First up was the Pop Culture Shock booth. They didn’t have much on display, but this lifesize Akuma bust was definitely the centerpiece.

Triforce had a buttload of high end (i.e. super expensive) collectibles on hand. Pretty to look at, but insane to pay for unless you have lots and lots and lots of money.

























This Black Mask bust is just a prototype, thus the lack of paint, but even in its uncolored state, you can already tell it’s gonna’ be freaking awesome.









These Tetris pieces actually light up, but they couldn’t get a power supply running to the case for them. They light up when connected, and if you make a row, the lights flicker off just as if the pieces were dissappearing in the game!





Here’s a sneak peak at the Yes Anime! booth. They had some super rad stuff. Stay tuned for our exclusive video tour of their booth later in the week.




Ahhh, the Goodsmile booth. Always awesome. They had the Link Figma and Sonic the Hedgehog Nendoroid on sale, but by the time I decided to go buy them, they were all sold out. =( C’est la vie.



























In case you didn’t know, New York Comic Con is effing HUGE! So huge that I didn’t even know Square Enix had a booth until the last day, and by then everything was sold out and most of their cases were empty. Bummer.






















So, I took way more pics of the Bandai booth, but the files on my camera are corrupt, which completely sucks. They a plethora of amazingness like Gundam figures (I’ve barely watched that show even though we have a primer on how to watch that show and I bought three!), some sweet Sailor Moon Figma-esque things, Daft Punk stuff, Mega Man stuff, lots and lots of Power Rangers things, and I can’t even remember what else. You’ll just have to settle for these crummy cell phone pics.








That about wraps it up, kids. Hope you enjoyed oggling all these sexy bits of plastic as much as I did on the Comic Con show floor! My wallet is still feeling the sting, but it hurts so good!

Samus and Link Figmas up for Pre-order at Entertainment Earth

I totally missed out on the first wave of the Samus Figma. Luckily I won’t have to pay $100 on eBay for one. Entertainment Earth has them up for pre-order, as well as the Skyward Sword Link figure. They both ship out in January.

Pre-order: Metroid Other M Samus Aran Figma Action Figure
Pre-order: Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword Link Figma Action Figure

Link From Skyward Sword Now In Figma Form!

It’s about damn time! Good Smile Company announced the Skyward Sword version of Link from the one and only Zelda series will be available this October for around $50. He comes with multiple facial expressions, the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, Figma stand, and a cool swooshy sword swipey effect thingamajig.

Clearly, this isn’t the type of thing you leave in the box in order to preserve its mint condition. No, these are meant to taken out of the box and posed to turn your boring old shelves into epic scenes of awesomeness.

This is the White Rock Shooter Figma that Good Smile showed off at their WonCon booth this year. It’s by far one of the greatest looking Figmas to date and the only way to get it is with the Black Rock Shooter PSP game coming to Japan later this year. Check out the always awesome Danny Choo for more.

DAVID CHOE x UPPER PLAYGROUND x GOOD SMILE COMPANY PRESENT “MUNKO”

Holy freaking crap! Leading brand in the art/designer toy/street fashion scene Upper Playground has joined forces with Japan’s Good Smile Company (the dudes who distribute Figmas!) to become the official distributors of David Choe's Munko blindboxed figures.

This is like a Marvel x DC crossover. Shit’s bananas!

Munko comes in three different sculpts: Munko, Munkosaur, and Munkette.  Munko, comes in 3 colors and 2 textures,  Munkosaur comes in 3 colors with one in a concrete texture,  and Munkette comes in 3 colors, but no textures, but it’s okay because she has boobies and boobies are the only texture you need.

You can pick up a complete set of 12 for $120 or buy them individually blindboxed for $11 each.

Now we’ll just wait here patiently until Good Smile and Max Factory decide to work with some crazy artist from the designer toy scene to make a sick Figma.

Still waiting….
