Prototype Z Sword of Omens Teaser

New forum member grizzlor shared a link with an update on the previously announced Prototype Z Thundercats License. We hadn’t heard or seen anything since the beginning of the year, but Thundercats Lair managed to snag an update from sculptor Erick Sosa. These will be unpainted resin model kits, with Mumm-Ra and Lion-O being first up. Assembly will be required on these. Their unpainted resin kits sell for between $160 – $230, but there’s been no mention of price at this time.

They are looking for Lion-O to be approved by October. Read on to see a few in-progress 3d sculpts.

LEGO Minecraft 21117 The Ender Dragon

I know a lot of LEGO collectors are not huge fans of the LEGO Minecraft line.

  • LEGO Minecraft 21113 The Cave
  • LEGO Minecraft 21114 The Farm

NECA 1994 Godzilla 053

NECA continues their line of 12″ head-to-tail Godzilla figures with a version of Godzilla based on the 1994 film Godzilla vs Space Godzilla. In the film, Godzilla must face Mogera, a UN created machine as well as a space version of himself. Though not typically considered one of the top Godzilla films, the movie featured a striking design for Godzilla and was one of the last films released prior to the reboot in 1999 (after the disastrous original North American version). Also available in this scale is their previously released Godzilla 2014, as well as their upcoming Godzilla 1985 figure. This figure features over 30 points of articulation and stands at 6″ tall.

We’re pleased to present a full gallery of the figure. We have over 50 photos. Read on to see the pics as well as my thoughts on the 1994 Godzilla figure.
