S.H. Figuarts Naruto starts a hurricane of pre-orders

Bandai has quietly started taking pre-orders on their upcoming Naruto Uzumaki figure from Naruto Shippuden. I say quietly because the figure hasn't gotten much in the way of fanfare since it made a surprise debut at New York ...

Tomopop LinkUP: Mass naked figure event photo
Tomopop LinkUP: Mass naked figure event
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to a very busy Tomopop LinkUP! I suppose that title is worthy of a little explanation. You see, back in the heyday of anime fansubs there was a number of speed subbers that were notorious for their nonsensical translations. In one case a line in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex talking about children being abducted by the mafia was translated as "Are you aware of the frequent occurrences of the mass naked child events within the country?" by a particularly awful fansub group. For a time the phrase "mass naked child events" became a meme referring to terrible translations.

When you think about it, Wonder Festival really is a mass naked figure event. Let's face it, most of the figures we'll be drooling over the pictures of this weekend probably won't be wearing a lot of clothes. And yes, some of them will indeed be naked, or pretty near it, especially if some of the previews in this edition of LinkUP is anything to go by. Plus we've got some other stuff to gawk at like videos, an interview, and various other things all after the jump!
