The Black Series backlog is starting to unclog and the next wave of Deluxe figures are hitting, specifically Deluxe wave 2 Han Solo with Tauntaun! This is yet another classic look for Han after his Episode IV standard and Stormtrooper looks, this time from Empire in his Hoth gear. Oh yeah, he comes with a fully articulated Tauntaun as well. :). We’ve run him through the motions and did up 35 shots of him in action, check them out after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Thanks to @TWDNetherlands on Twitter, we have word on two more figures making their way to McFarlane’s Walking Dead TV Series 8. It looks like we’re getting a new Tyreese and Carol Peletier for the wave. Tyrese will come with his trusty hammer and what looks like a swappable arm piece (poor Tyrese). Carol is coming in her awesome Terminus attack attire, complete with muddy face and bloody poncho. Series 8 is stacking up this way right now:
- Morgan Jones
- Dale Horvath
- Bob Stookey
- Rick Grimes
- Eugene Porter
- Carol Peletier
All are scheduled for an October release. Rumor is that Tyreese and Carol are Walgreens Exclusives. We don’t have confirmation of that yet, but wanted to share that with you all. Read on to see the new 3D models and updated group shot.
Over on their Instagram, Pop Culture Shock has shared a new behind-the-scenes image. The photo shows off the in-progress sculpting on their American Werewolf in London Kessler Wolf 1/4 Scale Statue. We got a preview for this statue last week, but the new image gives us a look at the full statue sculpt, which shows off the size the final Kessler Wolf Statue will have.

Kinetiquettes has revealed a new diorama concept. The Street Fighter “Battle of the Brothers” 1/6 Scale Dioramas will allow collectors to piece together select Street Fighter statue to create their own epic showdowns. It will feature the following possible match-ups:
- Gouki vs Gouken
- Gouki vs Ryu/Ken
- Gouken vs Ryu/Ken
- Ryu vs Ken
As you can see from the artwork, there are a number of different ways to pose these. Allowing for swappable pieces on the characters as well as the statue bases. It’s all still in the concept phase, so expect poses and style to change before it is sent to production.
Check out the concept art by reading on.
Two new Revoltech Vehicles have been revealed by Kaiyodo. Thanks to Tag Hobby, we have some images to share. They have announced and revealed the first images for the following:
- Back to the Future 2 – DeLorean
- Star Wars – X-Wing
Details are being kept mostly under wraps right now. We have a bit of info on the X-Wing. We know that is scheduled for a release in August at a price of 5,500 Yen (about $45 USD). It will include a miniature Luke Skywalker and R2-D2.
Right now, we don’t have too much on the DeLorean other than it being a special offer for 2015. Still waiting on release date and pricing info. Previous Kaiyodo vehicles have measured in the 6″ to 8″ range, so expect both of these to come in around that size.

Last week The Toyark and Comicave Studios ran a contest giving away a copy of Play Imaginative’s War Machine Mark II quarter scale die cast figure. We needed a bit of time to get in contact with the winner but we squared it all up and let him know he’s officially won. And the winner is… Radd Roberson! He liked both our Facebook pages and was randomly picked. Congratulations! Comicave Studios will be sending out the figure in the near future.
