Pre-orders open already on Transformers 4 home release bundles

Is there such a thing as being too early to start taking pre-orders for a movie release? It always seemed like there used to be a cool down period between leaving theaters and when these things got announced. I guess in our e...

Who needs a sports car when you can have a US$30,000 Optimus Prime statue?

And here I thought it was ridiculous when Prime 1 Studio was asking some US$2,300 for a three-foot tall movie Optimus Prime statue. If I only knew.  Takara Tomy has revealed this enormous statue of Optimus Prime that can...

This Edo Tensei Itachi Uchiha statue is no genjutsu

Itachi is a character that knows how to play with your emotions. You spend such a large chunk of the Naruto story line loathing the guy, then you feel sympathetic towards him when he dies because of all the terrible things he...

Viz joins in on the SDCC 2014 figure exclusive fun with this 1/6 Naruto statue photo
Viz joins in on the SDCC 2014 figure exclusive fun with this 1/6 Naruto statue
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

It's that time of year again! San Diego Comic Con 2014 is right around the corner so that means time to start showing off exclusives. This year we've got Viz Media, best known for their anime and manga distribution, trying their hand at SDCC exclusive collectibles with their Naruto Shippuden 1/6 scale Naruto Uzumaki statue. 

The statue, produced by fairly new Japanese company Gecco, will measure in at 27 cm (10.6 inches) tall and shows him wearing his father's, the Fourth Hokage's, jacket. The sculpting really is top notch with lots of textures and they did a perfect job of capturing the young ninja's face. It's a statue worthy of being an SDCC exclusive, but that kind of quality comes at a price. He'll be sold at the the Viz booth with Gecco present for US$150. It's a lot of money, but this is one of the better Naruto statues out there and it's designed to stand out on a shelf. You can get yours when the conventions opens from July 23 to 27.

Darkseid throws down against Superman in latest DCC solicits

DC Collecibles' latest batch of solicits (pre-orders open) features a slew of heavy hitters, although none heavier than an incredible statue of Darkseid fighting Superman over a fire pit (presumably on Darkseid's homeworld of Apokolips). Other selections include that new Harley Quinn bust, sketches of new Scribblenauts Unmasked figurines, and the new L'il Gotham figures. Details after the jump.
