Hot Toys Boba Fett is more than you bargained for

I think just about everyone knew that Hot Toys was going to release Boba Fett sooner or later. Given the character's popularity, it was inevitable. What people did not see coming though was that the release of Boba Fett was g...

It's been nearly a year ago since back in January 3A made an offhanded comment about having the Transformers license despite no formal announcement. Looks like that comment is finally bearing fruit as they finally reveal a Bu...

Go green with ARTFX J Syaoran Li pre-orders
by Martin Siggers

While we've had a lot of Cardcaptor Sakura merchandise recently, almost all of it has been centred around the titular character herself. The story wouldn't be the masterpiece that it is though without another key piece of the puzzle, Sakura's on-again-off-again rival and precocious crush, Syaoran Li.

Fortunately though, Kotobukiya have heard my pleas and added Syaoran to their ARTFX J line, and he's up for pre-order now. We've known he was coming since Wonder Festival, and hopes were high after the accompanying Sakura turned out incredibly well, but this may be even better. The pose is gorgeous, the colour pops fantastically and that base is almost worth the cost of admission in its own right.

I'm always excited to see more figures too, and the combination of everything made this an absolute must own for me. If you're in the same camp, or at the very least like what you see, hit the links below. Syaoran comes in at ¥11,880 and he'll be headed to homes next May.

Funko shows off Black Butler vinyl Pop! figures

As someone who balks at the ever-increasing prices of licensed PVC toys and statues of my favorite characters, I'm totally cool with seeing Funko pick up Japanese properties for their Animation line of Pop! vinyl figures. Che...
