[NSFW] Check out Wing's Muramasa because sexy demons are the best

Muramasa Sansei hails from the visual novel Full Metal Daemon: Muramasa and has actually gotten a figure treatment before from Max Factory. This dark-skinned beauty must have turned a few heads because Wing is now making...

UPDATE: Wing's Rock 'n' Roll Valentine Sonico is a sweet treat photo
UPDATE: Wing's Rock 'n' Roll Valentine Sonico is a sweet treat
by Brian Szabelski

Wing has posted some more photos of their upcoming Rock 'n' Roll Valentine Sonico figure, featuring everyone's favorite pink-haired rock 'n' roller with a chocolate guitar and a tiny swimsuit. It's based on an illustration, and I don't know how well chocolate works as a guitar base, but I do like how they've got a lively pose for Sonico and the guitar is melting a little bit.

In previous photos, Sonico was missing one thing from her illustration: the melted chocolate drips on her from the chocolate guitar, but fear not! You're getting those in the form of plastic-like decals that you'll be able to attach to her. One MyFigureCollection user even mentioned the idea as a possibility.

Pre-orders for the Rock 'n' Roll Valentine Sonico start on Thursday, March 13, or in other words, later tonight. [UPDATE: Pre-orders are open now!] Any Tomopop readers thinking of picking her up?

Good Smile's here to drop some more delays

By now the regular Good Smile Company delay post is a warm familiar friend. OK, that's a lie. It's still a crushing disappointment, but at least Good Smile is prompt and consistent about notifying us when our eagerly awaited ...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Wing

If you're able to find a spot of Wonder Festival coverage which isn't KanColle related, well done! There's a danger that a lot some great figures might be missed under the avalanche of battleship girls, like Millia Rage from ...

Tomopop LinkUP: Walking in a winter Wonder Festival
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

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 though it was kind of a meh event. In just over a week we've got the first Wonder Festival of the year on February 9 followed by New York Toy Fair launching the following weekend on Feb 16 to 19. I'm sure there's like a dozen more before spring.

And thanks to all of these big toy shows there has been an email tidal wave in our inbox, far more than we've been able to post and there's still more coming in every day. And this is just the stuff leftover from last week! Crazy stuff and there's still tons more coming in every day. It isn't all stuff being prepared for the big events; we've also got some great custom and designer stuff that I'm actually a little sad we haven't had time to post because it's so good! See it all after the jump!

Pre-orders for Wing's Purple Heart come online

Wing's take on Hyperdimension Neptunia's Purple Heart has hit the pre-order scene. She definitely lives up to her name, being a very purple-and-black character, and she lives up to Wing's reputation of producing well-detailed...

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 tha...

Good Smile unleashes a torrent of further delays

We should have known it was too good to be true. When Good Smile Company announced a very slim roster of delays just a few days ago, it looked like the company was on track for a remarkably punctual December. Turns out not so...

Tomopop LinkUP: The Girls und Painter edition
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to another round of Tomopop LinkUP! December 12 is observed as 'National Ding-A-Ling Day', a day set aside to watch out for crazy people. I couldn't say why, but doesn't that also mean it's a good day to act crazy? I don't see why not! After all there's a very fine line between genius and insanity and it probably takes a good amount of both to make it in the figure world. 

This week we're looking at some brilliantly warped works from a number of designers and customizers as well as a number of great looking ladies along with a few other things.

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 ...

Good Smile Company announce more October delays

It seems that last week's delay announcement was just too good to be true, because Good Smile Company have come through with a solid list of delayed figures, some of which have already been bumped from previous months. Expect...

New prototype of Leafa by Wing sighted. She has Wings! photo
New prototype of Leafa by Wing sighted. She has Wings!
by Jon Wills

Word must have gotten around that people were yawning at Griffon's attempt at Leafa because Wing's latest unpainted prototype of manages to address at least a few of the issues that were present in the Griffon version.

First of all and most importantly she now has wings and a somewhat more interesting flying pose. No, she is no Alter's Strike Witch but I have to admire how Wing's pose manages to flatter her figure, particularly her ample bosom while reinforcing the idea that this buxy lady is a fairy.

The pictures are still kind of low quality but I think that this is more in the vein of how a Leafa figure ought to be crafted. Yes, she could be a little bit more action oriented but really I don't mind. I like seeing this friendly, waving side of her. I want to see more on the paint job and final tweaks before I make a judgment but from the prototypes I can give this figure a thumbs up.
