Tomopop LinkUP: Mass naked figure event

Hello and welcome back to a very busy Tomopop LinkUP! I suppose that title is worthy of a little explanation. You see, back in the heyday of anime fansubs there was a number of speed subbers that were notorious for their nons...

Tomopop LinkUP: Beach movie photo
Tomopop LinkUP: Beach movie
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! I know I've complained at least once already about the winter, but when dealing with subzero temps as often as we have this year I think it warrants some additional complaining. They say the best way to deal with the cold is to think about warm weather, but that's just something people from warm climates say.

Still, the Japanese seem to be pretty content with the warm thoughts; just look at all of the bathing suit-clad figures they've been cranking out this winter! I don't even remember the last time I went to the beach; it's been years. My parents have a pool, at least, but I only used it once last year. Man, I need to get more sun...

Anyway, this week we've got more girls in swimwear, oddball movie toys, and even some hand-knit TV toys. Follow me in to the deep end after the jump!

Tomopop LinkUP: Art is a blast!
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome to the latest installment of Tomopop LinkUP! I hope people enjoyed the special Transformers edition of LinkUP I did last week, but now we're back to our regular routine. There's been a lot of stuff happening as of late with the more creative among us. I like to think I'm creative, but I'm more of an idea person. When it comes to putting paint to plastic or clay to wheel it never looks as good as it does in my head. Some of us have it and some of us just write about the people who have it I guess.

This week we've got not one, but two artist interviews to pass along, as well as some designer stuff and a bunch of photo galleries. Let's get to it after the jump, shall we?

by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to another round of Tomopop LinkUP! December 12 is observed as 'National Ding-A-Ling Day', a day set aside to watch out for crazy people. I couldn't say why, but doesn't that also mean it's a good day to act crazy? I don't see why not! After all there's a very fine line between genius and insanity and it probably takes a good amount of both to make it in the figure world. 

This week we're looking at some brilliantly warped works from a number of designers and customizers as well as a number of great looking ladies along with a few other things.

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: AmiAmi

I have to admit, I thought it was a very ballsy move for AmiAmi to release something as big as Houki and Akatsubaki from Infinite Stratos AND give it a pricetag to match! Well, it seems like they're fairly confident in their ...

Amiami has PayPal issues, payment deadlines extended photo
Amiami has PayPal issues, payment deadlines extended
by Brian Szabelski

It appears Amiami is having issues with receiving PayPal payments as of late, and as such, they've put out a little message letting folks know that they're trying to make sure it's fixed. Likewise, they expect an update sometime after this Monday, Jan. 28, and will be contacting customers to let them know what the news is.

In the meanwhile, they will also be extending payment deadlines for pre-orders affected by the issues, and for how long likely depends on the severity of the issue. Hopefully they can get the issue resolved, but have any of you been affected by this?

[Some NSFW] 2012 Winter Hobby Maker Expo: Amiami

E2 Tsubasu Izumu original figures O-Ri and Yu-Ri

I had never heard of the manufacturer e Jeuness before, nor have I seen artist Tsubasu Izumi's original figure designs O-ri and Yu-ri. I'm glad that I'm seeing them now, however, because they're adorable! With their fancy out...
