Its been a couple of days into Toy Fair and there has been some interesting stuff.

First of all, DC Superheroes is getting some badass villain sculpts. Apparently there is a series coming out right now that has Steele, Parasite and Mongol(great sculpt too bad Doomsday wasn't as big) and they showed off Manbat and Clayface. The only bad part about this series is that it is limited to Batman and Superman characters and that new characters/villains are not packed heavy.

Diamond Select showed off some Marvel Zombies for Marvel Select and they look pretty damn good. Not sure if I will get them though. I am looking forward to Mephisto and the Skrull/Brood two pack.

Speaking of the Brood. The Brood Queen will be the BAF after the Blob wave. These figures have listings on the Hasbro website

Marvel Legends:
BAF Brood Queen Hydra Soldier
BAF Brood Queen Bucky
Baf Brood Queen Captain America
Marvel Girl
Black Knight
X3 Colossus
Cyclops
Danger

I heard the Hydra Soldier and Marvel Girl have variants and that Marvel Girl's is actually a different character.

However, no new Marvel Legends were shown, only Thor in the package.

Marvel Toys(formerly Toybiz) showed off their AWESOME Legendary Comic Book Heroes toy line that has Judge Dredd, Witch Blade, Savage Dragon and a BAF of a 10 inch Pitt for the first series and Marv from Sin City in the second series as well as Conan. These things look GREAT and have a pretty good price tag compared to Hasbro Marvel Legends which look no where near as good and the BAF isn't as tall.

SOTA announced that the final character line up for the next Street Fighter series is Zangief, Honda, Dhalsim and R. Mika(who beat both Guy and Oro by a couple of votes).

I find the idea that She-Hulk comes packaged with a pair of man boobs to be both repulsive and hilarious.

I really hated how the voting was done this time around, I didn't even bother since it was just one big clusterfuck ('everyone e-mail the one character you want in!') I'll buy R.Mika since I want all the SF figures, but I don't think she'd have won in the old style 'pick A or B in each of the 5 catagory' voting system...

and that Dante from DMC1 will be in the next Player Select series.

I had heard that the DMC producer didn't want an American company doing Dante as SOTA had been trying to acquire him for a while.

If you go to the action-figure.com TF2007 picture gallery you will also see their Tyrant.

I've totally lost track of the Belmont lineage over the years. Which Belmont is this?

THE Belmont, actually. The original and most-featured one. Apparently in his original brown-outfitted iteration from Famicom, Super Famicom, and X68000 Akumajou Dracula, as opposed to the Chronicles remake (which I'm in a minority of liking, I hear...I'd prefer this one, and not just because I dressed up as Chronicles Simon for a party one time*). *really

It's probably like how NECA got rights to Hannibal Lector (which I like to spell "Lektor") even though Hopkins for the longest time said he was againist a 'toy' of a serial killer... there is no problem the right amount of money cannot fix.

Capcom probably didn't want an American Company to make Dante.... for a price SOTA found reasonable enough to make it worth their efforts (much like they past on God of War because there was no way to make back the cost of the license with just Kratos figures in their view)

Surpringly few, and secret to protect the innocent. Suffice to say, you can get plastic crosses, gloves, and whips for surprisingly cheap at costume stores. Glad I had a black Equador poncho cape to wear for Simon's fur coat.

edit: maybe this will do.

I am digging those SOTC figures. I just got the game last week and I am loving it.

Here are some Marvel Legends from the Brood Queen series

http://marvelousnews.com/index.php?catid=23&itemid=10739

Although the sculpts are great I wish there was more shading in the figures. The Rachel Grey figure doesn't seem to be the best, but is an improvement over the White Queen figure.

Cornerstorecomics.com currently has a deal for $18 each.

Link Here

NECA has a preview of their Simon Belmont figure who is based off the cover of the original NES game.

Link Here

Although he looks cool, he is really going to clash against the future Castlevania characters who are based more on the Symphony of the Night designs.

Marvel Select showed off some previews to their Marvel Zombies Hulk

Link Here

Looks okay, but not as impressive as the Captain America or Spider-Man zombies.

I got myself Mephisto this week and its a pretty swell figure and fits with my Marvel Legends. The throne is really cool.

Speaking of Marvel Legends, apparently Hasbro's second Marvel Legends series has started showing up at Wal-Marts as well as the new Icons figures. I haven't found them yet, but I really want to get Blob and Quicksliver.

Apparently High-Dream had a falling out with Capcom and have ceased production on their Capcom vs SNK 2 figures. This is what they had to say at the action-figure.com forums

I don't like it, I don't want to work with greedy ppl/companies hehe.
Not even the biggest company work that way nowadays in the anime/manga field. its bad for the product, its bad for the fans, and its a waste of time and money, a shame for sure...

Good accessories

-
Really loose joints
paint chip on hips


I also got the new Marvel Legends series that comes with Blob and it is a major improvement over the first series. Even Ultimate Wolverine, who looked weird in all the pictures I have seen isn't as bad in person. I wish that waves like this could be cut down to 6 figures though. Blob's hands could have been attached to the arms and his head could have been attached to the upper torso.

I think there is nothing I want coming out for a while so I can save some money.

So I guess your Akuma didn't split in two? mine sure did.

I'm honestly so disappointed in that figure, from the crappier joints, to the fact his waist popped in half, this mullety hair, the fact he can't hold the fireball right, the over sized cavnerness box...

He's a failure on EVERY level... so long as the boxes are smaller for Revolution and there's some quality control there's still hope for the line (not that SOTA doesn't have my balls in a vice grip and wouldn't buy all of them anyway), but this is the worse "preview of how we're going to handle the line" EVER "we're gonna charge $5 more to give you far too much packaging and a broken figure, enjoy!"

... I hope Dan and Sean get a smaller Shotokan body (They can even share a sculpt, I just pray they're not Akuma sized too)

Damn sorry to hear about the breakage.

I was pleased to find nothing this round broke on me. Every round I got before this I had one figure break on me, but I guess its just statistics this time. THere is a bigger chance of finding a wack figure out of 5 then out of 3.

I like the style of the packaging, but the size is definetly an issue. I guess they are are trying to use one size of package that can use over and over with a differnt character face on it so that when they come to Hugo, he will fit in it. The thing is, I am also a MOC collection for the Street Fighter line and I am finding it difficult to find a place to store my MOC previews. I like the plastic casing since there are no twist ties, but they can probably thin that out a bit.

In other news, NECA showed off a preview of Alucard.

I hope the cape doesn't get in the way of arm movement.

While the Alucard prototype has potential I suspect that between that cape and his hair Arikado is going to have a tough time with any articulation whatsoever.

Dan figure is available for pre-order at the Toyfare store.

Link Here

Its "limited" at 2500 so it should stay around for a while. I think I will order it this weekend. I just need to find that promotion code from the magazine to save 5%.

Speaking of exclusives, SDCC will have an exclusive F4 variant of She-Hulk.

Link Here

It looks pretty cool for an exclusive.

Here is a list of Hasbro's SDCC figures

Transformers Alternator Rodimus Prime
GI Joe Destro
Titanium Transformers Menasor
Battlestar Galactica Titanium series vehicle 3 pack
Star Wars Obi-Wan & Yoda with coin
501st Legion R2-KT
Marvel Legends Stan Lee
Marvel Legends She-Hulk

I have also heard that the DCSH Man-Bat is a SDCC exclusive as well. I need to double check on that though.

Prof. Chaos from the South Park line is also a SDCC exclusive.

Still no word for what SOTA's exclusive will be.

On other SOTA news though. Darkstalkers has been delayed to DECEMBER. That is really weak. I have been waiting for these figures for a couple of years now.

An exclusive "Albino Deco" variant of the Man-Bat will be the exclusive. The brown version is still headed for retail.

They'll also have:
-Sheyra/GL/Ray JLU 3-pack
-some Naruto figures
-A "tech-suit" Mr.Freeze that has yet to be revealed.

Well if you've been waiting a couple years 7 months should be nothing...

(but seriously, WTF... I'm also gonna be sooo pissed when after years and months of waiting the line dies with only Raptor and Demitri made... I know, I shouldn't say negative things, but 'new' SOTA's been fucking up a lot lately and as much as I want to pretend the entire cast of SF and DS is on it's way I'm pretty sure Revolution and DS Waves 1 are the last we'll see of either.)

If that site is accurate this wave seems kind of half and half to me.

Punisher will probably be a shrunken down Icons punisher. I really don't care too much about the first appearance Daredevil and Storm. I might have cared more about the Storm if we also got a First Appearance Sunfire to help and complete the Giant Sized X-Men line up. Nova is okay and so is Tigra. I really want the Silver Samurai to go with my MvC2 collection. If only we could get Shuma Gorath and Marrow.

The Holocaust build-a-figure is a let down. I could name a dozen characters who are within the height range of the current BAF and would be cooler. Eg, Nimrod and Windego

Here are some Icons 4 pictures

Cyclops looks okay, but Magento's head is off.

I would be upset if Dan became the SDCC exclusive. But Blue? You would think green would be the choice for a variant. I wonder if the factory messed up again and it was supposed to be blue,

It appears that there will be pink version of the Felicia statue and they will be showing off Dee and Donovan statues.

This news coupled with the announcement that accessories will be taken away from Darkstalkers lowering some of the hype I usually get from SOTA around SDCC. The new Street Fighter figures better be damn good or I will lose a lot of interest in SOTA.

Street Fighter Revolution

They seem legit, but perhaps really old. The more muscular look of Honda is a compromise I am willing to deal with for poseability, but the face seems off. Hopefully Zangief's head is bigger in the final figure and toe articulation is added as well as shin swivel.

Castlevania line up art with accessories.

I read on one board that the top of the Succubus will come off, but I don't know if that is true. Very nice job by NECA on accessory choices though. I hope that Simon and Alucard have hands to hold all of that. It would be nice to see NECA to try their hand at the Build-A-Figure craze right now and get some of the larger(but not supersize) bad guys made.

Hey, thanks for the update and the comparisons. It's too bad about the loose build of the new figures. I don't really mind the bulkiness though, as long as it's consistent with the other characters, which it looks to be. I think everyone is just bulkier in the new series, kinda like SF Alpha Bengus art.

Also, am I the only person that thinks the new heads for Ken and Ryu look infinitely better than the old ones?

Looks good, the pose looks like he is trying to hitch a ride though.

Mattel gets the rights to the whole DC Universe

So DC Superheroes might actually have DC heroes other than Batman and Superman. I just hope that they get their case ratios sorted out.

Although I am interested in some of the DC Universe, I don't think I would get some of the really obscure characters. I think it would be best to do a 4-5 figure wave centered around one hero and then move to the next. They could of course get a couple of waves out of the Green Lantern.

Legendary Comic Book Heroes is out

But apparently its only in Denver, CO for the mean time. I don't know if I will get all of them. Maybe a Savage Dragon or Judge Dredd if I see one.

The figures look pretty nice. I wish Hasbro would put some more effort into the paints though then these figures would be flawless. That new World War Hulk puts the Hasbro ML1 Hulk to shame.

That message also appears on the Raptor page, so it would seem that only a total of 533 figures have been pre-ordered of BOTH these figures.

The Hulk figures look great, I'm totally sold on McG Hulk, Son of Hulk, Red King, and Valkeri (all for customs, but still)

still waiting for them to make a decent Dr.Strange though...

At this point: F**k Darkstalkers.

Seriously new SOTA just focus on completeing the cast of Street Fighter have your sculpts and factories work on more SF figures instead of DS figures, the Revolution figures look great and you if you keep salting the line with (IN SCALE) redos Everyone will love you again. Darkstalkers is a lost cause... old SOTA couldn't save it, there's no way in hell you can.

SOTA SDCC exclusives

Some new ones such as Dee and Demitri mini-busts and the Evil Ryu Statue.

Is it me or do SOTA's sculpts look really rough lately? For example, Dee's face and hair. It looks like there is a chip on the strand of hair on the right side of Dee face.

Goro SDCC Exclusive

Pretty average for a Jazwares figure, but that isn't saying much.


Legendary Comic Book Heroes is out. I got myself a Savage Dragon and Judge Dredd. They are pretty nice figures. I was shocked to seem them on an end cap as no Marvel Legends wave were ever on end caps. It feels weird only getting a couple of figures from a BAF wave, but that is just money saved.

Judge Death from wave 2 seems to be shipping with wave 1 for some reason along with his translucent variant. Too bad it wasn't Marv that they shipped early.

Both of these are old news... I bet Dee becomes popular with customizers once the DS line goes belly up and people want to make Donovan (I'm hoping Black Arachnis Castings makes a copy in that case, since it'd not worth $25)

Goro will be a TRU exclusive later this year with a new head sculpt, it's better to wait to get him then.

.... I haven't found any legendary comicbook hero figures yet -__- I needs the Dragon to bulid Terry Bogard dammit!!

"Early SDCC photos with Marvel Legends *Update" , posted Thu 26 Jul 08:51:post reply

[url=http://thecomiccrypt.com/photos/displayimage.php?album=10&pos=8 ] Need to register to view pics

Show Blackbolt, Bradstreet Punisher, First Appearance Daredevil and you can see the back of a Black Queen figure.

The Brood Queen is disappointingly small and I doubt it will have the level of paint that they are showing off.

There are a couple of new Icons with Phoenix and Nightcrawler.

Promotional images

Marvel Legends Series 4

Hurray! Only 6 figures to collect.

I am surprised they are doing another Beast so soon. X3 Beast was going nowhere, but I know Astonishing Beast is a highly requested figure and will finish up the Astonishing line, right?

Fantastic 4 Wave

Hurray for green Speedo Namor, but back to another 8 figure wave.

They already had a Demitri figure/mini-bust made so all they had to do was sculpt a new head

To be surprised new SOTA made a Dee figure when they thought Akuma's body would work just fine for Dan would be like being shocked Capcom reuses spirtes themselves.

... so who else is in Revolutions Wave 2 aside from Alex?

Galleries

SOTA's section has Zangief(although not complete, looks pretty good), new Nightmare of Lovecraft, and Darkstalker pics.

Under NECA's gallery you will find Castlevania painted protos. Overall they look pretty good.

Edit: Found 'em! Savage Dragon (for Terry fodder), Madman (for Skullomania fodder with bonus Rock Howard figure), and Witchblade (for uh, being Witchblade... I don't destory *every* thing I buy, really) and with a little work Pitts completed Torso really improves Icons Hulk!

Plastic's MUCH nicer then I expected for a Marvel Toys Figure, they feel like Hasbro ML figures, good joints, not flismy... I'm gonna have to grab a second Savage Dragon to make Cody... can't wait for that Conan 2-pack and Marv either.

I just heard from a friend of mine at SDCC that someone is making a new toyline based off of Katsuya Terada's designs. My friend isn't much into action figures or Terada, so he didn't have very specific details for me, but from what i gathered, it sounded like it was going to be a line of figures based off of characters Terada drew in Rakugaking.

Has anyone else got any info on this? Because this is a dream come true for me.

SDCC was pretty interesting this year.

Marvel Legends seems to have a lot of characters coming out. I wish the rumor of Silver Samurai was true though.

The Wal-Mart 2-packs, although mostly repaints with new heards, fill certain character voids.

I am not interested in series 3 of LCBH except for maybe that Conan, but they are still fine sculpts.

DC Universe Classics may be heading in the right direction with the BAFs and varied character selection. They better get their case ratios sorted out though. I only saw blue Supergirl once and thankfully I picked her up as I haven't seen her since.

SOTA toys is okay, but could use some work. Jedah is looking very good I would like to see the forearm hand hands thinned out a bit though.

Marvel Legends Spiral

Looks damn good, hopefully the finished figure isn't too far off.

Now if we could just get Shuma-Gorath.

Marvel Legends series 3 has started to come out around here. It's okay, but not great. I still need Bucky and Marvel Girl.

The NECA Castlevania line is slowly coming out now. There are some pics Here

They look okay, but I am not as hyped about them as I used to be.

"other things" , posted Wed 12 Dec 00:55:post reply

Revlotech Fist of the North Star

If I can get them at a good price I might pick them up. Revlotech figures seem to be priced $5 more than I am willing to pay for a figure on a 5 inch scale.

NECA is making comic TMNT figures

Apparently these are in a 6" scale which is surprising considering NECA has always done 7". I hope my hype for these figures doesn't die down like with Castlevania.

Iron Man movie figs

Look good. Definitely better than the FF4 and Spider-Man 3 movie figs.

Apparently Sunfire won that poll

Hopefully Silver Samurai will show up in 2008.

I recently got the Master Piece Starscream figure which is a Walmart exclusive. Its a great figure and has a lot of detail. It makes me want to import Master Piece Megatron now.

Samples of the next Street Fighter

Unfortunately they aren't coming out until May '08.

It will be over 2 years since we got Round 4 with Akuma.

It have been over 2 years but at least with SF4 hype buliding the line could be popular again... as it stood I'm sure without SF 4 and having released all the major characters from SF2 the line would have died last year.

... I don't care what people say in the SF4 thread, if the game doesn't TOTALLY suck it'll bring causal fans back to SF and that will probably boast sales for the toy-line, and then I can get EVERY character in figure form.

That WOULD be nice. The figs look decent with the exception of the fact that they put Rainbow Mika on a diet apparently. [heads over to Action-Figure.com to complain about skinny Mika]

Hey Mang, have you played with a Revoltech in person? I was hesitant to get them at first, but for some reason the moment you take them out of the box they become magical! They're one of the few toy lines that you actually want to play with instead of just stare at.

They're by far the most dynamically poseable toys out there. I really recommend them! (just a warning though, they are addictive once you get into them).

I'm doing some decorating (well, looking for curios for a shelf at any rate...) and am interested in some sort of figure or whatnot. I like some of the designer toys one sees in art magazines (essentially they're just weird arse figures) but really have no idea of a reputable place to buy such things.

Is anyone here into the art/designer toy scene? If so, do you have any websites you'd recommend?

have you tried Kid Robot's web-site (www.kidrobot.com)?

They're one of the best at designer vinyls and have got some funky stuff right now (Yo Gabba Gabba figures AND cheap Gorillaz sets)
