Diamond Select Toys boldly goes where many an action-figure company has gone before with its tribute to the "Star Trek" universe. The Maryland-based company has teamed up with Art Asylum to deliver a wide range of pop culture items tied to the original 1960s television series. Besides scaled versions of ...
With a wide variety of licensed products, the Gentle Giant booth was an interesting walk through. Star Wars, The Hobbit, Marvel and The Walking Dead get some interesting new statues and busts that you can get your hands on in the near future.
Personally, I'm digging some of those old-style Star Wars figures. While figures have vastly changed since the days of those old things, there's a nice kitsch factor in seeing them pop up again. Oh, and that live-size Kenner Stormtrooper? That's not just a model for the booth; that bad boy is real. It even has articulation and a blaster accessory! With a price tag between $1,500 and $2,000, I'm pretty sure that's going to make somebody with some deep products very happy.
The other things that tickled my fancy were the Iron Man suits. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a robot. The Zombie Magneto in the gallery below will be a New York Comic Con exclusive, so expect a ton of people to line up and buy him later this year. You'll also be able to get the Iron Patriot bust exclusively at Amazon, so swing by the online mega-shop if you want to order him.
Yamato had a tremendous showing at SDCC this year and showed off a few prototypes. Also they had some A+ models which should be coming to stores soon. Also at the booth was last year's 50cm tall Cat woman collectible which still deserves a second look.
Some of the more interesting models in the gallery were of Lilith and LUZ who are from a book series called Malefic Time. I'm not sure what the series is about to be honest, but it looks like something I would have read in my younger years. Still the basic character design and mature look of these two ladies catches my eye.
There was an A+ Queens Blade Rebellion Brawen statue as well as an A+ Haruka from Senran Kagura. Both of these are going to be coming to stores very soon. Also while their images are in the gallery I would like to say that there are some pictures of them in there that are "Kind of not safe for work."
It wasn't all girls though, Yamato's Kawasaki Z1 1972 candy brown motorbike model stole a little corner spotlight. The bike is very pretty with a top notch paint job. I wish I had one of those when I was a kid
I have uploaded some of the SDCC photos from our coverage for today (Saturday). The new photos includes NECA, Kotobukiya, the Hasbro Marvel Panel and Play Imaginative. I will be uploading photos from...

DC Comics’ clown princess of chaos, the incomparable Harley Quinn, makes her long-awaited debut in Sideshow Collectibles’ Sixth Scale figure line. Dressed to kill in a detailed fabric bodysuit, fitted corset and jester tights, the charmingly psychotic super villain is ready to hit the town, wreaking her special brand of havoc on the unsuspecting citizens [...]
Aliens, cowboys, superheroes, mecha, the undead, monsters, and other such oddities once again found a home at NECA's very eclectic booth. Highlights included a first look at the Simpsons "25 of the Greatest Guest Stars" figurines, new Gremlins merchandise (!), Yu-Gi-Oh! figurines, skeletal Star Trek characters, and merchandise for recent (and not so recent) films.
Hit the jump for the full details.
AUTOart is famous for their 1/18 scale high end die-cast model cars, and now they are coming out with the “Project D Ver” Toyota AE-86 based from the hit animation Initial D! Toy Garden and Toywiz Malaysia will be taking preorder now for this limited edition Toyota Sprinter Trueno, which scheduled to be released around [...]
Kotobukiya's booth at this year's San Diego Comic Con was like a four-sided gallery of beautiful new figures, peppered with teaser placards for ones that have yet to be seen. It was all very exciting! Let's start with some of the new figures on display. Star Wars was a big license at the booth, starting with the new1/10-scale Sand Trooper 2-pack as well as the Sand Sergeant, both coming in 2014. Four of the classic characters from the series will also be getting 2-packs in 2014, Luke and Leia as well as a pairing of Han Solo and Chewbacca. You can see their teaser placards in the post's gallery. Kotobukiya will be having a booth at this year's New York Comic Con and the R2-Q5 will be one of the exclusives and come with a collector's coin. It will be available for pre-order.
Another new license recently acquired by Kotobukiya was The Avengers. They even commissioned the comic artist! The Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, Ironman, Thor, and Hawkeye are part of this series. Pricing for this line has yet to be determined. They also acquired the Halo license for Art-Fx and Art-Fx+ figures. No Bishoujo figures are planned for this series. The Batman Arkham City and Arkham Origins figures will have bases, something not seen in Art-Fx. And, the final Justice League piece was also revealed at the booth. It will be Cyborg.
Moving onto Japanese licenses, Street Fighter's Cammi and Tekken's Jun Kazama will be getting the Bishoujo treatment. They had the prototype for Jun but only a placard for Cammi at the booth. For all of you enamored with Art-FX Gunman in Black ver. of Trigun's Vash the Stampede, the Kotobukiya US online store will have it available for pre-order "soon." No need to import! You will notice the Yu-Gi-Oh Dark Magician figure in our gallery. Well, Kotobukiya will also be releasing a flesh-tone version to match the character in the anime.
This is a whole lot of news to take in, for sure. After you've caught your breath, stay tuned to Tomopop for more SDCC coverage!

When Coarse began discussing their comic-con plans with Rotofugi, it was decided that a single 10 x 10 booth wouldn’t accommodate the release of not one, but three new limited-edition vinyl sculpture offerings. Rather than simply moving the release to an external venue , Coarse decided that they would use...
Sideshow has a high end Mike & Sulley Monsters University display statue … If you like the girls of Spiderman more woman than girlish … From NECA … all in one case … probably the weirdest case assortment in the history of case assortments. There are 3 more guest stars un-announced in this case. [...]

Evangelion fans didn't have much to cheer for at SDCC, as the franchise went woefully underrepresented. As far as I know, there was just a single art book at Udon's booth and a handful of small-scale figures at Bluefin's booth. You'd think with there being a new(ish) movie and all, there would be more Eva merchandise. But maybe those are best saved for another event (Wonder Festival, anyone?).
Bandai's Evangelion Portraits line did have a small showing at Bluefin's booth, as I mentioned. It consists of four of the pilots featured in Evangelion 3.0: Kaworu, Asuka, Shinji, and Rei. Asuka and Rei were rocking their new plug suits while Kaworu and Shinji looked unremarkable in their school uniforms. Mari was MIA, to my disappointment.
The other group of Eva figures has some mild spoilers, so stop reading now if you're avoiding Evangelion 3.0 spoilers.
Plush toy maker and lifestyle gift creator Bestever has licensed its animal-themed Baby Mat line to Mary Meyer Stuffed Toys. Mary Meyer will bring the Baby Mat line to the gift and specialty market nationwide. Mary Meyer is a family-owned-and-operated stuffed toy company, and this marks the company’s 80th year. The Baby Mats are machine [...]
Well, the con is winding down, and everybody’s shared all their secrets. Since I am currently embroiled in an illicit affair with NECA (or so my critics say!), I feel I should give my final thoughts on their reveals this week. First off, there was a lot of unexpected stuff. Sure, we got to see [...]
“The Star Spangled Man with a Plan”. It was a memorable and entertaining moment to see Captain America performing during this catchy song in Captain America: The First Avengers. As it was a rather notable scene in the film, we are excited to introduce the 1/6th scale Captain America (Star Spangled Man Version) Limited Edition [...]
