Sideshow features the brutish Igor in their video showcase

Iron Man 3 had a veritable smorgasbord of armors, which of course means plenty of fodder for Hot Toys' 1/6-scale line of Iron Man figures. Sideshow has recently uploaded a video of the Mark XXXVIII (38 to you non-Romans) arm...

Tomopop Review: ThreeZero's Tyrion Lannister
by Kristina Pino

This month saw the release of ThreeZero's Tyrion Lannister, which is based on the image of Peter Dinklage in the HBO series Game of Thrones. When it comes to figures based on real people, it's usually a hit-or-miss deal. The sculpting doesn't always quite nail the person's face, depending on which company, or sculptor, is working on the project. With ThreeZero though, you've got a high quality product that is sure to please any Tyrion fan.

Hide your titans, RAH Hange Zoe is on the loose!

As dark as Attack on Titan can be at times, it does have its fair share of zany moments. Some of my favorite ones come from Hange Zoe, the overzealous Titan enthusiast. She's one of the few characters who don't fear Titans - ...

Luke Skywalker is next for S.H. Figuarts  photo
Luke Skywalker is next for S.H. Figuarts
by Oansun

Well, were you on the fence about collecting S.H. Figuarts Star Wars representations? That decision just got a lot easier, as Luke Skywalker has entered the fray. I was one of those people crying out for six inch Star Wars figures for years "I'll buy them all," I said. Little did I know there would be two lines of them.

This Luke's face sculpt looks pretty great. It's funny, I think the wind-blown-hair head looks like Hamill in Episode IV. Judging from the comparison with his long-separated father, the scaling issues may still apply however. But that's why we have the Black Series, right? 

From what I gather via Google Translate (my Japanese reading comprehensive is fair, but I wanted to be more than sure) it seems they are touting the digital coloring technique used on the Michael Jackson Figuarts (which, make more of those please). Darth Vader is coming soon, and if you get the first release version you'll receive a figure stand to recreate their duel at the end of Return of the Jedi (a wonderfully filmed scene). It's almost like they...thought ahead.

No price announced yet, but I would speculate around the price of the Stormtrooper...this license can't be cheap. And since it's Figuarts, you'll get the treasure trove of alternate heads and hands. Those haven't been announced or shown fully, but more as we get it. Included in the gallery is the diorama that comes with Vader.

Hot Toys Boba Fett is more than you bargained for

I think just about everyone knew that Hot Toys was going to release Boba Fett sooner or later. Given the character's popularity, it was inevitable. What people did not see coming though was that the release of Boba Fett was g...

ThreeZero's Robocop gets an upgrade to 3.0

ThreeZero's at it again: they've got another 1/6-scale RoboCop on sale next week. This time, it's the black-colored 3.0 version from the recent film. It's essentially a colorway of the RoboCop 1.0 figure, and like the first o...

Max Factory strikes back with painted figma Cardcaptor Sakura photo
Max Factory strikes back with painted figma Cardcaptor Sakura
by Martin Siggers

Surprise! In what almost seems like an intentional piece of counter-programming, the figma blog decided today was the day to release the first fully painted shot of the upcoming figma Sakura Kinomot. Though we've seen her in grey plastic before, this is the first time we've seen the iconic pink and white in place.

Naturally, she's looking pretty ace. It may be the lighting, but it seems as if Max Factory have gone for a slightly softer, paler palette than the very bold S.H. Figuarts version and the level of detail is as outstanding as always. In past coverage most of you guys have voiced a strong preference to stand by Max Factory and resist the temptation of the SHF version, and based on this I doubt those people are going to be disappointed

S.H. Figuarts Cardcaptor Sakura flies to pre-orders

Fate's Rin Tohsaka gets an RAH figure

I'm not the biggest fan of the Fate franchise, but Rin has a nice enough design where I've generally liked the figures that get made of her. Medicom Toy is jumping on that bandwagon with this RAH version, which should be a tr...

Bandai reveals S.H. Figuarts Cardcaptor Sakura, goes head-to-head with Max Factory
by Martin Siggers

It seems like only yesterday I was complaining about how there were no Cardcaptor Sakura figures, but now we're practically drowning in them, as Bandai have announced they'll be producing an S.H. Figuarts version of Sakura Kinomoto. What's more, we've already got fully coloured, production ready pictures!

Interestingly, this comes only a few days after Max Factory revealed their own poseable Sakura as part of the figma range. The two figures are uncannily similar, even down to the choice of outfit. Speaking of that, I know this is one of the famous ones, but could we please get a little more variety? Just sayin'. Regardless, it's a clear case of throwing down the gauntlet to a rival company, and it'll be interesting to see which way collectors decide to go. It seems like Bandai have the jump here though, as Sakura is already pencilled in for a March 2015 release. More news as we get it.
