  • Wonder Festival is less than a week away, and you know what that means–teaser time! I feel like every year these pop up sooner and sooner. It used to start on Wednesday and Thursday, now we get them at the beginning of the week! Well,the better to spread ’em out, I guess. First up is Kotobukiya with 4 teasers. Two are of figures we already knew about: the protagonist from Persona 5 and RyuuuZU from Clockwork Planet. Then we have two new ones! There’s an ArtFX+ of Arrow (from the show, not the comics) and a new Lancer from Fate/Grand Order. Which is basically Caster Extra in a swimsuit? I’ll be honest, I have not the faintest clue what is going on with Fate anymore. [UPDATE] We have some teaser artwork for the Ms Marvel Bishoujo! This will be on display at Toy Fair (which we will be covering in person!), but might also make a WF appearance. [UPDATE 2] We also have Bishoujo Katana’s teaser! Thanks Marissa~ [via Kotobukiya]

  • We’ve already taken a look at Kidrobot’s big new license announcements from Toy Fair: DC, Snoop Dogg, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Megaman. But (can you guess what I’m going to say next?) that’s not all they had on display! Because if it was, it’d be the world’s tiniest booth. They also had their Marvel Labbits and minifigures, Street Fighter figures, the ever-expanding Simpsons line along with its companions Futurama, Family Guy, and South Park.┬áThen we’ve got Labbits, and more Labbits. Given how focused they seem to be on cartoons, I expect announcements for American Dad and Archer figures any day now. American cartoon figures I’d actually get excited about: Samurai Jack. Hint hint, Kidrobot!

  • Guys. GUYS. I am so excited right now I don’t even. IT’S HAPPENING. I think I’m hyperventilating, so if you don’t hear from me in the next few hours assume I died from excitement. Because there are Fringe action figures. In 1/6 scale. From Art Storm. In crazy detail. LOOK AT THAT WALTER. Just… look at him. Look with your special eyes! He’s perfect. He better come with licorice (and LSD). Oh also there’s Peter but whatever IT’S FRIGGIN WALTER ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh [via Akibahobby]

    This Walter Bishop Action Figure Is A Thing That Is Real

  • We’ve already shown you Sideshow’s statues from Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Terminator, Alien and Predator, G.I. Joe, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but that’s not all that was on hand at San Diego Comic Con. Classic animated and live action movies were also well represented from Indiana Jones to Captain Hook from Peter Pan. Captain Hook was one notable figure as the crocodile that is part of this statue is so well executed and a nice touch to an already great looking piece. In a similar vein to this was the Jessica Rabbit statue, which also comes with a penguin butler, but Jessica’s super unrealistic proportions have always creeped me out and seeing them in three dimensions only makes things worse. Last, but not least, was the announcement of Molotov Cocktease and Brock Samson from The Venture Bros., who will surely be quite popular. Also, now that Sideshow has picked up a license from Adult Swim, I’d love to see more, especially the Aqua Teen Hunger Force crew. What TV or movie characters would you like to see Sideshow pick up and produce?

  • Confession: I’ve always been more of an Angel fan than a Buffy fan. With that dirty little secret out of the way, I’ll admit that I still do love Buffy. As such, I’ve been interested in picking up figures from the series, but it’s slim pickings on the market. Sideshow picked up the license a while back, and has been putting out figures at a slow but steady pace–first Buffy, then Willow and Faith, and at SDCC they showed of a brand-new Spike statue! As much as I want to like these, I feel like something is just ever so slightly off. The poses are great, and the body sculpts are spot-on. But the faces just don’t look like the actors! It’s enough of an issue to keep me from spending a large chunk of money on them, but it seems like the previous releases are quite popular. Be sure to check them all out in the gallery below to decide for yourself!

  • If there’s one company you can trust to churn out a ton of new, limited figures for SDCC, it’s Kidrobot. The lines for their exclusive 8″ Dunny started almost 6 hours before it was sold! So expectations were pretty high for this year, even though some of their pieces will be available after the show. They had their usual 8″ exclusive, and this year it was another MAD design, the Zombie Robber in a sleek black and GID colorway. They also had the first colorway of Jesse Hernandez’ El Bandito Muerto, and a pretty awesome custom colorway as well. The Beast Brother’s Kid Olaf was also for sale, along with one of Shawnimal’s adorable plush ninjas. The rest of their releases were a bit different, and based on licensed properties instead of original designs. They had their Street Fighter miniseries with an exclusive Evil Ryu and a Dead Kenny and Mysterion that are part of their new South Park set. Hidden among all of this was a custom by the Beast Brothers of their design from Azteca II, in 8″ form. The sign said ‘Coming Soon’ so perhaps we are FINALLY going to get a Beast Brothers 8″? It is probably just an announcement for a custom release in their online store, but god knows they’ve been working hard enough to deserve it!
