WonderCon 2014: Kotobukiya's Spring Preview panel, Part 1

Apr 21 // Natalie Kipper
Firstly, it should be noted that this panel did not deal with any model kits or toys not destined to reach North American audiences. In other words, the toys shown will see the light of day outside Japan, at least in North America (I am not sure about Europe). The panel started off with talks of the exclusive toys for San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic-Con. SDCC will have two as yet unnamed pieces and NYCC will have one. More news will, of course, be revealed as those events draw closer. In the world of anime, we saw slides of Rage of Bahamut's Dark Angel Olivia and Sword Art Online's Leafa, both of which release next month, along with Fairy Dance Asuna, due out in October of this year. It was also revealed that Kotobukiya is currently working out the details for handling the Attack on Titan license. That news received a large amount of fanfare from the panel's audience. Moving on to the Star Wars universe, we confirmed that Bishoujo Mara Jade will have an interchangeable base, allowing it to bare the insignia of either the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire. The next announcement was the ArtFX+ Sandtrooper Squad Leader two-pack and the ArtFX+ Sandtrooper Squad Sergeant single-pack. Both figure sets were on display at Kotobukiya's booth after the panel. The previously announced ArtFX+ Han Solo and Chewbacca two-pack will be followed by a two-pack of Luke and Leia. The four figures can be posed together. Next up was the realm of gaming, starting with the news that Kotobukiya would now be making figures of characters from the Halo series. Along with that reveal came images of the the first release in the line, ArtFX Master Chief. The figure will have limited posing capability and come packaged with rife and hand grenade accessories (which he will be able to hold). For the Street Fighter series, we saw additional pictures of Bishoujo Cammy (her base will be clear; not black like in the photo), set to release this September. Following her in the Street Fighter Bishoujo line will be Juri, which we saw concept art of. And for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, the next Bishoujo statue for that line will be Nina Williams. That's all for part one of the Kotobukiya Spring Preview 2014 panel. Part two will be coming up shortly. Look forward to it!

SDCC 2013: ThreeA - Valve, Halo and other licenses

Jul 19 // Brian Szabelski
On the Valve side of things, Atlas and P-Body were of course at the SDCC booth, but joining them were two newcomers: the Team Fortress 2: Mann vs. Machine Robot Heavy and debuting Robot Pyro. Both come with their respective weapons of choice (mini-gun and flamethrower) and appear to have as much articulation as you might normally expect to see crammed in a ThreeA figure. Robot Heavy's jaw even hinges open and closed; an unexpected but still cool feature. No release date has been announced as they're still being worked on and refined, but there's no way in heck I don't eventually pick them up. Damn my TF2 fandom ... You can stop e-mailing Ashley Wood, Halo fans: Master Chief is coming to the 1/6-scale line, and he'll be joined by Emile A239 (a.k.a. Noble 4) from Halo: Reach. No accessories were on display with Chief, and Emile was carrying a shotgun in hand at the booth that seem pretty well sculpted. Like the TF2 figures, no release date on these yet, but they should be priced around the same range as Commander Carter was (the US$200 price range). Finally, there's the Lost Planet 2 license to discuss. ThreeA's already revealed the GAH-41BSL Baylid and GTF-11 Drio Vital Suit before, but this is the first time they've been in the U.S. Again, like all the other figures, they're prototype designs pending final approval, but the detailing on these look wonderful. If not for the display cards, you might easily mistake them for something that ThreeA was putting out as an original piece, as they have that raw mechanical look and grimy, worn-down and weathered feel to them.
