Kotobukiya Kylo Ren photo
He stabbed first
Kotobukiya announced a new Kylo Ren figure at Friday's Star Wars collectibles panel, and shortly after it appeared in their booth. Although Koto has taken on Kylo Ren in the past, this one's the most dynamic yet. The figure i...

Joes, Ponies, and lots of Star Wars.
Jul 23
// Soul Tsukino
Hasbro once again came to the SDCC to show off their new wares for the coming year or some and they had quite a bit to offer. Our roving reporter Tian was there to grab all the pictures so that we can bring them here to you. Since Jeremy covered the Transformers already, here is what else Hasbro had to show off.

Our friends over at Mattel always try to do big at these conventions and this time around is no different. They had a lot to show off at SDCC, and our own tian was there to get all the picture. So let's dive right in.

SDCC 2016: Quantum Mechanix


Bringing in all of the cuties
Jul 22
// Kristina Pino
I generally think of prop replicas and Firefly/Serenity when Quantum Mechanix comes up, but their SDCC showing was almost anything but. They've got loads of cool Marvel and DC Comics figures, like this flippin' precious Adam ...

SDCC 2016: Hot Toys


Shocker: lots of Star Wars
Jul 22
// Tianxiao Ma
Without looking you can probably get the gist of what Hot Toys had on display: Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Civil War, and Star Wars. That's not due to a lack of originality on their part; that's simply the zeitgeist of ...

Another grand spectacle
Jul 22
// Tianxiao Ma
To give you an idea of the expanse of Sideshow's exhibit, I spent about an hour rushing through the photo coverage and still only managed to get half of it. The other half was dedicated to Hot Toys, which we'll cover in a sep...

With movie and TV universes to build, it's no surprise that DC featured Suicide Squad and their TV shows heavily in their merchandising. They'll be adding to their selection of articulated figures with characters from Arrow, ...

Looking forward to New York Comic Con...
When you have to display at multiple toy shows a year it's hard to keep things fresh and exciting. Hasbro did a pretty good job last year between Toy Fair, BotCon, San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con, and in 2016 they ...

SDCC 2016: Good Smile Company


Nice figures tucked into a tiny booth
Jul 21
// Tianxiao Ma
Good Smile Company doesn't usually do Comic Con as WonFes is usually the same weekend. However it seems like they're starting to stake out some territory at SDCC. Their booth was pretty small and tucked away - not what you'd ...

The first Naruto merch from GSC!
Naruto is, like, one of the most popular things ever. Strangely enough this is, to my knowledge, the first time Good Smile Company has produced merchandise of it. Mamitan tweeted out from Anime Expo this momentous (?) announc...

Finally, more Decepticons
Takara Tomy isn't slowing down anytime soon when it comes to announcing new Masterpiece figures. In the past month they've added four more MPs to the line to join Beast Wars Optimus Primal later this year with our best looks ...

Pretty freaking metal

Some toys were meant to be made of metal: Iron Man, Transformers, toy cars, etc. And then you have madmen like the folks at Metalsouls, who just make everything out of metal. Despite largely working with recycled scrap metal,...

It felt like there was a lot less plush at this year's C2E2 than in previous years. The most notable booth I found was Beefy & Co. with a colorful display of somewhat sleepy looking plush animals. Two plushies were new fo...

Legends everywhere
Mar 19

Enterbay is known for their realistic 1/6-scale figures, often featuring movie and sports stars. Their booth at C2E2 was mostly NBA-oriented this year. The presentation, I felt, was really cool and well-executed. If you're no...
