Guardians of the galaxy hot toys china display2

It would seem that China is gearing up for the release of Guardians of the Galaxy at their Super Shopping Mall TaiKoo Hui, with a huge display by Hot Toys and Marvel Studios! A rendition of Star-Lord’s spaceship “Milano” as seen in the film is set up, and visitors can go inside to see the authentic costumes of Star-Lord, Gamora and Nova Corpsman. A range of Hot Toys 1/6th scale Collectible Figures from Guardians of the Galaxy and real-like prop of The Orb, life-size statue of Rocket are also on display.

Check out all the Guardians of the Galaxy images after the jump.

sideshow biker scout 02

Sideshow Collectibles dropped their Sixth Scale Star Wars Biker Scout and Speeder Bike for Pre-Order. There will also be Sideshow Exclusive versions of the figure and bike. The figure will run $189.99, and the bike will cost you $299.99. Check out over 20 images of the set after the break, details below! You can Pre-Order here.

Scout Trooper Sixth Scale Figure

Far more mobile than Stormtrooper units, Imperial Scout Troopers were assigned to the forest moon of Endor to patrol perimeters, perform reconnaissance missions, and identify enemy positions. Armed to provide rear-guard cover, the Scout Troopers are trained as efficient survivalists, equipped with lightweight armor, utility belt, a sidearm boot holster, and helmets with enhanced macrobinocular view plates for efficient target acquisition. Displayed with the modular forest terrain Scene Stealer Base Accessory*, or piloting the Sixth Scale Speeder Bike, these loyal scouts are ready to be assigned to their post.

The Sideshow Exclusive Edition of the Scout Trooper Sixth Scale Figure will also include an E-11 Long Rifle accessory.

Sixth Scale Speeder Bike

The highly-detailed rapid-transport reconnaissance vehicle boasts a sleek design with a military grade repulsorlift engine, power cell, and a simple blaster cannon for defense. Built for maneuverability, it features articulated foot pedals, engine flaps, and steering vanes to achieve the perfect action display, with or without a pilot.

The Sideshow Exclusive Edition of the Sixth Scale Speeder Bike will also include a special Aratech 74-Z Specification Card, which can be exhibited alongside the figure as a companion accessory.

YOU! Should be buying SHF DBZ.

The Dragonball saga of Goku and friends has been going on since 1985. Staying (for the most part) in continuity for almost 30 years. We’ve seen Goku rise from a child to having grand-children. Luckily Saiyans age much slower :). With the recent release of a new DBZ movie – Battle of the Gods – it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon.

The Dragonball Z S.H. Figuarts line has been around since late 2010, with the first release of Piccolo. The line has steadily progressed with 4 releases a year, currently boasting 16 pieces in all. I’ve personally been collecting it since SDCC 2011, where I randomly picked up a SDCC exclusive Goku while browsing around the Bluefin booth. I skipped a couple here and there, but eventually went back and got them anyway. The line continues to impress, giving fans of the series a modern, highly poseable, visually accurate version of the classic characters. It’s continually been a high point in my collecting, constantly looking forward to the next release more than most other figures and lines out there.

Today, we are starting a gallery-per-day trek to update Toyark.com with full galleries of every single Dragonball Z S.H. Figuarts available. We’ll go in order of release and at the end, we’ll collect it all on one page for everyone to reference moving forward. So, without further chatter, check out over 35 high res images of S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Piccolo!

Make sure to check back each day for the next 2 weeks as we celebrate SHF DBZ!

Square Enix is at the Tokyo Game Show 2014, and they have a display of figures out for the masses to take in. Most are what were seen at SDCC 2014 (here and here), but there are some new gems.

Mega Bloks call of duty nuke town map

MEGA BLOKS has just released images of two new upcoming video game sets. The first is the MEGA BLOKS Call of Duty Nuketown map.

The second is the MEGA BLOKS Assassin’s Creed Fortress Attack set that pairs with the Borgia Guard brick set.

Looks like Square Enix will be doing Star Wars the same way they are doing DC – crazy off the wall “variant” versions. Instead of trying to mimic the look directly, they will apply their unique styling to the 9-11 inch Play Arts Kai action figures for Star Wars characters. Lead Designer Hidemi Matsuzuka dropped this pic recently and put all the whispers to rest, so check out Play Arts Kai Variant Darth Vader after the break!
