Get in some more figFIX Shimakaze preview action

figFIX Shimakaze is up for pre-order, but if you wanted to ogle her midriff some more, Max Factory's figma blog has another preview for you. My theory about this is that since the figma didn't come with the half-damage body (...

Here's Aquamarine's Koki Yamoto in full color

Koki Yamoto hails from the Japanese novel series Ninja Slayer. And, well, she certainly looks like a slaying kind of person. I don't really have much to go on because of the rather plain design, so I'll just go ahead and writ...

Diamond Comics' new issue of PREVIEWS showcases Diamond Select Toys' Marvel Select Cable, just one of the many things I was excited to see at SDCC. It's probably worth he's also currently available for pre-order.

DST's Marvel Select Cable might be my favorite figure version of the character, in no small part because it gives Cable that proper bulky look. I suspect that the body armor might impede his movement but gosh darn does it look awesome.

DST's MS Cable can be pre-ordered for around US$25 and is slated for a March release.

Funko's Pop! Star Sapphire Wonder Woman & Frost Giant Loki to be sold exclusively at NYCC photo
Funko's Pop! Star Sapphire Wonder Woman & Frost Giant Loki to be sold exclusively at NYCC
by Scarecroodle

Funko has shown off two versions (each) of its upcoming NYCC-exclusive Pop! Star Sapphire Wonder Woman and Frost Giant Loki, to be sold at Fugitive Toys' booth (#410).

Both versions will be available in a standard edition as well as a variant; Star Sapphire WW has a metallic costume version while Frost Giant Loki seems to glow in the dark. I have to admit being a little surprised that the standard version of Star Sapphire is an exclusive in the first place, given that there's some fan demand for the character and she's more than just a simple repaint. Usually the more sculpting a figure gets, the more mileage its maker tries to get although I guess the body work must be minor enough that Funko isn't overly invested in the figure.

No word on pricing, but Fugitive Toys' previous exclusive Funko Pop! White Lantern Batman apparently ran for US$17 while its glow-in-the-dark version was US$25.
