Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Agito Shining Form

Kamen Rider Agito has had his share of figures. It was one of the notorious early releases in the S.H. Figuarts line, namely due to the fact it only came with the standard figure and two extra hands. Since then, the other for...

Set your GP Base for Gunpla Builders World Cup 2014 photo
Set your GP Base for Gunpla Builders World Cup 2014
by Andres Cerrato

You've built your Gunpla and now you want something to do with it. You've painted, sculpted new parts by hand, added armor by cutting many, many small pieces of plaplate. If you'd like the chance to show off your Gunpla, you can do so at this year's installment of the Gunpla Builders World Cup!

While sadly you won't be able to pilot your perfect Gunpla, only to be beaten by young boy on a quest, you can at least win. The GBWC, like in years past, will feature live competitions at 5 cons this year: Anime Central in Chicago, A-Kon in Dallas, Anime Expo in Los Angeles, Otakon in Baltimore and lastly at New York Comic-Con. If you can't make it out to any of the shows, there will be an online competition. If you are chosen as the Best in Show at any of these 6 competitions, you may be selected as the North American representative for the GBWC, which will of course mean additional prizes and a trip to Japan for the finals.

If you'd like to see the full rules and requirements, check out Bluefin's GBWC page. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I need to get building again.

Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts Power Rangers Ninja Storm Blue and Yellow photo
Tomopop Review: S.H. Figuarts Power Rangers Ninja Storm Blue and Yellow
by Andres Cerrato

I mentioned it last time, but Ninja Storm was the series that got me re-interested in Power Rangers. I really liked the S.H. Figuarts Red Wind Ranger, so I figured that I should probably complete the team with Blue and Yellow. Thankfully, it's rather easy to do since they were released in a two pack. Now that the Wind School has all of its members, have the two new SHFs received their diplomas and are ready for release?

Find out after the jump in today's review!

Tomopop Review: Robot Damashii Wing Gundam photo
Tomopop Review: Robot Damashii Wing Gundam
by Andres Cerrato

I've had a lot of fun with the recent Robot Damashii I've acquired. The Leo Flight Type is the grunt I've always loved, and Deathscythe Hell has become one of my go-to figures. Cut to the latest entry, the Wing Gundam, the first Gundam many of us saw. With the Robot Damashii line wrapping up its focus on Gundam Wing, the titular mecha has finally gotten its release.

Does the Robot Damashii Wing Gundam ignite those lost feelings when we first saw it or is it just another beat in the endless waltz. Find out in today's review after the jump!

S.H. Figuarts Naruto starts a hurricane of pre-orders

Bandai has quietly started taking pre-orders on their upcoming Naruto Uzumaki figure from Naruto Shippuden. I say quietly because the figure hasn't gotten much in the way of fanfare since it made a surprise debut at New York ...

Luckily, you'll have more than seven days to pre-order S.H. Figuarts Sadako from The Ring

Last week Bandai showed us official photos of their S.H. Figuarts Sadako from the Japanese horror, The Ring. It was great because before we had no idea what she was going to come with, so there were just wishes. Still, that ...

Bandai counters rising taxes with larger gashapon canisters

Normally those of us in the west don't feel the effects of Japanese sales taxes. Most stores that export from Japan don't bother to collect Japanese sales taxes which helps to keep their sales up and us buying more. You proba...

This S.H. Figuarts Sadako of The Ring will go through your screen

When it was announced, a lot of us were surprised to see Sadako of The Ring get a release in S.H. Figuarts. Let's be honest here, we didn't really think of the property as something that would be a good translation to toys. H...
