Kidrobot's new Art Giant is the Monster Munny

Kidrobot has another Art Giants piece to roll out, and con-goers will recognize this one. Those giant 4-foot-tall Monster Munnys in Kidrobot's booths — the ones you can doodle on in chalk — are actually being made...

This life-size Darth Vader will have you believing in the force

Space is at a premium in my collection. If a figure is too large, chances are I can't own it. That said, I would make room for a life-size Darth Vader. Clocking in at nearly seven feet, Gentle Giant Ltd. digitally scanned the...

Pre-orders for Pop Culture Shock's Baraka open April 21

Pop Culture Shock's newest 1/4-scale Mortal Kombat 9 figure is the razor-toothed (and razor-armed) Baraka, and boy, does he look awesome. I'm not a big Baraka fan at all but the sculpt, especially that sinister toothy grin, l...

Senran Kagura Niitengos part of 3DS pre-order bundle

I've never really liked figures getting bundled in with deluxe versions of games, but it looks like they're pretty much here to stay, especially in Japan. I say that because yet another game — Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crim...

Gaming Heads debuts a new Doom diorama photo
Gaming Heads debuts a new Doom diorama
by Brian Szabelski

Sure, Gaming Heads put their Doom license to use with some cuddly plushes ... but if that's not your thing, then you might love the new Knee Deep in the Dead diorama. Based on the original game's box cover art, the diorama featured a lone space marine blasting away at the minions of hell. It's cast in polystone (so it won't be cheap) and stands 12.5 inches tall by 17 inches wide. The bullet effects are also removable, should you not want your demons being ripped apart by gunfire.

Like Gaming Heads' other works, there's two versions of this diorama available: a regular, US$374.99 version (750 piece run), and the exclusive, US$399.99 version that comes with a LED-illuminated base (350 piece run). Both versions are planned for a third quarter 2014 release.

Avengers figma Thor arrives for previews and pre-orders

They've been teased for some time already, but it looks like we are finally getting those figma Avengers figures. The first Avenger won't be Cap, but rather the demi-deity from Asgard, Thor. Full previews are now out as well ...

Huck Gee's Skullhead added to Kidrobot's Art Giants

Are you a Huck Gee fan with US$5,000 sitting around collecting dust? Well, then congrats: you can afford Kidrobot's newest Art Giants piece, a 4-foot-tall fiberglass version of Huck's Skullhead. Truthfully, I don't imagine it...

Titanfall Collector's Edition comes with Titan statue photo
Titanfall Collector's Edition comes with Titan statue
by Brian Szabelski

Our crazy cousins over at Destructoid have posted about the new Titanfall Collector's Edition bundle, and surprise, there's a statue included in the mix. The bundle — which releases on March 11, 2014 — comes with an 18-inch Atlas Titan statue, along with a bunch of other stuff like a poster and the actual game for PC/Playstation 4/Xbox One.

As for the statue, it has LED illumination (battery-powered) and is made up of "over 300 individual parts." I didn't realize the number of parts a figure has was a selling point and the more, the better (pro tip: it's not). There's no info on who produced this (start guessing in the comments) or what the material it's composed of (I would guess polystone resin), but hopefully we can find that info out soon. 

In any case, if you want the Titanfall Collector's Edition with the 18-inch statue, you'll have to pony up an expensive US$249.99 for it. It's almost like you're buying the statue and getting the game for free.

Gentle Giant shows off their September solicits

Gentle Giant doesn't have as many new pre-orders lined up for September, but they definitely have one big one. We mean that literally: the life-size Kenner Stormtrooper figure/statue (or their term, monument) is one of the tw...

Pop Culture Shock shows off their Skeletor bust photo
Pop Culture Shock shows off their Skeletor bust
by Brian Szabelski

Pop Culture Shock picked up the Masters of the Universe license last year, and I don't think anyone's going to complain about their latest product for that line. It's a life-sized Skeletor bust, a full 29 inches of polyresin evil with a real fabric hood. There's also an exclusive version that adds in LED eye illumination, just to make Skeletor look that much more sinister. As if the sculpt alone didn't ...

Both versions of the bust go on sale for US$675 on Monday, Aug. 26, at Pop Culture Shock's website. The regular bust is limited to 300 pieces, while the variant exclusive with the glowing eyes is a smaller run of 125 pieces.

Amakuni's Dark General summoned for pre-order

Popping up in Hobby Japan's shop today is Amakuni's Dark General. Based on the character from Shingeki no Bahamut, the November release packs one heck of a hefty sword, a lot of detail, and not a lot of armor. I guess when yo...

Head under the sea with Shinkai Shoujo Miku orders

Miku's no stranger to having her videos turned into figures, and Good Smile's set to bring us the latest from Shinkai Shoujo (recently previewed by Mikatan). While the bubbly, fairly upbeat song may be a bit at odds with Miku...
