Tomopop Review: FuRyu's Cardcaptor Sakura
by Martin Siggers

The drought of Cardcaptor Sakura figures has long been a source of incredible frustration to me. The series has everything you need to make an army of great collectibles - cute girls, handsome boys, annoying mascots and an adorable lead character who has an endless supply of flashy outfits. Even though Good Smile Company announced a very adorable Nendoroid, there's still a glaring lack of scale static figures. So when FuRyu announced they would be making a prize figure of Sakura, fans jumped all over it. Can something traditionally cheap and cheerful live up to a long held desire though?

Upcoming Sailor Moon Ichiban Kuji are downright dreamy photo
Upcoming Sailor Moon Ichiban Kuji are downright dreamy
by Natalie Kipper

Japan-based Sailor Moon fans are in for a treat come November when the sailor-suited soldier of justice will be getting her own Ichiban Kuji series. And, oh my stars, those prizes sure are pretty. The "A prize," the Sailor Moon Dreamy figure with the titular magical girl resting on crescent moon amidst colorful, translucent stars, is sure to catch the eye of many a fan. Although, I know I wouldn't object to a cute bow tied Luna plush, either. Just saying.

Here's the full rundown of the available lottery prizes:

  • A prize: Sailor Moon Dreamy figure
  • B prize: bath towel
  • C prize: Luna plush
  • D prize: Crystal Star pouch
  • E prize: collection glass
  • F prize: reflection charm
  • G prize: hand towel
  • last ticket prize: transformation brooch pocket watch
  • double chance campaign: Sailor Moon Dreamy figure

Each play attempt costs ¥620. Good luck to all you Moonies out there!

Tomopop Review: Sega's PM Figure Rei Ayanami
by Tianxiao Ma

Prize figures, when I started collecting, weren't things you'd go out of your way to get. They were too small, not very detailed, and had dodgy quality. Over time, all three of those aspects gradually improved to the point where they might hold up to more expensive PVC figures.

I decided to check out Sega's Rei Ayanami PM Figure to see the state of prize figures right now. I'm also desperate for any reasonably priced Evangelion figures, as the latest movie hasn't garnered as much attention from figure makers as I'd hoped. If you can't afford the RAHs out there, maybe this review can help you decide on going the prize figure route.

FuRyu's Mikasa Ackerman is finally previewed
by Kristina Pino

A little over a month ago, we had just a peek at this Mikasa figure when we had a look at her partner in plastic, Eren. And it's about time, too, since she's due for release in June.

Check out the gallery for some pictures from FuRyu's production blog, and let us know what your thoughts are! Personally, I think she's great for a prize figure. I mean, I guess her hair looks a little goopy, but it's tough to argue with ~¥1,600.
