From the future, Real Action Heroes Archer shows his stuff

Archer has 'tude. And for good reason; the guy has seen some terrible things. Also done some things of which he's not entirely proud. And this may or may not turn out to be one of those things. The Real Action Heroes line has...

Good Smile Company reveals Winter Wonder Festival exclusives photo
Good Smile Company reveals Winter Wonder Festival exclusives
by Martin Siggers

With Winter WonFes 2015 less than a month away, Good Smile have stepped up to reveal the exclusive goods that they'll be selling at the event, thus saving us the agony of speculation and second guessing that used to characterise the event.

As is always the case at Winter WonFes, Snow Miku headlines the exclusives available, with her fan-designed 'Snow Bell' look available in both Nendoroid and figma forms. We've also got a rather striking Nendoroid of Battleship Re-Class from Kantai Collection and another Saber figma, this time an unarmoured 'Dress ver.'.

As with all WonFes exclusives in recent years these will also be available from the Good Smile Online Shop for a limited period of time. GSC will also take any remaining stock touring round the world on the convention trail, so if the company attends an event near you that might be a smart time to get your hands on this stuff. Online sales will be made to order so as long as you get in between the 8th and 16th of February you'll be guaranteed to get one. The two Snow Mikus will be ¥4,500 apiece while saber and Re-Class will set you back a little more at ¥5,000.

Honestly I'm a little underwhelmed, but then I'm not a huge fan of any of these characters. Any of you readers out there really liking what you're seeing?

Don't wait until the spring to view Sakura Saber

Fate/stay night's Saber has had many faces, but none as Japanese as Sakura Saber. If you're not familiar with Good Smile Company's latest take on Saber (first announced nearly a year ago!) don't feel bad, she comes from a rat...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kotobukiya gallery

It's hard to believe Kotobukiya had so much stuff with them at Wonder Festival considering just how much they brought with them to San Diego Comic Con that same weekend. While they did bring a few things to both conventions, ...

Make Nendoroid Rin Tohsaka part of your fate
by Tianxiao Ma

Saber gets all the attention these days, but Good Smile Company hasn't forgotten about tsundere master Rin Tohsaka of Fate/stay night! She got a gorgeous scale figure way back in the day, but now returns as a diminutive Nendoroid.

Kahotan has put up a preview to herald the pre-order period, which starts now. You can see the variety of poses and effects pieces, but my favorite part is the embarrassed expression.

You can pre-order Rin for ¥3,900. She's set for a July release.

Why is March such a painful month for us? It seems like every march we get bombarded with a  bunch of cool stuff that we all want all at once. Do companies think that we've recovered from the holidays by now and can affo...

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!

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Kotobukiya's Cu-poche photo
Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Kotobukiya's Cu-poche
by Natalie Kipper

Ah yes, the Cu-poche; what some might call Kotobukiya's answer to Good Smile Company's popular Nendoroid line. Whatever your take on the chibi-fied figures, Wonder Festival's Cu-poche display is sure to draw more than a few eyes. A good many of the figures shown had already been released, ( Dark Magician Girl, Haruka AmamiSaber, and Kirino Kousaka, for example), giving the display a feel of a museum exhibit showcasing the lines past and future.

The new prototypes draw from the anime series, Sword Art Online and Chu 2 Byo, along with an extra-special original figure. From Sword Art Online, we see an unpainted Asuna Cu-poche. From the world of Chu 2 Byo, Kotobukiya provided a painted prototype of Rikka Takanashi plus a silhouette teaser image of Sanae Dekomori. Finally, we come to the Scale Bathing Suit Body Cu-Poche. This is Cu-poche doesn't come from any game or anime series; it is just a charming little lady in her swimsuit.

Check out the gallery to see the photos Tomopop's own Kristina Pino snapped for us!
