Awesome Armarauders Bellerophon custom at NJCC photo
Awesome Armarauders Bellerophon custom at NJCC
by Scarecroodle

While it may take a lot to convince me to cross the border into New Jersey (such as a cousin's wedding), the state certainly isn't without its attractions. Recently this came in the form of the New Jersey Comic Con (NJCC) where Mecha Workshop worked with Encline Designs to produce an incredible Bellerophon custom (and custom pilot!).

ToyArk was on the scene and grabbed some fantastic photos of the amazing collaboration. The color scheme is vaguely reminiscent of Acid Storm (Transformers) between the awesomely obnoxious lime green paint and corroded brown rust marks. If nothing else, this shows the sheer custom potential offered by these figures.

Mecha Workshop's Armarauders Bellerophon (reviewed) can currently be pre-ordered for around ¥28,800 and is slated for an August release. How (or if) you choose to decorate it is up to you.

Get in the game with the NES Gremlins 2 Mohawk photo
Get in the game with the NES Gremlins 2 Mohawk

NECA recently released some official product images for its upcoming Gremlins 2: The New Batch video game Mohawk. The most amusing of this images puts the figure in the game itself.

Fans may recall that the 1990 video game was an okay cash-in on a beloved sequel. Unlike the Gameboy version, the NES game was actually fun. While I'm basically guaranteed to pick this figure up, I still wish that we were getting the Machine Gun Mohawk in his original colors because, as I mentioned in the Toy Fair coverage, this is a repaint of a figure that was never released.

That said, there's a certain amount of nostalgia involved for me with these one as I think I might even still own my original cartridge. It's especially relevant given the game-themed packaging which I imagine I would probably wind up saving.

NECA's Mohawk is slated for a July release and will run you around US$20.

Gigantor added to Funko's Hikari line photo
Gigantor added to Funko's Hikari line
by Scarecroodle

Just when you think Funko has done it all, the company surprises you with a sofubi for Gigantor, a '60s anime character who never enjoyed the enduring legacy of his peers like Speed Racer.

Gigantor (known for his iconic theme music which involves repeating his name again and again and again) was, as his name implies, a gigantic robot. He often saved the day with the help of his human master, a small child. It was a different time.

The Hikari "Original" Gigantor depicts the character in a color scheme I'm not familiar with (then again, I remember the series being in b&w), but it's a neat, campy look. The sculpting is both cute and does a great job in capturing the character's look.

Funko's Hikari Gigantor is slated to release in May for US$60. You can win one by going to Funko's Facebook page. And, if you're a Gigantor fan, Funko also has a Pop! on the way (see gallery). At around US$10, it's a bit more affordable.
