Kotobukiya previews their Marvel Now Deadpool "Merc with a Mouth" ARTFX+ Statue

"I might be crazy, but I'm not KARAAAZY."

Deadpool (Wade Winston Wilson) is a fictional character, a mercenary and anti-hero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool first appeared in New Mutants #98 (Feb. 1991).

A disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of New Mutants, and later in issues of X-Force. The character has since starred in several ongoing series, and shares titles with other characters such as Cable. Also known as the "Merc with a Mouth", Deadpool is famous for his talkative nature and his tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect.


These are preview pictures of Kotobukiya's Marvel Now Deadpool ARTFX+ Statue. It does look pretty awesome and might prove to be a hot seller given the character's rise in popularity these days. Why that is I'm not too sure but he does get a lot of attention and is proving to be as hot as Wolverine.

MONDO Is Doing Toys: Iron Giant 16" Collectible Figure, TMNT and 1/6 scale Alfred Hitchcock

Exclusive Comic-Con Preview for Mondo's Very First Toys

Austin, TX - Monday, July 21, 2014 - Mondo is doing toys! The launch of figures for The Iron Giant, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Alfred Hitchcock are Mondo's first foray into toy collectibles, with the subjects and diversity of design reflecting Mondo's unique passions. The initial offerings include replicas as well as toys from artist-based designs, which can be previewed at San Diego Comic-Con in Mondo's booth (#835).

Toys join Mondo's growing list of pop culture passions in posters, vinyl, gallery events, VHS and apparel. "I am so pumped to announce toys! We've been working on this in secrecy for a year and now it's time to let you guys know about it. We'll be focusing on existing properties that we love as well as working with artists to bring their own creations to life. This is a new area for us, but I resist the term 'expansion' since the goal for Mondo has always been to be a place where artists and designers can work to have their visions realized, whether that's through posters, gallery shows, vinyl, apparel or now toys," said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael.


THE IRON GIANT
Celebrating its 15th anniversary, The Iron Giant has reaped praise as being among the greatest animated films ever made (recently ranked #7 on Time Out's 100 Best Animated Movies list) and it was important for Mondo to honor the film with an appropriately stunning collectible.

The Iron Giant Collectible Figure
The 16" tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable "S" to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the "War" version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.

Pre-order Coo Model 1/6 male standard bodies, muscle bodies, seamless / half-seamless bodies

Coo Model is going to give toy and figure collectors a lot of options when it comes to the male body type. They are introducing not one, not two but six different male body types for 12-inch figure collectors to choose from for their customizing needs and these are not expensive either. They are also compatible with most Hot Toys products so these will make ideal bodies for the extra 1/6 scale head sculpts that are lying around.

First up will be the No: B34001 1/6 standard male body (narrow shoulders) which will come with a body whose height up to the shoulders will be 25 cm. 7 interchangeable hands, pair of feet and neck connectors (2 types) will also be included. The Model scale Height is designed to be equivalent to a real person of about 1.8 m (180 cm)


Coo Model No: B34002 1/6 standard male body (narrow shoulders) (TALL) version will come with a body whose height up to the shoulders will be 27 cm. 7 interchangeable hands, pair of feet and neck connectors (2 types) will also be included.

Comparison pictures: Hot Toys Die-cast 1/6th scale Iron Patriot and War Machine Version 1.0

continued from previous post...

This toy blog post covers comparison pictures of Hot Toys MMS195-D01 Movie Masterpiece Series Die-cast 1/6th scale "Iron Man 3" Iron Patriot 12-inch Collectible Action Figure with the Hot Toys War Machine Mark 1 (version 1.0 - the original from "Iron Man 2") plus pictures taken with the other 1/6 scale James Rhodes (Terrence Howard as Lt. Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes as seen in the first Iron Man film).

I didn't get War Machine version 2.0 as it is basically a repaint of Iron Patriot in the dull gray colors of the first War Machine. War Machine version 2.0 looks sleeker than the first War Machine figure, the War Machine Mark 1, which was bulkier and built to look like a tank compared to Tony Stark's Iron Man armor suit which was more streamlined.


Having already covered Hot Toys 1/6 scale Iron Patriot die-cast collectible figure's packaging and contents HERE, plus light-up features HERE, 1/6 scale head sculpt with authentic likeness of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes / Iron Patriot HERE, doing the salute HERE (including comparison side-by-side pictures with The Avengers Captain America) and testing the pose-ability of the armor suit HERE, I guess this last post with comparison pictures would be most appropriate.

ACI Toys ACI-19 1/6 scale Warriors series: Thracian General 12-inch figure is coming soon

The first historical record about the Thracians is found in the Iliad, where they are described as allies of the Trojans in the Trojan War against the Greeks. Thracians were regarded by other people as warlike, ferocious, and bloodthirsty. They were seen as "barbarians" by ancient Greeks and Romans. Plato in his Republic considers them, along with the Scythians, extravagant and high spirited and his Laws considers them war-like nations grouping them with Celts, Persians, Scythians, Iberians and Carthaginians.

Spartacus was a Thracian enslaved by Rome, who led a large slave uprising in Southern Italy in 73–71 BC. Before being defeated, his army of escaped gladiators and slaves defeated several Roman legions in what is known as the Third Servile War.


This will be an upcoming release from ACI Toys: ACI-19 1/6 Warriors series: Thracian General 12-inch figure. ACI pretty much specialize in the warriors from the late BC / early AD period. They have released a 1/6 scale Roman Gladiator "Flamma" 12-inch Figure in the past (reviewed HERE and HERE) and followed that up with the disastrous "Total Rome!" 1/6 scale Roman Legionary Optio 12-inch action figure (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE)

This looks pretty nice and brings to men the exceptional Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS114 1/6 scale King Leonidas 12-inch collectible figure from the movie "300". Check out the reviews and pictures posted on my toy blog HERE, HERE and HERE.

Kotobukiya presents DC Comics Damian Wayne Robin ARTFX+ Statue - Son of Bruce Wayne

Damian Wayne is a fictional character in the DC Universe. Damian is the child of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul and thus the grandson of Batman's villain, Ra's al Ghul. The character was created by Mike W. Barr, and first appeared in Batman: Son of the Demon (1987).

Having spent his gestation in a laboratory, Damian was raised by his mother until ten years of age, at which point she left him in the care of his father, who had not been aware of his son's existence until that point in time. Damian is violent and self-important, and was trained by the League of Assassins, learning to kill at a young age. After the events of Batman R.I.P. and Batman: Battle for the Cowl, Damian has taken up the identity of Robin, becoming the fifth and current person to use the Boy Wonder's identity.


This is the latest DC Comics Damian Wayne Robin ARTFX+ Statue to be previewed by Kotobukiya, the Japanese company that has been hard at work bringing all the DC Comics characters to life in statue form. They have done tremendous work and the statues are nice but I'm very much an action figure kind of guy. If it's not articulated, then I don't want it. Having said that, I do have some statues in my rather large toy collection, and three of those statues are from Kotobukiya - the Kotobukiya Marvel Bishoujo collection 1/7th scale X-Force Psylocke ninja 8-inch Statue (Reviewed HERE and HERE), Kotobukiya DC Comics Bishoujo Wonder Woman (Reviewed HERE and HERE) and Kotobukiya Batman Arkham City Collectors Edition 14 cm (5.5") Statue (posted HERE). My favorite Batman statue is still the DC Direct "Batman: Black and White" Mike Mignola statue (posted in my toy blog HERE).

25 inches (635mm) tall Vampirella Premium Format™ Figure by Sideshow Collectibles

She will bewitch and bedevil you - Vampirella like you’ve never seen her before!

Vampirella is a fictional character, a comic book vampire superheroine created by Forrest J Ackerman and costume designer Trina Robbins in Warren Publishing's black-and-white horror comics magazine Vampirella #1 (Sept. 1969). Vampirella was originally presented as an inhabitant of the planet Drakulon, a world where a vampiric race lived on blood and where blood flowed in rivers. Vampirella has many of the typical vampiric powers, including superhuman physical abilities, shapeshifting into a bat, immortality, and a mesmeric stare. She is not prone to the race's traditional weaknesses, such as daylight, holy water, garlic, or crosses. She does not attack people to drink their blood, except occasionally when she herself is attacked or desires to kill. She is almost always scantily clad in her signature red sling suit with a white collar and wearing shiny black knee-high boots.


Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Vampirella Premium Format™ Figure. Designed by renowned pinup artist, Stanley ‘Artgerm’ Lau, the mesmerizing classic horror pulp icon rises up in an eerie graveyard themed composition. Hand outstretched to release a bat into the night, the bloodthirsty beauty dons her classic costume, an enchanting representation of the atoning vampire huntress.

New Teaser Images from The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly

Avengers: Age of Ultron is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is intended to be the sequel to 2012's Marvel's The Avengers and the eleventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Entertainment Weekly nabbed these marvelous shots from the upcoming Avengers sequel.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr (Tony Stark / Iron Man), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers / Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Dr Bruce Banner / The Hulk), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton / Hawkeye), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Pietro Maximoff / Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch) with Paul Bettany (the Vision), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and James Spader (Ultron) opens in theaters 05/01/15.


New movie means all new superhero costumes for our heroes which means all new figures for collectors. The collection and wait for new figures continues. Not too sure if that's the same for the Hulk as I don't really see the Hulk having / needing a new costume. After seeing Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" which was one of the best scenes in the movie IMHO, I wonder how Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Quicksilver will do in the Avengers sequel.

Kotobukiya Marvel Comics 1/7 scale Jubilee Bishoujo Statue - Jubilee never looked this good!

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The Marvel Bishoujo collection, bringing you new interpretations of familiar superheroes and villains, continues with the perpetually youthful mutant and sidekick to Wolverine, Jubilee! First appearing in the pages of X-Men in 1989, Jubilation Lee was an orphan and runaway living in a mall when she ran into fellow mutant shoppers Dazzler, Psylocke, Rogue, and Storm. Following them to their base, the teen eventually signed on with the X-Men officially, becoming the youngest member and using her unique pyrotechnic powers to help save the day for decades until she became depowered (and subsequently a vampire). Jubilee’s most iconic look is now captured in a fantastic Bishoujo statue based on a new illustration by master artist Shunya Yamashita!


An awesome product of the late ‘80s, Jubilee was a spunky young girl with a loud sense of style, and all of that resonated with the fans and will again with this hot new statue. Jubilee stands a rocking pose, legs apart for balance and leaning slightly as she raises an arm into the air in preparation for unleashing a fiery display of plasmoids! The young mutant wears a hot update on her classic costume complete with blue high tops, jean short shorts with X logo belt, pink tube top, bright yellow jacket, and shredded black gloves. Jubilee accessorizes that ensemble with an X pin on her chest, choker, and pink sunglasses perched on her head. All of those details, as well as the heroine’s beautiful Bishoujo-styled face, are intricately sculpted and painted and look great on her!

Pre-Order ThreeZero 20" Titanfall Atlas with fully articulated 6-inch IMC Battle Rifle Pilot figure

Titanfall is a 2014 multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. In Titanfall, players control "pilots" and their mech-style Titans, and fight in six-on-six matches set in war-torn outer space colonies. Titanfall is a shooter game played from a first-person perspective. Players fight as free-running foot soldier "pilots" who can command agile, mech-style exoskeletons — "Titans" — to complete team-based objectives. The game is set on derelict and war-torn colonies at the Frontier fringe of space exploration as either the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) or the Militia.

The Atlas is the original Titan model produced by Hammond Robotics. It has a balance of mobility and armor, having more mobility than the Ogre, but more armor than the Stryder. This was the first Titan to be revealed. Based on photos of the titan standing next to a pilot it can be estimated to be between 20-25 feet tall. Its main entry point is in its chest, which opens up for the player. The Atlas also has a secondary entry point in a small hatch in the top. This is also the eject port for the Atlas.


ThreeZero has released a huge gallery and info for their upcoming Titanfall Atlas with 6-inch tall Pilot. Each Atlas features fully openable hatch, comes with 6″ tall and articulated pilot; and light up feature for top part and cockpit with interchangeable blue and red lights. Please see the specs below for the full info.

Can Hot Toys "Iron Man 3" 1/6th scale Die-cast Iron Patriot execute the famous landing pose?

continued from previous post...

We have all seen it. That famous and iconic Iron Man landing pose where our invincible iron-clad hero comes crashing down from above with left knee bent forward and right arm fist clenched to steady himself. Bam! What a sight. It has been repeated so many times and in so many medium everyone who's a fan would know what I'm talking about. If not, check out the pictures below to see what I mean.


Truth be told, these are all CGI i.e. computer generated images which make it look possible but in reality, this particular pose is almost impossible to execute properly at all. With an actual 1/6 scale fully articulated 12-inch figure, the limitations of the articulations of the body means that this landing pose is not possible to perform. Many have tried and failed. The poses I've seen are mostly awkward looking and the figure doesn't look as dynamic as in these drawn pictures. I tried using regular 12-inch figures (on which the 1/6 scale Iron Man figures are based on) to perform the same pose and was only satisfied with one particular brand which could do it - see my toy blog post HERE of the various 1/6th scale 12-inch Action Figure Bodies I used: Hot Toys, X-Series etc to determine which is best.

Hot Toys seemed to have achieved it in their preview pictures of the MMS123 Movie Masterpiece Series Iron Man 2 1/6th scale Mark IV Limited Edition Collectible Figurine (posted HERE) but since its release, I have been unable to get it into the desired position (see my attempt HERE). So many others have failed in this endeavor as well. So begs the question: Can Hot Toys "Iron Man 3" 1/6th scale Die-cast Iron Patriot execute the famous and iconic landing pose?

Kotobukiya 1/6 scale Wolverine Brown Costume Danger Room Sessions Fine Art (8-inch) Statue

Kotobukiya’s amazing X-Men Danger Room Sessions Fine Art Statue series can not be stopped! We’ve seen a variety of mutant heroes and even some reformed villains battling the holographic dangers in the X-Men training facility, and the latest fan-favorite character to return to the training facility with a new look is Wolverine Brown Costume! A nearly immortal mutant with a powerful healing factor and heightened senses, Wolverine was further enhanced by an adamantium-laced skeleton and ultra-sharp claws. Throughout his years with the X-Men he’s worn several different costumes, with the brown and yellow one of the most popular with his fans. In all of his incarnations he’s served as one of the team’s most powerful fighters, honing his skills in the Danger Room. Ever since the early days of Marvel Comics’ mutant adventures, “X” teams have trained together in the ultra high tech facility known as the Danger Room, equipped with state of the art adaptive combat and athletics routines that challenge each participant in unique ways. The training facility has been featured prominently in X-Men comics over the years, as well as in various cartoons and X-Men films.


Barely focusing his mindless berserker rage, Wolverine crouches in a combat pose with his claws popped and ready for action. Swapping out his usual blue and yellow, Logan wears his classic brown and yellow costume with flared boots, red X-Men logo belt, and of course the iconic pointed cowl. Balancing on the balls of his feet as he prepares to leap at the next simulated enemy in the Danger Room, Wolverine’s entire body is tensed with its rippling physique sculpted in high detail. Logan fans will really appreciate the display options with this version that include two portraits: the masked head is close-mouthed and focused while the bare head unleashes the ferocity with flowing hair and a wild scream!

Hot Toys RoboCop: 1/6th ED-209 Collectible is already starting to crack at the dome. Be warned!

Hot Toys MMS204 1/6th scale ED-209 Collectible has only been released recently and the dome has already started to crack! This is NO JOKING MATTER. Imagine paying good hard-earned money for something that disintegrates in front of your very eyes and there's nothing you can do about it.

Just sharing something I read and saw on One Shot's World.com message board posted by "T-800" which was shared by George Dixon on facebook:

"After seeing the pics of Aztecas Hot Toys ED209, I went to dust mine off to take some pictures and guess what......THE DOME IS STARTING TO FALL APART!!!! For those that don't know, Hot Toys released a ED209 back in the day. It looked good but the dome would to fall apart. It started by cracking and then it would rot and just fall apart. Now with this new release supposedly they had fix the problem. Well I've had this figure for about maybe 2 months and guess what they didn't fix shit. Sorry to burst anybody's bubble but they need to check their figure now. I put these pictures up on another forum and the people there are going nuts. The good thing is that everybody is contacting sideshow and they are at least trying to fix the problem. But everybody that I've talked to and and friends that I have on Facebook are pretty sure that Hot Toys will not do a damn thing about it. Now for the price of $400 and a little bit more we were expecting this problem to be fixed. Somebody contacted sideshow and it was their advice was to put some sort of plastic sealant on it. I think that's all bullshit. For the money that we put in this figure it should have been fixed and it was everybody's fear that this would happen. Since Hot Toys knew problem with the first release that should have been their number one priority. Now I can forgive the crappy ass voice they put on here since I rarely use it but this dome will make this figure worthless.I don't know if they care, I don't know if they will ever do anything about it which I doubt but like I've always said if you're going to spend the money and these things are not cheap at least give us a figure that won't fall apart in a couple months."


Rubber material has a tendency to crack over time and rubber used on bodies or costumes / outfits tend to cause problems to collectors because somehow the material is not designed to last the test of time but this collectible has only been released recently and already cracks appear.
