MotU photo

MotUC listed in Mattel Shop, currently with free shipping

Matty Collector closed with a whisper rather than a bang late last year (although the final sale -- which I stupidly delayed in ordering until it was too late -- was an explosion of value), taking with it many of our cherished toy lines. Wh...

Shunya Yamashita's Rei Ayanami goes up for pre-order

Wow, it's been a while since I last saw full blown Evangelion scale figure go up for pre-order. This certainly wouldn't count as a traditional Rei figure since the design has been made over by illustrator Shunya Yamashita. When wa...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): misc Garage Kits (Part 2)

Here we are, the final garage kit gallery which, as tradition dictates, is the final miscellaneous gallery.  Well, I don't think anyone expected a figure of the girl with the pearl earring! Still, it's a mighty impressive figure. The M...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Anime Garage Kits (Part 3)

We're reaching the end of our Winter wonder festival coverage and we're wrapping up the coverage of the anime kits with a number of more recent characters. I don't think any of us expected kits from Drifters but here we are with Yoichi and ...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Rhythm game Garage Kits

I thought I'd try something a little different and combine the rhythm game figures into their own gallery so they don't bloat out the other video game kit galleries. So here, you will find the idolm@ster and Vocaloid kits. A part of me want...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): KanColle Garage Kits

Regardless of the resurgence of Fate kits, it's safe to say that the KanColle juggernaut is showing no sign of slowing down. Warspite makes her WF debut this time around (Rule Britannia!!) and, as always, the Abyssal units are super impress...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Fate Garage Kits

Well, a lot of people took it unto themselves to make sure the "year of fate" definitely came to pass. And with Fate/Grand Order, there no shortage of characters to choose as a subject! While I think Granblue Fantasy still edges it out on s...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Anime Garage Kits (Part 2)

One of the best things about the figures seen in the dealer area is that you can find some kits from titles which have been all but forgotten now, particularly from older shows. And you can also find some seriously new characters in the mix...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Misc Garage Kits (Part 1)

And now, we get the the miscellaneous gallery, where I put the original kits, ones I was not able to identify or just simply didn't fit into one of the other galleries. I mean, where DO you put kits of characters from eroge? I do like the d...

Wonder Festival 2017 Winter: Wonderful Hobby Life For You

There were some intriguing Nendoroid and figma announcements at Wonder Festival but the scale figure previews weren't as interesting. Under the Wonderful Hobby Life For You banner, Good Smile Company and associated groups showed off a ton o...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Megahouse

Megahouse seem to be pretty happy to rest on its established lines and not really rocking their boat and I'm sure that's fine for many. Wonder Festival showed us more P.O.P figures and some other figures based on popular Jump manga such as ...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Native

Normally, here at Tomopop, we tend to avoid the 100% NSFW coverage, which I feel is a shame because there are some really REALLY good Ero figures out there which look classy without going too far into the realm of lewd but I digress. As suc...

Just look at the banner! Just look at it!! Bathe in the awesomeness that is the final scene between X and zero in Megaman X! Done enough? Then check out the figure of Yuzuruha who, sadly was a bit too NSFW to get onto the banner. Still a ve...

Wonder Festival 2017 Winter: figma

By my estimates there were about 17 million Nendoroids announced/shown at WonFes. The figma announcements were not as numerous but there were still some juicy ones. Just as with Nendoroids, the figma lineup has diversified outside of the no...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Kotobukiya mecha

Kotobukiya clearly knew that they were sitting on a money pit when they released the first Frame Arms: Girl since they seem to be pushing more of them out at the expense of the others, including the original Frame Arms line, though the shor...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Kotobukiya Figures

Kotobukiya were the first company to have a proper focus on the western markets and took steps to license western titles for their figures and so they have an interesting mix of figures from anime and also western movies and shows. On the J...

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Volks

Hey, you got Crayola in my Kidrobot!
