Hikari Frankenstein goes platinum! photo
Hikari Frankenstein goes platinum!
by Scarecroodle

Funko's newest Hikari is a platinum deco for Frankenstein, currently available for pre-order.

"Platinum" Frankenstein, who is limited to a 750-piece run, sports a relatively plain metallic deco. While I'm not necessarily sure that the metal resembles platinum (or just polished iron, etc), it's not a bad concept although I'd certainly rather see him bronzed. It's certainly not a bad design, but the black eyes are somewhat of a distraction and keep Frankenstein from looking too classy. My favorite uses of the mold thus far are probably the "Distressed" and "Glitter Shock" versions seen back in October; of course, he still hasn't had a "Mystic Powers" deco, though, which will likely be my new favorite when/if it occurs.

Funko's "Platinum" Frankenstein can be pre-ordered for US$50 and is slated for a February release. At this point, I'm just wondering when we'll see a Hikari Dracula or Wolfman. Perhaps one will be shown at Toy Fair?

DCC's Bombshells Batwoman takes the whole 'bat' thing in a different direction photo

Like a bad cartoon pun, DC Collectibles' upcoming DC Comics Bombshells Batwoman re-envisions Kathy Kane as either a baseball player or a bat-wielding vigilante. The figure was recently featured as part of a Bombshells promotional video.

While I like the statue (far more than I thought I would), I don't get why they went with this bland angle instead of doing something closer to the concept art. Is her head not swung around enough for that? All things considered, however, I'd say that DCC hit this one out of the park.

For those wanting to cover their bases, retailers have already begun pitching pre-orders. You can pick this one up from Entertainment Earth for US$100 and get free shipping on your order.

All hands on deck! Batten down the hatches because Funko has unleashed a flood of collectibles for Marvel's upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Rarely do we see this much merchandises for a franchise, let alone all at once but Funko intends to inundate collectors with selections from FIVE different lines in March (and a little of April).

See all the Avenger-y details after the jump.
