The eighth wave of NECA's Predators line is now available for pre-order. The wave features two versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger's character, Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer, and a masked jungle predator as the characters appeared in the original Predator.
For those unfamiliar with Predator, it's the story of an unstoppable killing machine pitted against an alien. A team of commandos on a mission down in Central America run afoul of the eponymous Predator. The Predator quickly picks off the team one by one until only "Dutch" remains, setting the stage for a memorable showdown.
Predator has had a lot of sequels, but most of them have been pretty terrible. The original film was really what made the series iconic and Arnold was certainly a large part of that. So while this wave may include yet another Predator, the real draw this time around is the human. Both versions of Arnold / "Dutch" look spectacular. The "Extraction" version features an incredibly detailed, ruffled shirt. Although the quality is a little weaker on the sleeveless "Jungle Patrol" version (mostly for the kind of shiny arms), I think I greatly prefer that look and will likely buy one (despite having yet to buy any of the Predators) when this wave releases in February.
New from Delta Children’s Products, the Dora the Explorer Art Play Table features a wipe board desktop and paper-roll for coloring, along with two small cups perfect for holding pens, pencils, and crayons. Four medium-sized storage bins sit underneath the desktop and provide ample space for toys, art supplies, games, and more. Great for any [...]

MegaHouse brought an boatload of anime figures to MegaHobby Expo 2012 Autumn. And, I am pleased to see, there was quite a variety in the shows represented. We're seeing the lovely girls of The Idolm@ster and Idolm@ster 2 rubbing shoulders with the striking heroes of Tiger & Bunny and Saint Seiya Omega. There was more to this company's goods than those series, though (not to mention their Persona and One Piece stuff). Here's the who's who of the MegaHouse booth:
