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 translations. In one case a line in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex talking about children being abducted by the mafia was translated as "Are you aware of the frequent occurrences of the mass naked child events within the country?" by a particularly awful fansub group. For a time the phrase "mass naked child events" became a meme referring to terrible translations.

When you think about it, Wonder Festival really is a mass naked figure event. Let's face it, most of the figures we'll be drooling over the pictures of this weekend probably won't be wearing a lot of clothes. And yes, some of them will indeed be naked, or pretty near it, especially if some of the previews in this edition of LinkUP is anything to go by. Plus we've got some other stuff to gawk at like videos, an interview, and various other things all after the jump!

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's Thanksgiving Day in the States and if you're anything like me you're probably bursting with great food and looking forward to a long tryptophan-induced nap. But while others were slaving over a hot stove I've been busy stuffing this week's LinkUP with all sorts of great stuff guaranteed not to put you to sleep!

This week we've got Japanese Happy Meal toys, plush Christmas ornaments, lots of handmade stuff, several teasers, and more. It's all gravy!

Shining Blade's Ira Blanc Neige gets an icy gallery

What more can be said about Ms. Ira Blanc Neige Gardinias that hasn't already been said with her previous figures? Well I won't be the one to figure it out, but gosh she's just beautiful. I especially like how sassy she looks...

Reserve or Regret? Import round up for March 16, 2012

It's time for another... lackluster... Reserve or Regret. Look at that header! I couldn't even fill it with five photos like I normally would! One of them I can't even post because it's very NSFW! Anyway, here is a run down o...
