Three new figures from FansProject combine homages to figures past with current articulation and engineering.  Function X-01 Code transforms into a futuristic four-wheeled vehicle whose driver becomes the robot’s head;  Function X-02 Quadruple U Becomes a wolf-like creature whose trainer becomes its head in robot mode;  Function X-03 Smart Robin becomes a futuristic star fighter whose pilot becomes the head of the robot.  Each of these figures is listed at $68.99, with the Function X-01 being very limited.

The third of the “Nissan brothers” is getting a Masterpiece figure as well.  Bluestreak will be joining Prowl and Smokescreen in September, and he is listed at $79.99.  We also still have the other two on pre-order, so feel free to grab Prowl and Smokescreen while you’re here.

This new 1/6 scale figure includes a brand new likeness of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, light up effects, armor parts, a lab table covered with blueprints and armor parts, a lit lab floor base, an articulated robotic arm with camera, and more.  This set is listed at $269.99, $10 off the MSRP.

Play Imaginative is also releasing a 1/6 scale Iron Man, this time in the Mark VII armor and coming with a Hall of Armor bay.  This version is a follow-up to their Super Alloy Batman, and will be at least 88% die-cast, plus light up sections and more.  We have this set listed at $449.99.

Amazon Lightning Deal on Mattel Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters Tonight at 6PM PST

Folks have been making the best of the current Hasbro Marvel Legends sale at – right now RoML Series 3 is available for under $9 each - and it looks like Mattel is going to get a turn with an upcoming Lightning sale on the Mattel Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters.

It’s set to kick off at 6PM PST tonight (12/6), and these flash sales usually go for a couple of hours. I think it will be limited to Batman, Bane, and Catwoman, because those are the only ones available from Amazon. (The more rare figures are also in stock, but are from other sellers just using the Amazon sales channel.) Should be some good prices, because they’re already priced pretty well:

But wait for 6PM PST for the Amazon Lightning Deal!

MattyCollector Cyber Monday Flash Sale Features Masters of the Universe Classics Evil-Lyn and Free Shipping

The first of Matty’s Flash Sales are on, and it’s none other than the classic MOTUC (is that redundant?) Evil-Lyn. When the sale page first went up, not everything on the Black Friday / Cyber Monday bundle page was discounted – now all items have sale prices, with the exception of the Temple of Darkness Sorceress. I placed an order this morning, and also got an additional shipping discount that was oddly a penny more than the shipping cost.

Oddly, I couldn’t get the total I calculated to match what Digital River quoted me – but their total was less than mine, so what me worry? Happy shopping!

Mattel Batman Apptivity Figures On Sale on

I am one of the ten people who don’t use an Apple iPad, so I won’t be partaking of this deal that Mattel has on, for 25% off of its Apptivity figures. The way it works is that you download a free app for your iPad, like the Apptivity Batman app, and the figure has special contacts on the bottom so the iPad knows what figure you’re using and where it is on the screen. Sounds like it could be fun!

NYCC 2012: Square Enix Play Arts Kai

Square Enix continues to impress me, show after show. They have some awesome stuff on display for Street Fighter, Halo, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, and Mass Effect. But I was really impressed by a Starship Troopers figure I hadn’t seen before, and the Batman stuff is mind-blowing. After Hot Toys I didn’t think I’d collect another scale for The Dark Knight, but their Bane, Catwoman, and Joker are looking really damn good.

The Amazing Spider-Man and the Dark Knight Launch New Super-Articulated 1/12 Action Figure Line from Medicom

Medicom has had modest success with its 1/6 scale Real Action Hero line but they are now looking to turn the 1/12 scale on its head with its new MAFEX line of action figures, as highlighted in this blog post at Featuring super-articulation, great sculpts, and accessories, these figures promise to be the best in class in 6 inches (6.3 inches to be precise) – sorry Hasbro and Mattel! Of course these are going to be import figures only, for those of us in the US – so you shouldn’t be expecting mass market action figure prices either.

These are available to pre-order now on the site:

At 2,820 JPY, they are roughly $36 and change each, not including overseas shipping. They’re listed with an expected April 2013 release date.
