@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

We wrapped up our New York Comic Con coverage a few days ago, but of course photos weren’t the only thing that came home with me & Stephen from the convention! Loot is one of the main lures for toy fans, and NYCC certainly had exclusives to spare. Seemingly every booth in the Cultyard had several exclusives up for offer, and while we went in planning to only nab a few we ended up with more than we bargained for! So hit the jump to check out our tasty loot haul for NYCC.

Back at San Diego Comic Con, Kotobukiya showed off a whole bunch of new Star Wars ArtFX statues and little by little we’ve been seeing more of them from Darth Maul to Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now, after having seen him painted at New York Comic Con, we have new images of Yoda from The Empire Strikes Back as well as more images of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Yoda comes with two different faces and stands in at about 4 inches tall in a 1/7th scale as a standard ArtFX release and looks utterly stunning. This diorama recreates one of my all time favorite scenes of my childhood flawlessly and is, quite frankly, the best Star Wars figure I have seen to date.
R2-D2 and C-3PO here are a part of the ArtFX+ line and stand in at 1/10th scale and are more poseable than the larger ArtFX figures. R2 and C-3pO come with quite a few extra pieces so that C-3PO can pose with his arm up, R2 can move his legs back, and other things of that sort so that many different poses from the movie can be re-created. If you want to add either of these to the collection, Yoda will be available in June of 2012 and C-3PO and R2-D2 will be available in March and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on any new info on them or other additions to the Star Wars line here on Plastikitty!

The other day we showed you Kotobukiya’s new Jaina Solo Bishoujo figure, but that’s not all that they had on hand in the world of Star Wars! Of course their famous lightsaber chopsticks were out in full force (pun intended) and their R2-D2 and Han Solo in carbonite ice trays were a huge hit again as well. If you’re a fan of these food and drink related Star Wars items and are looking for more then you’re in luck! Announced at the show are four new ice trays: Darth Vader’s head, a Stormtrooper head, an X-Wing, and the Millennium Falcon, all of which are quite impressive looking and contain just as much amazing detail as the first two sets.
Also on hand were lots of the new ArtFX figures from the recently put up for order Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul to the recently released Darth Vader and the soon to be released R2-D2 and C-3PO set. There were also Stormtroopers and Clone Troopers of every type on hand and Yoda, who we last saw at San Diego Comic Con, received a new closed-eyes using-the-force face which looks quite amazing. I love all of the Star Wars pieces that Kotobukiya is producing and the fact that they’re focusing on the older movies as well and can’t wait to see what ArtFX and bishoujo additions we get next so let us know what you’d like to see from Kotobukiya in the comments below!

Earlier in the week we showed you Kotobukiya’s new Star War merchandise from San Diego Comic Con and now we were able to bring you a closer look at some of the pieces that were behind the glass at the display cases at the convention. Both of the new larger scale 1/7th ArtFX statues, Yoda and Obi-Wan are in the gallery as well as the pair of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Yoda’s use of the Force for levitation can be seen in its full glory as well as all of the little details of the Degobah swamp around him. Obi-Wan’s fantastic texture on his robes, which I spoke about previously, is much better seen here, and all of R2-D2 and C-3PO’s parts of their designs are in full view – Kotobukiya really pulled out all the stops here. I can’t wait for Yoda to eventually get painted and for Obi-Wan and the droids to be released as they’re all just so perfectly done; it’s like the characters from the movies walked off the screen and are here in three-dimensions. So what are you waiting for? Check out all of the awesome details of some of the best Star Wars merchandise of all time in the gallery below!

The Star Wars franchise is one of Kotobukiya’s most successful endeavors, so it was no surprise when their Star Wars merchandise was on display in full force at San Diego Comic Con. From the ever popular award winning Lightsaber Chopsticks to ArtFX statues and quirky novelty products like R2-D2 and Han Solo in Carbonite ice trays, there was something for every Star Wars fan.
The ever popular ArtFX line received two major new additions from A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back in the form of Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi in the larger 1/7th scale. Yoda is in his swamp in Degobah using the force to levitate some items, which was pulled off quite well in statue form, and Obi-Wan is looking as badass as ever with his no-nonsense expression on his face and pose that’s ready for battle. The detailing on Obi-Wan Kenobi’s clothing is quite impressive: every single fiber is individually sculpted and is incredibly realistic. Yoda will be available in the 2nd quarter 2012 for an undetermined price and Obi-Wan will be $119.99 with a light up LED Lightsaber in March of 2012. The ArtFX line also received two droid additions with the R2-D2 and C-3PO A New Hope two pack set in 1/10th scale. Both are quite poseable and were made using 3D data, so every single little detail is there on the pair who will make their debut in the 1st quarter 2012. Also being added to the ArtFX line is Darth Maul in a 1/10th scale who will be available in the 2nd quarter 2012 and looks quite amazing.
Those who are fans of the silicone ice trays, have no fear! Following the R2-D2 and Han Solo ice trays, which both sold out their at convention stocks, will be a starship ice tray set featuring the Millennium Falcon and an X-Wing and a Galactic Empire set featuring a standard Stormtrooper helmet and Darth Vader’s iconic helmet. Both of these will be available in the 4th quarter 2011 for $9.99 each and are a steal if you’re looking to make some quirky ice for your party, but can also be used for making chocolates, Jello, and pretty much anything else that can be made in a mold.
Be sure to hit the jump to check out all of the Star Wars items that Kotobukiya had on hand and leave a comment about what you’re glad to see as well as what you’d like to see from Kotobukiya in the future!
