New images of Transformers Masterpiece Ultra Magnus and Bumblebee found their way onto Amazon Japan giving us our biggest and best looks at the two newest MP figures yet. I've already spoken quite a bit about Bumblebee so there isn't a whole lot more to say. On the other hand this is our best look at Magnus in color yet and I've still got a few more things to say.
Let's start with the most obvious thing, the red front bumper. It's easy to look at it wonder what the folks at Takara Tomy were thinking since it's rarely seen, but it's actually cartoon accurate. Ugly, but accurate all the same. I could go without it, but I'm not going to flip a table over it either. We also get to see Spike and Daniel painted for the first time and they're basically what we would expect when compared to the young Spike that comes with Optimus Prime and the Daniel that comes with Bumblebee. We also get a better idea of how the facial expressions can be changed, presumably by removing the front portion of his head and sliding off the face. I had hoped his gray gun was just unpainted, but now that we can see the handle it's pretty obvious it was meant to be gray and won't be white like on the original figure. The missiles do appear to both be able to fire, yay! Interestingly he appears to come with a special pair of hands just for using with the Matrix.
With all the new Ultra Magnus photos I'm surprised we aren't seeing the unmasked face we saw in prototypes or the truck cab removed from the trailer. Maybe we'll see them in magazine scans. The new photo sets also come with both figures compared to Prime. Accurately Bumblebee barely reaches Prime's hips while Magnus towers over him. Bee will be released in November for ¥6,480 while Magnus will come out in December for ¥19,440. Pretty soon we'll be getting a full blowout for Masterpiece Star Saber, but not just yet. He was at Tokyo Toy Show, but no photos were allowed.
I've known Brenda Visaya since the beginning of my Fashion Royalty collecting days. Her fashions were always perfect. Seriously, this is doll costuming at it's best. Everything arrives perfectly sewn, ironed and packaged. They are hard to get because once Brenda lists something available, the flock descends on Etsy. I shouldn't even post this here but I have to give credit to this extremely talented designer who goes by the name Matisse.
Gene (IT's vinyl version) is posing with Madra's Dogs.
This is a good eBay story:
I love the Ashton Drake Gene Marshall accessories such as the furniture, lamps and such. The dogs were on my want list but they were always priced in the $150. range and I do draw the line somewhere. The other day I saw them posted for $75. or Best Offer. Just for the heck of it, I offered $50. I did not think the seller would accept. He did. Yay. They arrived yesterday, as described, in perfect NRFB condition.
Compared to Gene's little faux fur dogs called Dottie and Dashiell ("Out For A Stroll") they are fabulous.
TFormers' own BaCon has posted a massive image gallery of the BotCon 2014 display featuring all the convention exclusive toys! Check out Alpha Trizer from the Thundertron mold, Pounce and Wingspan from the regular and Jet Vehicon molds, Brimstone from the Fall of Cybertron Air Raid mold, and lots more!
Quiccs Maiquez will soon be releasing his very own DIY platform figure, the TEQ63: Zero1. Each figure is made of resin and stands 3.5” tall with articulation in the head. They will be available during the first week of July HERE and at the International Platform Toy Exhibition at the...

We’ve mentioned Nathan Ota’s sweet upcoming Suited Birdies from 3DRetro before, but now we’ve got these nice promo pics to share as well as full release info. Drawn from Nathan’s luminous paintings, the Suited Birdies Heart Edition is sized to match a real bird (~ 5” ?), is limited to...
We love surprises. So we're happy to report that Joe Ledbetter is teasing his ‘first independent vinyl figure’. Very cool –- nice to see artists taking more of a role in the production of toys of their art. Based on the image, looks like this one is coming later this...
Taylored Curiosities has teamed up with Sergey Safonov for their latest release, the Moon Seedlings. This limited release features our favorite hand sculpted seedlings cast in porcelain, with woolen sprouts and felt scarves from Taylored Curiosities and the Dream Boats we often see from Sergey’s toy releases. Each one comes...
It looks like Kidrobot has picked up their newest licensing project for 2015! What can we expect from these two? Toys? Apparel? Being Adventure Time fans ourselves, we cannot wait to see what they come up with. Is it just us or does the art style of Finn, Jake, and...
Robotkingdom has posted some images from BotCon 2014 showing some previously unknown Age of Extinction boxsets. Shown are recolors of the Leaders plus two different boxsets that seem to include the five Autobots from the film- Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Hound, Crosshairs, and Drift. One resembles Takara's "rusty" Evasion Mode Prime! Furthermore, a Drift seems to be in a more movie-accurate black. Keep reading for some mirrored images and a link to the full album!
Seibertron has posted galleries of the upcoming Subscription Service figures Thrustinator and Rewind. Thrustinator is a nifty freakish hybrid of Waspinator and his Beast Machines alter ego Thrust, and Rewind is a use of the unreleased (in the USA) RTS Rumble mold with a new head. Read on for some sample images and a link to the full galleries!
"Moon Seedlings" combine the work of Taylored Curiosities and Sergey Safonov - whereby hand sculpted Seedlings have been cast in porcelain and completed with woollen sprouts, removable felt scarves and dream boats.
Each one is signed and numbered out of 5 (there are 5 red scarves and 5 blue scarves). The big Seedling measures just over 2" tall and the little Seedling is just over an inch tall,
The official Transformers Facebook Page has posted an image of the BotCon 2014 exclusive Kre-O Micro Changers. Included are previous BotCon figures Fractyl, Landshark, Shattered Glass Rodimus, Pre-Beast Wars Rattrap, Gigatron AKA Overlord, and of course, G2 Breakdown. Keep reading for the whole story!
PRESS: "Titan Merchandise x Lunartik have teamed up with 20th Century Fox to produce the entire crew of the USS Nostromo from the Alien films, and of course their “stowaway” in a 12 piece collection, and in a touch of dark humor, their Xenomorph has been nick-named “Big Chap”.
The collection includes Ash, Kane, Ellen Ripley, and the various stages of the evolutionary process for their Alien, all
There was a time not too long ago in my past, where I would revel in all-things "Nightmare Before Christmas" - and I have numerous collectibles to prove my "allegiance"! But it has been quite a while since I lorded over any NBC-products … except now …
Come August 2014, Funko will be making available Nightmare Before Christmas: ReAction Figures, and I CANNOT WAIT! And three versions of "Jack
I will not lie, every single time I see images of The Terminator, the infernal drum-beat echoes in my mindscape (remember THAT sequence when Arnie walks thru the asylum toward Sarah in T2?) … and THIS is no different ...
"It's not a man, it's a machine. Sarah Conner has been targeted for Termination and only one man can save her! Travel back in time with Funko to the 80's with these Terminator
Is this the Trooper you were looking for?
Last seen at Thailand Toy Expo as an unpainted prototype,
will we see these dudes as production 1/6 release?
How about his "DARK friend"? *EXCITEMENT*

This very well might be the first Dinosauria Collection statue I order from Sideshow. It looks AWESOME! The T-Rex: The Tyrant King Statue by Sideshow Collectibles captures the viciousness and fierceness that is the Tyrannosaurus Rex. You can almost hear the roar coming from its mouth. Sideshow also called in renowned paleoartists to assist in the design, so you know it is accurate from head to toe. The T-Rex statue stands 12 inches tall, and from end to end, it measures a massive 30 inches long. It is cast in high-quality polystone and weighs in at 20lbs, so this isn’t
The post PRE-ORDER: T-Rex The Tyrant King Statue by Sideshow Collectibles appeared first on Statue Reviews and News.
I wasn’t really expecting to find Gizmo. After all, he was featured in Series 1 of NECA’s Reel Toys line devoted to the Gremlins movies that was released a couple of years now, so I was fairly sure I would probably never find him in the wild.
