Way back at NYCC we showed you a whole bunch of new figures from ESCToy set to be released over the next year or so and Zone 6 was one of those pieces. This post-apocalyptic hyper-detailed piece features what appears to be some sort of skeleton warrior, Zone 6, and his minion, the Nasty Companion. I love the mix of the eastern and western design styles in this piece and if you do too, you can head on over to the ESCToy store and add this pair to your collection for $150. Act fast though, there’s only 10 of these guys out there to terrorize your collection!
As you know, we here at Plastikitty are big fans of Argonaut Resins’ Tuttz figures and today we get to bring some new news regarding these plasticine felines. Artist Adam Pratt, whose customs showed up at Argonaut Resins’ table at Toy Fair, has joined Argonaut Resins’ creative team full time and he’s kicking things off with a few new customs!
First up, as seen in the header is the Armored Golem MK1 8″ Tuttz custom which features metallic paint and battle-worn accents. Next up is the second 8″ Tuttz, the Sekhmet Tuttz, who first showed up back at Toy Fair and now has received an awesome resin base. Rounding out the releases are two more mini Tuttz in the Tuttz Beginnings series, which are quite different from the first releases.
Considering I own the Beginnings mini Tuttz that already went up, I’m most certainly a fan of all of these! I’ve been in love with the Sekhmet Tuttz since we first saw it and the new resin base addition is just gorgeous. The Armored Golem is also stunning with its rivet work and it’s sure to make someone very happy. If you want to add one of these Tuttz to your collection, they’ll all be up on Tuesday, the 14th, at 10 PM EST on the Argonaut Resins webstore.
Well, if you haven’t heard by now, Daft Punk is back and has a new album (that’s 75 minutes long nonetheless) coming out May 21st called Random Access Memories. But, if you have, and are like me and have been listening to that 15 second snippet on the website on loop for days now, you’ll be super excited to find out that Bandai is making S.H. Figuarts of the two funky robots themselves. Thomas and Guy-Man come in at around 15cm tall each and will feature metallic paint accents as well as complete poseability.
I’m super excited for this announcement and, while they don’t look as great as the Real Action Heroes, they’ll certainly be much more affordable. Now to just sit and keep looping that song until May 21st and then looping the album til November while waiting for these little guys to come out because, let’s face it, you just can’t have enough Daft Punk in your life!

The highlight of our admittedly massive toy collection is undoubtedly our Mini Tuttz display, so of course we gravitated right towards Argonaut Resins’ booth at Toy Fair! Which really wasn’t hard, seeing as he has a spot right between the elevators we tend to come down. There were, of course, many Tuttz on display in every size–Mini, 6.5″ and the larger 8′!
But what got our attention is the Mini Hound sculpt, currently a work in progress but looking phenomenal so far. I really can’t wait to have a whole army of these little guys watching over our kitty herd. Check them all out in the gallery, along with some really rockin’ customs that should be going up for order soon!
Well, we’ve already shown you a lot of new Play Arts Kai announcements from Square-Enix ranging from the new DC Universe line to Final Fantasy VII Advent Children pieces and Street Fighter characters as well, but there were a lot of other Play Arts Kai tossed in the mix too. The Halo 4 Play Arts Kai were on display in full force and ready for action, but there were also lots of prototypes too. Leon S. Kennedy and Helena Harper from Resident Evil 6 were on hand along with Tom “Preacher” from Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Isaac Clarke from Dead Space 3. Major Henry Varro from Starship Troopers Invasion was also on hand, but the coolest new figure had to be Zetman, who was just simply stunning. There were also a few chibi Final Fantasy figures on display, so be sure to check it all out in the gallery.
Street Fighter isn’t the only fighting game series that Square-Enix likes to make Play Arts Kai of, they’re also quite fond of the Tekken franchise as well. It was no surprise then to see Tekken fighters on hand at Toy Fair via Play Arts Kai figures of Jun Kazama and Kazuya Mishima from Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Jun and Kazuya both look a tad clunky compared to other releases in the line and only come with different sets of hands, but if you want to add them to your collection, you can do so in April when both will be released for $64.99.
The Street Fighter universe has seen quite a few Play Arts Kai releases already, but considering how many characters there are, it’s no surprise to see four new additions to the cast of fighters that received the action figure treatment. Shown off at Toy Fair were Sakura, Ibuki, Ken, and Guile all in their designs from Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. I’m surprised at how well the cloth materials came out on Ibuki and Sakura despite being hard plastic and Ken and Guile come with some amazing clear plastic accessories that really add to the atmosphere. Each figure also has an alternate face as well as some other alternate parts and the line will begin being released in May with Guile and Ibuki at $69.99 each.
Metal Gear Solid seems to be a franchise with a never-ending amount of characters that lend themselves to Square-Enix’s Play Arts Kai line, and the offerings at Toy Fair this year were no different. It seems like every time I go to a convention there’s two or more new Metal Gear Solid pieces and, well, that’s what happened here this year with Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2, and Liquid Snake from Metal Gear Solid. Also on hand was the Metal Gear Solid Rising Revengance Raiden, who will be coming out in April for $69.99 and is looking quite badass. The amount of detail on Raiden and Liquid Snake looks quite nice, so for fans of the series, these are most certainly welcomed additions to an already great line.
We already showed you a good chunk of what Kidrobot had on hand at Toy Fair, but one other thing being displayed was the new Huck Gee Post Apocalypse Dunny Series. Lots of these little guys were on hand, and, quite honestly I had to keep reminding myself I wasn’t looking at the Gold Life series; the re-use of pieces and sculpts is a tad ridiculous and makes this feel like one of the most unoriginal Dunny releases yet. Yes, there are a few gems in the series such as the futuristic geisha and the robots, but on the whole, the series feels like it’s been released for ages (mainly because some of these have, just in different colorways). Hit the jump to take a closer look at this new series that will be dropping at the end of the month and ponder as to what most of these remotely have to do with a post apocalyptic world.
