About
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.

Its main weakness is a strong disdain for (almost) anything Black Rock Shooter related. Disdain for BRS and apathy for most poseable figure lines... 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!!!

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Video Game Garage Kits

Next up, we have the video game garage kit gallery! It's a pretty random mix of figures this time around but I think we can agree that the liquid snake painted to resemble the original oil artwork by Shinkawa Yoji is really i...   more

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Aquamarine

Just look at the banner!! There's a figure of Chaika from Hitsugi no Chaika! That should be all you need from the Aquamarine booth! But in the interest of fairness, there are a few other items worthy of note on display as wel...   more
