Take tea with these Nendoroid Hiei preorders

The unstoppable  Kantai Collection merchandising juggernaut rolls onwards, and though I've long since given up attempting to identify the individual characters, I know a cute Nendoroid when I see one. That's exactly...

The Sega fan in me is loving these new images of Mega Drive Megatron photo
The Sega fan in me is loving these new images of Mega Drive Megatron
by Natalie Kipper

With the new images from Takara Tomy's site, we get another chance to "ooh" and "aah" over Sentinel's Mega Drive Megatron. Andres posted the pre-order information last May and I totally share in his excitement. As previously mentioned, the transforming blast-from-the-console-past will cost ¥10,000 and ship this September. But thanks to the site's update, we now have even more information! The Mega Drive Megatron will have a removable miniature cartridge of Sonic the Hedgehog in its slot. How is that for a big dose of nostalgia? The cartridge's label looks absolutely perfect, too. In fact, the whole darn robot looks magnificent.

Share in our excitement with these new photos in the gallery!

Fat Chocobo plush waddles into pre-orders

Here there be an Elder Dragon: Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 available for pre-order
by Scarecroodle

Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 is now available for pre-order. The selection includes the absolute must-own over-sized (6-inch) Elder Dragon Nicol Bolas, Elspeth Tirel, Kiora Atua, Sarkhan Vol, Gideon Jura, and the freakish-looking Tezzeret.

Other than Nicol Bolas, one of the famed Elder Dragons (who premiered back in the Legends expansion in 1994 and has apparently since become a Planeswalker), I can't say that I recognize any of the characters which is unsurprising considering I haven't followed the franchise that closely since the creature-exclusive Le-Gi-Ons! expansion (although I played in a local Planar Chaos release sealed-draft tourney where I top 8'd in my first and only tourney outing). However, even if you're as unfamiliar with these guys as I am, some of the figures like Elspeth and Kiora. More importantly, you have that over-sized Nicol Bolas which you know you want.

Funko's Pop! Magic: The Gathering Series 2 is slated for an October release. The standard figures have a US$10 MSRP while the larger Nicol Bolas will run you US$15.

Hot Toys shows off Arkham City Batman photo

Hot Toys has sent over images and details for its upcoming Batman: Arkham City Batman. The figure apparently includes two interchangeable lower face pieces, alternate hands, a Batarang, Batclaw with hook, and more.

The Hot Toys Arkham City Batman looks incredible although I wonder how well the jointing will work under that body suit. Regardless, it seems like a great display piece and I hope to see additional Arkham-series Hot Toys figures.

DCC releases Scribblenauts Unmasked checklist photo
DCC releases Scribblenauts Unmasked checklist
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles has unveiled a checklist for its Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure blind-boxed line which includes some of the secret characters. The graphic seems to include the selection from the first four series, although Series 3's and 4's hidden characters may be absent.

More interesting is that the figures appear to be to scale, showing off the height difference between characters like Bane and power suit Lex Luthor compared to the rest (or the fact that Beast Boy is tiny). DC Collectibles lists Series 3 as being at retail right now (albeit NOT in my area...) and that Series 4 is slated to hit next month.

Be sure to check out the full image in the gallery.

The lovely Mikuzukin figure from Max Factory is up for pre-orders, merrily skipping along with a wolf on her head. I have a feeling this Miku design will be pretty popular. If you haven't already, you can check out the previe...

Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Street Fighter Bishoujo Cammy photo
Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Street Fighter Bishoujo Cammy
by Tianxiao Ma

Kotobukiya's Bishoujo lineup seems to be growing by the day. The latest Street Fighter gal to hit the, uh, streets is Cammy. Although she isn't out in the US, she is currently available to import from Japanese retailers.

When a 2D design gets translated to 3D, you'd expect some slight differences. With Cammy, I think there has been a significant shift in style thanks to the sculpt. Whether that's good or bad depends on your tastes, but read on to see what I'm talking about.

Last spotted at WonFes, Max Factory's Mikuzukin figure now has two proper previews. You can see some promo shots of her on the figma blog, and another gallery at Kahotan's Blog. I've been looking forward to this figure even before it got a paint job, and I'm not disappointed at all.

Mikuzukin (a portmanteau of Miku and Akazukin, the Japanese name for Red Riding Hood) is a design featured in Project Diva 2nd. It's a wonderful reinterpretation of Miku, putting her in an extremely cute outfit - and the skirt's just short enough to show the all-important zettai ryouiki. Jump on over to Kahotan's Blog or the official Max Factory preview to see all the little details. She'll be up for pre-order soon, and yeah... I'm getting in on that for sure!
