Suckadelic has opened up a new MyShopify store in order to peddle some of their new "studio exclusives". These are things you wouldn't have been able to get your hands on if you didn't live close to New York City. Right now it's only those six figure pictured above, but there will be a number […]
The National Retail Federation has lowered its retail sales forecast for the rest of the year. Originally, slow growth was recorded during the first half of the year, but growth is expected to be significantly faster over the next five months. NRF forecasted in January that retail sales would grow 4.1 percent this year over [...]
Third party Transformers news for the week ending July 26th, 2014. Includes the latest news from Ark Studio, Gigapower, Keith's Fantasy Club, Maketoys, Mech Ideas, TFC Toys and X-Transbots. Includes a special is a look at third party add-ons for the upcoming Generations combiners. Screen shot this week is a 1978 movie The Return of Captain Nemo.
X-Transbots have posted their final production images for the Hoss figure that is a homage to the GoBot Road Ranger character. Get a look at thee figure out of the box with looks at the packaging, robot and vehicle modes for the full preview now.
Arcadia continues its transition from its old Yamato label and went to Wonder Festival with a bit of pretty much everything in their catalogue. Their Angel-Philia line of dolls were given a larger display than usual though the entire thing was kept SFW despite the line being known to cater for more "adult" tastes.
There was also an interesting array of Macross items on display as well, mostly focusing on the SDF-1 Macross itself. The ones on display were of the redesign for the film Macross: do you remember Love and they even had a diorama depicting the aftermath of their first skirmish with the Meltradi after returning to earth. Figure wise, things seemed somewhat thinner on the ground with several repaints of Elin from Tera, though we did get two figures from Katanagatari as well as a new Shining Blade figure and 7th Dragon 2020 figure in the shape of Rosalinde Freya and Rucier respectively, both sculpted by Cerberus Project.
The display makes it rather hard to pinpoint just what future plans Arcadia have in store. Compared to previous events, they had very little to announce so it'll be interesting to see what they bring to the table in later events.
While NECA's conventional Gremlins offerings seem stalled, the company showed off a FIFTH series of Mogwais at SDCC. As with series 4, the assortment features concept Mogwais originally designed for Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
The new Mogwais are apparently named Patches (that's the calico), Gary (he's all-white), and Zoe (light brown & white). I'm not sure whether these are the original concept names or whether NECA did the naming themselves. However, I know that I really like the look of Patches and I'm moderately tempted to grab Zoe as well just to have a second "female" Mogwai (to keep Penny company on my shelf; you know, overlooking that Mogwai and Gremlins shouldn't have genders (since they reproduce asexually) despite the film's She-Gremlin).
Of the three, Gary seems to be the only Mogwai with a new face. However, the face is probably the least cute one seen thus far and the all-white deco seems boring despite standing out in comparison to the other Mogwai. On the plus side, Gary will be nearly immune to paint app errors.
Although the placard at the booth clearly said "October", NECA's press information for the figures instead lists them as being a November release. The figures are currently available for pre-order either individually for US$14 apiece or together for US$40 (although, at the time of writing, Zoe cannot be pre-ordered separately). Be sure to check out our SDCC photos of the trio in the gallery.
Funko and Mindstyle International have reached an agreement for a strategic alliance in greater China and southeast Asia.

I'm a little late in presenting this new Barbie doll as she was released on 7/15/14.
