Sweet Holy Moses, they’re making the bunny rabbit.
Well, here’s some news that is both unexpected and totally expected! George R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series… wait, no, now it’s officially all named after the first book… Martin’s Game of Thrones series is getting toys! So, what do you think? Will they come with removable clothing? Or optional gore effects? Or maybe they’ll be really great figures, the best in your collection, and you’ll love them… and then they will all break.
The news comes from Kevin Griffin:
And on that note, I leave you with this
Well, Mattel had already given this one away months ago by previewing his sword, but it’s nice to see confirmation! Strangely, even though they put the figure out, the only pics posted were on people’s private Facebook pages and the like. But now it’s Pixel Dan to the rescue! Follow that link to see Sea Hawk, the pirate who never robs or pillages.
No new MonsterArts yet, unless you count the Alien and Predator that’ve been leaked (Is there any company not doing those yet?). But as you can see, they have previewed their next Figuarts Dragon Ball figures – the androids! You know, instead of going with Cell or Buu or another of Frieza’s forms… we get a pair of unassuming teens. Well, Krillin for the Win, anyway. You can see more at CollectionDX.
A little bird gave me this info. Okay, a raven. A ghostly raven. The type of raven that Edgar Allen Poe would write about, only Ghostly in all details.
So here are a few little leaks:
From MU Collector Club:
Likewise, apparently Marvel universe is going to be folded into only movie tie-in lines, too. If this is true – and I won’t say for certain until a Hasbro rep says it – then it’s not a terrible surprise, since MU’s distribution has been crazy-awful and haphazard lately. So, now what? Will the movie figures all have 5 POA, or will they be MU-quality? And if marvel Legends is going down, too, what will this do to the quality of the line? Regardless, if it is being cancelled, it’s had a surprisingly good run – and even a revival! So I can’t claim that ML is getting killed off too soon, but… I don’t know. It feels sad, like the end of an era. Marvel Legends was really what championed the 6″ scale into the massive juggernaut it is today, so seeing it go is very sad.
First off, I wanna thank everybody who’s helped me here by pointing out things I’ve missed or gotten wrong. You’re lifesavers!
Anyway, it’s not precisely SDCC news, but the Four Horsemen have clearly brought their Ravens to the con, if you want another look at them. If you like the birds, go and back them on Kickstarter – as of right now, it’s about $1,000 away from the owl.
The reveals and previews keep coming! Well, of course, I doubt that anybody showed off everything they have on Preview Night. But let’s take a look at some other companies, shall we?

So, is this it? Legendary Pictures’s new American Godzilla? Or is this just a take on the classic Japanese design? It looks like it’s the real thing for the new movie, folks… I’m a little concerned because it looks almost too accurate for Hollywood, but the nerdy landscape has changed a lot since 1998, and movie studios seem to recognize the value of pandering.
So, what do you think? Good, bad, GINO, or probably not the real thing at all?
Well, it looks like we’re getting more than just an Aliens Line coming up…
