From the moment that Good Smile Company & Max Factory announced that they would be working on The Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man, I thought it was a pretty weird turn of events. But after the undeniable popularity of Nendoroids Iron Man and Spider-Man, it’s clear that there is no stopping this money train any time soon! At last Winter WonFest most of the figmas were sculpted, and it seems we are getting our first painted release. No surprise, it’s Spidey from The Amazing Spider-Man! We also have a closer look at the other sculpts.
He looks good, though a little bit like a contortionist. Definitely more natural than the Nendoroid! We also have a new announcement that is at least kind of related. 3A is continuing their collaboration with a super awkward looking Invincible Iron Man. Am I the only one experiencing Avengers overdose?

Well, we knew they were coming last WonFest and now, here they are! Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor are all rendered in their Avengers movie outfits and are looking quite nice, but that’s not that hard when Max Factory is on the task instead of the US action figure makers. For some reason, Hawkeye and Black Widow are still missing (presumably because no one really gives a damn about either according to Marvel, which couldn’t be further from the truth) and to make things even stranger, Spider-Man is just kind of hanging out in the top corner.
I personally like Spider-Man the best out of the bunch, but that probably has to do with the fact that I like him way more than any of the Avengers members. Then again, it could also be that his joints look natural unlike, say, the Hulk, who apparently doesn’t have elbows. No word yet on pricing or a release date as the info is too small to discern from this lone picture that we have, but considering these aren’t even painted yet, I’d expect a bit more of a wait on them all.

December was (obviously) the last month of 2012, and boy was it a doozy. Even with the massive amount of delays that came late in the year it was just totally jam-packed with releases. In fact, this might actually be our biggest month of orders… ever. Well, maybe excluding July of 2010, where we had an entire wall of loot from SDCC. But in terms of imports, yeah, it’s a bit overwhelming! So hit the jump to check out all the goodies.

Bad Applez Inc., the dynamic duo of Nemo and OsirisOrion, who masterfully sculpt and paint, decided to bring some goodies to NYCC this year. The duo, who have been working together for about a year now, and both of whom are from the New York area, decided to bring it big and have lots of tie ins with comics and New York in general. From the amazing skulls in the header of Batman, the Joker, Spider-Man, and others, to more traditional pieces like a Munny with an apple for its head (which sadly sold as I was taking these shots and didn’t get to take a picture of it), there was something for everyone on hand.
The gorgeous skulls in the header also came in large size pieces (about 5″ or so), and smaller charm sized pieces and I really can’t wait to see more in that line. NYCC also saw the release of their hand sculpted and resin cast pieces called the Dust Mitez, which are, admittedly, quite adorable. Definitely give the gallery below a look through and be sure to keep an eye on these guys over the months and years to come as they produce some amazing stuff!

I think the unanimous thought on the announcement of Nendoroid Spider-Man was “huh?” It seems like a very odd choice for the line, but the first glimpse of him we got painted looked good. Now we’re getting a full reveal and I think my thoughts still remain at “huh?” It’s a cool idea, but he’s been added to the “Super Moveable”/”Full Action” line (or as Mikatan calls it the “Edition Series”), so there are a ton of joints. And since his design is really sleek, they stand out a lot. Added to the chubby proportions and it seems very odd.
He doesn’t come with that much either, just the cool city diorama we saw previously and some webs. Then again, there’s not really a lot they can do with the character. This “Hero’s Edition” is based on the new movie look, and I think the suit does look good, though overall I am still not sold on this piece. He’ll be going up for order next week, and hopefully the promo shots show us a little more!

In a surprise move, Good Smile Company announced a Nendoroid of Spider-Man at NicoNico Super Kaigi. They seem to be doing a lot more non-human Nendoroids recently like Jack Frost, Sonic, and Teddie, but having an American comic hero in the mix seemed like an odd but original idea. We’ve had no news on him since, but apparently whoever uploaded this month’s magazine scans forgot something very important: Spider-Man has been painted!
He looks great, with a nice sleek paintjob, but the best part is the base. It’s a mini New York street! Definitely a unique accessory, and I can’t wait to see what else he comes with. Perhaps some tiny webs?

Today seems to be the day of unexpected Nendoroids. First, a Nendoroid of Soniko was announced, and now, out of left field, comes Spider-Man, swinging in to my facial expression of, “huh…?” Spider-man here is looking quite chunky in his body sculpt, arms, and legs, but his iconic mask is here in all of its glory, and it’s safe to assume that web-slinging action will come at a later time. It seems like a logical step for this to happen as Good Smile Company has worked with Disney before, and now that Disney owns Marvel it opens up a wide variety of new figures, but I just never expected them to start with Spidey. So far there’s no word on a price or a release date, but I’d expect Peter Parker (or potentially Miles Morales, no one knows yet) to swing into retail shops in December at the earliest, but if Mickey Mouse was any precedent, it could be upwards of a year.

Statues are not really my main area of collecting: in fact, I usually don’t bother with them at all. But sometimes a unique one will catch my eye, and this one certainly does! I was a little surprised by how much I was taken with Kotobukiya’s Spider-Man Fine Arts Statue because, well, I’m not really a Spider-Man statue, but the motion they captured really brings this figure to life! The colors are rich and vibrant and I love the diorama feel to it. He’ll be available in Q3, and there is also going to be a matching Venom. I can’t wait to see the two of them together–it’s going to be one awesome display!

The other day, we showed you the Bruce Wayne and Shadow Predator Hot Toys, which went up on Sideshow’s website yesterday and sold out quickly, but those aren’t all that Hot Toys had on hand at San Diego Comic Con! There were lots of pieces on display from all different movies from Iron Man 2, Tron: Legacy, Spiderman, Avatar, and more. Also on hand were some new figures from the movie Sucker Punch, which seemed to be crowd favorites, and some male movie character favorites in Jack Sparrow and Indiana Jones. That’s not all though; tucked away in another corner of Sideshow’s booth was an announcement of a 1/6th scale Batmobile along with a more traditional Joker! Having just made my first Hot Toys purchase with the limited Bruce Wayne, that Batmobile is definitely tempting (while not the tumbler from the new movies). There’s just so much to choose from that anyone will find something that catches their eye, so hit the gallery and see if there’s anything that you want to add to your collection!

I’ve said previously that I’ve had trouble getting into the US statue scene. While I love when figures are sculpted by really talented people like the Shifflet Brothers, I tend to bump into the same problem over and over again. The work of CS Moore I think perfectly illustrates my issues: the sculpting is, in many ways, fantastic. One look at Angelus is enough to tell you that! But the unrealistic body proportions throw me off.
Don’t get me wrong, I have no problems with big breasts on figures (I mean, I own over 30 figures of Tamaki!), but I do have a problem with gravity-defying boobs. Boobs that wouldn’t be that cleavage-tastic with even the most dedicated underwire bra. But hey, it’s part of the fantasy sculpture scene, and I understand why it’s something people look for. And while it’s definitely not for me, I think there’s still a lot of talent on display here. So hit the jump to check out all the figures CS Moore had on display from Witchblade to Angelus with some Conan the Barbarian in between, and let us know what you think!
