figma Captain America and Ninja Slayer share a preview

A preview gallery has appeared for both (as in one gallery for two unrelated characters) Max Factory's upcoming figma Captain America and Ninja Slayer. Pre-orders are expected to open tonight/tomorrow. Unfortunately the photos themselves are dark and blurry, but we should see better images of both figures when pre-orders open shortly.

For a toy collector, if you only attended one panel at last weekend's WonderCon, it was Kotobukiya's Spring Preview. They had licensing announcements. They had prototypes. They had concept art a plenty. Heck, they even had a very generous raffle! So much awesomeness is impossible to contain within a mere one post and thus this panel's summary has been split into two posts. The anime, Star Wars, and gaming news can be found here and the rest will be in part two. For now, don't worry so much about that. Just read on and take in the excitement.

Need more incentive to buy DST's 24-in Stay Puft MM? How about the chance to win prizes? photo
Need more incentive to buy DST's 24-in Stay Puft MM? How about the chance to win prizes?
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys' 24-inch tall Stay Puft Marshmallow Man vinyl bank recently started to ship and, to celebrate, DST will be hosting a series of monthly contests where all fans need to do to win is take a photo of their 24-inch Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (either the good or evil version) somewhere outside and then email that photo to collectdst@gmail.com. Easy, right?

Winners will score prize packages which consist of $100 worth of toys and collectibles from DST. Considering that Stay Puft himself retails for US$125, the figure could almost pay for itself.

The rules are stated as follows: "Photos must be at least 600 x 800 pixels. One entry per person per monthly cycle. Duplicate entries will not be included in the drawing. If you do not win, a new photo can be submitted after the start of the new month. A previously submitted picture cannot be submitted again. All entries become the property of Diamond Select Toys, and can be used on various Websites and social media sites. Prize package value is based on suggested retail price of all items combined. Winners are prohibited from entering any DST contest again for one year."

There's currently no word as to when this contest will end. It's certainly one way to promote a very cool, very high-ticket collectible.
