My S.H.MonsterArts Alien Warrior review is up at CollectionDX

poe-ghostal-shmonsterarts-alien-review-collectiondx-4

This has to be one of the busiest weekends ever for PGPoA. Usually I take weekends off. And I even skipped some news, like the new Jetfire and Unnamed One leaks.

Anyway, my review of the S.H.MonsterArts Alien Warrior from Alien vs. Predator has been posted on CollectionDX. (The reason it’s up over there is because it was a sample provided by Bluefin via my CDX connections, and part of my agreement with CDX is that any samples I get from their connections I review over there.)

Short version: great sculpt, fantastic articulation, joints are a little loose, figure is a tad on the small side, possibly my favorite Alien toy of all time.

MAFEX 6″ Star Wars?

Oh good lord. Are MAFEX 6″ Star Wars figures coming?

While I love Star Wars Black, if the first figure is Vader or Boba Fett, I don’t see how I can possibly not get it.

Funko Legacy Game of Thrones Revealed (via eBay)

UPDATE: Looks like these may be already on shelves at retail! Check your local Barnes and Noble!

Trust old eBay to provide us with the first photos of Funko’s 6″, super-articulated Game of Thrones figures. These were going to be revealed in about a week anyway, so really they did a pretty good job of hiding them until the last minute. These should hit stores within a month or two (maybe even sooner). The auction states that Tyrion Lannister is also part of the wave, but not available for sale.

I think they look pretty good. The likenesses aren’t perfect, but they’re as good as SWB 6″. This makes me even more excited for Firefly.

What do you think?

(Thanks to Preternia for the heads-up.)
