About
Chris is one of the many tomopop writers. While often hibernating (even in the summer), this creature will often arise from his slumber to cover some of the more niche parts of the japanese figure market. Primarily a fan of garage kits, this creature will be more likely to be found covering companies such as Volks and is especially active during Japanese figure events like Wonder Festival.

Its main weakness is a strong disdain for (almost) anything Black Rock Shooter related. Disdain for BRS and apathy for most poseable figure lines... It's two main weaknesses are a strong disdain for (almost) anything Black Rock Shooter related and apathy for most poseable figure lines and a near irrational hatred of things K-ON!... It's three main weaknesses are a strong disdain for (almost) anything Black Rock Shooter related, apathy for most poseable figure lines, a near irrational hatred of things K-ON! and an almost fanatical love for Sheryl Nome... Aww heck!!!

Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Honda Futayo

One thing which has always bemused me is why a show like Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon has not received more figures than it has, given its ridiculously large cast of characters. Early releases focused on Horizon and we've had a ...   more
