figma Nagisa Momoe does a lot of things I don't understand

[Update: Added more pre-order links] My total experience with Madoka Magica is pretty much the first episode, so I really have no idea what's going on right now. Clearly this makes me the perfect guy to post about figma ...

Tomopop LinkUP: From viewers like you
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! This week we're doing something entirely different from the normal LinkUP. Last week we took no prisoners when reporting on Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] which doesn't leave much for this week's LinkUP. I'm not about to let a week slip by without something to read so I think it's time to do another special. Given that a big part of LinkUP is pointing out some of the great stuff done by fans I think now is a perfect time to turn the spotlight on all of you out there.

So join me after the jump as we check out some of the reviews, videos, photo galleries, and creative stuff made by fans, for fans!

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...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Giant figma roundup

I'm sure it comes to no one's surprise that there were a lot of new figma on display at Wonder Festival. But could you really predict just how varied the offerings this time around would be? They really dug out some unexpecte...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Nendo and figma Hatsune Miku

Probably the two biggest complaints about the figma and Nendoroid lines are that there are too many Hatsune Miku variants and too many characters in school uniforms. Well look at what we have here, a figma and a Nendoroid of ...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Look at my figma Horse
by Brian Szabelski

Of the many figma we've seen from Wonder Festival so far, but the most interesting might be ... a horse? Yes, there's a figma Horse now, or rather, figma PLUS Horse. The source material is Attack on Titan, but it's safe to say that there are going to be a ton of figures that could make use of it. Why not figma Link as a stand-in for Epona, for one example? The Tomopop staff already hates that I brought that idea up because a lot of them are feeling compelled to buy it ...

So yes, there's a figma-scale horse on the way. What are your plans for it?
