Chris is one of the many tomopop writers. While often hibernating (even in the summer), this creature will often arise from his slumber to cover some of the more niche parts of the japanese figure market. Primarily a fan of garage kits, this creature will be more likely to be found covering companies such as Volks and is especially active during Japanese figure events like Wonder Festival.

It's two main weaknesses are a strong disdain for (almost) anything Black Rock Shooter related and apathy for most poseable figure lines and a near irrational hatred of things K-ON!... It's three main weaknesses are a strong disdain for (almost) anything Black Rock Shooter related, apathy for most poseable figure lines, a near irrational hatred of things K-ON! and an almost fanatical love for Sheryl Nome... Aww heck!!!
