Tomopop LinkUP: Anime you have a happy new year!
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome to the first Tomopop LinkUP of the new year! We're only two days into 2014 and there's already a lot to look forward to in the coming year. Hard to believe, but over at My Figure Collection they've already got over 1,700 figures, models, and similar items listed for this year. That's just insanity! And when the winter events like Wonder Festival start up we're really going to see that number jump. Goes without saying that there'll be no shortage of great things to come.

This week we've got a lot of anime and game figure news to go over along with one good Doctor and a Clone Trooper on a journey!

Hello and welcome back to another round of Tomopop LinkUP! December 12 is observed as 'National Ding-A-Ling Day', a day set aside to watch out for crazy people. I couldn't say why, but doesn't that also mean it's a good day to act crazy? I don't see why not! After all there's a very fine line between genius and insanity and it probably takes a good amount of both to make it in the figure world. 

This week we're looking at some brilliantly warped works from a number of designers and customizers as well as a number of great looking ladies along with a few other things.

by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to another week of Tomopop LinkUP! It's been pretty crazy this past week, what with everyone trying to extend Black Friday and Cyber Monday into more than just a single day. If you looked around there were some good figure deals to be had, though I can't say I found much of interest at major retailers. Seemed like this year the best deals were online. Or maybe that's the same as every year and I'm just so used to buying stuff online that I don't notice anymore. Well, whatever the case, there were some good stuff out there.

This week on LinkUP we've got an unintentionally large number of Nendoroids to talk about alongside some designer figures, prototypes, bots, another Kickstarter, and some superheroes.

Tsume-Art's Erza Scarlet is real and ready to order photo
Tsume-Art's Erza Scarlet is real and ready to order
by Martin Siggers

Ever since it was first teased it's become increasingly apparent that Tsume was working on an Erza Scarlet figure to add to their existing Fairy Tail range. Well, that cat is well and truly out of the bag now, as listings for her have gone up over at the official Tsume Store, presumably to coincide with a reveal at Japan Expo.

We also get a small gallery, but it's more than enough to tell you she's looking absolutely amazing. Perhaps wisely, Tsume have eschewed all of her elaborate armour sets for her basic look, but there's still some marvelous colour and detail to see here. The face perfectly captures her look, the pose is dynamic without becoming over-the-top and the entire thing just really pops out at you. You can pre-order her directly from Tsume right now for €79, and all figures from the official site will come signed by the art team. bear in mind though that Erza will be limited to 3000 pieces and only 200 are available directly from Tsume, so you better make your mind up fast!

[ Pre-order at Tsume-Art store ]
