TruForce streamlines new Mega Man X figure

Although it's true that Capcom hasn't given us a Mega Man game in years, at least we can count on toy companies to help keep our love for the franchise alive. The latest version comes from TruForce Collectibles, who are givin...

SDCC 2014: Pop Culture Shock

If you like large, well-painted figures, Pop Culture Shock may have what you need. If they don't have what you need, give them a year and see what random licenses they pick up. This year they carved out their own piece of the floor at SDCC, and marked it with some Akuma busts and a big red demon.

SDCC 2014: Capcom's panel

Capcom's panel at SDCC was mostly game-oriented, which should be of no surprise to anyone. If you were looking for the sweet loot, though, there was a merchandising segment which detailed some of the goods available at the show. You can expect the usual franchises represented, but there was an interesting announcement toward the end. Click on to see the panel notes!

Capo Toys launches Street Fighter Kickstarter photo
Capo Toys launches Street Fighter Kickstarter
by Scarecroodle

Capo Toys has finally provided some release details for its Street Fighter line and... (wait for it...) it's going through Kickstarter.

Ryu, the first figure in the line, now has an active Kickstarter campaign which, at the time of writing, is US$3,225 towards reaching its US$85,000 goal. There's currently no word whether the entire line will be run through Kickstarter. The figures will feature over 19 points of articulation (mostly ball-joints) with a limited use of micro-fiber (including Ryu's headband and belt, Sagat's shorts, etc). While the wording is a little confusing, it appears that (at least) several versions of Ryu will be exclusive to the Kickstarter campaign including both solid-color artist proof editions.

Back when we first saw the prototypes back in January, I thought that the line looked really promising. I had never heard of Capo Toys, but I figured the company had to be pretty legit to land licensing from Capcom. As such, I'm more than a little surprised to see the company launch a Kickstarter. Here's to hoping that it'll get funded (there's still plenty of time left and it's a popular franchise) so we can see the later entries in the line.

Capcom's Morrigan now ready to tempt you into pre-orders

You may recall I was not a huge fan of Capcom's new rendition of Morrigan once the painted previews showed up. Not everyone is me however, and if you were of the opposite mind you've got the chance to put your money where you...

Capcom's Morrigan appears in colour, looks set to disappoint
by Martin Siggers

We had such high hopes for Capcom's new take on Morrigan when she was first announced, and even when shown off as a grey prototype there were reasons to get excited. But now the company has posted up shots of a near-final, painted version and...oh dear.

This just doesn't really look very good at all. The paintjob is flat and uninspired, and does a pretty bad job of emphasising how grotesque those boobs are. Worst of all is the face, which is exposed as flat, creepy and unnatural. A good paintjob can make or break a figure, and in this case it's very much turned me off of what could have been an interesting piece. What do you think readers - am I right, or have I just gone blind(er)?

Capcom's Morrigan gets some prototype shots

We were very excited when Capcom announced they'd be turning out a new figure of Darkstalkers icon Morrigan a few weeks back. At the time we only got a (rather lovely) piece of artwork to illustrate what she was going to look like, but now the company have updated with some unpainted protoype shots.

It's looking like a solid start, with the sculpt capturing the unique pose very well, while at the same time smoothing out the bits which need to be sorted in the 2D -> 3D transition. I'm a little worried about the face, which currently looks more anguished than alluring, but I suspect it's a case where paint will make the difference. What do you think readers, does this first look turn you off or are you more excited than ever?

Capcom announces a figure of Morrigan from Darkstalkers

While it's never been a perennial favourite on the level of Street Fighter or Tekken, Capcom's monster themed 2D fighter Darkstalkers has maintained a loyal cult following over the years. In particular leading lady ...
