About
Brian Szabelski is Tomopop's Editor-in-Chief, stuck with an ever-growing collection of figures and toys. When he's not posting on Tomopop, he can usually be found working on any number of projects (some of which will be revealed in good time) or hunting down older figures he doesn't own but wants.

Born and raised in Detroit, he currently lives in northwest Ohio. He enjoys a number of things, including taiko drum playing, food, friends, watching movies, food, writing fiction and playing Team Fortress 2. He also longs for the day a Tomopup figure is available ... among two dozen others he'd like.

You can currently follow him on Twitter at @brianszabelski.

SDCC 2014: October Toys

Sure, October Toys' SDCC booth had a new Deadbeet and Cavey vinyl colorway. Sure, it had a lovely purple Calaverita from the Beast Brothers. We also can't overlook the OMFG figures that were available, but none of those were ...   more

[UPDATED] SDCC 2014: Cardboard Spaceship

Sure, we've seen Cardboard Spaceship's Thimblestump Hollow figures, but what about the rest of the booth? It was a small booth, but there were still other pieces on display, including customs from Carson Catlin, DrilOne, Reac...   more

SDCC 2014: Tamashii Nations

So we've gone through and covered Sailor Moon, Tamashii Buddies and Dragon Ball Z ... that can't be all of Tamashii Nations' SDCC offerings, can it? Not in the least, as many of their other licenses got a chance to shine...   more

SDCC 2014: Tamashii Nations - Dragon Ball Z

Tamashii Nations have done a fairly decent job catering to Dragon Ball Z fans with their Figuarts lines, and this year's San Diego Comic Con was no different. Broly pretty much stole the show on the S.H. Figuarts side of...   more

SDCC 2014: Rotofugi

Rotofugi's SDCC booth was lighter on the exclusives this year, but the ones they did have were a little bigger deal. First, there's Tristan Eaton's new Floral Pleasure Bot for Kidrobot, which has a pretty nice design ... but ...   more

SDCC 2014: Kidrobot's Rocket Raccoon Labbit

Without a booth to call their own this year, Kidrobot scattered their releases across San Diego Comic Con. Frank Kozik's booth was home to one of them, the one that Kozik himself actually worked on: a new Rocket Raccoon Labbi...   more
