WonFes Alphamax photo

Wonder Festival 2016 Winter: Alphamax

Alphamax is usually all about girls with clothes falling off their bodies. Well they took it to a literal extent this WonFes with some of the figures from their SkyTube label. I won't focus on the NSFW stuff but Amiami and Dengeki Hobb...

Super Sonico goes under the sea

There have been some really interesting Sonico figures in the mix, including a few fairytale themed versions, but nothing quite like this! The curvy musician has been transformed into an adorable mermaid, although still retaining her tradem...

NYCC 2014: Good Smile Company

We got the teaser just the other day, now we get to see the whole thing! It's fairly rare for Good Smile Company to tackle properties from the west (though that seems to be changing every event), but with recent efforts to give Teenage Muta...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: FREEing

FREEing definitely know a good thing when they see it, as their booth was packed with their popular range of yukata-clad ladies. It seems like paired sets are the new hotness in FREEing's world. For me the highlight here is definitely the a...

Nendoroid Sonico photo

Get to work on these Nendoroid Sonico pre-orders

Sonico has never been my favorite character for figures, but I've liked what Good Smile Company has done with her. At least the Tiger Parka Nendoroid version (which is getting re-released) was legitimately very cute. It also happens to be t...

Vertex Super Pochaco photo

I have no idea what's going on with Vertex's Super Pochaco

There's a lot to unpack here so let me just run down the list of items. Why is Pochaco's head so tiny? Why does she have a cowboy hat that's fitted for cats? How is it staying on her head? Why is she trying to take off her vest and her shor...

Super Sonico photo

Super Sonico looks out of place in a school swimsuit

Beat have just put two versions of a school swimsuit-clad Sonico up for pre-order, and I have mixed feelings on the whole thing. Though I love her pose and almost everything else about the figure in terms of sculpt and design, I feel like w...

Griffon - Nanoricchi photo

Treasure Festa in Ariake 11: Griffon - Nanoricchi gallery

Griffon Enterprises' Nanoricchi line is fairly new but the chibi figures were still a major presence at Japan's Treasure Festa in Ariake 11. The majority of the figures were revealed back at Wonder Festival 2014 Winter but there were still ...

Tomopop LinkUP: Gold Medal Panic

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's been a pretty busy week in all sorts of ways. We're still plowing our way through Wonder Festival coverage with the shadow of Toy Fair looming over us. But outside of that the Olympics are in f...

Tomopop LinkUP: Walking in a winter Wonder Festival

Hello and welcome back to an action packed Tomopop LinkUP. Packed is definitely the right word for this edition as we're looking at probably our biggest LinkUP yet! And no wonder, it's the winter convention season! UK Toy Fair was last week...

Tomopop LinkUP: Beach movie

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! I know I've complained at least once already about the winter, but when dealing with subzero temps as often as we have this year I think it warrants some additional complaining. They say the best wa...

Wing Sonico photo

Wing's mousey Sonico hits pre-orders

This Sonico fad refuses to do the decent thing and die, like Black Rock Shooter, Kanu Unchou, and Yoko Littner before it. I guess I like the giant block of cheese that this one comes with. Cheese is yummy, right? Sorry if that's not exactly...

Arcadia's C:MO Sonico photo

Arcadia's Sonico figure is sea-worthy

Arcadia's C:MO line is expanding out from the Evangelion universe, and the first non-Eva figure is their C:MO Sonico ... who looks ready for the sea. Wearing a little sailor outfit that only someone like Sonico could pull off, she's al...

Tomopop LinkUP: The rated A-plush edition

Hello and Welcome to this week's Tomopop LinkUP! It's been a crazy, exhausting week for me. Between a three-day ice storm, a 17 hour power outage, and rushing through Christmas, it has all left me a little drained. But the news doesn't stop...

Wing's Mouse Sonico photo

Say cheese for new photos of Wing's Mouse Sonico

Well, no surprise here: Tsuji Santa has some new photos of an upcoming Sonico figure on Twitter. Wing's Mouse Sonico is about what you'd expect and is a bit cheesy. Literally, not figuratively, though; Sonico is resting on a big block of ch...

UFO Catchers photo

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...

Super Sonico photo

[Sorta NSFW] Alter previews its Santa Sonico

Late last month we caught a quick glimpse of Alter's Santa Sonico, but we really didn't get many good photos showing off the details of her sculpt. Alter apparently sought to remedy this issue and posted a nice splash of pretty photos on th...

Beach Queens Sonico photo

Super Sonico joins the Beach Queens series

I'm actually really surprised that it took Wave this long to make a Beach Queens figure out of Super Sonico, but here we are. The figure was recently shown off by T_Santa, her proud illustrator, and she's currently unpainted. I'm enjoying t...

Alter Sonico photo

Alter's Santa Sonico is poorly equipped for winter travel

Sonico figures have become pretty formulaic: a vaguely vulnerable expression, swimsuit, and gigantic boobs. That describes the gamut of Sonico figures, except outfits vary by fetish. Alter's rendition of Sonico popped up on Twitter recently...

Super Sonico Cheer Girl photo

It's almost game time for Super Sonico Cheer Girl

Orchid Seed have been rather quiet about their lovely Cheer Girl version of Sonico (last seen at WF), and it looks like they're almost ready to let her go now. In a recent blog update, the team also mentions that she'll have optional wrist ...

Banpresto's Sonico photo

Banpresto's Sonico actually looks really good

Sonico artist Tsuji Santa has posted a few photos on his Twitter showing off the Banpresto SQ Sonico figure. It's only a few shots of her, but for a Banpresto figure and a Sonico figure in general, she looks very good and pretty tame. I esp...

WonFes Broccoli photo

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Broccoli

Sonico has been all over this Summer's Wonder Festival, it seems. She was also spotted at Broccoli's booth, in the form of her new figure, Super Sonico - Teeth Brushing Version. The character looks a tad like she just rolled out of bed (pro...

WonFes Wing photo

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Wing

Wing got on my radar with their Shunya Yamashita-designed Fiona figure from Border Break. She turned up at WonFes alongside a handful of newer designs. The rest of their figures were in prototype stage. Sword Art Online's Leafa was there sw...

WonFes Gift photo

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Gift

Gift's display featured a summer theme, showing several girls enjoying a beach outing in their swimsuits. They had an unpainted Houki Shinonono from Infinite Stratos, who doesn't look terribly pleased to be there. The three girls from Nanoh...

WF2013S: Super Sonico photo

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Super Sonico Edition

Oh Sonico, you are the Barbie of Nitro+. Wear all of the outfits you can! You've dressed up on many occassions before, but now you're ready to graduate! You've got your motarboard on because you've risen to the ranks of academia and intelle...

Super Sonico photo

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Banpresto Super Sonico

Super Sonico continues to prove her popularity is anything but short lived with even more offerings coming our way through Banpresto. Starting with three mini figures I was actually surprised to learn that there are actually other char...


Gift's Tiger Parka Sonico is painted

Gift's cute new Sonico figure, sporting a tiger parka and lugging a guitar case, has been revealed with paint splashed on by t_santa on TwitPic.  We've only got two images for now, but she's looking rad. She's also looking rather shiny...

Cheer Girl Sonico photo

Orchid Seed's Cheer Girl Sonico looks pretty big

Orchid Seed has recently posted an update on their blog about their Super Sonico Cheer Girl figure, and boy, she looks bigger than I thought. Already 1/6-scale, one of the photos features her posed next to a 1/8-scale Bondage ver. Sonico, w...

Megahobby Expo: Amakuni photo

Megahobby Expo 2013 Spring: Amakuni

Among the many companies to set up booths at Megahobby Expo, the newest might be Amakuni. Tied closely with Hobby Japan, Amakuni has made a few exclusive figures for the hobby magazine so far, but three prototypes were also on display at Me...


1/2-scale Sonico is up for pre-order with warning labels

Alright, so we had a peek at 1/2-scale Sonico not long ago, and I'm back again to let everyone know the very important news that she is up for pre-order! If you're ready to fork out the dough (over ¥40,000 retail) for her, this huge sta...


ACen 2013: Max Factory's figma

At Anime Central, Max Factory's figma line had a great selection of their current and upcoming figures. Among them, there were figures from Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Cobra, and Kid Icarus. Also in attendance were the very popular Link and...


1/2-scale Soniko gets a coat of paint

Though I don't have as many words to say on things like this as some of my co-editors around here, I wanted to make sure that you folks were at least up to date with the fact that yes, 1/2-scale Soniko still exists (last seen at Wonder Fest...


[NSFW] Miyazawa Model Expo 31: Orchid Seed

Orchid Seed clearly caters to a certain type of audience, in case you couldn't tell by their showings at the Miyazawa Model Expo. These figures are certainly not for the prudish. They showed off not one but two new Sonico figures: a painted...


figma Super Sonico gets a moment in the spotlight

The latest preview on the Max Factory figma blog is none other than figma Super Sonico! The Tiger Parka version of Sonico is releasing this month, so as a fresh reminder of just what she comes with, you'll get her with an optional hood part...


Gift trots out a new Sonico for WonFes

You know what's rare? A Sonico figure where she's just getting on with her life, doing Sonico things. That's basically what Gift's newest Sonico is all about. Their last Sonico figure had her tied up to a bed with legs spread, so I'll say t...


Aquarion Evol, Hyakka Ryouran, and more in scans

We've got the rest of this month's magazine scans - that eternal wellspring of anime/PVC news - and there's a bit of old and new all mixed in. MegaHouse's 1/8-scale Yunoha Thrul from Aquarion Evol, now painted. She's shown with two express...


Max Factory's figma Super Sonico is almost ready to rock

I've slowly become a fan of Nitroplus' busty virtual idol and mascot, Super Sonico because I find her to have a rounder body when compared to other figures but her releases have been, well, mostly on the NSFW side of things or more gravure ...


[NSFW] Miyazawa Model Exhibition: Orchid Seed

If you ever wonder what Orchid Seed's focus is at for figure releases, then taking a look at what they have on display at the Miyazawa Model Exhibition will answer your question. The company had three prototypes on display, two of which is ...
