memocromatico replied to JayC's topic in 2019 New York Toy FairAll those beautiful MCU figures. I think we might start getting to the point where it's like Star Wars and anybody in the movies will get a figure in due time, if Luis, Peggy and MJ are any indication of it. Imagine a Stan Lee Cameo Boxset for an exclusive. I was disappointed with the lack of 6" JP figures from Mattel, the not showing of the Inklings (or lack of pictures ANYWHERE) from Figma, and that only one Ranger caught my interest.
My guess we get the standard Nord look that's always shown and for Fallout we get the standard Vault jumpsuit guy and Power Armor and depending on the license we get some of the companions/NPCs. I love the Fallout and Elder Scrolls games so I'm curious about where this goes.
Belmont13 replied to Outsiders's topic in Entertainment NewsI really liked his Dawn of the Dead remake so think this will be good, I generally like his work, his take on DC didn't do it for me but other than that he can do good work.
Belmont13 replied to JayC's topic in 2019 New York Toy FairPretty much Hasbro and Marvel Legends was it for me, I have a few gripes here and there but nothing that truly disappointed me.
JayC posted a topic in Action Figure NewsWe first saw it last weekend at Toy Fair and now Kotobukiya has released official images and info for their upcoming G.I. Joe A Real American Hero Scarlett Bishoujo statue. The world’s first series of action figures created by Hasbro, G.I. Joe follows a group of heroes in their fight against Cobra, an evil organization plotting to take over the world. In this new line of 1/7 scale statues, the colorful characters of G.I. JOE are reborn as Kotobukiya’s BISHOUJO! The first character to join the series is an agent from the global elite special unit known as the G.I. JOE team, Scarlett! The statue is based on original art by Shunya Yamashita, which was specially created as concept art for the BISHOUJO statue! A counter-intelligence expert who protects her allies from enemy schemes, Scarlett is proficient with a variety of weapons. Scarlett’s signature red hair and two-piece bodysuit are recreated in stunning detail. While remaining faithful to the original G.I. JOE series, Scarlett’s suit has also been upgraded to represent the advanced, high-tech equipment available to the elite G.I. JOE team, as is evident in the suit’s unique and highly detailed texture. Additionally, like the original action figure, Scarlett comes with an XK-1 power crossbow. Created through the power of technology, this high quality digitally sculpted statue leaves no detail untouched thanks to the expert hand of sculptor Takaboku Busujima (BUSUJIMAX). The G.I. JOE BISHOUJO series will continue to grow with an extensive lineup of characters, so stay tuned for more updates! Yo JOE!! Available in August 2019. You can pre-order this now at HobbyLinkJapan.com.
Not really action figure related but what the hell: IDW Publishing is very pleased to announce that industry icon Stan Sakai will bring his critically acclaimed series Usagi Yojimbo to IDW beginning in June. For the first time ever, new monthly Usagi Yojimbo comic books will be published in full color, and IDW will curate a fully-colored graphic novel library of the complete Usagi Yojimbo – all 35 years of its grand storytelling, plus new stories to come! "I'm delighted to work with IDW Publishing on the new Usagi Yojimbo color series. IDW is a creative company that brings a lot of energy, enthusiasm, and excitement to the table. The IDW family includes many beloved characters, including (of course) the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so it is a natural fit," says Stan Sakai. "Fans, please look forward to this coming June as we'll be releasing IDW Usagi Yojimbo #1, action-packed and now fully colored." Welcome to the world of Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo in June with the first thrilling chapter in an all-new three-part story! Set in the Edo period of Japan, this adventure sees Usagi embroiled in a puppet drama where the players are not quite what they seem. Sakai adds, "Bunraku (Japanese puppetry) captures many elements that make the world of Usagi Yojimbo unique: an adventure filled with Japanese culture, folklore, and history. It also features the return of a long-awaited fan favorite character and Yokai (Japanese supernatural creatures). I’d like to thank the readers for their continued support of Usagi, and if you haven't read Usagi before, this is a great place to start." Marking this milestone with a spectacular selection of covers, Usagi Yojimbo #1 includes a main cover by Stan Sakai, plus variants by Daniel Warren Johnson (Murder Falcon), Kevin Eastman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Walt Simonson (Ragnarök, The Mighty Thor). Written and illustrated by Stan Sakai for over thirty years and published in over fourteen countries, Usagi Yojimbo is set in a unique world based on 17th century Japan. Miyamoto Usagi, who once served as the personal bodyguard for a Japanese warlord, now traverses this unique world – a landscape populated by ghosts, dinosaurs, monsters, and warriors of all kinds – as a ronin. In his many exciting adventures, the swordsrabbit hones his skills, saves villages, and often finds himself navigating the delicate affairs of national/political significance. "We’re all ecstatic to have Stan Sakai and Usagi join the IDW family,” says IDW President & Publisher/Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall. “Usagi Yojimbo has been one of the most consistently wonderful comic-book series for decades now, a bright spot in publishing matched only by the consummate skill and professionalism its creator Stan brings to everything he does. It’s a thrill to not only be able to publish new Usagi comics but also present them all in an all-new, vibrantly colored way." Follow IDW on social media for the latest updates on new Usagi Yojimbo comic books and graphic novels. Preorder Usagi Yojimbo #1 through your local comic shop in April, or visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you. Image

Shieldagent7 replied to JayC's topic in Action Figure NewsI posted his contest to Facebook. When I first started collecting Marvel Legends over a decade ago, I never dreamed we would get to characters like Rock Python and Living Lazer. We are living in a golden age of action figures.
FASVB replied to JayC's topic in Action Figure NewsCan't wait for this. Didn't get the SHF one and I'm glad I waited. I only have the first SHF. Will not sell it tho. Will keep both. And also get the future DST release. The only thing I'm missing is the bamboo stick.
They are kind of an indie group so when stuff is ready it ll be available. We usually get a date but its sometimes not that far from release and sometimes its like 6 months before release. Pretty random really.
JayC posted a topic in Action Figure NewsA Diamond Select Toys release! This 7-inch scale action figure of Bruce Lee features some of the most dynamic articulation ever in a Select figure! Wearing his most famous outfit, the martial arts master sports 21 points of articulation, allowing him to strike the most action-packed poses, and includes an interchangeable head, six interchangeable hands and fists, as well as nunchuks and spinning nunchuks. Designed by Yuri Tming and sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios!

As far as the non-movie waves go I’ve seen and picked up up to the Clayface wave, but it’s spotty at best with the stores around here hardly getting any new cases coming in and then when they do arrive it’s a “blink and you missed it”. Personally I think Mattel going to realize (presuming they haven’t already) that there’s no way they are going to be able to push out everything they’ve shown to actual retain in time and thus some of these will probably end up as an SDCC packout release.
Colt90 replied to JayC's topic in Action Figure NewsI'm a huge Crash Bandicoot fan, but it really feels like they are milking the franchise with this many Crash figures in a row. The N.Cortex and Coco will be a nice addition to the collection though.

Huge fan of their MK stuff. Have Baraka on pre-order. Do we know what the next release will be in that line after him? Also kind of a disappointment not to see the MK female ninjas this at NYTF this year.
