Next up in our look at items that released early at NYCC from Bluefin and Tamashii Nations is the S.H. Figuarts Star Lord and Explosion set. This is another S.H. Figuarts release pairing a figure with a Tamashii Nations accessory piece. The explosion set consists of 3 exploding pieces in neon pink, playing off the funky tones seen on GotG. Star Lord dropped in Japan solo a while back, but the US version won’t be hitting state side for a bit. We’ve done up over 45 HD images so read on to check it and some additional thoughts out!
Tamashii Nations Marvel S.H. Figuarts release here in the States with added accessories. Iron Man has come with his Hall of Armor pieces, Dr. Strange came with his Flame Effects, and Spider-Man is coming with a modular wall piece. Today’s shoot looks at Spidey from Homecoming, the tech suit version. There is a home-made suit coming, also with a wall, soon. Spiderman features a full range of articulation, multiple eyes, tons of extra hands, a backpack, cellphone, and multiple webs. The webbing on the suit is slightly raised and there is texture throughout. The wall can be broken down and re-configured into a corner piece or straight front-on wall, depending on your needs. Each wall piece has multiple pop-out bricks that reveal a port for standard Tamashii stands to be inserted. It comes with one that has a u-bracket for resting Spidey in those swinging poses. All in all it’s a great set, read on to check some additional thoughts and 60 HD pics!
DC Icons is coming to an end with the arrival of DC Essentials next year, but we still have some before that happens! Select figures from the later waves that never released are dropping at the end of 2017, and one of those is the Super Sons 2 pack. This features Rebirth versions of Damian Wayne and Jon Kent in the small-ish 6 inch scale, meaning they are more like 4 inches or so. Each come with additional hands, Damian has hands with batarangs, along with a staff weapon. Jon has a clear riser so he can hover behind Damian. The sculpts and paint are fantastic overall.

The Four Horsemen relayed via email that the new Power Lords line will not be moving forward. They put all the items up for pre-order, and even added in some troop builders, but the numbers just weren’t there. They only hit about 2/3rds of what they would have needed to proceed. All of us who did place pre-orders had them cancelled and the holds on cards have been released. We are saddened to hear this but that’s business. Hopefully some of these great sculpts can work their way out later on in some other way. You can read their full statement below.
Well we tried, and we want to thank everyone who pre-ordered, supported, and helped to spread the word for the Power Lords pre-order, but unfortunately, we just weren’t able to reach the milestone we needed to reach in order to be able to move forward with production. We were able to get about 2/3 of the way to where we needed to be, but even with support from outside resources, that still wasn’t quite enough to do the trick.
So, as much as we hate to say it, the Power Lords pre-orders through Store Horsemen are all being cancelled right now, the authorizations for the credit cards that were used are being cancelled, and those of you who placed pre-orders should be getting some sort of notice about that very soon.
We’re sincerely sorry that we couldn’t make this happen. Power Lords has been a passion of ours since childhood, but the numbers just aren’t there at the moment. We were able to gain some data from this experiment that will help us in some of our future sales and pre-orders, so it’s not completely a wash on our end. Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who tried hard to make this happen, but it just wasn’t a possibility this time around.
For now at least, Adam Power and the rest of the Power Lords are going to leave our solar system and go off on some top secret missions beyond the stars. Wish them luck!

Just a heads up to all our fans planning on visiting New York Comic Con 2017 this weekend – Bluefin Brands and Tamashii Nations will have several pieces in stock and ready for purchase at the show that have not hit retailers in the United States yet. Most of these are not hitting US Retailers for another 1-2 months.
This will be your first chance to purchase and go home with S.H. Figuarts Homecoming Spiderman with Option Act Wall, S.H. Figuarts GotG Vol. 2 Star Lord with Explosion Set and S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Super Saiyan 3 Goku.
In addition to this, there is VERY limited stock available for 2 higher end pieces – the R2-D2 Bandai CHOGOKIN x 12 Perfect Model and the Bandai Hobby PG Millennium Falcon.
All of these can be bought at the Bluefin booth #1612 at NYCC all weekend!
We grabbed our copies of some of these today, read on to check out some teaser shots for Spidey, Star Lord and Goku! Full sets for each coming soon!
QMX continues to drop adorable mini figures in the form of their Q-Fig line. Q-Figs are meant to capture “the whimsy nature of a child cosplaying as their favorite character”. Their Marvel Universe offerings have been top notch, emoting fun and youthfulness on first glance. They’ve recently released Rocket and Groot to match their Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. We’ve run the little guys through the motions, check some shots after the break!
Fox’s Gotham TV show is a guilty pleasure. It’s a mix of campy 60s Batman and raw violence. The story is all over the place, forging it’s own way in a definitively alt-universe. It’s got a love hate relationship with the fans, but Diamond Select Toys figures for the series have been great. Series 4 has just been released, consisting of Mr. Freeze, Azrael, and Hugo Strange. Each come with a Diorama piece, which have all been fantastic since the start. Mr. Freeze and Azrael come with a repaint of Series 1’s two story alleyway piece. This time it’s got a brick tone to it with Joker themed graffiti. Hugo Strange comes with his laboratory chair so he can experiment on any 7 inch scale figure in your arsenal. Each also come with additional accessories which you can see in the pics after the break!
The second Black Series vehicle to drop during Star Wars The Last Jedi toy releases is the retail edition of Luke Skywalker and his X-34 Landspeeder. This was Luke’s ride while on Tatooine before going off planet in A New Hope. The figure and vehicle were released at San Diego Comic Con 2017 as an exclusive, which we did an in depth gallery for here. This is the same thing, with some changes, both major an minor, to the figure and vehicle. Read on to check out what’s different and see over 40 HD images courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
