Dinobots SLUDGE and SNARL take on KICKBACKs Insecticon hordes in the caverns below Cybertron. The official page sat down with writer Mairghread Scott to get some insight into first few pages!

Back in 2007's Dunny Azteca series, The Beast Brothers had a Quetzalcoatl Dunny among the figures that was a pretty neat design. Six years later, it's back and bigger: the brothers are releasing an 8-inch version of their Quetzalcoatl Dunny as a limited-run custom collectible. It sports the same details and green coloring, just made a lot bigger. These little guys will also come wearing a faux leather ponchi, and be packed inside a laser-engraved wooden box.
If you want one of them, you can pick one up in The Beast Brothers' shop on June 21 at 1 p.m. Eastern (5 p.m. GMT, 10 a.m. Pacific) for US$450, plus shipping and handling. The order period is going to be or 24 hours only, so there's not a lot of time to sit around and decide if you want one or not!
Those teenage “heroes in a half-shell” are back, and their pizza-slinging and sewer-crawling skills are better than ever. As a child of the late 80s and early 90s, I was a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and all their Southern California-inspired catch phrases—from “cowabunga” to “tubuloso.” Lucky for me, if I’m in [...]
Now, what could be cooler than The Creature From The Black Lagoon 9-inch figure (Black & White Variant) figure we just showed you? Channeling warm Remco childhood memories, Mezco Toyz has the easy answer to that question: The Creature From The Black Lagoon 9-inch figure (Glow-In-The-Dark Variant). Click through to find out more!
The rumblings are true. The Beast Brothers have announced their latest limited-edition custom and it's sure to please Dunny Azteca fans. Their upcoming 8" limited-edition custom Quetzalcoatl recreates the magic of the 3" production piece from the popular '07 blindbox series. As you can see, this new large format features...
Another year, another new Gundam project. The next project, rumored following the discovery of a web domain registration by Sunrise, has now been confirmed. The new series, Gundam BF, has no details except for the intro Gundam. The website is live, teasing its full opening on July 2nd. The tagline features the line "1/144 Gundam mobile." Is this another Gunpla anime or some other form of project.
The design to me is very SEED inspired, with traces of the Strike and Freedom Gundams pointing out at me. I'm excited to see what this might come of this. The design seems interesting enough and I like the head. Let's just see how this will all turn out on July 2nd.

Danny Choo is working on a a project that might make doll fans out of tech geeks. Built from the ground up his project, dubbed the Smart Doll (NSFW!), features custom software, 24 servomotors, and touch sensors. Yep, touch sensors, just let your mind wander on that last part. It'll also include ultrasound, visual, acoustic and location sensors, all hidden within the doll itself. The internal workings of the body will be capable of controlling the legs, torso, shoulders, and neck. Safe to say this is going to be an extremely interactive doll when it's complete.
It's quite the undertaking, but Danny is thinking big. The project is about 70% complete at this prototype stage and he's already planning ahead for mass production. Knowing how many hundreds of US dollars his dolls normally go for I can only imagine what this kind of interactivity will cost. He's planning some regular updates so stay tuned for more.
Beginning tomorrow, June 13 through Saturday, June 15, a special Friends and Family Shopping Event is happening at all Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us stores nationwide.

Wave's 1/10 Beach Queens Noumi Kudryavka (Little Busters!) is currently available for pre-order.
The figure features a fantastic head-sculpt and hair that, along with the pose, drives home the character's inherent cuteness... up until you take a good, hard look at that bathing suit and notice that arguably indecent top.
Wave's Beach Queens line has so often straddled the line of taste, occasionally putting younger characters in almost scandalous bathing suits. I know Noumi has little to no cleavage, but is that really an excuse for little to no bathing suit?
Assuming that you don't find the razor-thin top too distracting (in that it can change the vibe from cute to a little creepy), Beach Queens Noumi Kudryavka otherwise seems like a fantastic figure. She's adorable, the pose conveys a lot of energy, and she's sure to brighten up any shelf in your home... well, any shelf not immediately in sight of guests. Wave's Beach Queens Noumi Kudryavka is slated to release in October and is listed at ¥3,800.
3DRetro will release their brand new Creamy vinyl figure from Gary Baseman @ SDCC in an exclusive glow in the dark edition. Based on one of Gary's classic paintings, the GID edition stands 5" tall and is limited to 200 pieces. It will be available at the 3DRetro / Frank...

We've been waiting, and the time has finally come; Sailor Mercury is finally painted!
Seen at the Tokyo Toy Fair, the newly painted Sailor Mercury made her debut. Standing next to Sailor Moon and Luna, Sailor Mercury will be the second S.H. Figuarts figure in the Sailor Moon series from Bandai.
The Tokyo Toy Fair is still under way, so I'm sure more surprises will come.

Oh man! So me and my special lady took the 5am bus from Reading, PA to New York City this past Saturday for the Animal Crossing New Leaf launch event and holy geeze was is fun!
