveals a series of ga...

 
 
Review: P.O.P. Crocodile photo

Tomopop Review: Portrait of Pirates Crocodile Repaint Ver.

Over the years of my figure collecting, Megahouse's Portrait of Pirates line has remained my favorite series of figures. Based off of characters from the immensely popular One Piece, the figures tend to be excellent representations of guys ...

 
 
 
Review: Akainu/Aokiji photo

Tomopop Review: Figuarts ZERO Akainu & Aokiji Battle Ver.

With dozens and dozens of characters over 17 years of publication, One Piece is a figure company's dream. There are so many characters that can be made into figures, and just as many fans foaming at the mouth to pick them up. What's even be...

POP Sailing Again Bellamy pre-orders spring up

Tomopop LinkUP: March madness

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 afford a bunch of c...

 
 
Figuarts ZERO photo

Tomopop Review: Bandai's Figuarts ZERO Sanji Battle Ver.

One of my critiques with male figures are their boring poses. Like it or not, female figures tend to be posed in a variety of ways to direct attention toward their copious assets. Dudes just kind of stand there, usually with their legs slig...

What's in UFO Catchers? Sonico, schoolgirls, and more

Recently, I had a chance to wander around one of my local arcades and see what prizes were locked up inside the machines. Locked away behind a promise if you get the claw to drop in some precise way, or break the piece of toilet paper separ...

Tomopop Review: Figuarts ZERO Perona & Enel

Bandai has done a lot to improve their Figuarts ZERO line in the last couple of years. Back when I reviewed a trio of ZEROs in 2011, they were fairly simple looking figures of dudes in standard poses with the exception of Marco. Fast-forwar...

Under the Radar: Soul of Chogokin General Franky

All Franky wants is to become the ultimate cyborg/robot. I mean, he sure is a great shipwright and he's one of the best out there. However, let's be honest: his robotic improvements show that he wants to become one with the metal. On that r...

Franky becomes one with machines, is now a model kit

As One Piece has continued, shipwright Franky has steadily been becoming more of a cyborg. By now, he's nearly gone full robot and that is awesome. To top off his increasingly gargantuan proportions and weaponry, he made a giant tank called...

One Piece PC glasses and charms are easy on the eyes
