Earlier this year we saw Kaitendo release quite the curvy Celia of Walkure Romanze fame, but they don't seem done just yet. Rather than come out with something all new to take advantage of the anime currently airing, we'll be...
Day Break Illusion is probably one of the worst series in recent memory that I've still managed to finish. Against all odds, it was an awful, muddled mess. A dark, tarot-themed magical girl series helmed by a number of Nanoha...
Do you like ninja girls flying through the air swinging katars, swords and everything else around? Who doesn't? If you do then you should check out Kaitendo's latest sculpt of Homura from the bazonga-filled anime series Senran Kagura.
Kaitendo's sculpt of Homura has a lot of spunk to it. I love her pose and style, she has all these weapons strapped to her back, a katar in one hand and a definitive "I'm going to ownz you" look in her eye. I have never seen such a beautiful wielder of katars and to be honest I am going to be tempted to pre-order her when orders go up, and they should go up soon!
I don't really know a lot about Homura's character except for a little bit of backstory and what I saw in the Senran Kagura anime, but who watches that anime for the story anyway? However I have to say the pose and expression of her character ignites a desire in me to play a fighting game. This says wonders for the skill it took to make her look this awesome.
Alisa looked hot when pre-orders were first announced. Over a month has passed and she still looks hot! This is what happens when a company like AlphaMax who I think are very good at making quality swimsuit figurines make an action posed busty female like Alisa from God Eater.
Do you know what the best part of this figure is? Well, if you ask Rio, me, and some of Tomo staff then you hear that she is a definite candidate for the best butt of the year award. If that award ever existed, not that she is lacking in other departments. Her stockings just show off her detailed sculpt so nicely. However there is so much more to her than that!
AlphaMax did an outstanding job of detailing the base and sword of this figure as well as making the clothing cover just enough to look modest from any above angles. Actually, I find her interesting because from above she does not look pervy at all. Alisa could easily be placed on a low, middle, or high shelf in a collector’s case for different display options. Plus with a red and black color scheme she should blend in great about anywhere in ones collection.
What do you think Tomopeeps? Did any of you pre-order this lovely lady?
It's no surprise to many of you, but Kotobukiya's Bishoujo line of figures are one of our favorite figure lines here at Tomopop. As excited as I am for Chun Li, others on staff are similarly excited for Cammy as the second re...
Occasionally in this hobby you just see stuff that is really, really weird. This is one of those cases, as Griffon outs yet another Vividred Operation figure that they're making. The subject this time is Vivid Yellow, aka Himawari Shinomiya, who they've already released threedifferent versions of. Gotta ride that cash cow hard I guess.
So what makes this one so special, aside from the fact it's a swimsuit version. Well, sheer size is one thing - Himawari is rendered in 1/2.5 scale, leaving her standing at about 60cm tall. The other is...well, she's going to come in two versions. One regular version and one version which - and there's no other way to say this - has squishy boobs. Yeah.
I'm sort of literally lost for words here. One thing I will say is that if there's any sort of silicone involved in the construction, this is not a figure that will age well. There's also the matter of price to consider - the regular edition will cost a whopping ¥28,000 while you'll need ¥29,900 to get your squeeze on. Don't even think about the shipping cost when she's released in January. If you must have her, pre-order links are below. Me? I'm going to back slowly away from the computer now.
At a casual glance Kirino may look like your typical swimsuit figure, but Griffon went the extra mile by capturing the look of her hair by sculpting it to puff out and billow just right to be pretty. They got her eyes and blush spot on and did a good job bringing out the moe with that fang in her mouth. Her knees and feet are poised in a way that make her look a little bit vulnerable, further bringing out that moe vibe. I also like the way her colors are balanced between the baby blue swimsuit, pink towel, and orange colored hair.
While Kirino is usually playful and even quite flirty I think the amount that she tugs on her swimsuit here to show off her thigh is a little bit excessive and leads little to the imagination. However this kind of craziness is part of what made her a popular character right?
There has been so much Sailor Moon stuff that it’s just too much at this point. We get it, you’re the one named, Sailor Moon! What there hasn’t been enough of is toys of Tuxedo Mask.
I think there’s been just one trade figure of him that’s been released so far. I’m honestly surprised Bandai hasn’t added a figure of him in their S.H. Figuarts line. Well, now Tuxedo Mask will be getting his own gashapon figure set.
It hasn’t been officially announced yet, but an image has surfaced showing five unpainted figures. Each figure shows him in a different pose like standing, kneeling, and for some reason, upside down. This series will be called “Go for it! Tuxedo Mask,” and will be released in March. You can find this set up for pre-order now on J-List for US$15.
Recently we've been treated to another creepy usage of the poseable Pandora System, in the form of Ro-Kyu-Bu's Hinata. Chara-Ani appears to have come to their senses though, preparing to let loose a blind boxed set of charact...
Kuroneko has been getting a lot of love in the figurine world lately. It's about darn time that someone cared for her too! Next month Kotobukiya is releasing this sweet lolita dressed kitten girl to the masses. However if you ordered her and want to check her out ahead of time, or if you are on the fence then you should check outAkibahobby'sgallery of her.
Kotobukiya did a great job on the overall sculpt and color scheme of this figure. The ruffles and fine details approach Alter levels of quality. The white and red checkered base with brown rim adds an additional level of class to the appearance which I did not expect. Really, there are lots of cool details all over from the shiny slippers on her feet to the tips of her ear which are practically begging to be examined.
While I am not a big enough fan to buy this version of Kuroneko at her full price, I definitely will be keeping an eye out for sales to perhaps snag her later. What do you think tomopeeps? Have any of you ordered this sweet lolita?
A pretty girl in little more than a button-down top is one of life's simple pleasures, and that's just what we're getting from Chara-Ani. Blasphemy it may be, I've never been a huge Index fan despite having partaken of a fair...
Back in October pre-orders became available for Cu-Poche Kuroneko. Many of us were pleased with the stock factory images of her, but AmiAmi's English blog did a review of their own with some pretty nice photos to compliment t...
