Today Super 7 have given an update on the progress for their Wave 1 items, clarifying what they are doing to refine them with pictures showing the differences. They state that they should be going into production by end of the month and shipping by end of November. Read on for their statement and pics of the progress!

Back at SDCC we got wind of a new Playmates Toys Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover – TMNT x Ghostbusters. The concept was awesome, and now that we’ve got them in hand – they came out phenomenal! These are basic figures from an articulation standpoint but are large – a bulky 6 inch scale. Each Turtle mimics a Ghostbuster from the original movies – Mikey is Venkman, Leo is Ray, Donny is Egon, and Raph is Winston. It’s weird seeing the Turtles with hair, but it works great here. Mixed with the facial expressions, they capture the OG Ghostbusters perfectly while keeping their Turtles signature colors. Each come with a PKE meter, a proton pack, ghost trap and ghost. The ghosts are based on ones from the movies with Slimer, the Librarian, Terror Dog, and Subway Ghost. Each of those are done in translucent plastic and are hollowed out, but can stand on their own.
All in all it’s a fun crossover set that both collectors and kids can pick up and enjoy. They will be exclusive to Target later in October and retail for $19.99 each. We ran them through a set so read on to check them out!
Today we are going to take a look a some figures that aren’t normally on my radar – Kinnikuman wrestling figures from Japan. What are these you ask? Well, I’ve seen them floating around for a while now because there are modern figures produced by Tamashii Nations / Bandai, but I never really looked into them. Some were cool looking, some crazy, but it seemed to be a whole intricate world that I just didn’t know about. I got a hold of a couple recently and did a bit of research.
Basically, if you remember M.U.S.C.L.E. from Mattel in the 80s, those little rubber figures that are making a come back via Super 7 now – Kinnikuman is the original Japanese property those were based on. Mattel just imported, renamed, and promoted them as M.U.S.C.L.E. in the States. Since then, Kinnikuman has continued to evolve over the years in Japan with multiple anime shows, video games, and toys. One of those animes even got put out here in the 00s called Ultimate MUSCLE, a play on the Mattel angle.
Tamashii Nations via S.H. Figuarts are doing modern, super articulated versions of all these original M.U.S.C.L.E. figures now. Masterpice M.U.S.C.L.E. if you will. Many have been released in Japan, and they are starting to make their way to the US directly. Today we are taking a look at three – Ashuraman, Kinnikuman Solider, and Brocken Jr. The premise of all these guys is that they are wrestlers. So during the various plots about teams and world domination and so on that of course comes up during an extended Japanese anime – they wrestle, WWE style. That being said, they all have fighting body articulation and work perfectly with the Tamashii Stage Act Ring.
I am no expert in this 30+ year lore at all, but the figures were fun to run through a set with, and some just look cool regardless of where they come from. If you are interested in finding out more about this whole crazy world, I suggest hitting youtube and searching, here’s a starter link. You can also check out some cool M.U.S.C.L.E. archives like Nathan’s M.U.S.C.L.E. Blog and the Univeristy of M.U.S.C.L.E..
Read on to check them out for yourselves, you can grab them at some of our sponsors now!

The Guards are instantly iconic characters coming out of the new movie, hopefully they kick ass on screen and live up to their awesome looks.

NECA has released a full look at the final packaged figure. We’ve added all of the new photos to the story. Read on to check them out.

Kotobukiya has posted details and new official pics of their upcoming Star Wars Emperor Palpatine and Royal Guard ARTFX+ Statue 3-Pack. The set includes a new standing Palpatine statue, different from the Emperor with Throne Statue revealed in June. Also includes are re-releases of the Royal Guard Statues, giving fans a complete scene in one set. The set is due for release in May. See details below and photos after the jump.
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Star Wars ARTFX+ Statues bring you all of the quality and detailing that you expect from an ARTFX release in a great smaller scale perfect for collecting. The classic Saga Collection is chock full of fan-favorite heroes and villains, not to mention lots of great troop builders like Stormtroopers and other soldiers. Now, the Sith Lord ruling the Empire returns to the lineup with two of his loyal guardians in the EMPEROR PALPATINE ROYAL GUARD 3-PACK!
While a previous ARTFX+ Statue of the Emperor captured the dictator sitting on his throne, now he walks among us and is more dangerous than ever! Old and decrepit-looking but so much more powerful than he appears, Palpatine slowly shuffles forward while leaning on his gnarled cane. The villain wears voluminous black robes covering most of his body, and expert craftsmanship has made them resemble real cloth clothing! Only the Emperor’s withered hands and grotesque face emerge from his robes, reaching forward as if to offer a place by his side while he ruthlessly calculates your potential. Meanwhile, selected from the best of the best Stormtroopers selflessly devoted to the Emperor are Palpatine’s Royal Guard! They are given additional training, a deadly close combat weapon, and a distinctive uniform that makes them immediately recognizable. These two elite Guards (identical to those in the previously released Royal Guard 2-Pack) are screen accurate and stand at strict attention in their crimson robes and helmets while holding their unique force pikes at their right shoulders.
ARTFX+ Statues are fun-to-assemble pre-painted snap-fit kits that can be easily put together in seconds without glue or modeling skill. Emperor Palpatine stands under 5 ½ inches and his Royal Guards 7 inches (1/10th scale), and will be the perfect additions to your classic Star Wars display. You can even recreate iconic scenes from the films by displaying these with other ARTFX+ Statues like Stormtroopers, Darth Vader Cloud City Ver., and more!

While the game series didn’t ascend to the halls of immortality until its sequel in 1991, Street Fighter debuted in arcades 30 years ago!
