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.
Yes indeedy, those WERE DC Collectibles figures that I misidentified as Mattel. So here, have some New 52 Harley Quinn. Is it just me, or does she kind of look like a juggalo lately?
So, Icon Heroes is now doing their “Can’t afford Castle Grayskull? Well, ours is half the size, half the price!” And Snake Mountain. See? It’s a really nice idea, especially if your budget allows for $100 playsets instead of $300 ones.
Since we’ve now got some better-quality galleries (seriously, do TNI’s people know how to hold a camera?), I can now comment on NECA’s stuff a little better!
Holy wow, that IS the “Lost Predator” with more cyborg gear! And Lost was my favorite of the tribe, so… well! I like the idea. See, Lost’s armor was originally scavenged from a low-budget Terminator knockoff that Stan Winston had worked on, so it’s interesting to see how NECA develops it into its own thing.
I do find it interesting that they’ve extended the line with more filler before reaching the promised AvP figures, but I assume it’s because they’re working on those guys. Will they have a newer, bigger body type? Though there’s one thing I want to mention – NECA, if you ever revisit the Tracker Predator (say, for a cloaked variant), please make those tusks out of flexible rubber that will not snap to pieces in the package. THANK YOU.
Oh yeah, and NECA is now making super-deformed Marshmallowey Star Trek characters done in the style of the Mexican Day of the Dead. It’s like Kirk had a baby with Coraline’s Other Mother.
Now you, too, can have your creepy, eyeless Kirk! he wants your soul.
Anyway, here’s hoping there’ll be stuff from Tamashii Nations soon!
