The next round of events in Japan has begun, opening with the Animate Girls Festival. And we certainly have a great way to start the fun, with a reveal of the previously teased figure of Raven from Tales of Vesperia in full color. The deep hues of his outfit look great, don't you think? The relaxed pose suits his laid-back persona. And, just like Alter's previous Vesperia figures, Yuri (reviewed), Flynn (reviewed), and Rita (reviewed), he comes with a chibi version of himself. So cute!
What do you think of how he turned out?
Thanks to the official Planet X page we have some new images that show off the homage to War for Cybertron Omega Supreme, Genesis. The figure has really caught collectors' attention with a beautiful figure that is loaded with features. Here we get some look at the Genesis's accessories including his LED enable parts and a neat little nod the Generation 1 figures with the a Headmaster deal that transforms into a little tank mode figure, too cool for old school! Its not for sure, but it looks like the toy has a pull back motor that will auto-propell the tank toy.

The outfit is completed with brilliant accessories: a coral "crocodile" leather bag with beige strap and a pair of bi-colored strap pumps.

Awhile back we featured a brand-new BATMAN: MY BUSY BOOK Book we came across at Wal-Mart ( CLICK HERE! ) and then, just the other day, a Bat-Blog Reader was kind enough to share some related news and even sent us some cool pics!
Here are his photos of a book he found called DC SUPER FRIENDS: MY BUSY BOOK. As you can see it's basically the same format as the other one ( a large Book with Playmat & 12 mini-figures ) but this one features the characters from the Fisher-Price Action Figure toy line.
Here's a quick post to share this very fun photo of our friend Cliff as he appeared at a recent event in Ohio ( Cincinnati Bengals game ) where they had some ultra-cool Batmobiles on display. Yes, that's Cliff standing next to the 1966 Batmobile wearing his 1989 Batman Movie Costume, AWESOME!
Ever wonder what high school was like for your favorite super heroes and villains in Gotham City?
Please be sure to check out this amazing GOTHAM HIGH ( 2013 ) Parody Movie Trailer created by Movieclips. Of course it was inspired by THE DARK KNIGHT Batman Trilogy and it features a ton of characters from the Nolan universe, that is, if they were all young and still in High School, ha ha ha! The editing is really clever & it's very well done. I mean, it will totally fool you into thinking it's real!!
Big Bad Toy Store (BBTS) is offering fans another chance to own some Matty Collector exclusives, courtesy of a "warehouse find". Among these items are the 2009 SDCC-exclusive Wonder Twins 2-pack, the DCUC Starfire & Adam Strange pack, a JLU pack, some Retro Action DC Superheroes, and an Infinite Heroes pack.
The key note item here is obviously the Wonder Twins pack even if it lacks the con-exclusive Gleek figure (he was their blue space monkey). The Wonder Twins are likely best known for their recurring role on the Super Friends cartoons and the subsequent parodies thereof. Zan, who has the power to turn into anything associated with water or ice, comes with an accessory representing one of his most common transformations: a bucket of water. Jayna, who could transform into any animal, comes with her eagle transformation. The packaging features light and sound but, honestly, it's no Gleek substitute. The figures really fail to capture the looks of either their cartoon or comic counterparts, instead just giving them a kind of mean or evil appearance. There's a strong chance I won't bother buying them again although the extra opportunity is great. You can pre-order them for US$45.
Fans may also be pleased with another chance at buying the "Space Heroes" 2-pack which features Starfire and Adam Strange. Despite being a well-known B-lister, Starfire was relegated to an online exclusive bundle long before her Teen Titan teammates Beast Boy, Raven, Impulse/Flash jr, and others made it into the normal line (Robin and Cyborg came out much earlier). As such, this has presented an obstacle to fans trying to assemble a New Teen Titans line-up (or a Teen Titans Go one, for that matter...) which makes this pre-order something of a godsend. Adam Strange, on the other hand, is a name less known outside of comics and presumably even less liked (although a season 2 Young Justice appearance might have changed at least the former if not the latter). The pack can be pre-ordered for US$30; coincidentally this was the original order price on Matty Collector which, at the time, was a complete rip-off since single-carded figures ran for around US$10 at retail. However, retail pricing (now around US$16) has more than caught up with it.
The other four exclusives might have been offered on BBTS for a while. Retro DC Superheroes Jon Stewart (the African-American Green Lantern, not to be confused with the Jewish comedian-reporter) and Sinestro Corps Sinestro were both part of a Matty exclusive Green Lantern-themed wave. Given that they originally sold for US$20, you're getting at least a slight bargain with their respective US$13 and US$15 pricing. While I'm still not going to bother with S.C. Sinestro (since I have the classic costumed version from this line), I'm tempted to pick up the Jon Stewart since he's the only Green Lantern that I actually like. For Justice League Unlimited fans, the JLU "Gotham City Criminals" pack features Clock King (Tempus Fugate), Harley Quinn, Bane, and the latter-appearance Scarecrow; this pack can be pre-ordered for a reasonable US$25. Finally, for the mostly forgotten Infinite Heroes line we have a "Crisis" pack featuring the Monitor, a speed-force Flash variant (where he turns himself into a lightning bolt to... okay, it was a pretty crazy time in comics), a battle-damaged Super Girl, and Psycho Pirate. The pack isn't exactly a good value at US$30 but it was a pretty awful line at the time (that later just became a mediocre line before becoming a canceled line).
All of the pre-orders are listed to release in November while Sinestro is apparently available right now. I would expect that at least some of the items will be in demand.

DailyMotion has unearthed a new marketing sizzle for the new Robocop film. It looks like there will be a few versions of the Robocop armor. Minor SPOILERS – just for those that want to go in completely clean. RoboCop – Featurette Concept-Art Licensing… by Lyricis
Search "SHAMO" for this figure, with "Akyio Tanaka" printed on the box for the name of this 1/6th figure, and he was released circa 2002 from Medicom Toy (in their "Cro-Magnon" line, thankfully not under their "Real Action Hero" line, or the internal figure-frame wold have been absolutely less than satisfactory), made by How2Work. Based on 'SHAMO' = "a Japanese action manga with a dark theme"
Every year Target puts out an aisle of under $10 “stocking stuffer” type gifts and toys. In the last few years they have also been getting some exclusives. Most stores have done their resets now so we know what is available for 2012. We knew there would be a 4″ “holiday” Batman figure, a sort [...]
With my recent convert to being a fan of both the anime and toys of "Tiger & Bunny", it comes as no surprise (at least for long-time readers of my blog) that I would flip when I discovered the 12" versions of both the main protagonists -with "Kotetsu T Kaburagi" and his HERO-ego "Wild Tiger" (seen above) and "Barnaby Brooks Jr." (seen below)! To be released by Tamashii Nation, thus far Kotetsu
HADES is produced by Fox Box Studio, and is the second 1/6th-scaled figure to be released (after Hermes / Reviewed HERE) from their "God Complex" character-concept line. Hades is frankly quite an awesome figure, as stated in my video review. And while the edition has since been listed as Sold Out (SRP was US$165), I would suggest you stay tuned to their Facebook page for upates!
