Remember the 1/6-scaled THE BAT aerial vehicle Batman piloted in may a show from Hot Toys seen a while bak? Well, those are but fade memories now, as the new production version to be released, is to be 1/12th-scale. Comes with it's own 1/12th-scaled Batman figure too! Do check in with your fav retailer(s) for price and availability.
Meanwhile, some studio snaps to share, and hopefully we'll get
The Brute Splicer is supposed to be some sort of brawler, and the character design certainly conveys that impression. The Brute has most of his mass distributed onto the upper torso, with impossibly massive arms and a decidedly rotund paunch. The legs are also quite thick, but next to the upper limbs they tend to look ridiculously thin.
Besides the earlier posted Alien Deep Space Mystery ReAction Figures debuting at San Diego Comic Con 2014 (July 24-27), Super7 has added two more teaser-pics-with-huge question-marks, and not a whole lot of info … and while one is obviously an ALIEN-themed pack (duh), the other pack is intriguing with the inclusion of the "Miramax" partner logo … would this set feature characters from Quentin
Would the colour pink make a boy think about buying these toys? Photo: Good Morning Britain/ITV The key to getting more girls to study science and engineering may be getting them to ditch Barbie in favour of more gender neutral toys, according to the Government.
What goes around comes around and just like how Bandai likes to revisit the older Power Rangers every now and then the same is looking no different for Digimon Adventures. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the series Bandai is going back to the original series with two new collectible Digivices. A product page on the Premium Bandai shop shows silhouettes of two Digivices that any fan of the series should recognize as representing Tai and Matt by the Crest of Courage and the Crest of Friendship.
Not a lot of information is on the page, but what we do know is these are reproductions of the original toys released in Japan, but Bandai claims they've been "super evolved" so I guess we can expect some upgraded tech inside. They're priced at ¥9,990 and will go on sale Augusts first for a December release. While information is sparse for now they're planning to give these a full reveal at an event on July 19. If we're lucky we'll see an English version show up outside of Japan, perhaps as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive in the future?
There is new listing for Radiator Springs townie playsets – hard to tell if it’s new playsets or the return of the originals along with some new ones? Flo’s is listed along with Luigi’s and Ramone’s. There is a listing for the Cozy Cone Motel which has never been released in scale to the 1:55 […]
I've been impressed by what I've seen of Kotobukiya's Mikasa figure so far. Amiami recently uploaded a preview gallery, and their shots made me feel even better about the figure.
In the gallery you can get a great look at the shading on her cloak, the sculpt on her uniform, and of course her maneuver gear. Every thing looks good so far, though I did notice that from some angles Mikasa looks a little less graceful. From the side, it looks like she's in full-on titan killing mode. From the front and back, it kind of looks like she's stumbling. It's only natural; tree branches are hard to balance on after all.
Pre-orders are still open for Mikasa so if you missed out on (or don't want, for whatever reason) Good Smile Company's version, you can still pick this one up.

Thanks for the nice photos, “John H.” Nothing really too new unless you count the Riplash playsets. Not sure if Ishani came with the dump (new card?) or just placed there. Plastic smokejumper with this playset. Thanks “John H.” for the nice photos. Tweet This Post
Today is my mom’s birthday, so before I say anything else: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I’m hoping you have a fabulous, wonderful, knock-out, amazing day filled with chocolate, birthday cake, flowers, plants, and maybe some knitting. I’ll call ya later mom to confirm that list. That’s the best part of this day, that and the fact that […]

Dropping Friday June 27th @ 10am Pacific Friday via grasshutcorp.com/bwana are duo DEWEY THE TAPIR editions from Bwana Spoons. Neither quantities nor prices are as yet revealed for Flamingo Dingo and Mellow Yellow Miki Dewey the Tapir. Show below right is a WIP art for the header-card.
And while I have posted Secret BBs for BE@RBRICK Series 28 (four here & Getter Robo), today we feature the "Top Secret" BB: "PUSHEAD"! With a ratio of 1/192, apparently each piece features different marbling patterns! Oh dear, this might get some "completists" in a collecting tizzy… ;p
Make your way to INSTINCTOY.com to see if they have these for sale (pics via).
No wait, there's a DELUXE version? While I had earlier featured the 1/12th scale The Bat from Hot Toys, there is in fact another edition: "The Dark Knight Rises: 1/12th scale The Bat Deluxe Collectible Set".
You have the same "The Bat" in 1/12th scale, alone with the Batman figure, and for this DELUXE Set; will also include a 1/12th scale Selina Kyle Collectible Figure and the fusion reactor
Mikatan's old letter column, Kuroyagi-san's Letter Corner, has been rebranded as Kahotan Post Office, and in its first edition, she's officially announced (in English) that Good Smile Company will be setting up a figure production factory in Japan. Specifically, it'll be in Kurayoshi in Tottori Prefecture, at the Nishikurayoshi industrial park. According to the original Japanese news post, they're expecting an October opening date, and Nendoroids will, at the very least, be produced there.
I'm a bit curious what this might mean for costs as they relate to GSC's future releases, but having a GSC-owned factory within Japan that they could, theoretically, travel to easier is a potential bonus to quality control and other production-related issues. What are your thoughts on the news? Oh, and do keep in mind you can e-mail Kahotan with your own questions, as well!

After weeks and weeks of colorways, Funko has suddenly started announcing new molds for its Hikari line. Last week saw Mystic Powers Skeletor (the coolest figure in the line thus far) and now, possibly in honor of Transformers: Age of Extinction opening today, the company has unveiled TWO Transformers molds: Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
Both figures are (thankfully) based on their classic appearances and done in a "Clear Glitter" deco. They sport a blocky design, giving them a vastly different aesthetic from what we've seen in the line thus far. It seems like a neat look and I'm curious how they'll look with different decos. Given that the Transformers themselves are no strangers to colorways, it's something of an ideal match.
As always, you can win the first copy of ONE of these figures by entering a contest on Funko's Facebook page. If you don't win, you still have a chance to purchase one of the remaining 2,999 copies (each has a 3,000 print run) although if you really want one I'd strongly encourage you to pre-order now anyway because several retailers sold out very quickly on that Skeletor (I'm looking at you, BBTS!). They're slated for an October release and have a US$50 list price.
This fall, Kids Preferred will have a new series of Splat the Cat toys, based on the bestselling children’s picture books by Rob Scotton. The books center on Splat, a rambunctious cat that befriends a mouse, goes to school, and learns a few lessons along the way. The Splat the Cat line includes the Splat [...]
