PAK Steampunk Batman 002

Batman Timeless is the Play Arts Variant line of redesigned Batman figures. Each one is based on either a specific designers vision, or an interpretation of how a Batman would have appeared in a historical setting. The latest entry in the line is the Play Arts Variant Steampunk Batman, a 19th century Victorian-era styled Batman. We had a look at the figure most recently at San Diego Comic-Con 2015.

Square Enix has released two new official photos of the Steampunk Batman. Expect a few more photos as well as pricing and release dates to be revealed soon. You can check out the images by reading on.

First Order Stormtrooper 15

The next phase of Black Series is here! Today we are looking at the San Diego Comic Con 2015 Star Wars Black Series Episode VII First Order Stormrooper. This is the first Star Wars Episode VII figure to be released in any form, and the first for Black Series 6 Inch as well. The figure is based on the new look for Troopers as seen in the trailers so far. Standard black and white, rifle and gun. The armor and helmet are fresh and new yet still touch those classic notes. Let’s see how he stacks up against the classic Trooper after the break, courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!

NJCC Boss Fight 30

Yesterday was the Summer 2015 New Jersey Collectors Con and there was some cool stuff out on display. First, Boss Fight Studio was there and had a wide array of their Kickstarter Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. on display, plus mock ups for the Series 2 Fantasy Figures! Marauder Task Force figures by Marauder Inc were there as well, which are done in tandem with Boss Fight. They also revealed their next phase with mock ups of the Marauder Task Force Valkyries. Toyfinity, producers of the modern Mordles and Robo Force figures were there showing off a bunch of cool stuff including an awesome (or gross, depending on your tastes :) ) movie prop Mordle. Lunar Toy Store had a prototype of a 3rd Party War Within Prime. And lastly customizer extraordinaire KrymsynGardImmoral had a wide selection of crazy customized figures statues and vinyl. Check it all out after the break!

Friday The 13th Part 6 Retro Jason 039

NECA‘s line of retro style 8″ figures continues to impress with their newest release. The Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives – Jason Voorhees Retro 8″ Scale Figure is the latest addition to the ranks. In the sixth film in the long running franchise, Jason is inadvertently brought back to life by the bumbling of Tommy Jarvis and his friend Hawes, who pays with his life. Now a completely unstoppable killing machine, Jason returns to the Crystal Lake area and proceeds to tear through everyone in his path. This installment marks a shift in the series and brought us Jason as an undead killer. What a better way to celebrate the 29th anniversary of the film than to post a gallery of an all new Jason Voorhees figure. NECA was kind enough to send a review sample along. We have nearly 60 photos of the figure.

Check out our NECA Toy Galleries for even more retro figure fun.

PAK Cloud 55

Final Fantasy VII. Cloud Strife. Play Arts Kai. Perfection. As soon as I saw this, knew I had to have it. I am a big Final Fantasy fan, pretty much just FFVII too. I long for the days of countless hours wasted world exploring, not being online, just battling and leveling up through 3 discs of greatness all by my lonesome. It was an epic story and as much as Square wants to move the FF series forward, they can’t, because this stuff is just too awesome.

Advent Children was also a worthy sequel to the game, ahead of it’s time IMO and still holds up 10 years later. Square originally did Advent Children figures in their Play Arts (no Kai) line early in their figure career. They were good, but the last 8 years or so has made them look a bit dated. Thankfully they are revisiting now that they’ve hulked up with Kai, and Cloud is the perfect upgrade to the original offering. Check out over 80 shots of him showing off all his different swords and moves after the break, courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Mezco Raiden TRU 15

The Toyark is wrapping up it’s Mezco Mortal Kombat X wave 1 galleries today with Raiden! Raiden is the third of the wave along with Sub-Zero and Scorpion. Even though this is Mortal Kombat X, these three are OG and hit that nostalgia cord well. Their looks are updated yet still touch those classic notes. Raiden in particular is very well done, the paint detailing is stellar. The alternate clear lighting hands are a great touch, and of course the removable traditional hat. We also got a hold of the TRU exclusive Glow in the Dark Raiden, which premiered at SDCC 2015. Same figure, no paint, glows in the dark. Shots of him are in here as well. As with all of these, the pics speak louder than words, so check out almost 50 shots of the two Raidens after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
