MMPR Legacy White Tigerzord and Saba make for some roaring pre-orders photo
MMPR Legacy White Tigerzord and Saba make for some roaring pre-orders
by Scarecroodle

Bandai of America's Power Rangers Legacy White Tigerzord and Saba are currently available for pre-order. 

The Legacy series has been capitalizing on MMPR nostalgia for a few years now, with such entries as the original Megazord and Dragon Zord. but that enthusiasm is still going strong for many fans with the addition of the White Ranger's (Tommy) zord and talking sword. Both feature die-cast parts although Saba likely features more die-cast, given the higher price-tag. Additionally, the White Tigerzord will apparently combine with previous zord builder items.

Saba can be pre-ordred for US$100 and is slated for a December release while the White Tigerzord will follow it in January for US$80.

Epic new 'Starscream' Optimus Prime is a Hot Toys figure in disguise photo
Epic new 'Starscream' Optimus Prime is a Hot Toys figure in disguise
by Scarecroodle

Hot Toys has just dropped an awesome bomb with the massive reveal of its upcoming Optimus Prime (Starscream version), which features the Autobot leader with Seeker-like wings and a limited edition Starscream head. It's a bizarre combination that I never knew I wanted!

While the 30-cm tall Hot Toys Optimus is non-transforming, it features LED light-up eyes, a removable LED light-up Matrix of Leadership (which can be stored in his chest), and what appear to be fully articulated fingers. In addition, he sports an awesome battle-worn paint job. However, the biggest selling point might be the optional Starscream-deco'd Seeker-like wings AND an exclusive Starscream head [UPDATE: Apparently the Starscream head isn't meant as an alternate head, which reduces much of my interest). The Starscream head is only available in a special edition which is listed as being for Ani-Com pre-orders and selected markets only.

The figure also features a set of wheels that can be mounted onto his back, a ground base/diorama, two Seeker-like Rifles that can be attached to his forearms or shoulders, and a cannon.

Walgreens-exclusive Hand of the King now available

Funko have released a new Legacy Collection figure of Tyrion Lannister dressed as the King's Hand as seen in Game of Thrones. The figure resembles Tyrion in most ways, but then again, you wouldn't really confuse it for anyone...

Penny Dreadful figures will be at SDCC photo
Penny Dreadful figures will be at SDCC
by Vanessa Cubillo

Showtime’s newest hit show, Penny Dreadful, will be getting some exclusive figures thanks to Entertainment Earth. The show is a mix of horror and drama, I’m not entirely sure what it’s about. I do know there’s vampires, werewolves, and literary characters like Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Gray.

People seem to really like it. So Bif Bang Pow! partnered with EMCE Toys will release eight inch action figures from the show. They will have multiple points of articulation, fabric clothing, and have a retro style like the classic Mego action figures.

So far there will be two figures released. The first shown is a figure of Vanessa Ives. There will also be a figure of Ethan Chandler. You can pre-order Vanessa now for US$29.99, but these will first be sold at SDCC. If there are figures still remaining after the convention, then these will be shipped.

If you want to get one of these Penny Dreadful figures, then stop by Entertainment Earth’s SDCC booth #2343.

Funko to sell three exclusive Hikari sofubi at SDCC photo
Funko to sell three exclusive Hikari sofubi at SDCC
by Scarecroodle

Funko is bringing three special edition Hikari sofubi figures to SDCC. "Mean & Green" Raphael (TMNT), "Ice Freeze" Batman, and "Red Rain" Batman will each be sold in a very limited 500 piece run.

"Mean & Green" might be my favorite Raphael deco so far, with a neat color mix and glitter effect (although it's certainly no "Mystic Powers" Skeletor!). "Ice Freeze" Batman is also neat with that blue deco with white eyes, gloves, and boots. Finally there's "Red Rain" Batman, possibly the most colorful use of the Batman mold that we've seen thus far.

As always, fans have to chance to win a copy of the first figure in the run by entering via Funko's Facebook page. It's as good an opportunity as any for those of us not attending SDCC this year. For those who can make it to the show, these will be sold at the Funko booth (#5343).

by Vanessa Cubillo

So we’re getting close to the end of Funko’s SDCC exclusives reveals. I’ve been pretty excited about a few of their figures, especially the Pop! Headless Hershel. Today’s batch of exclusives features a mix of movies, and more Game of Thrones.

It’s a popular show, I know, but so is The Walking Dead and Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Ok, so let’s kick this off with their latest Game of Thrones exclusive. From the Legacy Collection, there will be a Battle Damaged Tyrion Lannister with his weapon and helmet.

Next, there will be a Nightmare Before Christmas ReAction figure of Jack Skellington and his dog, Zero. Keeping with the spooky, there will also be a glow in the dark and blood splattered Billy from Saw. There will also be a Pop! Sloth from The Goonies wearing his Superman shirt. If you wanted this Sloth in another form, there will also be a ReAction figure of this particular Sloth as well.

Starfire, Mera, and more among DCC's July solicits photo
Starfire, Mera, and more among DCC's July solicits
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles has released its monthly solicits. These items are mostly slated to release in either January or February and should be available for pre-order in the coming days (if not already).

Highlights include the DC Cover Girls Starfire, figures based on the Justice League: Throne of Atlantis animated movie (including Mera), as well as a few items seen in DCC's recent big unveil (such as the Bombshells Hawkgirl, some of the Designer Series figures, the new Arrow figures, etc).

While I haven't been a fan of DC Collectibles' decision to do a lower-articulation animated film line, a few of them (like Mera and Aquaman) seem to be turning out pretty well. Still, given the drop in detail and articulation, I would expect the lines' MSRPs would have more than just a meager US$5 difference.

Otherwise I'm just surprised that the Scribblenauts Unmasked line is picking up momentum so quickly. DC Collectibles is just plowing ahead at full steam, having shown six series/waves now (five of which have been made available for pre-order/order with two at retail). Should the line continue to prove a success I would imagine that DCC may try its hand at other blind-boxed series.

Be sure to check out all the images in the gallery.
