Just under 37000 viewers joined us for the Wonhobby TV broadcast that took place at the new offices of Good Smile Company.
That night we had a load of industry guests including folks who brought us titles like Steins Gate, Muv Luv, Vanguard, Fate Zero, Madoka Magica and much much more.
After the Wonfes, it was back to base to prep all the broadcasting equipment - today we was going to broadcast on NicoNico and Ustream.
Heading over to the Good Smile offices. Time for some Ridge Racer music.
Arrival at Tokyo Sky Tree - the Good Smile offices are right next to it.
A few snaps outside.
Time to set up all the equipment and experience some of the traditional technical difficulties.
The big boss of Good Smile company Aki Takanori pops in n out throughout the evening.
Each NicoNico broadcast on an official channel involves quite a bit of equipment...
All set but I forgot the mini HDMI adapter...
One of our men rush over to Akihabara to fetch one.
Ustream broadcasting from the Mac - NicoNico from the main camera.
Finally up n running!
Good smile brought along a load of decoration masters for our viewers.
Caption this image.
Insane BRS sculpted by somebody based in the Good Smile Company Shanghai offices.
Speaking to one of the Project Managers. As part of his job, he has to play a load of games and watch a load of anime. While there are a load of characters that he personally wants to make into a figure, he obviously has to make the decision to make ones which sell.
This is Suzuki-san based in the Shanghai offices.
We had viewers from every single corner of the world!
There is a poll embedded in this article.
Aki pops in for a chat on the show.
The boss of Max Factory joins the broadcast!
Aki-san recommends Moekana for your Japanese learning needs!
The boss of Ufotable (Fate Zero, Madoka Magica etc) Kondo Hikaru joins us for some industry talk.
That dish from TariTari!
Signing off - over and out!
Still a few bits n pieces to sort out - Red Bull keeps us going.
Here is a view from the offices that we forgot to show the viewers ><
Meanwhile in the main office, the Japanese broadcast continues.
I was supposed to join this broadcast but didn't make it in time ><
Table full of decoration masters yet to be manufactured.
Quick wander around the office to chat with comrades.
You probably know about the racing cars that come with nendoroids by now.
Ah! Saber getting ready to roll.
Tokyo Otaku Mode have nearly 6 million likes on Facebook!
This work is fun but I tell you it does take a toll on the body. Its not all roses.
4AM - about to leave the offices.
The sun rises on the way home on a Monday morning - yep, I need to be up in a couple of hours to start work again ^^;

It has been quite some time since I bought (or even found) any Clone Wars figure. With Hasbro’s resources stretched thin between all of their lines in production, in 2012 we are not getting as much Clone Wars product as last year and some of the figures shipping in 2012 are re-issued from last year.
Hot Toys has released images of their upcoming The Avengers 1/6 scale Hulk action figure! Scheduled for release during the first quarter of 2013. Click through for the product information and full gallery.
When I was young, and my family would go out to look at the stars at night up north, I for some reason always volunteered to be the person to carry the flashlight and lead the way. It was really great, with my mom bellowing in the background because she couldn’t see, my sister having [...]
Kronk is at it again with another new original figure with Kidrobot. Take a look at this hookah wielding Dragon, best known as Dweezil. This figure stands 15” tall and will be available in two color variants. Both the red and the blue editions are limited to 300 pieces each...
The cardback design for National Entertainment Collectibles Association's "Prometheus" action figure line has surfaced. Click the thumbnail above for a closer look.
Gentle Giant has sent along new images of their newly upgraded deluxe Red Skull mini bust. Click through for the full gallery.
Might I just say wow! As KAWS just posted this photo of his next release, Companion: Resting Place. Where he takes his infamous KAWS Companion figure and gives him a break from all that standing. No price, no date, or specific measurements at the moment, but as soon as we...
Jazwares has released prototype images of their upcoming line of Super-Deformed Mortal Kombat figures. Included in the images are Scorpion, Kabal, Shao Khan, and Quan Chi. Each figure will stand 2.75" tall. Click the thumbnails above for a closer look.

You’re smart to be looking for Rage of Bahamut tips, since it’s a competitive game filled with hardcore gamers whipping your face with their stacked deck. Rage of Bahamut is the “rage” right now in the mobile gaming world, as it’s available on both iOS and Android. (At a few million users, it is the number one grossing app in iTunes at the writing of this post.) I’m assuming that if you’ve gotten to this article, you already know the very basic ...
So below is a series of Poppy's photos specially treated for your pleasure. Hope you like her as much as I do.
McFarlane Toys Curse Of The Spawn Resin Statue - Unpainted Artist's Proof
FLCL fan art by Drake Tsui (a.k.a. Quirkilicious).
She's finally unwrapped and out of her box. I am loving her.
I am looking forward to photographing her with a good camera.
They are a part of Japanese daily life and help us make decisions when choosing what to eat - plastic food samples! They are traditionally displayed in shop windows - shop owners would send in photos of their dishes to a factory where they are rendered in plastic form - plastic has never looked so tasty!
But did you know that you can buy then for yourself too? As part of the Japan Mode filming, we went to visit a shop called Maizuru in Kappabashi where folks like you and I can go along and buy some plastic food samples.
To get to Maizuru, get off at Asakusa on the Ginza or Asakusa line and walk to the following location.
Nishiasakusa 1-5-17, Taito-ku, Tokyo
The Kappabashi area is filled with shops dedicated to kitchenware - great for those who cook and who run restaurants too.
*everything* you see in this shop is made of plastic!
How about a plate of fly lice? 6,300 yen
If you are a doll owner then this place is very dangerous - expect to leave with heavy damage to wallet-kun.
"Tokyo Sky Tree Tempura"
Felt so hungry after filming so dropped by Tokyo Sky Tree for some nom noms - and take a gander at more plastic food samples ^^;
Not food - but so cute that you want to eat it.
