Gremlins, ponies, and sharks, oh my! Funko once again brought a cool mix of collectibles to Toy Fair, as it added even more offerings to its eclectic lines. As the old saying goes, "If it hasn't appeared in a Funko line yet, why don't you wait a month?"

Gremlins, The Fifth Element, Jaws, and more now have figures in the ReAction line. Ghostbusters and Back to the Future characters are appearing as Vinyl Idolz. The Hulk and Rainbow Dash are joining the Hikari line! Frozen Mystery Minis!

Hit the jump for all of the insanity.

Max Factory's Aoi Sakurai derails my heart photo
Max Factory's Aoi Sakurai derails my heart
by Tianxiao Ma

I've been feeling rather uninspired by 2015's pre-order outlook so far. It looks like Max Factory will come to my rescue with Rail Wars' Aoi Sakurai.

Kahotan has a preview up of the 1/7-scale figure, and it's a cool design. The pose, detailed sculpt, and disheveled look all make for a memorable piece - certainly a contrast from the way most of Max Factory's figures are in a generic standing pose.

Aoi will be up for pre-order soon, but make sure to check out Kahotan's full preview in the meantime.

Toy Fair 2015: Kotobukiya - DC Super Powers ArtFX+ photo
Toy Fair 2015: Kotobukiya - DC Super Powers ArtFX+
by Scarecroodle

Ever since Kotobukiya announced that it would be creating a series of ArtFX+ figures inspired by (or in tribute to) the DC Super Powers Collection I've been sitting on the edge of my seat (figuratively speaking, because I would fall off after a while). At NY Toy Fair 2015, Kotobukiya unveiled the line... and it's a total curveball!

This is a line of statues which don't look like statues. They look plastic (and not in that ratchet kind of way) thanks to a surprisingly flat paint tone and simplistic sculpt (as well as the cloth capes). The figures feature lines to give the illusion of joints so, at a glance, you'd think they were normal toys. In some cases, those marks represent limbs you could swap out with an interchangeable joint (as seen with Superman's "power punch" arm in the case).

The initial line-up is all heroes: Superman, Flash, Green Lantern (with lantern accessory!), Batman, Robin, Hawkman, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman (they release in that order, starting this August). It's worth noting that these were the eight superheroes who appeared in wave 1 of Kenner's toy line and, if it's successful, I wonder if Kotobukiya will follow up with the villains from the wave.

The coolest part, however, is the apparent US$30 MSRP which makes them cheaper than the usual ArtFX+ figure (maybe they ARE made of plastic?). Pre-orders are already open for Superman. I can't wait to get my hands on some of these.

Be sure to check out the gallery.
