Tomopop Review: MegaHouse's Natsume Yuujinchou Petit Chara Land
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume's Book of Friends) will probably always rank as one of my favorite top anime series of all time. For four seasons I laughed and cried with this series like few others. I was pretty sad when the final season, Natsume Yuujinchou Shi, ended back in 2012, but thankfully not all is lost. Not only is the manga still ongoing, there are still companies like MegaHouse more than happy to keep making figures. In this case we'll be looking at their recent entry in the long running Petit Chara Land series featuring Natsume Yuujinchou

Can these little figures really hold up to the discerning eye of a fan? Find out after the jump!

If you're like me then your week feels a little less complete after years of getting a weekly dose of the Naruto manga ended in November. Sure, I was satisfied with the ending (got my pairings!), but I still want more. Thankf...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Sailor Moon mini figs

These Colossal Titan trading figs are full of the feels

Attack on Titan's Colossal Titan may be an enormous man-eating monster, but it sure does lend itself well to some great and unusual figures. I thought lounging in a teacup or the popular Nendoroid couldn't be topped, but...

LEGO rolls out next round of collectible minifigures photo
LEGO rolls out next round of collectible minifigures
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

The LEGO collectible minifigure blind packs are showing no signs of slowing down as they enter series 12. In case you haven't heard there's a LEGO movie coming in February 2014 and this series consists of 16 characters from the movie. Unlike most movie figures I doubt if the movie were to bomb it would effect the figure sales in the slightest. Such is the popularity of LEGO. 

The series has a very colorful group of characters and a number of them are sure to be very popular among collectors. Here's what's in the lineup due out in January:

  • William Shakespeare
  • Gail the Construction Worker
  • Panda Guy
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Taco Tuesday Guy
  • Larry the Barista
  • President Business
  • Calamity Drone
  • Marsha Queen of the Mermaids
  • Wild West Wyldstyle
  • Scribbe-Face Bad Cop
  • Velma Staplebot
  • Hard Hat Emmet
  • “Where are my Pants?” Guy
  • Mrs. Scratchen-Post
  • Wiley Fusebot

I kinda want a Panda Guy...
