SDCC 2014: J*RYU talks about the Hatchling photo
SDCC 2014: J*RYU talks about the Hatchling
by Pedro Cortes

At the end of last year, the Tomopop editors voted VampyBitMe and J*RYU's Hatchling as best designer figure of 2013. No surprise, as it still is an amazing work of art that just about any game would love to have on their shelf, table, desk, etc.

Walking around on the San Diego Comic Con floor, we happened to bump into J*RYU and got a chance to ask him a couple of questions about his winning figures, as well as the mini-Hatchlings he had on hand for purchase.

C-3PO wields a giant gun in new LEGO Star Wars special

I'd hazard a guess and say LEGO Star Wars may be responsible for the resurgence of the building block toys that we all love. The games were good, simple fun that could be shared with the younglings, which eventually lead to ...

Watch this adorable preview of Nendoroid Ozawa Rina and Nameko
by Kristina Pino

The folks at Nameko Paradise blog had an opportunity to handle GSC's decomaster of Nendoroid Ozawa Rina, to adorable results. The host of the video walks us through her various signature poses with Nameko as illustrated on book and game covers.

There isn't much more to say except that it's delightful - I've been in love with this figure's design since we first started seeing her around, since she translates perfectly into Nendoroid form.

I've also included a few images in the gallery below from their blog (click through for more), with detailed looks at the figures. Enjoy!
