Funko's Wacky Wobblers line just got a little crazier with the addition of Deadpool and Harley Quinn.

The Joker's sidekick/love interest is depicted with her trusty, trademark mallet (accept no baseball bat substitutes) and looks fairly neat in bobblehead form. Deadpool, on the other hand, stands with his sword at the ready in one hand while the other is in a thumbs up position. It's great for knowing that whatever you're doing at the moment, Deadpool approves. How can you go wrong with that kind of encouragement?

Funko's Wacky Wobbler Deadpool is slated for a November release while Harley Quinn is set to follow in January. Get ready to go nuts.

DC Comics joins Funko's Mystery Minis line photo
DC Comics joins Funko's Mystery Minis line
by Scarecroodle

Funko has officially unveiled its DC Comics Super Heroes Mystery Minis line which includes heavy-hitting heroes like Powergirl, Superman, and Batman, along with popular villains like Harley Quinn, Deathstroke, Lex Luthor, and Black Manta. Plus the sculpting is pretty cool in most cases.

Although the set includes many of the expected characters -- Batman, Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, etc -- I was pleasantly surprised to see the series include a few lesser-used characters like Powergirl, Martian Manhunter, and Professor Zoom (albeit Zoom is a pretty easy redeco).

The full line-up consists of Superman, Black Manta, Batman (black & gray), Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Wonder Woman, Powergirl, a super rare White Lantern Batman, Harley Quinn, Professor Zoom, Aquaman, "television series" Batman (classic blue & gray), powersuit Lex Luthor, metallic Harley Quinn, Flash, Deathstroke, Martian Manhunter, Professor Zoom, and a super rare White Lantern Hal Jordan. The rarity for most of these is a basic 1/12 but Black Manta, Martian Manhunter, Lex Luthor, and "television series" Batman are a higher 1/24 while a few others are 1/36 or 1/72.

Although I know that the style of the Mystery Minis line doesn't appeal to all fans, but I'm personally looking forward to these. Expect to see the series hit shelves in January.

Good Smile Company's Eren Yeager is still a ways away, but Akiba Hobby has posted a large gallery of a pre-production sample. As expected of a GSC figure, the sculpt and paint job are looking great so far.

I really like these dynamic, aerial poses for their Attack on Titan figures. But more than that, I like the unintentional humor of looking at them off-angle and realizing they look like drunk people staggering around. Seriously, check out the gallery and tell me what you think.

Kahotan previews the Eva Racing Nendoroid Asuka photo
Kahotan previews the Eva Racing Nendoroid Asuka
by Tianxiao Ma

Since we saw Nendoroid Rei, the natural progression would be to see Nendoroid Asuka because they are the only two characters in the whole of Evangelion. It's still strange to me that the first Nendoroid Eva pilots we get are the Eva Racing designs, but something is better than nothing.

Actually this Asuka is way better than nothing. Whereas Rei is mostly unexpressive, Nendoroid Asuka has a cheerful smile and an angry face. I also like her selection of arms and legs better (but let's be real, I'm buying both). Kahotan says they'll both be up for pre-order in a couple of days, but make sure you take a look at her preview in the meantime!

Bandai reveals S.H. Figuarts Cardcaptor Sakura, goes head-to-head with Max Factory photo
Bandai reveals S.H. Figuarts Cardcaptor Sakura, goes head-to-head with Max Factory
by Martin Siggers

It seems like only yesterday I was complaining about how there were no Cardcaptor Sakura figures, but now we're practically drowning in them, as Bandai have announced they'll be producing an S.H. Figuarts version of Sakura Kinomoto. What's more, we've already got fully coloured, production ready pictures!

Interestingly, this comes only a few days after Max Factory revealed their own poseable Sakura as part of the figma range. The two figures are uncannily similar, even down to the choice of outfit. Speaking of that, I know this is one of the famous ones, but could we please get a little more variety? Just sayin'. Regardless, it's a clear case of throwing down the gauntlet to a rival company, and it'll be interesting to see which way collectors decide to go. It seems like Bandai have the jump here though, as Sakura is already pencilled in for a March 2015 release. More news as we get it.
