Hug gaming history with COSPA's Megadrive plush

At the end of Wreck-It Ralph, "retro" was defined as "old but cool." In the case of COSPA's new Megadrive plush, I would substitute "cool" with "absolutely, freaking adorable." I mean, look at this thing! It's arms are contro...

Okay, I might not be one for social games, like Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls, but I know a cute plush when I see one, and Anzu's stuffed rabbit certainly fits the bill. Let me tell you, one doesn't have to know the source material inside and out to appreciate a good toy (as I am sure many of you know). Read on to see what makes this plush a winner!

COSPA's graphig++ line gets a taste of Fate/Zero

COSPA's new Graphig++ line isn't a bigger, better way to do papercraft: it takes those Graphig characters and turns them into bite-sized PVC figures. The latest batch of Graphigs to get this treatment come from Fate/Zero, fea...

Tomopop Review: Cospa's Graphig Chie
by Brian Szabelski

If I told you that I liked Persona 4, you'd probably say something like, "Yeah, and water is wet. We know." I don't really tend to hide my fandom of both the game and anime series very much, but you may not know that I'm also a fan of papercraft. A big part of my original collectibles collection was indeed papercraft designs I'd printed out, and while I've put some of them into storage since they're fragile, Cospa's Graphig line caught my attention. In part, that was due to the low price and the number of characters being offered.

So, when given the chance to review a Graphig, I jumped at it, being naturally curious as to how they worked. Chie is my first foray into the Graphig line, but is it one I'm really going to remember fondly?
