"ROCK'N ROLL" presents a sofubi project designed by Itokin Park, with characters based on an old Japanese television animation for kids, to be made available at the July 28th Wonder Festival 2013 [Summer]. Apologies I do not have either price nor quantities, but if you happen to be there, make your way to booth 6-06-10 to score some sweetness haha
We've reported that some Transformers 4 filming would be taking place on boats in the Michigan area. We have conformation that this work has been completed on both the S.S. Columbia and her sister the S.S. Ste Clair ships docked on the River Rouge. The production on the Boblo boats was reported by Columbia's ship keeper, Sam Buchanan, as "a prominent role" in the film with a second smoke stack added to the St. Clair, and "minor" for the Columbia. Shooting continues in downtown Detroit on Monday where the "Hong Kong" scenes are said to take place.
Now THIS is totally awesome = STEAMPUNK CUSTOM BLASTER from Rich Page of UME Toys - with this particular pieces modified from a "Nerf gun"!
"Next on the to-do list is a display cradle for it. If anyone fancies one drop me a line I might be tempted in to making more." -mentioned Rich.
Tagoal blog have posted new out of package images of the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Prowl deluxe class action figure. Check out this remake of the Transformers Prime Smokescreen figure that makes a darn good version of Prowl. The out of package images how Prowl in his robot and alternate vehicle modes as well as compared with the Smokescreen figures.
First for Guam: A sign for Toys R Us Express is on display at the Micronesia Mall, as photographed on Thursday. Masako Watanabe/Pacific Daily Newsemail@example.com
Tagoal blog have posted new out of package images of the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Stealth Bumblebee deluxe class action figure. Check out the repaint of the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Bumblebee figure that it just loaded down with spikes and missiles and all sort of spinney artifacts that makes this figure quite different and well, interesting.
Dr Wu Rearguard returns with a upgrades for the Asia Exclusive Conehead Color figures. The set includes arm cannons for the three Classics "Conehead" Seekers Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. Now, fans can have the original Conehead characters each with their own weapons. Get a look at all the kits on the Asia Exclusive Conehead Seeker figures images for more details on the new upgrades.
Just in via Hobbybase who have posted some images of the Transformers Metroplex ACG Hong Kong 2013 Exclusive Edition Titan class figure out of the box. Get a look a this version that was released in Hong Kong China this weekend as it emerges from the packaging complete with silver and gold colored decoy mini-figures.
Your eyes do not deceive you: Nendoroid Luigi and Wind Waker Link art is in that header image. They're coming. We have no other info at this time, but Link should have been obvious: I mentioned it was the most likely non-Mario Nintendo Nendoroid in a feature I wrote in May.
As for why not Mario first? It truly must be the Year of Luigi ... or at least the year of the New Super Luigi U tie-ins.
Now would seem to be a good time to be a Tales of... fan. Tales of Xillia is getting a western release within the next couple of weeks, its direct sequel, Tales of Xillia 2 has been confirmed for a western release as well AND we're getting a HD remake of both Tales of Symphonia games!
Not one to miss a trick, Kotobukiya is already ahead of our thinking and have shown off a figure of Colette Brunel! Expect her to be released sometime in 2014, probably around the release of the HD remake. I suspect that Tales of Symphonia was one of the first entries in the series for many people back on the Gamecube so getting some more figures on top of the Xellos and Lloyd figures shown at Tales fest can only be a good thing. They just better release a figure for Sheena...
Kotobukiya news is trickling in and I've spotted a few figures to get excited about. First up is a colored version of Kasumi Yashiro from Muv-Luv Alternative. It's a bunny outfit figure done by 4-Leaves, but may be a bit racy for some. Another Muv-Luv Alternative figure was on display: Sumika Kagami in her pilot suit. Following with the aesthetic of the other pilot suit figures, she'll have a rubble motif for the base.
Next up are my personal favorites: a couple of Monogatari gals! You can see Hitagi Senjougahara looking like she's scheming something in her chair (and with handcuffs). This is a reference to Nisemonogatari, of course. There's also an adorable Shinobu figure. She certainly looks excited to have a donut in hand.
Finally there's Shiki Ryougi from Kara no Kyoukai, a series of light novels published by Type-Moon. Shiki is striking an elegant pose, going for a traditional look with sword and kimono.
Be sure to check back for more WonFes coverage, there's still a ton more to go!
A pair of fighting girls are joining the Nendoroid lineup, albeit from disparate parts of the world. The newest reveal is A Certain Scientific Railgun's Kuroko Shirai, whose specialty is teleporting herself and other objects. She's seen here with a briefcase full of needles, which she teleports into enemy clothing and equipment to disable them.
The other photo shows off the Nendoroid Aigis figure that was teased by Mikatan last week. She's got your typically blank Aigis expression, striking her standard one-hand-up pose. Hopefully we'll see some accessories for her soon; Nendoroid weaponry is just the best!

So far, outside of the previously teased Misaka Mikoto, there's no big surprises with Kotobukiya's Cu-Poche line at Wonder Festival 2013 Summer. However, their booth does have another chance to check out two releases near the end of this year and the start of 2014: Hentai Ouji's Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko and Madoka's Sayaka Miki.
Tsukiko comes with Warawanai Nekozou and her oni mask, and it set to release in December. Sayaka comes with all her swords and will be coming along in 2014.
Check out the gallery for photos, and stay tuned for more WonFes coverage, especially if Cu-Poche Misaka Mikoto shows up!
Earlier this month Sideshow Collectibles revealed their first Pacific Rim Statue, the amazing Knifehead Kaiju. Now Sideshow is ready for round 2 with their latest Comic-Con reveal, the Pacific Rim...

On show at Wonder Festival 2013 Sunday today (not sure if folks can pre-order on the spot tho...), was Michael Lau's GARDEN(PALM)ER from How2Work, and I am chewing my nails off trying to score these figurines! I really haven't had the opportunity to suss these figures out post-TTF, but here is a quick gist (via Monster Taipei):
The 7" tall figure is priced at NTD$14580 (US$487)
per season of 10 x figures (there are multiple of "seasons", at least three) with the first season launching October 2013. Will update with further details once they are concrete…
Products so epic, I need to split them into two posts! And while we've had a look at both Eren and Mikasa as upcoming FIGMA action figures, here's a post dedicated to the COLOSSAL TITAN from the current hot-anime-series Shingeki no Kyojin or "Attack On Titan"!
This year's Wonder Festival in Japan sees the breakout "star" of the series manifested as a giant-head in the middle of the festival grounds, and as a cosplayer run amuck in a variety of shenanigans and as well introducing awesome "Shingeki no Kyojin" toys!
I'll wrap up this post with a look at studio snaps of the upcoming Colossal Titan figure from Max Factory x Good Smile Co, and a sweet dioramic scene along with other smaller Titans! more product and availability details when i have them, of course!
WHAT: Another Titan Shifter. At 60 meters, the largest Titan so far in the series. At an estimated 60m tall, it is four times the height of any other known Titan, and unlike most, apparently possesses a degree of intelligence and tactical planning to go with its strength. This Titan is strong enough to break down the defensive walls surrounding humankind to allow other Titans in, something it has done twice already. It has slow movements and can discharge hot steam from it's body. (description via Wiki … notice it mentioned "Titan Shifter"… SPOILERS)(event pics via @GSC_GUMA / Kaijin Toy / whl4u.jp)
New Delhi, July 28 (IANS) The Rs.7,500 crore ($16.65 billion) Indian toy industry that was once reeling under competition from cheap Chinese products is pulling out all stops to bounce back into children's reckoning with innovative and better designed toys. It hopes to do better in the future as Chinese products are expected to become costlier.
Here's a look at "magpapahamburger" from Jon Burgerman and produced by Vinyl On Vinyl! And while I do not have products specific at time of this post, I reckon you might be able to pick this yummy dude up at Jon's art talk and exhibition for when it launches 28th July (5pm-on) at VinylonVinyl Gallery in Manila (Admission is FREE). This dude is the resin manifestation of the mascot found on www.burgerplex.com haha

First step of the D23 Expo Convoy Brothers is to admire the exterior box – awesome. Today, it’s time to snap a few more photos close up. Well, not quite take the plastic lid off just yet … you must approach by stealth. Yea, if you’re going to quibble on the .01%, it would’ve been [...]
