Tomopop Review: Ques Q's Taiga Aisaka Swimsuit ver.

Of the many companies we cover on Tomopop, Ques Q is the one that's been eluding my collection the longest. That is, up until earlier this month, I didn't happen to own a single collectible from them (and they've made some fine-looking piec...

Kotobukiya's Taiga returns for a second last episode

I'm always thrilled when older figures get re-releases, particularly when the figures themselves are excellent. That's certainly the case here, as Kotobukiya have revealed they'll be giving collectors a second chance to grab their lovely 'L...


Miyazawa Model Expo 31: Vertex and Ques Q

For smaller companies, Miyazawa Model Exhibition serves as a good place to remind us what they're coming out with. Both Ques Q and Vertex did that, with Ques Q bringing its swimsuit Aisaka Taiga and school uniform Aegis. Katanagatari's...

Ques Q's Taiga proves small can be beautiful

Like any right thinking human being I love Toradora! and it's been gratifying to see a mini-revival of Taiga figures over the past six months or so. Now it's Ques Q's turn to release this rather fetching bikini clad version (previously...


Wonder Festival 2013 Winter: Ques Q

Ques Q's line-up for WonFes was in part already announced, so it wasn't surprising to see Aisaka Taiga and Aegis at their booth. What was a surprise, though, is that Persona 4's Elizabeth is joining them! The prototype sculpt is there and s...


Ques Q teases more WonFes 2013 Winter pieces

Ques Q has put a teaser on their event blog, featuring three more figures they'll be bringing to Wonder Festival 2013 Winter this year. Though the teasers don't reveal too much, the answers are pretty darn obvious. Wait, you want to know wh...


Ques Q unveils Wonder Festival 2013 exclusives

Ques Q have set up a website showing off their Wonder Festival 2013 Winter releases, and perhaps no surprise, they are bringing a lot of variants of past releases. First, they have grayscaled versions of their Ueda Hajime variant Hitagi and...


Miyazawa Model Exhibition: Ques Q and others

For the sake of everybody's sanity we're grouping some of these smaller displays together. Ques Q's display included their 1/8-scale Menma, Nanoha Takamachi in a swimsuit, Taiga Aisaka in bunny outfit, and the Hajime Ueda-style Bakemonogata...


Furyu has more for you than the usual at Dengeki Festival

I know you're happy to get your fill of Sword Art Online and Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb figures but certainly you're reaching your limit? If you are, luckily Furyu displayed prize figures at the Dengeki 20th Anniversary...


Aki no Saiten 2012: Dengeki 20th Anniversary exclusives

This weekend saw Dengeki Aki no Saiten 2012, and the fall festival had its fair share of figures. Among those in attendance were some of the exclusives Dengeki 20th Anniversary from Kotobukiya and Wave. From Kotobukiya, we have ne...


Dengeki's 20th Anniversary festival has Beach Queens

Wave has done a lot of Beach Queens, but these two limited edition ones for Dengeki Hobby's 20th Anniversary Festival may be my favorite ones thus far. They are, fittingly, two of ASCII Media Works' iconic characters: Toaru Kagaku no Railgu...


Sentinel, Ques Q and Alphamax in hobby scans

Since these three companies only showed off one figure each, I decided to just lump them into one update. You know, so they wouldn't be lonely. Sentinel has come out with a prototype of their Teekee from Ex Troopers. It's going to be limite...


Last night's pre-orders don't care if you're at SDCC

The world keeps turning even though most of us are paying attention to the big event at San Diego, so here's a quick post on last night's pre-order highlights! Wave added two Beach Queens figures to their arsenal, Muginami from Rinne no Lag...


Get your tsuntsun deredere quota with a new Taiga figure

Oh my goodness, this is just too adorable. It’s Tora~dorable! What can I say; I am a sucker for Taiga especially when she’s dressed in a bunny girl outfit. This tsuntsun bunny girl version of Toradora!'s leading lady is courte...


Clayz's Tenori Tiger is back for more pre-ordering

Any other Toradora! fans out there might remember this tiny Tenori Tiger figure from Clayz, but they might not know he's now getting a general re-release. Originally released in 2010 as a Clayz exclusive, the re-release is open to a number ...


Tomopop Review: Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga

I really don't hide very well that Toradora! is one of my favorite series of the past few years. I think it's the collection of figures of Aisaka Taiga that probably give that away to folks, but what can I say? She made me laugh, and I enjo...


Wonder Festival 2012 Winter: Miscellaneous figures

Despite all our coverage of Wonder Festival 2012 Winter, there's a lot of other companies who and some figures that haven't been posted yet for one reason or another, so we're rounding some of them up right here! Notably, CM's Corporation h...


Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga open for pre-order

Finally, Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga is open for pre-order! Well, at least it's the general release Taiga (because there's three of them). This Taiga comes packing her bouken, the Tenori Tiger, her normal tsundere face, an angrier face and sever...


Good Smile gives us more Nendos to choke our cash flow

There's nothing quite like new scans to make my Saturday all the brighter, especially when they are Nendoroids that I have some interest in! First up is Hoshino Ruri from Nadesico getting a rather adorable Petit. I don't really have much to...


Here's a look at Wave's Kawashima Ami China Dress ver. figure

A few months back, I reviewed Wave/ASCII Media's China Dress Aisaka Taiga figure, and now, in the latest batch of scans, we're getting a look at a new Kawashima Ami China Dress figure! Ami's a Figure Maniacs magazine, Dengeki Hobby magazine...


New scans show off Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga

The scans are a little bit behind this month, but while we're waiting for them to pop up, here's a little taste of what's to come. One of them has revealed the existence of a Aisaka Taiga Nendoroid! Or at least the back of her. It appears n...


Kotobukiya re-releases a Taiga into the wild

You worked the whole season to being her tsundere demeanor down to earth. Did you think something like being sold out would keep you apart from your Taiga? Kotobukiya is re-releasing last's year's hit Toradora! figure in all of her last epi...


Tomopop Review: Wave's Beach Queens Aisaka Taiga

Sometimes, two good things just seem to come together in an unexpected way. For example, there's Wave's Beach Queens line, which we've reviewed figures from before (but not in a while) and enjoyed. Then, there's the figures of Toradora!'s m...


China dress ver. Kawashima Ami garage kit appears

You might remember that there's been a figure of Toradora's Aisaka Taiga in a Chinese dress, based off an illustration, which we've posted about several times over the past year. Well, via 2chan, there's a garage kit on the way with the oth...


Yes, that's a poseable Taiga figure in Hobby Japan

Wait ... is that ... yes, it is a poseable figure of Toradora!'s Aisaka Taiga. As seen in the latest batch of scans from Hobby Japan, Taiga is getting not one, but two 1/8-scale figures in CM's Corproration's Gutto Kuru figure line. One wil...


You can have your own Palmtop Tiger with the help of Clayz!

After watching Toradora, one of the things I wanted most was a Palmtop Tiger. As seen during the show and the first ED sequence, this cuddly representation of lead gal Taiga made me chuckle every time I saw it. Thankfully Clayz has come in ...


Tomopop Review: Taiga Aisaka Miss-Con version

When Wave announced it, all the Toradora! fans on staff (not to mention Brad Rice over at Japanator) frothed at the mouth over this figure. I admit, even not having the seen the show (a crime I really should be put to death for), I know tha...
