Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Vertex


hope is...
Jul 25
// Chris Seto
I think Vertex has given us the closest thing to a figure version of the "Sonic Cycle." Their figure announcements are usually interesting and the prototypes always seem to look good but the finished products always seem to f...

Figurex may not be all that well known as a figure maker but they definitely know how to make a splash with one of the most eye catching stalls at wonder festival, no doubt in part to their massive 1/1 scale figures on displa...

There was a time when Takara Tomy didn't seem to really notice Wonder Festival, instead choosing to display at bigger events like the Tokyo Toy Show. But as they continue to focus more and more on the collectors market their ...

With Wonder Festival happening around the same time as SDCC, it should be no surprise that a company with a booth at both events would have a lot of overlap in what they were showing off. Such is the case with Kotobukiya. Tia...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Alter


Platinum Stars!
Jul 24
// Chris Seto
Alter is one of the bigger names when it comes to figures but their output has slowed in recent years. Having said that, I feel that they have upped their game again after a number of rather bland entries... But for this year...

Here Comes a new Daredevil!

The main problem with having SDCC and Wonder Festival on the same week is that, particularly for the more international companies, like GoodSmile Company and Kotobukiya, there are lots of overlaps between the 2 events so a lo...

Hasbro once again came to the SDCC to show off their new wares for the coming year or some and they had quite a bit to offer. Our roving reporter Tian was there to grab all the pictures so that we can bring them here to you. Since Jeremy covered the Transformers already, here is what else Hasbro had to show off.

Without looking you can probably get the gist of what Hot Toys had on display: Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Civil War, and Star Wars. That's not due to a lack of originality on their part; that's simply the zeitgeist of ...

Odin the Destroyer may be the most powerful figure in DST's Marvel Select line

Jun 17 // Scarecroodle
A Diamond Select Toys Release! Prepare to be destroyed! The next 7-inch-scale Marvel Select action figure is the Destroyer, the massive Asgardian automaton that regularly menaces the Mighty Thor! Measuring approximately 9 inches tall with 16 points of articulation, this spiked powerhouse comes with the powerful Odinsword, as well as an interchangeable head, revealing the one-eyed face of the All-Father, Odin, from the times he has worn the armor in battle! Whether you choose to display him as the Destroyer or as Odin, he’s more than a match for your Marvel Select Thor, or Hulk, or even Juggernaut! Packaged in the display-ready Select packaging, with spine artwork for shelf reference. Sculpted by Jean St. Jean!
