Get over your mommy issues with Clayz's Rei Ayanami

No you haven't fallen into a time warp, this is an Evangelion 2.0 figure in 2014. Like, a thousand years after the film's release. Why this Ayanami? And why now? I don't know, but I welcome it. The subject admittedly isn't the most creative...


[NSFW] Aizu Project's Gisen Yagyu goes up for pre-order

It's been a while since I last saw a big, cold cast figure, but here's one: Aizu Project's 1/6-scale Gisen Yagyu from Hyakka Ryouran. "Cold cast" refers to the materials used in the manufacturing process of this figure. There are some advan...


Pop Culture Shock sends Shao Khan to rule your collection

If you remember back to our last post about Pop Culture Shock, you might remember we mentioned an upcoming Shao Khan 1/4-scale figure. Well, here he is, and I am very, very impressed. The latest in their Mortal Kombat polystone line, Shao K...


Aizu Project's Nadia returns

Aizu Project's Nadia is back, with a re-release coming in April. The 1/7-scale figure is the third different Nadia I've seen in the past few months, and she's the biggest of the three, posed in her trademark outfit and looking to be sculpte...


Tomopop Review: New Captain America Fine Art Statue

Of all the items I received for this month's giveaway, I was most excited for this particular review, though at the same time I was kind of dreading it the most. The dread comes from imposing size of the box Cappy here comes in, but everyth...


Sogeking kicks off Plex's Real Mask Project

Plex are launching a new line of collectibles, the Real Mask Project line, and the first addition to the line is One Piece's Sogeking. The coldcast mask is 35 by 46 by 18 cm, which is quite a large size, and comes on a plaque that can be mo...


Gaming Heads' 1/6 Medic ready for pre-order, Oktoberfest

Brian gave the heads up that Gaming Heads was preparing their assortment of Medics to see the pre-order stage. As it has now become the magic hour of 8 a.m. PST, the Medic is fully revealed and available to order. Fans of Team Fortress 2 wi...


Gaming Heads calls for Team Fortress 2's Medic

Well, well: Gaming Heads has been quiet lately, but just recently, they posted a teaser showing off their next Team Fortress 2 statue, the Medic. The image in the gallery is the only info we have, but considering the history of the line (al...


[NSFW] Kurushima's Mie is way, way too relaxed

2012 has gotten off to a pretty good start, but you know what we're missing? If you said "ridiculous NSFW figures," then you're right and you're also cheating, so shame on you. But yes, from Kurushima Seisakusho, we have the Privaye Beach 3...


Aizu Project's Evangelion cold-casts back in stock

Aizu Project's 1/6 Asuka and Mari figures are back in stock for those of you who missed out on the initial release. While Asuka looks rather pretty, I don't think they got Mari quite right. Still, how many figures of Mari in her school unif...


Syco Industries shows off some new gaming statues

The crew at Syco Collectibles have assembled a trio of gaming icons for their newest statue pre-orders.Two of them are 10" statues from the Mortal Kombat franchise: Raiden, limited to only 500 pieces, and Kitana, who is indeed sporting her ...


DC's newest Batman: Black and White figure is MAD-dening

Sometimes, yes, DC Direct does some stupid things. But there's one thing they definitely have yet to do wrong, and that's their Batman: Black and White line, featuring the many different looks of Batman, all beautifully crafted. And their n...


A gallery of AlphaMax's Kusanagi Motoko figure? Yes, please

Sure, last month, we got a gallery full of Kaitendoh's brand-new Kusanagi Motoko figure, but they aren't the only ones on the block with a new figure of her. AlphaMax has got one as well, featuring Motoko in her outfit from 2nd GiG, and it ...


Alphamax's Kusanagi Motoko is mega hot

Seriously, we have posted some figures of Ghost in the Shell's Motoko before, but holy hell ... this is easily my favorite in some time. I'm not usually crazy about stuff by Alphamax, but this one earns a wow from me. This coldcast figure i...


Black Angel from Clayz is stunning

Wow. Did you know about Clayz Original Black Angel? I sure didn't, but now I am totally in love with this figure. The body and pose would be beautiful on their own, but the wings and hair make this figure a real work of art. She's a little ...


DC Universe Online cold cast figures look fantastic

Okay, so I'm still not very sold on the new DC Direct Ame-Comi figures. But here's two I'm much more likely to look at buying: Zatanna and Solomon Grundy, also from DC Direct, based on their designs in the upcoming DC Universe Online (relea...


Why look, it's another Ryomo fig-YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWN

Man, going into the future is going to be a sad affair. With all the trash we generate, we'll have landfills covered in paper cups, plastic bottles and Ikkitousen figures. The bloody things come out faster than a high school kid on his firs...


Alphamax's Mina Tepes figure is actually pretty hot

I just posted Kotobukiya's version of Dance in the Vampire Bund's Mina Tepes a few days ago, and since I haven't seen the show, I didn't think much of it. If you had told me that I'd ignore a Kotobukiya figure but notice an Alpham...


The DC Solicits are up, that means half-jackets and statues!

This is going to be the first time I ever post a full solicit text in the body of a post but honestly it's so insipid that it must be read. I'm sorry but it's quite possibly the most idiotic thing I've ever read and someone got paid to writ...


Check out some more pics of my Valentine, Nazume Mikuru!

Take a look at the gallery and enjoy some more pictures of the lovely Mikuru by AlphaMax! She's looking more and more like a "DO WANT" the more I see of her ... (lots MORE)!Anywho, for those of you who are having second thoughts, ...


New goodness from Bowen Designs

One thing you should know, I will take ANY, and I mean ANY excuse to use that Hercules image in a header. And the fact that I can use it in a situation that it actually fits? Well that's just a bonus. What am I looking forward to in this se...


Zeroin's Nazume Mikuru can be my Valentine...

She's cute, she's got a gun, AND she'll never kill you (no, really - her rule). Mikuru is looking spiffy (yay, pantsu!) and she's got her good boots on for you to order her today. I said she can be my Valentine because she's due out in Febr...


Covergirls of the DC Universe gets armored with Wonder Woman

If there is one thing I love more than almost anything else, it's Wonder Woman. I think we've pretty much established this by now, I'm totally gay for Wonder Woman. You know what else I love though? Adam Hughes drawing Wonder Woman. The sta...


Griffon offer mouthwatering new Death Note resin statues

I don't want to sound like a snob, but I don't pay attention to anything Death Note collectible related anymore. Like, ever. I think it's because the anime reached such heights of popularity that the collectibles scene was just drenched wit...


Coming next from Bowen Designs

Great googly that's a lot of statues and busts coming up to order from Bowen Designs! I am a big proponent of checking out the next things coming and this time around it's a whopping 7 new statues and busts coming up for order. The new orde...


A Collector's Take: The Cost of Collecting

Welcome one and all to my final edition of A Collector's Take. Thus far, I've brought up a lot of the important issues surrounding statue collection, including delays, sculptors, quality control, and storage. Before I get into this one, ...


DC Direct allows you to preorder some busty goodness

DC Direct has been a target of my ire before when it comes to quality control, but I really do like the sculpts they put out. Especially when they find the right designers to do it. If I can buy a bust designed by Amanda Conner, you bet I w...


A Collector's Take: The Burden of Space

Welcome Tomopeeps, to my second to last edition of A Collector's Take, talking you through the many things you should always know when it comes to statue collecting. Up to this point I've introduced you to some of the amazing sculptors, tal...


Show & Tell: Bowen Designs Planet Hulk

What's that? Me doing something on another comic book statue? Please, pretend to be shocked. This time around I'm going to take it a little differently from the last time I did this, though. Last time, I gave you the entire history of one o...
