DC Collectibles Solicits Reveal DC Comics Designer Series by Greg Capullo, More Supervillains, and Arrow 2-Pack

DC Collectibles played the Spoiler Alert game with the Capullo Riddler, and he’ll be joined by 3 other figures in the first series: Batman, Talon, and Nightwing. They’re due out in April and May next year. The solicits also more New 52 super-villains with Bizarro and Deathstorm (who?), and included the Arkham City Two-Face that was teased in the week with Solomon Grundy feature – apparently he’s on his own, and not with another wave of Arkham action figures.

Finally, an action figure 2-pack for the Arrow TV series, with Oliver Queen and Deathstroke – are you guys excited about this?

SDCC 2013: Square Enix Play Arts Kai (Preview Night)

Square Enix Play Arts Kai (1 of 41)

It feels like there’s been a shift in the development of Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai lines. Its roots are in its video game licenses, but this show, most of the new products in the pipeline are in the various DC licenses that they’ve added over the past couple years. From Arkham Asylum / City, they’ve moved into the Dark Knight Trilogy and Man of Steel in force, and they’re continuing to move forward with their DC variants line.

They have two cases that are still covered – if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on Arkham Origins. Any other guesses?

Incoming: Hot Toys Dark Knight Catwoman, Avengers Hulk, G.I. JOE Retaliation Snake Eyes, and More

Hot Toys fell a little behind on its original schedule for some of these figures, but it looks like it’ll be worth the wait. I can’t get over how humongous the Hulk is – I’ve seen quite a few pictures of him prior to this but nothing that drove home his size like this. I’ve got him and Catwoman on my list. How about you?

If you’re still looking to pick any of these up, Catwoman, Snake Eyes, and Barney Ross are available to pre-order at Sideshow, and Hulk is available to pre-order at BigBadToyStore.

Hey Hot Toys fans,

As the Iron Man Mark VII Collectible Figurines are continuing to be shipped out, we would like to share a sneak peek with you today on the products coming next in the near future.

Hot Toys Upcoming Releases

Be expected to see Catwoman from The Dark Knight Rises, Hulk from The Avengers, Mark VII Collectible Bust from Iron Man 3, Barney Ross from The Expendables 2, and Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe Retaliation!

Stay tuned and thanks for your support!

WebSwipe: Daniel Picard’s 1:1 Toys

Daniel Picard Photography

I came across the Daniel Picard Photography website via a Sideshow Toys Facebook post and have been cursing his photography and Photoshop skills ever since. He has filled up his 1:1 Toys project by “using collectible toys and and giving them the illusion of being full-size.”

His shots include figures from Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys, 3A Toys, and more – now I envy his collection too.

Toy Fair 2013: Square Enix Play Arts Kai

I am getting around to posting pics in the backlog from Toy Fair. My tag team partner from Fwoosh, Hagop, did such a great job with coverage that the pressure was off to get things posted – but I realized that I had more stuff in the backlog than I actually posted.

Here’s a look at the Play Arts Kai offerings from Square Enix. The 8-inch scale is a bit of an anomaly for the rest of my collection, but between the quality of sculpt and articulation scheme I put the Play Arts Kai Street Fighters on my Best of 2012 list. They’re continuing the line with more Street Fighter 4 figures – just not fast enough for my liking.
