S.H. MonsterArts King Kong Or Donkey Kong?

Pre-orders have opened for nendoroid Melona, which might be the most disturbing Queen's Blade nendoroid to date. Not that Queen's Blade hasn't always been a somewhat awkward fit for the nendoroid format but there's something humorously disturbing to Melona here... but I can't quite put my finger on what it is.
Melona presumably features cast-off hair (in that you can remove it to change her face and get treated to some partial nendoroid nudity (nudoroidity?)), although I wonder if this means she can't actually rotate her head. Otherwise, she features an alternate set of arms and an alternate bottom half for her slime mode. The hair seems to have some kind of weird tinting where the edges almost look yellow.
Nendoroid Melona might be tacky or a little freaky, but she still has a cute-ish design. Still, is there really that big of a market for these?
Hot Toys And Sideshow Team Up For Man Of Steel!
On the first day of Sideshow they announced that Hot Toys And Sideshow Team Up For Man Of Steel toys! They didn’t really release much...

Thanks to Affes who has posted some new images Transformers Generations TG-01 Optimus Prime fresh out in Japan. Get a look at the Japanese version that Takara Tomy have put their own finishing touches on. You can see images of Optimus Prime in both modes and compared with the original Hasbro War For Cybertron and the Fall of Cybertron toy. The paint job on TG-01 is quite different and makes a very nice red metallic repaint. Check the images now of Transformers Generations TG-01 Optimus Prime looks at this new release.
[Business Wire] - The majority of Americans will be ditching fancy clothes, overpriced drinks and crowded venues this New Year’s Eve, opting instead for gatherings with friends and family in the comfort of their own home, according to a recent survey released by Hasbro .
OK, we have all seen those annoying "stick figure family" stickers on mini-vans and thought they were pretty lame, ha ha! Well, here are some new ones from DC Comics that are kinda cool! Yes, here are some brand-new white die-cut vinyl-sticker decals that you can put on the back windshield of your car, truck or van.
They made ones of Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Superman, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Catwoman, The Joker and Harley Quinn. I'm actually going to buy one ( either Batman or Batgirl ) to put on the side of my computer tower.You know, because I'm super cool! ( My Mom said I was ).
Whoops, I should also note that they added some new ones that I found out about very last minute while actually doing this post. They are: Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, and The Flash. Oh yeah, while the other stickers shown today all have a retro-style artwork, these last six I mention here are modern "New 52" versions.
To order some of these & see them all just, CLICK HERE!

I know that I can trust all you Loyal Bat-Blog Readers to keep this totally secret, after all, you're all very good citizens, but our new friend Riley has a secret... RILEY IS BATMAN!!
( Please, don't tell anybody, especially the Joker! )
Here's some information about a brand-new book coming out ( actually you can order it right now ) that a ton of serious Vintage Toy Collectors are gonna want, it's all about RACK TOYS! You remember these. They had colorful packaging and hung from your Grocery or Drug Store shelves ( my childhood memory was mostly seeing these toys at my local 7-eleven and I always went nuts for them ). They were designed to entice you while you sat in your parent's shopping cart.
Some Vintage Toy Collectors call these "shut-up toys" because, often, these terribly made playthings were low-priced enough to wear down even the most frugal adult and were most likely forgotten or broken by the time you left the parking lot.
"RACK TOYS: Cheap, Crazed Playthings" is a love letter to re-purposed, illogically licensed toys that were not meant to be remembered.
I have a few of these items in my Personal Toy Collection, mostly Batman ( of course ) but also some with Underdog Cartoon Graphics, Sid and Marty Krofft's Land of The Lost, and TV's Star Trek.
Shipping now, this 144 page book describes itself as “a celebration of fun toys that broke super easy” and breaks it’s subject matter into categories such as Science Fiction, Monsters, Superheroes, Generic Rack Toys, Knock Offs and demonstrates how these odd toys are actually more fun because of their illogical and sometimes, thoughtless nature.
“Even as kids we knew that the Incredible Hulk didn’t need a helicopter and that Dr Zauis from Planet of Apes had no business floating down on a parachute” explains Rack Toys author Brian Heiler “However, that didn’t stop us from having a fun afternoon with them, until they got stuck in a tree that is.”
Rack Toys is available for $19.95 at Amazon.com or through the book’s official website:

On the third Day Of Sideshow, they have just revealed, a new Conan The Barbarian diorama called Fury Of The Beast. OK, so it didn't quite rhyme and was a bit too wordy to be sung well, but who cares? The new Conan diorama looks cool, and if it's your cup of tea that is good enough, right? Follow the link above for a closer look.
