July 7th will see the fuzzy debut of Lilo & Stitch-themed Tsums featuring: Stitch, Angel, Lilo, Scrump, Dr Jumba, and the Ugly Duckling. The duckling is an odd choice, but all of them look pretty dang cute nonetheless. I'll probably be picking up a Scrump one, myself.

Toy Fair 2015: Diamond Select Toys brings the best display ever

Feb 21 // Scarecroodle
The biggest news might be the 6-inch scale Ghostbusters figures which look a LOT better than the ones Mattel gave us a few years ago. Besides the superior sculpting, paint, and likenesses (although Ray's forehead still looks a little large, even compared to Dan Aykroyd's massive noggin), the figures will also include better accessories: each one seems to come with a proton stream and at least one of them includes the ecto-goggles & a full ghost trap. Now I wish I had waited 4 or 5 years instead of picking up Mattel's versions... DST also had a pretty full display for Tim Burton's holiday classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. The selection apparently included articulate figures (possibly for the Select line?), oversized dolls, and a healthy amount of Minimates. Given the film's large cast, there's certainly a lot of room for these lines to grow. Personally, I need that Oogie ASAP. I was also excited to see a Marvel Select Doctor Strange. Yes, most companies with the Marvel license have done at least one good Doctor Strange (Toy Biz with its ML version, Hasbro with MU), but it's still really awesome to see a new one especially since the MS version will likely have alternate hands and some neat accessories. He stood alongside the recently announced MS Ant-Man and zombie Sabretooth, as well as the previously shown (and currently available?) Cable and Carnage. All of that was really exciting, but then I saw all of the Batman: The Animated Series stuff and... like... whoa. There were a lot of busts on display including Batman (one suspiciously looks like a Dark Knight Returns version?), Catwoman, Poison Ivy (who looks great), and the Phantasm. For those who enjoy more affordable busts, Joker and Harley Quinn each had a vinyl bank bust on a lower shelf. Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Ivy, and Batgirl will apparently also be getting full statues. I'm excited to see what else DST may do with the license. If that wasn't exciting enough, DST will also be producing Justice League Unlimited collectibles. This apparently includes a great-looking Supergirl and Wonder Woman. The selection also includes what look like lunchboxes as well as bottle openers. DST has apparently also expanded its My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic line of vinyl banks. I had somewhat lost track of these offerings but, as always, the poses look cute and they have neat stands. Hopefully the faces will be a bit nicer on the new ones. Oh, plus there were some Spongebob Squarepants Minimates on display. I can't remember if we'd seen all of these before. Finally, I just learned that the Cthulhu vinyl bank will be coming in an additional color (ie, more to buy). Plus there's some female character next to them that I don't recognize, although the design looks neat. Other items on display (and in the photo gallery) included: Black & white 6-inch Select Clerks figures (including Randall and Dante!) Some new TMNT stuff, including a neat Shredder buff and some vintage comic-style Turtles Minimates More Tarentino Minimates, including Beatrix in her coffin from Kill Bill vol. 2 Star Trek collectibles, including some items for Worf Godzilla collectibles, including a figure for Rodan A Predator bust of some sort Dragon Age Minimates Be sure to check out everything in the gallery. (In other news, I think I spent too much time putting this together.)

Tomopop Review: ThreeZero's Tyrion Lannister

Jan 27 // Kristina Pino
Figure Name: Game of Thrones: Tyrion LannisterFigure Maker: ThreeZero MSRP: ¥13,000Retail: HobbyLink Japan | BBTS | Entertainment Earth Tyrion is great, straight out of the box. All I did here was stand him up and put a goblet in his hand, because... well, he kind of demands it. He takes a little more effort to get standing on an uneven surface, like the gravel I photographed him on here, but it's do-able. The figure itself is hefty, super articulated, and easy to pose. He stands well on his own, and once you've got his feet planted it's easy enough to pop accessories into his hands for photos. Tyrion comes with three extra hands (the odd one is posed to grip his blade, which comes with a belt and sheath), the goblet, and a copy of An History Or The Great Sieges of Westeros by Archmaester Ch'vyalthan. The book itself is pretty heavy as well, and I should stress now, very delicate! I don't mean that it'll fall apart, more like the paint will scratch off or chip easily if you aren't careful, so please handle with care. Tyrion's clothing is made from actual cloth, which is pretty great. It really brings it all together, in terms of keeping things realistic. The vest is, of course, decorated with his Hand's badge and some clasps holding it together. And there's the belt (lower image) that comes around the figure straight out of the box, which is different from the one with his sheath and blade. I decided to pose his hand hooked there for most of this review. As I mentioned earlier, he's got some heft to him, and though he's got many points of articulation and a great range of motion, once you pose him a certain way, he doesn't budge easily. That makes it quite a simple affair to pose him with heavy objects such as this book, which you can, of course, pose under his arm or in other ways than this precarious situation I've got going on. I went ahead and piled on that second belt on with his blade at his hip. At this point, you can keep his goblet-grabbin' hand on to look like he's making for his blade, or you can unsheathe the blade and have it actually in his grip (below). Clearly, my belt-tying skills are no match for a chamber maid's or page boy's, but you get the idea. With a little wiggling, you can get the pommel and grip into Tyrion's hand, and then he's in business. His calm, yet furrowed expression is perfect for just about any pose you can think of. Speaking of his expression, the last bit of detail I'll talk about in this review is his head. Just look at that - with a little PhotoShop wizardry, one can no doubt make this look just like the real thing. This is lovely work, really well done, and I like the paint job on the hair as well. Of course, it's one thing to look at these details in a photograph, and it's another to look at the figure on your shelf. The colors work rather well together to enhance the look of the curls, and in low light you can't even notice there are different paint colors at all. But look at the subtle sculpt and paintwork on his face - the shading for shaved areas of the face, the lips, and the rest. Just lovely. As you can surely tell by now, this figure comes highly recommended by me. If you're a fan of Game of Thrones, especially of Tyrion Lannister, and you wanted one, centerpiece-worthy, high quality product to display, this is a good candidate. One of the biggest strengths of a figure like this is he doesn't require a stand or any props to lean on, so there's nothing to take away from his presence on a shelf or table. Add his sturdy build and poseability, and the possibilities are endless. Check out the gallery below for more images that didn't make it into the body of this review, and have a look at Good Smile Company's retail listing of the figure for even more shots, exploring more poses as well as a different lighting situation (my images were taken outdoors). I hope you've found this review helpful. Feel free to leave any questions or feedback in the comments section below, and share images of your own if you happen to have adopted your very own imp. [A big thanks goes to ThreeZero for providing Tomopop with this review sample.]
