Exciting new images have appeared on figsoku, including a currently-being-designed Nendoroid Archer/Gilgamesh (which I fully expect to receive an unpainted prototype... then not get released). Other items on display in some form or another include an unpainted Mikasa Ackerman (from the absurdly popular Attack on Titan), an in-progress Saber Extra, and a Gods Eater Ciel Alencon (Max Factory), as well as concept art for a "7th Dragon 2020 Psychic" (Max Factory)?
There are some assorted other items in the mix that I can't identify (and the auto-translation isn't much help), but the big news for me is that some progress is being made on Archer/Gilgamesh. We saw some concept art for him at Summer WonFes earlier this year but, given the Archer track record, I wasn't sure when we'd see a development of any sort.
I'm also digging the unpainted Ciel. I've never been one for maid characters but that's some great sculpting and a rather attractive pose.
Due to a massive shortage of gifts, some Toys for Tots charitable holiday events in the metro area may be canceled this year.
It's the moment simpering fangirls (and boys!) the world over have been waiting for, as Max Factory has unleashed the newest figma in the Attack On Titan range, dour brigade captain Levi.
As with Mikasa and Eren before him, Levi comes decked out in his full Survey Corps gear, including wonderfully detailed reproductions of his 3D maneuver gear. That's supplemented by cool effects parts, with shooting grapnels and a stand add-on. He'll also come with his cloak as well as two extra faces, a grim, teeth-gritted affair and an even colder look than normal.
I must say, as wonderful as this looks, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to get excited about the Attack On Titan figmas. The detail and quality looks to be as good as it's ever been, but since all of these characters have the same basic design and accessories it's getting a little samey. Still, I suppose that's the point of a military force of figures right? Prove how wrong I am by pre-ordering Levi at the links below - he's ¥4,571 and will be soaring through the air to you in June of next year

The rudeness of this shadow is a happy accident.
Diamond Select Toys has announced that its upcoming Thor: The Dark World Marvel Jane Foster, along with other offerings, should be hitting stores this week. Expect to see Jane Foster, the Marvel Now! Minimates Thunderbolts box set, a Mjolnir (Thor's hammer) silicon tray, and Marvel Minimates Series 53 Thor: The Dark World 2-packs at retail in the very near future (if you don't have them already!).
Don't have a comic book store or other specialty retailer by you? Entertainment Earth and Big Bad Toy Store currently have many of these items in-stock.
Last week we got our first look at Transformers Generations Rattrap from the cover of the official Transformers Collector's Club magazine. Hasbro has wasted no time in making sure everyone gets a good look at their latest Transformers with not just a full look at Rattrap, but also Tankor and Crosscut.
As we've already seen, Rattrap is a great, near-screen accurate version of the Beast Wars character. His two guns can be combined into a larger rifle while his left arm has a secret compartments with his 'hot box' hidden inside. What we hadn't seen before was his beast mode. Rat mode straddles the line between looking like the original toy and the TV version. He still has the rows of teeth found on the original toy, but the black eyes and dark gray fur from the cartoon. Would have preferred something shaped closer to the TV version or at least with smoother sculpted fur, but it isn't terrible.
Tankor is a surprisingly accurate take on the Vehicon general from Beast Machines. He never really got a good figure in the original toy line. He was released as a Mega class (the equivalent to Voyager class today) figure in 1999, but that version was based on early concepts rather than the TV model, like much of the figure line. In 2001 a more accurate figure was released as a Tank Drone, but that was only a small Basic class figure. The new Tankor is looking great in both modes making it the best version ever made some 15 years later. Down side? He's only a Deluxe class figure. Too bad, a Voyager would have really served him well, especially knowing his secret identity.
Crosscut is a remold/repaint of the newly released Skids figure. Back in the days before Transformers in the original Diaclone line the Honda City car had five releases. The blue Honda City Turbo was re-purposed for G1 as Skids, but black and red versions as well as silver and red Honda City R figures went unused. In 2002 e-HOBBY finally went back and released the silver City R for G1 and gave him the name Crosscut. The new Crosscut figure features a new head and colors accurate to the original. He's a heavily armed bot featuring multiple built-in weapons in his back, shoulders, and arms, as well as a pair of guns that can be combined into a rifle similar to Rattrap's.
Incidentally, in 2009 as an exclusive to Million Publishing in Japan the G1 reissue of City Turbo Skids was repainted green as an homage to the Dark of the Moon character of the same name. Likewise the e-HOBBY City R Crosscut figure was repainted orange and given a new head with the name Screech based on DotM Mudflap. I doubt we have to worry about something like that being done with the new Generations figures.
Three great looking figures I can't wait to get my hands on. Not a ton of repaint potential on Rattrap or Tankor, but there are some possibilities. Best chances are with Botcon. In 1997 a blue repaint of the original Rattrap was sold at Botcon by the name of Packrat while in 2001 the Botcon comic featured Tankor repainted as Decepticon Targetmaster Quake. Not great choices, but entirely plausible.
