Probably won't turn into a plush dragon
Okay, Funko, you got me. You've released a wide mix of characters in your Fabrikations line so far, including the likes of Greedo, Rocket Racoon, and Jack Skellington, but up until now I haven't thought, "I really want this o...

Batman photo
What? No Louie the Lilac?
Funko (via its Vinyl Sugar imprint) will be releasing Vinyl Idolz figures based on characters from the popular 1960s Batman tv show. Pre-orders are currently available. The line-up, which is expected to release this October, ...

Funko photo
It's very Pop!ular
It's a little weird to think about how Funko is basically everywhere these days and just about covers everything. This realization has continued to dwell on my mind after Entertainment Week ran a flattering article on the com...

Superman photo
Great for superpowered business meetings
Long-time Superman antagonist (and former president) Lex Luthor is joining Kotobukiya's ArtFX+ line. The bald billionaire's statue has received a preview gallery and is currently available for pre-order. Lex is depicted in hi...

Legend of Zelda photo
Cheaper than the 3DS remake
While many fans greatly enjoyed the Wind Waker Nendoroid Link (double-reviewed), others wanted something in a slightly more traditional style. Their patience paid off earlier this year when a Majora's Mask version was announc...

Nendoroid Ooyodo photo
The assistant to the secretary ship!
[ Update: Pre-order info added ] Relaying orders to the fleet, handling communications, giving mission briefings, and occasionally getting glomped by Kongou - these are all part of Ooyodo's everyday life. Doesn't that make he...

Plush photo
Do you cuddle with them or eat them?

Horror photo
Do ghosts get vacuumed up with a pop?

One Piece photo
No, I'm not talking about Kaidou...
Whitebeard lives on in Tsume's HQS line, as the dreaded Yonko referred to as "The World's Strongest Man" is receiving one powerful statue. Standing roughly 40-cm tall (or a little under 16-inches), this resin Whitebeard statu...

WWE photo
Not to be disqualified
Just when you thought Funko's Mystery Minis line couldn't get any more exciting, the company devotes a series to the WWE! Additionally, the company plans to release (a depressingly non-oversized) Andre the Giant, Sting, and t...

Log Horizon Akatsuki photo
Just say wow, wow, wow, wow!
Let's take a moment and look at what Log Horizon has going for it: Nine light novel volumes and counting 11 manga volumes between four different titles, all ongoing Two anime seasons totaling 50 episodes (and a good chance f...

Durarara!! figma photo
It's finally happening!
Well, here's my favorite bit of news from Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Durarara!!x2 figma are happening! A series that has long been on my figma wishlist will finally get checked off, just as I was trying to cut down on my fi...

Humor photo
I give it two "ha"s
If there are few things I can't resist, it's a semi-bad pun (as you've probably noticed from my own). Shirt Woot! recently paid homage to Masters of the Universe, gaming, and a few shades of gray (less than 50, so it's cool!)...

Bishoujo Tali photo
Hilariously un-Shunya
Artist Shunya Yamashita's trademarks are his cute feminine faces and voluptuous bodies. So if we have someone who's hooded, robed, and masked, it makes me wonder... why put the Bishoujo label on her at all? Indeed, Kotobukiya...

Marvel photo
A Marvelous addition
Diamond Select Toys, makers of the popular Marvel Select line, recently announced plans to get back into making statues based on the comic versions of Marvel characters. These plans are for a re-launch of DST's high-end Marve...

Halloween photo
Cue the catcalls
I'm not sure how many of you are old enough to remember this, but once upon a time Halloween was a children's holiday devoted to things like trick or treating (and, before that, there was some Pagan stuff going on). However, ...

Titan Wars photo
Hasbro's poorly guarded secret
Usually Hasbro is a little better at keeping secrets than this. Back at BotCon we got an unexpected, and perhaps unintentional, sneak peak at designs for the previously unheard of Transformers Titan Wars line as part of a lar...

SDCC 2015 Transformers photo
Repaints, retools, and reissues
Hasbro didn't play all of their cards last month at BotCon, but they certainly played their best ones. Hasbro's display and presentation at San Diego Comic Con 2015 was a little lacking compared to years past. We did finally ...

Ghostbusters photo
I ain't afraid of no conventions!
Diamond Select Toys has posted a booth photo showing off new Ghostbusters Select figures. The line, which will consist of more than 12 figures, is now known to include Gozer the Gozerian, Janine, rooftop Dana, Walter Peck, Pe...

Bigger than ever?

DC Collectibles photo
Too much?

Or will you just meow?

Gorgoloid photo
Corroders of wallets
It came from the sea! ...or rather, it will come from the sea. Gorgoloid will be selling a new wave of six one-off Kaiju Rhaal figures at 6 PM PST tonight. Each 5-inch figure is hand-cast, hand-dyed, and hand-painted (it just...

BotCon 2015 photo
Maybe a first look at SDCC announcement?
Well this was unexpected. Near the Hasbro booth at BotCon was a large poster advertising Combiner Wars showing off all of the Combiners of the series including the first look at Bruticus. But hidden around the text was an une...

BotCon 2015 photo
Seeing double here...
USA Today was given the first look at Transformers combiner Victorion through a few comic panels from IDW. The results of Hasbro's Fan Built Combiner poll ended in an all-female Autobot combiner from the Sea of Rust with grav...

SDCC photo
She's red hot!
Well, it was only a matter of time: Kotobukiya has announced plans to sell an exclusive Marvel Bishoujo Red She-Hulk at SDCC. Unlike her mainstream counterpart, she will be limited to 1,500 pieces and -- if you can't attend t...

Your move, Hasbro
[Update: The three were shown at Tokyo Toy Show 2015 earlier this week fully painted. They were only shown in bot mode and pics can be found in the gallery. Plus pre-orders are still available in a number of places. (via Daim...
