One of the best Good Smile shop exclusives yet!
Metal Gear fans are finally getting the Solid Snake figure they've waited nearly 30 years for. Sure, there have been other Snake action figures, but figma Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid 2 is certainly aiming to be the best...

Good Smile Company is awesome for getting us right up close with their latest display pieces at New York Comic Con! You can practically smell the fresh paint on the figures! This is as close as you can get without being there...

// Tianxiao Ma
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.

Revoltech hasn't held much attention lately. It's kind of saddening, but the line has failed to capture our imaginations with licenses and the actual product like figma and Figuarts have. That's not to say that Kaiyodo is any...

You know what the figure industry is about. Consistently, the message is sent that sex sells. It doesn't surprise anyone. If you've played just about any game in the Metal Gear Solid series, it doesn't come as any shock that ...
