C2E2 2016: Chibi Essence

One of my favorite things about cons is finding stuff that's off the beaten path of my fandom, and that's where Chibi Essence comes in. I'm not very engaged in the indie/designer toy scene, but every once in a while I'll stumble across a bo...

Take a pilgrimmage with this Journey statue

Thatgamecompany's Journey was a big hit, paving the way for more thoughtful, Zen-like games to enter the mainstream. The fact that it got a PS4 re-release speaks to its lasting impact. But if living the experience digitally isn't enough, ma...

Not one, but two gorgeous statues of Mike Mignola's Hellboy have gone up for pre-order at Mondo's store. They're not expected to be released until the last quarter of this year, but they're probably going to be worth the wait. Both statues ...

Embrace the Dark Hadou with Oni Akuma

Street Fighter is a funny franchise, isn't it? Its roots are humble enough, but like the Fast and Furious series, each subsequent installment gets more and more insane. It has gone from a relatively small game about, well, street brawl...

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...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Amie-Grand

Amie-Grand had some nice figures at Treasure Festa with my personal favorite being Asuka. I like the concept, with her chilling on a really cool NERV-themed base. You can also see a polystone 1/6-scale Chuubou Sonken from Ikkitousen Xtreme ...


Gaming Heads unleashes an incredible Dragonborn

It's difficult to find a gamer who didn't fall in love with the mountains and valleys of Skyrim. And if you've wanted a real life memento from those days in the virtual world, then boy, do Gaming Heads have you covered with their incredible...


Amie-Grand looks down on Evangelion's Asuka in a good way

Asuka Langley Shikinami from Rebuild of Evangelion; love her or hate her, you at least have to admire some of the figures released of her. I know I'm drawn in by Amie-Grand's latest 1/6-scale figure of this fiery red head since it's posed i...


[NSFW] Miyazawa Model Exhibition: NSFW figure roundup

It's that time again: NSFW stuff for the late night! The Miyazawa Model Exhibition had a handful of NSFW figures so I thought I'd do a roundup of them. The lone NSFW entry from Art Spirits is Haruko Amaya from the manga Make-Ki! BEAT had a ...

We are all up in the NSFW pre-orders today. This one is for Karisa from the hentai manga High School Planet Prowler. It's a 1/6-scale polystone figure from Milk Pot. I know what you're thinking. "A polystone figure for an obscure character ...


A new Jubei bounces into pre-order

Hyakka Ryouran may have finished its anime run, but you know what will always be around? People who like boobs and butts. Jubei has been a popular character for this reason, and now Q-Six has announced a polystone figure of her is up for pr...


Pop Culture Shock's Sagat is rocking the tights

If you play Street Fighter with my buddies, there is only one sound that drowns out the noise of the game's music: "TIGER... TIGER... TIGER... TIGER..." Indeed I'm no stranger to Sagat's high/low fireballing ways. Pop Culture Shock Collecti...

Blow up the land with First 4 Figures' Worms 2 diorama

It figures that on a day where we celebrate the U.S. of A's independence from the Crown by blowing up a portion of our land, we talk about a diorama of game that does the same. I can honestly say I have fond memories of Worms. It was the ga...


Cruella DeVil and Genie busts get pre-orders on Sideshow

Two neat-o, nicely detailed busts by Grand Jester studios just went up for pre-order on Sideshow that push all the right buttons for me to pretty much decide my DO WANT for this month. The evil jerk Cruella DeVil (101 Dalmations) and Genie ...


You are not worthy to gaze upon this Tiger Mask

When Brian posted about Kaitendoh's rendition of this magnificent specimen of a man, the promo shots wisely did not get too close and intimate. The simple fact is, we are not capable of absorbing that amount of manliness. Moeyo has decided ...


Kaitendoh brings us the true power of Tiger Mask

Previously on Tomopop, I talked about how much I loved Tiger Mask. Today, I get to talk about that again, with Kaitendoh's new 1/6-scale polystone statue of Tiger Mask himself, sculpted by Shinichi Tagai! The definition on this piece is pre...


Space Ace's Kimberly gets some love from Electric Tiki

Space Ace was a game that perhaps never got as much love as its Don Bluth Studios predecessor, Dragon's Lair (well, there's also the whole laserdisc thing), but that doesn't mean it's been forgotten. In fact, Electric Tiki is releasing a 1/...


Sideshow's newest Marvel Comiquette is Magik

The latest addition to Sideshow Collectibles' Marvel Comiquette line is none other than Magik (a.k.a. Illyana Rasputina, sister of Colossus). She's 14 inches tall and made from polystone, and sculpted in great detail by Matt Aylward and Tre...

Chill out with Sideshow's Iceman Comiquette

Sideshow Collectibles has revealed their newest Marvel Comiquette statue, featuring the one and only Iceman. The polystone statue stands 18" tall and in perhaps the coolest feature, is semi-translucent, it seems. Well, that or Sideshow...


Amie-Grand's Asuka looks like she had a rough day

Amie-Grand is all about the polystone statues. It's their thing. Well, that and Ikkitousen. But from time to time they'll produce something from a different title. ...though that title is normally Evangelion. And that's what they have comin...


Pop Culture Shock's newest Street Fighter statue is Chun Li

The fine folks at Pop Culture Shock Toys have pretty much made me cry over the past few years. Their Street Fighter statues, in particular, because I've wanted the Cammy and M. Bison ones and have never been able to afford them when pre-ord...
