Let the video games begin: NECA brought a plethora of video game-released collectibles to Toy Fair, in addition to its usual assortment. This included NES decos for some of its previously released figures.

Highlights included an awesome NES Godzilla, Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm characters, LBP Sackboys, and so much more.

See some of my personal favorites after the jump.

DCC may be upping its action figure game with new Icons line photo
DCC may be upping its action figure game with new Icons line
by Scarecroodle

Its no secret that DC Collectibles has greatly improved the "action" in its action figures within the past few years, going from relatively basic articulation to some incredible options. Now DC Collectibles may be making another jump with its recently unveiled DC Comics Icons line.

The early reveals all look great. The added torso jointing is very reminiscent of DCC's efforts in the 3.75-inch scale except it looks better with the larger size. The sculpting and paint are equally impressive. This may be the coolest Batman figure I've seen so far (although there are certainly a few other top contenders). The Green Lantern is also eye-catching with his snap-on energy construct armor; it's a very cool accessory set and a little surprising if it will retail for the same price as the others.

The other reveals include Flash (who comes with the Cosmic Treadmill, just in case you want to go back in time and shatter reality), a Superman (with robot), a good-looking Deadman, and an Atom set (which includes Crime Syndicate member Atomica, a mid-size Ryan Choy Atom, and a tiny Ray Palmer Atom).

Three waves have been scheduled so far (starting around November/December) which will include a "classic" Harley Quinn, Aquaman, Lex Luthor, the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle, Mister Miracle, and Black Adam in addition to the figures seen here.

The line will apparently be priced at the usual US$25 MSRP which might make them a better value than some of the other lines at the same price point. Be sure to check out all of the images in the gallery.

Nostalgic for '80s collecting goodness? Rise of the Beasts can help photo
Nostalgic for '80s collecting goodness? Rise of the Beasts can help
by Scarecroodle

The 1980s and early 1990s were a pretty cool time for miniatures, whether it was Battle Beasts, M.U.S.C.L.E.s, Monster in My Pocket, and so on. Sure, some might say it was a simpler time, but it was a pretty cool time as well. A time for which many collectors feel a little bit nostalgic.

Plastic !magination has expertly channeled that nostalgia with its Rise of the Beasts line, which may very likely fill your craving for classic lines like Battle Beasts.

NECA Batman Returns Penguin up for pre-order

The Penguin is pretty gross, ya'll. He's slightly more appealing in 1/4 scale, but NECA has put enough detail into the 15" figure to make me keep my distance. In the likeness of Danny DeVito's 1992 Batman Returns performance,...
