We got the teaser just the other day, now we get to see the whole thing! It's fairly rare for Good Smile Company to tackle properties from the west (though that seems to be changing every event), but with recent efforts to gi...

Tomopop LinkUP: Anime you have a happy new year!
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome to the first Tomopop LinkUP of the new year! We're only two days into 2014 and there's already a lot to look forward to in the coming year. Hard to believe, but over at My Figure Collection they've already got over 1,700 figures, models, and similar items listed for this year. That's just insanity! And when the winter events like Wonder Festival start up we're really going to see that number jump. Goes without saying that there'll be no shortage of great things to come.

This week we've got a lot of anime and game figure news to go over along with one good Doctor and a Clone Trooper on a journey!

figma Casca fights her way to a pre-order

Max Factory's figma Casca (Berserk), recently seen in a figma round-up, is currently up for pre-order. While I still haven't seen Berserk (despite having been aware of the anime for over a decade now), I've always had a weakn...

Another Japanese figure show means another crop of figma being put on display by Max Factory. While nothing shown at Miyazawa Model Expo Autumn 2013 was entirely new we are getting an updated look at some figures that we haven't yet seen at this stage. 

One of the upcoming figma I hear a lot of people asking about is Guyver. When we last saw him at Wonder Festival 2013 Winter he looked like a nearly complete and colored figure. But the latest look is an unpainted prototype with some different articulation. In reality the original prototype was probably a reworked Bio Fighter Collection figure also from MF. The updated sculpt is very detail-heavy and looks to be using the figma 2.0 body. 

Another update goes to Casca from Berserk, shown here for the first time in color. The figure looks exceptional and may be worth getting even if you aren't a big Berserk fan. Indiana Jones is also making his first public appearance which is kinda strange when the figure has already gone up for pre-order

Other things of note are the new figmaPLUS display sets featuring street and classroom scenes, Space Adventure Cobra's Golden Boy showing off his golden skeleton, and of course you can't talk about figma right now without mentioning Attack on Titan

Still a lot of stuff left unseen, but I'm sure they're holding the best for the next Wonder Festival 2014 Winter in February.

Reserve or Regret? Import round up for March 12, 2012

Hey folks. Been a while, huh? Maybe too long. Yeah, way too long. It's time to ask that question that happens every time a new pre-order comes up: reserve or regret? This feature takes pre-orders from the day before and throw...

figma Griffith prepares for battle starting in July photo
figma Griffith prepares for battle starting in July
by Brian Szabelski

The latest figma pre-order to hit stores is Berserk's Griffith, long, flowing hair and all! Having just gone up for pre-order this morning, Griffith comes a standard and confident expression, his helmet, a cloth mantle and his sabre. I like the detailing here on the armor and how Max Factory has assembled the figure to allow it to have bulk and poseability.

For ¥3,620, you can call upon Griffith in July with all his ridiculously feminine looks. If you're thinking of doing so, let us know in the comments! Or talk about how you thought this was a girl at first because you never read/watched Berserk.
