Two loli vampires are ready to emerge from your shadow

Shinobu, formerly a notable omission from the Monogatari series figma line, will soon get her moment in the sun. The really-old-but-looking-young vampire is getting to releases from Max Factory: the standard figma and a figFI...

figFIX Shimakaze is up for pre-order, but if you wanted to ogle her midriff some more, Max Factory's figma blog has another preview for you. My theory about this is that since the figma didn't come with the half-damage body (because that would be like giving you two figmas for the price of one!), Max Factory decided to create this figFIX line. That theory's almost certainly incorrect but it's fun to pretend.

Anyway, there isn't anything you haven't already seen here, which is a phrase that often gets uttered when something perverted happens. I'm just a huge fan of the little damaged Rensouhou-chans. They're so cute!

Here's Aquamarine's Koki Yamoto in full color photo

Koki Yamoto hails from the Japanese novel series Ninja Slayer. And, well, she certainly looks like a slaying kind of person. I don't really have much to go on because of the rather plain design, so I'll just go ahead and write some generic comments.

Wow her skirt is short! It must be cold for her at night. That's a sweet translucent scarf thing. Her sword is pretty awesome, probably! It would be nice to see a few ninjas, or at least some slaying with this figure, but I guess that's just not in the cards.

Give Miku a splash of color with the Tell Your World version

As far as Miku variants go, the "Tell Your World" version isn't terribly radical. In fact it's mostly just a cool splash of paint on the standard Miku design. However the sculpt has a delicacy and sense of motion that really ...

FREEing's Houki Shinonono is pretty foxy

I've not kept up with Infinite Stratos but its cast sure has gotten a lot of figures. I rather like FREEing's 1/4-scale Houki, mostly because of the way her expression works with those fox ears. Very cute indeed. If you want ...

If figma Shimakaze isn't damaged enough for you, try the figFIX version

[Update: Check out Kahotan's preview!] I have the figma Shimakaze, and it's a nice figure. What it lacks, though, is the half-damaged version with strategically torn clothing. If that's something you really need on a figma-is...

Got a Railgun messing up your plans? Pre-order these two ITEMs.

A Certain Scientific Railgun S introduced me to the mercenary team ITEM, and its two most prominent members (Mugino and Frenda) quickly became two of my favorite characters in the show. I was hoping to see some figures m...

Now that we've had a while to unpack the information assault from the Wonder Festival/SDCC tandem (both happened on the same weekend!), the Tomopop crew thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of our personal favorite things from both events.

It would take too long to cover everything I want, so it looks like a top 10 list is in order. Read on to see what tickled my fancy!

Bishoujo Juri is up for pre-order now

Juri fans, the time is here! Kotobukiya's Street Fighter Bishoujo gal is up for pre-orders after a few trips around the preview gallery circuit. I don't think that's the correct metaphor for this character but I don't care! I...

Good Smile Company has a Kill la Kill surprise at Fan Expo

Good Smile Company had something sweet to announce coming out of Fan Expo in Toronto: a new figure of Kill la Kill's Satsuki in 1/8-scale! In order to get around the potential spoiler situation, I've written my thoughts after the break. Click on if you're not afraid of spoilers.

Fire all your cannons with Yamato Heavy Armament ver.

Kahotan's already previewed Max Factory's Yamato Light Armament ver. figure, so it goes without saying that the Yamato Heavy Armament ver. would get a preview, too! The 1/8-scale Heavy Armament ver. is part of the Wonder...

Max Factory's Yamato is on board with pre-orders

Here's Max Factory's Yamato, in case you were wondering about Kantai Collection's take on the legendary battleship. I rather like the figure, except for the mismatched socks. My favorite piece would have to be her hair, espec...
