Check out a new smiling Saber from Wing, now up for pre-order. She is the "Last Episode" version from Fate/Stay Night [Realta Nua], the PSVita port of the PS2 version of the original game. Whew. So, basically one of the "good...

Tomopop LinkUP: Walking in a winter Wonder Festival

Jan 30 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
7-Eleven in Japan (yep, that's a thing) is now base to its own Gundam. A special version of the RX-93 Nu Gundam HG Gunpla is now calling the convenience store chain home. Done up in green, white, red, and yellow the kit is only running for ¥2,625. ToysREvil posted these really cool throw pillows based on game handhelds and controllers by Castella Natalia. Love the cartoonish look to them. Studio Ghibli fan Nendojin went above and beyond simple fan art to make a sculpture of the man himself: Hayao Miyazaki. RocketNews24 has posted video of the piece being made from start to finish. Job well done! Wave previewed a pair of girls from Majestic Prince being added to the Beach Queens line. Not Wave's best work and even they don't seem enthusiastic about them considering they haven't delivered their promised additional info on the girls despite being available for pre-order now. I guess they can't all be winners. And this is what it looks like when Wave tries hard. Akiba Hobby has posted a photo review for the upcoming Beach Queens Illyasviel von Einzbern from Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA. The effort they put into a figure this cute speaks for itself. In case you missed it the three figures from Hunter X Hunter are now available again for re-release. While there's nothing particularly new about them the official figma blog has posted the trio together. The real attraction is a quick three-panel comic. Check out CLayz newest Kuroneko figure from OreImo featuring a school swimsuit with cat years and tail. Oh man, she's perfect! Akiba Hobby posted a preview of Kotobukiya's Wonder Festival exclusive Kobato figure from Haganai. This is a red-dressed repaint of the figure Koto released just this past October. Looking good. Piapro posted a gallery for the upcoming Snow Miku 2014 Licca-chan doll. I kinda don't want to admit that it's growing on me... Also coming to Wonder Festival is a repaint of Orchid Seed's many Super Sonico figures. Based on a figure only just released back in December she is now sporting a chrome silver bikini. Not my kind of thing, but she does look really well made. Dark Horse has licensed the figure rights to the Powers series of comics and graphic novels. Their first piece is the impressively big Retro Girl statue which will later be followed by vinyl figures. More info can be found at the link. Kahotan posted a great gallery for Nendoroid Yoshino from Date A Live. Stiff contender for one of the cutest Nendoroids of all time! Tokidoki is collaborating Pullip on new doll Lunarosa. She's completely clad in Tokidoki fashion and even comes with a Donutella plush. She even gets her own tattoos! No price was given, but she'll be out in February. Sonico hasn't always been her full-figured self. Even she was a kid once. That's the message that Wing is sending with the prototype of their new child version of Nitro+'s digital diva. It actually is a rather cute figure in a much different way than we're used to seeing Sonico. Plum has made a new mini figure for their original character Sarah. She comes in two versions, either red or green. Both are exclusives, starting with sales at Wonder Festival for only ¥600 each. After that the red version will be sold throughout Nagano prefecture while the green one will be sold at the Lake Suwa SA (service area) for ¥700 each. Customizer Jared Flores created this really amazing Vinylmation version of the classic and iconic Dumbo ride found at Disney parks. The piece uses four Vinylmation Dumbo figures and one three-foot Vinylmation figure. Nicely done! That's all for this week! Come back next week when I'm sure we'll have another pile of Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] previews to look at among other great things.

Tomopop LinkUP: The Girls und Painter edition

Dec 12 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
Wooser is almost here again! Season two returns in January so that means a big product push for all things Wooser. Kahotan has posted this Belle Maison oshiruko soup set that features rubber straps of mascot Shirukuma and Wooser. They also have a pair of Wooser talking pens. Wing gave a very cryptic hint for one of their next figures. The hint is just an offset black and white image of a fleur-de-lis. They'll be doing their official reveal at Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] in February. Disney has posted on their Insider blog a look at the creation of their Infinity game figures from sketch to final product. The post talks pretty extensively with Art Director Jeff Bunker and Lead Character Designer Jon Diesta of Avalanche Software and their roles in making the game and figures a reality. Chauskoskis appears to be in a Greasebat kind of mood as he's made two of them. Based on Jeff Lamm's characters the first is Dunny baby Greasebat that he has Jeff's OK to make a few resin castings of. The other is an evil Greasebat that is only one of a kind that he put up for auction.  Check out this amazing Iron Samurai kitbash bade by Ken Lee. Reminds me of one of those samurai from Sucker Punch. I thought that movie was kinda awful, but this is very cool! It's 1/6 scale and a nominee for the 3A Customs and Kitbashes 2013 Awards. Good luck! No, I didn't embed an ad into LinkUP. Well, I mean I did, but not for advertising purposes. Matt Hopkins of Custom Papertoys sent along this really cool commercial he worked on for the SPCA. You think stuff like this is done with CG, but it's really stop motion. Matt says he built the models and much of the stop motion.  Tenacious Toys is offering Nerviswrek's Nibirian Drone resin figures by We Are Not Toys. The terrifying little things are hand painted and sold in set of 12 for US$350. Reflective Boundary did a great gallery for Alter's 1/8 Chitanda Eru from Hyouka. I'm glad this show is still getting some great figures, it gives me hope that a second season could be on the horizon! The AmiAmi blog posted a review for the latest Vocaloid GUMI figure. The Megpoid Whisper version made by Aquamarine is in a cute outfit and the bright colors fit her perfectly. She'll be out in February. VISEone displayed six new 16 inch Qee customs at a charity event in Germany recently. His work was a big hit and he even sold one right at the event with all proceeds going to the charity.  Funko is showing off a new series of Uglydoll x DC Comics vinyl figures. Featured are Ice-Bat as Batman, Wedgehead as Robin, and Babo as Superman. They'll be out on February 11.  Ron English has a special Metallic Purple Heart Skull in his PoPaganda store just in time for Christmas gift giving. They're going for US$150 and limited to only 20.  If you've ever wanted to try your hand at building Gunpla with no idea where to start then check out this handy ebook. Mecha Model Guide for Beginners looks to be a very comprehensive guide judging from its preview were it goes deep into all sorts of terminology and even deciphers the little symbols found in the instructions. There's even modeling history in there which could make it a good read even for advanced modelers. The ever-manly Black Star from Soul Eater has gotten the HQS treatment from Tsume with this fantastic looking statue. He's only limited to 250 printed on a metal serial plate and priced at 259€ (about US$356).  Akiba Hobby has posted a review (in Japanese) of Wave's new Beach Queens Chiho from The Devil is a Part-Timer! She'll be out in 2014. Hopefully if she sells really well they'll make a second season of the anime! Tentacle Armada posted a lengthy review of Pop Culture Shock's Katana statue from Mortal Kombat. They've got an awful lot to say about this enormous figure and it sounds like it isn't without its fair share of problems.  And that brings us to the end of another Tomopop LinkUP. See you next week where we'll have another batch of great things to talk about.
