Convention Exclusive announces variants of Supernatural Pop! figures photo
Convention Exclusive announces variants of Supernatural Pop! figures
by Vanessa Cubillo

It still amazes me that after being on TV for 10 years, Supernatural doesn’t have more toys. They certainly have a huge fan base! That’s why when Funko finally announced that they were making Pop! figures from the show, fans were very responsive.

So now thanks to Convention Exclusive, there will be variant Supernatural figures of Sam and Dean. Released as sets, there will be two variant versions; Blood Splatter and Metallic Blood Splatter. Convention Exclusive will debut their Supernatural figures at Chicago’s C2E2, but they will also be available on their website.

Starting on April 14, you can pre-order these Pop! figures for US$19.99 for the Blood Splatter version and US$34.95 for the Metallic Blood Splatter version. The Metallic Blood Splatter version will be limited to 500 pieces.

Biggish gallery appears for FuRyu's biggish Colossal Titan

At 21-cm tall, FuRyu's Colossal Titan is big enough to tower over your Attack on Titan figma... even if he doesn't exactly scale well. The recently released soft vinyl figure has received a decent-sized photo gallery that sho...

Funko introduces their new DIY Pop! figures photo
Funko introduces their new DIY Pop! figures
by Vanessa Cubillo

Funko has a pretty simple formula for making their Pop! figures. They are able to take dozens of characters based on movie, TV, and video game characters, apply it to their formulaic toy design, and come out with cute figures. Alright, sometimes they don’t work out, but for the most part they do.

So now they’re taking their standard design and giving it to the fans. Funko will be releasing Do-it-yourself Pop! figures so you can make every character you’ve been wishing for. Finally I can have a Sailor Moon Pop!

These will be available in a male or female body type, and your first chance to get them will be at Emerald City Comicon. Also at their booth will be exclusive Emerald Green versions of these DIY figures. They will be limited to 300, and only 100 will be available each day.

So if you’ll be at Emerald City Comicon this weekend you can be the first one to get one of these at Funko’s booth #117. For the rest of us, we’ll have to wait until these DIY Pop! figures come out in May.

The future is ponies with WeLoveFine's Future Twilight photo
The future is ponies with WeLoveFine's Future Twilight
by Natalie Kipper

Yesterday, to the delight of pony collectors across the interwebs, WeLoveFine revealed Future Twilight, their latest My Little Pony vinyl figure. Unlike the company's previous releases, with each character having multiple colorways, Future Twilight will not have variant releases. She also appears to be more stylized than DJ Pon-3 and Derpy Hooves (err, I mean "Bubble Muffin"), with her battle-worn jumpsuit and the base's spiraled energy effects. The torn Equestrian flag is a cool touch as well.

Future Twilight is limited to 2400 pieces in the first edition (there will be a second edition, as well). The first print is expected to ship late June 2014, with the second following it in late October 2014. She is available to pre-order now for US$25.

Empty's sofubi Colossal Titan manages to be large and small at the same time photo
Empty's sofubi Colossal Titan manages to be large and small at the same time
by Tianxiao Ma

Few things are funnier to me than seeing horrific villains doing casual things. That's why I got a kick out of Akiba Hobby's preview gallery for Empty's Colossal Titan. He's not menacing humanity, breaking down walls, or inconveniently appearing at the ends of inspirational monologues. He's just kind of chilling with another Colossal Titan buddy.

Empty's soft vinyl figure, while having Nendoroid-ish proportions, is actually pretty big. He stands about 20cm tall, which is just under 8" (or if you prefer, two billion angstroms). He also has a little bit of articulation, being able to rotate his arms and turn his head. Look forward to an April release for ¥4,800.
