Tomopop LinkUP: Gold Medal Panic
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

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 full swing once again and Valentine's Day is tomorrow, probably the two best events for precious metals. Man, why is the shortest month of the year also the busiest?

This week we've got more galleries, customs, LEGO pieces, and plushies. Follow me after the jump to see it all! Incidentally, I've tried to watch Full Metal Panic twice and still haven't finished the first season...

Kotobukiya's Fairy Dance Asuna is unbarred for pre-orders

Kotobukiya unveiled their second take on Asuna back in January, and we got to see her in all her painted glory at Wonder Festival this past week. Proving the company doesn't hang around, she's now up for pre-order, completing...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Kotobukiya's Cu-poche
by Natalie Kipper

Ah yes, the Cu-poche; what some might call Kotobukiya's answer to Good Smile Company's popular Nendoroid line. Whatever your take on the chibi-fied figures, Wonder Festival's Cu-poche display is sure to draw more than a few eyes. A good many of the figures shown had already been released, ( Dark Magician Girl, Haruka AmamiSaber, and Kirino Kousaka, for example), giving the display a feel of a museum exhibit showcasing the lines past and future.

The new prototypes draw from the anime series, Sword Art Online and Chu 2 Byo, along with an extra-special original figure. From Sword Art Online, we see an unpainted Asuna Cu-poche. From the world of Chu 2 Byo, Kotobukiya provided a painted prototype of Rikka Takanashi plus a silhouette teaser image of Sanae Dekomori. Finally, we come to the Scale Bathing Suit Body Cu-Poche. This is Cu-poche doesn't come from any game or anime series; it is just a charming little lady in her swimsuit.

Check out the gallery to see the photos Tomopop's own Kristina Pino snapped for us!

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Kotobukiya scale figures

We've already seen some of the new hotness that Kotobukiya brought to WonFes, but there's always room for more. Their scale figure lineup looks pretty diverse this year, which is great if you're sick of KanColle. Here's the r...

Kotobukiya's Leafa will brighten up your day photo
Kotobukiya's Leafa will brighten up your day
by Tianxiao Ma

Kotobukiya's Leafa is still a ways away from release, but you can check out some lovely shots from Amiami on their blog. Her facial expression is my favorite part of this figure, although I'm sure many will like her pose. It offers a convenient view of her butt and cleavage, after all.

I haven't seen Sword Art Online so I'm not much of a Leafa fan. But I do think this figure is better than the rather boring one by Griffon. If you want to reserve this Leafa, you still can - just check out our pre-order post for links.

Pre-order this not-so-subtle Suguha for your inner siscon

As Sword Art Online's second arc rolled around, fans realized even this dramatic fantasy/sci-fi series wasn't free from the recent resurgence of anime featuring sisters with a bit more than familial intentions. Enter Suguha K...

Pre-order FREEings Silica from Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online is a pretty popular franchise, so it is not surprising to me when a company makes a figurine of Asuna, or even Leafa, however when a collectible is made of a supporting character like Silica by a larger compa...
