SDCC 2015 Goku 36

Back in June of this year, Tamashii Nations released a repaint of Son Goku featuring his Go Kanji logo, a new belt, and a new face. Everyone was down, except that it was limited to 300 units and available only in person, at Mexican event. I think most of the DBZ SHF fans first reaction was – WTF? Fast forward to SDCC 2015, and that same figure has been released, this time as a Comic Con exclusive, just with a different box. That definitely bumps the numbers up and lets the hardcore fans get a hold of him for a much more reasonable price. We were able to get a hold of him finally and have done up a photo shoot showing off Goku’s new digs. Check out over 35 HD shots of him in action after the break!

PCS Street Fighter Ryu Progress 1

Pop Culture Shock teased their Street Fighter 1/6 Scale Figures over a year ago. We had seen a few initial teasers, but it had been some time since we last heard anything. Now we finally have an update. It seems that PCS has been working on the sculpt and articulation for the figures since then. They have been trying to make a super articulated figure that hides as many of the points as possible. Unfortunately, they haven’t been happy with the results and are coming to the fans, asking their opinion on where to go next.

The choices are either a super articulated figure, that’s a little less realistic and has most of the joints exposed, or a more realistic looking figure with less articulation. PCS is asking for fans to give them feedback on the PCS Facebook Page. Why not drop them a line and let them know what you think they should do. They have also released a few new images, showing where they were at in figure development (and a side-by-side with the Kids Logic Akuma). Read on for those as well as the full statement by Pop Culture Shock.

Star Wars Black Series Phase 1. Click for larger version.

The Toyark has been rocking Star Wars Black Series since day one. It was a new and updated way for Star Wars fans like ourselves to get back into the collecting game after being out of 3.75 for so long. We’ve loved every minute of it, grabbing the figures and doing the photo shoots for them. The release of Wave 9 (2015 Wave 2) and Deluxe Luke with Wampa marks the end of what we are unofficially calling “Phase 1″. Episode VII is right around the corner – the First Order Stormtrooper, Tie Pilot and Tie Fighter (and we are sure a ton more) will be coming in 6 inch format. We are down with that too! Not to mention more OT, PT & even Rebels characters!

So, let’s celebrate the end of Phase 1 with a 6 Inch Black Series group shot, featuring all the major releases so far in one big ass pic. Below are also links to all our past galleries if you’d like to catch up. Force Friday can’t come soon enough!
