I was really impressed with Buzzy Fret’s pics of the threezero Game of Thrones Tyrion Lannister. If the imp is representative of what threezero can do, then this 1/6 scale Heisenberg will be an indispensable part of your (and my) Breaking Bad collection. I’ve seen a number of custom Walter Whites in 1/6 scale and thought it was a great opportunity for someone to pick up the license – I’m glad it’s threezero. They’ve got the manufacturing chops to do the figure justice, and with the quality of sculpt and paint work we’re seeing from them, I’m bullish that this will turn out great.
To top it off, Heisenberg is coming with a bunch of accessories (more than the imp and Michonne’s pets from Walking Dead), including his hat, glasses, sunglasses, gun, stacks of cash, and more. You can pre-order at threezero’s store for $150 or from Entertainment Earth for $139.99. That’s an exceptional value for this figure – Jesse Pinkman must be in charge of the pricing there.

I’ve been having a great time taking pictures of the exclusive Sideshow Collectibles Batman from last year (check out @AFPRon on Instagram) – it’s easily my favorite Batman figure I’ve owned (and I have a lot of them). While the sixth scale Batman is still available in the non-exclusive version, if your tastes run toward the black and gray, Sideshow has put up a preview of a “Gotham Knight” variant of Batman.
In addition to the palette change to black and gray, the Gotham Knight version of Bats has some other changes from the original. It comes with three portraits with interchangeable facial expressions – the newest having extra long bat ears, reminiscent of Kelley Jones’s rendition of the Dark Knight. Mix and match ears to grimaces to your heart’s content. The bat symbol on his chest is also different from the original, and the buckle on his utility belt matches the pouches (on the earlier Batman the buckle was a darker metallic.
I think I’m set with the blue and gray, but if you haven’t yet jumped on this line, you couldn’t go wrong with either. The Gotham Knight Batman will go up for pre-order tomorrow, for $199.99. Sideshow is also giving away a Gotham Knight Batman – so check out the preview to enter.

For a while it was tough to find the Star Wars Black Series Stormtroopers. They were originally in the wave 3 case packs that included prequel Obi Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, and a repack of Han Solo. Since Han had just been released in wave 2, I was expecting smaller orders and less availability for the wave overall.
That seems to be alleviated now, as Amazon has the Stormtroopers on sale for $15.34 (normally $22.99). Since Amazon is notorious for making many price adjustments throughout each day, Entertainment Earth also has the Stormtroopers for $19.99 each (but they’ll arrive in May.) After all, you’ve got to have at least 50 Stormtroopers, right?
The final three characters have been revealed for the Mattycollector Club 200X subscription, which Mattel announced at Toy Fair 2015 for the second half of this year. Prahvus, Queen Grayskull, and King Chooblah will be joining Callix, Evil Seed, Ceratus, and five disembodied 200X heads (the exclusive Eternian Heads accessory pack) to round out the six month sub.
The selection reminded me of one aspect I really liked about the 200X cartoon – the flashbacks to the times before He-Man really gave some good backstory and broadened the MOTU universe.
