Tomopop Video Review: Transforming Thomas the Tank Engine Bootleg
by Andres Cerrato

We've all been to a dollar store and opening mocked the hideous creations coming out of China. A not-so Hello Kitty, Super Cock, the Legion of Best Friends and Sader are among our favorites, but a very special one came to my door.

Yes, it's exactly what you think it is. It's Thomas and Friends, only something horrible seemed to have happened at the factory. He's been converted into a combining robot, a horrible one at that. There was only way to document this horrid piece of lead-coated construction, with a video review. Hit the jump to check out my video review of this hollow piece of childhood.

Art Asylum Boston: scammers extraordinaire?
by Tomopop Staff
While the toy world is usually all fun and games, every once in a while a piece of very serious news floats by. Sadly, today is one of those days, as we have just caught wind of a massive scam going on at the relatively well-known vinyl store Art Asylum Boston. We are not going to link to the store as this is a very serious issue and we'd rather not send them more traffic, but if you are curious it's easy enough to Google them. Hit the jump to see exactly what this company has been up to.view full story + comments
