F4F's Proto Man finally fighting robots his way out of 'Where the hell is he?!' status

Remember when First 4 Figures previewed some images of a Proto Man statue over a year ago? Yeah, I had forgotten about it, too, until we received word that two versions of the statue were going up for pre-order. F4F's 13-inch...

Kotobukiya awakens Ken Kaneki

An underrated part of Kotobukiya's ARTFX J line is their selection of male figures. They have some nice ones, especially with the Attack on Titan boys. Now you can add Tokyo Ghoul's Ken Kaneki to the picture. This one balance...

For those of you who enjoy the various school uniform designs in anime, MegaHouse is expanding its World Uniform Opeation lineup with A Certain Scientific Railgun's Mikoto Misaka! This is a line of 1/10-scale figures, so thin...

SpongeBob Minimates get additional release info & images photo
SpongeBob Minimates get additional release info & images
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys has released new images and details for its SpongeBob Squarepants Minimates, currently available for pre-order.

Last seen at NY Toy Fair, the figures are based on the popular cartoon of the same name which features a talking sponge doing... um, talking sponge things? (Other than the Grool from Goosebumps, I've never seen a sponge with a mouth so I hardly know what's normal for that.) All kidding aside, it's more amusing than it sounds and the show has been successful enough to last 16 years at this point.

The figures look great and may even be better than the TMNT Minimates. The selection (which is broken into the following 2-packs) includes SpongeBob and Sandy, Patrick and Squidward, Mr. Krab with Perch Perkins, and a rarer (1-per-case) Grandpappy Redbeard and orange Perch Perkins variant.

DST's latest press release notes the series as hitting retailers this week despite online specialty stores noting a later arrival. Granted, the online retailers may be a little cheaper than your local Toys "R" Us.

Threezero shows off their first TMNT figures

Threezero has another license under its roof, this one being Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and specifically the live-action films. Yes, the Michael Bay ones. They've also announced their first two 1/6-scale figures for the lin...

Funko puts a price on Hikari Bossk's head +
Funko puts a price on Hikari Bossk's head + "Forcefield Glitter" Gigantor
by Scarecroodle

Funko's Premium Hikari "Metallic" Bossk and Gemini Collectibles-exclusive Hikari "Forcefield Glitter" Gigantor are currently available for pre-order.

Bossk will be the third bounty hunter in the Hikari line, following Greedo (who has received a few decos now) and Boba Fett. It's a cute mold, probably the best-looking of the three, and the metallic deco works well. Unfortunately, he pre-sold out yesterday at a few of the usual online retailers. Given that he's from the larger Premium series, Bossk will retail for around US$80.

"Forcefield Glitter" Gigantor is already the fourth or fifth Gigantor we've seen. Like some of the previous Gigantor designs, he's an exclusive and is apparently limited to 700 pieces. He's to be sold exclusively through Gemini Collectibles (which has carried a few exclusive Hikaris in the past) and will run you US$48.

Want to pre-order both at once? Gemini Collectibles has Bossk listed for US$69.

Embrace the Dark Hadou with Oni Akuma

Street Fighter is a funny franchise, isn't it? Its roots are humble enough, but like the Fast and Furious series, each subsequent installment gets more and more insane. It has gone from a relatively small game about, wel...

Bandai rolls out another Iron Man in the fight against Ultron

Are you hyped for Avengers: Age of Ultron? I certainly hope so, otherwise this post will mean nothing to you. Since Marvel Studios probably has a directive to always be cranking out new Iron Man armors, the upcoming film will...

Kotobukiya's Inazuma is ready to sortie

In an anime full of moe shipgirls, Inazuma is perhaps the most moe of them all. Her timid personality hasn't stopped her debut as a Kotobukiya scale figure, though! This version is based on the KanColle anime design. Her expr...

Does DST's Marvel Now! Select Hawkeye hit the mark? photo
Does DST's Marvel Now! Select Hawkeye hit the mark?
by Scarecroodle

DST's Marvel Select Hawkeye (based on his Marvel Now! appearance) has made his way into ShopMarvel and may show up in a Disney Store near you (and on the Disney Store site) within the next two weeks.

Clint comes with two optional heads (shades or a nose bandage; although you also have the option of displaying a headless Hawkeye), his bow, a quiver, arrows, and his trusty dog, Lucky.

Hawkeye is a pretty great-looking figure and it's cool to see extra like Lucky. You might even say... we're lucky to have him! (Thank you, folks! I'll be here all week!) He's something of a must-have for Avengers fans who can pick him up for US$25.

First 4 Figures debuts NiGHTS as next Sega All-Star
