Wonder Festival 2017 Winter: Wonderful Hobby Life For You

There were some intriguing Nendoroid and figma announcements at Wonder Festival but the scale figure previews weren't as interesting. Under the Wonderful Hobby Life For You banner, Good Smile Company and associated groups showed off a ton o...

Wonder Festival 2016 Winter: Good Smile Company part 1

Good Smile Company's Wonderful Hobby Life For You display is like the all-you-can-eat buffet of Wonder Festival. By my quick internet research I estimate they have infinity figures. And I feel like half of that infinite number goes to FREEi...

Top sales 8/31 to 9/6 photo

Top selling toys in Japan for week of 8/31 to 9/6

Normally we see the top hobby sales go to Bandai, mainly dominated by Gunpla. Not this week. This time around it's Good Smile Company (with an assist from Phat!) dominating. Bandai is still taking over the overall ranking, but it always fee...

Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2015: figma

Back in February we got our first look at a bunch of new figma from Max Factory, Phat!, and FREEing. Since then we really haven't heard a whole lot outside of an occasional appearance here and there. While there's nothing here we haven't se...

Kill la Kill's Satsuki Kiryuin figure now in color!

Back at the Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring we saw the unpainted prototype sculpt of Miss Satsuki Kiryuin in her Junketsu costume. Now, we can see her in her full color glory! Well, at least as well as you can in magazine scans that is. I ...

Kahotan previews Mika Jougasaki: Charisma Girl Ver.

Oh, Mika, I wag my finger at thee! Kahotan recently uploaded a preview for Phat Company's Mika Jougasaki: Charisma Girl Ver. (currently available for pre-order). I have to confess that I'm a little worried about Mika's career. You see, the ...

Good Smile's here to drop some more delays

By now the regular Good Smile Company delay post is a warm familiar friend. OK, that's a lie. It's still a crushing disappointment, but at least Good Smile is prompt and consistent about notifying us when our eagerly awaited will be awaited...

Tomopop LinkUP: Mass naked figure event

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 transla...

Don't lose your way to these Ryuko Matoi pre-orders

With Kill la Kill pretty much unanimously agreed to be the greatest thing in the history of the universe, it was only a matter of time before the figures started coming out of the woodwork, and it's Phat! Company who are first off the ...

Good Smile unleashes a torrent of further delays

We should have known it was too good to be true. When Good Smile Company announced a very slim roster of delays just a few days ago, it looked like the company was on track for a remarkably punctual December. Turns out not so much, as a fre...

Phat! Company announces Kill la Kill's Ryuko Matoi

Anyone happen to be at Miyazawa Model Expo Autumn 2013? I wish I was, because I would seriously hug the folks over at Phat! Company right now. Apparently they will be making a figure in 1/8th scale for Ryuko Matoi from Kill la Kill, se...

Tomopop Review: Phat! Company's 1/8 Meruru

Back in 1997 Gust Corporation introduced the world to the Atelier video game series. 16 years and 15 games (plus a few spin-offs) later the series has become a staple among JRPG fans. And yet, the series has been pretty light when it comes ...

Good Smile confirm a mass of further delays

Hold on Good Smile Company, I thought we'd already gotten June's delays done and dusted? Alas, it was just a trick to lure you into a false sense of security, as GSC have now unleashed a massive second announcement confirming a whole raft o...


Phat! Company teases their now-painted Yoshino

Right in the wake of Plum's own Yoshino figure going up for pre-order, Phat! Company is teasing their own 1/8-scale rendition which is now painted! We've got a back view here of the figure, which we last saw at Miyazawa Model Expo.  Be...

Stardust Witch Meruru aims for (and strikes) my heart

I suppose it's pretty rare to see a figure of an anime character within an anime... moe-ception?! Anywho, Mikatan's preview of this cutie came in along with the pre-orders last night, so you'll see both the retail sample and Mikatan's pictu...


Princess Meruru pre-orders will be concocted tonight

Even though I've played a lot of video games over the years I'm not really what you'd call a 'hardcore gamer'. I'm the type of person who picks up a game and just plugs away at it for a couple hours at a time. There are very few games out t...


The iDOLM@STER girls give a mini size Cinderella story

The Fate series gets magical with Prisma Illya

This one is out of left field but I guess when you're getting a new anime, you'll most likely get yourself a figure. Especially if you're a spin off of Fate/stay night. Both previewed by Mikatan's Blog and now available for pre-order, the u...


Good Smile Company delays your October pre-orders

Did you look at Phat's Bayonetta and think to yourself "Gee, I sure wish there was a better view of her crotch"? If so, then Mikatan's got you covered in her latest preview. I'll let the pictures do most of the talking, but wowza, I still c...


Tomopop Review: Totooria Helmold by Phat! Company

I was pretty excited about Phat! Company's Totooria (a.k.a. Totori) Helmold when it was first revealed. It's not like I'm a huge fan of the Atelier series or anything like that - I just thought this was a really cute and cool looking figure...
