Tomopop Review: figma Append Miku by Max Factory

Way back when the garage kit/soon to be PVC statue of Append Miku was teased, I admit I was torn. While I was absolutely in love with the more robotic, modern take on our favorite software mascot, the face threw me off. I'm p...

NSFW: Queen's Blade and Hyakka Ryouran take it to the beach in these new scans!

I love Queen's Blade, Tomopop. But not for the reason most people do. No, I love the over the top borderline-hentai show for the fantastic character designs. So I always get excited when I see new figures coming out, and boy ...

New Bent World mini figures tempt me with mischief!

Graffiti art is one of those things I think every artist has thought about at one point. When done right it can portray such a powerful message, and at its worse it can be incredibly obnoxious and stupid. But there is really ...

NYCC 2011: Kidrobot

NSFW: Kidrobot Black's Lilitu leaves me breathless

I've always been one for minimalist design, which is the reason KidRobot's Black line has been so appealing to me. The simple dark forms often portray more of an art piece then the standard vinyl figure. So of course, when I ...

Nebulon5's Bug-a-Boo Androids leave me buzzing!

Super7 shows off their new Big Sal and Foster

I'm not gonna beat around the bush here: I normally really dislike kaiju. While some of the sculpts can be really detailed and interesting, the paint jobs just tend to kill it for me. That being said though, I love Super7's w...

Now your Append Miku can rock out with these new headphones!
