It's been a while since we've mentioned Sideshow Collectibles' latest offerings, but here we are, with not one, not two, but five different pieces that have recently opened for pre-order. Quite a diverse selection, too, including Star Wars, movies and comic collectibles.
Wondering what's new? Hit the jump to find out!
To start, there's the Captain Jack Sparrow, one of the Sideshow pieces we saw at San Diego Comic Con. Coming in April 2013, Jack Sparrow is US$379.99 and comes with a ton of well-sculpted accessories, like his flintlock pistol, sword and scabbard, compass and other bits and bobs hanging from his sash and belt. Those of you jumping on the Sideshow Exclusive variant get an alternate head, featuring Jack wearing his bandana, to swap out the regular head with.
Not feeling the call of the high seas but still in search of adventure? Then you might be interested in Sideshow's 1/5-scale Indiana Jones "Pursuit of the Ark" statue, featuring Indiana on horseback as seen in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Standing 23 inches tall, the statue is set for a June 2013 release and is the biggest and most expensive of the five pieces at US$499.99. The Sideshow Exclusive variant comes with an alternate hand for Indy that has him wielding a pistol.
The next entry in the DC Premium Format Figure line is also up for pre-order today, Green Lantern. A full 21 inches tall, Green Lantern is an April 2013 release at US$349.99. For those wondering what the Sideshow Exclusive version bonus is, it's a big green hard light fist construct on Lantern's right arm.
For Star Wars fans, there's two things to note. First is the next entry in the Star Wars Mythos line, the Gammorean Executioner. A hulking 19 inches tall or 1/5 scale, the big green guy will be releasing in March 2013 for US$324.99, but you can pre-order him now. Loving the detail on this piece, especially the base.
Finally, if you're collecting from the Star Wars Sixth Scale family, there's the Padawan Obi-Wan Sixth Scale figure. Fully articulated, the 12-inch-tall (1/6-scale) Obi-Wan features a head sculpted and handpainted to look like Ewan McGregor, with the Sideshow Exclusive variant adding a second "lightsaber duel" head to the mix. Both versions come with three sets of hands, two sets of boots, a full Jedi knight outfit based on the one Obi-Wan wore in Episode I, a lightsaber hilt and ignited blade, and a swappable hand that has a battery-powered illumination effect. He releases in February 2013 for US$149.99
[Pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles: Obi-Wan Padawan Sixth-Scale (regular, Sideshow Exclusive) | Indiana Jones "Pursuit of the Ark" (regular, Sideshow Exclusive) | Captain Jack Sparrow (Regular, Sideshow Exclusive) | Gamorrean Executioner | Green Lantern (Regular, Sideshow Exclusive)]
Lulubell Toys has announced the details regarding the 5th version of Skinner's Ultrus Bog - the Black Earth Scalded Magma Soul Version. The figure was sculpted in Japan by master sculptor Siccaluna and produced by Lulubell Toys in Japan. The Ultrus Bog Black Earth Scalded Magma Soul Version will be available on October 1st 2012 [...]
DFW Toys for Tots is facing a different kind of economic challenge as it works to make Christmas special for children in the area.
Each year, Good Smile comes out with a Racing Miku, but the old ones have always been retired. That was until this week, when new sponsorship packages for Good Smile Racing appeared and figma Racing Miku 2011, and Nendoroid Racing Mikus 2010 and 2011 all appeared again! Yes, all three are available a second time through Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. Japan Standard Time (6 a.m. Eastern) with all their original accessories. As a bonus, the 2010 Miku comes with new stickers to match the 2012 design, while the 2011 Mikus come with properly scaled championship trophies.
All three are in sets for ¥7,000 each (plus shipping, limit 5 per order) with a ticket holder, personal sponsor card and keychain included. You can pick up all three sets at the Good Smile Racing shop. Anyone going to jump on the offer to pick these Racing Mikus up?
Why buy the expensive name brands when you can buy the same pesticide active ingredients and do it yourself for significantly less. Whether spraying, baiting, dusting, spreading, fogging, or misting, doing your own pest control is the way to go, especially since Do My own Pest Control will help you find the right chemicals and...

Sideshow Collectibles has placed their sixth scale Padawan Obi-Wan - from the Order of the Jedi series - up for pre-order. With an estimated ship date of February 2013, the figure can be pre-ordered for $149.99. The Padawan Obi-Wan Sixth Scale Figure features: • Ewan McGregor Portrait • Lightsaber Hilt • Lightsaber with Ignited Blade [...]
Skinner is out to release the 5th colorway of his Ultrus Bog figure with Siccaluna. (takes deep breath) The Black Earth Sscalded Magma Soul Edition will be available for pre-order through Lulubell Toys on Monday, October 1st at 1PM PST. Be sure to set aside $85 for the pre-order and...
Unfortunately Gary Ham’s Toytems didn’t make it to SDCC, because he wanted the best of quality for his fans. A few months later and they are almost here! Available for Pre-Order in Gary’s Online Store is one of these fantastic looking sets, which features 7 stackable Monster themed vinyl figures...
The NYCC news keeps rolling in, as myplasticheart has just announced their exclusive “The Cast of Shadows” release with Brent Nolasco. They will have three of these hand sculpted and hand painted figures available at their booth #3313, which will retail $245. Brent will also be singing at the booth...
Kidrobot takes another one of their King of the Boards artists to produce their very own 3” Dunny! Rsin’s Agent K Dunny will be released during NYCC at the Kidrobot Booth #2909. Agent K features a uniquely sculpted head, ray gun, and features Rsin’s signature vibrant colors. This release is...
If you remember back to ThreeA's SDCC exclusives, you might remember they came with in-game codes for something in Team Fortress 2, a war-themed hat simulator that a certain editor-in-chief plays on a very frequent basis. Those codes, when entered, gave folks a mysterious present, and today, those presents were unwrapped to reveal in-game items, just as we'd suspected all along. This is Valve, after all.
Buyers of the Sandvich unlocked the Robo-Sandvich, while those who bought the Weighted Companion Square got something a billion times better: the Friends Forever Companion Square Badge, a digital version of their Companion Squares to wear in-game. Look at him! He's so tiny and adorable. Both unlocks also came with the Triple A Badge, which is just the ThreeA logo.
If you didn't get one in the initial rush, you're out of luck. Am I upset about this because I'll never get to show off my collector's pride in one of my favorite games for all to see? YES Not really, as there isn't much anyone can do.
The latest myplasticheart exclusive is a spooky piece from Lamour Supreme entitled Baby Hell. The 5.5-inch sofubi figure is appropriately enough cast in red with blue/black sprays and other hand-painted details. There's only nine of these painted pieces and two unpainted mixed part versions, each blind-bagged and coming with a special 11-inch-by-17-inch Baby Hell print.
Baby Huey goes on sale Saturday at 1 p.m. Eastern (10 a.m. Pacific, 5 p.m. GMT) for US$149.99 at myplasticheart's New York City location (210 Forsyth St., Lower East Side, Manhattan). Leftovers go up on the myplasticheart online store Tuesday at 1 p.m. Eastern.
Other than anime and game characters, Good Smile Company have been making quite a few figure renditions of humans (gasp). The next product is Linkin Park who get their very own Nendoroids! This set of the whole band should be out any time now - retail price is 4,000 yen.
Check out the following trusted online figure dealers if you are looking to order this set.
The question to you (and Good Smile Company are listening) is who do you want to see being made into a Nendoroid? How about some seiyuu or music artists and if so who?
There is a poll embedded in this article.
Diamond Select Toys has sent along a press release announcing their second assortment of Street Fighter V. Tekken Minimates! Scheduled for release in January 2013. Follow through for additional product information and click the thumbnails above for a closer look at these awesome Minimates.
Here at TOYSREVIL, I'm partial to read and know about your "firsts", and before you continue to drag yor mind thru the gutter, by "firsts", I would mean the first time you customize this toy-form, or purchase that toy! Fuller Designs share with us his first PAW custom, and added: "I decided to do an Egyptian Warrior Mummy. His job is to protect the Pharaoh at all cost. He was a commission. It
A line of R/C predators have come out that are thriving in an environment that many R/C toys would struggle to perform in-the dark. The darker the room, the better an Illumivor will show off its fearsome jaws and bright lights. What Is an Illumivor? An Illumivor is a remote controlled illuminated carnivorous beast- so [...]
Started this series a year ago and only managed to do the 2nd installment today ><
Today we continue to take a look at the streets of Tokyo - some of these taken on trips outside of the metropolis though. Japan looks great when seen from the street view or trains but there are places that you cant normally get to or see unless you travel by car.
As with the previous post, you will notice just how clean the streets are. The Japanese are a diligent bunch of folks and most do their bit to keep the streets clean. There are even some parts of the highway where you see workers run out to remove anything that has wandered its way onto the lanes like wood or bits that have fallen off trucks.
Highways are known as Kousoku [高速[こうそく]] which means "high speed" - they are also known as Yuuryou Douro [有料道路[ゆうりょうどうろ]] or "toll roads" - we usually pay something like 700 yen to use them on a one way trip within the metropolis.
Traffic is not so bad in Tokyo - unless there is heavy rain (folks drive slower) or an accident - or a weekend. I try to avoid traveling on a weekend as much as possible. I remember travelling up to Nikko spending about 5 hours in traffic and only a couple of hours at the destination ><
As with before - feel free to use these photos as you please and if you are a manga artist and need some backgrounds then feel free to trace too.
