ThreeZero's Robocop gets an upgrade to 3.0

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...

Funko's Scifi Mystery Minis are out of this world! photo
Funko's Scifi Mystery Minis are out of this world!
by Scarecroodle

Funko has released images of its long-awaited Science Fiction Mystery Minis series. This blind-boxed series features characters from a multitude of science fiction movies (in much the same way that the Horror Mystery Minis series was a mix of horror film stars) with a handful of special variants.

The character selection consists of an Alien/Xenomorph (two versions), the Predator (three versions), E.T. the Extraterrestrial, two of the guys from Firefly, Robby the Robot (originally from Forbidden Planet, but he appeared in a few Twilight Zone episodes), a Tron character (two versions), Spock, Robocop, the Rocketeer, Judge Dredd, a Martian (Mars Attacks!), and the Metaluna Mutant.

Most of these characters have previously been produced in Funko's other lines (usually the Pop! line), but this is the first time that we're getting them in the Mystery Minis format. The series will apparently be shipped 12-per-case and the rarity chart looks pretty good, offering fans a pretty solid chance at the bigger names (Predator, Robocop, Spock, etc). The only downside that one of my personal faves, the Martian, is a 1/72 which puts him among the rarest figures in the series.

The series is slated for a September release, but pre-orders don't seem to be available at the moment.

NYCC 2013: Square Enix - Comics/Movies
by Brian Szabelski

On the film and comic license side of things, Square Enix brought plenty of Play Arts Kai with them. The Spock and Kirk Star Trek Into Darkness figures were shown off in their painted forms for the first time, and we saw a few old friends like the two Xenomorph Play Arts Kai and RoboCop -

Wait ... hold the phone. There's more than one RoboCop there. In fact, there's three: the original one we saw at SDCC and both the gray/black and all-black versions from the upcoming reboot. I don't know how I feel about these, especially since RoboCop is a film that doesn't need a reboot ever and the trailer made me feel a bit sad.

Beyond that, the DC Variant line had painted versions of Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Superman at the show, along with Cyborg (who wasn't at SDCC), Batman, and the Supergirl prototype. Plus, throw in their previously released Arkham City, Man of Steel and Dark Knight Play Arts Kais, and you have yourself a pretty good summary of all things DC at Square Enix's booth.
