NECA Bad Blood Predator 009

NECA has posted up some new photos of their upcoming Bad Blood Predator. The new figure is based on one of the Predators featured in the Dark Horse Comics Predator: Bad Blood. This is a stand alone, single figure release and not part of the regular Predator series releases. It includes a sword, a spear, assorted trophy heads and features more paint apps than NECA has ever done on a Predator figure.

The Bad Blood Predator is also a bit larger, standing at 8″ tall and he will feature 25 points of articulation. NECA also stated that there are more Dark Horse Comics inspired Predators to come in the future! The figure should be hitting toy shelves soon. See the photos by reading on.

TMNT Retro Figures Restocked

So I spotted this at a Toys “R” Us yesterday. They had just finished restocking the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Retro Figures. These are the reissues of the 80′s toys, which Playmates released last year, and had disappeared from shelves (for the most part) since Christmas.

After spotting this, I popped over to another nearby TRU and saw they had them as well. The assortment, though, appears to be a bit different. Both stores were only stocking the four Ninja Turtles. Missing in the wave were Shredder and Splinter, which were part of the release last year. UPDATE: According to foru member Phantomcrow, Krang and a Foot Soldier are part of this release. These were marked at $8.99 each.

Here’s the latest update from our friends and sponsors at Big Bad Toy Store. Check out the selected pre-orders below, with the full update after the jump.

Starcraft II Kerrigan Queen of Blades Statue 002

Starcraft fans don’t get much in the way of high end collectibles these days. That looks to change with a new statue coming from Sideshow Collectibles. Today they have fully revealed their Starcraft II – Kerrigan Queen of Blades Statue. We did snap a few photos of the statue at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, but now we have much more info on the upcoming statue. From Sideshow:

A creature consumed by pure rage, Kerrigan has been infested, tortured, and hunted. Now, measuring over 25 inches tall, the once-terran ghost of Sarah Kerrigan emerges from her chrysalis, reborn as a vengeful new agent of the Zerg Overmind with the fate of the universe in her hands. Capturing Kerrigan’s feminine yet alien characteristics with extraordinary handcrafted detail, the Kerrigan Queen of Blades Statue will be a must-have for StarCraft fans.

Standing at over 2 foot tall, the Kerrigan Statue is a thing of grotesque beauty that you’ll need to clear some serious shelf space to display. Priced at $379.99, the statue goes on pre-order starting Thursday, August 21. Read on to check out a few photos.

Ryu Press Release

There’s less than 24 hours remaining for the Capo Toy Street Fighter Ryu Kickstarter. Right now, things aren’t looking too hot, but I’ve seen some stranger things happen. If you’re holding out on pledging, now’s the time to jump in. As of this writing, the pledges stand at just over $7,800. Best of luck to Rocco and the Capo Toys crew on the last day.

We’ll update after the Kickstarter ends as well. If there are any major updates between now and then, I’ll try and post them up here. For now, you can check out the Kickstarter by Clicking Here. Also, don’t miss our previous photo gallery showcasing, what would be, the 7″ Scale Street Fighter Series 1 Figures.

Club Eternia 2015 Logo

Fans eagerly awaiting the outcome of the Club Eternia subscription from MattyCollector will have to wait just a tad bit longer. With subscription levels a bit too low to go forward (came in at about 90%), they have re-opened the subs. The new deadline is this Monday, August 25, at 11:59 PM PT. Subs re-open Friday at 9:00 PM PT. If you missed a shot earlier this week to sub, here’s your second chance. Here’s the full update:

Hey He-Fans and She-Ravers,

We are sooooo close! 2015 subs ended with about 90%. A great showing but not quite close enough to go forward. With the end of the vintage line (redone in Classics) in question, we truly do believe in our fan base. We’re going to reopen the subs for an extension window from Friday, 8/22 at 9:00 a.m. PT through Monday, 8/25 at 11:59 PT.

Now is the time to rally! If everyone who sub’d last year would renew, we’d be golden. If you’re on the fence or were thinking of cherry-picking, remember… if the sub does not get that last critical 10% there won’t be a line to cherry-pick.

So please, let’s all come together! All MOTU fans of all eras truly make Classics the greatest MOTU (if not all brands) toy line of all time! I know we can do it! If you’re holding out, remember, unlike any previous year you pretty much know exactly who you’re getting, with our absolute promise to finish the vintage MOTU line, MOTU variants, original POP characters, and A-list New Adventures and media characters.

Let’s come together and make this happen! We really believe in our fans, and we’ve got one last chance. All our cards are on the table… it’s time to go all in!

Subscriptions open Friday, 8/22 at 9:00 a.m. PT through Monday, 8/25 at 11:59 PT.

Here’s (hopefully) to a great 2015!
