Watch(er) out for DST's collectibles in the July issue of Previews
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys is preparing for an action-packed July with a slew of movie, comic, and cartoon-related collectibles to appear in the month's Previews magazine. Highlights include a NEW Femme Fatales Lady Death statue (US$45, not to be confused with the previously reviewed Femme Fatales Lady Death II), a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates Blind Bag Series 1 Asst. (US$6 each), a totally wicked Walking Dead letter opener set (US$90), and more.

Personally I'm most excited about a reissue of DST's Marvel Select Uatu the Watcher. First released in 2005, he's one of those character who you'd never see other companies tackle and, as such, the original figure can be pretty expensive via the secondary market so it's a somewhat overdue second chance.

Be sure to check out the rest of the offerings, many of which are available for pre-order, in the press release or see their photos in the gallery.

Tomopop Review: Square-Enix's Play Arts Kai Helena Harper photo
Tomopop Review: Square-Enix's Play Arts Kai Helena Harper
by Scarecroodle

Resident Evil is one of those franchises you'd assume a horror fan would be into, but it's never quite caught on with me. The zombies and assorted monsters are cool, but I've always been turned off by all the convoluted conspiracies (and, at times, also the gameplay). However, I've enjoyed a few of the games and I like many of the character designs like Resident Evil 6's Helena Harper. As such, I was happy to see Square-Enix give the character the Play Arts Kai treatment.

Full review after the jump.

Collecting is hell. Or, at least, hell disguised as heaven. There's too much stuff coming out at any one moment to really appreciate anything. No sooner are you convinced that the current big announcement is the greatest thing ever and you massively want then another big announcement comes along and you forget all about the previous one.

As your collection grows, it also has an annoying habit of consuming every inch of free space and then some. Join me now as I discuss all this and more after the jump.

Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Jason wants us to know she works out photo
Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Jason wants us to know she works out
by Vanessa Cubillo

Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo horror series has to be the weirdest thing I’ve seen from this company. I had no idea how they would pull off making Freddy and Jason as beautiful women, and after I saw the preview, I had no words. Today, Kotobukiya has given us a full photo preview of Bishoujo Jason, the second release in this series.

So this figure holds both an ax and a bloody machete, and that’s not weird because we know she’s very strong. How do we know she’s strong? Well, just look at those abs!

While she is strong, her homicidal rage has made her a bit too machete happy because all her clothes are tattered and torn. There are even some bloody cuts on her. This figure will measure over eight inches tall, and stands on a small green base. Bishoujo Jason will be available in November.

Bluefin Tamashii Nations USA trying to arrange earlier reveal for S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla 2014

Although we've seen a Godzilla 2014 figure or two revealed, we have yet to see what Bandai will be doing in its S.H. MonsterArts line. That may change, however, if Bluefin Tamashii Nations USA is able to arrange an earlier re...

Tomopop Review: Bandai's S.H. MonsterArts Alien Warrior
by Scarecroodle

The Xenomorph. Nature's perfect predator. Acidic blood. The ability to incubate in almost any living thing and take on the host's characteristics. A sleek black, bony exterior. Truly one of the greatest monster designs out there.

Bandai has sought to capture this perfection in S.H. MonsterArts form, by adapting one of the Alien Warriors (or Xenomorph Warriors) from the Alien vs. Predator films. It's crazy detailed and features some wicked craftsmanship, but is it scary good?

Full review after the jump.
