Prepare for Maximum Carnage! Kotobukiya's Fine Art Carnage up for pre-order by Scarecroodle
Following Kotobukiya's recent photo gallery for its 1/6 scale Fine Art Carnage, online retailer(s) have begun to take pre-orders.
Tomopop Readers and True Believers will recall that Koto's Carnage statue was the second coolest Carnage collectible on display at SDCC, although you can't do much better as far as runner-ups are concerned. Besides being a great-looking statue with a dynamic, iconic look, the Fine Arts Carnage offers an alternate blade/axe arm. And apparently he looks great next to a previously released Spidey (see gallery).
Comic readers (and cartoon viewers) will recall that Carnage is the fusion of serial killer Cletus Kasady (who shared a cell near Eddie Brock) and Venom's unnamed symbiote offspring. Initially far more powerful than either Spider-Man or Venom, Carnage forced the sometimes adversaries to team up to fight him and was subsequently defeated (via sonics, one of the two symbiote weaknesses), locked away, then clones his symbiote so he can lead a group of supervillains during the Maximum Carnage storyline. Carnage would go on to die a few times, including one notable instance where the premiering Sentry flew Carnage into outer space and tore him in half.
Kotobukiya's Fine Arts Carnage clocks in at around a US$220 list price (a bit cheaper than the Fine Art Juggernaut) and is slated for a July release. Expect other retailers to open their pre-orders before long.
SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.
MarvelShop.com has listed a Marvel Select Spider-Man vs Electro 2-pack which features both characters in their more classic-looking costumes. The set was showcased in a preview gallery on Marvel.com.
The set, which features what appears to an all-new MS Electro, is a timed exclusive available first through the Marvel Shop (or ShopMarvel) before also appearing in the online Disney Store starting September 8th before hitting retail Disney Stores some time after.
Diamond Select Toys was unable to do a Marvel Select Amazing Spider-Man 2 Electro, which makes this next best thing a somewhat opportune collectible to release right around the time the movie has become available on DVD and Bluray. While it's something of a shame that this pretty solid Electro is 2-packed with a comic Spidey, it helps to drive home the movie connection.
The 2-pack is available right now for US$50. Be sure to check out the gallery for additional images.
,Funko has unveiled its two newest Hikari sofubi figures, a 10-inch Hikari Premium "Blaze" Spider-Man and a normal-sized "Mythos" Skeletor.
"Blaze" Spider-Man, based (loosely?) on the character's appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, represents a double-first: this is the first Spider-Man in the Hikari line and the first time that we've seen one of these over-sized premium versions (unless I misread the details on a previous one). The figure itself has a somewhat standard-looking deco except for the white detailing which looks like it may be translucent (ie, it may just represent an unpainted part). "Blaze" Spider-Man can be pre-ordered for US$80 and is slated for an October release. He's limited to 1,500 pieces.
"Mythos" Skeletor puts everybody's favorite Overlord of Evil in a weird red, gold, and blue deco. It's the first Skeletor deco that I don't like (although it looks like a traditional enough sofubi colorway), something I wasn't sure was possible. If you are a fan, however, you can pre-order him exclusively from Entertainment Earth for US$50. He's limited to 1,000 pieces and slated for a September release.
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 the jump to see my impressions and favorites.
Great news, true believers! Spider-Man 2099, Agent Coulson, Thanos, Hobgoblin, Maria Hill, and more were featured in a batch of press photos sent over by Hasbro.
While we hope to get some of our own photos of a few of these (some of whom were added to the booth after our visit), these should help to tide you over until then. First, and most importantly (to me, anyway), is the announcement that Spider-Man 2099 will be among the first wave of the 2015 Spider-Man Legends figures.
