Off the shelf and into your pocket: Funko's Pocket Pop! keychains

Apparently recognized the impracticality of taking Pop! figures with you, Funko has decided to release a line of Pocket Pop! keychains. You know, it's like the old saying goes: "Go tiny or stay at home." The first offerings i...

Matty Collector's post-SDCC sale starts on 8/4
by Scarecroodle

Matty Collector's post-SDCC sale starts at noon EST on August 4th and includes, but is not limited to, the DCU containment suit Doomsday.

Other non-DCU containment suit Doomsday SDCC items up for sale include the Monster High Manny Taur and Iris Clops 2-pack, the MotUC Hordak with Imp (but not the Imp as a treasure chest, which was SDCC-only), the Total Heroes Cyborg, the Arkham Knight Batmobile, and "Turbo Charged" Max Steel.

As such, this is a great opportunity to pick up a containment suit Doomsday if you weren't able to make it to SDCC along with, well, some other stuff like that neat-looking Manny Taur.

[ Order at Matty Collector ]

SDCC 2014: Diamond Select Toys 'The Best of All Worlds' Panel photo
SDCC 2014: Diamond Select Toys 'The Best of All Worlds' Panel
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys' action-packed SDCC included its "Best of All Worlds" Panel, which featured a look at DST's non-Minimates offerings. Some of the slides covered items revealed at the show like the Marvel Select Carnage (booth photos in gallery), MS Cable, and MLP:FIM Rarity vinyl bank as well as upcoming items like the 1966 Batman tv series unmasked Catwoman and Penguin vinyl bank busts.

Information from the panel apparently includes the news that Toys "R" Us will be carrying an exclusive color edition of 6-inch Select Sin City figures (see gallery) and that Alien-licensed bank busts will released this Fall along with an Alien Pulse Rifle bottle opener. Additionally, the B-9 Robot will apparently be getting his own bottle opener (albeit it's nowhere near as cool as the Mecha Godzilla bottle opener).

While I'm happy that DST is continuing its Batman tv series vinyl bank bust series, I somehow keep missing announcements. For instance, I was surprised to see a photo of a masked Catwoman bank bust from the booth appear on other websites; in fact, every time I blink I imagine that DST may use the opportunity to sneak a new one by me. That aside, it's great to see that a Burgess Meredith Penguin bank bust is on the way.

Otherwise, the Marvel Select Carnage has allegedly been mentioned as including as many alternate parts as the acclaimed MS Venom, although those parts have yet to be revealed.

Be sure to check out the gallery for a few highlights and a look at the MS Carnage (along with Cable) at the booth.

SDCC 2014: Mezco photo
SDCC 2014: Mezco
by Scarecroodle

Mezco's booth once again featured a good deal of Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad collectibles, including a Gus Fring figure and a spoiler-y Gus Fring figure (so avoid the rest of that photo if you're planning on watching the show) as well as a Saul Goodman bobblehead (better call your favorite retailers!). Among the other items on display was the new Frank Miller-inspired Dark Knight Batman line, some new Living Dead Dolls, and so on.

I remain impressed by the Gillman and Headless Horseman Living Dead Dolls; however, I'm a little confused since the Headless Horseman is currently available for pre-order but there's nothing about his horse. A few of the additions look neat as well.

Be sure to check out the gallery, especially since I can't ID any of the Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad characters. You know, if nothing else, Mezco's booth is a reminder that I really need to watch those shows already...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kaiyodo's Mega Sofubi Advance

Did I just completely miss this whole arm of Kaiyodo's corpus? I'm always awed and amazed (sometimes not in the best way) by super-huge toys. In this case, I definitely got a good impression, though. As I turned the corner, I...

SDCC 2014: Kuso Vinyl

Kuso Vinyl brought an army of Minicels and Kusopons with them to SDCC. Three different event-exclusive Minicels (one of which was a Catchaman colorway that was only available on preview night) and three event-exclusive Luckit...

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - Hot Toys

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.

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - statues and maquettes part 2

Continuing with Sideshow coverage, here's the rest of their licensed statues and maquettes. Star Wars characters featured heavily, as did Marvel. The booth also had a smattering of horror and other movie characters. Most of the experience is about simply gaping in awe at the larger scale figures (especially the legendary scale ones). Click through for the gallery!

Kotobukiya didn't have much in the way of Marvel Bishoujos on display at WonFes, but at least we had an even closer look at Marvel Bishoujo Jubilee... and her oddly pink cheeks and copious pink eyeliner.

While there's a lot to like about Bishoujo Jubilee, I just wish that Kotobukiya hadn't gone so overboard on the accents. Sadly, the alternate shades weren't on display but an image was on the placard next to Jubilee. In non-Jubilee news, both colorways of the new Psylocke were also on display.

Check out the gallery for additional images.

ArtFX+ Deadpool slices and dices, even minces, his way into a preview gallery photo
ArtFX+ Deadpool slices and dices, even minces, his way into a preview gallery
by Scarecroodle

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls of all ages, you checked out the teaser, you saw him in our SDCC coverage, here's the man (or figure) of the hour: ArtFX+ Deadpool! Kotobukiya has released a preview gallery for everybody's favorite Merc with a Mouth. Will the world ever be the same again?

ArtFX+ Deadpool (which will come in two flavors, strawberry and lemon (and also two colors, red and black (and also two colorways, standard and X-Force gray&black))) features an interchangeable component in his left hand which gives you the choice of a cool gesture, having him hold a second sword, or having him hold a picket sign. I can imagine you'd have a lot of fun with the picket sign. Some fans already have.

Although not depicted, I'm wondering if the spare sword can be stored in the sheath on Deadpool's back when not in use. The thing seems to have a space carved into it, after all. Otherwise, the sculpting, pose, and paint on this one are all pretty neat. As such, it should appease the legions of Deadpool fans even if it might not be the greatest fit for the ArtFX+ line-up given that pose.

Be sure to check the gallery.

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - statues and maquettes part 1

If I could own an entire booth at this year's Comic Con, I think Sideshow's would be it. Their stuff appeals to the sci-fi, movie, and sexy women fan in my. Sorry anime fan Tian, you're not getting catered to here. "Vast" wou...

SDCC 2014: CS Moore Studio

CS Moore Studio and I share a common interest: well-endowed ladies. They had a sizable presence at SDCC, and were kind enough to show me around their booth (special thanks to the folks who held up the black backdrop while I was shooting). The number of statues and figures was truly dazzling, and that's before we even get to the giant Fathom statue up front. Hit the jump to see what their wares.
