[Updated] Take aim at this new SAO Sinon Nendoroid gallery

[Update: Hey, look, pre-orders are up. Find them down below.] Coming into the Sword Art Online 2 anime I wasn't really sure what to expect from series newcomer Sinon. The early previews made her look like the cold, emotionles...

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.

Tomopop LinkUP: Remakeover

Sometimes our favorite characters are too good to fall off into obscurity over the years. Often they'll get a new outfit and and just continue their adventures like Sideshow's upcoming 1/6 scale Catwoman. Sometimes they trans...

Nendoroid May'n redefines concert loot photo
Nendoroid May'n redefines concert loot
by Tianxiao Ma

When I go to a concert, usually all I come back with is a useless ticket stub and half a cup of low-quality beer that's been spilled on me - if I'm lucky. If I'm not lucky, a lot of beer has been spilled on me. Wouldn't it be nice if I could leave a concert with a Nendoroid, though?

May'n fans have such an opportunity as Good Smile Company will be selling a special Nendoroid version of the pop star. It'll be sold at concert venues along her 10th anniversary tour, making it an actually memorable piece of memorabilia. Kahotan's blog has the preview, showing off May'n's trademark accessories and some really cool box liner art. This is yet another reason to love Japan.

Nendoroid Nagisa Momoe something something magical girl photo
Nendoroid Nagisa Momoe something something magical girl
by Tianxiao Ma

This Nendoroid was announced a while back for the latest Madoka Magica film. Although the film came out last October, the spoiler situation can be tricky with anime movies so I'll keep this post intentionally vague.

Nagisa Momoe is from Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion. In it she's a character who does things. The Nendoroid version also comes with things, which you can use to recreate scenes in which she did the stuff. Spoiler: she has a block of cheese. Whew, that was tough. For those of you who don't care about potential spoilers (or maybe they're non-spoilers, who knows?), you can check out Kahotan's adorable preview.

Nendoroid Nagisa will be out in June, which may or may not be an important date. The MSRP is ¥3,889 but the story significance of this price is unconfirmed. You can pre-order her now... or can you?!

Tomopop LinkUP: From viewers like you photo
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!

Tomopop LinkUP: Gold Medal Panic photo
Tomopop LinkUP: Gold Medal Panic
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's been a pretty busy week in all sorts of ways. We're still plowing our way through Wonder Festival coverage with the shadow of Toy Fair looming over us. But outside of that the Olympics are in full swing once again and Valentine's Day is tomorrow, probably the two best events for precious metals. Man, why is the shortest month of the year also the busiest?

This week we've got more galleries, customs, LEGO pieces, and plushies. Follow me after the jump to see it all! Incidentally, I've tried to watch Full Metal Panic twice and still haven't finished the first season...
