Seven days. That's all you have left after starting to read this story unless, of course, you share it with somebody else who reads it (just make sure they ACTUALLY read it, because sometimes people lie about watching... errr, reading just to see what happens).
Sound crazy? Well, it's not as crazy as the news that Bandai will be making a S.H. Figuarts version of Sadako Yamamura (US: Samara) from the iconic Ringu (US: The Ring) horror movies. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Friends, it's no great secret that your ol' buddy, the Scarecroodle, loves Asian horror whether it be the highly addictive Tales of Terror from Tokyo and All Over Japan to the Korean war horror R-Point or even the supernatural anime Ghost Hunt (why? Why is there no second season?!). While Ringu (as well as Ju-on...) has never been one of my favorites, it'll be exciting to see Sadako in an articulated format just for all the creepy scenes you can reenact (please, Bandai, include a tv!). You better believe that we here at Tomopop will be looking around like crazy for Sadako news so it doesn't sneak up behind us.

One up is releasing several exclusives for their OneFes including an unpaint Neon Pink Gizalla from Gumliens. The latest edition of the 4.3” sofubi figure follows the Neon Green and Neon Orange editions which were released last year’s winter Designfesta. The pink editions drops on 2.8 from One up’s shop...
The older I get, the more I like cute and creepy stuff. I’m not sure what that says about me. So when you combine that and my love of blind box figures, I couldn’t pass by the Living Dead Dolls Minis. The first one I picked was this guy, Schitzo. This is the regular version, […]
Looks impressive and cute … Also a nice interview with Julie Bowen who voices Dipper. Other characters and diecast listing here. Tweet This Post
The Moonlight Butterfly is the most destructive attack in all of the Gundam metaverse. Those beautiful wings of energy will make every piece of technology useless from here to Jupiter. Since their debut, people have asked for them to be included with the Gunpla, but only to find them with a special exclusive release for the Robot Damashii. Now they will finally be made available for the upcoming HGCC Turn A Gundam. Just like the Robot Damashii though, they'll be embargoed behind the Premium Bandai Shop.
For the price of ¥1,728 yen plus proxy fees, you can add the Moonlight Butterfly to your HGCC Turn A. I've tried to come up with ways to do it myself, as have others, but none of these solutions has really satisfied me. I'm finding myself having to need this, especially as a fan of the design of the Turn A. I'll just need to be finding a seller that won't gouge my eyes out for it. I've got until May to find one, so hopefully there's a soul out there who won't charge me for mine for it.
Gavin loves playing in the sand at the beach digging huge holes, and now that we are in the throes of winter, having just received another 8 inches of snow, aside from sleds and a shovel, until now we didn’t really have any dedicated snow toys. I could have kissed the UPS Delivery man when […]

Kasey Tararuj AKA One Eyed Girl shares with us her latest piece done for the "It Came From 1984" Show at Bottleneck Gallery, opening Feb 7.2014 - looking exceedingly awesome!
"My piece is inspired by the 1984 film The Neverending Story, focusing on the beautiful Childlike Empress and the mystical Falcor. The piece is fully sculpted with Magic Sculpt and topped off with glass eyes and acrylic paint."
Check out further close-up images of this splendid 3D artwork! As well check out her Facebook and Instagram @kctararuj
Super7 will debut their new "Super7 Super Soapeez™" toy line at the weekend Kirk von Hammett’s Fear Festival, with S7 x KvH Nosferatu Resin Figure.
"Created in the style of the classic Universal Monsters Soakies, the Super Soapeez™ Nosferatu features one of the earliest classic horror icons to grace the silver screen, the super spooky Count Orlock!"This resin cast Prototype Edition stands 10" tall, with this resin figure come packaged in a deluxe gift box and limited to an edition of 50 pieces, priced at US$150 each. Additionally, Kirk Hammett himself will be available to sign the figure at the event.
Entertainment Earth has posted a whole bunch of listings and photos of the expanded ReAction line. The Funko-Super7 collab started with the Alien figures released last year and is expanding to pretty much your entire childhood: Predator, the Terminator franchise, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Escape from New York, The Rocketeer, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Goonies, Universal Monsters, Pulp Fiction, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th are all among those joining the 3.75-inch figure line.
To me, it seems Funko's supplying a lot of the licensing muscle with the ReAction line (most of the licenses are ones they already have for their Pop! vinyl series) while Super7 is handling the production side of things, which given their product quality is a pretty good thing.
The figures currently have release dates ranging from April to October and are retailing at US$9.99 each. What's your thoughts on the expanded line and the figures revealed so far, Tomopop readers?
Wow, I’m looking back at this week and realizing I spent a huge chunk of my time making stuff. How cool is that? It was one of my goals for this year, and I’m already working it out. You saw my Printable Valentines for this year, and I also finished the next house in The […]
PRODUCT PRESS: "Ron English releases his newest Cereal Killer designer vinyl figure: Yucky Children Charmer, the pot belly at the end of every rainbow!
As another unnamed leprechaun celebrates 50 years of peddling magical consequence-free sugar, Yucky basks in the effects of consuming his own product. Added bonus: this leprechaun is fat enough to catch!
The fourth member of the Last Fat Breakfast to be released, Yucky joins his apostle brethren Fat Tony, Cap’n Cornstarch and Count Calorie. Collect them all, but remember, these are not recommended for human consumption: this is hifalutin fine art!"
Last seen was a sculpt for this 8” tall vinyl, whom since will be available by St. Patricks Day 2014 (circa March 17th this year), so do check in with your fav retailers for price.
One of my most popular e-patterns continues to be "Elmer's Little Boy." It's not difficult to see why that is. He's just so cute you just want to squeeze him. As a result, he gets squeezed a lot.
Elmer's Little Boy" is so cute you just want to squeeze him. With a big pot belly and big ears he has loads of charm. Worse - he knows it and uses it to his every advantage. He can charm them young, he can charm them old, male or female. It doesn't matter. They all succumb to his charm and that impish gleam in his eyes.
"Elmer's Little Boy" has a cloth head and body. His face is embroidered and he has a mass of freckles along his cheeks and his nose. Elmer has a lined double breasted vest decorated with a double row of buttons, bow tie, rolled cuff shirt, velour pantaloons, black & white shoes, lined cap and uncontrollable wild brown hair.

If you'd like to know the story behind his creation please read the story below:
Here's the story behind "Elmer's Little Boy"..... My sister-in-laws parents who are in their 80's recently had a yard sale because they were moving into a much smaller house. Elmer (my sister-in-laws father) had an old plastic kewpie doll that had previously belonged to his deceased sister that he had kept I think in his toolbox (I might have that wrong).
In any event, he had held on to this doll for over many, many years. The only problem with the doll was that it had no clothes. He was going to throw it away but decided instead to give it to me. I was touched as I got the sense that this doll had a lot of sentimental value for him.
In any event, I decided to take it home and design some clothes for it. I wanted an early american little boy look so I decided on pantaloons, a vest, shirt, and scully cap. Since I had already designed the clothes for his kewpie I decided to design a cloth doll as well.
A little while later I took the plastic kewpie doll (with his new clothes) back to Elmer. Elmer was thrilled. It touched my heart to see how happy he was with my gift. Elmer's kewpie doll now sits proudly on the top of his bureau (I think).
I named my cloth pattern Elmer's Little Boy after Elmer's plastic kewpie doll. Elmers Original Kewpie is shown above and my Elmers Little Boy cloth version is shown below. The clothes for both dolls were made from some of Elmer's old clothes that I had gotten from his yard sale. I hope you like both dolls.
My Version of "Elmer's Little Boy" is shown in the pictures above and to the right.

Gosh but there was a quite a number of pieces I would have loved to pick up tho!

Shortly before she and her family went into hiding, Anne Frank gave some of her toys to a friend for safekeeping -- a tin of marbles, a tea set and a book.
Normally the teasers we get out of companies ahead of major events are tough but not indecipherable. Max Factory's figma custodians clearly had other plans though, as they've released two new figures to be unveiled at Wonder Festival that are so heavily pixelated it's nigh impossible to tell what's underneath the censoring.
You should never underestimate the vast power of gathered toy nerds however, and the internet braintrust has managed to spit out some answers to this puzzle. Perhaps unsurprisingly one is figma Ryuko Matoi, rocking her barely-there battle outfit. The other is a return to old faithful, as it looks to be yet another Hatsune Miku, this time in her 'Wolf Girl' outfit from Project Diva. The blog also offers up a third, uncensored new figma, Hazuki Mizuhara from Toushin Toshi II.
I think figma Ryuko is pretty much a lock, given how the colours in the silhouette look. I'm not so sure about Miku however, and I think that could yet turn out to be a different character. Still, all will be revealed in the next few days.
