A big Hikari Groot may be big news photo
A big Hikari Groot may be big news
by Scarecroodle

The Guardians of the Galaxy have finally made their way into Funko's Hikari line with a Premium (ie, over-sized) Groot. At 10-inches tall, he's kind of a big deal. Plus, with a sizable 5,000 piece run, there should be enough Groot to go around for everybody.

Groot appears in what I can only assume is a standard deco (since he lacks a moniker). It's a neat enough design with a good mix of color that should please fans. I'm just wondering if we might eventually see a Hikari Mini line with a Rocket Raccoon to go next to him (or a standard-sized Rocket Racoon, for that matter).

Hikari Groot can be pre-ordered for US$80 and is slated for a January release. As always, you can win one through Funko's Facebook contest. This week's question is, " What would you do to win a Groot Hikari Premium figure?!" (Maybe ask nicely?)

Eva Racing Nendoroids kick off with Rei Ayanami photo
Eva Racing Nendoroids kick off with Rei Ayanami
by Tianxiao Ma

Aside from a custom creation a while back, the Evangelion pilots have never been made into Nendoroid form. It looks like that will change soon with the Evangelion Racing Nendoroids on the horizon.

Kahotan has a preview up of Nendoroid Rei Ayanami in her race queen outfit. It takes design queues from her usual plug suit, but is quite a bit more revealing. As far as accessories go, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot: you'll have an alternate smiling (barely) face, and two parasols. Rei will be a Good Smile Online Shop exclusive, and will go up for pre-order on Monday.

Nendoroid I-401 is sinking me with her cuteness

The KanColle designs have translated pretty well to Nendoroid form so far, with I-401 continuing that trend. Right away I liked her happy face, which is just too heartwarming. I do tend to like expressive Nendoroids above all...

AD-31 Optimus Prime is the figure we should have started with

At this point Transformers fans have come to learn one constant when it comes movie figures: never by the launch releases. I mean, we buy them anyway, we can't help ourselves, but we do so knowing that at some point an even b...

Sergey Safonov character inspires an album, unique flash drive

Sergey Safonov's artwork is often stylish, but inspirational? He can claim that now. A Moscow-based stoner rock band called Montezuma's Revenge was inspired by Sergey's Govra character to create an entire EP (called the Govra...
