Jazwares Mortal Kombat Press Pics

Our friends at Jazwares have sent us some shots of their upcoming 6-inch figures from the Mortal Kombat 9 video game released a month ago today. Look for these on shelves this summer.

We have a ton of figures planned, this is just the beginning…

  • #13212 Raiden

The figures will be available this summer and we will have a Toys-R-Us Comic Con exclusive! I am waiting for permission to release more information.

We are also asking the fans on our Facebook page to tell us their favorite MK characters so we make sure we make them. I’ve heard some rumors and read the blogs… I can tell you that we are currently sculpting Sonya Blade!

Jazwares Sonic the Hedgehog Group and Quick Pics

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share some quick pics of Jazware’s Sonic the Hedgehog action figures.

They’ve been steadily releasing some of Sonic’s supporting cast lately, and so I figured I’d do a group shot to show how far they’ve come. However, I’m still missing Amy, and I haven’t picked up any of the “Super” Hedgehogs. The retail prices on these at Toys ‘R’ Us have been steadily increasing, they were $4.99 when they first came out, now they’ve ballooned to $9.99 in my local TRU! So, I don’t know how long I can support this line, which sucks because even though I’m not very familiar with the Sonic Universe, I do like the character designs and the colorfulness of the line. Just look at that pic, I feel like eating some Skittles candy!
