Hi Tomopeeps! I've been collecting figurines for about three years now! I would not have begun collecting if I had not stumbled upon Tomopop a few years back.

An editor had reviewed a figurine of one of my favorite characters. Azusa Nakano by Alter and after I read their review I just had to have her!

So I started taking photos of my figurines and collecting more and more characters that I love till i filled up two big shelves. Shortly after I pleaded with Kristina to let me post my articles on the main page, after much pestering here I am!

Preview Griffon's Tony Taka Shannon

It's been a little over a month since pre-orders opened for Griffon's Shannon. Much to our surprise, she was due to be released at the end of January, which is a pretty short production cycle for any figurine. Still Akibahobb...

Preview MegaHouse's G.E.M. Utena

Revolutionary Girl Utena was one of the first long running anime that I watched when I was younger. Looking back it dealt with some pretty mature concepts and was likely the first show that I saw that had some shoujo ai in it...

Nendoroid More Pajamas finally get displayed on bodies

I was pleased when GSC first announced Nendoroid More Pajamas back in September. It feels like it has been longer since then but really it has just been around two months. After much teasing GSC is finally showing off on...
