Featuring Cyclops, Beast, Jubilee, and Wolverine so far, these flat-colored figures bring that iconic show from the screen to real life. I really love the color choice here and lack of shading as it fits with the style of the original quite well and I really love that these are all quite whimsical as well. My personal favorite is Beast and his suave look, but all four are quite great, and at about $40 a figure, these are quite affordable too. Who do you want to see added to the line? Let us know in the comments!</p>

  • <p><a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/?attachment_id=83727" rel="attachment wp-att-83727"></a></p> <p>One of my favorite statue lines has been Erik Sosa’s X-Men Fine Arts statues, which have slowly been coming out over the last few years, so I was quite happy to see that the line is still going strong with the addition of Storm! The dynamic pose and flowing cape fit the character perfectly and I really love that the mohawk second head is included as an option, despite not being really comic accurate (but who cares when it looks good?). Also of note, both earrings will be there in the final figure on the mohawk head, one was broken in transit. That said, all around, this is one big, bold, and awesome statue and honestly, one of my favorites of Storm. Now to hope for more mutants to come after!</p>

  • <p><a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/?attachment_id=83713" rel="attachment wp-att-83713"></a></p> <p>Well, this was an unexpected, yet pleasant addition today at Toy Fair! Following up on the Batman from the <em>Batman: The Animated Series</em> ArtFX+, we’re now getting Harley Quinn and The Joker as well! I really love how the Harley here captures her more playful side from the show as opposed to the hyper sexualized versions we’ve been getting lately due to <em>Suicide Squad</em>, and The Joker has his iconic purple suit and massive grin, which I will always love in any form. The pair are both quite nice looking and are, honestly, must haves for any fans of the iconic show.</p>

I’m a huge Batman fan. I wrote a paper in college about Batman (and the ethics of killing the Joker). But I gotta admit, I just don’t love this design! It’s the chubby little ears, I think. And how mecha he looks. I’m more of a fan of Good Smile’s <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/nendoroid-batman-is-the-knight" target="_blank">original Batman Nendoroid</a>, who was just too precious. But even I have to admit that this design looks freaking adorable as a Nendo. It’s, like, bonus chubby. Way too chubs for me to take Batfleck seriously. He’s just so precious! I hope he comes with an unmasked face so I can make a custom <em>Gone Girl</em> Nendo.</p>
