Tomopop LinkUP: Mass naked figure event

Feb 06 // Jeremy Emerje Crocker
Kotobukiya has posted a gallery for their latest Shining figure, Neris, on their blog. She's a great looking figure and available now for pre-order so go find yourself one. Orchid seed isn't only offering their special chrome bikini version of Sonico at Wonder Festival that we talked about last week. They've also got a special clear A5 file of the Sorceress from Dragons Crown, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt trading cards, and Seven Deadly Sins bath salts. Vertex will be offering this very special and very limited version of Noel Vermillion at Wonder Festival. The yellow repaint is limited to only 50 and sold at 8,800 each, the same prices as the regular version. Grizzry Panda will be showing off their latest garage kit, Kongou from Kantai Collection at Wonder Festival. It doesn't seem like she'll be up for sale, but they will be bringing many of their more popular kits from previous events back for sale. RocketNews24 reported on another Licca-chan doll crossover, this time with Kumamoto city mascot Kumamon. She's sporting a cute red and black dress with bear ears and comes with a little Kumamon. The real surprise is that she went up for sale exclusively at Takara Tomy Mall on February 1 and has already sold out. Toy As Object is reporting on this really cool and unconventional Crystal-Mecha by Super7 and artist Matt Allison. It's already been released in black with an orange crystal, it is now available for US$95 in red with a translucent blue crystal stand nine inches at the Super7 store. Hot Toys posted an interview with acclaimed anime director, character designer, and mecha artist Shinji Aramaki. They talk about his latest movie, the 3D CG take on Captain Harlock and the figure HT made for it. AmiAmi blog posted a gallery for Megahouse's G.E.M Series Sasuke Uchiha figure. They did a great job with posing on this figure and he even comes with special head parts so you can swap his eyes between regular, Sharingan, and Mangekyo Sharingan. Also at the same link is the latest Naruto additions to the Petit Chara Land series. The series features Naruto (Kurama Mode with baby Kurama), Sasuke (with Aoda), Orochimaru (with Manda), Hashirama Senju (with, uh, trees), Madara (with hypnotized Kurama) and ANBU Kakashi (with Bull). Cute figures, wouldn't know they were at war. Traditionally Bandai doesn't do Wonder Festival, choosing to handle their own events. That went out the window last year when we got our first look at D-Arts Sailor Moon at Wonder Festival 2013 [Summer]. This year Tamashii Nations will be representing Bandai and bringing along a bunch of their newest figures as well as some we've never seen before. We should be getting our first look at new figures from Infinite Stratos and Tiger & Bunny plus some others they haven't revealed the source for yet. quesQ will be at Wonder Festival with a number of new limited edition repaints for sale. Up for grabs will be Flandre Scarlet in pink and Kazami Yuuka in blue from Touhou Project, Elizabeth in black and pink from Persona 4: Arena, and Percival in red from Eiyuu Senki Gold. Of course they've got other things planned to debut at the event. The Japanese AmiAmi blog posted a gallery for Prince of Tennis' Shiraishi Kuranosuke from the ARTFX J line by Kotobukiya. Fans of the series will probably find very little to complain about here. Kahotan posted a gallery for Parfom Aigis which includes a very informative interview with Phat! Company's Ootani. There's also a new look Parfom Nozomi Hoshino which acted like the prototype for the series and will make an appearance at Wonder Festival this weekend. Primal Heart updated with a look at their latest Saber garage kit from Fate/EXTRA CCC. The kit features Saber in a tiny nightgown and they really captured her well! Artist Amanda Visell made this really cute 8 inch Wood Jackalope Dunny. It's available for US$400 at the Switcheroo shop. I thought the jack in jackalope stood for jackrabbit, but I guess it stands for lumberjack. [embed]33525:37254:0[/embed] Universes collide when Filmation Skeletor voice actor Alan Oppenheimer and 200X Skeletor voice Brian Dobson come together to play with Skeletor figures for this promo video for Power-Con. Man, Alan can still do the voice perfectly! Aniplex is working on another Homura figure for Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Like most things these days this one is movie based and the figure title translates to something like Flame Time Regression ver. Should be really nice when it gets a limited release in September on at the Aniplex+ store. Need another reason to get Attack on Titan figma Armin this weekend? Try Akiba Hobby's advance gallery out and see if that convinces you. [embed]33525:37255:0[/embed] Friends of Tomopop Jesse DeStasio, Nicholas Fung, and Cade Hiser have joined forces to host a new weekly toy show on YouTube called ToyPizza. Every Tuesday they'll be talking about great toys for all ages past and present, doing outings, and just talking about the stuff we all love. The first vid is just over four minutes long so it's easy to jump in and watch. What have you got to lose? And that's it for this week. Not sure what we'll have to talk about next week with Wonder Festival over, but I'll be back again nextweek with another Tomopop LinkUP nonetheless!

Show and Tell: Brian's NYCC swag

Jan 27 // Brian Szabelski
Oh my, what's this? It's the Moon Jumper Wet Suit Maria figure from ESC-Toy! She's the same as the regular Wet Suit Maria, but with a spacesuit-themed color to her. Well, I like space, so I had to have her! The only bad thing about Maria is ... well, she doesn't quite stand up on her own without wobbling or falling over. Still, nothing I can't fix when I finally put her up for display! I love how with just changing the color palette on Wet Suit Maria, Erick has been able to make her outfit look more like a spacesuit than a frog suit. You can still see the frog design, but it's not quite as obvious at first. It's the I Think You're Soopa plush collab with Steff Bomb! Based on Erick's earlier Soopa Coin-Up Bros. figure, this one is a little arcade machine with tiny little legs, just looking for a good place to sit and someone to play its game. The craftsmanship on the plush is actually quite superb; sure, the felt feet do kind of easily get twisted about being thin, but it sits without a problem, and there aren't any visible seams or loose threads hanging off it. Pinned to the body was a little Steff Bomb tag, which can easily be removed and put back on without damaging the plush itself. The back was signed by Steff Bomb and numbered. As you can see, only 15 were made and I have number 8. Joy! Of course, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to add another Foster to my collection from Super7! The little cookie who likes to eat himself is one of my favorite designs, and his oatmeal vanilla edition was at NYCC.  Chocolate Foster is so happy to have a new friend! Finally, there's ... ummmm, excuse me? Sleepy fellow? Could you wake up? Ah well, looks like he's out cold. In any case, this is Koguma Kazuhiro, originally designed by Tokyoplastic and myplasticheart's MPH Labs. This special Kazuhiro edition has a design from kaNO on it that's somewhat samurai-inspired, so I figured picking it up would do me no harm. Plus, I've always kind of liked the bigger Koguma figures and this fits a bit better on my shelf. If you'd still like to check him out, he's available at myplasticheart for US$17.99! That wraps up my NYCC haul for this year. Not a whole lot, but it's stuff I'm all satisfied with. There's actually one more thing on the way that's late in getting here (an Amanda Conner sketch), but I figure this ought to keep me happy for a while. ... Well, until C2E2 and San Diego Comic Con.
