Funko shoots first with new Hikari Greedo photo

Funko has announced its newest Hikari mold: Greedo from Star Wars! (Also known as Episode IV: A New Hope.) The luckless bounty hunter, currently available for pre-order, will be available in an "Original" deco.

Greedo is no stranger to Funko's lines, as the character has already had a Fabrikation and a Pop! (released way back in 2011). However, this marks the first time that ANY Star Wars character has appeared in the Hikari line (take that, Boba Fett!).

Hikari Greedo may be the creepiest-looking version of Greedo that the company has released thus far (that Fabrikation, by contrast, was really cute). Much like the character himself, I suspect that this may be one of those love-it-or-hate-it designs.

Funko's Premium Hikari Greedo can be pre-ordered for US$80 and is slated for a February release.

Funko launches new subscription service photo
Funko launches new subscription service
by Scarecroodle

Not content to simply be packaged in other peoples' Loot Crates and so forth, Funko has announced plans to launch its own bi-monthly club.

The "Marvel Collector Corps" subscription box service apparently consists of six shipments (at US$25 each, not counting taxes and S&H) which arrive every other month and will contain "exclusive themed items valued at over [US$50] in every box."

The service is apparently available in both a basic "Collector" level package as well as a premium "Founder" level. The difference, as near as I can tell, is that the Founder package charges you the full US$150 for the year upfront and includes some extra goodies (including an 8-inch commemorative statue; see gallery).

The Founder package is obviously the better value although I expect that not everybody may be willing to commit to a year sight-unseen (and that totally awesome statue is contingent on a subscriber remaining in the club for a full year).

While the contents and themes of upcoming boxes may be a mystery, we at least know that the first box will have an Avengers: Age of Ultron theme and include a premium 6-inch Pop! Hulkbuster Iron Man. It's a wacky adorable figure which may entice at least a few subscribers into the club. Also included will be a t-shirt, a stylized vinyl accessory, and two "premium accessories."

Hot Toys' Thanos may conquer the collecting galaxy photo
Hot Toys' Thanos may conquer the collecting galaxy

[UPDATE: Pre-orders are now open]

Hot Toys has released some images of its upcoming 1/6-scale Guardians of the Galaxy Thanos figure.

Based on the character's appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, Hot Toys' Thanos is a wonder to behold. While the character's face appears a little more human-like than his comics counterpart (as these film characters often go), the figure conveys all of Thanos' bulk and sheer presence. And the armor? Simply put, it looks glorious.

The cosmic baddy stands 38-cm tall (putting him close to 15-inches in height) so he should stand a head above many of your other 1/6-scale collectibles. He comes with his throne which will have LED light-up effects (ie, expect him to be on the pricey side) as well as some interchangeable hands. Oh, and did I mention he looks incredible?

Hot Toys' Thanos can be pre-ordered for a sizable (but not unexpected) US$415 and is slated for a late 2015/early 2016 release. Be sure to check out the gallery for all of the amazing images.

Hikari Frankenstein goes platinum! photo
Hikari Frankenstein goes platinum!
by Scarecroodle

Funko's newest Hikari is a platinum deco for Frankenstein, currently available for pre-order.

"Platinum" Frankenstein, who is limited to a 750-piece run, sports a relatively plain metallic deco. While I'm not necessarily sure that the metal resembles platinum (or just polished iron, etc), it's not a bad concept although I'd certainly rather see him bronzed. It's certainly not a bad design, but the black eyes are somewhat of a distraction and keep Frankenstein from looking too classy. My favorite uses of the mold thus far are probably the "Distressed" and "Glitter Shock" versions seen back in October; of course, he still hasn't had a "Mystic Powers" deco, though, which will likely be my new favorite when/if it occurs.

Funko's "Platinum" Frankenstein can be pre-ordered for US$50 and is slated for a February release. At this point, I'm just wondering when we'll see a Hikari Dracula or Wolfman. Perhaps one will be shown at Toy Fair?

DCC's Bombshells Batwoman takes the whole 'bat' thing in a different direction photo
DCC's Bombshells Batwoman takes the whole 'bat' thing in a different direction

Like a bad cartoon pun, DC Collectibles' upcoming DC Comics Bombshells Batwoman re-envisions Kathy Kane as either a baseball player or a bat-wielding vigilante. The figure was recently featured as part of a Bombshells promotional video.

While I like the statue (far more than I thought I would), I don't get why they went with this bland angle instead of doing something closer to the concept art. Is her head not swung around enough for that? All things considered, however, I'd say that DCC hit this one out of the park.

For those wanting to cover their bases, retailers have already begun pitching pre-orders. You can pick this one up from Entertainment Earth for US$100 and get free shipping on your order.
