Get ready for PIXAR's Inside Out with some adorable new Tsum Tsums


Wear your feelings on your... shelf
Jun 05
// Kristina Pino
This past Tuesday, Disney released a new set of Tsum Tsums as part of their promotions every first Tuesday of the month. Since Inside Out is showing in theaters starting the 19th, this series was a no-brainer. All of Riley's emotions are there: Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear, and Sadness, along with Bing Bong, Riley's imaginary friend. Are you going to see Inside Out in theaters?

Tomopop LinkUP: the Nendoroid rage edition

Dec 05 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
Kahotan has a gallery previewing Nendoroid Yoshika Miyafuji: Shinden Ver. from Strike Witches. She's already been put up for pre-order, but if you wanted to know how this version has changed from the original here's how. Crunchyroll posted a report on a Dokidoki! PreCure event that took place in Japan in November. The big draw for the show was life-size statutes of the characters as well plush versions of the fairies. They also had a number of other statues from previous events on display. French site Ogaman has posted a gallery for Tsume's Gemini Saga figure from Saint Seiya. It's 1/6 scale and cast in polyresin so it should be a pretty solid piece. Fantastic Plastic Toys has revealed three new colorways in their Mystical Warriors of the Ring mini figure line. Their online store has three-packs of Pearlescent Blue for US$9 and Glow in the Dark for US$10. Plus they're doing their first retailer exclusive, Pearlescent Black, for Jay's CD & Hobby. Kahotan did a release gallery for Nendoroid Tohka Yatogami from Date A Live. There's also a preview of Nendoroid Yoshino as well. If it's male figures you're looking for then TeniPuri.com has a prototype preview of Kotobukiya's upcoming ARTFX J Yukimura Seiichi figure from Prince of Tennis. No real details to go by at this time aside from it being 1/8 scale. GSC held one of their live broadcasts last week and figsoku has posted screen caps. It's mostly stuff we've seen before, but we do get our first good look at figma Yukari Akiyama from Girls und Panzer. Plus there's a new look at Nendoroid Akagi and some of her accessories from Kantai Collection. Pinkcheeks posted a great gallery featuring some Nendoroids exchanging gifts for Christmas. Cute stuff! Tokyo Otaku Mode is reporting on a number of new exclusive Gundam kits coming to Gundam Front Tokyo. The four sets, all with pretty long names include HGUC RX-0 Unicorn Gundam Unit 3 Phoenix (Destroy Mode) Ver. GFT ( Limited Gold Coating), HGUC 1/144 Unicorn Gundam Unit 2 Banshee (Destroy Mode) Ver. GFT, MG 1/100 RX-78-2 Gundam Ver. 3.0 Ver. GFT, and BB Warrior Gogg & Acguy & Zock Ver. GFT Tricolor Paint. Disney posted new images of Pixar Vinylmation series 2 on their blog. They added word bubbles to each pic so give them a look. Hot Toys is showing off the latest hero to join their 1/6 Avengers movie line: Bruce Banner! You can either get him alone or in a regional exclusive two-pack with Hulk. Kixkillradio did two festive galleries featuring Cu-Poche girls celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas. Those Thanksgiving costumes are such a great idea! That's all for this week! Hope you call come back next week for another Tomopop LinkUP!

Tomopop Review: Kaiyodo's Sci-Fi Revoltech Sulley & Mike

Oct 30 // Natalie Kipper
Figure Name: Sci-Fi Revoltech Monsters, Inc. Sulley & MikeFigure Maker: KaiyodoRetail/List Price: ¥3,334Available at: HobbyLink Japan I was utterly thrilled when I opened my package to find this box. It is just so detailed. The front, the back, and both of the box's sides are full of information and pictures of Sulley and Mike (both in figure and movie form). A flap on the box opens to reveal a window with the figures staring right back at you through a plastic screen. You can close the box's flap with the velcro dot on the side. It holds up very well. The two friends come with an instruction manual (in Japanese, of course), a sort of mini catalog, and a "Revoltech Coin." As far as I could gather it was some kind of plastic currency to collect. I immediately set it aside and began looking at the fun stuff. Aside from the actual body of Sulley and Mike, the set also includes two Monsters Incorporated work helmets (you can tell which is for which character because Mike's has a slot for his horn on the inside), an extra facial expression for Sulley, a small display placard, and an accessory box to put the hats and placard in. In all honesty, I didn't quite get the purpose of the box. Sulley was the first of the pair that I played with, and while it may just have been my inexperience with the figure line, he was the most challenging to figure out. For starters, his tail was initially seperate from the body and I had to attach it myself. It was tough to get the tail to fit onto the stub, and for a few moments, I was worried that I had broken it. I had several instances of worry like this when manipulating Sulley's joints in his arms. They were just so stiff. I eventually got a semi-handle on it, though. You can choose which way each of Sulley's eyes are looking by taking off the front of his face and rotating the nubs on the back of each corresponding eye to look their desired direction and then clicking the face back onto the rest of the figure.  Unfortunately, I am disappointed to say that Sulley had quite a few noticeable paint flaws. For starters, his horns were really rather dirty-looking. It seemed as though someone had rubbed dirt or some sort of waxy residue on them. It was really weird. Also, if I turned smiling face backwards, I noticed two spots of white where it should have been all blue. The paint somehow didn't make it to that area. The last flaw was seen when I went to change Sulley's heads. I noticed this big dirty, brown smudge on his neck. This one is thankfully hidden when his head is attached.  After being a little disappointed with Sulley, I cautiously moved onto Mike. Thankfully, I didn't have to assemble parts of him. Like Sulley, he can wear a hard hat. Mike's attaches to one of his horns so it hangs sort of askew on his head. To move Mike's eye, you pull his face off (just like I did with Sulley) and rotated the nub. I will say both the opening of the head and the moving of the eye were easier with Mike for some reason. Mike suffers from a rather odd design choice in that the majority of his joints are in his ankles and legs, making him incredibly difficult the pose as he falls over at the slightest provocation. This design is made more curious by the fact that Mike's arms have no joints at the hands or wrists. The arms can move up or down, but it ends there.  Like Sulley, Mike also suffers from paint issues. It is most noticeable on his backside, but his entire bottom area is speckled yellow-green, a different shade than the rest of his body. His joints are this color as well, making them stand out.  I'm not going to lie; this set was quite disappointing. I would let some of the joint problems pass as this is my first interaction with the line, but with the glaring quality issues, this set falls just short of "good" in my eyes. These are not the toys the heroes of Monstropolis deserve. I can't say the experience would dissuade me from trying another Revoltech, but I certainly wouldn't have such high hopes next time around. [A big thank-you to HobbyLink Japan for supplying us with this sample!]
