Reimagining Greek mythology
Yamato has long collaborated with fantasy artists and illustrators for their PVC and resin Fantasy Figure Gallery line. Since the last year they've been working on a series of figures inspired by Greek mythology, based on the...
Ready for open-world adventure
Funko has released images of its upcoming Fallout 3 and Skyrim Legacy Collection figures.
The Fallout 3 offerings consist of a generic white male version of the Lone Wanderer and an individual in Power Armor (so either Brothe...
Try to keep them in a vault...
Following hot on the heels of Bethesda's official Fallout 4 announcement were the official images of Funko's upcoming Fallout, Elder Scrolls: Online, and Skyrim Pop!s.
The Fallout figures makes up the bulk of the selecti...
A second game of Mystery Minis
Funko quietly released promotional images and information for its Game of Thrones Mystery Minis series 2 the other week. And, while I still haven't started watching the show, I've seen enough clips to be excited for this line...
Wait, that's Hera? But she looks as beautiful as Aphrodite!
This is the story of a time long, long ago. A time of myth and legend, when the gods were petty and cruel and plagued mankind with suffering. One such goddess was Hercule's "evil" stepmother Hera, the all-powerful queen of th...
Somehow the word, "fantastic", seems fitting
Talk about things flying under the radar: pre-orders have opened for some spectacular dragon and kirin figures.
Produced by Kaiyodo (best known for its Revoltech line), these figures are billed as being part of the "TK Projec...
Less impressive in person?
Chalk this one under "glad I saved my money": Fwoosh recently posted a review which expresses a great deal of disappointment with The Bridge Direct's WB Shop-exclusive Smaug. Sculpted by Gentle Giant, the figure is billed as ...
Where the Khajiits at?
Gaming Heads has continued its line of Elder Scrolls statues with a new 1/6-scale Elder Scrolls Online High Elf . This 15.5-inch tall statue comes in both a standard version for US$310 (limited to 1,000 pieces) and an exclusi...
Will Cersei make it into series 3?
Funko has released some product images for its currently available for pre-order Game of Thrones Legacy series 2. The selection includes some much-wanted selections like the ever-popular Arya Stark, Robb Stark (direwolf head ...
More Pop! dragons? Yes, please!
Funko has given MTV News an exclusive first look at some upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies, a selection that includes TWO over-sized Smaugs.
The reveals consist of a 6-inch Smaug, a chase variant of Smaug with ye...
Now in Low Definition
SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.
See many of my favorites after the jump.
Whenever a dragon moves into your area, the property values go waaaaaaaaaay down
Huge news, everyone! The Bridge Direct will be a making a huge Smaug figure (The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies). The figure, which sports a 22-inch wingspan and is apparently 21-inches tall (although I'm no sure how), won...
Full of busts
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.
Your fantasies made real
If you enjoy figures inspired by fantasy art, Yamato is the place to look. Over the years they've quietly been expanding their Fantasy Figure Gallery lineup. Their presence at SDCC was small, and even then many of the figures...
Smaug, the desolation of
Weta's booth always makes a splash. This year, you could spot it a mile away as it was heralded by a giant, sleepy Smaug head. Obviously there would be a lot of merchandise associated with Tbe Hobbit. There were also some new Lord of the Rings statues displayed.
Oh, and dwarves. So many dwarves. Click on through for the highlights.
The art of sculpting
After being pretty impressed by their work from last year, I dropped by the Shiflett Brothers' booth again this year to see what they were up to. The Shiflett Brothers consist of Brandon and Jarrod, a duo based in Texas who have a serious love for sculpting.
Many of the figures and statues are returning from last year, but their new projects were eye-catching. Click on to see them!
Walgreen's... why'd it have to be Walgreen's?
Tomopop has come across a photo of Funko's upcoming Game of Thrones Legacy Collection Tyrion in his Hand of the King outfit. This version of Tyrion, which has yet to be officially revealed, will be a Walgreen exclusive and is slated to release in August.
The detail and paintwork on the outfit look great. Funko's Legacy Game of Throne figures definitely seem to be getting better and better.
Tomopop editor may regret word choice
Pre-orders will soon open for ThreeZero's 1/6-scale Tyrion Lannister figure. The figure, which sports a reasonable likeness of actor Peter Dinklage, will be available through ThreeZero's website starting May 26.
Very narrow, specific rulership
Some new official photos for Square-Enix's upcoming Variant Play Arts Kai Bahamut have turned up and... he still looks great.
While there had been some fears in regards to the color scheme, the tones work well enough even if ...
Looking pretty divine... or daedric?
Gaming Heads has opened pre-orders for its 1/6-scale Shrine of Azura, another awesome Elder Scrolls collectible that I'll admire but not own. Much like the previous Shrine of Talos, the Shrine of Azura will be available in bo...
It's not about the size of the dragon in the fight...
Game of Thrones has proven to be something of a phenomenon. Starting off as a popular book series that appealed more to a geeky fringe, the franchise found mainstream popularity as a show on HBO... although it hadn't really r...
Is the figure almost too good-looking for the franchise?
Photos and pre-orders have become available for Vertex's delectable Tart from the game Tears to Tiara II (not to be confused with Toddlers & Tiaras), based on the first artwork revealed for the character.
While I'm n...
Presumably took a lot of magic to make a MtG-themed line actually happen
Funko has released some official product images of its upcoming Pop! Magic: The Gathering Planeswalker series, based on the god-like characters of the popular collectible card game franchise. These figures were first announce...
I tossed a pun up in the air...
Pre-orders for Square-Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai Dragoon have literally fallen out of the sky and landed on our heads. Although many of the usual suspects have yet to list Dragoon, the jumpy among us currently have an oppor...
Coming out in April and August
Today, amid all of the Toy Fair fun, Funko announced a new licensing agreement with Wizards of the Coast. The two have joined together so they can release figures from Magic: The Gathering Planeswalker. These figures will be...
Funko enters a game of scaled collectibles
Funko released a press statement a while back that it would be journeying into the realm of 6-inch and 3.75-inch scale action figures, which is something of a brave new world for a company which has largely specialized in sup...
Who said white Dragoons couldn't jump?
Hidemi Matsuzuka has posted two new photos of Square-Enix's upcoming Variant Play Arts Kai Dragoon (previously seen at NYCC 2013).
While I wasn't sure what I thought of the figure when we first saw it unpainted, I've quickly ...
Also on display is pirate booty
Akiba Hobby has released a photo gallery for AlphaMax's recently released Shining Ark Velvet which shows off Velvet's ample treasure chest. Sure, her pirate booty is nice as well but I've been more into pirate boobies.
Oh, to be a squirrel on the cloak!
AmiAmi has posted a preview gallery/review of Megahouse's upcoming Dragon's Crown Elf. The preview highlights some angles in greater detail than previous galleries, in addition to giving us a really nice close-up look at Elf'...
Might fit on a chessboard, allowing you to actually play a Game of Thrones... kinda
Funko continues to churn out really neat series of its blind-boxed Mystery Minis with its most recent set being based on the ever-popular Game of Thrones. The series apparently consists of 24 figures which seems to include gl...
You're tearing me apart, Bluefin!
Bluefin Tamashii Nations has just mega-teased fans with their most recent Facebook post consisting of an image of Smaug (from The Hobbit trilogy) with the caption, "High end articulated and extremely detailed adult collectabl...
Shot an arrow through my heart
Megahouse's 1/7 scale Excellent Model Dragon's Crown Elf is currently available for pre-order.
Elf stands out among many of the Dragon's Crown collectibles seen thus far for doing something cool rather than just exploiting se...
Worthy of worship?
Folks, I think it's no great secret that the Elder Scroll V: Skyrim has been a debilitating addiction for me over the past month or two (and I'm only 245 hours in on my main character). So imagine my delight when I saw that G...
Is this the coming of dragons?
[UPDATE: Photos for the rest of the wave -- Ghost, Joffrey, Tywin, and Tyrion -- have been revealed (and listed as January releases) as well as a Daenerys due out in February]
Funko's Pop! Game of Thrones series 3 is currentl...
Far cuter than Tinker Bell
Vertex has released some photos of its upcoming Tiki (from the hit Playstation 3/Vita beat-em-up Dragon's Crown). Tiki, first mentioned back in July, will be a 1/1 scaled figure.
While I have yet to play Dragon's Crown (and b...
How big is too big? Sorceress's chest may be a good start
While the age old argument of how big is too big may always remain up for debate, few might disagree that Sorceress passed that line by at least a mile. Alphamax's Sorceress's sizable assets (or boobset?) have received a prev...
Was there ever a better use of a MMPR reference?
Pre-orders are now open for Yamato's 1/4 Medusa's Gaze. While the base mold is apparently based on a previous offering, this is no mere re-release as the gorgeous gorgon has gone from being an 11-inch statue to a roughly 19-i...
Would you like to play a game?
NECA's SDCC booth wouldn't be complete without a sizable Heroclix display. In addition the expected stuff like Marvel Heroclix, there was an array of the fantastic, the scientific fantastic, and the filmographic (or, as one might say, fantasy, sci-fi, and movie stuff). Also on display were some other games, such as the Team Fortress 2 chess set.
Hit the jump for all the details.
Elysium, some steampunk accessories, and The Hobbit
Weta had a large display at Comic Con, showing off a lot of replicas and props for movies they've been involved in. The biggest ones are Elysium and The Hobbit. They had some life-sized replicas of a few characters, including...
Find out their sculpting secrets!
The Shiflett Brothers consist of Brandon and Jarrod, a two-man operation who sculpt primarily fantasy figures. We had a chance to check out their work at SDCC. Beyond just taking a few pictures of their booth, we were able to...
