So, if you have several hundred bucks you just don’t know what to do with, I have an idea. Buy one of these mobiles – pink or blue - designed by Jonathan Adler in collaboration with Higgins Studio. Then send one to me.
One of the more popular posts in the history of this blog is my comparison of the McFarlane and NECA Robocops. Now that I also own the Figma Robocop, I thought it was time to revisit the topic. If we set aside anything 12″ or larger, there are two significant Robocops missing from this comparison: [...]
Simon Petrikov, Marceline, and Flame Princess Munnys
BRB. Crying forever over how perfect these are. Simon’s backstory is the most gut-wrenchingly sad thing in the Adventure Time universe, and his time spent taking care of a young Marceline the Vampire Queen makes him all the more tragic.
And Flame Princess, yeah, she’s pretty okay too, I guess.
These were done by Shaun Nakasone. Check out more sick work over on his blog, sciuruscustoms.blogspot.com.

Matt JOnes (Lunartik) was again commissioned to design the Doctor Who Series 2 figures for Titan Merchandise. Thereare 4 hidden chase figures included and each 3" tall figure is blind-boxed. A planned release of August 1st 2013, these figures will be retailing from £7.99 each (around $12). – Matt will have 80 “AP’s” Artist Proofs [...]
D20 T-shirts from Super Orange
Seeing as how my life has been consumed by Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons as of late, these appeal to me on a pretty intense level. Pick one up from Super Orange’s Etsy page starting at just $14.
Seven years ago, Hot Toys released their first 1/6-scale RoboCop figure, and we've known they're working on an improved version for some time ... but I don't think I was prepared for the Movie Masterpiece Diecast Series RoboCop at all. It is a thing of beauty; everything is here, from the fist spike to the pistol to four different, beautiful-looking faces and battle-damaged armor. Again, like the figma, no open-faced figure, but probably for the same reason (unable to get the use of Peter Weller's exact likeness). Better yet, Robo comes with the ability to say sixof his classic phrases from the film, including "Thank you for your cooperation. Goodnight." and "Dead or alive, you are coming with me."
There's also going to be a version that comes with RoboCop's docking chair and will have LED illumination in the chair (which kind of serves as a secondary base for the figure). Both versions are coming in the second quarter of 2014.
I guess Hot Toys must have seen the news about NECA's ED-209, too, because they've also sent out info on their ED-209. Set for a first quarter 2014 release, the hulking robot has been redone as well and features tons of new detail, plus some new articulation, weapons accessories for the arms, and three sound clips of its own.
Pre-orders should be coming soon ... but looks like I'm getting myself a Hot Toys figure or two next year. Hey, Pedro; is it too late to change my DO WANT pick for the next year or so?
We’re Going To Philadelphia Comic Con!
Wizard World’s Philly Comic Con kicks off later today and Albotas will be there all four days to gawk over all the comics and collectibles, snap some cosplay pics, hit up some panels, and basically just geek out in general.
If any of our readers plan on going, hit us up in the comments!
The U.S. Marine Corp Reserve Toys for Tots Program in Oakland County has teamed up with Little Caesars Pizza Kit Fundraising Program for a community-wide event.
Remember the graphic illustration of Rotobox Vinyl Anatomica's "Revolver Girl ARCTIC 6ix edition" I posted earlier? Well, now we get to witness the white-clad lady in full toy-glory, thanks to producers Kuso Vinyl! This colorway with shinobi face will be an exclusive for San Diego ComicCon, so take note people! Product details forthcoming.
Sonic Lost World is the next Sonic the Hedgehog franchise title to be published on Nintendo platforms as part of an exclusive partnership between Sega of America Inc. and Nintendo.

Mosaic Fun Dinosaur World from Great Gizmos allows children aged five and over to make their own prehistoric-themed mosaics.
Just in via the Japanese message boards is a new image of the Transformers Go! samurai ninja combiner action figures including Gekisomaru (lion), Hishomaru (bird), and Sensuimaru (shark). Get a look at the promotional illustration that shows all the figures in their robot, animal and combined modes. This set is looking much interesting to me than the Autobots figures. Check out the image below for more details now.
And while the featurette is utilitarian in promoting the film (via SHH), the 11th TV Spot below instead, tells me it's going to be quite an emotionally intense ride as well, because Superman cries. You know shit hits the fan when the guy tears up, IMHO.
So the news is out there, thanks to Flickr user ilmuffino and the eagle eyes of Andy at TOYSREVIL: Super7 has a new figure. His name is Caveman Dinosaur and he's been designed by Joshua Herbolsheimer of Rose Vampire fame. Quietly placed into the Super7 Lucky Bags this year (which we mentioned in passing previously) he's a little dinosaur with a big toothy grin and a club in his hand.
It's not the first time Super7 have done something like this (if I remember right, my favorite Super7 figure — Foster — had a similar debut a couple years ago) and I doubt it will be the last, but Caveman Dinosaur looks pretty darn awesome. If you want to try your luck, Super7 Lucky Bags are still available for US$300 a pop.
Following up on our previous report, we have more news and details on the Transformers Expo Beijing China on August 15, 2013.
