Lingerie Style Fate/Stay photo

Wave lets you make your own lingerie Saber harem

Some ideas you could have sworn have been done before. Sure, there's plenty of Saber figures to go around. Someone has had to have made them in various states of sleeptime apparel, especially of Saber. Surprisingly, it does not exist until ...

Beach Queens Premium photo

Wave goes totally insane with Beach Queens Premium

While I think Wave's Beach Queens line is (usually) fine, I'm not exactly chomping at the bit for news about them. That might be why I missed that a pair of Galilei Donna Beach Queens announced last month kicked off a new range ti...

Tomopop LinkUP: The rated A-plush edition

Hello and Welcome to this week's Tomopop LinkUP! It's been a crazy, exhausting week for me. Between a three-day ice storm, a 17 hour power outage, and rushing through Christmas, it has all left me a little drained. But the news doesn't stop...

Tomopop LinkUP: The Girls und Painter edition

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 craz...

Beach Queens Sonico photo

Super Sonico joins the Beach Queens series

I'm actually really surprised that it took Wave this long to make a Beach Queens figure out of Super Sonico, but here we are. The figure was recently shown off by T_Santa, her proud illustrator, and she's currently unpainted. I'm enjoying t...

Idol Beach Queens photo

Pre-order Wave's Fantastic IdolMaster Beach Queens DX Set

I have long been a fan of The IdolMaster animated series (which you can watch over at Crunchyroll by the way). So when I saw that Wave had unleashed version 2.0 sculpts of Miki, Azusa and Takane, all at the same time, I did a double take! I...

Beach Queens Tsukiko photo

Beach Queens Tsukiko is missable

Though the retail shots of the upcoming swimsuit-clad Tsukiko looked nice enough, these new photos don't really paint this figure in the best light. Maybe it is indeed the lighting, but she's looking rather dull. Not quite as awful or slopp...

Tomopop Review: Beach Queens Yozora, Short Hair ver.

Wave shows off Beach Queens Noumi Kudryavka

HidaSketch Beach Queens photo

A second look at Beach Queens Yuno and Miyako
