Sideshow now distributing Star Ace's Harry Potter figures

Sideshow has a goal to be the leading distributor of sixth scale action figures (apparently), whether they produce the figures or not. So that means they have now made a deal with Star Ace for their Harry Potter line of figur...

See if this Isuzu Sento figure is brilliant enough for you

I haven't been watching Amagi Brilliant Park but Kotobukiya's Isuzu Sento figure sure caught my eye. The design is quite cute, and I like that the pose is something other than an ordinary standing one. I also like the little ...

Max Factory's Chitoge goes up for pre-order

What's this? Max Factory's making gorilla figures? Well it's not an actual gorilla, it's Nisekoi's Chitoge Kirisaki! The design is pretty basic as you can see, but her lively expression and the detailed sculpt make this figur...

Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's ARTFX J Eren Yaeger
by Martin Siggers

It's difficult to argue against Attack on Titan being the biggest breakout hit in anime in years. The manga is selling millions of copies, the TV show has been a sensation both in and outside of Japan, cosplay of the characters has overrun conventions, and of course the figure world has sat up and taken notice. Taken too much notice in fact - we haven't seen this many figures from one franchise pouring onto the market in quite some time. For me, at least, it's made it pretty hard to get excited about any new release. Kotobukiya are going to do their darndest though, since their rendition of hero Eren Yaeger is one of the most spectacular looking out there. Let's see how they did.

Pop Culture Shock calls upon Mortal Kombat's Raiden

Pop Culture Shock's latest Mortal Kombat statue is arriving for pre-orders next month, and it's perhaps no shock that Raiden is next in the series. The popular thunder god from the MK franchise will be 1/4-scale and available...

DST's Marvel Select movie Ant-Man unveiled photo
DST's Marvel Select movie Ant-Man unveiled
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys has given MTV News an exclusive first look at its Marvel Select Ant-Man, based on the character's appearance in the upcoming Ant-Man film where comedian Paul Rudd will play the titular role.

The release will apparently include a smaller, static (ie, non-articulate) version of Ant-Man which replicates his shrunken form. While the mini Ant-Man won't necessarily be in scale to his movie counterpart, there's only so much you can do without compromising detail. The figure also includes two alternate pairs of hands.

While I won't pretend to be an Ant-Man fan (my friend Julian, on the other hand...), but I imagine it should be an amusing film. DST has done some pretty new work here, given the source material and all. Frankly, I'm just impressed that DST can even keep up with all of these Marvel movies. I know I've been struggling.

Tomopop Review: Sentinel's Metamor Force Dino Getter 1 photo
Tomopop Review: Sentinel's Metamor Force Dino Getter 1
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

There have been a lot of Getter Robos, but never one quite like this. What was originally a group of three aircraft that could be reconfigured into three different robot modes (Getter 1, 2, and 3) has now been reimagined as a trio of robots capable of transforming into dinosaurs. Winged Dino Getter 1 transforms into a pterodactyl, four-armed Dino Getter 2 changes into a T-rex, and Dino Getter 3 turns into a two-headed sea monster that kinda resembles a plesiosaur type thing. Sounds like a certain Transformers dinosaur team doesn't it?

Sentinel makes great figures, but are they out of their league making high-end transforming robot figures like Takara Tomy and Bandai? Follow me after the jump as we take a close look at Dino Getter 1!

Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Tomo Asama
by Chris Seto

Once more, we return to the world of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon, and Kotobukiya are once again the providers of another figure of a cast member from the show. We've had a look at Honda Futayo before and this time, we're looking at Asama Tomo, another one of the busty trio (still waiting for my Aoi Kimi though).

Tomo has been a rather popular choice for figures from the show, having been depicted in other forms prior to this release, but the last major figure of Tomo had her in a rather uncharacteristic pose. The Kotobukiya release has her in a pose which is much more in tune with her character. But of course, a better pose doesn't make a better figure. Having said that, Futayo ended up pretty nicely, so can Kotobukiya make it two for two? Only one way to find out...

Let's get it on!!

EE takes Funko's Pop! Cthulhu, makes it glow in dark, and plans to unleash some real March madness
by Scarecroodle

Funko's previously revealed Pop! Cthulhu not scary enough for you? What if he had red eyes? And glowed in the dark?

Entertainment Earth will be exclusively selling such a variant which looks just as cool as the first version (meaning it's time to buy both?). While I'm not the biggest fan of glow-in-the-dark gimmicks, the EE exclusive looks great by daylight as well. When you couple these two fantastic releases with DST's upcoming vinyl bank bust, 2015 might be the year of Cthulhu.

Funko's EE-exclusive glow-in-the-dark Pop! Cthulhu can be pre-ordered for US$11 and is slated for a March release. Are you ready for some real March Madness?

Now sold separately: DST's Marvel Select Electro gets an individual release photo
Now sold separately: DST's Marvel Select Electro gets an individual release
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys and Disney Store have broken up the band: The Marvel Select classic comic Electro will now be available through a Disney Store exclusive single configuration.

Back in the Summer, we reported that Diamond Select Toys would be releasing a classic-costumed Electro in a 2-pack with a MS Spider-Man. At the time I had bemoaned that this decision and apparently many other fans did as well, since Electro will now be available in a single pack.

This solidly-designed Electro comes with the same "power rod" accessory seen in the 2-pack. Since there are no new accessories, fans who picked up the first set might not feel too shafted by this later release (well, other than needing to buy another Spidey to get Electro).

Of course, this move comes at a time when the 2-pack is currently discounted from US$50 to US$30 on DisneyStore.com (perhaps poor sales prompted the break-up?), so you're really only saving US$5 by buying Electro individually. It might be a different situation at individual retailers, though. Be sure to check out all the images in the gallery.

Super Sonico goes under the sea

There have been some really interesting Sonico figures in the mix, including a few fairytale themed versions, but nothing quite like this! The curvy musician has been transformed into an adorable mermaid, although still retai...

Tomopop Review: MegaHouse's Natsume Yuujinchou Petit Chara Land
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume's Book of Friends) will probably always rank as one of my favorite top anime series of all time. For four seasons I laughed and cried with this series like few others. I was pretty sad when the final season, Natsume Yuujinchou Shi, ended back in 2012, but thankfully not all is lost. Not only is the manga still ongoing, there are still companies like MegaHouse more than happy to keep making figures. In this case we'll be looking at their recent entry in the long running Petit Chara Land series featuring Natsume Yuujinchou

Can these little figures really hold up to the discerning eye of a fan? Find out after the jump!
