So, unless you guys are huge jerks and enjoy missing out being kept up-to-date on awesome things, Tomopop is still the bees knees. Aside from making me want to commit crimes to afford expensive pieces of plastic, they also have some pretty cool editorial features and tight C-blogs on all things "toy-ish".
Recently, Tomopop's own Scott Kremer returned from Japan and thankfully he's brought a little bit back with him in an editorial explaining his visit to Good Smile Cafe, a themed cafe owned by, you guessed it, Goodsmile Company... distributor of high quality scaled-figurine product lines like Nendoroid and (the honestly scary looking) joint/articulation figure Figma, to only name a couple. If you've considered looking at any kind of anime figure, then you've probably come across a couple of these.
Anyway, the article can be found here, where Scott talks about the cafe as it was in its Puella Magi Madoka Magica theme, and it actually really is a good read if you're into anything related to Goodsmile, anime or Japan... which I imagine is a large majority of people here.
Also, in case you're still unsure, Tomopop is still a really awesome website. That's all...
