Revolve to the dark side with Revoltech Darth Vader

We saw quite a few Star Wars Revoltech figures at WonFes. Soon Darth Vader will be at your doorstep as he has gone up for pre-order. There aren't a ton of surprises as far as the retail version goes. You have a segmented cape...

Both Tomopop reader Kirin Lemon and Square-Enix's Hidemi Matsuzuka have tweeted photos showing the front side of Square-Enix's newly unveiled (unpainted) Variant Play Arts Kai Darth Vader (Star Wars) which is on display right now at Tokyo Game Show.

Despite the "Variant" label, Vader doesn't seem like a complete departure from his roots (or, at least, nowhere near as much as the likes of the other VPAKs). The upper torso looks a bit more buff and Vader's control panel is put further up along his chest (presumably to accommodate the somewhat ugly-looking joint). Vader's thighs, by contrast, are a great deal different from the normal design as the character almost seems to be wearing thigh-high boots with additional armoring protecting the inner thighs.

While additional differences may become more apparent when he's painted, it looks like Square-Enix didn't go crazy with this one. It might be a case of Disney/Lucas holding them on a tighter leash. At any rate, it's a pretty decent-looking design although the jointing currently looks a bit off.

Be sure to check out Kirin's and Hidemi's full images in the gallery.

Flock yeah! Hot Topic to carry a flocked Pop! Simba photo
Flock yeah! Hot Topic to carry a flocked Pop! Simba
by Scarecroodle

VinylMation World has posted an image of an upcoming Hot Topic-exclusive flocked Pop! Simba. However, he's not the only upcoming Hot Topic exclusive as the retail chain will also be receiving a (far less exciting) black & white Pop! Loki.

Although I'm not the biggest Simba fan, I'm excited to see flocked Pop!s at normal retailers rather than just being convention or online exclusives (acknowledging that B&N *did* carry some SDCC exclusives but I missed my chance at a reasonably priced flocked Rocket Raccoon because I learned about that information too late). Hopefully this is the start of a trend where we'll see a lot of other Pop!s with flocked variants as well, including The Lion King's Scar, The Jungle Book's Shere Khan, etc.

Over-sized Smaug among Funko's new The Hobbit Pop! announcements
by Scarecroodle

Funko has given MTV News an exclusive first look at some upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies, a selection that includes TWO over-sized Smaugs.

The reveals consist of a 6-inch Smaug, a chase variant of Smaug with yellow eyes (packed 1/12), Tauriel, and Lord Sauron (not shown to scale in header). While the Sauron is cute, both he and Tauriel are completely overshadowed by the "massive" (and massively awesome) Smaug. Both versions of Smaug look great, although I imagine that I might prefer the standard version (as Smaug's actual eyes look a little creepy on that otherwise adorable body). Smaug will be the third over-sized dragon we've seen recently, following the likes of the Magic: The Gathering Pop! Nicol Bolas and World of Warcraft Pop! Deathwing.

These figures are due out in October and, while pre-orders seem to be open for Smaug and Tauriel, I haven't seen any Sauron listings. Tauriel (and presumably Sauron) should run you around US$10 while the over-sized Smaug will be a slightly pricier (but worth it) US$15.

SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.

See many of my favorites after the jump.
