KOTOBUKIYA REVEALS AT NYCC

Kotobukiya has a bevy of freshness on display at their booth (#1654) including never-before-seen sculpts and painted pieces. They announced even more at their panel yesterday. Highlights included a concept art for a new line of X-Men statues (including a siiiick looking piece featuring Magik). They also announced that they’re working on a Red Hood piece which erupted the audience into uproarious applause, but not nearly as uproarious as the final reveal of an upcoming statue featuring Tali from Mass Effect as part of the fan favorite Bishojou line.

The company promises more reveals at NY Toy Fair in Februrary 2015. We’ll keep you posted.

FINN AND JAKE MECH BY KODYKOALA

From the artist:

What time is??? It’s adventure time!!! I am a huge fan of adventure time, and I thought I would make a few customs based on the show. My first is this Jake Suit 2.0. I know in the cartoon, the original Jake suit is a beefy body suit, but I wanted to do something a little more futuristic. Jake can turn into a car, and bulldozer, so why not a mech suit.

I used a Playschool Lex Luthor Battle suit, and a McDonald’s Finn and Jake to put this together. I had to smooth out some of the details of the original Mech to make it fit more with the cartoon.

1966 LEGO Batman Project

Sam Gras writes in to us:

Hello, My name is Sam. I’m a Father, Cosplayer, and all around geek. My Four year old daughter is obsessed with Batman and Robin and asked me to make her a LEGO Batmobile that would fit both characters. I made her the iconic 1966 version. The build is on the LEGOIdeas website and has been in the top projects consistently every week. We currently have over 4,000 supporters.

With your help, we can reach our goal of 10K supporters and LEGO will consider producing the set. Below is a link to the build and my Facebook page. Please consider writing an article about the build, this would make an awesome little girl and her father very happy.

This is super rad and I really want those 60’s Batman and Robin figs. Head over to LEGO Ideas to support this project NOW!
