SDCC 2014: QMx

If you're a sci-fi fan, you should really know about QMx (Quantum Mechanix). Their entire existence is like a love letter to all of my favorite sci-fi TV franchises. At SDCC this year, the marquee features were two large scal...

Watch(er) out for DST's collectibles in the July issue of Previews
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys is preparing for an action-packed July with a slew of movie, comic, and cartoon-related collectibles to appear in the month's Previews magazine. Highlights include a NEW Femme Fatales Lady Death statue (US$45, not to be confused with the previously reviewed Femme Fatales Lady Death II), a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates Blind Bag Series 1 Asst. (US$6 each), a totally wicked Walking Dead letter opener set (US$90), and more.

Personally I'm most excited about a reissue of DST's Marvel Select Uatu the Watcher. First released in 2005, he's one of those character who you'd never see other companies tackle and, as such, the original figure can be pretty expensive via the secondary market so it's a somewhat overdue second chance.

Be sure to check out the rest of the offerings, many of which are available for pre-order, in the press release or see their photos in the gallery.

by Scarecroodle

Space: the final frontier to be filled up on your shelves. These are the voyages of the website Tomopop. Its ongoing mission: to explore strange new toy lines, to seek out new collectibles and new companies, to boldly let you know about really cool stuff.

One such cool line is Diamond Select Toys' Star Trek Minimates series, which recreates the characters and vehicles of the iconic Star Trek TV series in Minimate form. DST has released a few different USS Enterprise sets so far and the one we'll be looking at today is specifically based on the episode, "The Trouble with Tribbles," which introduced the concept of a tribble to both Star Trek and pop culture at large.

Full review after the jump.

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.
