Tomopop LinkUP: The Puzzle & Dougrams edition

Nov 21 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
Max Factory has updated their blog with a gallery for their Dougram model kit. It's very impressive looking with just having the canopy frame painted and stickers applied. Have you seen Good Smile Company's new Picktam line of face changing rubber straps? Of course their first series is for Attack of Titan. They're about the size of a Nendoroid Petit and like a Nendoroid all of the parts are interchangeable. Plus they're making bonus expressions as well. Been to the Good Smile Company website recently? It's been completely overhauled and Kahotan has posted a guide to all of its new features and there are a lot! Speaking of the GSC website, they've got a preview up of the upcoming Nendoroid Neptune from Hyperdimension Neptunia. She's being bundled with the seventh volume of the anime DVD and Blu-ray in Japan. She's a full figure that comes with two expressions, a bunch of arms, and a game controller to hold. Now make a figma! Bandai has put up a video for their new Sailor Moon Moon Stick prop replica, or what they're calling a "Proplica". I don't know if the quality is enough that I would call it a prop, but it is shiny. AMINIMAL Studio has started a Kickstarter project called Inkimals which allows users to customize their own 3D printed designer figures. They're still a long ways from their goal so show them some support. I'm really impressed with what 3D printers can do with color these days. Hobby Search Tweeted an updated prototype shot of KanColle's Yukikaze figure from Aoshima. She's looking cute! Hobby Search also Tweeted this pair of super cool Ghibli 3D puzzles from Ensky. I want them! wieselhead posted a great photo review of Kobato Hasekawa from Haganai by Kotobukiya. So cute and love the backdrops! Hevesh5 uploaded this great video of domino tricks. With over 10 million views and counting there's some really cool stuff to see in here. AmiAmi blog has posted a feature on the upcoming IDOLM@STER Umi Kouaska figure from MegaHouse. We got our first good look at her in magazine scans back in September and she's looking even better now. Tentacle Armada did an extensive photo gallery of Meiya Mitsurugi from Muv-Luv Alternative by Kotobukiya. Looks amazing! Argonaut Resins is doing some experiments with metal cold cast Tutz. First up are these great looking aluminum casts with more tests coming soon. GSC's Shinsotsu (New Recruits) blog updated with a neat post showing how Nendoroid package layouts are decided. Here I thought it was just magic. The Animate Osaka Nipponbashi store has an employee that's causing quite the buzz among female customers. Crunchyroll has a post with lots of pictures and videos about Yuya Uchida, a real otaku with a thing for fighting games and older women. He says he works nearly everyday so if you happen to be touring Osaka... Neath Grim has done a review of Max Factory's 25th Anniversary Belldandy and Holy Bell figure from Oh, My Goddess! Those are some really great photos! And that's it for another week. Be sure to come back next week for more small servings of all the things you love.
