Give Miku a splash of color with the Tell Your World version

As far as Miku variants go, the "Tell Your World" version isn't terribly radical. In fact it's mostly just a cool splash of paint on the standard Miku design. However the sculpt has a delicacy and sense of motion that really ...

FREEing's Houki Shinonono is pretty foxy

I've not kept up with Infinite Stratos but its cast sure has gotten a lot of figures. I rather like FREEing's 1/4-scale Houki, mostly because of the way her expression works with those fox ears. Very cute indeed. If you want ...

If figma Shimakaze isn't damaged enough for you, try the figFIX version

[Update: Check out Kahotan's preview!] I have the figma Shimakaze, and it's a nice figure. What it lacks, though, is the half-damaged version with strategically torn clothing. If that's something you really need on a figma-is...

Got a Railgun messing up your plans? Pre-order these two ITEMs.

A Certain Scientific Railgun S introduced me to the mercenary team ITEM, and its two most prominent members (Mugino and Frenda) quickly became two of my favorite characters in the show. I was hoping to see some figures m...

SDCC/WonFes Highlight Reel: The Tian Ma edition

Now that we've had a while to unpack the information assault from the Wonder Festival/SDCC tandem (both happened on the same weekend!), the Tomopop crew thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of our personal favorite things from both events. It would take too long to cover everything I want, so it looks like a top 10 list is in order. Read on to see what tickled my fancy!

Bishoujo Juri is up for pre-order now

Juri fans, the time is here! Kotobukiya's Street Fighter Bishoujo gal is up for pre-orders after a few trips around the preview gallery circuit. I don't think that's the correct metaphor for this character but I don't care! I...

Good Smile Company has a Kill la Kill surprise at Fan Expo

Good Smile Company had something sweet to announce coming out of Fan Expo in Toronto: a new figure of Kill la Kill's Satsuki in 1/8-scale! In order to get around the potential spoiler situation, I've written my thoughts after the break. Click on if you're not afraid of spoilers.

Max Factory's Yamato is on board with pre-orders

Here's Max Factory's Yamato, in case you were wondering about Kantai Collection's take on the legendary battleship. I rather like the figure, except for the mismatched socks. My favorite piece would have to be her hair, espec...

Racing Miku 2014 spools up for pre-order

As promised, Good Smile Company's Racing Miku 2014 ver. is now up for pre-order. A few of you guys expressed your approval of the design, and I'm with you. I've also decided that those are turbochargers because they're connec...

Racing Miku got some upgrades for 2014

For those of you keeping track, this would be the fourth Racing Miku design we see this year. I took a look through the history of Racing Miku figures (just scale, not counting prize figures, figmas, etc.) and she has really ...

Expand your fleet with FunnyKnights' Amatsukaze

Actually I don't have anything against KanColle. Just as I'm a fan of Strike Witches, I can't help but to like yet another property featuring moe anthropomorphized versions of military vehicles. However it has been difficult ...

Max Factory's Samurai goes up for pre-order again

I'm guessing quite a few people missed out on Max Factory's Samurai (sometimes called Katanako) the first time if aftermarket prices are any indication. This is a re-color rather than a straight up re-release, but if you stil...
