Howard the Duck to join Funko's Pop! line photo
Howard the Duck to join Funko's Pop! line
by Scarecroodle

Marvel's quirky off-beat Howard the Duck, star of the 1986 movie of the same name (as well as his own self-titled comic book), will soon join Funko's Pop! line. The figure is based on the character's recent appearance in the smash Summer-hit Guardians of the Galaxy where the Master of Quack-Fu had a minor yet memorable cameo.

The cameo and figure has once again given hope that fans may someday see a non-terrible Howard the Duck movie (or, at least, a bigger role in another Marvel movie).

Funko celebrates our love for Dancing Groot

Hopefully by now you’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy. If you haven’t, still I’m sure the internet has  shown you the cuteness that is Dancing Groot. So in response to everyone’s new obsession, Fu...

Bow down to the White Queen: Sideshow's Premium Format Emma Frost up for pre-order
by Scarecroodle

Sideshow's 1/4-scale Emma Frost Premium Format Figure is now available for pre-order. The figure features two interchangeable heads (or just hair parts?): one for the modern long-haired Emma Frost and another for the classic villainous Hellfire Club original White Queen.

The Premium Format Emma Frost looks great and I love the fact that Sideshow thought to include a variation of the older, shorter hairstyle.The pose, sculpting, and mix of materials all look great, leaving me to wonder why they waited so long to do something this cool. Sure, it's no Sentinel Maquette, but it's still easily among Sideshow's nicest X-Men collectibles.

Sideshow's 1/4-scale Emma Frost Premium Format Figure can be pre-ordered for US$370 and is slated for an April release.

ArtFX+ X-Force Deadpool receives cutting-edge preview gallery photo
ArtFX+ X-Force Deadpool receives cutting-edge preview gallery
by Scarecroodle

Kotobukiya has released an image gallery for its upcoming ArtFX+ X-Force Deadpool, a redeco of the ArtFX+ Deadpool coverage (currently available for pre-order).

The X-Force variant is something of a common sense re-deco, especially since it's a more contemporary outfit (although Deadpool was created in the 90s so everything with him is somewhat contemporary). I'm guessing that Kotobukiya's inevitable ArtFX+ Wolverine will probably also receive an X-Force deco (and a '90s Jim Lee deco... and a brown & tan John Byrne deco... and so on) as will a somewhat likely ArtFX+ Psylocke (especially given that the character has had several Fine Arts statues and a few Bishoujos now).

It's a decent-looking repaint, although I've never been a fan of this outfit. Be sure to check out the additional images in the gallery.

Hot Toys' Rocket Raccoon and Groot collectible set adds what may be a spoilers-y bonus photo
Hot Toys' Rocket Raccoon and Groot collectible set adds what may be a spoilers-y bonus
by Scarecroodle

I'll be honest: I almost always wait to see Marvel movies until after they leave theaters these days. The whole movie theater experience, with its ever-increasing ticket prices, over-priced snacks, often sticky floors (or worse, sticky seats!), and inability to stop the film while I run out to the bathroom, is something of an expensive inconvenience when compared to the amenities of home.

As such, I haven't seen The Guardians of the Galaxy (despite a few rave reviews from friends... who also thought The Avengers was fantastic) and can't tell you if the newly revealed added bonus item for Hot Toys' Rocket Raccoon and Groot collectible set entails a spoiler. If it does, well, then it won't be the first (or last) time a toy spoiled a major plot element for me.

Possible spoilers after the jump.

While both the Toys "R" Us and comic shop configurations will feature Starlord, Groot, Rocket Raccoon (as a mini figure), Drax, Ronan, and a Sakaaran Trooper in their 2-packs, Toys "R" is billed as exclusively carrying Yondu. The specialty packs will exclusively feature Gamora, a Nova Corpsman, and Nebula.

SDCC 2014: Diamond Select Toys 'The Best of All Worlds' Panel photo
SDCC 2014: Diamond Select Toys 'The Best of All Worlds' Panel
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys' action-packed SDCC included its "Best of All Worlds" Panel, which featured a look at DST's non-Minimates offerings. Some of the slides covered items revealed at the show like the Marvel Select Carnage (booth photos in gallery), MS Cable, and MLP:FIM Rarity vinyl bank as well as upcoming items like the 1966 Batman tv series unmasked Catwoman and Penguin resin busts.

Information from the panel apparently includes the news that Toys "R" Us will be carrying an exclusive color edition of 6-inch Select Sin City figures (see gallery) and that Alien-licensed bank busts will released this Fall along with an Alien Pulse Rifle bottle opener. Additionally, the B-9 Robot will apparently be getting his own bottle opener (albeit it's nowhere near as cool as the Mecha Godzilla bottle opener).

While I'm happy that DST is continuing its Batman tv series of resin and vinyl bank busts, I somehow keep missing announcements. For instance, I was surprised to see a photo of a masked Catwoman bank bust from the booth appear on other websites; in fact, every time I blink I imagine that DST may use the opportunity to sneak a new one by me. That aside, it's great to see that a Burgess Meredith Penguin resin bust is on the way.

Otherwise, the Marvel Select Carnage has allegedly been mentioned as including as many alternate parts as the acclaimed MS Venom, although those parts have yet to be revealed.

Be sure to check out the gallery for a few highlights and a look at the MS Carnage (along with Cable) at the booth.

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - Hot Toys

Hot Toys' 1/6-scale figures were featured at Sideshow's booth as usual. This year they had a couple of vehicles, some figures from The Dark Knight and Avengers, and lots of Iron Men. So many Iron Men. You should know the drill by now: hit the jump to see my impressions and favorites.
