Uplark has had our attention with their lineup from Gurren Lagann.  September looks to be a big month with their double, and for some lucky people a triple, release of Viral, Nia and Darry.  While we have been track...

Gurren Lagann's Darry being raffled away for buyers of UpLark's other GL figures

We've already seen Uplark's amazing Viral and Nia prototypes. And proceeded to cream ourselves over them. But now, there's a special bonus being thrown in for those who pre-order (within Japan, I'd assume, anyways): They'll h...

You're Gonna Get Loved Tenderly: Uplark's Viral Color Prototype

I've had this complaint for a while with Gurren Lagann.  I love the show, but it'd be nice to see characters other than Yoko and Kamina.  Ever since Eva posted last month about Uplark's (formerly EyeUp) upcoming Vir...

Tomopop Review: Eye Up's Yoko

Several months ago, I preordered two Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann PVC statues from Hobby Link Japan: Eye Up's Kamina and their Yoko. Considering that I hadn't seen anything released from Eye Up prior to my order, I was slightly...

Tomopop Review: Eye Up's Kamina
by Pedro Cortes

So when I woke up this morning, I was told that there was a box waiting for me downstairs.  After staggering down the stairs half asleep, I instantly perked up when I saw that said package was from Hobby Link Japan. I eagerly tore open the packaging and found Eye Up's 1/8th Scale Kamina (of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann fame) waiting within. At this point I knew that it was my job, nay, my DUTY, to take set up my photo studio, take a ton of photos, and generally gush over this amazing statue.

Follow me after the jump to take a picture heavy peek at possibly the best PVC rendition of an anime character on the market.

Aniki on the go: EyeUp announces Gurren Lagann phone straps

EyeUp has a thing for Gurren Lagann, and I can't say I blame them: the remarkable series is easily the most resonant anime I've seen this year. After announcing their Kamina and Yoko figures a few months back, they go in for ...
