SDCC 2016: Square Enix

You can count on the Play Arts Kai brand to bring some unique (if not overly busy) interpretations of some of your favorite comic book characters. I found a couple such figures at the Square Enix booth at SDCC. They were part of the Play Ar...

SDCC 2016: Gecco

I wasn't expecting to see many Japanese manufacturers at SDCC due to WonFes, but Gecco was able to attend the show. They had flown under my radar until last year when they announced the Venom Snake and Quiet statues for Metal Gear Solid V. ...

NYCC 2014: Good Smile Company

We got the teaser just the other day, now we get to see the whole thing! It's fairly rare for Good Smile Company to tackle properties from the west (though that seems to be changing every event), but with recent efforts to give Teenage Muta...

Hideo Kojima teases Kid Mantis for Play Arts Kai line

Hideo Kojima is back doing what he does best outside of making games: teasing Play Arts Kai figures on Twitter. This time around, it's the mask-wearing child from Metal Gear Solid V better known as Kid Mantis (mostly because his lone a...

Think outside the box in this Nendoroid Solid Snake preview

After lurking in the shadows for a while, Nendoroid Solid Snake has finally emerged into the glaring light of a proper preview by Kahotan, and to say he's looking great would be an understatement. It really looks like Good Smile Company hav...

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 t...

RevolMini rolls on with MGS' Cyborg Ninja

If you were hoping for more Metal Gear Solid figures, then I have good news. If you were hoping they'd be back to normal Revoltechs, well, too bad. It is extremely good news that Cyborg Ninja is getting a release, however it will be in the ...

A better look at Revol Mini Solid Snake and Kinnikuman

This month's scans brought news of the new Revoltech line, Revol Mini. The inaugural figures of the line are none other than Solid Snake and Kinnikuman. It's not the announcement that many were expecting, but nevertheless, here they are fre...

Revoltech goes small with new revolMiNi line

Revoltech hasn't held much attention lately. It's kind of saddening, but the line has failed to capture our imaginations with licenses and the actual product like figma and Figuarts have. That's not to say that Kaiyodo is anywhere close to ...

WonderCon 2014: Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya didn't bring much (if anything) new to WonderCon, which is understandable as it's not a tentpole convention in the US. However our determined editor Natalie covered their booth all the same despite being sick as a dog. Thanks Nat...

Play Arts Kai MGS5 Quiet gets some more exposure

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Nendoroid Solid Snake

MGS 5 Play Arts Kai Quiet sneaks out for a preview

If you remember a couple of months back, Hideo Kojima let us in on some of the details for Quiet, a new character introduced in the latest installment of the franchise. I had my own quips as to his reasoning for the design, and he had some ...

Metal Gear Ray is ready for your plamo pleasure

For those with size and wallet restrictions, Kotobukiya's Metal Gear Rex plamo was a blessing for fans earlier this year. Given the reception to its release, it was only a matter of time before the clamoring for Rex would begin. Sure enough...

Metal Gear Ray leads off this month's hobby scans

At the very end of last year, Kotobukiya released their 1/100 scale model of Metal Gear Rex. That immediately prompted questions of when Metal Gear Ray would be put into production plans. With this month's scans, the year 2014 is when Kotob...

Hideo Kojima says I'll be ashamed for response to Quiet

Last week, Hideo Kojima let the world in on his design process behind the character, Quiet, for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V. I wasn't exactly thrilled with his reasoning behind making the character "more erotic" and Kojima had others sh...

Hideo Kojima opens mouth, tells secret everyone knows

You know what the figure industry is about. Consistently, the message is sent that sex sells. It doesn't surprise anyone. If you've played just about any game in the Metal Gear Solid series, it doesn't come as any shock that characters are ...

Revoltech Raiden sneaks in for pre-orders

Metal Gear Revengence has actually gotten people to like Raiden's design, which is something I didn't think was possible. Kaiyodo has already had their hand in making Revoltech Snake, but now the company will use their talents to make Revol...
