Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: A little donut-loving Nendoroid vampire

Nendoroid Shinobu has been on my radar for a while, and looks to be a winner. Her more animated, post-Bakemonogatari form is perfect for Nendo-fication (disregarding a certain uncomfortable bathing scene). The version at Miyazawa Model Expo is still unpainted, but she still has that melts-your-heart cuteness. This is one Kahotan preview I'm really looking forward to! [via Hobby Search's Twitter]

Nendoroid Tsubasa Hanekawa up for pre-order

Remember when a preview of Nendoroid Tsubasa Hanekawa popped up on Kahotan's blog? Tian said she'd be up for pre-order "next week" ... and well, it's next week. That means you can grab yourself a little Hanekawa, though you'l...

Nendoroid Tsubasa's big head symbolizes her know-it-all-ness

I would share with you what Kristina thinks about Hanekawa, but we try to keep the language PG-ish around here. In case you don't already know, this is Nendoroid Tsubasa Hanekawa, the ever-helpful class representative from th...

Sink your teeth into these Nendoroid Shinobu scans

She popped up briefly at Wonder Festival, but these scans give us our first close look at the next entry in the ever growing Monogatari line of Nendoroids. This time it'll be the loli (looking) vampire Shinobu Oshino who...

Tomopop LinkUP: From viewers like you
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! This week we're doing something entirely different from the normal LinkUP. Last week we took no prisoners when reporting on Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] which doesn't leave much for this week's LinkUP. I'm not about to let a week slip by without something to read so I think it's time to do another special. Given that a big part of LinkUP is pointing out some of the great stuff done by fans I think now is a perfect time to turn the spotlight on all of you out there.

So join me after the jump as we check out some of the reviews, videos, photo galleries, and creative stuff made by fans, for fans!

by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's been a pretty busy week in all sorts of ways. We're still plowing our way through Wonder Festival coverage with the shadow of Toy Fair looming over us. But outside of that the Olympics are in full swing once again and Valentine's Day is tomorrow, probably the two best events for precious metals. Man, why is the shortest month of the year also the busiest?

This week we've got more galleries, customs, LEGO pieces, and plushies. Follow me after the jump to see it all! Incidentally, I've tried to watch Full Metal Panic twice and still haven't finished the first season...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Kotobukiya scale figures

We've already seen some of the new hotness that Kotobukiya brought to WonFes, but there's always room for more. Their scale figure lineup looks pretty diverse this year, which is great if you're sick of KanColle. Here's the r...

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!
