Guess it’s about time to do an intro post. I originally found Tomopop by a link a friend sent me, I forget exactly what was linked, but I then started browsing through the site and enjoyed what I found. A site all about figures and toys? I’m in! …well sorta. I lost the link my friend gave me and wasn’t able to remember the site name or find it. As luck had it, I found Tomo again a few months later and bookmarked it. I lurked and decided to go ahead and sign up…seeing as I wanted to enter the Monthly Megapixel contests.
A little about me: I’m 29 (though I don’t act like it, hehee) and I have been teaching elementary aged kids for the past 5 years now. I am temporarily living and teaching in China. I just finished teaching summer school today (!) and am flying back Stateside for vacation on Monday (will be returning to China at the end of August – so sad I won’t be able to play with Support ver Miku until maybe Christmas, or worse, next year). I had ordered S.H. Figuarts Sanji and Nami and can’t wait to get home to play with them (oh yeah, and see my friends and family)! I’ve been collecting figures since I’ve been able to go to conventions and learned how to order stuff online back in college…starting in 2001? give or take a year. When I first started, I was really picky about what I wanted in a figure, like I only collected my absolute favorites (then again, I barely had any money to “waste”). Since holding a stable job and having an income, I have been able to buy more (not that I really need more).

A question before I hit ‘save changes.’ When reading a review, what do you look for? What specifics should be included (i.e name, company)? What pictures do you like to see? I’ve seen reviews made up different ways, and I was curious what everyone thought. read
