SDCC 2014: Bluefin - miscellaneous figures

Bluefin's presence at SDCC is spread across two booths, one with the Tamashii Nations items and one more dedicated to sales. The sales booth did have some prototypes of upcoming figures, including the titan in the header. The...

SDCC 2014: Pop Culture Shock

If you like large, well-painted figures, Pop Culture Shock may have what you need. If they don't have what you need, give them a year and see what random licenses they pick up. This year they carved out their own piece of the floor at SDCC, and marked it with some Akuma busts and a big red demon.

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - Hot Toys

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.

So we've gone through and covered Sailor Moon, Tamashii Buddies and Dragon Ball Z ... that can't be all of Tamashii Nations' SDCC offerings, can it? Not in the least, as many of their other licenses got a chance to shine in their booth, too. Whether you're a fan of fighting superheroes, fighting ninjas, video game icons, or ... fighting superheroes, there's something for you from this year's Tamashii Nations showing.

Hit the jump for some of the best of the rest, and be sure to check out the gallery for more!

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: ThreeZero's Atlas from Titanfall photo
Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: ThreeZero's Atlas from Titanfall
by Brian Szabelski

ThreeZero showed up at Wonder Festival 2014 Summer with their big, bad Atlas from Titanfall. The Atlas stands a full 20 inches tall, comes with a pilot figure that has it own accessories, has LED illumination on the top of the machine and inside the cockpit ... and oh yeah, has a cockpit that opens up. Pretty standard fare for a ThreeZero release, though.

If you've got US$430 hanging around, you can still pre-order Atlas on ThreeZero's shop.

NECA's SDCC booth featured a mix of Aliens merch (including a new Ripley!), more Yu-Gi-Oh! items, Godzilla figures (both new and retro), Gremlins Mogwai series 5 (!!!), Robocop vs. Terminator items, zombie Galactus, and so much more. Between killer robots, giant monsters, aliens, and the rest, if NECA's offerings have an overarching theme it's that the future will not be good for humanity.

Highlights after the jump.

SDCC 2014: Union Creative

I didn't expect to see a ton of Japanese figure makers at SDCC, but I'm glad Union Creative showed up. They had a small display next to AAA Anime's booth, but it had some figures worth seeing. There wasn't much in terms of new figures, but getting a chance to see some finished products in person was pretty reassuring to me.

SDCC 2014: Square Enix - Final Fantasy/Kingdom Hearts

What kind of Play Arts Kai display would it be without some Final Fantasy/Kingdom Hearts news to share? Apparently, Square Enix feels it wouldn't be much of one, since they've brought along several new prototypes for San...

SDCC 2014: Mattel's Minecraft mini-figures

If you have a slightly uncontrollable love of Minecraft, as I sometimes think I do, then it was perhaps interesting to see a little Minecraft section at Mattel's SDCC booth. Inside that section was a little "chest" you c...

SDCC 2014: Hasbro - Star Wars
by Scarecroodle

Hasbro's Star Wars booth featured new Star Wars: Rebels collectibles including figures for the female Mandalorian weapons expert Sabine Wren and the Twi'lek pilot Hera Syndulla (albeit both are for the relatively basic 3.75-inch Mission Series line).

The 6-inch Black Series items were (as of Thursday) all previously revealed items, including Jabba and the Imperial Scout with Speeder Bike pack (both due out in September; both feature a US$40 MSRP). The Walgreens-exclusive white (prototype) Boba Fett was on display in package.

The panel (which happened after we got the booth shots) apparently included the first images of some of the 6-inch Star Wars Black Series figures that were leaked a while ago via a retailer listing including Bossk, a Luke & Wampa set, and Han Solo in his Storm Trooper disguise. No word yet as to whether those figures also made it to the booth, but we have the press images in the gallery. Hopefully we'll see more bounty hunters as the line continues.

The booth featured a lot of the Star Wars Command items, a good deal of Saga Legends and Mission Series figures, as well as some 3.75-inch Star Wars Black Series figures (3.75-inch SW Black replaced Legacy as the high-end 3.75-inch offering) including a Darth Malgus who I can't recall seeing before. Some retailers will apparently be carrying special offerings, such as Toys "R" Us picking up a Endor Battle pack featuring a AT-ST and five Saga Legends figures.

Check out all the images in the gallery.
