Good Smile Company's Shinsotsu blog has put out a call to all sculptors: the Sculptor's and Finisher's Try Outs are open for 2014! Once again, Good Smile is on the hunt for talent, and in this year's tryouts, there's two additional franchises you can submit sculpts from. KanColle and Sonico are joining the Vocaloid crew, Fate/stay night, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Dog Days, and Black Rock Shooter as themes you can work with, so expect more KanColle than you can shake your fist angrily at. There's also apparently an original character they'll need to sculpt as well in either Nendoroid or figma scale form.
There is a little caveat, of course: the tryouts are pretty much open to folks in Japan or Asia only, which means that I can't take part myself (not that I have any sculpting talents ...). Still, I'll be curious to see if any familiar names pop up working for GSC in the future, not unlike kiking's did a year or two ago.
That’s it. I’m sick of this snow (4 more inches yesterday), this cold (single digits coming again this weekend), and the never-ending grayness of winter. I’m ready to move almost anywhere but here! I’m thinking these creatures, who hail from the Teddy Bear Republic, must have it made. Bright colors, furry manes, contented faces – […]
Superman’s Fortress of Solitude by chevy2who Submit your Flickr photos to Poe Ghostal’s Pic of the Day!
The company took to Toy Fair 2014 to showcase its TheO SmartBall Jr. and brand-new TheO SmartDisk, two kid-friendly accessories that make playing with your phone or tablet a more tactile experience than ever. Originally a Kickstarter project, the SmartBall Jr. is an orange foam sphere that brings the classic Nerf ball to mind. The toy has a rectangular perforation in its center for your iPhone ...
Even if your toddler has been grasping an iPad since birth, learning her shapes on it, she still needs to learn from physical toys. Tech toymaker Tiggly has found a middle-ground between the two, by introducing two sets of iPad-ready learning toys that work with the brand's specialized apps. We received an up-close demonstration of Tiggly's $29 Shapes set, as well as a brand-new counting set ...
Toy Aisle Trolls is a feature highlighting acts of vandalism to in-store toy items. If you find a ruined package, a stolen figure, a swapped-out figure, or any other such acts, take a photo (cell phone photos are fine if they’re not blurry) and email them to email@example.com.

Kidrobot's blog has posted, in two parts, a quick tour of their Toy Fair wares for 2014. Some of their Toy Fair surprises were spoiled a little early (namely, the Mega Man and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lines), but even those we got a little more of a peek at. The initial TMNT line-up is Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, Splinter, Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang (in his exo-skeleton), and the Foot Soldier. The packaging seems to indicate they may be glow-in-the-dark, too.
Mega Man is pretty much as we've reported in the past, but the new surprise seems to be the DC Comics x Kidrobot mash-up that will bring both blind-boxed figures and mini-Labbits to a shop near you. There's also a teaser for what could be a Frank Kozik-designed Joker Labbit, too, and I think that would a.) be likely given the Marvel x Kidrobot crossover and b.) be really, really popular.
Also at the Kidrobot Toy Fair booth were two teases at upcoming figures: a new Kidrobot Black piece from Yury Ustsinau and a piece ... based on Snoop Dogg? We'll have a little more info on these soon, hopefully, but do you spot anything that catches your eye, Tomopop readers?
Funko has announced that they will launch a line of Hikari Japanese vinyl in Spring/Summer 2014. Hikari is a line of clear Sofubi vinyl inspired by Japanese vinyl figures. Each piece will be hand numbered and part of a limited edition. Hikari comes packaged in a special edition clear tube with an on/off LED light […]
New details are just in about the Transformers Age of Extinction Theatrical Trailer. Thanks to ComicBookMovie.com who have posted was they are saying is a " out a possible description of the trailer" for that is the follow up to the Super Bowl teaser trailer that we saw eariler this month. There is every reason to believe this could be fake as we have nothing to go on but the claims of the poster. Tead the full description with lots of potention spoilers. You have been warned.
Six years ago, I wrote an article in ToyFare #132 about the 1980s toy line Robo Force. It was developed by the CBS Toy Company (formerly Ideal, who, side note, created the original Teddy Bear). Like dozens of toy lines in the 1980s it came and went fairly quickly. In my interview in ToyFare with Robo Force […]
Thanks to Planet Iacon Facebook who have shared what appears to reveal details about Transformers: Age of Extinction characters who are no longer with the Universe. The image shows a matrix of characters who are marked as UNKNOWN (location), SLAIN and APPREHENDED. The list of 9 Transformers includes reveals their status based on the above markings. It is believed this could be Lockdown's bounty list, but this is not confirmed. NOTE: The while the source of the information is unknown, it could contain possible spoilers. Proceed at your own risk to read the list below.
Thanks to the official Takara Tomy Kre-O web site we have Episode 13 of the of the Transformers web comic. Follow along with those whacky block building bots in the latest story that features the usual the Autobots Vs Decepticon mayhem. As usual, Takara Tomy have included a couple of cameo character appearances. Can you find them all?
Andrew Wildman the artist behind the Marvel UK Transformers comics, and many more. Most recently he's been pushing his pen on the beginning and end of the Transformers Regeneration comic series that culminates with issue #100. He shares his feelings about working with other great talents such as Simon Furman and his history with the Marvel era spanning 80 issues, where Regeneration picked up at #81 to finish at #100 that will be out next month.
Edward Snowden: Hero. Traitor. Hero-traitor. Traitor-hero. Wherever you stand on the issue, the former NSA contractor and whistleblower was one of the most prominent names in 2013. While the CIA and NSA may have failed to get their hands on him, toy collectors now (kinda) have the opportunity since there's now an Edward Snowden figure.
Why does this exist? Because your Obama figure has been hiding some secrets from action figure constituents (gee, maybe this is why that Obama figure came with weapons...). That said, the Snowden figure itself is... underwhelming. The head looks like it was created via a 3D printer and subsequently the details look a little fuzzy. A standard 12-inch scale body was used, but no effort was made (via paint, etc) to adjust the color of his hands to match his face. While the figure isn't terrible, I was hoping for a more fitting tribute to the man who exposed massive government overreach and sparked a national debate.
For those interested in capturing a small piece of contemporary American history on their shelves (and one of the CIA's most wanted men), there are several purchasing options available from just buying the head for US$60 (we'll call that one the "CIA package") to the full figure in one of several costumes (including Edward Snowden as Indiana Jones because, well, Indiana Jones!), the cheapest of which is a US$99 "military brown outfit". The one pictured is the header is the "casual outfit" which will run you US$134.
Be warned, however: if you order one, it might take a while to reach you. Word is that it'll ship first to Hong Kong then hole up in a Russian airport for a few weeks.

((Additional warning: Purchasing this figure (or even looking at this post) may attract the attention of the NSA and/or get you on the FBI's no-fly list))
Thanks to our forums member TJ Duckett who has posted another one of his wonderful video reviews. Get the scoop on his latest video covering the Maketoys Trash-Talk and Cogwheel - Not Swerve and Gears action figures. Get the scoop on this duo of ultimate remakes of the G1 Mini-bot characters in the review below.
I HAD to track down images of The Loyal Subjects' Mighty Morphin Power Rangers mini figures - on display at New York Toy Fair (Feb 16-19.2014) - and finally found graphic image cut-out in lieu of actualized 3-dimensional figurines. Nevertheless, here is a lineup of who to expect for this blind-boxed series to view and plan your expenditure! No product nor availability details to share as yet, I'm afraid :p
Welcome to the Tomopop Etsy Tour, a brand-spanking new feature that will be appearing on the pages on Tomopop! Here we will look at the handmade toys found on Etsy, focusing on a specific theme each time.
In this inaugural post, the theme is Disney toys! Now, these can be from any Disney franchise, be it movies, television shows, theme parks, and well, just about anything the company has had a hand in. Read on to see (and perhaps purchase) what other folks have made!
This week is your last chance to see Supahcute Kaiju Show at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland! Mister Squid is hoping that you’ll visit him while you still can.
