Yondu Udonta was a game hunter of the primitive Zatoan tribe, which were humanoid beings who were native to Centauri IV. The first planet system to be colonized outside of the Sun’s solar system. A natural mystic, Yondu travels the galaxy as an elite hunter, tracker, and archer.
Bandai’s Movie Realization line is an alternate take on Star Wars characters where they are re imagined as Feudal Japan warriors. So far we have 2 Darth Vaders, today’s Boba Fett, a Stormtrooper, and there are more on the way. It’s a unique take that isn’t for everyone but you can’t deny that the figures are superbly done for what they are. I highly suggest taking a look after the break and checking out the star of the line so far, Boba Fett, courtesy of site sponsor The Toy Source!

Square Enix has sent out images and info for their upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Superman Play Arts Kai Figure. It seems they are creating a whole new figure as opposed to repainting the Man of Steel Superman they released in 2013. Here’s the info:
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts the clash of two iconic heroes in the DC Comics universe. Now SUPERMAN joins the fray as a Play Arts KAI action figure!
SUPERMAN has established himself as a shining beacon of hope for humanity. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he faces off against BATMAN, the dark hero of the DC Comics universe.
Square Enix has highlighted the noble, classically heroic characteristics of SUPERMAN, in striking contrast with BATMAN’s complex dark aspect. The chest and cape utilize flexible materials, creating a wide range of motion. SUPERMAN’s iconic take-off and landing poses are easily recreated. Square Enix has paid special attention to the fine details, keeping close accuracy to the design of the character in the film, such as the small Kryptonian insignia etched into the waist of his suit. The finishing touches are his accessories, including expressive interchangeable hands, and a face piece that features his powerful heat vision. All this and more make this figure a superb depiction of SUPERMAN.
Figure also includes display stand and interchangeable hand parts.
Pre-orders are live now at Big Bad Toy Store for the figure. It’s listed at $149.99 with a release in June. You can see the new photos by reading on.
Diamond Select Toys sent along the list and photos for this weeks new releases. Here’s what you’ll find at your local comic shops starting today:

Check out the first official look at the finalized Predator: Concrete Jungle – Scarface Predator Figure. The figure is based on the main Predator from the Playstation 2 and Xbox Predator: Concrete Jungle video game. NECA has shared the image, which shows the fully painted figure as well as the accessories that will be included. Scarface Predator includes interchangeable masked and unmasked heads, and at least two weapons from the game.
New official description from NECA has been added below:
The city is your battle ground, and the prize… redemption. From the 2005 video game Concrete Jungle, Scarface is on the hunt as a 7” scale action figure!
Surviving over a century of forced exile on a harsh planet earned the disgraced Predator a chance to redeem himself. Now he’s come to Neonopolis to kill the humans who stole and exploited his technology. This ultimate rendition of Scarface stands over 8″ tall, with over 30 points of articulation for great poses. Scarface is extra-detailed, and comes with two interchangeable head sculpts, plus Spear Gun and Maul accessories. Comes in special window box packaging with opening flap that recreates the look of the original video game box.
Release Date: June 2016
