SDCC 2014: Weta

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 Ri...

Will you pray at the Shrine of Azura?

Tomopop Review: Funko's Game of Thrones Mystery Minis Rhaegal

Check out some pirate booby in AM Velvet gallery

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. If that wasn't enough...

Gaming Heads' Shrine of Talos statue guide us

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 Gaming Heads wil...

Alphamax's Sorceress gets a pre huge... errr, preview

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 preview via Akiba H...

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-inch one and pic...
