[UPDATE: Pre-orders are now open]
Hot Toys has released photos for its Dynamic Figure Stand, designed to accommodate 1/6 scale figures (such as the Iron Man and Tony Stark seen in the gallery).

DC Collectibles has revealed the subject of its latest batch of teasers: an upcoming New 52 Hawkgirl, who is also currently available for pre-order.
This marks the first time that I've seen the N52 Hawkgirl's design and, well...
Photos of Square-Enix's Play Arts Kai Batman: Arkham Origins Deathstroke and an unpainted Batman have popped up on TAG Hobby.
PAK Deathstroke looks fantastic. While both Mattel and DC Collectibles have taken stabs at the char...
Lady Death. If you don't recognize the name, you may at least recognize the face (and the rest of her).
Despite lacking supporting media, and being held by lesser-known publishers, Lady Death is a surprisingly well-known (or well-recognized) comic book character which probably results from an overly attractive design as well as the copious amount of merchandise she's had over the years. Diamond Select Toys alone has released three different statues of the character (including the "alive" version first available at C2E2, a colorway of the first statue) in its Femme Fatales line.
Diamond Select Toys' Femme Fatales Death II notably departs from the coy, come hither suggestive pose of their first statue by giving the character a more dynamic stance and a burning blue pumpkin. As such, if you picked up the first one you could justify getting this one as well because it has a completely different vibe.
HasbroToyShop.com currently has the Marvel Universe Omega Red (as seen at SDCC!) listed on the website. The only problem? It's out of stock.

Stargirl seems surprisingly at home in the Bombshell line, as evidenced by her Bombshell outfit closely resembling her actual costume. I suppose one could attribute this to Stargirl always having had something of an older sensibility (as her costume almost seems to similar to what you may have seen in either the gold or silver age of comics) despite being a newer character. The two big changes here (compared to the comics/cartoon appearances) are that Stargirl has lost her sleeves and now sports a goofy, old-fashioned pair of goggles instead of her usual mask (well, that and the hair...).
While I can't say that I like the face, Stargirl probably has one of the best poses seen in the line thus far and the body work is absolutely hot spectacular. The color looks great and I'm just absolutely stricken by how natural this adaptation looks (other than the goggles).
DC Collectibles' DC Comics Bombshell Stargirl is slated for a July release. The full image is in the gallery. Stay tuned for pre-orders.
There are many times where I wish I was good at crafting with paper. Sadly, I can hardly fold a paper in half correctly. Yeah, I’m really that bad.

Hello and welcome back to another week of Tomopop LinkUP! It's been pretty crazy this past week, what with everyone trying to extend Black Friday and Cyber Monday into more than just a single day. If you looked around there were some good figure deals to be had, though I can't say I found much of interest at major retailers. Seemed like this year the best deals were online. Or maybe that's the same as every year and I'm just so used to buying stuff online that I don't notice anymore. Well, whatever the case, there were some good stuff out there.
This week on LinkUP we've got an unintentionally large number of Nendoroids to talk about alongside some designer figures, prototypes, bots, another Kickstarter, and some superheroes.
Funko's new DC Comics and Star Wars Wacky Wisecrack bobbleheads are currently available for pre-order.
This latest batch includes a Joker (inscribed with "I'm crazy about you"), Batman ("I'm totally cape-able"), Han Solo ("Ta...
Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United, the most recent animated Marvel flick, is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray. Those who pick up a copy can expect to find a coupon code for some movie-themed Minimates.

figma Spider-Man is coming out later this month, so the figma blog has a preview of what you'll be getting. Generally I like the aesthetics of figmas, but this is not my favorite figure ever. He's too sparkly and that outfit just looks too busy. Superhero costumes have gotten the ultra-textured treatment for the big screen but I'm not a fan of it on this scale.
The figure comes with a few accessories such as a cell phone, backpack, and pieces to simulate him shooting his webs. As you can see from the gallery, he's also a natural candidate for use with the Nendoroid more suction cup stands.
[UPDATE: The set is apparently hitting retail this week. It's unknown whether the BBTS and EE listed their release date wrong or if they're shipping later. The gallery also now features the concept arts for the set.]
