Android 16 comes with 3 interchangeable face parts (yelling, laughing, and battle damage design) perfect for recreating your favorite Dragon Ball scenes!

SH Monsterarts King Kong 061

The SH Monsterarts King Kong, based on the Peter Jackson’s 2005 King Kong film, was released earlier this year. I had the good fortune to grab this at NJCC last weekend. The figure looked pretty amazing, so I wanted to do up a shoot. And since it’s been out a bit, I decided to have some fun by doing a Godzilla vs King Kong shoot with NECA’s 12″ Head-To-Tail Godzilla 2014 Figure. In the movies, this Godzilla would tower over King Kong, but as figures, they work fantastically together.

Read on to check out over 60 photos as well as my thoughts on the figure (Spoiler: It’s an awesome figure).

NECA Enforcer Predator 006

Predator Series 12 figures should be hitting toy shelves in about a month. NECA is prepping fans for their latest wave with photos of the upcoming figures. Their latest set of images give us a great look at the upcoming Enforcer Predator from Series 12. The character is featured in Dark Horse Comics’ Predator: Bad Blood comic book series. The figure stands at 8″ tall, features 25 points of articulation, and includes a shoulder cannon, a combi-stick and a smart-disc. The Enforcer Predator is scheduled to hit in September with the rest of Predator Series 12.

DST Sin City Select 52

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is in theaters this weekend, so what better time to showcase the awesome 7 inch figures from Diamond Select Toys! DST announced the Sin City license earlier this year, and they have a wide array of stuff including drinkware, Minimates, games, and Select action figures. The Select figures follow the Marvel style with large bubble packaging and intricate display bases. These follow the Sin City motif with a black and white theme, though they are actually varying shades of blue-gray which works well. Read on to check our thoughts and photo session with Marv, Hartigan and Nancy after the break!
