Hot Toys brings out another Loki, fans everywhere cheer! photo
Hot Toys brings out another Loki, fans everywhere cheer!
by Rio McCarthy

Alright guys and gals, if you didn't get enough of my fangirling over Loki the last time, here he comes again! Hot Toys is releasing a new figure of Loki based on the look from Thor: The Dark World. Cheeky Loki looks a bit more devious and upset this time around. He has over 30 points of articulation in this body as well!

He has 6 interchangeable hands, including: 1 pair of partially clenched palms, 1 pair of relaxed palms, 1 right palm for holding the dagger, and 1 left open palm. He, of course, comes with his full costume, as well as the previously mentioned dagger. He also comes with a pair of handcuffs with chains, legcuffs with chains, and a neck collar with chains. Looks like I'm not the only one who likes herself some Loki in devious ways. There is also the stand and nameplate that have the movie logo. Now, there is a special edition, only available in certain markets, that comes with a bonus accessory of a 1/6th scale Aether. It hasn't been listed as of yet as to where those markets are, but I'm sure we'll see.

He's set to come out somewhere in the later half of 2014, so get those pocketbooks ready and start saving. I personally like the first Loki figure better, and he's standing sexily among my figure collection. However, if you didn't get him the first time around, he'll be coming back to see you!

Feeling less than patriotic over ArtFX+ Captain America photo
Feeling less than patriotic over ArtFX+ Captain America
by Scarecroodle

Kotobukiya has unveiled the rest of their recently teased painted ArtFX+ Avengers Now Captain America with a new photo gallery and... I really don't like this design. Kotobukiya has done a solid job in presenting the character, but the core design it's based on (the Marvel Now! version) is just so goofy.

Granted, parts of the figure still look great but it's hard to get used to the design as a whole. I probably should have curbed my enthusiasm earlier in the process but the unpainted prototype looked good and Kotobukiya gave us a great teaser photo which made me forget the reality of how wonky this design was. The greatest irony, of course, being the fact that it looks worse painted DESPITE Kotobukiya having done a great job on the paint. The whole situation is certainly driving me somewhat crazy especially since, in Marvel's defense (ie, the people at fault for the design), the decision to give Captain America something resembling padded armor makes a lot of sense. It does, however, leave me without somebody to really blame.

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's Thanksgiving Day in the States and if you're anything like me you're probably bursting with great food and looking forward to a long tryptophan-induced nap. But while others were slaving over a hot stove I've been busy stuffing this week's LinkUP with all sorts of great stuff guaranteed not to put you to sleep!

This week we've got Japanese Happy Meal toys, plush Christmas ornaments, lots of handmade stuff, several teasers, and more. It's all gravy!
