CC40: NECA Robowar by Death Weed

As everyone knows, one of our most popular lines is our figures based on characters from the Predator films. Try as we might, we have been unable to secure actor likeness for Dutch’s team from the first movie. We’re not going to let that stop us from bringing you a team of mercenaries to help Dutch fight/get killed by the predator, so we’ve gotten the rights to the next best thing: the 1988 Italian knock-off of Predator, Robowar.

Starring Reb Brown doing what Reb Brown does best: screaming incoherently and shooting things wildly. It’s basically Predator… except with a robot instead of an alien, and a boat instead of a choppah. That’s about it.

SDCC 2015: Mondo Sneak Peek at 1/6 Scale TMNT Leonardo and More

Posters, vinyl, and collectible figures will be available for Ant-Man, Superman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

SDCC 2015 Mondo TMNT, Ant-Man, and Hellboy

I’ll be making my first visit to Mondo at booth #835 this year. They first caught my attention with a PVC figure of the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, but at SDCC they’ll be introducing a 1/6 scale comics-based version of the turtles, starting with Leonardo. They’ve said they’ll have all four turtles on hand.

In addition, Mondo has a bunch of other artist-driven collectibles to show off, including a statue of the first Hellboy (from the Mignola sketch from 1991), a poster for Ant-Man, and two records for those of you who still spin vinyl – from Aliens and Superman: The Animated Series.

S.H. FIGUARTS DC INJUSTICE

I’ve never played the game, but I’m lovin’ the look of this Injustice Batman! They also had Injustice Joker on display. Both figures come with new exclusive accessories, a mask for Batman and a gas mask for Joker.

They also were teasing silhouettes of Injustice Superman and Harley Quinn.

SDCC 2014: Hot Toys Back to the Future and Aliens Movie Franchises

SDCC 2014 Hot Toys Back to the Future

Believe me – I have nothing against the many other companies that have made action figures for these movies. But when you see Hot Toys’ renditions of characters from the Back to the Future and Aliens franchises, it’s almost as if the clouds have parted and light shines down from plastic heaven.

And they’ve only just begun, with Marty McFly and his DeLorean Time Machine, and Ellen Ripley from Alien and Aliens, the latter including the Power Loader Exo-Suit. Sure, these will cost you an arm and a leg, and possibly a kidney, when you add them to your collection, but it will so be worth it!
