First 4 Figures debuts NiGHTS as next Sega All-Star

Many people who have followed Tomopop from its infancy may know just how much the Sonic the Hedgehog series meant to me growing up, but it's much fewer and far between that I get to talk about just how important NiGHTS Into Dreams was to me...

First 4 Figures puts Beat from Jet Set Radio up for pre-order

First 4 Figures has pulled another memory of my childhood from out of its magical hat! Beat from Jet Set Radio is the newest figure to reach their collection, and is up for pre-order through their website shop. Beat obviously is shown grind...

Hug gaming history with COSPA's Megadrive plush

At the end of Wreck-It Ralph, "retro" was defined as "old but cool." In the case of COSPA's new Megadrive plush, I would substitute "cool" with "absolutely, freaking adorable." I mean, look at this thing! It's arms are controllers. It's rig...

Ichiban Kuji goes mad for Cardcaptor Sakura

As a long time Cardcaptor Sakura fan, I feel confident in saying it's a pretty good time right now. Not only are we getting the painfully cute Sakura Nendoroid, but NISA recently rescued the show itself from licensing hell, and now we'...

Tomopop Review: Sega's PM Figure Rei Ayanami

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 ...

Revisit Skies of Arcadia with First 4 Figures' Vyse statue

Okay, I am totally having a nostalgic, fangirl-y trip here. First 4 Figures revealed the third character in their SEGA All-Stars line (the first two being Ryo Hazuki and Akira Yuki) and it is none other than Vyse, the hero of Skies of ...

1983 Tokyo Toy Show photo

Witness toy history with this 1983 Tokyo Toy Show video

There are a lot of retro nostalgia toy videos on YouTube; mostly retrospects and individuals gushing about their favorite figures. So rare is it for a video to surface that takes a slice right out of time, and even more-so when that moment ...

First 4 Figures teases Skies of Arcadia's Vyse

First 4 Figures promised a teaser of an upcoming statue at 5,000 Facebook likes, adding that it was from a Sega game. They've now posted a photo on their Facebook page as a teaser, a tiny ribbon of a photo featuring a prototype. Let's just ...


Readers vote on pose for First 4 Eggman statue

First 4 Figures wants nothing more than to make a classic Eggman statue for their Classic Sonic line. Problem is, they don't have a pose picked out. Being the awesome guys and gals they are, they put up a poll in their forums to let fans vo...

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer: Sega prize figures

Sega always has a diverse assortment of prize figures to peddle. Their booth at WonFes reached all the way across the ocean for some Pixar and Disney figures to go alongside the licensed Japanese ones. Toy Story, Monsters University, and Th...


Lovely SEGA prize Kuroneko hitting UFO catchers in June

The last time I was at the arcade, I caught sight of this absolutely lovely Kirino Kousaka figure in the UFO Catchers. She is big, and detailed, and just so happy and cheerful-looking; I actually tried getting her despite knowing full well ...


First 4 Figures new SEGA All Stars line leads w/ Shenmue

First 4 Figures has been making many collectors' figure dreams come true. With absolutely gorgeous pieces detailing the expansive universes of Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid to name a few, it's difficult to decide what...


Good Smile's Mikudayo coming to Project Diva f

Project Diva f is coming to the Playstation 3 next Thursday, but Sega apparently has one terrifying surprise for that version of the game: Mikudayo. Yes, as seen in scans from Famitsu, the PS3 version will have Good Smile Company's gia...


Medicom rolling out a RAH Hatsune Miku for 2013

There seems to be a never-ending chain of surprises still coming out from last week's Wonder Festival, and the latest of those would be the reveal of a Real Action Heroes Hatsune Miku figure. Produced by Medicom Toy with a face sculpt from ...


Tomopop Review: SEGA Premium Prize Mari Makinami

When I think about prize figures, I think of cute little static figures that are somewhere around 1/10-scale, though sometimes up there at 1/8-scale. Mari here? She's a hulking ~10.4 inches tall, much taller than almost everything else on t...


Tomopop Review: Sega Prize Princess of the Crystal

Princess of the Crystal figures always look rather impressive because of that outfit of hers. It tends to, you know, take up more space than the lonesome figure normally would. And in some cases (like with the figure we're looking at today)...


Border Break's Fiona is getting made

Border Break is a mecha arcade game by Sega that I've never heard of until just now. The folks at Wing have done the natural thing, which is to take the bustiest character from the game and make a figure of her. The character in question is...


Another look at adorable upcoming OreImo prize figures

It was only a matter of time before I found another reason to gush about figures from OreImo. We've posted about these Lucky Lottery items before, but now we've got some new, clean images and a reminder that now in early September is t...


First 4 Figures' Knuckles gets a few videos!

Well now, I'd say Knuckles has been playing in the cloning machine a bit too much! I'm kidding, of course. First 4 Figures has shared a few videos on their blog showing the process of getting Knuckles finished up and ready to be heading to...


Blue Blur hits Sanrio: Incoming Sonic Hello Kitty plush!

This is the cutest thing I have seen in my life. I can't even.. I don't have the words for this. You don't understand. I have been a life-long fan of both Sonic the Hedgehog and Hello Kitty, and my brain can't handle the awesomeness when th...


Under the Radar: Sega Prize Vocaloid Vignettes vol. 2

I didn't know these adorable Vocaloid Vignette figures existed until I started seeing them everywhere, only to find out they were set for release in June? Included in this wave of figures are a Rin and Len Kagamine, Meiko and two Hatsune Mi...


Sega reveal new upcoming Hatsune Miku prize figure

I realize the subject of my post isn't anything shocking, but the new figure really is cute despite that fact that Miku is wearing her standard uniform instead of any of the great outfits she's got in the Project Diva games. Any of these wo...


This custom Miku keeps cool during the summer

Hey check it out, another Snow Miku! The design isn't all that original, but that's because it's a repaint of Sega's "Fairy of Music" Hatsune Miku figure. For a custom paint job, that's pretty good! We came across this on fg, done by a user...


Kuroneko dons a magical girl costume, looks adorable

I couldn't help but notice that there are not one, but two upcoming prize figures featuring Kuroneko of OreImo fame dressed up in a magical girl outfit (Alpha Omega Cosplay Version). She looks absolutely adorable, and I love that even ...


Tomopop Review: Sonic the Hedgehog Nendoroid

Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the most iconic characters of my childhood. From the very first game I knew he was the character that would stick with me through my childhood, be it through all the comics, cartoon shows, and future games we'd ...


Another Sonic Nendoroid gallery before he's released!

Alright! GSC has teased us with some new photos of Nendoroid Sonic over on Mikatan's Blog, and it makes me even more excited for mind to arrive before long. In fact, the blog post mentions that GSC will be shipping them on April 25th, so be...

It's time for SEGA Prizes for February 2012

Woohoo! It's time to check out the SEGA Standard and Core prizes that could have been won in UFO Catcher games during February 2012. There's actually a couple I might try to find somehow or another! Besides the usual Hello Kitty items (Whic...


Prize Fair 2012 Summer: Sega - Plush

At Prize Fair 2012 Summer, Sega's booth had a boatload of plushes but, to be honest, a good portion of them were from series that I am not familiar with. This is a flaw on my part and I must ask you, good sleuths of the Tomocommunity, to sp...


Surprise pre-order: Staind series Yozora and Sena

Completely out of left field I've just noticed that last night pre-orders have begun for a 1/10 scale Yozora and Sena (separately, of course). They're both a part of Media Factory's Staind series, and while I'm not entirely convinced by tha...
