ThreeZero's at it again: they've got another 1/6-scale RoboCop on sale next week. This time, it's the black-colored 3.0 version from the recent film. It's essentially a colorway of the RoboCop 1.0 figure, and like the first o...

Hot Toys' Rocket Raccoon and Groot collectible set adds what may be a spoilers-y bonus photo
Hot Toys' Rocket Raccoon and Groot collectible set adds what may be a spoilers-y bonus
by Scarecroodle

I'll be honest: I almost always wait to see Marvel movies until after they leave theaters these days. The whole movie theater experience, with its ever-increasing ticket prices, over-priced snacks, often sticky floors (or worse, sticky seats!), and inability to stop the film while I run out to the bathroom, is something of an expensive inconvenience when compared to the amenities of home.

As such, I haven't seen The Guardians of the Galaxy (despite a few rave reviews from friends... who also thought The Avengers was fantastic) and can't tell you if the newly revealed added bonus item for Hot Toys' Rocket Raccoon and Groot collectible set entails a spoiler. If it does, well, then it won't be the first (or last) time a toy spoiled a major plot element for me.

Possible spoilers after the jump.

Steal a look at Gaming Heads' new Skyrim Nightingale statue photo
Steal a look at Gaming Heads' new Skyrim Nightingale statue
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

I can still easily remember the night of November 10, 2011. Waiting in line for my copy of the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on that frigid night really set the mood for a game set in the snow covered north. That's not to say I wasn't looking forward to getting to my warm home after midnight finally rolled around. And while I haven't touched the game in probably a year (and not out of lack interest) I'm still always very excited to see new things being made for the game. 

In this case it's Gaming Heads' third entry in the Skyrim armor collection after the Breton and the Dragonborn with the Nightingale. The Nightingales are a secret group of elite thieves within the already secretive thieves gild. They wear a unique black armor and wield a custom bow and sword. Their skills are so refined that even fellow thieves don't believe they exist. The quest revolving around them is one of the better story lines of the game I think. 

The figure definitely lives up the shadowy nature of the Nightingales. The armor is pitch black with only a few subtle shade differences. Much of its varied coloring comes from even darker shadows withing the plentiful sculpted details. He's posed holding the Nightingale bow with the Nightingale blade at his hip. The figure stands atop a base made to look like a river bank. There's even a mace just below the water's surface. While it looks great I think I would have rather have had the base be made to look the waterways below Riften instead.

The statue stands at 1/6 scale with a total height of 16 inches. The standard edition runs for US$299.99 and is limited to 1000 pieces. The exclusive edition is US$329.99 and features softly pulsing LED light in the base to make it look like the water is moving. That figure is limited to only 500 pieces and only available a the Gaming Heads store. Pre-orders are open now and the statues will be out in early 2015. 

Now I kinda want to see a Dark Brotherhood statue.

Mooooo-ve aside, cat girls! There's a new (and oddly appropriate) animal-themed outfit in town. AlphaMax's Sena Kashiwazaki Cow Design Swimsuit Ver. may seem an udderly wacky outfit at first glance, but the costume is well-suited to the fetishism of mammary glands.

So how many cow-related puns can I milk out of one review? Find out after the jump!

Hot Toys gets 200k Facebook fans and you get a chance at winning figures
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hot Toys is on fire right now and they can't contain their excitement over hitting 200,000 fans on Facebook! Now they're ready to let it spread by announcing a contest that gives you a chance at some big prizes. Entering is simple: Just grab your first Hot Toys figure and take a picture of it, make a post right here on Facebook with the image and write a short blurb about your feelings on the figure, then sit back and cross your fingers. Be creative because you'll be going up against some stiff competition; even before the contest has been up for a day it has already seen some potential winning entries.

But your hard work could be rewarded with one of these big prizes:

  1. Batman (1989) – 1/6th scale Batmobile Collectible Vehicle
  2. Iron Man 3 – 1/6th scale Tony Stark (The Mechanic) Collectible Figure
  3. Man of Steel – 1/6th scale Superman Collectible Figure

Not bad at all. You don't have a lot of time, just until May 7. After that they'll have a shortlist of favorites picked on May 9, but remember, it's not just the photo, writing counts in this case! Good luck!

While you're at it you can try your luck with Hot Toys' the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Instagram contest which doesn't require you to own any Hot Toys figures to enter. Just take a picture of a local Spider-Man 2 move promotion and upload it to Instagram with the hashtag #SpotSpidey to win one of 10 prize packages. Contest ends May 6 and you can enter as many times as you want so it doesn't hurt to give it a shot.
