I find your lack of Hobgoblin disturbing
Is there such a thing as too many Mystery Minis? My shelves are beginning to think so! However, all the same I'll be happy to add a few figures from Funko's upcoming Classic Spider-Man series to my collection. The Classic Spi...

X-Men photo
Warning: May tear through your wallet
If I have a weakness for one Wolverine costume, it's for variations of his brown/tan outfit first introduced during John Byrne's' X-Men in the 80s. While variations of the yellow/blue outfit would ultimately prove more preval...

Threezero Genos photo
The cyborg never looked so imposing
As the second season of One Punch Man draws near(ish), Threezero is gearing up to release another figure from the series. This time it's Genos, Saitama's cyborg disciple! This is a slick 1/6-scale articulated figure with batt...

Flare Rei Ayanami photo
But is it really Rei?
Wow, it's been a while since I last saw full blown Evangelion scale figure go up for pre-order. This certainly wouldn't count as a traditional Rei figure since the design has been made over by illustrator Shunya Yam...


figma Gwendolyn photo
Prettiest figma yet but it'll cost you
Good Smile Company and Max Factory have officially opened pre-orders for figma Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere! If the Parfom version didn't tickle your fancy, this figma just might. Going by the promo shots, Gwendolyn is in the r...

With all of the excitement surrounding Toy Fair and Wonder Festival this year (which fell on the same weekend again), naturally some things slipped between the cracks. One major announcement that we missed* was that the 2016 ...

End of the road

Here we are, the final garage kit gallery which, as tradition dictates, is the final miscellaneous gallery.  Well, I don't think anyone expected a figure of the girl with the pearl earring! Still, it's a mighty impressiv...

I'm not really a fan of Granblue Fantasy but credit where credit is due, the Collaboration figure between Granblue Fantasy and Streetfighter 2 looks pretty damn great, with (I think) Djeeta cosplaying Chun Li! What's more ama...

We're reaching the end of our Winter wonder festival coverage and we're wrapping up the coverage of the anime kits with a number of more recent characters. I don't think any of us expected kits from Drifters but here we are w...

I thought I'd try something a little different and combine the rhythm game figures into their own gallery so they don't bloat out the other video game kit galleries. So here, you will find the idolm@ster and Vocaloid kits. A ...

Regardless of the resurgence of Fate kits, it's safe to say that the KanColle juggernaut is showing no sign of slowing down. Warspite makes her WF debut this time around (Rule Britannia!!) and, as always, the Abyssal units ar...

One of the best things about the figures seen in the dealer area is that you can find some kits from titles which have been all but forgotten now, particularly from older shows. And you can also find some seriously new charac...

Just look at the banner! Just look at it!! Bathe in the awesomeness that is the final scene between X and zero in Megaman X! Done enough? Then check out the figure of Yuzuruha who, sadly was a bit too NSFW to get onto the banner. Still a very sexy figure though! Oh yeah, there's also an Ann figure from persona 5. Now, Back to Yuzuruha!!   [via moeyo]

How HBO saved Valentine's Day (A gift guide)

Feb 09 // Scarecroodle
How deep is your love? Is it a deep bond between souls or is it more of a puppy love? Either way, you'll love these direwolf puppies... err, cubs.  Summer, Shaggy Dog, Grey Wind, and Lady are all available as adorable 9-inch plushies. Can't choose between them? Why not buy all four? (Oh, right, money...) Perhaps equally eye-catching is this Drogon plush, which would look equally at home on a shelf, couch, or spewing flames on a fleet of ships. He stands 8-inches tall with a 14-inch wingspan. The HBO Store also carries a lot of Funko collectibles, including this Pop! Rides Dany on Drogon. And yes, they somehow still have series 1 Game of Thrones Mystery Minis if you missed grabbing them when they came out. Do you like Funko but are indifferent about Game of Thrones? How about a Pop! John Oliver? The star of Last Week Tonight (and guy who replaced Jon Stewart on the Daily Show for an entire summer) is ready to bring his British wit and self-deprecating sense of humor to your shelves (or your partner's, but honestly, you're going to want to keep this one for yourself). At any rate, you'll be surprised by the stuff you find at the HBO Store (I know I was). Some things make for very practical gifts (after all, who doesn't love a plushie?) while other things are impractical (but that just makes it more of a surprise, right?). And yes, the HBO store also has conventional gift ideas like mugs, shirts, shot glasses, and even jewelry, if you feel like being boring. [ Check out everything at the HBO Store ]
Valentine's photo
(Or might save it. Who knows?)
Hey guys & gals, it's just five more days until Valentine's Day. Have you bought anything nice for your partner? (Or for yourself?) If you're sick of giving jewelry (and who isn't?), maybe it's time to head over to the HBO Store to check out their wide array of... okay, well, it's mostly a lot of Game of Thrones stuff. But it's neat stuff! Honest! Check out the full gift guide after the jump.
