CapoToys has a boss new line of Street Fighter figures on the way. The first four figures in this 7-inch scale line will be Ryu, Sagat, Chun Li, and Guile.
The company recently gave Figures.com a first look at the prototypes for these figures, which will be on display next month at Toy Fair in New York (Booth #5042), as well as an interview. The figures are listed as being almost entirely ball-jointed and will feature 19-points of articulation.
The Street Fighter franchise has had a somewhat rocky time with action figures in recent years, but CapoToys looks like it may do right by the venerable fighting game franchise. The sculpting on all of these looks really good, seemingly even better than what Square-Enix has been doing.
Expect to see more news about CapoToys and its new line come Toy Fair.
A new figure line, TakaraTomy's Microman A.R.T.S., has been spotted in recent magazine scans from 2chan. What makes the line special are the figures' stature, each only 10 centimeters tall (hence the "micro" bit). The figures are also noted to be posable.
Microman A.R.T.S. appears to be a bit of a misnomer as the focus seems to be on the women characters in today's anime. From these scans alone, we see some of the heroines of Kantai Collection, Love Live!, and Project 575. It looks like the figures come with accessories to fit the show as well. For example, the idols of Love Live! come with microphones.
The two page spread also shows a secret figure of a heroine from the Grisaia no Kajitsu series as part of the TakaraTomy A.R.T.S. line. It will be 1:7 scale and 27 inches tall. We also get a glimpse at a sketch of robot from the game Wolf Fang. Also part of the TakaraTomy A.R.T.S. line, this figure will be 10 centimeters tall. It was made with the 3D CG data from the game. No word on the price or release date for these.
Take a look at the scan in its full glory in the gallery to experience the magic for yourself!
I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming Godzilla movie. What we are at Tomo are excited for are the toys, and we haven't seen anything except for the pre-order listings. Since that was a few days ago, it wasn't too hard to figure that images would come soon and it starts with a beast of a figure, a 61cm tall figure of the King of All Monsters.
There's very little to go on here except for the images. There isn't even a manufacturer listing as these shots are presumably supposed to be underwraps for a big reveal at Toy Fair. What we do know is that this is a giant 'Zilla and there's at least some articulation. It's not much, with just basic shoulder and leg rotation, opening mouth and segmented tail. MonsterArts this is not, but this is a 2 foot tall figure. Big G is going to have a flood of figures this year and this is only the beginning.
Odds are, regardless of the manufacturer here, most of us won't be picking up this monstrosity. I'm liking the look for this new Godzilla at least, so if anything, this just gets me more amped up for what's coming later.

I'm quite pleased with how they turned out. If I were to continue to do faceups, I think I would get good at it. Practice, practice, practice.
When Tonner released his promotional images of the latest two Theatre de la Mode dolls a few months ago, I criticized the one called Elegance #93 for the over-scaled flowers down the side of the dress. As time went by, I kept seeing her face and my 'want' grew. (You know that feeling, I'm sure.) I certainly was not going to pay the ridiculous $225. retail cost. When a favorite dealer offered them for less than half price, I jumped.
I was going to remove the flowers but I have come to like the whole package. This is a gorgeous doll! Besides the Gina sculpt, which is my current favorite Tonner sculpt, the hair, the colors, the styling...is all stunning and she makes a wonderful addition to my collection.
I still want to see a picture of the original TDLM fashion.

Toys for Tots thanks all who helped
We just moved from Oregon to California and I will admit some of my reservations about moving were how dirty and different the environment is in California. Some days the smog hangs all around the LA area and well lets just say the water is highly treated. It’s a far cry from the crystal clear… [read more]

Halloween costumes. I've never had the pleasure of donning, and probably might not foist them unto my own kids (if I ever had any offsprings in the first place), but I reckon I might purchase some costume, only if they specifically reveal the designs of movie characters, like these two franchises!
Shown up top are costumes for MARVEL's Guardians of the Galaxy - tweeted by the film's director James Gunn himself - and while not necessarily "revealing" what has already been shown, but nifty to see the hand-weapon!
And does the costume featured below reveal the TMNT-character design Michael Bay's upcoming film reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? The shades hooked dangling on the chest are so 90s, innit? Haha-awesome!
Not just "toys" revealing stuff from movies, now Halloween costumes are doing the job? Gosh-bless merchandizing! LOL
