It’s been clear for a while now that if NECA gets to a Series 3 of Pacific Rim, Cherno Alpha (my personal favorite Jaeger, and that of many others) will be a part of it. Here’s the first bit of good news: Planning Wave 3 of Pacific Rim right now along with more 18″. As long [...]
Gallery Nucleus and Nickelodeon have partnered up to present a tribute to our absorbent, yellow and porous friend, SpongeBob. ‘Nautical Nonsense: A Tribute to SpongeBob SquarePants‘ opens this Saturday, July 27 with a reception from 7-11pm. In addition to original … Continue reading →
Thanks to Alfes 2010 who has posted yet another one of his fantastic image galleries for the Takara Tomy's Transformers Go! G05 Gekisoumaru action figure. Get a look at the Swordbot Shinobi member figure that features light up eyes, light-piping and electronic sounds. Check out some images from the gallery below for more details on this new released Japan exclusive figure.
Toy Art Gallery's upcoming custom show features artist customizing Paul Frank's Julius vinyl. The event opens on Saturday August 3rd 2013, and we're already starting to see some of the customs being revealed. This one is from Plaseebo. Bob Conge is calling his creation the "Mummy Julius".
The Moebius Models booth had its expected array of neat collectibles. Some of the items on display included:
It's worth noting that some of the selections were for sale as finished kits, which are perfect for those who admire models yet lack the time (or savvy) to build and paint them. Be sure to check out the photo gallery.
Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #19 by James Roberts, Alex Milne & Sean Chen - BETRAYAL! The Lost Light may be occupied by enemy forces, but thats the least of RODIMUS problems! As he awaits execution, the one-time Matrix holder realizes how little he knows about the people he once called friends. Is there anyone left he can trust? And where does the legendary STAR SABER fit into all this?
Entertainment Earth had some exclusives on display at its SDCC booth as well as general product. The exclusives included Venture Bros. figures (including a blood-soaked, naked Brock Samson because, you know, apparently there's a market for something like that), a vintage Batman t-shirt version of a MEGO-styled Sheldon (Big Bang Theory), a gold Cyclon Commander Bobblehead that features light and sound, and a blood slide Dexter.
The non-exclusives included a ton of MEGO-like figures for Doctor Who (including a Silent), The Venture Bros., Big Bang Theory, and others. There were also prop replicas on display for the classic version of the Twilight Zone, such as Talking Tina ("The Doll") and The Mystic Seer ("Nick of Time"). Then there's the whole Star Trek: The Next Generation crew in bobblehead form.
Check out the gallery for all that and more.

G.I. Joe has turned up at SDCC once again with a continually dwindling presence. It's a solid toy line at a good price, but the troubles the second movie caused the toy line appear to be more than they can recover from. Hasbro got stuck with a warehouse full of toys they couldn't release after the initial wave and when the movie finally got released retailer and consumer interest wasn't all there. Though the sea of Stormshadow and Roadblock figures probably didn't help.
That's my take on the current status of the G.I. Joe line anyway; though dropping some articulation from certain figures and alienating fans by constantly pushing back fan-favorites characters in favor of another Snake-Eyes or two didn't help either.
But SDCC did host a few new figures that will be released soon. The newest set of figures shown were given a strangely specific sales date of "9/13/13". If that's a joke it's going over my head, it doesn't seem to coincide with anything. Figures released in this series include the long, long delayed Kwinn figure which first appeared at JoeCon in 2011. We'll also finally see the release of Ultimate Flint, Ultimate Roadblock, Budo, and a new Stormshadow figure made to look like the original. Interestingly enough the Budo figure was delayed enough that the Bludgeon figure from the SDCC exclusive G.I.Joe/Transformers figure set used the body first.
There's also one more vehicle set in the pipe. The Ninja Combat Cruiser doesn't have a release date given, but appears to be turning up in stores. It comes with a Night Fox figure with very limited articulation. That looks to be basically the last hurrah for the line until Hasbro figures out a way to bring it back to greatness again.
Just a quick report on the BATMAN: ARKHAM ORIGINS Video Game. The current issue of XBOX MAGAZINE has an incredible cover of the Joker! Also, inside, they released the news of a new villain to the game, the Mad Hatter!! Don't believe us? Well, check out the cool pic down below! (Click on it for a larger version)
BATMAN TOY COLLECTOR NEWS - The other day the MEGO MUSEUM website revealed that the 3rd wave of figures from the Figures Toy Co. will include a Removable Cowl Batman, Removable Mask Robin, Removable Cowl Batgirl, and... the well-trusted Butler, Alfred Pennyworth! Wow! Alfred is gonna be a "Mego Doll", AWESOME!!
There is no exact release date set yet but stay tuned to the BAT-BLOG for all your Batman Toy Collecting info! Hey, once we know, YOU know!
Accel World's "Madame Butterfly" Kuroyukihime has been the subject of more than a few rather naughty figures, and it looks like the streak isn't stopping anytime soon thanks to the capable hands of Chara-Ani's sculptors. Castoffable characters not from eroge aren't exactly common, but that's what you'll get with the latest Kuroyukihime, with viewers able to strip off her already-crumpled dress to get a look at the goods.
Thankfully, Chara-Ani did a fine job at such a tiny scale, and there's no way I'm complaining about the nice view of her bare back and those low-slung bottoms! She's got her wings left in place as well, giving the stripped down queen an almost fairy-like look, if a rather naughty one.
Of course there's still plenty to offer even for those not quite as lascivious as I. Even slightly dressed, Kuroyukihime looks great, and the effect is completed with her ever present gloves and parasol. While there's no denying some quality was lost given the scale, Chara-Ani seems to have packed a lot of detail into a tiny package. Unfortunately, this means you'll still be paying about ¥8,280 to pick her up in October.
With three weeks to go, the MOTUC and DC subscriptions aren’t in great shape – especially considering we’re nearly a week past the SDCC reveals. Before we go further, how about a trip down memory lane? Poe’s Point > Obligatory Club Infinite Earths Post (July 28, 2011) Mattel Updates on the 2012 MOTUC Subscription (August 4, [...]
Check out this great fan-made video featuring the Dark Knight's famous signature line, "I'm Batman", delivered by some of the actors who have played him over the years. The editing is awesome and it's also pretty fun to listen to!
If there is one anime that has been getting a lot of buzz this season, it's KyoAni's new sports themed series Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club. With the immense popularity the show has garnered in just its first four weeks since airing, I'm sure a lot of companies were trying to get a hold of this license. Fans will be thrilled to know that ALTAiR, along with Hobby Stock recently announced that it would be making an 1/8 figure of Iwatobi's Swim Club resident merman, Nanase Haruka. Now you'll just have to excuse me a moment as I try to contain myself.
I can't wait to see what ALTAiR has up their sleeve for Haru's sculpt, but knowing them I'm sure it's bound to be amazing. While I would love to see Haru in a dynamic pose wearing his swimsuit, I wouldn't mind seeing him dressed in his "SPLASH FREE" garb. With Wonderfes 2013 Summer just hours away, I am hopeful we might get some more exciting announcements from ALTAiR and Hobby Stock. Who wouldn't love to see Rei-chan or Makoto join Haruka, right?

THE BASIC PLOT:
A new villain has come to town to challenge Batman for control of Gotham City: Anarky (WALLACE LANGHAM). Resembling a ghost image of Batman, Anarky prides himself on his brilliance – and intends to prove it to Batman by manipulating a pair of unsuspecting pawns to do his bidding. But Anarky’s real plan is far more devastating: seeking to create a disaster seen by all of Gotham and proving once and for all that even the great Batman is powerless to protect his fair city from the clutches of Anarky.
