SDCC 2014: Bluefin - miscellaneous figures

Bluefin's presence at SDCC is spread across two booths, one with the Tamashii Nations items and one more dedicated to sales. The sales booth did have some prototypes of upcoming figures, including the titan in the header. The...   more

SDCC 2014: Pop Culture Shock

If you like large, well-painted figures, Pop Culture Shock may have what you need. If they don't have what you need, give them a year and see what random licenses they pick up. This year they carved out their own piece of the floor at SDCC, and marked it with some Akuma busts and a big red demon.   more

SDCC 2014: Tokidoki

Tokidoki drew a pretty large crowd at SDCC. People were just eating up their shirts, bags, and small figures. Fortunately I was able to get into their booth to take a look at what they were selling. The aesthetic is very cute, and they have a wide variety of merchandise. Check out the pictures after the jump!   more

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - Court of the Dead

Sideshow's Court of the Dead line is a series of original figure designs with a horror theme. The Queen of the Dead figure had its own display at SDCC last year, but this year there was an entire extra tent dedicated to this ...   more

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - Hot Toys

Hot Toys' 1/6-scale figures were featured at Sideshow's booth as usual. This year they had a couple of vehicles, some figures from The Dark Knight and Avengers, and lots of Iron Men. So many Iron Men. You should know the drill by now: hit the jump to see my impressions and favorites.   more

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - statues and maquettes part 2

Continuing with Sideshow coverage, here's the rest of their licensed statues and maquettes. Star Wars characters featured heavily, as did Marvel. The booth also had a smattering of horror and other movie characters. Most of the experience is about simply gaping in awe at the larger scale figures (especially the legendary scale ones).

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - statues and maquettes part 1

If I could own an entire booth at this year's Comic Con, I think Sideshow's would be it. Their stuff appeals to the sci-fi, movie, and sexy women fan in my. Sorry anime fan Tian, you're not getting catered to here. "Vast" wou...   more

SDCC 2014: CS Moore Studio

CS Moore Studio and I share a common interest: well-endowed ladies. They had a sizable presence at SDCC, and were kind enough to show me around their booth (special thanks to the folks who held up the black backdrop while I was shooting). The number of statues and figures was truly dazzling, and that's before we even get to the giant Fathom statue up front. Hit the jump to see what their wares.   more

SDCC 2014: Yamato

If you enjoy figures inspired by fantasy art, Yamato is the place to look. Over the years they've quietly been expanding their Fantasy Figure Gallery lineup. Their presence at SDCC was small, and even then many of the figures...   more

SDCC 2014: Weta

Weta's booth always makes a splash. This year, you could spot it a mile away as it was heralded by a giant, sleepy Smaug head. Obviously there would be a lot of merchandise associated with Tbe Hobbit. There were also some new Lord of the Rings statues displayed. Oh, and dwarves. So many dwarves. Click on through for the highlights.   more

SDCC 2014: Union Creative

I didn't expect to see a ton of Japanese figure makers at SDCC, but I'm glad Union Creative showed up. They had a small display next to AAA Anime's booth, but it had some figures worth seeing. There wasn't much in terms of new figures, but getting a chance to see some finished products in person was pretty reassuring to me.   more

SDCC 2014: Shiflett Bros.

After being pretty impressed by their work from last year, I dropped by the Shiflett Brothers' booth again this year to see what they were up to. The Shiflett Brothers consist of Brandon and Jarrod, a duo based in Texas who have a serious love for sculpting. Many of the figures and statues are returning from last year, but their new projects were eye-catching. Click on to see them!   more
