Presenting Saber, spinning around a desk near you

Check out a new smiling Saber from Wing, now up for pre-order. She is the "Last Episode" version from Fate/Stay Night [Realta Nua], the PSVita port of the PS2 version of the original game. Whew. So, basically one of the "good...

Tomopop Review: Alter's Waver Velvet photo
Tomopop Review: Alter's Waver Velvet
by Martin Siggers

While I appreciate a pretty plastic lady as much as the next person, I do think it's a shame that we don't get more male figures. That means whenever one shows up it's worth taking notice, particularly when a major manufacturer decides to take the plunge. Alter's Altair range dedicated to pretty boys has produced some really lovely figures over the past few years, and now they've taken on the Type-Moon franchise by making Waver Velvet, the reluctant teenage mage from Fate/Zero. Can the wizards at Alter cast their spell over him too?

Say hello to another trio of new Beach Queens photo
Say hello to another trio of new Beach Queens
by Emily Smalara

The bathing beauties keep on coming, with Wave just about ready to announce three new Beach Queens additions. Sort of. Ever the popular franchise, Type-Moon's Nasuverse is being represented again with the slightly surprising addition of Tsukihime's Aoko Aozaki. Perhaps due to her popularity and importance in the lesser-known Mahou Tsukai no Yoru, Aoko will be granted both a standard version as well as a "Rurihime" version. Either way both seem quite cute, and I'm really digging her swimsuit design! What little is visible, at least!

The third new figure is Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai's Nagi Kodachi. There doesn't seem to be much information about her beyond her eroge origins, but she's also super cute and even manages to rock some shorter twin tails, a style which I usually despise. The adorable wink may have something to do with the appeal! Whichever girl is your preference, Wave should be providing more information at 1:00 AM, presumably Japan time.

Take a stab at pre-orders for AlphaMax's 1/7 Saber Lily

Saber Lily is just one of those designs that appeals. It's not flashy, bright, or overly adorned. Its beauty lies in its simplicity. Whenever a company has their take on the alternate Saber, it's hard to ignore the beauty. Al...

Pre-order this staircase to get a free 1/7 Saber maid

Home architecture isn't a subject often discussed at Tomopop. However, today is an exception as it will lead to a free figure. Plum has sculpted in great detail a 1/7 staircase. As a bonus to their meticulously crafted stairc...

Tomopop Review: figma Saber Bride
by Andres Cerrato

Getting the bride to the altar can be difficult. Max Factory had an incredibly difficult time getting Saber there. Delays and delays kept pushing back the date, but figma Saber Bride finally arrived alongside the game she delayed in the process.

After all the waiting, was she worth it? Find out in the review of figma Saber Bride!

Alter's Touko Aozaki heads to pre-order

Touko is from TYPE-MOON's Kara no Kyoukai, which I guess is one of their earliest works. I don't really know what it is or what it's about, but hey here's a woman from it. This 1/7-scale figure from Alter is based on official...
