SDCC 2014: Pop Culture Shock

If you like large, well-painted figures, Pop Culture Shock may have what you need. If they don't have what you need, give them a year and see what random licenses they pick up. This year they carved out their own piece of the floor at SDCC, and marked it with some Akuma busts and a big red demon.

Pop Culture Shock's polystone Ryu is coming next year in not one, but three different versions. All three are planned for the first quarter of 2015, are 1/4-scale to fit with their other Street Fighter figures, are up for pre-order on May 19 starting at 3 p.m. Pacific (6 p.m. Eastern, 10 p.m. GMT), and generally make me interested in buying a statue of my least favorite World Warrior.

For a quick breakdown on the three variants:

  • The regular edition is a run of a to-be-determined size at a price of US$325
  • The Ansatuken edition includes two alternate heads: one is the gritting teeth head you see in the gallery, and the other is a surprise, it seems. 
  • The battle-damaged Tatakai Kouka edition is a similar sculpt but with a worn and weathered look. It's probably my favorite look of the three, coming with an alternate head. A total of 250 are being made at US$350 a piece.

Any one of these catching your eye?

Pre-orders for Pop Culture Shock's Baraka open April 21

Pop Culture Shock's newest 1/4-scale Mortal Kombat 9 figure is the razor-toothed (and razor-armed) Baraka, and boy, does he look awesome. I'm not a big Baraka fan at all but the sculpt, especially that sinister toothy grin, l...

Tomopop LinkUP: The Girls und Painter edition
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to another round of Tomopop LinkUP! December 12 is observed as 'National Ding-A-Ling Day', a day set aside to watch out for crazy people. I couldn't say why, but doesn't that also mean it's a good day to act crazy? I don't see why not! After all there's a very fine line between genius and insanity and it probably takes a good amount of both to make it in the figure world. 

This week we're looking at some brilliantly warped works from a number of designers and customizers as well as a number of great looking ladies along with a few other things.

Pop Culture Shock shows off their Skeletor bust
by Brian Szabelski

Pop Culture Shock picked up the Masters of the Universe license last year, and I don't think anyone's going to complain about their latest product for that line. It's a life-sized Skeletor bust, a full 29 inches of polyresin evil with a real fabric hood. There's also an exclusive version that adds in LED eye illumination, just to make Skeletor look that much more sinister. As if the sculpt alone didn't ...

Both versions of the bust go on sale for US$675 on Monday, Aug. 26, at Pop Culture Shock's website. The regular bust is limited to 300 pieces, while the variant exclusive with the glowing eyes is a smaller run of 125 pieces.
